It’ll be a long time before a movie as huge as Avengers: Endgame comes along again. It was no wonder that it ended up taking the crown from Avatar to become the highest grossing movie of all time with a haul of over $2.7 billion at the worldwide box office.
Endgame was the big finale of the Infinity Saga, the 22-part movie mayhem that Marvel has been unleashing on the moviegoing public since 2008. It was the literal “endgame” for some of our favorite characters, who are now immortalized as Funko Pops. So, here are The 10 Best Funko Pops! From Avengers: Endgame, Ranked.
10 Funko Pop! Marvel: Avengers Endgame – Iron Man, Multicolor
As the culmination of the Infinity Saga that began over a decade ago with Tony Stark proclaiming to the world that he is Iron Man, it was only fitting that Stark saved the day in Avengers: Endgame, and using that same line.
It was revealed recently that the Avengers’ Quantum Realm suits, like the one Tony is wearing in this Funko Pop figure, were entirely made of CGI, because of the strict shooting schedule. There wasn’t enough time for the production team to wait for the design team to finish conceptualizing the suits, so the actors just wore green spandex and the now-iconic look was added in post.
9 Funko Pop! Marvel: Avengers Endgame – 6” Hulk with Gauntlet
Fans were stunned when they caught up with Bruce Banner after the five-year time jump in Avengers: Endgame and saw that he’d become “Smart Hulk,” a hybrid of Bruce and the Hulk, with the brains of Bruce and the brawn of the Hulk.
He solidified his place as an all-time MCU hero when he donned the Iron Gauntlet, snapped his fingers, and brought back the trillions of lifeforms who were snapped out of existence at the end of Infinity War. If it wasn’t for the Hulk sacrificing his arm, then all of those people would never have been brought back to life.
8 Funko Pop! Marvel: Avengers Endgame – Thor, Multicolor
Thor’s character arc came to a head in Avengers: Endgame in both the most surprising and the most fitting way. This is a guy who lost everything – his family, his friends, his home – and then a villain he couldn’t just beat up came along and slaughtered his people, his best pal, and his brother right in front of him.
At the end of Infinity War, Thor made one fatal mistake that allowed Thanos to win, so naturally, by Endgame, he’s feeling pretty defeated. He’s drinking, he’s kicking back, and he’s given up on heroism. But by the end of the movie, he gets his groove back.
7 Funko Pop! Marvel: Avengers Endgame – Rescue
One of the many fun surprises in Avengers: Endgame was that we finally got to see Pepper Potts don the Rescue armor and fight alongside Tony Stark. Or, at least, it would’ve been a fun surprise if Gwyneth Paltrow hadn’t already spoiled it in a social media post from months before. Some fans expected her to fly out and find Tony after he became stranded in space aboard the Benatar following the events of Infinity War, but it was actually Captain Marvel who got that distinction.
Pepper finally made her name as a superhero in Endgame, and here she is in her suit of armor.
6 Funko Pop! Marvel: Avengers Endgame – Hawkeye
Clint Barton’s character arc took a dark turn when Thanos’ finger-snap wiped his family off the face of the Earth, and it’s understandable – the guy lost everything. He took on the “Ronin” mantle and started traveling the world, seeking out anyone who he felt deserved to die more than his wife and kids did (drug traffickers, triad gangsters etc.), and killing them.
He’ll have a grim couple of years to move on from when he starts training up his protégé Kate Bishop to become Hawkeye in his belated standalone adventure in his own Disney+ series when the streaming service launches.
5 Funko Pop! Marvel: Avengers Endgame – Hulk
In Avengers: Endgame, it was determined once and for all which of the Science Bros. was the smartest. Both Tony Stark and Bruce Banner are scientific geniuses, but Tony just about beats Bruce. Bruce almost figured out how to perfect the art of time travel, but Tony actually figured it out.
To come as close as Bruce did to figuring out time travel is still very impressive – even if he did bring back Scott Lang as a baby, a little kid, and an old man before bringing him back at his own age. In this Funko Pop, the Hulk is seen in his Quantum Realm suit.
4 Funko Pop! Marvel: Avengers Endgame – Nebula
Nebula finally got the large role she’s always deserved this year in Avengers: Endgame. Where Gamora got a chance to shine in Infinity War as Thanos’ favorite child and the only person who knew the whereabouts of the Soul Stone, Nebula got a chance to shine in Endgame as the one who knew about Thanos’ retirement plan and then tapped into her past self’s network to unwittingly appraise Thanos of the Avengers’ plan. Karen Gillan has always played the character brilliantly.
After years of facing Thanos’ abuse and constantly changing allegiances, Nebula has developed into one of the MCU’s most complex characters.
3 Funko Pop! Marvel: Avengers Endgame – Black Widow
Some fans felt that Avengers: Endgame failed Black Widow, because her death scene wasn’t very triumphant and her passing was quickly forgotten about when Tony Stark died (where was Natasha’s funeral?). However, those are problems with the script, not with the character. If anything, Marvel Studios underestimated just how much fans love the Black Widow character.
She’s often been delegated to sidekick roles or damsel-in-distress subplots, but that doesn’t take away from the fact that she’s a badass super-spy who can kick her way out of any situation. In Endgame, she was truly willing to do “whatever it takes” to save everybody – and she did.
2 Funko Pop! Marvel: Avengers Endgame – Thanos
Every critic who ever said that the MCU has a “villain problem” was quickly silenced when Thanos first arrived on the Asgardians’ ship and killed Heimdall, Loki, and the Hulk (although the latter was immediately resurrected). Some fans said that the Mad Titan wasn’t as nuanced or well-written in Endgame as he was in Infinity War, but Infinity War simply gave him more of the spotlight.
And the Thanos of Endgame is from 2014; he doesn’t have the baggage of having killed his daughter for a stone. He’s also stronger, smarter, and more virile, which makes him an even more formidable threat. In this Funko Pop, he has his awesome double-edged blade in one hand and the Infinity Gauntlet on the other.
1 Funko Pop! Marvel: Avengers Endgame – Captain America, Multicolor
Avengers: Endgame brought us plenty of Captain America’s greatest moments in the MCU. He fought himself in the past, he commented on having “America’s ass,” he summoned Mjolnir and proved his worthiness, and the movie’s final scene provided a touching send-off for Steve Rogers. Arguably the greatest moment is on the battleground when Thanos’ armies are massing and Cap realizes he’s hopelessly outgunned.
Instead of running away or surrendering, he just tightens the strap on what’s left of his shield and gets ready to fight. That’s Cap in a nutshell. In many ways, Endgame was Tony Stark’s movie, but it was also Steve Rogers’ movie.
