TV and Movies·Posted on 6 Apr 202210 MCU Deaths Ranked From "Made Me Sad" To "Made Me Sob Inconsolably"I need three business days to recover from these.by Shivani AgrawalBuzzFeed StaffFacebookPinterestTwitterMailLink 🚨🚨🚨 This post contains spoilers and graphic descriptions of some of the saddest scenes of the MCU 🚨🚨🚨 10. Dr. Ho Yinsen (Iron Man, 2008) and Dr. Abraham Erskine (Captain America: The First Avenger, 2011) Marvel Studios The deaths of Dr. Ho Yinsen and Dr. Abraham Erskine might seem inconsequential when we look at the big picture, but without these two scientists, the Marvel Cinematic Universe would not have two of its mightiest heroes. So yes, tears were shed. 9. Phil Coulson (Avengers, 2012) Marvel Studios Yes, Nick Fury faked Phil Coulson's death BUT it came out of nowhere and clearly had a HUGE psychological impact on not just the audience, but also the actual Avengers. And as if his was not enough, the blood-stained vintage Captain America cards really did me in. 8. Pietro Maximoff (Avengers: Age of Ultron, 2015) Marvel Studios It's a shame that we only got to see the very handsome Aaron Taylor-Johnson in just one movie, but Pietro's death is probably the only one that made me physically flinch. It might be one of the more grotesque Marvel deaths, with blood-covered holes littering the expanse of his body. And the consequential scene with Wanda feeling like she just lost a part of her is just a brilliant addition to it! 7. Erik Killmonger (Black Panther, 2018) Marvel Studios Killmonger is easily the greatest Marvel villain of all time. He doesn't just monologue for the sake of monologuing. He wants revenge for what was done not just to him, but to his ancestors. As he dies, he says one of the most powerful lines in the MCU yet, "Bury me in the ocean with my ancestors that jumped the ship, because they knew death was better than bondage." Erik Killmonger makes you introspect! 6. Loki (Avengers: Infinity War, 2018) Marvel Studios Loki's death in Avengers: Infinity War truly set the grim tone for the movie. We're so used to Loki playing tricks that I almost hoped that he was not dead but boy, oh, boy – Thanos did not come to play with that neck bone crunching. 5. Vision (Avengers: Infinity War, 2018) Marvel Studios Listen, I know a lot of people blame Vision for Thanos' snap, but we had to watch him die TWICE, one of which was at the hands of the love of his life. Thanos' hand going right into the flesh-not-flesh of his head was so visceral, it almost made Vision seem human for a second. But the tears were falling non-stop as soon as he turned grey and was tossed aside like a rag doll. 4. Natasha Romanoff (Avengers: Endgame, 2019) Marvel Studios Nobody saw this coming and that's what hurt the most about Natasha dying. Very much like in her life, Natasha did not go without a fight. The fact that of all people, Nat had to battle it out with her oldest and closest friend, Clint, was just extremely painful to watch. Long way from Budapest! 3. Tony Stark (Avengers: Endgame, 2019) Marvel Studios The enormity of Tony Stark dying continues to feel like a punch in the gut, even three years later. Not only was this the death of one of the most iconic symbols of pop culture, but also a metaphorical end of the Avengers as we knew them. I can still remember the gasps that echoed in the movie theatre and the hair on my arm standing as soon as Tony said the words, "...and I am Iron Man." 2. Bucky Barnes (Captain America: The First Avenger, 2011) Marvel Studios Okay this technically wasn't a death but tell me you didn't absolutely lose your whole mind as Bucky fell into the ravine – his screams echoing in the emptiness of the Alps – as Steve Rogers clung to the side of the train, helplessly crying out to his best friend on the playground and battlefield. 1. Aunt May (Spider-Man: No Way Home, 2021) Marvel Studios / Sony This wound is STILL too fresh. I mean, someone important to Peter HAD to die in this movie, but I just never thought Aunt May would end up becoming who Uncle Ben had to been to the previous Spider-Men. Both Tom Holland and Marisa Tomei acted the hell out of the scene and I was sobbing inconsolably under my 3D glasses, actual glasses, cotton mask, AND surgical mask. Do you agree with this ranking?
