MARVEL: Some Epic Movie Plots We Should Have but We (Probably) Won’t

Having all of them in one single movie is every Marvel fan dream, isn’t it?

Before you get into this long-read further, let me tell you two words about the picture (with also the caption) above: Highly Impossible. Now go on, I have something important to tell. The title speaks for itself, doesn’t it?

I believe that most of us have ever imagined the Avengers, the X-Men, Fantastic Four and any other well known alliances from the Marvel Universe  are together in one movie as it is illustrated in some of Marvel comics. I bet most of us DID think about this at least once. Especially during the hype of Captain America: Civil War last year. Well, if you’ve never imagined such things, then you should, at least during and after reading this post.

There are some big big holes in the cinematic universe of Marvel and most people who consider themselves as the big fans of the franchise may have realized this as well. In this post I would like to point out some comic-based plots that can make what we have been watching for years in the cinema even better.

The Illuminati

illuminati1
Yes. That’s Charles Xavier. Got the idea of the title of this post now? 

 

 

You may think of a secret organization. Well, BINGO.

The First (Failed) Attempt to Form Registered Heroes Association

Following the war between Kree and Skrull, it was Tony Stark (Iron Man) who came up with the idea of forming an official organization that could band together various heroes to prevent planetary threats. Tony invited Black Bolt, Mr. Fantastic, Namor and Doctor Strange to meet at the palace of Black Panther in Wakanda. Due to a lack of trust among them, most of them raised several objections to Tony’s vision while Black Panther refuse to join the alliance. Finally, instead of forming official organization to work together, five of them, excluding Black Panther, agreed to secretly share information so that they might better anticipate and respond to any threatening events. Not so long after this, the father of all X-Men joined them.

The Secret Missions

The Illuminati was formed far before the civil war and the members have gone through several epic adventures.

Journey to Skrull planet

‘This is a WARNING.’ Credit to: Vavel for providing this copy

They went on a journey to the Skrull home-world to deliver a warning. Unfortunately, the leader of the Srullls saw this as an insult and declared a battle against our heroes. During the fight, they were captured after they got their super powers nullified by the inhabitants of the planet until Tony Stark successfully escaped by taking advantage of the Skrulls’ carelessness. The Skrulls assumed Tony Stark as a useless weakling, because he is the one without super power among the group, without his powered armor. In the end, Tony helped the other members to escape and find their way back home.

The Infinity Gems Guardians

Illuminati
The Infinity Gems Protectors

 

The next plot, which is impossible for movie adaptation, has been illustrated on the picture above (you’ve seen Charles Xavier twice in this post and now you know how impossible it is, don’t you?). On their next chapter of story, still before the civil war, Mr.Fantastic was on his mission on collecting the Infinity Gems when he request the members of Illuminati to help him. At this point, Prof.X agreed to help and joined Namor and Doctor Strange to search the Mind Gem while Black Bolt, Iron Man and Mr. Fantastic were responsible to search the Reality Gem. Once the gauntlet was filled with the gems, Mr.Fantastic tried to use the gauntlet to destroy itself. His attempt was failed. Preventing the gauntlet and the gems to be misused and caused more trouble that may threaten the universe, he ultimately decided to remove the gems from the gauntlet and gave one to each member of Illuminati to safeguard the gems in secret.

World War Hulk

We are getting warmer to the civil war but before that,there is world war Hulk. It was literally Hulk versus everyone and Illuminati was included… to be honest, they somehow the one who pull the trigger to the war. I told you that it happened far before the civil war and Hulk, or Bruce Banner, was not able to control his emotion yet. Preventing the danger of Hulk, the Illuminati decided to send Hulk into the outer space by creating an android decoy which resembled Nick Fury. The android was programmed to give order to Hulk and deployed the Green Giant on a mission of disabling a dangerous satellite. Once entered by Hulk, the satellite turned into a space-craft that has been programmed to sent Doctor Bruce Banner, or the Hulk, into an unpopulated planet. Unluckily, the space-craft entered a wormhole that led Hulk into a planet called Sakaar and served as a Gladiator to please the Red King. Once he managed to find a way to come back to earth, Hulk demanded for revenge to what the earthlings had done to him.  I heard that World War Hulk will be on cinema in 2018. If so, there will be a small chance of seeing Mr.Fantastic come along with Iron Man, Doctor Strange and lack Bolt. Prof.X and Namor was absent during this arc so there will be another excuses for not including any X-Men member.

The Civil War: Illuminati Disassembled

how-will-civil-war-affect-agents-of-shield-faceoff
What the cinematic version didn’t allow us to see: Wolverine, Iron-Spider, Human Torch, Colossus, Mr.Fantastic and obviously the rest of the X-Men and Fantastic Four.  

