The final battle in Avengers: Endgame was an epic, complex whirlwind of the Marvel Cinematic Universe’s beloved characters facing off against Thanos, the greatest threat they had ever known. It’s not the kind of scene anyone would think to look for in the real world, but there are battles to be fought here, too.
Artist BossLogic made just that point with his latest artwork, which reimagines Thanos as the coronavirus (COVID-19) pandemic, and the Avengers as the medical professionals working to defeat it.
Steve Rogers is in the foreground of the defense line, but instead of a captain he’s now Doctor America, with the iconic star on his helmet replaced with a red cross. Farther back, characters such as Thor and the Hulk are gathered, decked out in scrubs and masks.
The art was posted to BossLogic’s Instagram in two installments, along with the text “Thank you, for then, for now and for everything that has yet to come.” He also added the hashtags #nohandshakes and #WashYourHands as a reminder of what everyone can do to help stop the spread of coronavirus.
The message is clear: the medical professionals and healthcare workers who are saving lives and caring for the sick are the heroes in this time of the pandemic.
Directed by Joe and Anthony Russo, Avengers: Endgame stars Robert Downey Jr. as Iron Man, Chris Evans as Captain America, Mark Ruffalo as Bruce Banner, Chris Hemsworth as Thor, Scarlett Johansson as Black Widow, Jeremy Renner as Hawkeye, Brie Larson as Captain Marvel, Paul Rudd as Ant-Man, Don Cheadle as War Machine, Karen Gillan as Nebula, Danai Gurira as Okoye and Bradley Cooper as Rocket, with Gwyneth Paltrow Pepper Potts, Jon Favreau as Happy Hogan, Benedict Wong as Wong, Tessa Thompson as Valkyrie and Josh Brolin as Thanos.
