Call me a little behind in the times, but something just occured to me.
In every single Avengers related movie, the hero and the villain are exactly the same.
- Iron Man faces off against his fellow weapons developer in a juiced up Iron Man suit.
- The Incredible Hulk goes head to head with the freshly injected rage monster Abomination in the streets of Harlem.
- Thor, a demigod from Asgard, battles his brother Loki, a demigod from Asgard.
- Captain America, the American Super Soldier, fights to take down the Red Skull, the Nazi Super Soldier.
Even in Iron Man 2, Tony Stark’s nemesis is a crazy Russian in a suit powered by an Arc Reactor.
Having a villain that’s just as powerful as the hero does make things interesting. It makes it kind of more of a “good vs. evil” thing than a “my powers vs. your powers” thing. That might be why General Zod is my favorite Superman villain. He’s kind of like Loki - an all powerful being from another world who craves to rule. Yet comes comes from the same world as one of Earth’s greatest heros.
“Kneel before Zod!” - General Zod in Superman II
“Kneel before me. KNEEL!”- Loki in Marvel’s The Avengers
- Random phone number: Heather is not allowed in this house.

- Me: I'm just kidding, you got the wrong number. Good luck, though!
