    Default Who can spook the MCU

    What demons and/or entities from horror films would be a problem for MCU Heroes

    I don't think many MCU characters have feats of dealing with intangible opponents. Strange and Scarlet Witch maybe have some chance, but what can the likes of Hulk do to one of the ghosts from 13 Ghosts?

    I would pay money to see them have to live with Beetlejuice...

    I guess Pennywise could scare the likes of Tony, Steve, Sam, Rhodes and Nat the more human guys and gals.

    It would freak him out but I see Stark killing it with a repulser blast pretty quick

    I don't see them getting spooked, so much as getting killed by some threats. After all, they've faced a planet-razing mass murderer responsible for the deaths of billions without batting an eye. This, of course, says nothing about beating something like Samara or one of the 13 ghosts (I can totally see them actually killing some of the human Avengers). But scared? No.

    Ghost Rider from Agents of SHIELD incinerated otherwise intangible ghosts so he'd be the one to go to for those types.

    Scarlet Witch isn't really supernatural but more superduper weird reality shifting TK. Can she affect the supernatural?

    A fully competent Strange would be trouble except for the highest end supernatural.

    Thor - a mixture of magic and science?

    MU, in general, has an overlap between science and magic. The highest end science types can sneer at lower level magic. Way back when Karnilla blasted Silver Surfer who wasn't even tickled. Sentry takes Morgan to task.

    How is she not supernatural?

    And even Hawkeye can affect the supernatural by shooting it full of explosive arrows.

    She gets her powers by being a mutant and not invoking spells or supernatural entities. The name doesn't mean origin of powers.

    She gets her powers from an Infinity Stone. That's way more supernatural than merely doing magic. Also, Mutants do not exist yet in her universe.

    An MCU D'Spayre would be neat.
    Check out my web novel: Graven

    Define supernatural then. The stones seem to be in the MCU science paradigm artifacts rather than a supernatural one. Granted Strange had one.

    The science paradigm and the magick paradigm in the MCU don't seem to be entirely separate.

    Regardless, science holds that a "mind" is just chemical reactions, not something a primordial Stone governs. And really, the Stones of Soul, Power, Mind, Space, Reality, and Time: what about that strikes you as even remotely scientific rather than purely supernatural?
