Apropos of nicole's Katie McHugh profile, Lebowski Thor parodies the alt-right's Aryan-pagan fetishism by displaying its central icon as the doughy, navel-gazing, deluded loser reality of alt-right chuds. The movie further clowns on them by letting the people-before-politics Captain America wield Mjolnir.
Also, triply clowns them by ceding the throne to a mixed race woman.

Nebula and Gamora were the ones who colluded with Thanos. Why aren't they under investigation?

WIZARD HUNT!!!!!

Season 1 only, though. Season 2 was ... not great.

Still better than the other Defenders.

The Punisher storyline in Daredevil Season 2, and pretty much all of Daredevil Season 3, were also better than JJ Season 2.

YMMV
I can't speak to season 3 because I stopped watching after season 2 because the show was all suck. The Punisher storyline may have been the best part of season 2 but it was still suck.

Most of the Marvel Netflix series had awesome first seasons. Most of them declined in their second seasons. Jessica Jones had a truly epic first season, and a second season that was...well, not painful to watch, but decidedly meh.

And their big swan song for Captain America completely fucked the consistency of their time travel. If he could reenter life in his own timeline and still be there, they could have just killed Thanos before the snap and been done with it.
Since it's impossible to actually do a time travel plot that makes sense, I prefer time travel plots that only violate their rules for nice character moments instead of world-saving plot twists.

Really enjoyed the Bad Bitches lineup during the epic final battle.
Oh man, I hated that. At first it was awesome when it was a half-dozen major characters, then they had every single female fighter in it, and it was gratuitous and nonsensical. How did they all get there from every corner of the battlefield? It was pandering and a fuck you to DC, and it really took me out of the movie.
It was a blatantly obvious pandering moment, but if I complain about that outside of this forum I'll either be in some icky company or I'll be pissing off some otherwise-reasonable friends. So I'm just leaving it alone.
mrs lunch hated that part because it basically put a bell on how awful the MCU has been with female characters, and pints out how Wonder Woman was the only good female superhero movie. (We didn’t get to see Captain Marvel before Endgame though)

So if you want to criticize it you can always criticize it for being an insufficient apology for their past misogyny and then slip in the plot convenience playhouse aspect to show that it was calculated and not earned.

Dark Phoenix was okay but supremely forgettable. It would have been better if the screentime they wasted on the aliens angle was devoted to the family dynamics that ended up being the real focus anyway. B+ Cyclops action.
