5 More Heroes We Might Lose In Infinity War

5 More Heroes We Might Lose In Infinity War

There's just too many good guys for all of them to survive

In my last article I mentioned five of the heroes I didn't think would make it to the end of Infinity War, but they weren't the only characters on my mind. The upcoming movie promises to be such a grand finale that I felt compelled to add five more the list.

1. Captain America

C’mon, we were all expecting this one at least a little bit, right? Cap has been fighting nearly his whole life, and with the Civil War movie we basically saw all that ‘good soldier’ resolve start to crumble. It seems unlikely that Steve Rogers would just spend the rest of his life on the run from the law.

In Civil War we saw a Captain America who was well-and-truly tired of war. It seems perfectly on par with his character to sacrifice himself for the greater good, saving a teammate or a civilian in danger. If this does happen, most likely it will end up being a big tear-jerker scene where Marvel will play on the fractured friendship of Tony Stark and Steve, or possibly even his connection with Bucky.

All of us on opening night.

2. Loki

This one is hard to say, what with Loki’s storyline being so convoluted, much like his own character. Loki was introduced as a villain in Avengers when he tried to take over the Earth, but he apparently switched sides in Thor: Ragnarok to team up with his brother against their murderous sister.

Now, with Asgard destroyed, it seems the Asgardians' plotline may be coming to an end. Considering that Loki is one of the most popular characters in the MCU franchise, his death, possibly saving his brother in the upcoming film, would be an incredibly sad and poignant ending to his story.

Marvel fans #before the movie.

3. The Vision

Unfortunately, Vision is probably the most likely hero to bite the dust in the upcoming Infinity War movie. The android was created by the Mind stone, the yellow stone in the middle of his forehead that powers and sustains him, but we know that Thanos is after that very same stone.

In the trailers, we even see Thanos begin to pry the stone out of Vision’s head. Considering Vision cannot survive without the stone, it seems likely that this will kill him. Which is sad because he's one of my favorites. Marvel also likes to trick us, so I'm holding out hope that the trailer is just to make us think he'll die. Please, Marvel, hear my prayers and have mercy on my poor android son.

Marvel crushing us with feels during the movie.

4. Nebula

I kind of imagine Nebula as being the female, alien version of Loki. She has major issues with her adoptive father, desperately wants revenge, and hates her sibling.

Sounds familiar, right?

While of course Nebula does have a lot of differences from Loki too, I think she may be one of the casualties of the upcoming movie, for much the same reasons as Loki. I don’t imagine there are any characters other than Drax that more deserve to be the one to finally kill the Mad Titan. In this way, I don’t think I would be too sad about her death. It would be more of a bittersweet ending than anything else.

Marvel fans #after the movie.

5. Hawkeye

Though it’s possible Hawkeye will survive to the end as some sort of lesson that even normal humans can beat an enemy like Thanos through teamwork and stuff, I really doubt it. Hawkeye is an amazing and underrated hero, and he deserves so much more credit for being in the Avengers, but this time I just don’t think he’ll cut it.

He has no powers, no fancy suit to keep him safe, not even a rechargeable weapon. Once Clint’s out of arrows, he’s out. We saw a glimpse of this problem in the Avengers movie when he was on the rooftop of one of the buildings, with Chitaari soldiers inbound and no arrows left. He barely made it out of that one alive, how can we expect him to go up against the Mad Titan and survive? Plus, with the introduction of his family in the Civil War movie (which I high-key disagree with for reasons I'll write about later), we now have the incentive to root for his survival. And Marvel gave us that hope very much on purpose.

Marvel ultimately enjoying our suffering...

11 Things Psychology Majors Hear That Drive Them Crazy

No pun intended.

We've all been there. You're talking to a new acquaintance, or a friend of your parents, or whoever. And then, you get the dreaded question.

"So what are you studying in school?"

Cue the instant regret of picking Psychology as your major, solely for the fact that you are 99.9% likely to receive one of the slightly comical, slightly cliche, slightly annoying phrases listed below. Don't worry though, I've included some responses for you to use next time this comes up in conversation. Because it will.

Quick side note, these are all real-life remarks that I've gotten when I told people I was a psych major.

Here we go.

1. So are you, like, analyzing me right now?

Well, I wasn't. But yeah. Now I am.

2. Ugh so jealous! You picked the easy major.

"Lol" is all I have to say to this one. I'm gonna go write my 15-page paper on cognitive impairment. You have fun with your five college algebra problems, though!

3. So can you tell me what you think is wrong with me? *Shares entire life story*

Don't get me wrong; I love listening and helping people get through hard times. But we can save the story about how one time that one friend said that one slightly rude comment to you for later.

4. Well, s**t, I have to be careful what I say around you.

Relax, pal. I couldn't diagnose and/or institutionalize you even if I wanted to.

5. OMG! I have the perfect first client for you! *Proceeds to vent about ex-boyfriend or girlfriend*

Possible good response: simply nod your head the entire time, while actually secretly thinking about the Ben and Jerry's carton you're going to go home and demolish after this conversation ends.

6. So you must kind of be like, secretly insane or something to be into Psychology.

Option one: try and hide that you're offended. Option two: just go with it, throw a full-blown tantrum, and scare off this individual, thereby ending this painful conversation.

7. Oh. So you want to be a shrink?

First off, please. Stop. Calling. Therapists. Shrinks. Second, that's not a psych major's one and only job option.

8. You know you have to go to grad school if you ever want a job in Psychology.

Not completely true, for the record. But I am fully aware that I may have to spend up to seven more years of my life in school. Thanks for the friendly reminder.

9. So you... want to work with like... psychopaths?

Let's get serious and completely not-sarcastic for a second. First off, I take personal offense to this one. Having a mental illness does not classify you as a psycho, or not normal, or not deserving of being treated just like anyone else on the planet. Please stop using a handful of umbrella terms to label millions of wonderful individuals. It's not cool and not appreciated.

10. So can you, like, read my mind?

It actually might be fun to say yes to this one. Try it out and see what happens. Get back to me.

11. You must be a really emotional person to want to work in Psychology.

Psychology is more than about feeling happy, or sad, or angry. Psychology is about understanding the most complex thing to ever happen to us: our brain. How it works the way it does, why it works the way it does, and how we can better understand and communicate with this incredibly mysterious, incredibly vast organ in our tiny little skull. That's what psychology is.

So keep your head up, psychology majors, and don't let anyone discourage you about choosing, what is in my opinion, the coolest career field out there. The world needs more people like us.

Short Stories On Odyssey: Roses

What's worth more than red roses?


Five years old and a bouquet of roses rested in her hands. The audience-- clapped away her performance, giving her a standing ovation. She's smiling then because everything made sense, her happiness as bright as the roses she held in her hands.

Fifteen now, and a pile of papers rested on her desk. The teachers all smiled when she walked down the aisle and gave them her presentation. She was content then but oh so stressed, but her parents happy she had an A as a grade, not red on her chest.

Eighteen now and a trail of tears followed her to the door. Partying, and doing some wild things, she just didn't know who she was. She's crying now, doesn't know anymore, slamming her fists into walls, pricking her fingers on roses' thorns.

Twenty-one and a bundle of bills were grasped in her hands. All the men-- clapped and roared as she sold her soul, to the pole, for a dance. She's frowning now because everything went wrong, but she has to stay strong, for rich green money, is worth more than red roses.
