Game of Thrones creator, George RR Martin, made an interesting point about the Marvel Cinematic Universe. He pointed out that all the villains in the Marvel Universe have the same power as the heroes. Let’s recap:
Iron Man vs. Iron Monger: both men in robot suits
Hulk vs. Abomination: both muscular monsters
Iron Man vs. Whiplash: again, both robot suits, though Whiplash had his whips
Thor vs. Loki: both gods
Captain America vs. Red Skull: both creations of the Super Soldier Serum.
Captain America vs. Winter Soldier: I think the Winter Soldier was another product of the Super Soldier Serum, but they’re both soldiers experimented on with super human strength.
Ant-Man vs. Yellow Jacket: both men in shrinking suits.
See a pattern here?
Not that I’m saying they’re bad movies, they’re great movies, I just think they need to make more villains who don’t have the same powers as the hero.
