The newest trailer for Marvel Studios' biggest movie event ever, Avengers: Infinity War, dropped a few weeks ago and the hype for it has never been bigger. All of the Marvel Cinematic Universe's characters of the last ten years will finally be in a two-part film event to take down one of their biggest (and most powerful) foes to date.
However, there is some regard to us as humans that drive us to invest in many of these characters, whether in a joint film or an individual film. We treasure many of these characters because of their personalities, actions, and even powers. Let us all see what character from Avengers: Infinity War is you, based on your birth month.
1. January: Spider-Man
Tom Holland's incredible debut as Spider-Man in Captain America: Civil War was embraced by Marvel fans everywhere, and his solo film that came out last summer was just as good. He represents a fresh start, like any new year, and has great qualities that all you New Year babies are!
2. February: Groot
The loveable Groot from Guardians of the Galaxy has three words in his vocabulary, let's hope you don't. However, Groot is a friend to all he meets, and the month of love and respect is the best choice for this character! Let's just hope you never say 'I am Groot' to a professor or your boss when they want an answer.
3. March: Black Widow
Natasha Romanoff is a former agent of the KGB and S.H.I.E.L.D, as well as being one of the founding members of the Avengers. She's headstrong, never depends on being 'lucky' (although sometimes it may seem as so), and is overall a perfect character to identify with as winter turns to spring and it gets warmer out!
4. April: Thor
Recently losing his eye and hammer in Thor: Ragnarok, Thor remains a strong component to the MCU as well as being the perfect choice for this month. Since it rains a lot this time of year, and he is the god of thunder, why not make the combination? If you're born in April, this is the best choice for you as the movie itself premieres April 27th (selfish plug).
5. May: Iron Man
The character that kick-started the MCU back in 2008, Iron Man is the epitome of enigmatic superheroes that still knows the line between right and wrong. As summer begins, you best have your best swimsuit or shorts ready to wear like Tony Stark vacationing and driving in a race in Italy before being attacked by Whiplash. (Disclaimer: there is no such threat in Italy, people.)
6. June: Hulk
"HULK SMASH!" is probably the first thing you said at your first birthday party, smashing the cake or throwing your presents around in the house. If you were born in June, Hulk is your choice due to a change of weather, a change of clothes for the beach, and a change in attitude from hibernation to exploration as you travel around for the summer. Plus, you might have a connection with someone born in March since Hulk and Black Widow have a romantic angle throughout most of the MCU.
7. July: Captain America
July 4th is America's founding anniversary, so it's no such coincidence that Captain America, Steve Rogers, is your birth month Avenger. You can identify with him as being headstrong, calculating, and overall self-confident as the summer rolls along and your 'beach bod' ain't looking too good. Also, I don't think shields can be used as surfboards.
8. August: Star-Lord
The leader of the Guardians of the Galaxy, Star-Lord represents August as a last-ditch effort to get some summer activities in before fall sets in. Also, I was born in August so he's my choice regardless hahaha. However, Star-Lord is a perfect character from the MCU that connects with audiences as being outright human in a different universe.
9. September: Black Panther
One of the most popular characters in MCU, Black Panther represents hope, change, and even strength as fall sets in. Additionally, the recent success of Black Panther the movie has increased Wakanda's great protector as an underrated hero in the MCU. Be proud if you were born in September, WAKANDA FOREVER!
10. October: Scarlet Witch
October is always a popular season for those who love Halloween, so why not have a mystical heroine from the MCU be your birth month Avenger! Defiant and powerful, Wanda Maximoff is your best option to identify with!
11. November: Doctor Strange
Armed with dimensional powers through an Infinity Stone, Stephen Strange is November's Avenger for his calm presence as a sorcerer, his willpower to fight back, and his defiantly headstrong personality. Be proud to be born in November and identify with his strengths!
12. December: Thanos
"Destiny still arrives...I hope they remember you..." If you have ever said this to a professor before a final exam, or even to your parents as you strut down the stairs on your birthday, then Thanos is your guy, I mean person, I mean alien. Let's hope you don't get all the Infinity Stones on your birthday that month because that might put the world at risk.
