26 Marvel Logic Comics That Prove Their Movies Make No Sense

The Marvel Universe has given us some of the finest superhero movies of our time; we’re all looking forward to catching Avengers: Infinity War (in theatres April 2018). But each of these movies has relied on beautifully interconnected storylines that have interwoven the fates of several major characters with what happens in previous installments (almost like a television series, come to think of it).

Many of these comics poke fun at the logic found in Marvel movies. And oh, are there holes in their logic. From plot holes to gender issues, we've covered a wide range of problems with the movies here, in a way that's sure to make you laugh.

As much as we’d like to say that each of these fan comics proves something otherwise from the movies, that’s not entirely true. Some of them enhance existing plotlines by providing alternative theories and scenarios that are sure to jog your fanboyism and make you go, "I wonder how the movies might have looked if they slipped such a scene in there."

Today, we're here concerned about the fun/funny side of these storylines that have been comically rendered by secular artists from around the world. It shouldn't be too surprising that in a series as large and complicated as the MCU, there'd be some continuity and logic mistakes. Let’s dive right in.

26 O Captain, Why Captain?

via: dorkly.com

It does indeed make little sense when the greatest superheroes of our time fail to show up at a crucial moment in crime-fighting history. When the single most powerful defense organization, S.H.I.E.L.D., has come under the magnifying glass, that itself should have goaded the Avengers to come investigate.

The choice of Deadpool to utter such a fact in this logic comic seems apt.

The no-nonsense immortal with a crazy sense of humor had better prepare himself for any excuses that the Winter Soldier might have to offer. Captain America has not exactly been on good terms with some heroes, and he has shown to do the same in lackluster style compared even to Wolverine. Speaking of ageless alpha-males, Captain America has also proven difficult to reason with.

25 The Ant-Man Goes Marching In

via: lunarbaboon.com

This comic might at first seem like your usual run of the mill joke, and one that deserves a chuckle at best, nothing more. But there are multiple layers of meaning to it than meets the eye. When you genuinely take the time to assess Captain America’s leadership skills, you’ll find that he allots tasks to Ant-Man that are way below his league to accomplish. We might be wrong, but the movies have done a good job of distracting us from the fact. Ant-Man can actually do a lot of deeds impossible for the other Avengers, but he’s given support status, at best, when he deserves more.

Then again, the Winter Soldier was probably saving him as a secret weapon, keeping him away from the front lines so he can summon his skills when most needed.

24 No Wonder

It is not entirely surprising to find that gender-bias has also made its way into fan comics. This is mainly because of how much isolationism is still prevalent in the movie and intellectual-property industries. While it may at first seem like there’s a profusion of female-led storylines these days, it took a lot of effort and cunning to get them published and/or adapted for the silver screen.

From actual comics to movies, Wonder Woman has earned a lion’s share of the box office profits since its release in May 2017.

Our present logic-comic reveals, in silly detail, how the initial impression of making this story might have been received by studio heads, and other personnel. It’s funny because it’s most probably true. Perhaps this comic could someday become a classic memory of the dumb old days.

23 Not Very Low-Key

via: pinterest.com

Odin’s penchant to get around is legendary, and this comic shows us in the simplest sense how so much lore might have accumulated in the Thor storylines. Not only is Odin, despite being omniscient and all-powerful, negligent as a father, there are also several tiny but significant loopholes in why he let certain things happen in the first place. Loki got the worst of it. We can almost forgive him for being so evil.

He’s been underestimated his whole life, and to see that truth so ridiculously portrayed in a comic makes us laugh from the belly. It’s funny to note that the comic also hints at mom’s lack of supervision when it comes to leaving one of her kids alone. But that could be attributed to artistic flow rather than anything intentional.

22 Widow’s Woes

via: dorkly.com

It’s been observed that costumes for female characters irrelevantly show off more skin and curves than that of male superheroes. Not that we’re complaining, there is undoubted appeal in such design. If you have it, flaunt it. However, you must admit it falls squarely under the gender-bias category.

While the whole world was besotted with Black Widow’s attributes, one artist came up with this.

What we found most interesting is that he put Nick Fury (S.H.I.E.L.D. leader, played by Samuel L. Jackson) on the other end of the ring. Aside from the man’s sarcastic image, it could be that the artist is hinting at bias prevailing at the highest rung of leadership in the Avengers hierarchy, and not necessarily that relegated to the core team.

21 Yours Cluelessly

via: pinterest.com

Nearly all readers will recognize the scene in this comic as an almost-complete replica of the same from the movie. It gives us a nice break from the whole alternative artist flow that we have been enjoying these past few comics. Loki is true to form, and being superbly funny; a rare trait (and treat) among villains.

