Friday in Review: MCU Tag

Hello all! So I was going to do another book review for this Friday buuut then I read Nicole's blog post and saw she "stole" a friend's tag from her blog and I was like I'm going to do that too. So I totally stole her stolen tag and am going to do it on here cuz it looked so fun!

Rules of the tag:

Feel free to include the above graphic somewhere in your post (but it’s definitely not necessary). 

Take the questions and answer them on your blog (or social media or wherever!). 

Tag up to 5 other Marvel fans! 


Without further ado, here is the Marvel Cinematic Universe Tag in honor of Endgame created by Christine Smith. 😃

How Were You Introduced Into the MCU Fandom? 

Well, so, my answer to how I got into the MCU fandom starts with the comics. Actually, it starts with a TV show. I don't know if anyone else has ever heard of this one but I loved X-Men: Evolution. It was an early 2000's show and to this day is still one of my favorite iterations of the X-Men. I grew up loving the X-Men. I'm pretty sure they were the very first group in the MCU (comics) that I fell in love with. They were the ones that made me love this fandom from the very beginning. I also grew up playing with Marvel action figures with my brothers and with a mom who was well-versed in the characters and their powers, so when they started coming out with movies based around these characters? I couldn't wait to watch them. So, yeah, the X-Men were the ones who introduced me to the Marvel Universe and therefore brought me into the MCU fandom years later.

What's Your Favorite Marvel Film? 

Uph this one is hard!! The first one that comes to mind though is Thor: The Dark World. That one is at the top of my list of favorites in the MCU. However, if we're talking pre-MCU, I thoroughly enjoyed the Ghost Rider movie with Nicolas Cage. One of my all time favorite Marvel movies since the moment I saw it. (Dark, dangerous anti-hero anyone??)

Top favorite marvel character? 

Psh, as if I can choose just one! Thor's definitely way up there, right next to his bro Loki. Black Widow's up there too... Gamora, Ant-Man (he's hilarous!), Spider-Man (not Tom Holland but like the Toby Mcguire Spider-Man), Bucky, Captain America, Ghost Rider (of course) and literally every single one of the X-Men with Rogue at the very top. Sorry, X-Men holds a very special place in my heart and if ever asked the question of who my all time favorite marvel character is, I will always one hundred percent say Rogue.

If you were transported into the MCU and had to trade places with one of the superheroes, who would you choose?

Ummm... I wouldn't be able to survive being any of them. But I think I could handle being the Wasp. Shrinking and growing super tall and flying around sounds pretty cool. I guess that probably appeals to me because it would fulfill my childhood love of fairies haha 

What are some of your favorite quotes from the films? 

Look, I promise I'm a legit Marvel fan but my memory isn't so great sooo give me a second to Google some quotes. Although I will steal one or two from Nicole's post because they for real are some of my favorites haha 

"Baskin Robbins always finds out."

"Oh, this is much better. Costume's a bit much . . . so tight. But the confidence! I can feel the righteousness surging! Hey, you wanna have a rousing discussion about truth? Honor? Patriotism? God bless America!"

"I can do this all day."

"I am burdened with glorious purpose."

"There's an Ant-Man and a Spider-Man?"

"Well, for one thing, I'm not Asgardian. And for another, we have the Hulk." 

"I am Iron Man." 

"I know this neighborhood," he says. "I got beat up in that alley. And that parking lot. And behind that diner."

"You've lied to me, I'm impressed!" 

"If it were easy, anyone would do it." 

There are many more but... these are all I got for now haha 

Which crew would you want to be part of the most: Avengers, Guardians of the Galaxy, or Revengers?

Hahaha! The Revengers are hilarious! The Guardians are a little too wacky for me so probably the Avengers. They get stuff done! And who wouldn't want to work side by side with someone like Iron Man or Captain America?? 

Favorite and least favorite ship?

I'm not a big shipper in the MCU. X-Men is a different story but I seriously need to stop bringing them up in all my answers here because they aren't even in the MCU yet! I have to say though, there was a little while there were I seriously shipped Bruce and Natasha... It was sad they didn't work out though. :( I shipped Jane and Thor and they didn't work out either... more sadness. Vision and Wanda too I shipped. Another not working out. And I sort of in the back of my mind shipped just a tiny bit Loki and Valkyrie haha 

Favorite and least favorite villain? 

Loki, duh! All time fave MCU villain! 

Least favorite, would probably be Ego from Guardians 2. He was seriously so annoying and that movie was a train wreck. 

Unpopular MCU opinions? 

