Captain Marvel Seems To Be Destined To Take Down An Avenger in Endgame
It seems almost inevitable that when two superheroes meet, they end up fighting before uniting for a common goal. ‘Captain Marvel’ will be out less than two months before ‘Avengers: Endgame’, and there is a lot of speculation about her role in the war against Thanos. However, there’s also a huge chance she might butt heads with another Avenger. Let’s get to the marvelous details about this possible encounter.
A SUPERHERO THAT NO ONE EVER MENTIONED
Thanks to trailers and comments of the actors, everyone knows that ‘Captain Marvel’ takes place in the 90s, although there is no clear year yet. Some people believe that the year is 1995, but it might be earlier. Either way, Nick Fury has both eyes and looks a lot like Samuel L. Jackson did in ‘Pulp Fiction’ without the afro, of course.
Everyone is wondering why Nick Fury has never mentioned her name if they met in the 90s. She would have been the perfect solution to the Chitauri invasion of New York. However, it wasn’t until Nick Fury saw Maria Hill turning to dust that he decided to page the female superhero. The world could have been spared from the threat of Ultron if Captain Marvel had been paged before.
On the other hand, Captain Marvel was probably Nick Fury last recourse, and the movie should reveal more about this, but there is another problem in this scenario. At this point, the Avengers have no idea who Captain Marvel is, and they don’t really get well with strangers, especially those who come from outer space.
It would not be the first time that several Avengers fought against each other upon meeting. After all, in 2012’s ‘The Avengers’, Iron Man and Thor get into a huge fight over Loki’s fate. More recently, when Iron Man, Doctor Strange, and Spider-Man reached Titan, they got ambushed by the Guardians of the Galaxy. They later teamed to take the Gauntlet from Thanos, but that did not work out as they hoped.
WHO WOULD FIGHT AGAINST CAPTAIN MARVEL?
Tony Stark and Nebula are floating in space aboard the Benatar, so he is probably not the one that will fight against Carol Danvers. In fact, people believe that she will save Tony and Nebula from their current predicament. Thor could be a good guess, as he has always been rather hot-headed. However, after his father’s death, the destruction of Asgard and Mjolnir, and Loki’s passing, he might have changed.
A fight between them could reveal which one is more powerful. As a god, Thor has always been considered the most powerful among Avengers, as he could even take on the Hulk. But Captain Marvel has a power that even the God of Thunder might not be able to handle. Captain America is not the kind of person to fight first and then discover why later, but again, things are different now.
If he sees Carol Danvers as a real threat instead of an asset, then he might be persuaded into a fight. The two Captains could face each other before joining forces, and it could be the perfect way to “pass the torch” since Chris Evans is leaving the MCU and herald a new era of the Avengers. Nevertheless, it might not be that simple.
As mentioned earlier, Fury waited until the direst situation on Earth to actually call Captain Marvel. Knowing him, she was probably his last recourse, as he always finds contingency plans. It’s also likely that the pager was for a specific emergency, and if Nick Fury did not keep Captain Marvel up to date on his ideas, she might just follow a protocol that could not work.
She might not know the Avengers exist, or anything about S.H.I.E.L.D. or HYDRA. Carol Danvers might even go to the S.H.I.E.L.D. headquarters for more information about her mission. Therefore, a stranger getting into a secure place that was already infiltrated before by the enemy might not look like a reliable person to the remaining Avengers. As a result, Captain America might decide she is not with them.
Fans have yet to meet Carol Danvers, so no one knows her personality, but viewers have a clear of understanding regarding the rest of the characters. While all the Avengers feel the need to protect those around them, they are all different, which leads to disagreements. From a tagline of ‘Captain Marvel’, Carol Danvers, at one point, says, “I’m not going to fight your war. I’m going to end it.”
Consequently, she is not a meek soldier, and she might have learned it from Nick Fury, who always likes to do things his own way. Captain America has also been known for questioning authority like in ‘Civil War’. Captain Marvel might want things to go her way, but she will have to face the strong-willed Steve Rogers and the rest of the team.
They might end up going their separate ways before uniting again once they learn more about each other and the same goal they all share. Another person Captain Marvel could possibly fight against is Clint Barton, who has taken on the mantle of Ronin instead of Hawkeye. There is a reason he took on the name after the snap, and Clint might not be happy to listen to an outsider.
Another possibility is that Captain Marvel might not agree with whatever plans the remaining Avengers have come up with. One of the most popular theories is that the heroes will time travel or use the Quantum Realm to obtain the Infinity Stones. If Carol gets to Earth and discovers a bunch of misfits in costumes trying to get the most powerful objects in the universe, she might not be too pleased.
As a Kree warrior, she must have learned about Thanos and the stones, especially because Ronan the Accuser turned to the Mad Titan when the Kree-Nova war ended too soon. Captain Marvel could have the same belief as Gandalf the Gray in ‘Lord of the Rings’, as no matter who holds the Infinity Stones, they might be used for the wrong reasons.
The Avengers might not agree with her opinion and continue on their mission to obtain the precious gems. In this case, Captain Marvel might not face only one Avenger, but all of them. Loki had to face them all when he tried to take over the Earth. The Avengers imprisoned him without harm because they needed to know what else he was planning.
Another possible reason why Captain Marvel and the Avengers might not get along is if a villain intervenes. If Thanos discovers that the Kree warrior is heading to Earth to reverse what he did, then he might plant the seed of doubt in any of the superheroes. Neither side would be willing to find out if those doubts are true or false and they'll just get into a fight right away.
Although these are plausible scenarios, we hope it does not go that way because Captain Marvel will be a huge asset to the Avengers. Let us know if you think something like this might happen.
