No Way Home, Multiverse and Me
No way home being the 9th Spider-Man film being released in the last 20 years, we have had some great spidey flicks. Multiverse now being a new addition to ‘With Great Power Comes Great responsibility’ has been a delight to watch. By the Way, Responsibilities ain’t Decreasing any time soon With Multiple Universes at stake spidey.
Marvel has been laying the foundation of Multiverse with its mini-series Wandavision, Loki, and Whatif ?. The concept of the multiverse is a delight in itself with multiple realities occurring at the same time frame as ours. Zombie Avengers lurking in another timeline contrast to the ones that we know or for a change Ultron going on a killing spree capturing multiple universes or Ravangers Capturing T’challa instead of peter Quill as crazy it gets multiverse throws a world of madness. World or Worlds, Universe or multiple universes well I am not sure, that's what multiverse does to you.
Then Comes Loki, the God of Mischief with his multiple Variants. Come on your favorite variant has to be the crocodile or at least mine. I am spilling the beans Male variant version of Loki falls in love with the female variant version of Loki oh boy what drug do these writers take before writing something like this? ( I need some of those ). Loki Mini-series takes the saying Love yourself to a whole new level. Jokes apart it was an amazing mini-series with each episode throwing something new, timekeepers, branches in the timeline with a breathtaking cliffhanger to end season 1.
For years I felt DC animated Movies were better than what Marvel Used to make or maybe pacifying myself to the fact that DC live-action Movies didn't Live up to the expectations of its rival. The simple prejudice was put on halt when I walked into watch spider-man: into the spider-verse. The multilayered Storytelling was a marvel. A black spiderman for once whose parents are still alive, his Uncle turning out to be the Goblin ( instead of saying with great power Comes Great Responsibility ), and then You have spiderman from alternate Versions- one from 1930s Universe, one straight from Japanese anime and top it all a talking animal version of spiderman all helping our own Miles Morales. Seriously what do these writers eat and drink?
Fast Forward No way Home, a storyline that I felt was not that complicated as spiderman into the spider-verse but beautiful in its own ways. The hype was unreal remembered being sleepless the day before it hit theatres. Starting off with our very own Daredevil followed up by Tobey and Andrew, Marvel pulled off the heist in successfully feeding us with nostalgia. Oh yeah, the Villians From amazing spiderman and Tobey’s spiderman have never seen an audience Cheer so Loud for villains (Marvel Well Played with Nostalgia). I always Had this Soft Corner For Andrew Garfield, for me the best of the three Spidermans and yet never celebrated like the others. Was it his Fault that He got a poor story to act upon? Forget It, my man got his moments in No way home saving MJ from near death a redemption to him not being able to rescue his girlfriend Gwen in his universe. With No way Home marvel, at it again setting the stage for something even bigger with Doctor Strange Multiverse of Madness.
Now, why am I obsessed with Multiverse? Yes, It's fiction but gives me the license to create and live in my very own imagination. Sometimes a fuel for me to escape what I feel is a monotonous life (at least for the time being). An imagination of multiple variants resembling me in multiple universes of their very own. Isn't it fun to imagine, that there might be a variant of me being a Footballer playing for Real Madrid ( maybe I am Cristiano Ronaldo in their Universe), a variant of me who is a lead guitarist in a very popular band (maybe I am Kurt Kobain) or a bruce Wayne fighting to save Gotham? My very own imaginations for which I don't have to provide any justifications.
Coming back to reality Multiverse is just getting started at least in Marvel.
