Once, there was an Idea, an Idea of youtubers, to put into words things we could not, to explain the storytelling that we may have missed.

This project on a... "metaphysical" or philosophical level is why I love the MCU, and why I love stargate, Star trek, SW, Farscape, LOTR, Wilbur Smith's Egyptian series, Julian May, Raymond E Feist and countless other scifi, fantasy, and historical writings. They tell the story of US, as people, the reflections of our nobility, and our failure and what we learn from both. Unlike tribalism, these stories tell us what we have in common, and how what we have in common is far, far more powerful than what sets us apart.

Iíve been thinking a lot about these sorts of moments since seeing Endgame. There are so many themes that are repeated throughout the MCU. Particularly the whole father figure motif which is continually prevalent. As well as the deconstruction of the superhero genre from taking these individuals and setting them up on a heroes journey only to continually show them to be just regular people who have gifts and trying to do the best they can but frequently failing, which I think is why the MCU now has a very clearly defined sense of humour that interjects with what would otherwise be dramatic moments.
