5 Things MCU Nailed Better Compared to the Comics
Sometimes, Marvel movies don't just bring comics to life, but even make them better.
The Marvel Cinematic Universe took many classic comic book elements and gave them a fresh, sometimes better, spin. Fans on Reddit shared some aspects they believe were done better in the MCU.
Thanos: Brains Over Brawn
Remember how Thanos could shoot death rays from his hands in the comics? The MCU decided to skip that and portrayed him as more of a strategic and physically powerful villain.
This change made Thanos a more grounded and still formidable adversary, relying on his intellect and strength rather than flashy powers.
JARVIS and Vision's Origin
In a cool twist, the MCU turned JARVIS from a human butler into an AI, who later becomes Vision. This not only modernized the character but also added an interesting layer to Vision's origin, making it unique to the cinematic universe.
Young Aunt May
Aunt May got a glamorous makeover in the MCU, moving away from the traditional elderly figure to a younger, more dynamic character we’ve seen twice on the big screen, and thousands of times in the comics. This change added a fresh dynamic to Peter Parker's home life.
Tony Stark's Open Identity
The MCU did a bold thing, having Tony Stark reveal his identity as Iron Man right at the end of the first movie, breaking away from the long-held secret identity trope in the comics. This decision set a new tone for the MCU, where heroes are publicly known figures.
The Cost of Using Infinity Stones
In the comics, using the Infinity Stones was like a free-for-all with no real consequences. The MCU changed this by adding a significant cost to using these powerful gems.
If you're not strong enough, using the stones can take a heavy toll, preventing their overuse. This change added much higher stakes and a sense of realism to the story.