I think my most unpopular opinion about the MCU right now is that I'm not a fan of Tom Holland's Spider-Man. I did not really like Homecoming... like at all. Spider-Man is a character that I love and respect deeply and I loved pretty much every other version of him... I just can't get behind Tom Holland's for some reason. However, Infinity War and Endgame did redeem him a bit for me. I am actually a little excited for Far From Home. Maybe it's because the first version I saw was Toby Mcguire and his Spider-Man movies were some of the first I ever saw so I have a deep love for those movies. They introduced me to all things awesome like Harry and Venom and Green Goblin and some of my all time favorite Marvel villains. 

I did not like the second Guardians movie at all! It was so stupid and gross and they went way over the top on the comedy to a gag-worthy degree. 

Thor: The Dark World is one of my all time favorites as I said above. I'd peg that as an unpopular opinion. 

Oh! And let's not forget I can't stand Captain Marvel. After seeing her in Endgame I was so happy I didn't spend my money on seeing her movie. She just felt so condescending and self-absorbed in every single scene she was in. But that's just me *shrugs* 

What's your favorite Stan Lee Cameo? 

Ok, so technically this isn't part of the MCU but I really loved his cameo in Into the Spider-Verse. It came out after his death, and I don't know, the scene was just really touching and how he told Miles the suit always fit eventually was really cool. 

Five people I tag: 


Umm, so I'm still getting to know people in the blogsphere so I don't want to tag someone that isn't a Marvel fan... So if you are a Marvel fan and happen upon this post and have a blog then I am tagging you and you should totally do it because this was pretty fun! :) 


Have a great weekend everyone! :)

  1. The Loki quotes you included are amazing. I’m pretty sure I quote him at least once a week. XD And Thor: The Dark World definitely deserves more appreciation.

    THANK YOU, someone else who doesn’t like Guardians 2! I agree - some of the stuff in there was NASTY. -_-

    Great post, Melody! :)

    1. Yess, he's very quotable XD And I know! It was very vulgar and a lot of the "jokes" and stuff did not need to be in there!

      Delete
  2. How fun!! You're one of the most unique fans I've "met" so far!! ^^

    Yeah, my family and I only saw PART of the Guardians of the Galaxy 2 and then we shut off the TV. It was bad.

Happy New Years!!

Happy New Years everyone! 2019 is officially here! Some parts of last year felt like they went by so slowly while other parts feel like they were a blur. But overall, 2018 was a good year and I have a feeling 2019 will be a good year too. 2019 is a new season of life for me and others and I'm so excited to see what God has planned for myself, friends and family.

I know I've already posted my goals for 2019 but there are a few more I want to add. Since writing the Looking Forward to 2019 post, I had a few epiphanies that I think are important.

First of all, one of the authors I follow on Instagram wrote a post today about the difference between dreams and goals. Goals are achievable. They can be accomplished. Dreams can be too, but sometimes certain dreams are out of our control and when we fail to accomplish that dream, we fail. She said how she really wanted to sell a book in 2019. To pitch a book to her agent and get it out there. But that's not a goal. That's a drea…

January 2019 Wrap-Up

Wow! The first month of the year is nearly over! I can't believe it's almost already February. Just one more month and it'll be my birthday!

With the end of January, I'm really starting to think about what I want to do this year, mostly concerning this blog and my writing and stuff. I want to change some things blogger-wise and grow my audience, though I'm still trying to brainstorm and figure out the best ways to do that. There are just a lot of thoughts and ideas floating around in my head right now that are hard to organize and put down on paper (or type out on keyboard), but I'm sure with all these ideas and thoughts, there will come lots more blog posts. So instead of trying to organize my messy thoughts right now, I think I'll just do my wrap-up same as usual.

January Writing: This month's writing has been good. December was a hard month for me. I was super burnt out and blocked in everything I did. Writing three different versions of my Peter Pan …

Friday in Review: Fictional Vacation/Would you Rather

Happy Friday! So, they awesome Lily Cat tagged me in this fictional vacation/would you rather challenge and I am so excited to do this. It sounds so fun!

Alright so here's the deal:

~ Include the graphic Madeline made.
~ Answer the Questions 
~ Tag some other people if you feel so inclined
Let's jump right into this! 
Would you rather... 
Train with demigods for the summer at Camp Halfblood OR attend Hogwarts to learn some spells for a semester?
How is this even a question? ;) Camp Halfblood of course! I adore the Percy Jackson series, so I would do just about anything to be a halfblood for the Summer. The real question is, who would my parent be?? My enneagram four side who loves being special and different wants me to be a kid of one of the big three... maybe Hades just to make myself extra special and unique from everyone else ;) But most likely I'd end up being like a Posiedon kid... or if we're being real probably Apollo cuz I'm a writer and all that, even though …
