There are some very bright individuals in the Marvel Cinematic Universe, such as Shuri and Tony Stark. However, for every Iron Man, there is a character that relies on something other than their brains to get things done. Most of the time, this isn’t a problem, and the less bright people get by on their charisma and/or the ability to punch someone in the face.
Though many of them are fans’ favorite characters, these fools did say or do anything in MCU’s 23 films that make them stand out from the rest of the gang. While these guys may not be utter morons who should not be left alone in a room with a fork and a wall socket, they’ve all had their highly questionable moments in the movies at some points. The list below consists of some individuals that we think fit for such a role.
#1 Drax The Destroyer
Drax the Destroyer is a Guardians of the Galaxy member who excels at hacking, slashing, and slugging. It’s true that his genuine lack of intelligence is evident in almost every situation he finds himself in.
#2 The three wombats
Luis, Dave, and Kurt are repentant criminals who nevertheless engage in some nefarious activities from time to time. They are by far the funniest character in the Ant-Man films. They have ideas, but they seldom carry them out; instead, the wombats generally just swing it.
The Bifrost Bridge was given to Skurge the Executioner. He’s more of a mercenary or a fighter than a thinker. Skurge simply wishes to appear as formidable as any Asgardian warrior.
The Ravagers have Taserface as a member. He’s haughty and arrogant, yet he’s plainly not capable of effectively leading his insurrection.
Topaz is the Grandmaster’s bodyguard and right-hand lady. She is so haughty that it blinds her, allowing our heroes to effortlessly deceive her.
Peter Quill, aka, Star-Lord was abducted from Earth when he was 8 years old. Despite making a smart battle decision, his goofiness and constant jokes make people take him less serious than they should. Maybe it’s a kind of tactic?
#7 Trevor Slattery / “Mandarin”
Trevor is a character actor who was employed by A.I.M. to play “The Mandarin.” He was then discovered to be a fumbling idiot.
#8 Red Guardian
Alexei Shostakov, also known as the Red Guardian in the past and present. In the way he is shamefully uneducated and completely unconscious of it, he exemplifies a perfect combination of parental ignorance.
#9 Roger Harrington
Mr. Harrington is a science teacher at Midtown School of Science and Technology. He’s not academically dumb, but his constant poor choices definitely made you facepalm.
Ego reared Mantis, who is an empathetic extraterrestrial. She isn’t particularly intelligent due to her lack of understanding of the universe and its inhabitants. As a result, she says and does things that appear to be illogical.
Korg is a massive rock monster from outer space with a golden heart below. He’s a freedom warrior, but he’s horrible at organizing and depends on his power and stamina to win battles.
#12 Baby Groot
Baby Groot isn’t very smart and often have a hard time following even simple instruction. Maybe because he’s still just a baby?
Despite his other half being the brilliant Dr. Bruce Banner, Hulk isn’t really a thinker. He can not even finish a proper sentence. He just does what he’s the best at: Smash!!
