    Here Are, In My Humble Opinion, The 16 Best Superhero Movie Moments Ever

    Truly "Marvel-ous" scenes, if you will.

    16. The first fight scene in Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2.

    Baby Groot stands in front of two mini speakers while an alien monster rages in the background.

    The first fight scene in Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2 is a ~vibe.~ You have the utter chaos of the fight scene and then adorable, little baby Groot dancing away to an absolute BOP. ("Mr. Blue Sky" by Electric Lights Orchestra, in case you're wondering). This has to be the best opening scene of any Marvel movie.

    15. The reveal of Steve being unfrozen in the modern world in Captain America: The First Avenger.

    Nick Fury, after finding Steve Rogers in the middle of Times Square, says, "You've been asleep, Cap. For almost 70 years. You gonna be okay?" And Steve replies, "Yeah...yeah. I just...I had a date."

    Well, if Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2 had the best opening, Captain America: The First Avenger has the best ending. Steve wakes up in an unknown, 1940s-style room; he's confused and the audience is confused. After he runs out into Times Square only to be told by Nick Fury that it's been 70 years since he went down into the ice, he says the iconic line, "I had a date." This scene is just *chef's kiss.*

    14. Aquaman emerging with his iconic costume in Aquaman.

    This scene was AMAZING. After the drama of (spoiler alert) Arthur finding out his mother is still alive, he enters into a waterfall and emerges as Aquaman, complete with the costume we all know and love. Between the trident and the iconic comic costume, it's definitely a scene where you want to be in a theater to experience it.

    13. Any fight scene between Steve and Bucky in Captain America: The Winter Soldier.

    Captain America holds up his shield to block a punch from the metal arm of the Winter Solider.

    As you can probably tell by this point, I'm a big fan of Cap. I really tried to pick one fight scene from The Winter Soldier, but as you can see, I could not. Every fight scene in this movie was choreographed to perfection.

    12. Miles jumping off the building in Spider-Man: Into the Spider-Verse.

    I, like everyone else who has seen this movie, got CHILLS during this scene. This was the moment when the audience realizes that Miles is rising and he's confident in his abilities. This one moment will show anyone watching that they're watching the making of a true superhero.

    11. Thor, Hulk, Valkyrie, and Loki fighting Hela in Thor: Ragnarok.

    Thor, Valkyrie, and Loki stands in a line while holding various sword weapons. And the Hulk roars fiercely so the veins in his neck pop out.

    Thor: Ragnarok is the BEST Thor movie and this fight scene proves it. Ragnarok proved the Thor movies could be serious and hilarious. Plus, Marvel finally cast a good villain in Hela. This has to be the most flawless scene in the Thor trilogy. I could go on and on here, but you don't have all day.

    10. The Power Stone sequence in Guardians of the Galaxy.

    Groot, Gamora, Star-Lord, Drax, and Rocket all hold hands to disperse the energy of the powerful Power Stone.

    This scene is so, so good! It is a spectacular ending for Guardians. This scene truly shows how much the characters evolved from being self-centered and egotistical to holding hands and sharing the brunt of the Power Stone. I guess team work truly does makes the dream work!

    9. The airport fight scene in Captain America: Civil War.

    Captain America's team faces off against Iron Man's team in a deserted airport landing strip.

    This scene makes my little nerd heart flutter! There are just so many spectacular heroes here. The stunts are breathtaking and this scene changes everything for the Avengers. Also, I love the official introduction of Black Panther and Spider-Man here. 10/10, definitely recommend.

    8. The astral projection battle in Doctor Strange.

    Doctor Strange fights Kaecilius as they are both phrasing, floating presences in the physical world.

    Doctor Strange is not talked about enough! Especially when it comes to the astral projection duel scene. It was such a unique sequence that really explored the possibilities of the MCU. This first movie and my girl, Wanda Maximoff, have me PUMPED for the sequel.

    7. Ant-Man entering in the Quantum Realm in Ant-Man and the Wasp.

    Ant-Man, in a miniature size, looks around at the green tinted world of the Quantum Realm.

    I love both Ant-Man movies; they're the perfect combination of comedy and drama. The visual effects are always on point and the Quantum Realm scene is no exception. You can feel Scott's hopelessness and realize how complex the realm is at the same time. This is one of the most breathtaking scenes in the MCU.

    6. Black Widow vs. Hammer Security in Iron Man 2.

    Natasha Romanoff sprays mace into the face of a bad guy who was trying to grab her.

    Admittedly, I am not a big fan of the Iron Man movies, but do I love seeing Black Widow's first fight scene? Yes, yes I do. This scene first showed the audience what Nat was capable of. We stan this incredible introduction to her character's potential.

    5. Vision's death in Avengers: Infinity War.

    Wanda Maximoff stands with her arm outstretched and magic flowing out of her hand into the Infinity Stone located in Vision's forehead.

    This scene is insanely sad, but that doesn't make it a bad scene. (I quietly remind myself). The acting here is phenomenal. The audience can feel Wanda's hesitancy and the mounting tension. We know things are changing big time, yet again, in the world of the Avengers.

    4. Jack Jack and Syndrome's battle in The Incredibles.

    Jack Jack, in the form of a red skinned mini monster, grabs the face of Syndrome as they fly through the air.
    Pixar / Disney

    This might quite possibly be the best scene in the entire Pixar catalog. This scene made me laugh the first time I watched it and every time since. Jack Jack's powers, need I say more?

    3. Wanda's grief explosion in Avengers: Age of Ultron.

    Wanda Maximoff falls to her knees as an explosion of red energy destroys the robot army around her.

    This was the second ever Marvel scene to give me full-on CHILLS. You can feel Wanda's grief through the screen and watching her power just explode, destroying everything around her? Incredible. This scene was beautiful and heart-breaking all in one.

    2. Captain Marvel's rising scene in Captain Marvel.

    Carol Danver is showed in various stages, from youth to adulthood, rising from getting knocked down from a baseball game, riding a bike, military training, and being tossed by an alien.

    Whenever I'm watching Captain Marvel, you can just find me screaming, "Yaas, queen," straight at the screen, especially during this scene. It takes the audience back to every moment when Carol had to fend for herself and it's when you realize she truly is a hero. This scene encourages everyone watching to be their own hero.

    1. And finally, No Man's Land in Wonder Woman.

    Wonder Woman walks across a gun riddled with gun fire and then she blocks a single bullet using her magic bracelets.
    Warner Bros.

    Do I get goosebumps every time I think about this scene? Yes. Do I have goosebumps writing about this scene right now? Yes. There has never been and never will be a more perfect scene than No Man's Land. This is when Diana realizes that she is WONDER WOMAN and no one can stop her. It is heart pounding, inspiring, and absolute cinematic perfection! Now, excuse me while I go watch Wonder Woman again!!