Civil War was what finally shattered the unofficial secret organization apart. Tony Stark, as we all know from the comic or the movie, was the one who agreed with the idea of heroes registration while Captain America against this vision and decided to create Secret Avengers to against the government. During this part, I hope you start to understand that the Illuminati has been operated during the time Tony Stark was involved in the Avengers along with Captain America and the other members that you are familiar with. Going back to Illuminati, Mr.Fantastic was the one who share the same vision with Stark while Black Bolt and Doctor Strange against it. Namor was abstain considering there was no impact of the war to the Atlantic and Prof.X could not make any comment at that time. Hence, the Illuminati was disassembled as the calamity started.

The Skrull and The Hood invasion: Reassembling the team

Despite their different visions during the civil war, the group was reunited by Tony Stark as the Iron Man find out that the Skrull was planning for secret invasion to the earth. During the Hood raid, where the enemies were targeting the Infinity Gems, Black Bolt was replaced by Medusa for temporary moment. Afterwards, Captain America took custody on Black Bolt’s gem during his time away. This arc was the last of the former formation of Illuminati before the chaotic clash between the Avengers and the X-Men that change the secret group for good.

The Avengers VS X-Men

AvX
Let’s say this is very impossible to be adapted into movie for now

Well, this is another epic part yet very impossible for movie adaptation. During the clash between Avengers vs X-Men, several important events happened and I will put them on a list.

  • The clash was caused by the return of the Phoenix Force.
  • Cable showed up from the future to protect his daughter, Hope Summers from the Avengers.
  • X-Men joined the Avengers to stop Cable who revealed that the Phoenix Force was coming for his daughter.
  • Knowing the fact, the Avengers wanted to take custody on Hope but X-Men disagree.
  • The clash between them was inevitable and during the battle, Iron Man accidentally split the Phoenix into five parts which later possessed Colossus, Namor, Emma Frost, Cyclops and Magik.
  • Spider-man tricked Colossus and Magik to fight each other until the Phoenix within them left while Namor’s Phoenix Force left him not long after his raid to Wakanda.
  • Hope, after her training with Iron Fist’s master Lei-Kung, was finally able to stand up to Cyclops.
  • Frustrated, Cyclops extracted Emma Frost’s Phoenix Force and accidentally killed Charles Xavier while the professor tried to intervene.
  • Finally, Hope and Scarlet Witch (Wanda) managed to defeat Cyclops and wish away the Phoenix Force.

I realized that the list is full of spoiler. But who cares? Too many X-Men references. It’s not gonna be filmed anyway.

The Illuminati Avengers

gorilluminati1
Hank McCoy (Beast) and T’Challa (Black Panther) as the new Illuminati. Tony is talking to Black Bolt.

This is gonna be the last arc I would like to discuss because this post is getting longer everytime I stop awhile to think. The clash between Avengers and X-Men was over and another threat arose. It was Black Swan, who was captured by Black Panther during her time on Wakanda, who showed Black Panther the danger of the other universes intruding and destroying each other. Based on this insight, T’Challa (Black Panther) called the Illuminati together and joined them as a team of Avengers under Captain America. Beast (Hank McCoy) took the place of the deceased Professor X along with the infinity gem of the professor. With all infinity gems and also the gauntlet with them, Captain America tried to push back the intruding universe by using the completely filled Infinity Gauntlet but the attempt failed, shattering all the gems but the Time Gem. Captain America later objected to destroy the other universes to save theirs. An idea that was rejected by the rest of the Illuminati. They finally erased the memory of Captain America and continue working on the calamity without him.

Well, you’ve read and seen how many X-Men, Fantastic Four, even the Defenders references on this post that are highly not possible to be filmed. However, we are free to imagine if Illuminati and some of its arcs are filmed, aren’t we?

Finally, after several years, I hope this post is no longer relevant because Marvel Studios will finally bring the whole squad, including X-Men, Fantastic Four, and everyone that I am too lazy to mention, into the cinematic universe altogether. Well, we deserve at least one movie with both Avengers and X-men fighting each other or fighting together, don’t we?

 

ONE LAST QUESTION: IF MARVEL STUDIOS ALLOW US TO HAVE ONE OF THOSE PLOTS TO BE FILMED, WHICH ONE DO YOU WANT?

The Danger Room

Danger_Room_01.jpg

Are you familiar with that empty room? If you have ever watched a movie that tells you about abnormal beings living together in a massive mansion where there are school and jet inside along with bald professor on a wheel chair, then you have ever happened to see that picture. If it is still not really clear for you, here is another hint.

X-Men_Danger_Room.png

Now most of you might have recognized what Danger Room is, haven’t you? It is a huge simulation room where the mutants in X-Men practice to develop their abilities as mutants in the real battle situation. Usually there will be some senior mutants guide the younger ones during the training as you can see in the picture, there are Mystique and Beast with the young X-Men (Left to Right : Nighcrawler, Storm, Cyclops, Phoenix and Quick-Silver). The Danger Room is designed to have such super realistic sensation during the practice that you can feel the fear of dying and getting chased by The Sentinels. Now maybe I exaggerate it, but these two weeks, I think some of my professors are pushing us to the limit and I personally feels like they put us in Danger Room situation.

