(Just a heads-up: there is a massive Spoiler Warning on this episode. If you haven’t seen Avengers: Infinity War or don’t want certain plot points revealed, come back to this episode after you’ve experiences the movie.)
“Avengers: Infinity War” isn’t just a summer smash hit, but also a movie with deep parallels to ethical questions faced by modern society. Marvel has been laying the groundwork to “Infinity War” for a decade, and has now introduced one of the greatest comics villain of all time: Thanos, who seeks to kill half the population of the universe.
And in their struggle against Thanos, the Avengers present a worldview consistent with Catholic teaching: that even a single life is worth fighting for.
