10 Times Hulk Was The Best Hero In The MCU

Hulk is one of the best superheroes in the Marvel Cinematic Universe. Not only has he saved a lot of people by fighting against those who threatened Earth and the entire universe, such as Loki and Thanos, but he has also helped a lot of people as Bruce Banner due to his intellect.

While the other superheroes in the Marvel Cinematic Universe have accomplished a lot, Hulk is arguably the most heroic of them all. He has teamed up with other heroes to protect as many people as he could but has also accomplished impressive feats on his own without the help of his comrades.

10 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 up against them. While Captain America, Black Widow, Hawkeye, Iron Man, and Thor also fought them, Hulk arguably made the most impact. Hulk worked hard to save the city, jumping around from building to building, smashing every Chitauri he saw, and even taking out Leviathans. Without Hulk and the other Avengers, many people would have died and Loki likely would have ruled over Earth.

9 He Defeated Loki (Avengers)


Fighting the Chitauri is far from the most heroic thing Hulk did in Avengers. He was also the one to defeat Loki. While the other Avengers engaged Loki in combat as well, they were unable to beat him. Thor tried to take down his mischievous brother, but Loki was able to escape.

Once Hawkeye shot an explosive arrow at him, Loki flew into Stark Tower, where Hulk beat him up. After the Avengers saved New York, they gathered around the Frost Giant and sent him back to Asgard.


8 He Saved Iron Man (Avengers)


Iron Man’s most heroic act in Avengers was when he brought a missile headed towards the city into outer space, destroying the Chitauri’s fleet. However, he was not able to control himself on his way back down and headed towards the ground too quickly, almost dying in his effort to protect New York. Luckily, Hulk was able to reach Iron Man before he could crash. Hulk caught his comrade and took the brunt of the fall, saving Iron Man’s life. In later Avengers movies, the two heroes became 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 went onto the Quinjet and began shooting them. In order to stop the onslaught, Hulk leaped up to the Quinjet and pushed Ultron out of it, leaving his comrades to deal with their enemy. Without Hulk’s quick thinking, Ultron may have won the battle and killed the Avengers. When Natasha tried to talk Hulk into returning, he decided to leave Earth and eventually ended up on 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 her, Thor recruited several heroes, including Hulk, to save his people and defeat his sister. While Thor, Valkyrie, and Loki teamed up to fight Hela, Hulk fought her wolf Fenris all on his own. Fenris posed a massive threat to the Asgardians, but Hulk was able to secure everyone’s safety by engaging the wolf and defeating her. After Thor destroyed Asgard in order to save his people, Hulk joined the Asgardians in their search for a new home.


5 He Attacked Thanos (Avengers: Infinity War)

As Hulk and the Asgardians traveled through space during Avengers: Infinity War, Thanos and the Black Order invaded them. Hulk tackled Thanos on Loki’s cue in hopes that Thanos would not be able to take the Tesseract.

Hulk landed a few punches on Thanos at first and backed him into a wall, being one of the few heroes in the Marvel Cinematic Universe who could inflict damage on him. Hulk was overpowered shortly after, but Heimdall helped him escape to Earth.


4 He Warned Earth About Thanos (Avengers: Infinity War)


As Hulk returned to Earth in Avengers: Infinity War, he turned into Bruce and warned 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 while Bruce explained how great of a threat Thanos would be to the entire universe. Before they could draw up a plan, members of the Black Order attacked them. Doctor Strange, Iron Man, and some of the other heroes quickly responded and fought back against the Order. If it were not for Bruce, they would not have had any idea what was coming.




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 at Wakanda. Because his fight against Thanos left him traumatized, Hulk was too afraid to come out, forcing Bruce Banner to instead battle from inside the Hulkbuster. Bruce and the other heroes put up a good fight and did everything they could to keep the universe safe. But once Thanos arrived, he made good on his threat and make half of all living creatures disappear. Bruce was one of the heroes who remained, hopeful 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 eventually discovered a way to save everyone who faded away. They embarked on journey back in time to retrieve the Infinity Stones before Thanos could, brought the stones back, and used the Infinity Gauntlet to bring back the people who disappeared. Hulk retrieved the Time Stone when he went to New York while his past self-fought the Chitauri. Although she hesitated to give it to him at first, Hulk convinced the Ancient One to let him have the Time Stone, 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’d vanished. His comrades had debated on who would complete the task as the impact of using the Infinity Gauntlet could result in them being greatly injured or dead. In a moment of incredible courage, Hulk reversed Thanos’ “snap” and restored those who’d been lost for five years. Afterwards, all of the superheroes fought against Thanos and his army once again, this time defeating them and maintaining the universe’s safety.
