In my career of creating fantasy superhero battles, never have I ever gone to such a distance to find the perfect battle between the biggest and most powerful beings in the universe.
On our side, we have Earth’s mightiest heroes in the Avengers, and on the other side, we have Earth’s Saiyan Defender Goku.
You might be wondering, can the Avengers beat Goku?
If a battle takes place between our beloved heroes from Marvel in the Avengers and the Protagonist of Dragon Ball Goku, Avengers wouldn’t be able to get the upper hand because of the vastly different level of power in both universes. Avengers would not be able to beat Goku.
It will still be an interesting battle to witness.
In this article, I’m going to talk about the Avenger’s strengths and abilities, Goku’s strengths and abilities, and both their weaknesses as well.
I’m also going to be pitting all the Avengers against Goku in different situations to find out the outcome of the battle.
So, make sure you read this article till the end.
Avenger’s Strengths and Abilities
The Avengers is a team of superheroes that have been around in the comics since the 1960s.
Led by the great Captain America and powered by the incredibly smart Tony Stark, Bruce Banner, and many others, the Avengers is an ever-growing band of superheroes that are ready to risk their lives to protect Earth and its people.
There are many Avengers in the team, and many have gone by the present, but the team is stronger than ever with tons of superheroes and amazing abilities and technology.
Let’s take a look at some of the best strengths and abilities of the Avengers and its members.
Captain America’s Leadership – Captain America is the leader of the Avengers. He always knows how to deal with any situation and can make snap decisions and strategies to fend off against the most unexpected adversaries, which are amazing for the band.
Hulk‘s Strength – Hulk is, without a doubt, one of the strongest superheroes in the Avengers team. He has the brute strength of smashing and crushing his opponents, which will surely come in very handy in this battle since the opponent is very strong as well.
Iron Man’s Tech – Iron Man is one of the most brilliant minds in the Marvel Universe. He has suits of armor for every kind of enemy and technology to keep the Earth safe from all kinds of enemy advances and the riches to back his ideas up.
Thor’s Potential – Thor has been alive for more than 1500 years, and he has immense battle experience behind him. He is capable of channeling thunder and lightning with his mighty hammer, Mjolnir, and has all the strength and potential in the world which is great for the Avengers.
Black Widow’s Skill – Although she is a human superhero, Black Widow has the martial arts skills and tactical ability better than any human in the Avengers team. She is a powerhouse and very smart when it comes to hand-to-hand combat.
Hawkeye’s Arrows – Hawkeye has an arrow for every problem in his quiver. Whether they’re alien enemies or even the biggest baddie in the universe, Hawkeye is going to use his arrows and precision to make sure the enemies are held off until the Avengers deal with them.
Goku’s Strengths and Abilities
Goku is a Saiyan who was launched into space by his parents before the death of their planet named Vegeta.
He came to Earth and was taken up by a person named Grandpa Gohan.
He raised Goku and allowed Master Roshi, a legend of martial arts to train him.
As Goku grew up, he realized his true being and faced countless foes of unbelievable power and kept growing himself in power surpassing his friends and foes and reaching new peaks of strength and abilities.
Here are some of the strengths and abilities Goku has:
Superhuman Strength – Goku is a Saiyan and this race of aliens is known to have incredible amounts of physical strength and power which can rival most of the physically strong brutes in the Marvel universe and even surpass them.
Superhuman Speed – When it comes to speed, Goku is incredibly fast but so are the other fighters in the Z universe. They’re so fast that it is impossible for a mere human to even see them when they’re fighting which shows that they’re super-duper fast and Goku is like the fastest of them especially with UI.
Ki Energy – Ki energy is the lifeblood of the Z universe. This energy is what flows within a warrior and can be used in the form of projectiles and also to charge up the power of a fighter. Goku can also sense the energy of other beings around him.
Teleportation – With the help of this Yardrat visit, Goku is now able to teleport to and from different places with his instant transmission move. He can also teleport short distances due to his fast speed.
Martial Arts Mastery – Goku has been learning martial arts from the legend Master Roshi himself so we can safely say that he is the best martial artist in the Z universe by a longshot.
Growth Potential – When it comes to growth potential, there is no known limit to Goku’s power. From Super Saiyan to Super Saiyan God Super Saiyan and now Ultra Instinct, there are many forms that he can take depending upon the requirement of a battle.
Despite having a lot of power among their units, the Avengers have at times faced a lot of challenges in the comics as well as the movies.
Let’s take a look at some of these weaknesses that the Avengers have that can be exploited by a strong and potent enemy.
Arrogance – Arrogance and pride can be the downfall of the strongest warriors. There are some members of the Avengers team who have fallen due to this reason. Iron Man, Thor, and even Bruce Banner have been victims of arrogance and caused problems for the team due to their arrogance in the past.
Hulk can be manipulated – Hulk is mentally weak. As seen in Age of Ultron, Wanda was easily able to manipulate him and cause him to go on a city-destroying rampage where he was stopped by Iron Man finally.
Humans in the team – When it comes to the team, they aren’t only superheroes and aliens. There are also humans with supernatural abilities but at the end of the day, they’re human which means that they can be outmatched if an unnatural alien force comes into play.
When it comes to power, Goku is the peak but at the same time, there are a lot of rookie mistakes that Goku makes, that end up coming to bite him back.
Let’s take a look at them.
Lack of Intelligence – Goku is always shown to be a funny, witty, yet dumb character. He is known to love eating, training, and fighting tough opponents. He isn’t known for his smarts.
Naiveness – At times, Goku is also challenged because of his naiveness. He is like a child that can be manipulated into doing the wrong things and making bad decisions.
Sympathy – Goku is a fighter that shows remorse and sympathy towards his foes. He is a Saiyan but raised with good moral values which make him soft towards his opponents.
Will to fight enemies at full power – This has been the downfall of Goku many times. He always wants to fight his opponents at their full strength and doesn’t do anything to stop them from reaching that point.
Can the Avengers Beat Goku?
To be fair, Goku and the Avengers is not a fair fight.
The power levels at which beings exist in both universes are vastly different and unmatched.
In the Avengers team, we have metahumans and aliens with a lot of fighting ability and mental strength, but in the Dragon Ball universe, Goku has so much power that any metahuman or even alien can’t stand up against him.
Sure, there are a few instances where Captain America might be able to outwit Goku and strike with a fearsome blow that might take him out, but other than that, not even Thor or Hulk can put up quite a fight against Goku.
So, I’d say, in this battle, ultimately, Goku would end up on the winning side.
Although the Avengers have taken care of a universe-level threat in Thanos, there is still very little reason through which they can overpower Goku.
He would surely be able to beat all the Avengers sooner or later.
No matter who you’re siding with, in this battle, one thing we all can agree is that we’d love to see a crossover between the Dragon Ball world and the world of Marvel Cinematic Universe, let’s hope the big companies have something like this planned for us excited fans!
