The yearning to be more than human seems universal; an internal drive to transcend our mere humanity. We’re a culture fascinated by heroes and failures of virtue tangled with god-like powers. How can we save ourselves being that our gods are so small? Are we ready to be little gods with powers beyond imagination? Would we be good at that? There are a lot of gods in this story, and more, many allusions to religion and religious ideology, most of them Christian, but some of them Pagan. Some might complain that there are too many, but here at apologetics.com it’s another opportunity to drive outside our comfort zone, grapple with ultimate questions and seek out a deeper understanding of God, ourselves and the universe. So listen in as the the apologetics.com team give their review of “The Avengers”.
