Why Avengers: Endgame will only succeed if all of the heroes are transgender people of color

It's time for Marvel to show just how diverse they can be

With the hype of the Avengers story line coming to an end with the premiere of Avengers: Endgame on April 26th, we must hold Marvel and Disney to the intersectional standards of 2019. This means that we can safely expect Avengers: Engame to include at least a third of the cast to be transgender, half the cast being marginalized immigrants of color with the rest being whoever is white and unimportant.

The big question, of course, is how can this be achieved if all of the characters have already been developed over the past 10 years? Easy. Marvel could easily surprise us with a revelation that Tony Stark is gay or that Widow of Color was born male.

Avengers: Endgame will be a box office record success if and only if they abide by these reasonable guidelines. As avid liberals and fans of the Marvel franchise, we’re looking forward to a Hulk with gender dysphoria, a Hawk Eye with a hearing disability, Antman with they/them pronouns, Thor with muscular dystrophy and an ally Captain America who actively rejects Trump’s bigoted ideas and campaign promises in at least a 20 minute dual monologue between him and Thanos in support of victims of systemic oppression and rape culture.

They already messed up by not making Captain Marvel a transgender person of color but they still have one more movie to right that wrong. For instance, everyone who died in Avengers: Infinity War can simply come back as disabled homosexuals with skin conditions but are still seen as beautiful. Only time will tell.

What will you do if you don’t see any diversity or intersectional representation in Avengers: Endgame?
