WARNING: MAJOR SPOILERS for Thor: Love and Thunder are addressed in this article.
Thor: Love and Thunder finally hit theaters, and Christian Bale’s performance as Gorr the God Butcher definitely lived up to the character’s name, as he killed many gods throughout the film. As a result, many fans are already claiming that Gorr is one of the most powerful villains in the entire MCU.
Although Gorr’s tenure in the MCU is over, as he met his tragic end at the end of the film, the number of overwhelmingly powerful adversaries Gorr has defeated and fought against raises questions about the others. MCU characters that Gorr the God Butcher could defeat.
There’s no doubt that the Hulk is one of the most physically strong characters in all of Marvel, and while Gorr the Butcher God isn’t generally known for his immense physical abilities, he would still be able to defeat the rabid beast.
In Thor: Love and Thunder, Gorr’s weapon, the All-Black the Necrosword, allows Gorr to vanish and travel through shadows, hold opponents back and summon entire armies. When this is weighed against the one-dimensional nature of the Hulk’s abilities, it’s very clear that Gorr will definitely prevail in a showdown between him and the Hulk.
Tony Stark has shown using his incredible intelligence, ingenuity, and determination that it doesn’t take powers to become an effective superhero, as he has become one of the most iconic and powerful members of the Avengers.
However, Iron Man can use all the nanotech and repulsive blasts at his disposal, but he would be overwhelmed by Gorr’s divine power, as the God Butcher has already defeated many opponents such as Thor and Valkyrie who are much stronger than Man. of iron.
Ikaris’ Superman abilities ranging from flight, super strength, and eye beams make the Eternal one of the most powerful MCU characters and would make a fight between him and Gorr an MCU match for the ages.
While Ikaris is shown to have the power to fight several of the other Eternals at once, Gorr’s ability to summon legions of shadow monsters would be enough to keep Ikaris busy while the God Butcher lands a decisive blow. .
Ego introduced fans to the power of Celestials in Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2, and it did not disappoint. It turned out that he was almost indestructible, had the ability to create matter, and almost managed to absorb all life in the universe.
Despite his immense power as a Celestial, Ego is vulnerable, and if he gets too busy in a one-on-one clash with Gorr, there’s a good chance Gorr could use the All-Black to conjure something. to destroy Ego’s core while he is distracted. trying to fend off Gorr’s lightning attacks.
Hela truly lived up to her character’s reputation as the goddess of death in Thor: Ragnarok as she effortlessly devastated the entire army of Asgard and took over the realm within hours. While her power set isn’t really well explained to the public, Hela is just as strong if not stronger than Thor, but would still be narrowly outmatched by Gorr the Butcher God.
In Thor: Love and ThunderThor has shown that with full mastery of his power and Zeus’ thunderbolt, he still isn’t enough to take down Gorr, and since killing gods is his specialty, he should be able to beat Hela if things go wrong. spoiled.
There’s no doubt that Peter Parker is one of the most lovable and relatable MCU heroes, and while a clash between him and Gorr is highly unlikely as Spider-Man is well below Gorr’s radar, a fight between the two would be a two-sided contest.
The courage and bravery he constantly displays takes Peter Parker a long way, but as a mortal there’s not much he can do against a godslayer. Spider-Man’s escape may make the fight last longer than it should, but it’s only a matter of time before Gorr lands a blow.
Loki’s cunning and wide range of abilities have allowed him to be one of the MCU’s most enduring characters, but as a god of mischief, Loki is exactly the kind of character Gorr the Butcher God specializes in. in defeat.
Gorr can match Loki’s ability to cast illusions by using the Necrosword to escape any surprise Loki might throw at him. Gorr has slain countless gods, and Loki would be just another victim of Gorr’s crusade to “slay” all the gods.
Shang-Chi may not be one of the gods Gorr is used to fighting against, but the mystical power of the Ten Rings along with his incredible fighting skills make him a mighty hero capable of facing opponents who may initially seem much more powerful.
While he definitely has the skills to take on any opponent, Shang-Chi lacks the physical strength to take on the All-Black-wielding Gorr, as he has divine strength and durability. Since it would only take one punch or a slice for Gorr to defeat Shang-Chi, Gorr would defeat him with relative ease.
Captain Marvel’s Tesseract-powered photon abilities make her a very formidable adversary whose strength and durability are off the charts, and she even sometimes comes across as being too powerful for the story to pose a real threat.
Despite her level of cosmic power, Carol Danvers doesn’t have too much combat experience against other extraordinarily powerful beings such as Gorr the Butcher God, and her thousands of years of combat experience as well as the power of his Necrosword to pierce virtually anything gives him an edge over Captain Marvel.
A debate that was forming among MCU fans long before the release of Thor: Love and Thunder was how Gorr would fare in a fight with the MCU’s most notorious big bad Thanos if Infinity Stones weren’t involved, and after Gorr’s display of immense power in the movie, it’s safe to say that Gorr would defeat the Mad Titan.
Gorr defended himself against a full-powered Thor, with Jane Foster wielding Mjolnir and Valkyrie with Zeus’ thunderbolt at the same time, and since only Thor was able to mortally wound Thanos (who possessed all six Infinity Stones), the comparison between the Mad Titan and the God Butcher leans in favor of Gorr.
