The Marvel Cinematic Universe has had some incredible battles over the years from Iron Man on all the way to Avengers: Endgame. Captain America versus Winter Soldier. The battle of Wakanda in Avengers: Infinity War. That elevator fight scene in Captain America: The Winter Soldier. The action in these fights made for intense moments; however, it isn’t just the action that makes these fight scenes and moments great. A lot of the time it’s rivalries at the heart of the battles which help them stand the test of time.
When people fight, there’s usually some meaning behind it. Sometimes super-powered beings meet and start punching before talking. Those are fun, but it’s not as good as when they have a fierce hatred for each other or their emotions are running high.
When Iron Man first put his suit on to fight the terrorists in the other country, it was a great moment because he was angry. Not only because of what they were doing to innocent people. It was personal. Tony remembered what they did to him and how they were using his weapons. He now had a reason to go after them.
Today, we’re taking a look at the best 15 rivalries in the Marvel Cinematic Universe. Some of them are extreme because of competition. Others come from pure hatred due to a traumatic event. Then there are the few more one-sided rivalries where only one person knows there’s a competition going on.
