Heimdall Is The Unsung Hero of ‘Avengers: Infinity War’

I still haven’t gotten over the fact that Avengers: Infinity War was such an amazing movie. After my most recent viewing I realized something that was rather obvious but I didn’t think of until now. If it weren’t for Heimdall sending Hulk to Doctor Strange things would’ve been a LOT worse.

Tony Stark would’ve been hanging out with Pepper completely oblivious to the fact that Thanos would be arriving to end life as he knew it.

Bruce Banner wouldn’t have called Captain America which means he and his friends wouldn’t have saved Vision and Wanda from the Thanos’s minions which means that Wanda Maximoff would’ve probably perished and Vision’s stone would’ve been taken then.

And Doctor Strange would’ve still been captured by The Maw but he wouldn’t have had Iron Man and Spider-Man to rescue him which means…well, it wouldn’t have been pretty.

All in all, if you think Avengers: Infinity War is depressing without Heimdall’s aid at the beginning of the movie things could’ve been a LOT worse.

I thank you for reading my simple observation and I hope you have a great day.

My Five Favorite Marvel Sidekicks

While there are nearly two dozen superheroes saving the world time and time again in the MCU from life threatening villains sometimes they need help from their not-so-super, or sometimes kind of super, sidekicks to get the job done. So, in honor of these lesser advertised heroes, I’m dedicating a post to these characters who have brought me so much joy over the years.

I remember when I watched Thor: Ragnarok for the first time Heimdall was my favorite character from Thor’s world after seeing the movie. His eyes were strange and he was so cool looking as he stood as guard of the Bifrost (I think that’s what he was guarding.) Throughout the Thor franchise his awesome never particularly dwindled and his involvement in Thor: Ragnarok only helped increase his coolness. Unfortunately he was killed at the very beginning of Avengers: Infinity War so it’s a good chance we’ll never see him again but he was definitely an awesome compatriot of Thor’s while he lasted.
