Marvel Monday – Avengers: Infinity War

Last month saw the arrival of the War for the Universe in the MCU. A war that has been in the making for the last 10 years. As it turns out, though I was taking a small break from posting here, I didn’t stop writing.

I am so thankful that the guys over on the podcast “The Splash Network”, gave me the opportunity to write a 3 article series for them, with the build up and the aftermath of Avengers: Infinity War.

Part 1 of my three article series was one where I dove deep into the big question “What are the Infinity Stones and Where did they come from?”. In that article I take you through not only what each stone is, but the history of the stone in the MCU (talk about having to do some research!)

Part 2 was one that I really enjoyed writing, I came across a book by author Travis Langley, this book was called “Captain America vs Iron Man: Freedom, Security, Psychology”. In this book of essays, Travis Langley and 15 other contributors, including Stan Lee, break down the psychology of the origin stories and the lives of both Steve Rogers and Tony Stark to show why they ended up on the sides of Civil War that they did. So in Part 2 I use this a tool to break down everything that happens from the end of Avengers: Age of Ultron all the way through Civil War, analyzing Steve and Tony’s personality differences and similarities to put where we are at the start of Avengers: Infinity War into perspective.

The last part, part 3, was the part that took me to longest to figure out how I was going to write it. Part 3 is called “Avengers: Infinity War – The Aftermath”. At first I was going to break down the entire movie and dive into the meanings behind it. Well I got through the first half hour of the movie and realized the breaking down the film was going to as emotional if not more emotional than watching the movie the first time. So I did something different, talking about the people and events – but if you wanna know more, well, you’re just gonna have to read the articles for yourself šŸ™‚
