"We don’t know who’s the President in the MCU."

This is why I steel myself before reading your Marvel reviews. You tend towards this sort of thing. :-(

But you write with such authority. About Marvel.

Of course we know who's president. We had an entire goddamn movie about saving him. It's called "IRON MAN 2." I recommend checking it out.

Not to mention his appearances on MARVEL'S AGENTS OF SHIELD. Like, a couple of weeks ago. And the time before that.

Even if you don't watch the tv programs, remember the movies, or read the comics, you could always google to fact-check stuff like this.

Ellis is not exactly not exactly obscure in the MCU. :-(

Not to mention you've forgotten the entire Smithsonian sections of WINTER SOLDIER, which we visited THREE TIMES IN ONE MOVIE -- once for a long long sequence with Cap, and President Ellis narrating his story, WITH A BIG PICTURE OF PRESIDENT ELLIS -- all of which you appear to have forgotten or not noticed somehow -- plus Cap goes there AGAIN to get his old uniform (giving Stan Lee his cameo), plus BUCK GOES THERE AGAIN at the end of the credits.

Argh, it's "Rhodey," not "Rhoadey."

Again, we have this internet thing you could check. And, like,

"Colonel James Rupert Rhodes, commonly known as Rhodey"

Rhody has been Tony Stark's best pal since January 1979. Thirty-seven years is really enough time to pick up what his damn name is.

"I mean, he doesn’t think it should have been up to him to decide Wanda was ready to be in the field. This isn’t because he doesn’t want the responsibility of command. It’s because he doesn’t trust himself anymore."

What bit of the film are you referring to here? I don't recall anything at all about him "think[ing] it should have been up to him to decide Wanda was ready to be in the field." Cite?
