Sorry guys, had to get that off my chest.
During my childhood superhero comics publishers were directly "pandering" to a younger audience (me!), so I celebrate Feige and company's attempts to wrest these characters away from the adults-only mentality it had fallen into. And if younger me was informed that by the time I was an adult there would be a series of well made, big budget, interconnected superhero movies for me and my family to enjoy, younger me's head would have exploded all over my latest issue of Marvel Two In One.
