It’s no secret that Avengers: Endgame was a glaring failure. Marvel let us down in a shockingly unpredictable way. The writers at NPC Daily explicitly explained that the finale of the franchise would be an epic failure unless all of our heroes was a transgender persons of color. If you’ve seen Avengers: Endgame, chances are you were just as disappointed that Marvel decided not to make any of the heroes a transgender person of color nor did they include the 20 minute monologue of Thanos and Captain America discussing the oppression that marginalized groups face in Trump’s America.
Instead what we got was a three hour appeal to the male fantasy. Straight heterosexual cisgendered individuals fighting violently and not protesting in the streets like liberals across our dying country are so used to doing. Sorry Marvel – that hint at a homosexual character during the support group scene near the beginning of the movie isn’t enough. Not nearly enough.
Let’s face it. Marvel dropped the ball. They had every opportunity to show support for marginalized groups through spreading awareness of campus rape culture and the violence of Trump supporters in Avengers: Endgame. All of the heroes that died in Infinity War could have come back as transgender people of color. Did we see any of that? Absolutely not. Why? Capitalism.
Avengers: Endgame is a clear example of why we need higher taxes to support our growing population of undocumented immigrants. Make sure you vote blue no matter who. Diversity is our strength.
