Marvel Comics Biggest Problem

I’ve said it before, but the biggest problem I have with Marvel movies is that they waste so damn much time on origin stories. Give us a Star Wars scroll with “Peter Parker was bit by a spider and got powers”. As much as I enjoy the characters, most of the origin stories are just plain dumb and stupid and repetitive as hell.

____ was ____ and got powers.

Hulk was irradiated (gamma bomb) and got powers.

Fantastic Four were irradiated (solar radiation) and got powers.

X-Men were mutants and got powers.

Daredevil was blinded/irradiated and got powers.

Punisher’s family got killed and he got guns.
