Despite my Marvel affinity, I really only know the Avengers in passing, and then mostly through the new series of movies and some decidedly poor Marvel cross over events (yeah I’m looking at you, AvX). As much as I want to get the girls into X-Men, my first love, I figure this is a good time for all of us to meet The Avengers.
We watched Captain America: The First Avenger this weekend. I had the pride and honour of explaining the scene with the grenade and why Steve Rogers is -so much better than Superman- the perfect man for the job. They decided they wanted to see all the other movies. Thor will probably be up next, but Panda really wants to see the Hulk movie to learn about his “spiriment” that turned Bruce Banner into the Hulk. This is a dilemma of course because I’m not sure which of the Hulk movies to show her. I’m trying to distract her till the reboot. We figure Thor will be up next, but in the mean time, we’ll get started on our Earth’s Mightiest Heroes marathon.
