#ComicBytes: The most powerful magic users in Marvel Universe
Most superheroes get their power from the following sources, science experiments gone wrong, cosmic sources and magical or mystical arts.
While those deriving power from the first two, need to learn to control their power, the magic users must undergo rigorous training in order to hone their skills before they can unleash their true potential.
Here are Marvel's five most powerful magic users.
In the mood for mischief
The God of mischief Loki, from Asgard, is a skilled practitioner of magic.
He is capable of shape-shifting through magic, besides possessing other magical psychic abilities like shooting concussive blasts, creating force-fields, reading thoughts and bringing inanimate objects to life.
Loki can also temporarily bestow superhuman abilities, place curses and teleport across great distances.
He is considered powerful enough to decimate an entire planet.
The troubles of the witch
Scarlet Witch or Wanda Maximoff is considered one of the strongest mutants but her powers are mostly magical.
She is said to use something called chaos magic, warping reality according to her whim and altering history.
Wanda can shoot hex bolts, distorting reality and causing bad luck besides teleporting and controlling alchemical elements.
Notably, she uses telekinesis through magic, manipulating objects at molecular levels.
Bow to the Goddess of death
Hela is the Goddess of death from Asgard and is capable of deadly magic.
Among her powers are astral projections, creating illusions, travelling through time and shooting energy blasts from her hands, which can kill immortals.
However, her strongest magic gives her control over life and death, meaning she can draw someone's spirit's energy into her body and kill beings with a single touch.
The wielder of the gauntlet
Adam Warlock will forever be famous in Marvel for wielding the Infinity Gauntlet.
However, he also has access to extremely powerful quantum magic.
His power allows him to perform God-like acts, like manipulating souls and time, creating illusions, healing others and himself, teleporting, creating lightning, moving objects with his mind.
He can also shoot energy bolts and transmute elements and matter, thus materializing anything.
Stranger than the rest, stronger than the best
A master of the mystical arts, Doctor Strange became immortal after his contest with Death.
He is capable of shooting mystic bolts, reading minds, conjuring things out of thin air, banishing creatures to different dimensions, transmuting things, moving objects with his mind, hypnotizing people, creating protective shields, and manipulating time.
His array of powers and spells make him the unrivalled supreme magician in Marvel.
