Avengers Endgame: Scooby Doo and Gang Save the Universe
With the release of Marvel Studio’s Avengers: Endgame this weekend, it has been estimated that all 7 billion human beings will have seen the movie at least once by 4:52 pm Eastern/3:52 Central Sunday afternoon, including all babies in utero.
So, if you’re reading this before Sunday evening, this is our obligatory Spoiler Alert.
After the Snap in Infinity War, when Thanos – using the power of the Infinity Gauntlet – wiped out the existence of exactly half of all living beings in the universe, including many of the Avengers, fans have understandably tried to figure out how our intrepid heroes would save the day and reverse the effects of Thanos’ actions.
In what is perhaps the greatest twist in cinematic history, the secret weapon employed by the Avengers is Scooby Doo and the Mystery, Inc. Gang.
After the loss of so many superheroes, Fred, Daphne, Velma, Scooby and Norville “Shaggy” Rogers travel to Avengers headquarters and offer their services to the remaining Avengers. Together, they track down the Thanos and the Gauntlet on a distant planet.
After several scenes of the Mystery Gang chasing and being chased by Thanos, they eventually devise a scheme to trap the Purple one and reclaim the Gauntlet. Through a series of humorous misadventures, Shaggy and Scooby are the ones who finally come into possession of the Gauntlet and reverse the Snap, but not before conjuring up a never-ending, lifetime supply of Scooby Snacks, first.
In the final scene, Fred dramatically removes the Thanos mask to reveal the villain all along has been…Mr. Dithers!
His final words, before being taken away by the police, were, “…and I would’ve gotten away with it too, if it wasn’t for you meddling kids.”
