The holidays are coming, and this year you've got the power to make the season extra bright by gifting that special someone the perfect present. But with great power comes great responsibility, and finding the right gift for everyone can be quite the challenge. CBS Essentials has assembled a list of great gift ideas for the Marvel fans in your life, so you can smash the rest of your holiday shopping. (See what we did there?)

From subtler stocking stuffer ideas (such as a Captain America pizza cutter or a bottle opener inspired by Thor's hammer) to more obvious collectibles (like the Marvel Infinity Gauntlet Lego set) there's a gift out there to make your recipient say, "I still believe in heroes." In other words, we're talking about you -- you would be the hero in this scenario.

With shipping delays looming over the holiday season in parts of the country, some of these gifts may not arrive in time for Christmas. If you're looking to get something Marvel-related under the tree on time, a gift card to a popular retailer on this list, such as Amazon, is an easy way to save the day.

Be sure to check out CBS Essentials' other gift guides to shop for everyone from Disney lovers to Squishmallows fiends. Meantime, here are 10 super great gift ideas for Marvel fans this holiday season.

"I was super excited to use my new bottle opener but was severely disappointed when I couldn't pick it up. It literally was sitting on my front porch for 8 days, I just couldn't pick it up off the floor. I don't get why a bottle opener would be so heavy..."
