Power of the verse

The MCU is an incredibly formidable movieverse, currently ranging anywhere from Human to Universe+.

While the Avengers are not yet nearly as strong as their comic book counterparts, they are still pretty powerful. Characters such as Thor, Hulk, Vision, Doctor Strange, and Scarlet Witch are at the very least in the City level, and Iron Man is capable of hypersonic flight. In addition, the producers have stated that Scarlet Witch has only scratched the bare surface of her powers and will upgrade to become far more powerful in the future. Thor has massively hypersonic flight speed with his hammer Mjolnir. S.H.I.E.L.D. has access to nukes capable of destroying the whole of New York City, the Asgardians can use the Bifrost to raze an entire planet (it takes time, but still), space travelling races, portal tech.

A sorcerer such as the Ancient One or Kaecilius is able to boost their power in the Mirror Dimension to at least City Level, while Kaecilius' boss Dormammu is an extra dimensional being who is effortlessly able to conquer planets and far greater, earning him a spot in Planet Level at the very least, and Universe Level+ at his full power, making him by far the most powerful character in the series so far.

The Infinity Stones are the most powerful objects in the verse, the Power Stone contained in the Orb able to enhance its user's power to destroy all organic life on a planet. The other Infinity Stones are used as the core of relics of great power that harness their energy: The Tesseract, which is built around the Space Stone is capable of city-busting with a teleportation effect that gives the appearance of disintegrating whatever it hits. The Aether, with the Reality Stone as its core, can enhance the power of its wielder to Thor's level and is capable of rewriting a universe during the Convergence. The Mind Stone grants its wielder power over the minds of other beings and can grant sentience to artificial intelligences.  The Time Stone can reverse and accelerate time, as well as create time loops which not even Dormammu can break.

Note: Take caution when scaling characters from the movies to the ones from the TV shows and vice-versa as the movies barely acknowledge the TV shows themselves.

Magic in the Verse

There is magic in the MCU, it deals with extra dimensional energy and quantum mechanics. All of Asgard is powered by the magical Odinforce. The Sorcerer Supreme's job is to train countless students in learning magic and defending Earth from mystical threats such as Dormammu.
