9 Quotes That Perfectly Capture The Cinematic Masterpiece Of The Marvel Universe

"I'm with you until the end of the line."

Avengers Endgame Poster

I had never understood the love that people have for movie franchises until I saw "The Avengers" movie.

Even then, I thought it was a good movie. It quickly went to the back of my mind like most movies that I see. It wasn't until I watched "Captain America: The First Avenger" that I felt this spark ignite.

Watching Marvel movies always makes me feel like a little kid, cheering on the good guys and watching as the bad guys lose.

The thing that makes the MCU so powerful is that the good guys and bad guys aren't always clear. Marvel does an amazing job at capturing the complexity of human beings and human nature. Even the "good" guy can have selfish reasons for being good, and the "bad" guy isn't as bad as you think once you learn their story.

*SPOILERS ahead*

The First Avenger Captain America on paper is an all-good American boy with a heart of gold, but he has his own desires like anyone else.

He has a desire to be praised, to be loved, to be loyal to his beliefs, even if it's against those closest to him. He ultimately chooses himself over being there for his friends or the world. He realizes that his happiness was tied to a time period and woman that was long gone, only accessible through time travel.

The first villain for the Avengers to face is Loki, who on paper is a bad guy who killed thousands in the battle of New York. Looking further, it was because he felt he wasn't loved enough by his father.

When you peel back the layers, it's easy to find ways to relate to Loki. He believes that he is unlovable and that his only purpose in life is to be the bad guy because he felt he had no other options. Loki felt his father was hard on him and later found out that he was adopted. He learned he biologically was a frost giant and was adopted after being abandoned on Jötunheim. Loki's biological family, the Frost Giants, were longtime enemies of Asgardariens. This type of realization causes confusion to anyone on their identity and what their purpose is. Obviously, most people won't take the route of becoming a killer, but you can find ways to understand why he did.

The Avengers aren't totally clean. They also have their own demons they have had to face and people they have killed.

Natasha (Black Widow) was raised to be an assassin and killed many people before her journey with the Avengers started. Clint (Hawkeye) went on to become a killer when he lost his family to the snap and the only way for him to get on with his day was killing gang leaders even though it wasn't up to him to give justice.

Regardless of how you look at it, the Marvel franchise isn't just CGI and Fight Scenes but movies filled with anger, love, friendship, grief, family, and self-acceptance. Here are 9 quotes that feature this spirit.

1. "But what is grief if not love preserving?" – Vision

2. "Don't waste it. Don't waste your life."- Ho Yinsen

3. “I can’t control their fear, only my own” – Scarlet Witch 

4. "But a thing isn't beautiful because it lasts. It's a privilege to be among them." – Vision

5. "I'm with you until the end of the line" - Captain America

6.“Whatever happens tomorrow, you must promise me one thing. That you will stay who you are, not a perfect soldier, but a good man.” ― Dr. Abraham Erskine

7. “Compromise where you can. Where you can't, don't. Even if everyone is telling you that something wrong is something right. Even if the whole world is telling you to move, it is your duty to plant yourself like a tree, look them in the eye, and say, 'No, you move.'"- Peggy Carter

8. “We never lose our demons. We only learn to live above them”- The Wise One 

9. “Everyone fails at who they're supposed to be, Thor. The measure of a person, of a hero, is how well they succeed at being who they are.” – Frigga

No Sex And Upstate New York

A modern-day reincarnation of Carrie Bradshaw's classic column


Around the age of 12, when I was deciding whether or not to be gay, Satan appeared on my left shoulder. “Ramsssey,” he said with that telltale lisp. “Come over to our side. We have crazy partiessss.” He made a strong case, bouncing up and down on my shoulder with six-pack abs and form-fitting Calvin Kleins. An angel popped up on the other shoulder and was going to warn me about something, but Satan interrupted- “Shut up, you crusty-ass bitch!’ The angel was pretty crusty. She disappeared, and from that moment forward I was gay.

A lot of awesome things come along with being the top-dog of the school, but you, right now, are building the foundation for the next 4 years that you will spend in high school. I know you've heard it all. "Get involved", "You'll regret not going to prom", "You're going to miss this". As redundant as these seem, they're true. Although I am just at the beginning of my senior year, I am realizing how many lasts I am encountering.
