@tethadam: Doesn't have to be very high. Loki can have more than just illusion magic and show him 1v4 the Avengers instead of having trouble with cap.
Thanos can have DD level of strength. Thor, Hulk and other high tiers can scale based on that. If FOX and DCEU, both of which have far lower budget for their films can do that, I don't see why the MCU can't.
Definitely the comics. I guess because I watch the movies because of the comics, not the other way around. Most mainstream fans watch the movies first or only the movies, which is fine, but IMO the movies are not nearly as cool as the comics. I still enjoy them though.
Kind of both, I’d be lying if I said I read comics before watching the movies. My family and friends love the movies but will never get into comics so I guess I slightly get more hyped for the movies. Still a bad taste in my mouth after how excited I was for secret empire but ultimately let down
MCU for the time being. Marvel comics constant events and marketing gimmicks threw me off and then you have writers taking center stage whose quality of writing I can find with the average fanfiction writer(and the average is really low woth fanfiction writers) doesn't help when they cry like thin-skinned fanfction writers over any criticism too.
I'm sure there will be books and entire periods of writing that get me excited for the marvel comics again in the future, but for the time being I'll stick to the MCU and check out the occassional book that looks interesting in the solicitations.
The MCU gets me more excited in the moment--because, of course, movies are designed to do that--but I get more enjoyment out of Marvel Comics overall. However, most of my enjoyment comes from the older stuff, as Marvel's latest has been... not good. I can't even nail down what it is that is going so wrong with them. At times it feels like they're trying to change and grow too quickly, while other times it feels like they're just trying to step back. I think at its core it is that everything Marvel does nowadays is all flashy short-term stuff. Events with no connectivity and character arcs with no point. I miss the days of enormous year-spanning sagas like Civil War/Initiative/Secret Invasion/Dark Reign, or House of M/Decimation/Messiah Complex/Utopia. Marvel's no longer writing to produce good stories; now they're writing to draw in moviegoers.
