Advice From The Avengers That You Should Never Follow

الصفحة الرئيسية


The Avengers are real heroes, as evidenced by the numerous occasions they have risked their lives to defend the planet from extinction-level dangers. But it's not just the major things they've done that make them heroes; each member of the squad has faced their own demons and personal troubles and developed as a result. The Avengers can be viewed as paragons of the ultimate good that humanity might aim to be in a variety of ways.

However, throughout the course of twenty-odd flicks, the Avengers have made their fair share of errors. Because of their line of work, if the Avengers commit a minor misstep, it's not something that can be simply overlooked. When a typical person makes a mistake, it usually means they have to pay to replace a thing they broke; when the Avengers make a mistake, they risk annihilating existence as we know it.

While the Avengers are role models of excellence that should inspire us, they are also examples of decisions we should avoid making in our own lives. Here's some of the "advice" the Avengers have offered viewers, and why you should dismiss it.

It is OK to pick battles with your teammates.

In the 2012 film "The Avengers," Captain America is dispatched to Stuttgart, Germany to apprehend Loki. They catch the god of mischief with the assistance of Iron Man and are ready to hand him over to S.H.I.E.L.D. until Thor comes and takes Loki out of their custody to persuade him to abandon his scheme and return to Asgard. Thor's capture of Loki, on the other hand, irritates Iron Man, who wishes to keep Loki on Earth to be punished for his misdeeds. So the two of them fight it out in the bush, producing a slew of collateral devastation.

However, Cap intervenes to stop Thor and Iron Man's battle, and fans finally receive a solution to the long-standing question: "What would happen if Thor's hammer hit with Captain America's shield?"

Misunderstandings between superheroes happen all the time in comic books, frequently culminating in battles that finish with them clearing the air and joining forces against a bigger threat. Because this is the first time these characters have had a chance to engage with each other in the MCU, it's difficult to blame them for letting their egos get in the way and clashing heads a little. But, given Loki's threat to the entire planet, perhaps they should have resisted the impulse to show off who could hit harder.

  • Instead, present yourself to a possible partner with a fist and a lightning bolt to the face.

Even in the thick of battle, never cease quipping.

In "The Avengers," Black Widow and Hawkeye casually recall a previous operation in Budapest while fighting an alien army; Bruce Banner casually informs Captain America that his secret to becoming the Hulk is that he's constantly furious, then proceeds to smash a big alien robot monster in the mouth.

In "Avengers: Age of Ultron," the team gives Cap a hard time for lecturing Iron Man for his swearing while raiding a Hydra base; Hawkeye and Quicksilver swap usage of "You didn't see that coming?" while catching each other off guard mid-battle.

When Iron Man locks Cull Obsidian in the middle of nowhere via a portal in 2018's "Avengers: Infinity War," he invites Wong to his wedding; Cap and Thor take a break from the war in Wakanda to gossip about each other's new appearances.

Is there a trend emerging here? There are several additional instances in which the Avengers diverted their attention away from the work at hand (read: rescuing the world/universe/reality) to crack wise. While this is a lot of fun for us, the audience, it may be better if these men concentrated more on Thanos and less on their punchlines.

  • Instead, when people's lives are on the line, feel free to save them while keeping a straight face.

Take down the deity of mischief with physical force.

Loki is captured by S.H.I.E.L.D. and imprisoned in a cage in the Helicarrier built to house the Hulk in "The Avengers." Loki appears to be overjoyed to be hanging out in such a contraption, prompting Nick Fury and the other Avengers to believe he has something different in mind.

Their suspicions are confirmed when they are ambushed by a mind-controlled Hawkeye and Loki's other henchmen. Thor rushes to the location where Loki is being held just as he notices him breaking out from the cage and leaps at him, only to plough through a projection of Loki and land up inside the prison himself. Loki suddenly returns at the control console and locks Thor in the cage, shaking his head in disbelief at his brash adoptive brother. "Are you ever not going to fall for anything like that?"

Loki can only shake his head in bewilderment at Thor's effort to stop him with a tackle designed for quarterbacks rather than gods of mischief. Even though Loki gets his fair desserts when Agent Coulson arrives to blow him up with an experimental weapon, Thor should've been a little more cautious when attempting to stop his brother.

