List RulesVote up the weird Marvel characters that you can't believe exist.

Avengers: Infinity War and Avengers: Endgame deliver a metric ton of Marvel characters, and the merger between Disney and Fox promises to dredge up even more of them. With so many new additions, it's hard to believe that there are still a litany of Marvel characters that will never get movies. 

Some of the weirdest Marvel characters like Groot, Batroc the Leaper, and Howard the Duck have already graced the Marvel Cinematic Universe, but that still leaves a long list of lesser-known Marvel characters waiting for their chance at the big time. 

There's no shortage of weird comic book characters out there, but Marvel Comics seems to have a special affinity for creating them. Perhaps it's because the modern generation of Marvel writers can't seem to stop referencing the company's bizarre history, grafting on cameos for characters like Hellcow and Doctor Bong, just for the fun of it.
