The Avengers

The Avengers

All of America's favorite superheroes join together to fight the forces of evil! It can be really confusing to people who don't know about superheroes, so let me refresh your memory about this stellar cast.

Captain America, a brilliant politician who can elect anyone to any office with his democracy powers.

The Hulk, a shapeshifter of sorts. He can imitate all the other superheroes, sort of like in “Talented Mr. Ripley,” or Mystique from X-Men. It sometimes gets really confusing in this movie trying to tell who is or isn't The Hulk. I had to keep asking the guy next to me, but he didn't know either. Or else he just didn't want to tell me.

Scarlett Johansson, with the powers of magic. Imagine Gandalf, but without a beard, and twice as powerful.

Ironman, using his powers over iron to put his enemies in chains. Pretty much Magneto from X-Men, but without a beard, and twice as powerful.

Batman, a hero who can presumably talk to bats (although this is often debated by hardcore fans).

Samuel L. Jackson, telepathy and telekinetic stuff. He can fly, but only when nobody is looking at him.

4 out of 5 stars.
