    Default The MCU wasted Ronan the Accuser

    I'm re-reading Annihilation and Conquest right now, and Ronan has much more depth to his character than what is portrayed in Guardians of the Galaxy and Captain Marvel. The movies just has him as a edgy complete monster villain, destroying Xandar for the sake of evil, when really in the 616 universe, he's a far more complex character. He is like Judge Dredd or Inquisitor Eisenhorn, he has a grey and compelling morality, and though he may be a ruthless dude, it's not as simple as what is portrayed in the film. He cares about the survival of his people and the individual acts of justice, not the context. And his relationship with Crystal of the inhumans was cute. It's a shame we'll probably never get anything like Annihilation on the big screen.

    Loki aside, I think the MCU did a somewhat poor job of villains in general in the first couple of phases. Most of them weren't particularly memorable and most were killed off. I think in later phases they handled villains much better.

    Ronan was wasted, I agree. But even worse, they wasted Lee Pace!

    He was considered a lazy and incompetent villain in the first two phases.

    I post via my phone a lot, therefore I make the occasional grammatical error. Not an excuse just forewarning you. Feel free to call me out I won't mind.

    Thanos was great in Infinity War, but beyond that, all Marvel villains have been a letdown in one way or another.

    Generally Marvel has struggled a lot with their villains. Loki, Thanos, Vulture, Ghost, Killmonger......Mysterio was fairly decent......if we include the tv side of things Kingpin was fantastic. But other than them? Yeah, lots and lots of wasted opportunity and potential with most of the bad guys.

    Ronan is probably the worst of them all, simply because the 616 has such complexity and depth. Honestly, so far the Kree as a whole haven't been handled the way I had hoped they would be. I was really looking forward to Captain Marvel, hoping we'd not only see what set Ronan on the path of zealotry but also a better, more rounded view of the Kree.....and I definitely didn't get it. I got hope for the future, but.......really, the MCU needs to take a hard look at how they handle their villains and make some adjustments. We need more Lokis and fewer Yellowjackets.
    Higher, Faster, Further....More.

    I remember being pumped for them to do something more with him in Captain Marvel, but he basically ended up being little more then a cameo in that movie (like with Korath). Like they just brought him back for some fanservice, and that's it.
