Weapon And Combat Details Fans Noticed About Women In The MCU

List Rules
Vote up the details that hit the mark.

From heroes like Captain Marvel to villains like Hela, the women of the Marvel Cinematic Universe are powerful, savvy, and cunning. Just like their male counterparts, these characters are loaded with amazing small details, including those related to their weapons and combat. Many of them are hard to spot, but thankfully fans online have done the pinpointing for us. For example, in Captain America: Civil War, when Wanda Maximoff squares up against Vision, she actually uses his power to manipulate his density (which he uses to fly), forcing him to the ground. Have you ever wondered how Mantis' powers might come in handy in a fight? If you look closely in the background of Avengers: Endgame, you can see her putting a large enemy to sleep using her psychic abilities. Even the heroes who don't wear capes have some great moments. In Captain America: The First Avenger, when Steve Rogers jumps on a grenade to save the unit, Peggy Carter is one step behind him ready to do the same.

Check out this list of weapon and combat details about the women of the MCU, and don't forget to vote up your favorites!
