I was not a big fan of Sci-fi movies until I watched the Marvel series of Avengers. I personally loved every bit of it, so before watching “Avengers- Endgame”, I started watching the prequels of the series. Right from the Iron Man to the Infinity War, I watched every movie before I watched the last part.
The war at the Endgame reminded me of Mahabharata war. The destruction, the fight for the righteousness, the fight for their loved ones resembles Avengers in many ways. Every character had their own perspective, had their own story to convey.
I don’t know why but the characters were quite related to the characters of Mahabharata. Though, I am not claiming that the Avengers were inspired from the Mahabharata characters.
Not going into the details of each and everything because both the sagas are incomparable in my view.
But this is completely from my perspective and hope you all can relate to it.
Starting from the Black Widow, reminds me one of the most prominent character of Mahabharata, Draupadi. The pride, the valour that Black widow carries with herself resembles Draupadi in many ways.
The incredible Hulk shared his similarities with the great Bheem. Both the characters were related to each other not only in terms of their sizes but also in terms of their anger, they both shared this quality together.
Captain America is more of a goody character and a warrior which makes him go parallel with the mighty Arjuna, the one who lead the army. Captain can also be compared to Yudhisthira for his righteousness and fairness.
Hawkeye, gives you Karna Vibes, because of the exceptional qualities that he possess such as he was an acrobat, marksman. One of the major quality that he shares with Karna is “Archery”. Even though these qualities are possessed by Arjuna, but for me Karna stands out.
The next in the line is Thor, he is known to be the God of Thunder, and in our mythology there is only one, who can be remembered of, is our very own Lord Indra. He is the ultimate God of thunder in our mythology.
The next important character of Avenger is the antagonist, Thanos, who is more or less like the antagonist of Mahabharata, Duryodhana. Just like Duryodhana, if there are people who hated Thanos, so there were people who admired him truly. So love it or hate it, you just can’t ignore both of them.
And last but not the least, the one who ended the war, the Iron Man, who somehow reminded me of Lord Krishna of Mahabharata. That snap of Iron Man at the climax of the endgame which ended the war prompted me that how only Lord Krishna was capable of ending the great Mahabharata war. I am in no way comparing Lord Krishna with a fictional characters. Please note.
There can be many other characters which can be compared to our historical characters.
But these are some of my observations of the characters that I believe have certain similarities amongst them. Not going into much detail about it.
If you have any such theories or observations that you believe in, please do share it on my blog, I would love to read them.
