That Time The Simpsons Hilariously Poked Fun at Marvel's Post-Credit Scenes
The Simpsons just took Marvel’s beloved trope and gave it their classic, satirical twist.
- The Simpsons humorously parodied Marvel's iconic post-credit scenes in season 29.
- Bart and Lisa convince Homer to stay after the credits.
- The scenes include Spider-Man's Uncle Ben as a supervillain and Nick Fury being recruited.
If you are a fan of The Simpsons, we're willing to bet one big reason is their knack for making fun of all things pop culture. And let's be honest, you can't talk about pop culture without mentioning Marvel movies, and the show has thrown in tons of skits and references to Marvel with one particularly standing out.
The Simpsons Took a Playful Jab at Marvel's Iconic Post-Credit Scenes
In episode 13 of season 29, the Simpson family is watching a Marvel movie in the theater. As it ends, Homer is ready to bolt, but Bart and Lisa, the savvy kids they are, know better.
If you pay attention to the credits, they are hilarious enough, but when they stop rolling, — that’s when the fun begins. The Simpsons' version of Marvel's post-credit scenes is nothing short of epic.
Marvel’s Post Credit Scenes in The Simpsons Are Comedy Gold
First up, we see two villains chatting about the Avengers. The boss villain lasers his henchman into oblivion. But it gets better. The boss villain is revealed to be none other than Spider-Man's Uncle Ben.
Uncle Ben, traditionally a symbol of wisdom and morality, is sitting on a throne of skulls. He even flips the script on his famous line, saying, "With great power comes NO responsibility!" and cackles like a true supervillain.
Homer is about to leave the theater again, but there's another sequence. In a second scene, clearly a nod to the first Iron Man movie, Nick Fury gets a visit from a dude wearing not one, but two eye-patches. This guy's mission is to assemble the greatest team of team assemblers.
And just when you think it can't get any funnier, they announce that the fictional movie Assemblers Assemble is coming to theaters in just 10 minutes.
