What a difference a year makes.
When Marvel's Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. premiered last fall, the Marvel Universe had yet to be rocked by the fact that the secret agency had been infiltrated by spies – a shocker not revealed until the blockbuster movie Captain America: The Winter Soldier in April.

Superheroes have it easy: We only expect them to save the planet every now and again. Superhero movies, though, have the daunting task of illuminating our souls.
Dazzling effects, strong stories and bold heroes mean bubkes unless they inspire us. Thank the gods, The Avengers is just what it ought to be – inspired.
After five recent films about the solo exploits of Marvel heroes Iron Man (Robert Downey Jr.), Thor (Chris Hemsworth), Captain America (Chris Evans) and the Hulk (Mark Ruffalo, outclassing Edward Norton), The Avengers weaves its narrative threads into a vibrant display of effects wizardry with characters to love and wit to spare.
