what order should you watch all the Marvel Cinematic Universe movies?

The best way would be to watch them in order of their release date. The films in the Marvel Cinematic Universe have released in three phases. Which order did you watch the movies in?

Phase 1: Avengers Assembled

The Avengers Initiative (a.k.a Phase 1) was a secret project created by S.H.I.E.L.D. to create the Avengers, a collection of the most able individuals to defend Earth from imminent global threats; these individuals functioning as a response team to said threats which are too great for the forces of mankind to handle.

The Initiative was scrapped by the World Security Council after the alien incursion in New Mexico in favor of a weapons development program known as Phase 2. It was eventually reactivated in 2012 during the Chitauri Invasion.

Phase 2: Age Of Ultron

Phase 2” was part of a plan initiated by S.H.I.E.L.D. after the alien incursion in New Mexico to create weapons of mass destruction using the Tesseract.

In response to the events in New Mexico and the revelation of alien worlds and powers beyond our own, the World Security Council scrapped the Avengers Initiative in favor of a more practical approach– the development of weapons powered by the alien Tesseract.

With public opinion of superheroes becoming increasingly divided, the Avengers become fragmented. In the midst of the Avengers’ turmoils, a number of new characters are introduced, such as Doctor Strange, Black Panther, Mantis, Spider-Man, Valkyrie, and Captain Marvel. Thanos‘ plot to collect all of the Infinity Stones, which began late in Phase One, is drawn to a close in this saga.

The Unworthy Thor vs. Black Swan, Proxima Midnight and The Collector (The Unworthy Thor)

Ahh it feels good to be posting about The Odinson once again. Thor and Beta Ray Bill are my two favorite characters in the Marvel Universe and I’m glad they are reunited in The Unworthy Thor. For those who haven’t been following, The Unworthy Thor picks up after the death of The Watcher and the events of Secret Wars 3. Thor was rendered “unworthy” by a yet-still-undisclosed whisper from Nick Fury. Thor dropped the mystic hammer Mjolnir on the Moon and was unable to pick it up. However Jane Foster, who was dying from cancer, was able to pick up the sacred weapon thus becoming the female version of The Mighty Thor. Battling with his axe Jarnbjorn and trusty war-goats Toothgnasher and Toothgrinder against the rock troll Ulik on the moon, the Odinson receives a tip from a mysterious stranger known as The Unseen that “another” Mjolnir is present in this dimension.

This run marks the return of Olivier Coipel to the series who in my opinion is one of the best artists working today and my favorite Thor artist since Walt Simonson. If you haven’t already, do yourself a favor and pick up his run of Thor (2010) with writer J. Michael Stracznski. (and Spider-Verse, and AvX) The writer is Jason Aaron who wrote, X-Men Schism, Avengers vs. X-Men (Co-written with Brian Michael Bendis) and one of my all-time favorite Wolverine one-shots; The Man in the Pit. The Unworthy Thor is definitely worth your time.

The Story so far…

On the day Thor Odinson learned a long-kept secret stolen from The Watcher, he dropped the mystic hammer Mjolnir to the surface of the moon. Try as he might, Thor could not lift his once-faithful weapon. Unable to possess the power of his birthright, the thunder god relinquished the name of Thor and now simply calls himself Odinson. Now he searches for redemption, but until he finds it, he will remain….

The Unworthy Thor

When the being known as The Unseen alerted him to the existence of another hammer on old Asgard, Odinson raced to the ruins of his former home, but found the entire realm missing. Fortunately his old friend, Beta Ray Bill knew who had stolen it: The Collector. Outmatched, the pair were captured and imprisoned.

But The Collector isn’t the only one after the hammer. Aided by a mysterious ally, the imprisoned Thanos unleashed his lackeys – Black Swan and Proxima Midnight – on The Collectors ship. Meanwhile, Odinson and Beta Ray Bill broke out and freed the murderous Hel-Hound Thori and Odinson’s trusty steed Toothgnasher.

After mistakenly targeting Stormbreaker, Beta Ray Bill’s hammer, Thanos’ servants confronted The Collector and battled for the possession of the Ultimate Thor’s hammer. But Odinson and his friends are coming for them…

Thor was on the planet Pangoria when this happened, and was told the issues at stake were “too great for even an immortal to grasp”.

Arishem is the leader of all Four Celestial Hosts on Earth as well as Fourth Host on the planet called Pangoria and a Fifth Host on an unnamed planet in a distant galaxy. He is also the leader among the delegation of Celestials who waged war on the Watchers in an unknown galaxy. He was one of two Celestials who had the right and ability to judge which planet’s civilization would live and which would die.

