10 MCU Characters & Who Their Ideal Jedi Master Would Be

The Marvel Cinematic Universe has a plethora of superheroes who have proven their strength and valor in battle against those who would sooner see the Earth destroyed. Through their heroic endeavors, the members of the Avengers have proven to share plenty of characteristics with the honorable Jedi of the Star Wars universe.

While plenty of Avengers would make superb members of the Jedi Order, they would still require the perfect Jedi Master to properly teach them the ways of the Force. Fortunately, each of Earth's Mightiest Heroes has a Jedi Master to match their personality and learning style.


10 Hulk - Jocasta Nu

The Hulk finds his greatest assets in his physical strength and imposing stature. However, he also sports a quite contrarian side of his rageful personality in that of Dr. Bruce Banner, a brilliant scientist with an intellect far beyond that of the Hulk's, or even that of many of the other Avengers.

In order to properly hone his technique, the Hulk would require the guiding hand of another intellectual, one who could quell his rageful tendencies and bring out the conscientious Bruce Banner. Master Jocasta Nu, the temple librarian, would make the perfect Jedi to do just this, whose expansive knowledge of the galaxy and long experience as a member of the Jedi council make her well-suited for such a task.

9 Bucky Barnes - Quinlan Vos

Bucky Barnes may be an Avenger, but he dwells on the outskirts of the team. His complicated history makes him an outcast among many groups, even among Earth's Mightiest Heroes. Thereby, he often must find strength from within himself, acting as an independent operative.

Quinlan Vos, an Order 66 survivor who may yet have a future in the Star Wars franchise, would make the ideal Jedi Master for Bucky Barnes. Considered to be a "maverick" among Jedi, Master Vos rarely abides by the council's rules, choosing to work independently whenever possible. He would perfectly match Bucky's "lone wolf" tendencies while also teaching him to channel his inner darkness into positive action.

8 Black Panther - Eeth Koth

Black Panther, Eeth Koth

T'Challa is the king of Wakanda and the latest in a long line of Black Panther avatars of the goddess Bast. Loyal, brave, and unyielding, T'Challa upholds his family's legacy with pride, honing his skills as a fierce fighter who must often balance out his hot temper with thoughtful contemplation.

Eeth Koth, a former member of the Jedi council, had a similar compulsion to change rules based on new revelations, as T'Challa often did after becoming king. Both characters saw the mistakes in the actions of their predecessors and were strong enough to take action against such fallacies, creating unique and admirable legacies for themselves that would compliment one another quite nicely.

7 Doctor Strange - Saesee Tiin

Doctor Strange, Saesee Tiin

Doctor Stephen Strange is one of the most powerful sorcerers to ever live, rising to the rank of Sorcerer Supreme after only a few months of training in the mystic arts. Though he must take precautions against his own arrogance, Strange has become one of the greatest heroes on Earth.

Strange would do well with a master like Saesee Tiin. Master Tiin was a prodigy among Force-wielders who was even capable of piloting a ship using nothing but his mastery of the Force alone. Tiin could expertly mold his talented apprentice into one of the most respected and powerful Jedi in the history of the Order.

6 Spider-Man - Ahsoka Tano

Spider-Man, Ahsoka Tano

Peter Parker, also known as Spider-Man, is one of the Avengers' youngest members, who often struggles to uphold both his superhero career and his personal life at the same time. On his quest to become a full-fledged hero, Peter often makes mistakes and must learn his lessons in the heat of battle.

Though she herself never finished her Jedi training, Ahsoka Tano would make a perfect mentor for Peter Parker. Ahsoka also had to learn the ways of the Jedi from experience, as she trained during the galactic conflict known as the Clone Wars. Her enthusiasm and lust for life match Peter's in every way, and her long history of learning by experience would make her the perfect person to walk her apprentice through his long training period.

5 Thor - Mace Windu

Thor Odinson is the Norse god of thunder and a founding member of the Avengers. Over his long history as one of Earth's Mightiest Heroes, Thor has experienced his fair share of loss, which has begun to have a profound emotional impact on the Avenger, who struggles with self-doubt in the years following his initial battle with Thanos.

Mace Windu is first seen as a member of the Jedi Council during The Phantom Menace, where he is quickly displayed as a no-nonsense individual. Thor could use such a steady hand in crafting his own Jedi skill set, learning from a master who will not allow him to wallow in self-defeat but will rather bid him rise to the occasion and prove his worth.

4 Scarlet Witch - Anakin Skywalker

Scarlet Witch, Anakin Skywalker 2

The Scarlet Witch is a hot-tempered and extremely powerful former member of the Avengers who, after losing her husband and children, turned heel and betrayed her friends. Always believing her own intentions to be good, the Scarlet Witch caused the deaths of hundreds, only coming to realize the horrors of her own actions after it was already too late.

Wanda's storyline is eerily similar to that of Anakin Skywalker, one of the most powerful Jedi to ever exist. Had Wanda trained under Anakin, however, she would have found someone who truly understood her plight and would have been able to help her work through the grief. Anakin himself was always at his best when helping someone else through their own trials and might have even withheld the darkness within himself had he known the struggle of his new Padawan.

3 Vision - Yoda

Vision, Yoda

Vision is a synthezoid construct created by Ultron as the next evolution of life on Earth. However, he grew to become one of the most honorable members of the Avengers, whose pontification and postulation often brought the group's conflicts into a philosophical light.

Vision would be best served with an experienced Jedi like Master Yoda, who could keep up with his philosophical examinations. The Avenger and the Jedi share plenty of characteristics and would be able to challenge one another by intellectual means, thus stimulating a mutually beneficial relationship between the two of them.

2 Captain America - Plo Koon

Captain America, Plo Koon

Captain Steve Rogers, also known as Captain America, is considered to be the "first Avenger." A super-soldier who fought in World War II, Captain America's steadfast adherence to his principles and outgoing concern for his friends and allies make him one of the greatest heroes of all time.

Captain America could learn best under a Jedi Master as disciplined as himself. Plo Koon, a member of the Jedi High Council during the time of Order 66, would serve Steve's needs quite well. Master Koon has proven himself on multiple occasions to be a steadfast leader who is unwilling to leave his men behind. Plo Koon would also be able to teach Steve the importance of understanding when to let go of his loved ones when their fate was no longer in his hands, something which Steve struggled with as a leader in the Avengers.

1 Iron Man - Obi-Wan Kenobi

Iron Man, Obi-Wan Kenobi

Tony Stark, also known as Iron Man, is one of the founding members of the Avengers and one of the Earth's greatest heroes. Though Stark struggles with his own inner demons just as often as he does actual villains, he always comes through as a hero in the end, with his raw talent making up for his cocky demeanor.

Obi-Wan Kenobi would be the perfect Jedi to train Stark, who shares plenty of qualities with Kenobi's former Padawan, Anakin Skywalker. Obi-Wan has experience dealing with big egos and could help to balance out Stark's self-centeredness, thus bringing out the hero within. While the two might not get along on most occasions, their relationship would prove beneficial both to Stark and the galaxy as a whole.