  • Instead, if you see Loki, it's likely that the actual one is standing immediately behind you.

Work on covert projects behind the backs of your coworkers.

In "Age of Ultron," Tony Stark and Bruce Banner return to Avengers Tower with Loki's sceptre from the previous film, which HYDRA agents were utilising for human-enhancing research. Tony believes the sceptre might be the key to resurrecting Ultron, an artificial intelligence programme meant to safeguard Earth from apocalyptic dangers. In classic mad scientist form, the two work on the software without first contacting the other Avengers, and boy, does it backfire on them.

Ultron activates and quickly kills J.A.R.V.I.S. before taking control of Tony's peacekeeping robots, the Iron Legion. He assaults the Avengers and proclaims his intention to save the Earth by annihilating the Avengers and the rest of humanity. After escaping with Loki's sceptre, he begins training to become stronger and more cunning, with the goal of annihilating Earth's people.

In movies, the smartest characters always make the stupidest blunders, and "Age of Ultron" is no exception. Given that 99.99 percent of all stories involving artificial intelligence conclude with the AI determining that humans are an impediment to something greater, it's even more baffling why these two obviously intelligent protagonists would say to themselves, "It'll work this time – I've got a good feeling about it!"

  • Instead, if you're going to play god, obtain a second, or even third, opinion from your superhero companions before flicking the switch to "ON."

It's perfectly acceptable to conceal information about who murdered your friend's parents.

Since learning that his old friend Bucky Barnes (whom he assumed was dead since WWII) had been transformed into the famed Winter Soldier, Steve Rogers has been attempting to liberate him from HYDRA's brainwashing techniques. When Baron Zemo frames Bucky for many murders in order to get revenge on the Avengers for the destruction of Sokovia, Steve becomes a fugitive in order to defend his comrade.

Tony Stark realises there's more to their narrative than he originally thought, and travels to the HYDRA base in Siberia to find more. He runs into his two pals and strikes an uneasy peace with them. Zemo then enters and gives them video of Bucky murdering Tony's parents decades before. Tony confronts Steve about it, and he acknowledges that he was aware of the reality. A terrible struggle breaks out between the three of them before he can explain that Bucky was under the control of HYDRA, and Steve and Tony's friendship is broken – at least until "Avengers: Endgame."

Steve's heart was in the right place, but if he'd been more forthright about Bucky's background from the start, he might have had a better chance of convincing Tony to assist him. Steve's dishonesty is exacerbated by the fact that he is virtually an oversized Boy Scout.

  • Instead, always inform your colleagues who the true killer of their parents was – even if the perpetrator is your closest buddy with the mechanical arm.

Keep your romantic interests to a single family.

Steve Rogers has a crush on Peggy Carter of the Strategic Scientific Reserve in 2011's "Captain America: The First Avenger." Peggy isn't instantly attracted to Steve, but she eventually grows fond of him. They ultimately kiss right before Steve flies on the Valkyrie, HYDRA's huge aircraft bomber, to stop the Red Skull's plot to strike the United States. While he is successful in killing the Red Skull, Steve is forced to crash the bomber into the water and is presumed dead by Peggy.

Decades later, Steve goes on missions for S.H.I.E.L.D. and develops a crush on Sharon Carter, who, unknown to him, is Peggy Carter's great-niece. Steve can be excused for harbouring romantic sentiments for her because he had no idea the two ladies were connected. But things turn strange when he and Sharon kiss after he attends Peggy's funeral and discovers their connection.

Things grow even stranger when, at the end of "Avengers: Endgame," Steve goes on a quest to restore the Infinity Stones to their respective realities and finds himself reunited with Peggy. It's wonderful that he finds a means to reconnect with his first true love, but it's a bit unnerving that he does so after having a romantic relationship with her great-niece in the future.

  • Ping-ponging back and forth between lovers in the same family (even if time travel is involved) is sort of disgusting. It's not a good idea.

Recruit adolescents to assist you in apprehending fugitive superheroes.

