Avengers: Age of Ultron The Family

The Family

We are family? If the Avengers had a theme song, it certainly wouldn't be that disco classic from Sister Sledge. In their defense, it's hard to maintain harmony in a group as diverse, powerful, and strong-headed as theirs. Still, their struggles to show the love likely mirror some of our own, less superheroic experiences. And what they learn in Age of Ultron about being a team and sticking together also applies to our own lives—cape or no cape.

Questions About The Family

  • In what ways do the Avengers treat each other like family members?
  • Can the Avengers ever be as close as a true family? Why or why not?
  • How does the visit to Hawkeye's family inspire the Avengers as a team?
  • In what ways do the Maximoffs' family values make them heroic?

Chew on This

Stop trying to make it all lovey-dovey. The metaphor of a family does not neatly apply to a team of superheroes like the Avengers.

Hawkeye's family provides him a real-world perspective that makes him the most grounded—and envied—member of the team.
