Avengers Assemble

My #1 Favorite Moment from the MCU- Avengers Assemble, The Avengers

There have been a countless number of moments in the MCU that I have loved, but out of all of them, this was, and still is, the defining moment of the MCU.

The Avengers spent the majority of the movie trying to learn how to work as a cohesive team, with little success. After Loki manages to nearly cripple the S.H.I.E.L.D. Helicarrier and kills Agent Phil Coulson, the heroes are able to rally together to defend New York against Loki’s Chitauri army. In this now legendary moment, Bruce Banner effortlessly transforms into the Hulk and punches a flying Leviathan into the ground as the Avengers Assemble in defiance of the Chitauri for the first time.

I still remember going to see this movie opening day with my dad, and up to that point, it was the greatest movie I had ever seen. I think most people even understand just how great this movie really was.

No one had tried to do a movie like The Avengers before. There were movies about superhero teams before, like the X-Men and Fantastic Four, but they didn’t have this level of world-building or attention. The closest I think anyone had gotten to the MCU was the DC Animated Universe from the 90s and early 2000s.

The Avengers managed to do what many had thought to be impossible, and redefined what it meant to make films about Superheroes. I hadn’t paid much attention to the MCU until Captain America: The First Avenger, but this was the moment where everything clicked, and I realized just how special the MCU truly was. But then I saw the end credits, and I saw him.

That’s when I realized that while what I just saw was amazing, it was only the tip of the iceberg. Nearly seven years and sixteen films later, the story that the MCU has been building towards for eleven years is about to be completed. And as I look back on what has come, I still consider this scene to be my all time favorite from the MCU.

I’m going to go see Avengers: Endgame in less than an hour. Whatever happens in the next three hours, no matter how this ends, this will mark the end of an era for Marvel and for superhero movies. Excelsior!

"Consider, can the universe be justifiably called infinite? Doubtful. It may not have a discernible end, but it had a beginning and its component parts definitely have a limited cosmological shelf-life. Splitting hairs or not, if history tells us anything, it's that scientists often make very poor poets. We're all just a ship of fools chasing phantoms, heedless of what really underwrites natural law." - Okabe Rintaro
