He is far more powerful than Loki, that's for sure, but there's still a ton of villains and groups in the Avengers rogues' gallery that can give the team one helluva fight for many sequels to come. Posters here are just exaggerating (and are just plain wrong) when they act like he needs to be saved for the climax, because (they believe, wrongly) that Avengers will have no more "big guns" to fight after him.
Okay, I said something kind of rude to you, which you don't deserve, because you are one of my favorite posters here. so I appologize and am deleting it. Sorry guys on top of a bit of explosive anger syndrome, Jon gets cranky and rude when he doesn't sleep.