The Avengers were virtually split apart in "Captain America: Civil War" over the Sokovia Accords, which would ensure that they could only work under a United Nations panel. Cap, Falcon, Scarlet Witch, and Hawkeye are opposed since it would limit their ability to choose which missions to undertake. Meanwhile, Iron Man, War Machine, Vision, and Black Widow support it since it would keep superheroes from committing collateral damage during operations.

Tony Stark hires a teenager Peter Parker, whom he's had his eye on since he took on the character of Spider-Man, to give his side the upper hand. He updates Peter's outfit and whisks him away to catch Steve Rogers and his squad at Leipzig/Halle Airport, ending in a tremendous fight. Steve and Bucky manage to elude capture despite the assistance of a radioactive-spider-bitten high schooler.

While seeing Spider-Man make his MCU debut was a thrill, and his first fight was amazing, let's not forget that Tony hired a juvenile to assist him win a personal and political struggle, placing little Peter in danger. This appears to contradict Tony's "superheroes must follow the rules" mindset, doesn't it?

  • Instead, follow this advice: Youngster labour regulations exist for a reason, even if said child can save a 3,000-pound automobile dangling from a motorway bridge.

Let's carry this lethal thing straight to the murderous lunatic who is seeking for it!

In "Avengers: Infinity War," Thanos' Black Order's Ebony Maw and Cull Obsidian come in New York City to steal the Time Stone from Doctor Strange. Strange, Tony Stark, and a non-Hulk Bruce Banner are joined by Spider-Man in a tremendous brawl. Maw flees with Strange to his ship in order to steal the Time Stone from him. Tony and Spider-Man, on the other hand, sneak onboard the ship, murder Maw, and save Strange. Strange suggests returning to Earth to devise a strategy, but Tony insists on fighting Thanos on Titan with the Time Stone in tow, to which Strange grudgingly agrees.

Another case of a genius making a spectacularly foolish mistake. Tony insists on placing Peter (a teenager he has no qualms about putting in severe danger) in an outer-space combat with one of the universe's most powerful beings, with just a magician as support, who just happens to hold the extremely powerful thing Thanos is pursuing. True, the Guardians of the Galaxy came there to assist, but it was sheer coincidence; Tony honestly believed that he, Peter, and Strange would be enough to defeat Thanos.

  • Instead, swallow your pride, summon your superpowered flag-waving pal, and ask for his assistance.

Chopping a wicked giant in the shoulder is a good way to stop him from killing half the people.

Thor arrives in Wakanda with Groot and Rocket Raccoon demanding Thanos be brought to him in one of the most heartwarming scenes in "Avengers: Infinity War." Thor promptly annihilates much of Thanos' army while there, due in part to his freshly formed Stormbreaker. Despite the united efforts of the Avengers and Guardians of the Galaxy on Titan, Thanos obtains the Time Stone and zaps himself to Wakanda to join the conflict and obtain the Mind Stone, the final one required to complete his gauntlet.

Thanos is going to snap his fingers and wipe off half of all living things once he extracts the Mind Stone from the Vision and completes his cosmic rock collection when Thor comes and delivers a devastating hit to the chest with Stormbreaker. However, it just wounded Thanos, who mocks Thor for not going for the head before snapping his fingers to carry out a disastrous plan that only another sequel could cure.

While the Avengers have typically avoided murdering their opponents, Thor would have been perfectly right in giving Thanos the Marie Antoinette treatment under such circumstances.

  • Instead, while attempting to stop a genocidal extraterrestrial from annihilating half of all life in the universe, shoot to kill.

It's perfectly OK to take a few years off and let yourself go if you're the god of thunder.

Thor, played by Chris Hemsworth, has long been regarded one of the hunkiest of the Avengers, so utterly destroying his physique in "Avengers: Endgame" was a bit of a troll move.

Five years after Thanos snatched half of all living creatures from the cosmos, the remaining Avengers and Guardians of the Galaxy devise a scheme that they believe would bring everyone back. Bruce Banner (in his "Smart Hulk" incarnation) and Rocket Raccoon travel to New Asgard (located in Tnsberg, Norway) to enlist Thor for their scheme, only to find him an overweight alcoholic online slamming gamers. Thor is washed up and despondent as a result of his past failure to defeat Thanos, and his now-chunky body is a cause of continual scorn from his colleagues.

