5 Massive MCU Mysteries That Were Answered In The Comics

Comics: The perfect way to plug a plot hole.

Marvel Studios

By Odin’s beard, isn’t the MCU something? Twenty films, seventeen billion dollars, three phases, and one Korg later and Disney holds the key to the biggest film franchise ever. With any cinematic behemoth so mighty, there are bound to be a few unwieldy moments that slip past the bonds of reason and kind of make no sense. Despite near-universal acclaim, eagle eyed fans have pointed out various issues, plot holes and mysteries from the films that have seemingly never been addressed, leaving gaping holes in the continuity and lapses in logic.

However, fun though it always is to criticise, sometimes these moments weren’t forgotten, they were simply explained outside of the films. Ever since the first Iron Man film there has been a run of MCU tie-in comics that explain details all around the films. Be it that they explain just how a certain Infinity Stone got into certain hands, or what ever happened to a big villain teased in the early days of the MCU we never heard from again, these mysteries became mysteries no longer.

Prepare for some knowledge folks, as we turn to the musty pages of the MCU canon comic books to find answers to some of the greatest MCU mysteries.
