Now, there's no denying that the world Marvel has created on screen - the Marvel Cinematic Universe - is a whole lot more exciting than the one we live in now.
Now, sure, there's a hell of a lot of awesome things happening in the real world every day - from world-changing events, all the way down to little acts of personal heroism - but at the end of the day, none of them involve Captain America or Iron Man saving someone from a burning building, or an alien invasion.
Have you ever wondered, though:
Just How Would the News Look in That World?
Now, we've already had the chance to see the television news' response to the major events of the MCU - with Daredevil in particular giving us a great look at just how they'd respond - but what about some of the world's most famous magazines?
Well, one intrepid fan artist, Kim McG, wondered the exact same thing - and came up with a series of awesome answers...
Cap Makes the Cover of Time
And, of Course, the New Yorker
Meanwhile Tony Hits Wired
And The New York Post Chips In
Meanwhile, Pepper Potts Gets a Lot of Attention
A Whole Lot of Attention in Fact...
Though Some of It's a Little More Unwanted...
Especially with the Rumor Mill the Way it is...
Meanwhile, Hawkeye and Black Widow are Apparently Together
Nobody Trusts S.H.I.E.L.D.
Us Loves The Avengers
Scientific American Tries to Make Sense of it All
The New York Times Explains A LOT
And, of Course, the Gang Get Together for New York Magazine
All of which tells us two key things - one, the Avengers make everything cooler, and two, Kim McG MediAvengers Tumblr is AWESOME.
