bagheera_san: (Female Loki)
I'm the last person to have thoughts on Avengers, I guess, but I saw it last week and I keep writing bits of this post in my head.

Before we went to see this movie I had a conversation with some of my friends about who my favourite superhero (or my favourite superhero movie) is (because I'm probably the one with the biggest interest in superheroes) and I had a hard time answering. In the end, my answers were: the X-Men, or or the Justice League or I dunno. One of the guys said, "So what you really like is superhero teams." I should have said, "I'm a roleplayer, of course what I like best is teams," but of course you only come up with the best replies later. But yeah, I like superhero teams. And the one thing I like better than an origin story is a "getting the team together" story.

And one of the things that struck me about "Avengers" is that instead of taking away from the many, many characters it added something to nearly all of them - it made them better and cooler and funnier than they were on their own.