He is featured alongside The Grandmaster in the popular instance where he pretends not to know his half-brother Thor. Meanwhile, the God of Thunder preps to face an arena opponent. It made for one of the most memorable and rib-tickling moments in Thor: Ragnarok. The timing alone had us shaking in our seats, and this artist seems to have ideally captured that moment in what feels less a comic and more a heartfelt duplication of a Marvel moment that will stand the test of time.

20 Many-Headed Universe

via: pinterest.com

When the good Captain America suddenly went “Hail, Hydra,” the moment packed sufficient shock value to punch holes in fans’ guts. The controversial change in status quo occurred in the comic book series Captain America: Steve Rogers. Captain America kept receiving flashbacks to a time when he was programmed by Kobik to believe that he served the evil organization, Hydra.

The Red Skull was behind the whole sordid affair.

Fans will recall how this arch-nemesis showed great interest in reality-altering artifacts. This comic, though funny and simple in comparison, touches upon a symbol, an icon, a man. Fans are justifiably divided about how the comic series has taken to this alternative storyline, to say nothing of how eagerly artists have taken to it as well. Case in point.

19 Avenging The Law

via: memedroid.com

Much keeps changing in the Marvel universe. This is to be expected in such a huge franchise, even including the part where Earth effected new laws to accommodate (more like regulate) the Avengers. Few fan art pieces depict the hilarious nature of this plot twist like the comic at this point.

The whole Civil War incident has been depicted beautifully but for a few loopholes here and there. It set the stage for Iron Man to play the role of tentative leader, and inform the Avengers that their time’s up, meaning they can no longer carry on doing whatever they please, whenever they please. In an ungrateful (our words) world, people are terrified to experience another ‘Bad Superman’ phase, and believe laws for the Avengers can help with such eventualities; much like they help with major crimes.

18 What Fresh ‘Hela’ Is This?

via: pinterest.com

There has been an awful lot of reliance on canon in the Marvel universe; superhero/pop culture movies, in general. What is canon, and what isn’t? What can be considered authentic back-stories and character origins, and what cannot? In Loki’s case, as evidenced in Thor: Ragnarok, our homework led us to understand that Loki and Hela are so alike in character that the lore could probably have been saying that they’re one and the same person. In truth, Hela is not Thor and Loki’s sister.

She's rather Loki’s own child by way of a giantess named Angrboda.

This comic now seems to make more sense. In fact, it’s hugely sarcastic, and we love it for the same. But the comic seems to have relied on Loki as a sibling to the Goddess of the Underworld, which might explain his relatively common reaction.

17 Best Served Cold

via: twitter.com

The affair spanning Civil War and its political fallout led Marvel-lovers the world over to assess what was really going on under the surface. Some of the Avengers first started out seeking revenge instead of doing the right thing, in keeping with the code of superheroes everywhere. But that's to be expected; realism, character-growth, and all that. Wonder what Spider-Man would have said, considering one of his chief mottos is "With great power comes great responsibility." Wait, he too wanted to get revenge for his uncle.

As Black Widow keeps naming names in this comic, fans are sure to recall lore, canon, and movie-moments when Thor, Valkyrie, the Hulk, and of course Loki were all out for revenge concerning a sore personal problem, before they all teamed up. As mortal as such concerns may seem, it’s only fair that they are called Revengers.

16 Make It Work!

via: pinterest.com

This is one of the normal logic comics on our list. Observing the way so many of us (aka Midgardians) prefer to dress with careless abandon, it only goes to show that Hollywood might lap up the fact and use it in one of its scripts.

Case in point, making Odin appear human by pitting him in the role of a homeless person.

But here’s where the comic provides the punchline. Like father like son, Thor pulls off the same look, minus the roleplay. While the scene itself is not entirely true, it still goes to show how a low opinion (Loki thinking about homeless people when he refers to us Midgardians) can become a rib-tickler when captured in a "you can laugh at that now" movie-light.

15 Priority Report

via: aminoapps.com

Spider-Man has given us some of the choicest moments in Marvel’s lineup of superhero movies. It’s no surprise that there are comics made involving him taking on the rather obvious role of jester. Alternate Universes are at once attention-grabbing and worrisome, especially for fans who may feel deep down that a fresh storyline inclusion could potentially ruin the entire franchise for them. With Spidey, though, you can certainly expect a few laughs, like in this comic.

So tingly are his spider-senses for having lost a limb that he barely stops to ponder the elephant in the room. Note, we aren’t sure if this is based on actual canonical fact or if the artist is exercising their license (there’s so much lore to forage through). Whatever the case, this comic left us in stitches nonetheless.

14 Born To Be Blond

via: magickmaker.deviantart.com

"All Asians look alike." While this ill-informed sentence has been proven wrong time and again, meme-artists have taken to showcasing a lineup of white actors and proving that Similitude is superior to Similarity. Our comic seems to have tapped into this very line of thought and given us a funny piece.

Even the Avengers are not infallible to this, um, logic.

