Iryna and Olek were killed by a Stark Industries bomb, leading the twins down a dark path leading to the creation of Ultron, though they aided the Avengers when Ultron's true plan to destroy Sokovia and the world was revealed. Pietro was killed saving the life of Clint Barton, and Wanda's life continued in tragedy after her romantic partner Vision was killed by Thanos.

In grief, Wanda created a fictional reality based on the sitcoms she watched as a child, featuring a perfect life with her and Vision. In this reality, called the Hex, Wanda gave birth to twins, Billy and Tommy Maximoff (portrayed by Baylen Bielitz and Gavin Borders as young children respectively, and Julian Hilliard and Jett Klyne as slightly older children, in WandaVision). Soon, it is discovered that Billy has magical powers similar to his mother, and Tommy has superhuman speed like his uncle Pietro.

One such universe was designated as Earth-838, where real versions of Billy and Tommy (once again portrayed by Julian Hilliard and Jett Klyne) live happily with Wanda as a single mother, though they are terrified of Earth-616's Wanda when she reveals herself as the Scarlet Witch.

In Black Panther, M'Baku challenges T'Challa for control of Wakanda. When he is defeated in combat, the latter convinces him to yield. M'Baku returns the favor by looking after the wounded T'Challa following the latter's fight with N'Jadaka and agreeing to look after Ramonda. He initially declines T'Challa's request to help fight N'Jadaka, but ultimately reconsiders and leads the Jabari into battle against him. Following N'Jadaka's death, M'Baku is granted a place on Wakanda's national council.

Hank Pym / Ant-Man

Dr. Henry "Hank" Pym (portrayed by Michael Douglas) is an entomologist and quantum physicist who created the formula for the Pym Particle, a subatomic particle that changes the distance between atoms, allowing one to shrink and grow in relative size, while increasing strength. Hank Pym is the MCU's original Ant-Man, a role begun in 1963, during his tenure as a high-ranking scientist and operative at S.H.I.E.L.D.

As the Ant-Man, Hank Pym operated as a classified agent performing field missions on behalf of S.H.I.E.L.D., using a self-designed shrinking suit powered by Pym particles that also gave him the ability to communicate with different species of ants by producing electromagnetic waves that stimulate the olfactory nerve centers of the ants. During one of these classified missions in 1987, his wife Janet van Dyne was lost within the Quantum Realm and presumed dead. Following the incident, Pym resigns from S.H.I.E.L.D. in 1989, after he suspects Howard Stark of attempting to replicate the Pym particle formula. Pym retires the Ant-Man suit and founds his own technology company in San Francisco. In 2015, after Darren Cross' takeover of the company, Pym subsequently recruits Scott Lang to take on the mantle of Ant-Man, with the assistance of his estranged daughter Hope van Dyne. Together, they prevent Cross from selling the Yellowjacket technology to Hydra. In 2016, Pym inadvertently violates the Sokovia Accords because of Lang's misuse of his technology, and becomes a fugitive along with Hope from the FBI. In 2018, with help from Lang and Hope, he subsequently succeeds in rescuing Janet from the Quantum Realm. However, shortly after, Pym, along with Janet and Hope, becomes a victim of the Blip. In 2023, Pym is restored to life and attends Tony Stark's funeral with Janet, Hope, and Lang. In 2026, he, Janet, Hope, Lang, and Cassie Lang are accidentally transported to the Quantum Realm where they encounter and seemingly defeat Kang the Conqueror from escaping into the multiverse.

In an alternate universe, Pym is working at Camp Lehigh, when vials of Pym particles are stolen from him by Steve Rogers. In another alternate universe, Pym dresses in the Yellowjacket armor and murders prospective Avengers Tony Stark, Thor, Clint Barton, Bruce Banner, and Natasha Romanoff as revenge on Nick Fury for Hope's death.

In another alternate universe, Pym, still serving as Ant-Man, is recruited by Howard Stark and Peggy Carter in 1988 to join a response team to address the threat posed by Ego and his son Peter Quill.

Baron Helmut Zemo (portrayed by Daniel Brühl) is a wealthy baron of the Sokovian royal family who served as colonel of an elite Sokovian commando unit and blamed the Avengers for their role in his family's deaths during their battle with Ultron, developing a hatred towards enhanced individuals in general. In 2016, after learning of a facility holding Hydra's Winter Soldier project and the footage of Bucky Barnes murdering Tony Stark's parents, Zemo frames Barnes by bombing the signing of the Sokovia Accords in Vienna to acquire the facility's location and then lure Stark and Steve Rogers so he can have them destroy each other. Achieving his goal of effectively fracturing the Avengers, Zemo attempts to commit suicide but is stopped by T'Challa and taken into custody by the authorities. Everett K. Ross supervises his incarceration where he mocks Zemo for failing in his efforts, but Zemo indicates otherwise. In 2024, he escapes with the help of Barnes and allies with him and Sam Wilson against the Flag Smashers for his own agenda. Though later recaptured by the Dora Milaje and sent to the Raft, Zemo arranges the murder of arrested members of the inner circle through his butler to minimize the chance of their Super-Soldier enhancements being reproduced.

As of 2023, the character has appeared in the film Captain America: Civil War; as well as in the Disney+ series The Falcon and the Winter Soldier, where Zemo briefly wears his traditional purple mask from the comics, which he was not depicted with in Civil War.

Zeus

Zeus (portrayed by Russell Crowe) is the king of the Olympians, based on the Greek mythological deity of the same name. Zeus heads the Council of Godheads in Omnipotence City, but is demonstrated by Thor to be an uninterested fool obsessed with orgies when he wouldn't come up with a solution to deal with Gorr the God Butcher while claiming that the Gods that Gorr the God Butcher killed were "lesser gods". In anger, Zeus turns his lightning bolt on the group, breaking Korg's body before Thor slings the bolt back through Zeus's chest, seemingly killing him. Valkyrie takes the bolt to fight Gorr. Zeus is revealed to have survived in the mid-credits scene, sending his son Hercules to strike fear into the hearts of men again and deal with Thor.

There were some deleted scenes before the above scene was filmed that showed Zeus to be more helpful to Thor as he shows up at the hospice where Jane Foster is at, tells Thor how the Thunderbolt works, and to find the Gates of Eternity.

As of 2023, the character has appeared in the film Thor: Love and Thunder.

In 2014, his computer consciousness distracts Steve Rogers and Natasha Romanoff long enough for the camp to be wiped out by a missile barrage from Hydra.

In an alternate universe, Zola is captured by Captain Peggy Carter, who became a super-soldier instead of Steve Rogers. In another universe, a copy of Zola's consciousness is recovered by Natasha Romanoff to stop her universe's Ultron. It is hinted Zola has digital copies of his mind stored in other Hydra bases. Despite his initial failure to overwrite Ultron's A.I., Zola acquires the android's body in his second attempt and battles Killmonger for the Infinity Stones before the two are trapped in a pocket dimension by Stephen Strange Supreme and the Watcher.
