    Default which Marvel hero would actually be seen as villainious in reality?

    Hulk: on the property damage alone.

    Captain America on the account that most people from his time period were really racist, sexist etc. Merely dumping a person from that time period to this would take a lot of adjustment on their part.

    How about Reed Richards? Look at all the problems he has brought to the Marvel Universe with his science experiments and other crap.
    Favorite teams. Alpha Flight, Avengers, Fantastic Four, West Coast Avengers, Justice Society of America, Legion of Superheroes.

    Pull List - Lois Lane, Amazing Mary Jane, Black Cat, Doctor Doom, Gwen Stacy, Jane Foster Valkyrie, Morbius Savage Avengers, Strike Force, Something Is Killing The Children

    Iron Man and Captain Marvel - Civil War 1 & 2. In reality they would be villains

    Jean Grey, Xavier and Emma as telepaths would also be seen as villains

    I’ve always been stupidly intrigued by Dr Strange. He’s the sorceror supreme...the most powerful magician/beings in several realms/dimensions. From an outside POV, surely he is a big threat?

    *sigh* This again. I’m so tired. The “all people from the 40’s had to have been racist” argument falls apart when you consider the fact that two of the reigning kings of using fiction/pop culture to fight for equality, re: Gene Roddenberry (creator of Star Trek) and Jack Kirby (co-creator of Cap, the original X-Men, and Black Panther) were both from the 40’s. In fact what do these two men have in common other than the themes in their body of work? They both served in WW2.

    BTW Mr. (Fred) Rogers was also “from the 40’s”. Just saying.

    Moreover Cap was not created to be an accurate portrayal of life in the 40’s. Simon and Kirby based him on the Golem of Prague mythology. The A on Cap’s helmet? In Hebrew it is the letter א, which represents “truth”. In the golem of Prague mythology that activated the golem. Steve’s origin is also reminiscent of the golem of Prague story. The golem was molded from raw material (a young, frail Steve Rogers) but through magic (the super soldier serum) became a strong and formidable defender of the Jewish community. The golem had a star on his chest, just like Cap does. There are other parallels as well. Thus Steve was never meant to be this modern day representative of the Greatest Generation, that was never his creators’ intent. He was always meant to be a champion brought to life for the explicit reason of defending the marginalized.

    Probably most of them. Heck, in universe most of the major heroes have been seen threats at one time or another.

    I have never seen any evidence of Captain America being any of these things. He had Falcon as his partner. Has worked well with several female heroes early on, such and The Wasp, and Scarlet Witch. He has always spoken about truth and justice and the American ideal that all men are created equal. Just because you are from the 40's doesnt make you a bigot.

    What about Punisher, Wolverine and Deadpool? A body count would be a good way to qualify yeah?

    Agreed. My grandparents were born in the 20s and were not racist.

    When I stop and think about it there are many heroes that while not villains are so different that the public would distrust them a great deal and so they may be seen as more villainous then they really are.

    Mutants would fall under this category.

    I would think most aliens would as well. It amazes me how accepting people are to out of world visitors.

    I would think robots, androids, and Ai heroes as well. Like Vision. I mean he tried to take over the computers of the world. That would make me not trust him.

    Definitely, Vision is the son of Ultron after all.

    I agree that anyone who kills would be seen as a villain, Punisher would be infamous as a serial killer, not heroically famous as an enforcer who wipes out gangs.
