(Welcome to The Soapbox, the space where we get loud, feisty, political, and opinionated about anything and everything. In this edition: Avengers: Endgame doesn’t honor its female characters in a way that actually carries weight.)
There’s no question that Marvel has a women problem. In the past decade and over the course of its 22 movies, only one of them was led by a woman, and one had a woman sharing the title. But the studio has been eagerly trying to make up for it in recent years, releasing Captain Marvel to critical and box office acclaim, and slowly introducing female fan favorites — some of whom would go on to get double billing in the big established movies.
As we headed into Avengers: Endgame, the Marvel Cinematic Universe was filled to the brim with strong, complex, rich female characters — some super, some not — who were on course to outshine even some of the male heroes.

But this is where the film stumbles.
Spoilers for Avengers: Endgame below.

This isn’t Larson’s fault. Nor is it the character’s fault. The problem boils down to this: Carol is so powerful, that the only solution the MCU can think of level the playing field is to sideline her. Spoilers follow.

Captain Marvel was the last film in the Marvel Cinematic Universe to hit the big screen before Avengers: Endgame kicked off the summer box office with a bang. Though the film does a solid job introducing us to Carol Danvers (Brie Larson) as the Air Force pilot turned cosmic superhero known as Captain Marvel, it’s held back slightly by feeling like a set-up for her character to make a big impact in Avengers: Endgame. Thankfully, the folks at How It Should Have Ended figured out how to take care of this much more quickly.
