Marvel does a great job making villains that make you question everything


Thanos is a terrible person but Marvel does a great job of planting the seed that he has a point in your head. And he isn’t the first villain to do it.

We learned the hard way that Marvel likes to create villains that makes you question everything. Typically, the villains are black and white. They’re bad and the heroes are good. With Avengers: Infinity War, Thanos is hands down a terrible person.

If anything, he has the same mindset that Adolf Hitler did. But there is one specific line that had me, and I’m sure many of you, questioning how much you hated him. Thanos, while talking to Gamora, talks about the finite amount of resources around the universe.

While his methods are not accurate, and he is a terrible person, he is right about that.

We take for granted the amount of resources we have around the world and we’re not recognizing that it is a problem until it is too late.

So basically, he had one good point and the rest of him was terrible. Still, though, it was something for us to think about.

The same thing happened with Killmonger. Yes, his ideas were less than ideal and he was flawed but he brought up points that had many audience members going “Well, he’s not wrong.”

Marvel just likes to make you question everything happening. Look at characters like Loki and Bucky. They both have done terrible things but we feel for them and relate to them. It is complicated but then again, so are human beings. It is just a great way to examine how we look at other human beings.
