5 MCU superheroes who would make great roommates (& 5 who would be the worst)
At first glance, all of the superheroes in the Marvel Cinematic Universe seem like so much fun to experience. Between Spider-Man’s love for the old movies and Iron Man throwing wild parties, the MCU is also full of dreamy roommates. However, that doesn’t mean they would all be good to live with.
Scott Lang may seem like just playing the drums, but his roommate would have to deal with the copious amounts of ants around the house. And Captain America is a sane guy, but there would be animosity in the apartment as soon as his roommate used foul language. So if fans really had to think about it, which MCU hero wouldn’t they mind living the most?
ten Awesome: he hawk
Hawkeye has had some hard-hitting fight scenes in the MCU, but realistically he’s the closest to the franchise with a normal guy. His costume doesn’t give him any special abilities and he’s just good at pointing and shooting arrows. But because of that, he would be a great roommate, as he has the least amount of baggage and there isn’t a lot of drama around him. No alien is chasing him, and he doesn’t have so many sworn enemies.
Not only that, but Hawkeye also has a lovely country house. All he needs to worry about is whether he has chopped enough wood. Sure, life wouldn’t be very exciting for her roommate, but it would be a safe and healthy life.
9 Worse: Wanda
Considering that if Wanda had a roommate, they would live for decades and live a sitcom-like lifestyle, it could be quite fun (on purpose, of course). WandaVision spun through The Brady Group and Modern family-based on episodes and each of them felt like a great world to live in. Wanda was also exceptionally fun, which made her a great candidate for a roommate.
However, there are certainly concerns about living with Wanda as well. With the Scarlet Witch now discovering the true extent of her powers and also exploring the Darkhold, who knows what would happen everywhere.
8 Awesome: Spider-Man
Maybe that’s because he’s barely an adult, but Peter Parker wants to have fun more than any other Avenger. Everyone wants to be their “dude in the chair,” but more than anything, Spidey and her roommate would be spending so much quality time together.
Most of their time living together consisted of putting together LEGO sets, as he did in Back home, and watch old movies, like Extraterrestrial and The Empire Strikes Back. The only downside to living with Spider-Man is that his roommate would have to listen to him endlessly talking about MJ.
7 Worse: Ant-Man
On paper, it sounds good to live with Scott Lang. When he’s not fighting Iron Man or Thanos, he’s a big kid, who stays home practicing magic tricks and playing drums. And best of all, Ant-Man has an unrealistic big house, especially since it’s located in San Francisco, where the housing market is outrageous.
Ant-Man is a normal guy and it would be nice to hang out with him on a daily basis. But in the end, none of that would be worth all the ants to crawl. Not only are there armies of tiny ants roaming the house, there’s even a giant dog-like ant in The ant Man acting as a pet on San Francisco property.
6 Awesome: the black panther
One of the hallmarks of the Marvel Cinematic Universe is that many superheroes are everyday guys who just want to relax, listen to music, and have a good time. But King T’Challa is a refreshing change from the norm. Black Panther probably doesn’t care about LEGO drum sets and kits, but he would make a great mentor for any roommate lucky enough to live in Wakanda.
Roommates could learn about African culture and traditions and help with all Vibranium weapons and vehicles. Since T’Challa is also very kind and respectful, it is likely that he and his roommate would barely face each other or argue. He would easily be one of the best roommates to have.
5 Worse: Captain America
Steve Rogers is a great guy. He is patriotic, caring, and he will always do what he thinks is right, but even more than Doctor Strange, his roommate should be careful how they would deal with him.
There are plenty of times Captain America has been the smartest person in the room, and it would make a lot of sense to go to bed early and the rent would find ways to help a person save money. But that’s not enough for a roommate, especially when they would definitely be forced to put money in a swear pot. He’s also too competitive, whether when he was competing to lift Thor’s hammer in Avengers: Age of Ultron or always fight with Tony to be the dominant male. It’s just too much, especially when you live near it.
4 Super: Monica Rambeau
While she hasn’t appeared much in the MCU, Monica certainly left a good impression on fans due to her heroic and compassionate nature. As she was also one of the best in SWORD and held the title of captain, fans learned that she was also extremely responsible and mature.
All of these traits would definitely be beneficial if anyone considered living with Monica. Not only would they have a lifelong friend who would support them no matter what, but they would also have a roommate who would likely take on their share of the rent and housework. Monica wouldn’t encroach on personal space either, which would make living with her quite pleasant.
3 Worse: Hulk
There’s no question that the Hulk is the strongest Avenger, but it comes at a price. It goes without saying that it would be almost impossible to live with Bruce Banner. There have been many different iterations of the character throughout the MCU. But whether it was him able to control it, not being able to control it, or Smart Hulk, neither of them would be fun to live with.
A banner randomly transforming into the Hulk would be problematic for a number of reasons. First, it would endanger the safety of his roommate. But it would also cause a ton of damage to the house (just like the way he destroyed Doctor Strange’s staircase in Avengers: Endgame). They would write a rental contract that they have no chance of getting back.
2 Awesome: Iron Man
Tony Stark is in every way the opposite of Steve Rogers, and that’s exactly why he would make a great roommate. All the sensitivity is thrown out the window with Iron Man, and there are parties to be had until the early hours of the morning. Her roommate would also get perks, as they would be added to exclusive events from time to time.
However, Tony’s roommate should also act like the bad guy sometimes, as Tony doesn’t know when to call him a night. But that’s a small price to pay for the billions of dollars in toys available to them.
1 Worse: Loki
Loki may not have been considered a superhero, especially in 2012, but since then he has proven to be heroic on countless occasions. At the very least, he’s an anti-hero. However, that in no way makes him a good roommate.
Sure, that would be fun for a little while, but before too long, these relentless pranks will become boring and intolerable. The god of mischief would always try to manipulate his roommate into doing the dishes, and he would never lift a finger himself.
