Brightest future: Miles Morales (Spider-Man: Into the Spider-Verse)

People have been waiting for a Miles Morales movie for years, and it didn’t disappoint. Miles’ future is brighter than we could have ever imagined. An animated film may not have been everyone’s first choice, but it allowed for more options. Miles now has his own dimension to work in, and he also has his own story. Because of this, there are limitless ways that Miles’ future stories can be told. He can fight all of Spider-Man’s old villains and maybe even some new ones. Since he’s in a universe that isn’t connected to the MCU, the writers don’t have to follow any other storylines except their own. The possibilities for this franchise are endless.

Honorable mention: Arthur Curry (Aquaman)

Worst beating: Thanos VS Hulk (Avengers: Infinity War)

You may not be able to call this a fight per se. It was more of a giant butt whooping. Sure, Hulk got in a few good shots in the beginning, but Thanos just took them on the chin and then proceeded to destroy him. We’ve never seen the Hulk take a whooping like Thanos gave him. Sure, he’s lost a fight, but not like this. Thanos established himself as the big bad within the first few minutes of the movie by taking the strongest person in the MCU and then beating him like a drum. From then on, it was clear that Thanos was not someone to be messed with and that he isn’t like the other villains. He’s more than willing to get his hands dirty.

Honorable mention: Deadpool versus Juggernaut (Deadpool 2)
