10 Times The Hulk Was The MCU’s Best Hero
Hulk is one of the best superheroes in the Marvel Cinematic Universe. Not only did he save a lot of people by fighting against those who threatened the Earth and the entire universe, like Loki and Thanos, but he also helped a lot of people as Bruce Banner thanks to his intellect.
While the other superheroes in the Marvel Cinematic Universe have achieved a lot, Hulk is arguably the most heroic of them all. He teamed up with other heroes to protect as many people as possible, but also performed impressive feats on his own without help from his comrades.
ten He fought the Chitauri (Avengers)
When Loki sent the alien Chitauri to attack New York in avengers, Hulk was one of the few heroes to stand against them. While Captain America, Black Widow, Hawkeye, Iron Man, and Thor also battled them, Hulk arguably had the most impact. Hulk worked hard to save the city, jumping from building to building, smashing every Chitauri he saw, and even taking out Leviathans. If not for the Hulk and the other Avengers, many people would have died and Loki would likely have ruled Earth.
9 He defeated Loki (Avengers)
Fighting the Chitauri is far from the most heroic thing the Hulk has done in avengers. He was also the one who defeated Loki. While the other Avengers also engaged Loki in battle, they were unable to defeat him. Thor tried to take down his mischievous brother, but Loki managed to escape.
Once Hawkeye fired an explosive arrow at him, Loki flew to Stark Tower, where Hulk defeated him. After the Avengers rescued New York, they rallied around the Frost Giant and sent him back to Asgard.
8 He saved Iron Man (Avengers)
Iron Man’s Most Heroic Deed avengers was when he brought a missile aimed at the city in outer space, destroying the Chitauri fleet. However, he couldn’t control himself on the way down and headed for the ground too quickly, nearly dying in his efforts to protect New York. Fortunately, the Hulk was able to reach Iron Man before he could crash. Hulk grabbed his comrade and took the brunt of the fall, saving Iron Man’s life. Later avengers movies, the two heroes have become very close friends.
7 He threw Ultron out of the Quinjet (Avengers: Age Of Ultron)
When the Avengers fought Ultron in Avengers: Age of Ultron, the villain got on the Quinjet and started shooting at them. In order to stop the assault, Hulk jumped on the Quinjet and pushed Ultron away, leaving his comrades to deal with their enemy. If not for Hulk’s quick thinking, Ultron might have won the battle and killed the Avengers. When Natasha tried to convince Hulk to return, he decided to leave Earth and eventually ended up in Sakaar, where he would reunite with Thor in Thor: Ragnarok.
6 He helped save the Asgardians (Thor: Ragnarok)
In Thor: Ragnarok, Hela attempted to take over Asgard. In order to stop him, Thor recruited several heroes, including the Hulk, to save his people and defeat his sister. While Thor, Valkyrie, and Loki teamed up to battle Hela, Hulk fought his wolf Fenris alone. Fenris posed a massive threat to the Asgardians, but Hulk was able to keep everyone safe by engaging the wolf and defeating her. After Thor destroyed Asgard in order to save its people, Hulk joined the Asgardians in their search for a new home.
5 He attacked Thanos (Avengers: Infinity War)
As the Hulk and the Asgardians traveled through space for Avengers: infinity war, Thanos and the Black Order have invaded them. Hulk attacked Thanos at Loki’s request in hopes that Thanos wouldn’t be able to take the Tesseract.
The Hulk first gave Thanos a few punches and backed him up against a wall, being one of the few heroes in the Marvel Cinematic Universe who can deal damage to him. Hulk was subdued soon after, but Heimdall helped him escape to Earth.
4 He Warned Earth About Thanos (Avengers: Infinity War)
As the Hulk returned to Earth in Avengers: Infinity War, he transformed into Bruce and alerted Doctor Strange, Wong, and Tony that Thanos was on his way to Earth. The four of them tried to figure out their next course of action as Bruce explained what a threat Thanos would be to the entire universe. Before they could come up with a plan, members of the Black Order attacked them. Doctor Strange, Iron Man, and some of the other heroes quickly reacted and fought against the Order. If it hadn’t been for Bruce, they would have had no idea what was about to happen.
3 He fought Thanos’ army in The Hulkbuster (Avengers: Infinity War)
At the end of Avengers: Infinity War, the superheroes on Earth clashed against Thanos’ army in Wakanda. Because his fight against Thanos left him traumatized, the Hulk was too afraid to come out, forcing Bruce Banner to fight from inside the Hulkbuster instead. Bruce and the other heroes fought well and did everything they could to keep the universe safe. But once Thanos arrived, he carried out his threat and wiped out half of all living creatures. Bruce was one of the heroes left behind, hoping that he would one day be able to avenge his fallen comrades.
2 He received the Time Stone (Avengers: Endgame)
In Avengers: Endgame, the remaining superheroes finally figured out a way to save everyone who passed out. They embarked on a time journey to recover the Infinity Stones before Thanos could, brought the stones back, and used the Infinity Gauntlet to bring back the missing people. Hulk retrieved the Time Stone when he went to New York while his past was battling the Chitauri. Although she was hesitant to give it to him at first, Hulk convinced the Ancient One to leave the Time Stone to her, promising to return it and the other Infinity Stones once he completed his mission.
1 He used the Infinity Gauntlet (Avengers: Endgame)
Towards the end of Avengers: Endgame, Hulk was the hero brave enough to bring back everyone who had gone missing. His comrades had debated who would complete the task, as the impact of using the Infinity Gauntlet could seriously injure or kill them. In a moment of incredible courage, Hulk reversed Thanos’ “snap” and restored those who had been lost for five years. Then all the superheroes fought against Thanos and his army again, defeating them this time and keeping the universe safe.
