There are plenty of clear fan favorites in the Marvel Cinematic Universe. Characters like Captain America, Luis, Spider-Man and Tony Stark. But who loves to hate hard on die-hards?
It’s hard to believe that many characters can generate such strange excitement in their core demographic, especially with the old comic book adage that “every character is someone’s favorite.” But Reddit’s home for Marvel discussion is now digging deep to find out who they collectively hate the most.
She might have broken records by becoming the first woman to land a $1 billion superhero movie, but poor Carol Danvers/Captain Marvel still isn’t quite the darling. At least Kamala Khan absolutely adores her.
Leader of the Guardians of the Galaxy, dropper during infinity war, and the human male Peter Quill/Star Lord isn’t much more loved. One commenter said that they just “can’t stand” the Guardians as a group due to Chris Pratt’s character.
Then there’s John Walker, who is designed to be obnoxious.. The Falcon and the Winter Soldier the secondary villain gets some redemption, but it’s clear he’s not a good guy at all. Which again, is the point. He is the corrupted version of Steve Rogers and a critique of that type of character.
Although some also point out possible hypocrisy in the way fans view John Walker, with one post noting the double standards between him, Loki, and Scarlet Witch. This is true, only one of them has not committed mass murder so far.
Look no further for Wanda-stans, because the crossbow is ready for her now. A user who says that she has been unpleasant since Phase Four began, calling multiverse of madness a character assassination.
John Walker is expected to return in the next Ray movie, alongside fan-favorite Yelena Belova, and probably Baron Zemo.
The Falcon and the Winter Soldier is available to stream on Disney Plus.
