Avengers and Philosophy

Avengers and Philosophy

Reyna Shellhart and Will Nelson

Everyone has heard of the Avengers and if you haven’t then you obviously live under a rock, because it’s only the best superhero comic/movie on earth. And if you’ve read the comics or seen the end of Avengers 2: Age of Ultron then you also know about the Avengers Academy. Within the academy is the Superhuman Ethics Class, and if you ask me, the most obvious teachers for Superhuman Ethics Class would be Captain America, Iron Man, and Thor, also known as “Avengers Prime”, and not Hank Pym or Tigra. This reasoning comes from the fact that while each of these three classic heroes exemplifies his particular moral compass in his solo adventures, it is through their interactions—especially their conflicts—within the Avengers that they best illustrate their different ethical approaches. We will begin by addressing these interactions and conflicts and how they emphasize the characters' moral systems.

We will end by talking about the philosophy of being good by relating it to the successor of Sheild, H.A.M.M.E.R. We will also discuss the importance of the phrase "Is it necessary to be good, or is it enough to appear to be good?" And how Plato and the Ancient Greeks are related to the Avengers and the Dark Avengers.
