Yeah, the montage of Captain Marvel getting up from her fuckups really, REALLY falls flat because of how much the movie ignored the rest of the MCU timeline. Canonically she apparently did so fucking little about the Kree assholes that in Agents of Shield the Kree are pretty much the most regularly malevolent alien conspiracy and Ronan is left alone enough to bathe in Xandarian blood regularly, join forces with Thanos and GET THE POWER OF A FUCKING INFINITY STONE.
Remember when Batman vs Superman awkwardly implied Wonder Woman ignored all the problems of the world for almost a century? Remember when Wonder Woman's solo film did everything possible to soft-imply-retcon Wondy was actually fighting supernatural threats behind the scenes instead of crying over old pictures of Steve?
The MCU doesn't have that out with Carol. Because they can't GIVE her an out without retconning Star-Lord, who's pretty much the biggest deal in the MCU to normies since Tony himself.>>65068043
Eh. Relative to the comics MCU Scarlet Witch has a...okay, it's not GREAT.>Went to Ultron with Pietro for revenge=Pietro ded, eastern european city almost meteored into the ground, Ultron vs the Avengers>Helps Cap fight crime, gets upset because she accidentally collateral damage'd a guy=becomes a significant talking point over the Tony-Steve split>Saves Vision's jobbing ass>Fucking wrecks the war machines of the Thanos minion army that made the Chitauri look like dogshit in terms of being good at fighting Captain America
But hey! It's still technically better than her comics track record!>>65068063
Meh, I'm an Asgard supremacist myself. But hey-if Infinity Stones are handing out powers like candy, what about the REALITY stone huh? Those forgettable dark elves almost totaled the 9 Realms with a thing that wasn't really part of it but drew on it's power!>>65068111
Shit it's out that soon? God damn it's so fucking weird of them to shove Captain Marvel so near the release date.
