For some, the Marvel Cinematic Universe is just the video version of the Marvel comics and for others, it is home. Fans know how the stories have their own morals to impart and how the characters are just shielded fighters but inspire millions to become real-life heroes as well. Every dialogue has a deeper connotation, and no wonder, the Avengers have had difficult pasts which made them what they are today. Although they are just comic characters, these comic characters have been written as humans and their struggles seem similar to ours, really!
The Avengers have always provided the audience with a set of lessons and thoughts that we could use in times of crisis-
Steve Rogers’ “I Could Do This All Day”

We all know how strong and brave the leader, the captain himself, Captain America is. But, nothing for him was easy during his initial days. He was a thin, shambled, scrawny looking kid who didn’t quite have the strength to beat the shit of his bullies or people who used to come at him. Once Steve was being beaten at an empty alley by a boy larger than him. Despite getting defeated over and over again, he carried on defending himself and countered him with, “I could do this all day”. If that’s not peak Captain America behavior, then we don’t know what is!
Here, we should all emphasize on his tries and how he knew winning was impossible, but he still carried on nonetheless, because winners don’t happen overnight, you need to nurture your inner soul to emerge as the winner. Captain America, for the win!
Iron Man And His Words Of Wisdom

“Heroes aren’t born. They’re built”, was what Iron Man said and we always agree. Much like Captain America, Iron Man’s lesson of perseverance and building yourself from scratch has great significance in the lives of all of us. Well apart from that, Tony Stark, always taught us to have a sense of humor, even when our world falls apart, and that somehow helps us survive!
The Incredible Hulk And His Anger Management

While many of us pay hefty fees and go for therapies to manage our anger, Hulk is one such Avenger who could give us real anger management lessons. Even if you are the calmest and most composed person on earth, each one of us has this “other guy” suppressed within us. Banner and his incredible efforts to control himself from the angry green monster does give us a great lesson about controlling ourselves at situations, where we rather not burst out!
Thor And His Immense Self-Belief

Thor has, time and again taught us how to regain the belief in the power within us. From losing his hammer to losing his shape, Thor has gone through all, and yet he retaliated every time and emerged ever more powerful than the last time. Thor is kind of a hope, of never giving up!
Captain Marvel’s “You’re Right, I’m Only Human”

The recent Captain Marvel movie definitely is noteworthy where Carol accepts how a superhero is just a human being and that identity makes her even stronger. Yes, we’re after all humans, and there’s nothing more empowering than that! However, each one of us can emerge as super humans to help others out in times of their needs. And that can happen through sheer determination.
Black Widow And Her Past

Probably, the most haunting past of any Avengers is of Black Widow. She could never let go of her past. Even during the Avengers Age of Ultron scene with Thor’s hammer, the only person who didn’t even think she could lift the hammer was Natasha, because that how unworthy she thinks she is. But, eventually Natasha taught us that our past is what makes us ready for the present and which superhero does it like her? We can only salute The Russo Brothers need to make separate movies for Romanov!
These are just a few out of all the Avengers who fight against evil to save our earth. Each and every Avenger has a lesson to teach us. They have all faced loss, pain, humiliation, sacrifice and terror. Yet, they have all overcome these negatives and fought for positivity and for greater good. Yes, we too are scrawny and scared human beings who are probably always haunted by our past or families and what not, but what’s important is how we build ourselves and move forward, just like the Avengers teach us to.