Since no racist themes (not that we know of) have been grazed in the actual movie franchise, we believe it is alright to include this comic on our list and not be held culpable for promoting a bad image for Marvel. A subtle Aryan theme seems to be happening in this fan strip (no pun intended, oh wait), but we are too busy chuckling to pick apart a harmless comic.

13 Kitty’s Choice

via: pinterest.com

We’re guessing this comic was inspired by the fact that T’Challa (played by Chadwick Boseman) has depicted a few choice feline characteristics while performing the role of Black Panther in the movie. Owing to how highly the Internet already holds cats, it’s no surprise that they took to the Panther with comic glee. Boxes have proven a special favorite of the feline race, including big cats.

It’s funny imagining an actual version of this artist’s sketch playing out. Seeing the Panther do something slapstick like this might have added appeal to his otherwise serious demeanor. But then again, the Panther is almost perfect as he is; in this regard, he seems to have something in common with Batman.

12 It’s Hammer-time!

via: neoduskcomics.tumblr.com

Tony Stark is nothing if not innovative. He makes up for his lack of super-powers by being super-successful in the world of technology and robotics, and of course one can’t forget his overweight bank balance. With great technology comes great variety, if this comic has anything to say about it.

Tony has designed and manufactured suits for not only Spider-Man but also the Hulk.

Suits that enhance, focus, and polish the existing powers of the heroes wearing them. The big guy’s suit has been missing a key ingredient, namely Thor’s Hammer. Our artist has proven themselves exceptionally witty by coming up with a hysterical resolution. Wonder what Mr. Stark might say, if he hasn’t already hired the person to come work for a new stand-up troupe he’s funding under his company banner; pardon, we got carried away.

11 To Change Or Not To Change...

via: goldenmoustache.com

Spider-Man's had several artists in the comics, and the fact that the movie Spidey has changed will certainly not have escaped the attention of anyone who’s gone to see Marvel movies. This artist has not only given us a witty, and vociferous, comic, but they have also drawn themselves into the scene it seems.

We even see a curious idea being built here, prompting us to ask the question, "Do both Spider-Man changes (artist/actor) have something in common?" We are leaning toward no. Consistency has rarely been the strong suit of superhero franchises because creators/writers are often remaking storylines to give us something fresh. Perhaps with this comic, we might start looking deeper into why certain changes happen in the Marvel (and other) universe. We just might end up discovering all sorts of behind-the-scenes connections.

10 The Thing About Origin Stories

via: newgrounds.com

This comic is deep, and we mean deep. It hints at a possibly negative past for Fantastic Four’s The Thing, and it doesn’t stop there. It goes on to include key phrases that hint at what might have happened to him growing up.

With his condition, we have a creepy feeling that his parents might have been empty in more ways than one.

In keeping with the idea that the comics on our list are essentially alternative ideas from fans, and based on the movies and official franchise elements, we’d like to add that The Thing is merely voicing a fan’s dark take on the character’s past. Nothing untoward at all, come to think of it. The comic seems to have taken a foreboding but open-minded step in a modern direction. When read in the right context, the comic does appear funny.

9 God-Grounding

via: arkham-insanity.deviantart.com

Loki has proven to be just as popular as his half-brother Thor, if not more. This so-called bad guy has shown an ambiguous morality that, coupled with his charm and sass, has made him a fan favorite. In several regards, Loki has kept himself super-busy pursuing his ambitions, which includes bringing the known universe under his control. Who couldn’t love such a character? Anyway, this comic sheds light on how much Odin knows about Loki, as his bans imply.

By extension, it also reveals how little Thor knows about him, which is rather true from the official franchise’s perspective. The God of Thunder has shown to be a tad ignorant of his half-brother's capabilities. But comics are meant to spare us the serious side of Marvel storylines and to give us alternative renditions to laugh at, so have at it.

8 Spidey Sensibilities

via: neodusk.deviantart.com

Some plot elements are common enough to get snagged in fan-inspections. Marvel-lovers are certain to appreciate the finer points of storytelling, but when the plot turns tautological, they tend to lash out... with logic-comics and memes galore. Spider-Man has been a superhero favorite.

The latest reboot has what it takes to polish the hero’s image to a fine degree.

But fans are justifiably wary, and wondering whether the writers might have drawn a little too much inspiration from past Spider-Man movies. While movie-goers, in general, will most probably adore the new Spidey, geeks who have been part of this hero’s journey in comics, movies, games, and similar sources are keeping a keen eye on things, hoping their dear Spider-Man does not get squashed under hasty storytelling. Meanwhile, you can laugh at this logic-comic as you await the big release.

