Marvel Studios: These Stories Superheroes Have In Common

While it is certain that all Marvel characters are one of a kind, many have gone through the same things along their journeys. Comic book fans know that stories repeat themselves almost every time. Whether in terms of fights, philosophy of life, or intrigue, many superheroes have a common past. If we just learned on which earth the MCU was set, all of its protagonists – with a few exceptions – live the same stories. Here are the biggest things that superheroes have in common.

THEY ARE DEAD BUT COME BACK

If there’s a franchise in which dead superheroes magically return, it’s within Marvel Studios. Sometimes, we are told that the characters had simply disappeared a few years before reappearing under the guise of an explanation that was not always credible. Regarding the fact that many have died lately, we must admit that the snap of Thanos had its share of responsibility. Of course, since it was reversed, everything was back to normal and our late heroes resurfaced. The one who might never come back though, is Iron Man, but his last words before leaving us could have an impact on the rest of the MCU.

THEY DIDN’T WANT TO BE SUPER-HEROES AT LEAST ONCE IN THEIR LIFE

In humans, there is the midlife crisis, in beings with magical powers, there is the superhero crisis! How many characters have already expressed their desire to stop everything to resume (or start) a normal life? Whether it was recently Steve Rogers, who gave his shield to Sam Wilson, Peter Parker at the time or Fat Thor when he was suffering from his loss to Thanos, many of them have thought of laying down their arms permanently. Finally, their convictions brought them back on the right path: heroes one day, heroes always!

THEY HAVE ALL LOST THEIR SECRET IDENTITY

While superheroes sought to keep low profile using a secret identity, they haven’t been anonymous to the world for very long.. Tony Stark announced he was Iron Man at the end of his first movie, and Peter Parker’s secret identity was shattered at the end of Spider-Man Far From Home. In the comics, Thor was also hiding behind the image of a doctor named Donald Blake, and he’s obviously not the only one who used this ruse.

They fought with each other

A great classic from Marvel studios: Before becoming friends, the franchise’s superheroes compete against each other to prove (to themselves) who’s stronger. Such fights help answer questions and fan debates about who would be able to defeat whom. It’s also a handy way to get to know each hero’s skills better. This life is ultimately not suitable for all beings with power, Sprite of the Eternals has for example decided to become an average human!
