The Funniest Times MCU Characters Meet Each Other For The First Time

List Rules
Vote up the MCU's funniest intros.

Since the Marvel Cinematic Universe officially began with 2008's Iron Man, Marvel has brought countless beloved superheroes to the big screen, creating a roster of incredibly talented actors that's completely unparalleled in any other film series. As the movies and storylines became more intricate, characters began to cross over into each other's films, leading up to 2018's Infinity War, which saw the culmination of every single entry up to that point.

Nobody prepared us for how satisfying it would be to watch all these characters and stories interconnect, but it also led to some of Marvel's most hilarious on-screen interactions. These are the funniest times MCU characters met each other for the first time.

    Steve Meets Groot On The Battlefield ('Avengers: Infinity War')

    Steve Rogers and Groot may be the most unlikely duo to ever cross paths - but also the most hilarious. During Infinity War, Thor enters the Battle of Wakanda with his two new allies, Rocket and Groot. Thor introduces them to his old pal Captain America on the battlefield, where Groot (or "Tree") utters the only dialogue he ever speaks, "I Am Groot."

    Rogers, being the most serious, no-nonsense Avenger, responds, "I am Steve Rogers," making for a genuinely priceless moment.

  • When Spider-Man and Doctor Strange finally cross paths, it just happens to be on an alien spaceship headed into the unknown; then again, it isn't even the weirdest circumstances for two Brooklyn superheroes to meet.

    Peter Parker finds himself tucked away on an alien spacecraft after watching it invade New York, where he finds Tony Stark and Strange coincidentally hiding, as well. Never having met the powerful sorcerer before, Spider-Man introduces himself as Peter Parker, only to mistake "Doctor Strange" (his legitimate title) for a superhero name.

    The Guardians Bring Thor Aboard Their Ship ('Avengers: Infinity War')

    Thor winding up aboard the Guardians' ship shouldn't be as funny as it is, but lo and behold, it's extremely satisfying.

    The Asgardian landing on their windshield was the worst possible thing that could have happened to Star-Lord's ego, but the best possible thing for audiences, as it leads to some hilarious moments between the two "macho" men - the most amusing of it all being Drax referring to Thor as a handsome man and favorably comparing him to Quill's less-muscular body.

  • Up until Doctor Strange, Loki thought he was the one and only God of Mischief. It turns out, Loki isn't the only superhero capable of tomfoolery. In Thor: Ragnarok, Thor and Loki pay a visit to the sorcerer Dr. Stephen Strange, only for Strange to send Loki falling through a void for almost half an hour. For a guy who took on all of the Avengers and almost won, Loki is very quickly incapacitated by Dr. Strange, meaning either Dr. Strange is very powerful or Loki is losing his edge.

    Just for good measure, Dr. Strange keeps moving Thor in and around the Sanctum Sanctorum, too - not for any real purpose, but just because it's fun to manipulate time and space and completely fluster an all-powerful god.
