5 Marvel Characters Who Gained Strength When They Were Adapted To The Screen



Angel is both equal and stronger in the films than he was in the comics, but that depends on which version you look at. In X-Men: The Last Stand, Ben Foster’s Angel remains faithful to his characterization in the comicbooks. In X-Men: Apocalypse, Ben Hardy’s version is stronger.


When Angel is introduced in The Last Stand we see him cage fighting the Blob. If this happened in the comicbooks he wouldn’t be able to handle the Blob in close combat, but this isn’t the comicbooks. This leads us to believe that he is physically stronger, and that’s before his Apocalypse transformation into Archangel!



Guardians of the Galaxy wasn’t expected to be the massive hit that it became, and Chris Pratt is a major reason why. His character Peter Quill, AKA Star-Lord, was able to physically hold an Infinity Stone in his bare hands without being destroyed. He can thank his father Ego, who happens to be an ancient celestial, for that.


In the comics, Quill is also half human, but his father is J’Son, King of the Spartax Empire. Since he isn’t the celestial that Ego is, Star-Lord is simply royalty and not exactly the half-celestial he is in the films.
