Marvel Cinematic Universe (MCU) movies have been showing up in theaters since 2008, and the films of the franchise have arguably breathed new life into a whole lot of old comic book characters. Indeed, casual fans may never have heard of the likes of War Machine, Groot, Hawkeye or M’Baku before they all hit the big screen.

And Avengers: Infinity War – whose release happened to coincide with the MCU’s tenth anniversary – shook things up for the franchise in a very big way. At the end of the movie, the alien tyrant Thanos completes his Infinity Gauntlet – a weapon that can rewrite the whole universe. Thanos then uses the gauntlet to obliterate half the population of the world and, of course, half of the superheroes.
