Malekith The Accursed’s Importance
Malekith’s relevance was slowly fading into obscurity until his role as the main villain in Thor: The Dark World. Writer Jason Aaron gave Malekith more attention in the Thor: God of Thunder series, expanding on the Dark Elf’s storyline. He was instrumental in Thor losing his arm, as well as causing a war between all nine realms.
Phil Coulson became such a likable character in the movies that ABC brought him back for the Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D TV series, despite perishing in Avengers. The character even made the rare crossover from film to page, making his comicbook debut in 2012.. Unfortunately, Phil was killed off in the comics by Deadpool, who was under the command of Hydra’s Steve Rogers.
Avengers, Not Just Mutants: Scarlet Witch And Quicksilver
Scarlet Witch and Quicksilver have always been a curious case in comicbooks, with fans split over whether they were Avengers or X-Men characters. Their origins as twin siblings and Magneto’s offspring caused the division of ownership between Disney and 21st Century Fox, which altered storyline elements. Now, the twins have no relation to Magneto; rather, they were once human beings who were experimented on by the High Evolutionary.
The Arc Reactor in Tony Stark’s chest has been a source of power/life for both the hero and his Iron Man armor. Matt Fraction’s comicbook run in 2008’s Invincible Iron Man, influenced in part by the MCU films, changed the name of Stark’s life force to the Repulsor, after Iron Man’s trademark laser blasts.
Hawkeye’s New Costume
Hawkeye (Clint Barton) once had a look that differed from the average superhero wardrobe. After Jeremy Renner’s rendition in the Avengers movies, the design was toned down for the comicbooks in Matt Fraction and David Aja’s 2012 run. The comicbook costume resembles the more realistic one featured in the film.
