The Avengers have been busy over the past 5 years in the MCU. Ever since the events of Infinity War, the Avengers have tried to console their grief through the others. It is evident that the loss of their loved ones really did affect their stand on their calling themselves heroes. So, the Avengers looked more into the others for that moral support. Evidently, it was the three hour long journey in Endgame that gave us an impression into their relationship. We saw how each Avenger interacted and played their tole into saving the world. Infinity War taught us a lot about the differences since Civil War; and Endgame gave us that union we’ve been waiting for.
The Sokovia Accords did partially destroy the team. Their fight in Germany showed how they were willing to take a stand. Captain America didn’t want the accords because it violated his freedom to fight; Iron Man wanted them to sign it because he wanted them to take responsibility. Wanda’s actions shook the world, but Cap was willing to lay it down for her. The spiraled out into a series of internal fights orchestrated by Zemo. His role in Falcon and The Winter Soldier proved his point in creating that rift; he saw the Avengers’ ego shape who they were. Hence, he took the chance to use the Avengers to break the Avengers.
Infinity War And Endgame gave us enough lessons on the Avengers and how they work. The point of it being that they don’t learn from their mistakes. It took 5 years for them to get out of that rift; and a death to unite their mission. Thanos was key to the make or break of the Avengers. If that ego still lurked in them; it would have been different in Endgame.
It’s clear that the Avengers didn’t learn anything from their defeat by Thanos played by Josh Brolin in Avengers: Infinity War. Phase 4 of the MCU proves this. After the events of the Infinity Saga came to an end in Avengers: Endgame, Marvel Studios has been rebuilding its brand. When projects are making sequels and origin stories, Earth’s Mightiest Heroes will have to come back together to fight a new threat. Unfortunately, because of where they are now, it was more difficult to get them all together this time.
In 2012, the Avengers first came together as a team for the Battle of New York. Since then, the Avengers have become the best superhero team in the MCU. Marvel’s first team had six members. By the time they made Avengers: Age of Ultron, they had added Wanda Maximoff, War Machine, Falcon, and Vision to the group. As a result, Iron Man and Captain America didn’t fully reunite until Avengers: Endgame, which meant that they first fought Thanos alone.
In Infinity War, Bruce kept on asking Tony to make that call to Steve. Tony really was hesitant because he knew what had happened; but Bruce didn’t. Tony took it to the next stage by doing it himself. When Doctor Strange was taken by Ebony Maw, Spiderman and Tony went behind the donut-shaped ship to save Strange.
While on Eart, Cap’s side took all the liberty to assemble their war on Wakanda and protect the stone on Vision’s head for which Thanos was coming. They didn’t care about Tony either.
When they lost to the Mad Titan when they were in Avengers: Infinity War, and a lot of people have talked about it. Fans have a lot of different ideas about why the team didn’t stop the snap. Several people think that Star Lord’s meltdown on Titan is to blame for their failure. Chris Hemsworth, on the other hand, thinks that his attitude led to their failure. When the Avengers beat Thanos, it’s possible that they didn’t work together to fight him.
Endgame brought the Avengers together; even though Tony spoke his heart out after being in space at the fear of death. Cap and the others saw his suffering and his loss of Peter was evident. The Avengers really saw how they failed and tried to see all aspects of their failure. They tried to come out of this initially by killing Thanos. Five years later, Tony has moved on and the Avengers need redemption. Through various methods of meaning, the Avengers unite and work together. This was their action towards success. Their battles across timelines proved they were ready to work together. Eventually, through Tony, everything changed and they found meaning in this name ‘The Avengers’.
They don’t seem to have learned anything from this painful experience, as the Avengers are all over the place in Phase 4. If you look at WandaVision, The Falcon and the Winter Soldier, and even Hawkeye and Spider-Man: No Way Home, it doesn’t look like all the remaining Avengers are talking to each other. In other words, some people would have been seen in public incidents in the projects above. Instead, only the heroes who were in the stories had to deal with them.
They show in the end credits that some heroes are still in touch with each other. This is because Shang-Chi and The Legend of the Ten Rings have a post-credits scene. Besides, Brie Larson and Bruce Banner don’t work at Avengers HQ, but in their own labs. This suggests that the Avengers don’t have a good system for how they work together or even how they work together. Avengers: Endgame wrecked the team’s Upper State headquarters, but it could have been fixed by now.
No matter who isn’t there anymore, it’s safe to say that the facility can be used by the rest of the Avengers. As a matter of fact, Iron Man would have wanted that because he cared so much about keeping Earth safe, especially now that Morgan was in it. But now, everyone is busy with their own problems. This is fine, but at the very least, the Avengers should have kept everyone in the loop, so it’s easy to mobilize if another threat like Thanos comes along.
Perhaps the biggest problem with setting up a new order is that it’s not clear who should lead the Avengers. Both Iron Man and Captain America are no longer in the MCU. Nick Fury is working with the Skrulls to fight other bad shapeshifters. It’s a shame that there wasn’t a proper meeting to talk about how the team would work in the future. In Avengers: Infinity War, Earth was at its most vulnerable point, and now it could be more vulnerable with the likes of Kang.
