The Marvel Cinematic Universe is one of the most popular franchises in the world...ever. The action-packed superhero movies draw huge crowds with their explosive fight scenes and impressive CGI. They're thrilling to watch. After all, who doesn't love to see the good guys fighting the good fight? But. What if the Avengers were real? What if their arguably destructive battles involved your car - or the crashing of a train with one of your loved ones on it? While some may argue that Amazon's The Boys kind of answers that question, we're more satisfied by the humor and imagination spawned by a tweet from @alpineswinter.
i feel like if the avengers were real we'd all really really hate them— caleb CAP 4 (@alpineswinter) April 26, 2021
The tweet, which went viral, inspired a hilarious thread in which Twitter users got real about how shitty it would be if life involved a bunch of fancy ass superheroes fighting villains at the expense of our livelihood. We've put some of the highlights in this gallery, but there's a lot more fun where they came from.
