The MCU is actually very weak compared to their comic book counterparts, and was wondering if it will get a power up? Fox is actually closer to the comics then the MCU, since their characters are actually extremely strong

No, they won't. It's live action and many different writers/directors have explained in the past that this is the reason they generally make the characters more grounded to reality than their comicbook versions.

Not likely,the acting will get dumb and the CGI won't be able to keep up

Apart from maybe Magneto and quicksilver, I can’t recall any other fox mutant that’s close to their 616 counterparts in terms of power/feats.

No, that'd be very dumb.

I remember the days when Thor's only feat was lifting a car. Now the filmmakers are explicitly trying to give him star level feats. I honestly think it's possible for things to change.

Does it really matter? It's not like the quality of the movies is going to be affected anyway.

No, it wouldn’t translate and would mostly look stupid and the characters would rarely ever feel in actual danger.

I doubt it. The main problem is that suspension of disbelief is much higher in comics

No because they don't want to. Comics dgaf about realism at all while the MCU and even the DCEU do. Live action characters will always be weaker, just the way it's gonna be. Not a problem either.

I guess its possible. They can mostly likely do a good CGI of a planet being busted by Hulk or Thor. I would love to see World Breaker Hulk in the MCU.

No way there going to show planet busting characters in movies. The CGI would be too expensive.

Apart from maybe Magneto and quicksilver, I can’t recall any other fox mutant that’s close to their 616 counterparts in terms of power/feats.

Magneto, Quicksilver, Captain America, Winter Soldier, Black Widow, Spiderman(MCU), Lizard, Venom (New one) and possibly Captain Marvel.

Captain marvel sounds like she will be stronger than her comic counter part

If they really were to plan to do this i would expect all street levelers.

Just like CW made Arrow even more powerful than comic GA or MCU Starlord temporarily was above comic one via demicelestial physiology

MCU Spider-Man is nowhere near as good or powerful as 616 spider-man, that's just objectively false. Sony venom leaves a lot to be desired compared to his 616 counterpart, same goes for lizard since 616 lizard could blitz his movie counterpart
