6+ Post-Endgame Superheroes That Could Have Made The Thanos Battle Much Easier

4 years have passed ever since Avengers: Endgame, and Thanos still remains the most fearsome villain in the entire franchise. The Mad Titan excels in both intellect and physical prowess, making him nigh unbeatable for the Avengers. Remember that time when he takes on both the Avengers and the Guardians of the Galaxy on Titan? 
Not even the Hulk at full strength nor Captain America with Mjolnir was able to put a scratch on him. While the superheroes managed to defeat him in the end, the price they had to pay was too big, further proving how ridiculously strong the Mad Titan was.
Coincidentally, after Thanos’ death, Marvel Studios started introducing more and more ridiculously powerful superheroes in Phases 4 and 5. Had they arrived earlier, they could have made the Battle for the Earth much easier for the Avengers, heck, some of them could even dispatch the Titan on their own. Let's learn more about who these heroes are.

#1. Shang-Chi (Shang-Chi and the Legends of the Ten Rings)

At the end of Shang-Chi and the Legends of the Ten Rings, Simu Liu’s character receives the power of the Ten Rings from his father Wenwu, and immediately puts them to good use. Wielding the rings in a spectacular manner, he destroys the Dweller-in-Darkness with relative ease.

If this version of Shang-Chi appeared in Endgame, the battle against Thanos could have been much easier. Not to mention, he literally has a dragon god on his side, who can easily dispatch multiple flying beasts at once.


#2. Namor The Submariner (Black Panther: Wakanda Forever)

Namor isn’t exactly a superhero, but as Thanos' army’s presence could cause harm to his kingdom, there’s a chance that he’d side with the Avengers to help protect his own kind. Just like Black Panther, Namor has a huge army of aggressive Talokan warriors who are almost unstoppable if they’re near a water source.

And in case anyone is afraid that they’re getting dried up in the midst of battle, do take note that there’s a huge underground water source under the battlefield of Endgame.


#3. G’iah (Secret Invasion)

Secret Invasion might be a Disney+ stinker, but it introduces to us one of the most powerful superheroes in the MCU up to date. After consuming the Harvest, G’iah gains access to literally every power there is of both friends and foes in the Endgame battle, including Thanos’ himself.

As she can copy every skill from every hero, including Carol Danvers, there’s a high chance that G’iah can even defeat the Mad Titan in a one-on-one battle. Better not get on her bad side.


#4. Adam Warlock (Guardians Of The Galaxy Vol 3)

In the comics, Adam Warlock is actually a crucial member of the Avengers, who leads the team to win against Thanos, and is as equally strong as the villain. The MCU version of Warlock hasn’t reached that level just yet, but his raw power can still cause the Mad Titan some serious trouble.

#5. The Eternals (Eternals)

It’s still a mystery why the Eternals, with the responsibility to protect Earth, refused to show up when the Endgame battle commenced. Their sheer presence could have changed the flow of the fight in a much more favorable way for the heroes’ side.

I mean, they literally had an MCU version of Superman, a super speedster, a guy who shoots cosmic projectiles to the army, a warrior who can turn lights into weapons, and a leader who can manipulate physical matter. Thanos wouldn’t stand a chance against this team, yet they were nowhere to be found when humanity needed them most.


#6. Loki (Loki Season 2)

The latest Season 2 ending shows us the best version of the God of Mischief, now turning into the God of Stories. With the newfound power at hand, now Loki can freely manipulate time at his own will, time-slipping, and has access to every timeline there is in the Multiverse. If he’s not burdened with his own glorious purpose right now, he could have returned to the past and easily defeated Thanos with a snap of his finger.

Do you think the aforementioned superheroes could have defeated Thanos on their own? Are there any Phases 4 and 5 heroes who can achieve the same feat? Let us know in the comments.