7 The Expressive Mask

via: geeksaresey.net

We’ve all wondered how our beloved superheroes manage to see past their masks, specifically the area surrounding their eyes. These ‘lenses’ are as specialized as their suit, that’s for certain, but fans have often brought up the complaint that it is illogical for them to have a full-white inner-background or the fact that the hero in question can ‘express’ themselves by squinting. Since these lenses are not adequate replacements for eyebrows, this logic-comic seems to make all the funny-sense in the world.

It’s a point of humor, not something to frown upon. While the Spidey-squint concept applies to several other heroes, it is still a necessary element in superhero suit design. Think about it, our heroes will otherwise come across as dull, lackluster, or simply cold and uncaring. The ‘expressive’ nature of their face masks helps alleviate that problem; call it creative license, if you will.

6 That’s Fair... Enough

via: pinterest.com

Unfairness is not a foreign concept in Asgard. We’ve all seen the way Odin favors Thor over Loki, and we’ve also assumed the obvious; Loki’s not the best choice for god by a long shot. However, this comic has something interesting to share. It showcases the various ups and downs between the two half-brothers.

Loki was more eligible for the throne than Thor, who proved careless, a bit arrogant, and somewhat naive.

The funny part of this comic: Loki gets a mere pardon, but Thor gets the crown. This is not to say that the Marvel writers got it wrong. Loki’s underlying impulsiveness to side with all things evil is better left supporting the plotline than skewing it too much; like if he were to be ordained as the next ruler of Asgard.

5 Prank The Prankster

via: deviantart.com/chibimanga

We can’t write a topic involving Marvel without covering the comic publishing house’s former editor-in-chief. This guy’s no fuddy-duddy! Stan Lee’s cameos in the film franchise have made their own impressions on fans, most of them benign. We enjoyed the way he had fun with his role, though they spanned all of several seconds or few minutes. Our current logic-comic is, therefore, an artist’s play on Stan Lee’s love for all his characters, and of course a troll-worthy rendition that will have you clutching your belly as you laugh in your seat.

Iron Man has been a tad bullyish, no more than usual, with his teammates, and Spiderman has proven to receive a good portion of his attention. While Tony Stark seems to be filling the shoes of mentor to Spidey, this comic has us in stitches.

4 The Cooties

via: orangebluecream.deviantart.com

Speaking of, Spider-Man’s penchant to raise comic relief in the movies has apparently carried over into comics. Here we see the fun-loving web-master luring the Scarlet Witch to a kissing booth only to use a line that she probably (again, too much lore to sift through) said in the past.

He gives her Iron Man!

While we don’t particularly see Tony Stark yelling "Cooties!," we do like the tactful way this fan-artist inserted The Vision (the character in green) into his comic. There’s a lot of funny creativity going on in this strip, and we like to offer several different case studies on our part, but that will definitely end up making a casual comic like this read highly boring. That said, we shall let you read and re-read this one, and share a well-deserved laugh.

3 Cat Got Your Tongue?

via: pinterest.com

The memes and comics simply don’t seem to stop creating alternative scenarios for our poor Panther. Take this super simple, but shockingly true feeling from one of the dialogues attributed to this superhero. Come to think of it, trolling aside, it really does sound like a famous movie dialogue. Perhaps something from the gangster days of Old Hollywood?

The expressions on Captain America and James "Bucky" Barnes bring this strip to life. It’s a pity we couldn’t see the stern ultra-serious look on Panther’s face, let alone a jaw-drop reaction to how lightly his friends are taking his plight. Look out, Captain America, you’re treading dangerously close to instigating another war. This is the man’s (Panther’s?) father we’re talking about, not his favorite brand of catnip.

2 For Richer Or Poorer

via: hai.grid.id

In comic books, we either see characters who are filthy rich or dirt poor. Of course, there are in-betweeners even in this department, but the core aim of our point is to share how comics, among other fan media, like to poke fun at this concept. Batman, for example, is capable of being who he is because of his billionaire status, just as much as how harshly the passing of his parents affected him.

Artists are not wrong in pointing out such truths.

Then again, a large chunk of superhero stories rest firmly on the financial status of its eponymous heroes. That Peter Parker, Ant-Man, and Captain America don’t own laden bank accounts tells something about their creator’s end goals for them.

1 Brothers, Disturbed

via: pinterest.com

Fans are nothing if not imaginative. They can come up with alternative versions for just about anything. Like the time Thor released on the silver screen, and his evil half-brother Loki showed the world that a villain can have Bond-level class and be a cunning anti-hero too. People took to the pair of them with such fervor. Somewhere along the way, a faction of fan artists started pairing up Thor and Loki in the other sense.

In what feels like a Roman-era sibling bond taken too far, we today have a sizeable collection of Tumblr posts depicting Loki and Thor in a weird light; no girls involved. While this is not a factor to be judged, we call attention to it here due to the comic that’s the highlight of this point. It’s super hilarious to read the well-timed scene, and the dialogue is as hysterical as something you may find in Rick & Morty.
