Imagination Connoisseur known as “Myle” asks a very straightforward question – what do ordinary people who live on Earth in the MCU think about all the events and characters depicted in the movies and streaming shows?
Who’s paying to clean up this mess?
Hello Rob, and goof people of awesome PGS!
Many times, you have asked how the ordinary people of MCU handle those mind-blowing events that happen in these stories. Well, how I see it, it’s like we do.
In their world, myths are just real but also they witness them in their life. (And I think you know this cause you’ve red Marvel Saga – maybe you just forget that sometimes.)
Some believe it’s all part of God’s great plan, some think secret societies are behind everything, while some say it’s the ancient aliens. These things happen and every individual goes their own unique way.
In their world, like our own, not every single professor with over 150 IQ points goes to meetings at Xavier Institute. It would be too expensive for that lady in Bern, Switzerland to buy an airplane ticket every weekend to do that.
In the same way, a young dude in Calcutta couldn’t start going out at night to fight crime, even though he has this super-strength, because he can’t sew himself a cool suit and also his mom needs all the help and time he can spare for taking care of their family business.
MCU tells the stories of a few hand-picked superheroes while the rest of the people on the planet do whatever they do.
What we might consider extraordinary might be more common and could get on people’s nerves. Like, for example: “Jimmy says it’s all just fake news and a set-up when his uncle’s boss was busted by Spiderman.”
Or, “I can’t put stuff in one of my drawers ’cause there’s this weird dimensional portal, but I called my local wizard and he’s coming next week to close it. I hate that drawer. It’s the second time I’ve lost my favorite t-shirt. Thanks, Dormammu.”
Well, that’s all now. All the best!
And just like you say, everyone has a story to tell that you haven’t yet heard and all you have to do is listen.
Peace & Love.
