Last Words of MCU Characters:
The last quotes of our favorite MCU characters stayed in our minds like poetry with simple words but a deeper meaning. We always tend to cling on to our hero’s last words, for we know that we shall never hear them on the screen ever. Did you understand the message hidden behind these character’s lines? Which one echoed in your mind the most?
Groot is one of our favorite MCU characters even if his dialogues are limited to 3 words. So far only his partner, Rocket Racoon can comprehend his coded language. But surprisingly we deciphered what he meant when he said “we are Groot” at the end of Guardians of the Galaxy. He sacrificed himself to protect his team and expressed unity and love in his message.
Even though Peter Parker’s last words in Avengers: Infinity War was adlibbed by Tom Holland, the words “I don’t feel so good… I don’t wanna go…” reverberated in our minds as a hangover. It was painful to watch a teenager plead for his life who had barely seen anything in the world. But to Peter Parker, that pain was beyond emotional senses as he could literally feel himself ceasing from existence due to his Spidey-Sense.
3. Eric Killmonger
“Why, so you can just lock me up? Nah. Just bury me in the ocean… with my ancestors that jumped from the ships, ’cause they knew death… was better than bondage.”,these words throw light on the barbaric past that his ancestors fought in reality. Both and Killmonger and T’Challa shared similar traumatic experiences in life, but as one learned to avenge, the other learned to love. This is the reason why the audience liked both the protagonist and the antagonist, for both had a reason. Killmonger’s last words signify the value of death over an oppressed life.
“You will never be God” were Loki’s last words to his killer Thanos. It was an ironic moment for Loki who prided himself on being a God most of his life. His very introduction to the MCU was as the smug cosmic entity who scorned at humans and forced them to bow down to him. In the end, he died at the hands of the Mad Titan who wanted to become God.
5. The Ancient One
The Ancient One is the wisest souls in the MCU who knows more than what we or any of the heroes see. Even though her last words were merely about the snow, it had a profound meaning. She wanted to make the best of her remaining life even if it meant stretching her moment to appreciate the snow. “Death is what gives life meaning. To know your days are limited, your time short. You’d think after all this time I’d be ready. But look at me, stretching one moment out into a thousand just so I can watch the snow.”, these words prevent us from taking the beauty of life for granted.
6. Black Widow
Black Widow aka Natasha Romanoff spent half her life in the SHIELD regretting her days as a Russian assassin. Despite her endless sacrifices as an Avenger, Natasha was afraid that she could never clear off her red ledger. Therefore, jumping off the cliff to save her friends meant more to her than obtaining the Soul Stone. With her final sacrifice, she was hoping to clear off all her debts. That’s why she assured her friend Hawkeye by saying “Let me go. It’s okay”. These few words had such a heavier meaning.
7. Iron Man
When Tony Stark aka Iron Man uttered the words, “And I… am… Iron Man.” we could feel a million crackers bursting in our heart. Some were out of joy and pride that Iron Man defeated Thanos while others were painful as it was our favorite hero’s last words.
8. Yondu Udonta
Love always supersedes blood. Yondu was not Peter Quill aka Star-Lord’s birth father, but he loved him more than one. No one was aware of Yondu’s softer side until we saw him fight and sacrifice his life to save Peter. Given the situation, his last words were quite heart-breaking as he said, “He may have been your father, boy, but he wasn’t your daddy. I’m sorry I didn’t do none of it right… I’m damn lucky you’s my boy.”
9. Agent Phil Coulson
Agent Phil Coulson’s death was the moment when Avengers were formed. Even though SHIELD had gathered the superheroes, it was failing miserably to get them on the same page. All they needed was a common goal, a sense of belonging towards one another, and a common vengeance that started at Loki who killed Agent Phil Colsen. That explains his last words “It’s okay, boss. This was never going to work if they didn’t have something to…”. Can you finish his sentence?
Odin’s last words calling “Asgard is not a place… Asgard is where our people stand…” gave a new meaning to Asgard for the audience. He was trying to explain that identity or nationality doesn’t depend on boundaries but on its people and their values. This line is held extremely valuable to the Marvel Universe and its fans.
