Plots in MCU With Explanation:
Yes, you read it right. One of the biggest and richest franchises of today has been ruined by fans. As MCU fans we have stayed hooked on to the movies for 10 years, still trying to uncover some mysteries. Apart from laughing, crying, and sitting on the edge of our seats during the action scenes, we have scratched our heads plenty of times to comprehend the plot. What if we discount the complicated and intense scripts to non-sense? Once the exciting part gets over and the adrenaline rush goes down, it’s hilarious to undermine the story. These mind-blowing stories don’t sound quite right when we recite them. We are not questioning the awesome studio that we ourselves worship. But it’s often fun to think of the script from another angle. Here are 23 plots in the MCU which we and the fans have tried to describe in the worst way possible. Can you think of an even worse explanation of these Marvel movies?
1. Thor: Ragnarok

2. Captain Marvel
An ex-pilot fights for a team until her memory returns and she switches sides to join her former enemies.
3. Spider-Man: Far From Home
A government agent with the latest tech and gadgets diverts a school trip to red alert zones so a teenage boy can help him out.

8. Captain America: The First Avenger
This is a popular one that we are sure you have heard in many places. The noble hero of America, Captain America is simply a man on “steroids” who is given a Frisbee to throw at his enemies.
9. Iron Man
If we have to describe Iron Man poorly, it simply boils down to a billionaire making new decisions for his company and new clothes for himself after escaping his captivity.

10. Iron Man 2
Iron Man 2 is nothing if not about two billionaires flaunting their money at each other. While they are blinded by their vanity, a Russian mechanical engineer, also a cybercriminal, by the way, is busy with his own vengeance.
11. The Incredible Hulk
The mere thought of Hulk simply reminds us of a giant angry man who mostly forgets his friends and foes after turning green. This movie was no different an angry man smashed things around and fought with his girlfriend’s disapproving father.

As rightly put by a fan on Redditor u/AlbionPCJ, GOTG can be explained as “A bunch of weirdos try to start fight with former Blue Man Group member.”

The only explanation that comes to our minds is rightly put into words by u/jmoney777, “Man gets into a car accident and gets nerve damage in his hands. He searches for a cure and ends up becoming a wizard.”
