I just realized that Mantis and Steve Rogers hooked up.
LoL! When did they even meet?
Yeah, maybe people are reading to much into that moment. Mantis was blipped on Titan, she only ever got to Earth and could possibly have met Cap at the end of Endgame, and soon after Steve went back in time. At most, they may have shared a short conversation. Mantis calling his name when she sees that costumed guy at the Chinese Theater is just another instant of her over-enthusiasm, and a sign of how few people she ever met in her lifetime due to living on Ego. That isn't a complaint, it's part of her charm, it's just that no, she and Cap were not revealed to be close friends or anything.
I mostly agree, but I think there was probably a fair span of time between the climax of Endgame and Tony's funeral, with everyone getting together to compare notes and debrief and just recover from the big fight. There could've been weeks between them.
And Steve was a gregarious guy, a natural leader. I'm sure he made an effort to spend some time with everyone who fought with him in the final battle, going around to thank them for their service and get to know them a little and reminisce about the people they lost. I'm sure almost everyone ended up thinking of Steve as a friend by the end of it.
I laughed a little too hard at the "I can't believe I took a picture with God of War!" part
Yes, middle aged people don't play computer games or read comics.
Eh, God of War came out in 2005. Seventeen years ago. A college kid who played it would be pushing forty.
My mom's in her '60s and she knows who Kratos is, and I think she even played the first one or two God of War games when they came out.
Mid-40s to be precise
I'm 47 and a big gamer ( board/video/tabletop), so that doesn't hold water anymore since we grew up with videogames and pop culture and saw the hole rise of consoles from Nintendo, Sony and Microsoft ( and some own all of them).
And the only reason i don't read mainstream ( DC/Marvel) anymore is that they are repetetive and the stories are played out in my opinion.
Every now and then though i do pick one up if it comes highly recommended and is unique enough to catch my interest - i'm thinking of taking on Sandman since i really liked the Netflix show.
I've never even heard of God of War, though I'm not a game. When I heard that line in the special, I got the intention that the tourist was mistaking Drax for someone else, but I didn't know who. (I think maybe I assumed it was Thor, but of course he's the god of thunder. The Norse god of war would be either Odin or Tyr.)
James Gunn playlist for the special
Oh, yes, do that. It's a brilliant comic.
Did they start college late?
21 year old in 2005 would be 38 in 2022. 18-21 are college years. Even an 18 year old would be in their mid thirties.
Ah, but is it worse than that other oft-told tale o' holiday cringe, 1978's "The Star Wars Holiday Special"?
Nothing is worse than the Star Wars Special, but this one ain't good either ( in my opinion).
There is a God of War reboot series that has 2 games right now as well.
