The End of Infinity War

The End of Infinity War

Just who was that on Nick Fury's phone, and why? Find out here.

Quick warning- lots of spoilers to follow. If you haven't seen Infinity War, don't read this yet. And go watch it, because it's seriously awesome. Then come back and read this.

With that out of the way, Infinity War has finally come and it ends on a devastating cliffhanger. Like most Marvel movies though, it also gives us a hint of what's to come with a post-credits scene. In this one, just before disappearing, Nick Fury manages to send out a call for... someone. But who is it? Well, that's what I'm here to explain.

Longtime Marvel fans will recognize the symbol on Fury's phone as Captain Marvel's. For those who don't know about her, it's a stylized version of this:

Known as Carol Danvers publicly, she's a superhero who can probably be best described in abilities as being comparable to the MCU equivalent of Superman. She can fly and send out energy beams, and she's super strong too. Someone like her is going to be needed to take on someone as powerful as the mad titan Thanos and so it's definitely a good thing Fury called her in.

The questions you might have now are how does Fury have contact with Captain Marvel in the first place, and why didn't he call her sooner? Both good inquiries. To answer the first, we'll have to wait for the Captain Marvel solo movie starring Brie Larson in 2019 but the short answer is that he probably worked with her at some point when he was still young and had both eyes. The Captain Marvel movie is set to be an origin story, so we'll likely learn more about this when it comes out.

As for why Fury didn't call her right away? This is harder to answer and it will most likely be elaborated on in the next Avengers film, but it's possible that he didn't think it was necessary. Perhaps he sees her as something of a fail-safe, only to be called in for the greatest of crises due to how much power she has to be potentially destructive. It's also possible that since SHIELD is less in control than it used to be prior to the events of Winter Soldier, he wasn't as aware of how dangerous Thanos was until it was too late.

So there you have it, the rundown on one of the newest heroes to be hitting the MCU. For extra context, see Kelly Sue DeConnick's excellent run of the Captain Marvel comics starting with In Pursuit of Flight.

9 Reasons Crocs Are The Only Shoes You Need

Crocs have holes so your swag can breathe.

Do you have fond childhood objects that make you nostalgic just thinking about your favorite Barbie or sequenced purse? Well for me, its my navy Crocs. Those shoes put me through elementary school. I eventually wore them out so much that I had to say goodbye. I tried Airwalks and sandals, but nothing compared. Then on my senior trip in New York City, a four story Crocs store gleamed at me from across the street and I bought another pair of Navy Blue Crocs. The rest is history. I wear them every morning to the lake for practice and then throughout the day to help air out my soaking feet. I love my Crocs so much, that I was in shock when it became apparent to me that people don't feel the same. Here are nine reasons why you should just throw out all of your other shoes and settle on Crocs.

1. They are waterproof.

These bad boys can take on the wettest of water. Nobody is sure what they are made of, though. The debate is still out there on foam vs. rubber. You can wear these bad boys any place water may or may not be: to the lake for practice or to the club where all the thirsty boys are. But honestly who cares because they're buoyant and water proof. Raise the roof.

2. Your most reliable support system

There is a reason nurses and swimming instructors alike swear by Crocs. Comfort. Croc's clogs will make you feel like your are walking on a cloud of Laffy Taffy. They are wide enough that your toes are not squished, and the rubbery material forms perfectly around your foot. Added bonus: The holes let in a nice breeze while riding around on your Razor Scooter.

3. Insane durability

Have you ever been so angry you could throw a Croc 'cause same? Have you ever had a Croc bitten while wrestling a great white shark? Me too. Have you ever had your entire foot rolled like a fruit roll up but had your Crocs still intact? Also me. All I know is that Seal Team 6 may or may not have worn these shoes to find and kill Osama Bin Laden. Just sayin'.

4. Bling, bling, bling

Jibbitz, am I right?! These are basically they're own money in the industry of comfortable footwear. From Spongebob to Christmas to your favorite fossil, Jibbitz has it all. There's nothing more swag-tastic than pimped out crocs. Lady. Killer.

5. So many options

From the classic clog to fashionable sneakers, Crocs offer so many options that are just too good to pass up on. They have fur lined boots, wedges, sandals, loafers, Maryjane's, glow in the dark, Minion themed, and best of all, CAMO! Where did your feet go?!

6. Affordable

Crocs: $30

Feeling like a boss: Priceless

7. Two words: Adventure Straps

Because you know that when you move the strap from casual mode chillin' in the front to behind the heal, it's like using a shell on Mario Cart.

8. Crocs cares

Okay, but for real, Crocs is a great company because they have donated over 3 million pairs of crocs to people in need around the world. Move over Toms, the Croc is in the house.

9. Stylish AF

The boys will be coming for you like Steve Irwin.

Who cares what the haters say, right? Wear with pride, and go forth in style.
