Magic within the Marvel Cinematic Universe has always been a very fascinating topic. The first users of Magic in the MCU (according to the movies we watches chronologically) were perhaps the Asgardians and Marvel introduced us to the world of Sorcerers fully in 2016 with the release of Doctor Strange.
Since then, Magic in Marvel and MCU’s magic users have only become stronger with time and Marvel’s upcoming Magnum Opus Doctor Strange in the Multiverse of Madness is all about its world of magic and its two best users of magic.
In this article, we shall be discussing the Top 10 Most powerful sorcerers in MCU.
10. Karl Mordo
Karl Mordo is a master of the Mystic arts and he assisted in the training of Doctor Strange. Although he has great powers, he has not been given the chance to shine in the MCU yet. His most impressive feat so far was draining the powers from Pangborn who, according to him, was misusing the mystic arts for personal gains. However, we are likely to see a much more powerful version of him in Doctor Strange in the Multiverse of Madness.
Wong is currently the Sorcerer Supreme as Doctor Strange had been blipped by Thanos. He is one of the strongest practitioners of the mystic arts and although he is not as strong as Doctor Strange, he has held his ground in several battles and has great potential.
Kaecilius is a master of the Mystic arts beyond the powers that Wong or Mordo could possibly muster. Ancient called him a prodigy and Kaecilius himself believes that he is better than any Sorcerer in the world other than Ancient One herself.
After being branded by Dormammu, Kaecilius received powers from the Dark Dimension which further multiplied his already formidable strength.
7. Agatha Harkness
Agatha Harkness is an extremely experienced witch and she has a vast knowledge of witchcraft. Having had the Book of Darkhold for so long, Agatha Harkness knows her way around with dark magic and the fact that she could fool Wanda in her own reality for so many days and toy with her mind, shows how powerful Agatha is.
Agatha can also absorb the powers of others, enchant objects and control others with her abilities.
Loki is one of the best users of Magic in the Marvel Cinematic Universe. Although we have mostly seen him using his magic to fool others, the Loki series has perhaps shown us the most powerful version of Loki’s magic.
In the first Avengers movie, we saw that Loki could control the minds of others using his magic and he could also teleport and make several duplicate forms of himself just like Doctor Strange.
However, he displayed the strongest use of his magic in the final episode of the Loki series where he and Sylvie defeated Alioth using his magic.
5. The Ancient One
The Ancient One is insanely powerful, even more, so that what we see in her first fight in Doctor Strange (2016) against Kaecilius and his army. The Ancient One is said to have complete knowledge about each and every book in the library of Kamar-Taj because she lived for several lifetimes due to her connection with the Dark dimension. She draws powers from the Dark dimension but unlike Kaecilius, has control on these powers and is not a slave to Dormammu.
She is also a master at controlling her and others’ Astral Form and can also send others to any other dimension. She undoubtedly deserves to be in the Top 5 on the list of Most Powerful Sorcerers in MCU.
4. MCU Doctor Strange
The Ancient one said in Doctor Strange (2016) that Strange was destined to be the Strongest of all the practitioners of Mystic Arts including herself and Agamotto. Kevin Feige himself said that between the first Doctor Strange movie and Infinity War, Strange has improved a lot as a sorcerer and he is always learning. His eidetic memory and strong will to learn to give him an edge over most of his rivals.
In Avengers: Infinity War, Doctor Strange fought against Thanos without even using the Time Stone and he almost defeated the Mad Titan. Thanos had to use four of the infinity stones to defeat Dr Strange which shows how powerful he is. We will see more of his powers in the upcoming movie Doctor Strange in the Multiverse of Madness.
3. Morgan le Fay
Most of you might not be familiar with the name of Morgan le Fay but believe me when I saw that she is one of the most powerful Sorcerers in MCU. Morgan le Fay appeared in Marvel’s Runaways show and many consider her ‘too strong to contend with’.
She battled against the Staff of One, an ancient relic with powers that dwarf that of most masters like Wong and Kaecilius. Morgan is sometimes even referred to as being more powerful that the Staff itself. The staff of one gives its users powers to warp reality and many other immensely strong powers.
Morgan can nullify the negative effects of Dark dimensions, can enchant objects, manipulate elements, teleport, heal herself and also control time without using the Time Stone.
2. Scarlet Witch
After watching Wandavision, perhaps every Marvel fan knows that Wanda Maximoff is not only the Greatest Sorcerer in the Marvel Cinematic Universe but she is also arguably its strongest character. In Avengers: Endgame, Wanda single-handedly demolished Thanos and in WandaVision, she warped reality without even knowing her fullest potential.
In the final episode of the series, Wanda learned about her reality in the Book of Darkhold. She absorbed the powers of Agatha Harkness and transformed fully into Scarlet Witch. In the post-credit scene, we could see that Scarlet Witch was reading the Book of Darkhold and she had already learnt to astrally project her soul while also working normally with her physical body which is something that even Dr Strange can not do.
We will be able to see a lot more powers of Scarlet Witch in Doctor Strange in the Multiverse of Madness.
1. Strange Supreme
We saw Strange Supreme in the fourth episode of Marvel’s ‘What If…?’ which was their first animated Disney+ project. In this alternate universe, Strange lost his love, Christine Palmer, in the car accident instead of his hands and a grieved Doctor Strange tried to change an absolute point in time to bring her back. However, he needed a great deal of power to do so and thus he turned towards dark magic and started absorbing the powers of creatures from the Dark dimension.
In the end, he is able to defeat an alternate version of himself and he brings back Christine Palmer but his desecration of reality caused his universe to be destroyed and everything was gone including Christine. Supreme Strange thus remained in his solemn state of solace for eternity.
However, the Watcher called Supreme Strange later in the final episode to fight Ultron alongside the Guardians of the Multiverse and we saw the full potential of Supreme Strange’s powers in that episode. It was like never we have never witnessed before. He literally absorbed the powers of the 6 infinity stones and nullified the effect of Ultron’s snap, completely shocking him. He is too powerful for live-action MCU and he would absolutely destroy even Scarlet Witch. Due to this reason, he tops the list of the most powerful sorcerers in MCU.
