We are approaching the release of Avengers 4: Endgame. April 26th to be exact.
All of these storylines that I am about to talk about have something intrinsic to the Marvel Cinematic Universe in general and the Avengers comics canon in particular. Some of them have already been explored on screen and others only hinted at but each has appeared in one way or another. Maybe we will see some themes explored more in the forthcoming movie?
What do you think about these?Kree/Skrull War
Certainly one of the most iconic of all storylines, the Kree/Skrull War has had a tremendous effect in the Marvel Comics Universe and both alien races have now been introduced in the Cinematic U. Korvac Saga
Michael Korvac has not shown up in the movies as far as I can tell but his erstwhile lover, Carina - daughter of the Collector, has. This also marked the first meeting between the Avengers and the Guardians of the Galaxy. In the movies so far only Thor has encountered them and it appears that only Rocket Raccoon (er, I mean Rabbit?) is still around so we'll see about that.Avengers Forever
This one is a rollicking romp through time and has more twists and turns than fusilli pasta tossed with pig tails and fried onion rings. Seeing as how the Time Stone appears to have some type of importance to the plot of the movie perhaps this arc could come into play? Celestial Madonna
The Cinematic Universe version of Mantis bears slight resemblance to the comic book character and she did disintegrate after "the snap" but could it be possible that she might be the Chosen One?
Plus - Floating Heads Cover!!! Civil War
Both comics and movies have done this. Question: will there be a reconciliation among the surviving heroes or will there be acrimony?Secret Invasion
Hmmm...In the comic book reality what happened right after Civil War? In Avengers: Infinity War how many of the "heroes" who disappeared in the snap were Skrulls? Vision Quest
You might be unfamiliar with this storyline but allow me to slightly elaborate. In the John Byrne stint on West Coast Avengers, Vision was dismantled and then rebuilt - basically. They were able to reactivate him but he was definitely a changed character. I can see the same thing happening in the movie. Disassembled
There is nothing specific to tie these story arcs together other than the Avengers suffer a devastating defeat and have to rebuild from ground zero. There was also a changing of the guard
vibe which is an Avengers constant in the comics and an inevitability in the movies.Your Alternate Choice!
Yes, I know I left out 2 or 3 or more essential Avengers stories. But, why should I do all the work?
Tell me what I omitted! If ya'll don't say anything soon then I will be forced to tell you my alternate selections!