While Thor is free to have whatever physique he wants, seeing one of their heroes drowning his sorrows in munchies, booze, and gaming doesn't exactly inspire optimism in the populace. Just though Thanos is dead ("Infinity War Thanos, not "Endgame Thanos") doesn't mean there aren't other insane villains out there who may benefit from a good head chopping.

  • Advice to Follow Instead: If you're the god of thunder, try not to resemble the god of bacon.

When you're up against the hardest entity in the world, you should always lose your calm.

Doctor Strange, Iron Man, Spider-Man, Drax, Mantis, and Star-Lord surprise Thanos on his home planet of Titan in "Avengers: Infinity War." While Thanos manages to overwhelm them, Nebula crashes into the scene (very literally) and distracts her crazed father long enough for the other heroes to gain the upper hand.

While Drax, Spider-Man, Iron Man, and Doctor Strange are holding Thanos down, Mantis hops on his back and uses her powers to weaken his will long enough to almost remove the gauntlet from his hand. When Nebula discovers that Thanos murdered Gamora, Star-Lord loses his calm and assaults Thanos, forcing Mantis to lose partial control of Thanos. Thanos, now free, unleashes the power of the Infinity Stones and destroys the Avengers of the Galaxy much more than before before fleeing to Wakanda to fulfil his plot.

Star-Lord adored Gamora, but he should've kept his emotions in check instead of allowing them to get the best of him, especially when they were so close to stealing Thanos' Infinity Gauntlet. But, on the other hand, we wouldn't have the three-hour sequel that undid the damage if Star-Lord hadn't freaked out, so maybe it's better not to be too hard on him.

  • Instead, always listen to your heart – unless it advises you to mess up a plan on which half of the universe depends.

Don't be concerned about the god of mischief acquiring the Tesseract.

One of the most entertaining aspects of "Avengers: Endgame" was the use of time travel, which enabled the viewer to relive great scenes from past MCU films from new perspectives. During the Battle of New York, Steve Rogers, Tony Stark, Bruce Banner, and Scott Lang arrive in an alternate 2012 during the Battle of New York. While Bruce meets with the Ancient One at the Sanctum of New York City to get the Time Stone, Tony and Scott travel to Stark Tower to obtain the Tesseract, which holds the Space Stone. However, things do not go as planned, as a caught Loki takes the cube and uses it to teleport out of the Avengers' hands and directly into the possession of a Disney+ series.

This was a tremendous error on the part of the Avengers, who are well aware of Loki's menace even in the absence of an Infinity Stone. It's one thing to put off going after him while hanging out in 2012, since surely bringing back the dusty half of the universe's inhabitants is a higher priority. But what about omitting to repair that little blunder when returning all of the Infinity Stones after they completed their mission? Nah. Allowing Loki to travel through space and time with the Space Stone is reckless.

  • Instead, follow this advice: Don't allow the God of Mischief get away with anything. Ever.

It's a fantastic idea to break up the band due of politics.

Thaddeus "Thunderbolt" Ross, now Secretary of State, meets the Avengers to discuss the Sokovia Accords following a disastrous operation in Lagos that resulted in a huge number of deaths. He says that the United Nations has determined that the Avengers cannot function on their own due of the damage they inflicted in New York City (in "The Avengers"), Washington, D.C. (in "Captain America: The Winter Soldier"), and Sokovia (in "Avengers: Age of Ultron").

Tony Stark, along with Natasha Romanoff, Vision, and James Rhodes, promptly signs the Sokovia Accords, feeling guilty for Ultron's creation and the destruction it wrought. However, Steve Rogers is hesitant to participate in the programme and is supported by Wanda Maximoff and Sam Wilson, causing a division in the team.

Man, the squad breaks up a lot. Teammates pursue each other around the world, beat each other up, and nearly demolish an airport in Germany in the process, shattering their once-strong friendships.

Yes, government interference will always be a difficult subject, but Tony and the other Avengers who committed to the Sokovia Accords should have found a way to collaborate with Steve and the "fugitive" Avengers in case... you know... a War of Infinite Proportions occurred.

  • Instead, if your mission is to save the planet, don't let a political debate divide your team. The discussion can wait till Thanksgiving.
