He virus challenge of the moment revolves around the universe Marvel. Since 2008, with the release of the first Iron Man film starring Robert Downey Jr., The Avengers have dominated the box office. With 39 films produced to date, including those from Marvel, Fox and Sony, an incredible universe has been formed where diverse teams of heroes coexist. Are you ready to test your knowledge about The Avengers? We propose a simple challenge in enigma format, in which you will have to decipher which characters are hidden behind these descriptions. We won’t give you details about their powers or clothing, but we will give you some clues about their context or their role in the Marvel Cinematic Universe.
Are you ready? It’s three twisty riddles that will challenge you to think outside the box. They’re designed to let you figure out which Marvel character we’re talking about, but here’s the twist: We won’t mention his powers or appearance directly. Good luck!
- “I am two brothers, but not from the same mother. In space I can dwell, on earth I can find. I am old and young at the same time, and the weight of the world I have carried. Silver and green I am, but in the dark I have always stayed”.
Does this character ring a bell to you? Pay attention to the colors and where they usually hang out. He seems to be an elusive character who has appeared in several movies in the Marvel Cinematic Universe. At the bottom of the note you will find the answers.
- “I am both at the beginning and at the end, although not always present, my essence is vital. I was created and destroyed, always coming back to being. The solution and the problem, in me you can see”.
This one is somewhat difficult. Could it be that you can see it and other times not? If you are looking for an extra clue, we can only tell you that it is not about The Watcher or the Watcher, although he also has the ability to move freely through the spaces.
- “I am not king, but I have a crown. On my island, the sun always shines. Roar my name at nightfall, with strength and honor, always standing.
After a riddle as complicated as the second, let’s go with an easier one. This character has also been part of the Marvel Cinematic Universe, although we will no longer see him. Is this enough of a clue for you to know who it is? Below are the answers.
The answer to this riddle is Loki.
“I am two brothers, but not from the same mother.” – Loki has two brothers, Thor and Balder. Thor is his adoptive brother, since Loki is the son of Laufey, king of the Ice Giants, but was adopted by Odin, Thor’s father. Balder is his father’s brother, both are sons of Odin.
“In space I can dwell, on earth I can find.” – Loki, as a character in the Marvel comics, has resided in many different places, including Asgard (which is on a different dimensional plane, often depicted in space) and Earth.
“I am old and young at the same time, and the weight of the world I have carried.” -Loki is an Asgardian god and, as such, he is much older than he appears. The second part refers to a time when Loki literally carried the weight of the world on his back as part of a curse.
“Silver and green I am, but in the dark I have always stayed.” – Refers to the colors often associated with Loki in comics and movies: green and silver. The “darkness” refers to the nature of him as the “God of Mischief”, often portrayed as a villain or, at best, an anti-hero.
The answer to this riddle is Vision.
“I find myself both at the beginning and at the end.” – Vision was created by Ultron, a villain who wanted to destroy the Avengers (the beginning), but Vision ends up being vital to Ultron’s defeat (the ending).
“Although not always present, my essence is vital.” – Although Vision hasn’t always been present in every Marvel movie or comic, his “essence” (the Mind Infinity Stone that resides on his forehead) is vital to many of the story arcs, especially in the Marvel Cinematic Universe movies.
“I was created and destroyed, always coming back to being.” – Vision has been created and destroyed on several occasions, both in the comics and in the movies. However, he always seems to find a way to come back, often in a new form or with a new perspective.
“The solution and the problem, in me you can see.” – Vision is often both the solution and the problem in many stories. As an example, his creation served to defeat Ultron, but it was also the key for Thanos to complete the Infinity Gauntlet, causing the elimination of half of all living things in the universe.
The answer to this riddle is Black Panther (Black Panther).
“I am not king, but I have a crown.” -Although Black Panther (T’Challa) is not a king in the traditional sense of the word, he is the leader of Wakanda, a fictional kingdom in Africa. He refers to him as king and wears a “crown” in the form of his Black Panther suit.
“On my island, the sun always shines.” – Wakanda is not an island in the geographical sense, but is an independent and isolated kingdom, with advanced technology and abundant resources (particularly vibranium). It is often described as a place of great beauty and prosperity, hence the mention of the shining sun.
“Roar my name into the nightfall.” – This is a pun on the fact that Black Panther is, well, a panther. Panthers are known for their roar, and because Black Panther is a feared and respected figure, it can be said that his “name roars” at nightfall.
“With strength and honor, always standing.” -Black Panther is known for his physical strength, but also for his honor and sense of duty. Despite the many challenges he has faced, he has always stood tall and fought for what he believes in.