Never ending assignments of designing new techniques and developing some methods, daily presentations, reviews and so forth are coming endlessly. At first, it was totally normal to have one or two reports and presentations. Then I thought it would soon decreased, but once two papers’s done, there came other three out of somewhere! I am so triggered that I write another shitty twisted thought about this Danger Room analogy. Seriously, now, every time I enter the classroom, I imagine my professor as a gifted being who can read and control others’ mind and my friends and I as a noob young mutants seeking for clarity and wisdom in a room where your worst enemy will soon be summoned by the prof. The young mutants end up in a relentless regime of training that is painful yet effective. However, IT IS painful and it is not easy to satisfy the professor with our struggle.

I don’t know if either Charles Xavier, Hank McCoy or Raven Darkholme has a very high expectation that one of them find it difficult to appreciate the hard works of their disciples. Though my professors, some of them require us to think out of the skull to make them smile. Indeed, it is stressful. That’s one downs. However, I can say that with such force to accomplish many things at once, I unconsciously develop. Painfully develop.

Thus, like those young mutants in X-Men who frequently experience dying and extreme fear during simulation practice, I won’t stop though I suffer serious lack of sleep and worrying hair loss. In the end, these all will over and I will utilize what I have learnt during the Danger Room situation to make a better life for everyone. By the way, no offense, dear professor.

You Can Hire Them For Zombie Apocalypse

A friend once asked how in the world could I have my list of favorite MARVEL characters suitable to my MBTI? How could I idolize (mostly) characters with ENTP traits? I have no exact answer for this. Probably because those ENTPs share the same views as mine. However, it does not mean I ONLY like ENTPs when it comes to fictional characters. Though Wade Wilson, Tony Stark and Rocket Raccoon are my heroes, I also adore some others with various MBTI types.Here are the chosen five of non-ENTP fellows from MARVEL Universe alongside with their MBTI and my personal opinion about them.

  • Frank Castle (The Punisher) – INTJ

punisher-in-marvel-comics2

Frank was an ex-marine who got his entire family murdered in front of his face. More than it, he got a head-shot that,unfortunately, did not kill him. Since then, Frank turned into psychopathic badass who demanded revenge. I am not sure about his previous life when he was a loving husband and father, but The Punisher is an INTJ. Low tolerance, lack of emotion, hates inefficiency are several features of INTJ that you can see from this badass man-hunter. An INTJ is also original and pragmatic. You will see how Frank does not let emotional feelings interrupt his decision in doing his job terminating the targets. The only distractions for him are Dare Devil and NYPD. I am with Frank. You may kill the one who kill your loved ones, though. ‘Don’t get in my way, Red!

  • Charles Xavier (Prof. X) – ENFP

charles_xavier_earth-616

I shit you not, Charles is my favorite mutant after Wade. I mean, who does not want to control Cerebro and knows what common people do not know? If he was not shot on the spine and could use both of his leg normally, I could imagine how badass would he be. Anyway, Charles is passionate, optimistic and surprisingly care about others. At the first time he might look like an ordinary bald professor who is busy with his own experiment, but look at how he cares about the young mutants? X-Mansion is a proof of his caring, optimistic and passionate personality, giving hope to the minority to have better future. Alright, talking about Charles makes me sound old. Go on.

  • Peter Parker (Spider-Man) – INFP

tumblr_nryugmbxug1sbbfwho3_1280

Most kids’ wildest dream is getting bitten by radio-active spider and becoming Spidey. I was one of those moron kids. Thus, Pete-Parker was my childhood hero. As a kid, seeing a heroic older-but-not-too-older guy will make me day-dreaming of having a big brother. To every kid out there, imagine if Spider-man take you to school and all of your friends will drop their jaws. THAT WAS! MY DREAM! Dedicated, idealist, loyal, intensively struggle to make world as a better place are some traits of INFP in Spidey. At least before Venom turned him into somehow worse but better at the same time. Hey, maybe black-suit Spider-man is an ENTP.

  • Peter Quill (Star Lord) – ESFP

starlord

Another Peter. I envy Star Lord for he is having fun out of every task and difficult situation he encounters. He is also an excellent team-worker while I prefer to do most of the things solo. ESFP is creative and an out of the box thinker. This is why they always find fun ways to face everything even the worst situation. In some cases, especially the part of Guardian of the Galaxy movie, ESFP is an excellent peacemaker and this makes Star Lord a great leader.

  • Katherine Anne ‘Kitty’ Pryde – INFP

47_kittypryde

My mutant crush, indeed. Shared the same MBTI as Spidey, Kitty is an inter-dimensional mutant who can travel through not only concrete objects like wall but also time. Even though Kitty is not an excellent combatant, She plays important role in X-Men: Days of Future Past, though. I have described how heroic an INFP is. INFPs are usually idealist justice keeper who prefer to put douche-bags and bandits to jail rather than killing them on sight. Their kind-hearted personality suits ENTP well.

Now I am thinking of them teaming up together with Wade, Stark, and Raccoon. Though, I prefer Spidey with his symbiote suit. What’s the team name gonna be? You decide!
