About me

About Me

I have been a major fan of the MCU ever since the first Iron Man movie came out in theaters. At first I thought this was just a single movie that would not have a connecting story. But then there was Iron Man 2, Iron Man 3, The Avengers, and it turned out to be an expansive story linking so many heroes together. Not only was I interested in the movies, but I would follow the wikia for the characters and just try to get a good understanding of all the concepts that encompassed the MCU.