The Celestials are a species of extremely powerful extra-terrestrial cosmic beings. The alien race influenced key events in human history for mysterious and unclear reasons. They were responsible for key human evolutionary events, such as the genetic-offshoot races the Eternals and the Deviants as well as the emergence of super-humans both through the inclusion of the “X” gene and apparently humanity’s ability to mutate benificially as in Bruce Banner not dying of radiation poisoning when exposed to the gamma bomb,and instead becoming the Hulk- for example

A Celestial”like” progenitor was present at the beginning of all things along with the naicent Watchers, The “Elder Gods”,the two cosmic beings kept in the Kyln by Galactus until their release during the Anhillation Wave’s first invasion from the Negative Zone.Template:Issue Needed

It was speculated by Reptyl that the Celestials may be the cause of the widespread of mammalians in the evolution of life on many quadrants of the cosmos.

It is believed that rhe Celestials can be credited with indirectly (through the Eternals) influencing and aiding the development of many ancient advanced civilizations such as the Aztecs, The Maya, The Incas, The Atlanteans and many more

At the beginning of time, the Celestials were an incredibly abundant species. There were “as many as the stars themselves.” However, during the conflict known as the Celestial War in which the Aspirants waged war against these cosmic beings for dominion of all existence, the Godkiller Armor was created. A weapon of such power the Aspirants used to annihilate the Celestials. However, in the end, the Aspirants lost the war and were crushed by the remaining Celestials. This information however comes only from a malfunctioning Rigelian Recorder android that, besides exhibiting genocidal opinions (and acts) exhibited more than a few historical “opinions” it stated as fact.
The Celestials resemble massive apparently male-or sexless armor-clad humanoids of enormous size, with most of them standing two thousand feet (600 meters) in height and some even larger (Exitar stands over 20,000 feet high).

Their agenda is unknown. They were responsible for the creation of two offshoots of humanity — the Eternals and the Deviants — on Earth one million years ago. However, through Celestial experimentation, mainline humanity retained the greatest potential for superhuman abilities.Template:See History above.The Celestials conducted similar experiments on many other species, including the Skrulls, whose main and Eternal branches were soon supplanted by the Deviant, shape-shifting branch of that race.

The exact purpose of the Celestials’ genetic manipulation is unknown.Repetedly returning to each world, the races in question are evaluated over a 50 Earth-year period and finally Should an experimented race “fail” by the Celestials’ standards, Arishem the Judge arrived on the target world to herald the coming of Exitar the Exterminator, a Celestial ten times his height that “purifies” the offending world and race by destroying its non-life-affirming elements. Thor was on the planet Pangoria when this happened, and was told the issues at stake were “too great for even an immortal to grasp”.

Due to their imposing presence, all-concealing armor, and seeming indifference/omnipotence to those whom they judge, the Celestials have acquired the sobriquet of “Space Gods” used by many star-faring races. On their last evaluatory visit to Earth-616 in the Fourth Host, the Celestials wiped all memory of their existence from most of humanity. The only entities remaining aware of the Celestials’ existence were the Asgardians, who actively opposed the Celestials’ unrevealed motives; the other pantheons; and Earth’s Eternals and Deviants. In modern times, however, with the rise of superhumans, many superheroes rediscovered the existence of the Celestials.

DC vs. Marvel Comics (issues #2–3 titled Marvel Comics vs. DC) was a comic book limited series crossover published by DC Comics (Detective Comics) and Marvel Comics from April to May 1996. The series was written by Ron Marz and Peter David, with art by Dan Jurgens and Claudio Castellini.

Two godly brothers who personify the DC and Marvel Universes become aware of the other’s existence, and challenge one another to a series of duels involving each universe’s respective superheroes. The losing universe would cease to exist. The story had an “out of universe” component in that, although there were eleven primary battles, five outcomes were determined by fan vote.

The six preliminary battles were:

  1. Aquaman (DC) vs. Namor (Marvel).
  2. Elektra (Marvel) vs. Catwoman (DC).
  3. Flash (DC) vs. Quicksilver (Marvel).
  4. Robin (DC) vs. Jubilee (Marvel).
  5. Silver Surfer (Marvel) vs. Green Lantern (DC).
  6. Thor (Marvel) vs. Captain Marvel (DC).

There were five battles in which the outcomes were determined by the votes of fans:

  1. Superman (DC) vs. Hulk (Marvel).
  2. Spider-Man (Marvel) vs. Superboy (DC).
  3. Batman (DC) vs. Captain America (Marvel).
  4. Wolverine (Marvel) vs. Lobo (DC).
  5. Wonder Woman (DC) vs. Storm (Marvel Comics) (Marvel).

Each side attained three victories in the preliminary battles and five battles were decided by fan vote, of which Marvel came out ahead with 3 wins to DC’s 2.

However, the storyline does not show one side as being victorious. As part of a last-ditch effort to save their worlds, the Spectre and the Living Tribunal were able to briefly force the “brothers” to resolve the situation by temporarily creating a new universe, called the Amalgam Universe, which is occupied by merged versions of many of the heroes (such as Dark Claw, a merging of the characters Batman and Wolverine).

An inter-dimensional character called Access eventually managed to restore the universes to their normal state with the aid of Batman and Captain America. The presence of the two heroes (essentially serving as the brothers in miniature, each being unique among their peers) forced the brothers to recognize how petty their disagreement truly was.
