'Avengers: Endgame' [SPOILERS] gives an Avengers stalwart the farewell he deserves
In 'Avengers: Endgame', while some sacrificed themselves to win the battle, others made sure that they gave it all to make it back to their loved ones
As the Avengers saga came to an end with 'Avengers: Endgame', we knew it was time to say goodbye to our favorite superheroes.
While some sacrificed themselves to win the battle, others made sure that they gave it all to make it back to their loved ones. Nonetheless, the movie was a mixed bag of laughter and tears.
However, the one person who got their perfect happily-ever-after was Captain America. For long, we saw him lead the gang of superheroes and never back down in the face of evil. Staying true to his name, Captain America always stood with braveness in front of the chaos and darkness that would usually come his way. Even in 'Endgame', we see him standing strong and ready to face the army of evil that Thanos brings along with him. Throughout the Marvel movies, Captain America has been a man worthy of his status and 'Endgame' acknowledges that.
After a long wait, we finally saw someone else picking up Thor's hammer in 'Endgame', and it does not come as a surprise that it was none other than Captain America himself. We have always known that only the worthy can lift the hammer. Countless people have tried their hand at picking it up but they all have failed miserably. However, even Thor did not seem surprised when he saw Captain America lift his hammer. In fact, he seems to have known it all along and welcomed the move with a smile. We all knew that this was the moment Captain America had shown that there could be no one like him.
While he fails to save his best friend Tony Star, until the very end, Captain America makes sure that he fulfills his duty to the best of his ability. And he undoubtedly does.
Unlike others who go back to their lives and their loved ones, Captain America never got a chance to live the life he wanted.
So it made total sense for him to go back in time and to his loved one. Once he's gone back in time, we see Captain America finally marry the love of his life Peggy Carter. This way, he was able to correct his past mistakes and live a life that he had always wanted. Even though he could not get his best friend back, he knew that there was one thing that he could change and that was his fate.
The movie ends with a smiling Captain America, now old but happy with the life he has lived. One could say that it was a smile that had been missing for a long time.
The Captain then retires from his position as Captain America and passes on the responsibility to Sam Wilson. In the end, we see a happy and loved Captain America, one who is ready to look forward in life.
Marvel sure did justice with his character and gave us the ending that we dearly needed.
