Target’s Marvel Through The Ages continues with even more heroes! A brand new wave of Infinity Saga Blacklight Funkos have arrived at Target, featuring fan-favorite characters across figures, apparel, and accessories, with a new colorful twist.
The Infinity Saga is a film saga consisting of the first twenty-three films of the Marvel Cinematic Universe, encompassing Phase One, Phase Two, and Phase Three. The saga began in Iron Man and concluded in Spider-Man: Far From Home. The saga’s main theme centers on the Infinity Stones and the war against Thanos considered Marvel’s best villain in the theaters.
Here’s the breakdown for the latest release, inspired by one of the greatest sagas in the cinematic world and that has definitely left its mark on pop culture:
Billionaire Tony Stark (Robert Downey Jr.) has a life-changing experience in the desert and builds himself a hero’s costume. He battles a host of other tech industry figures and meets Natasha Romanoff (Scarlett Johansson), the Black Widow, and his SHIELD boss, Nick Fury (Samuel L. Jackson).
The man of science, Bruce Banner (played by Edward Norton and later by Mark Ruffalo), has a life-changing experiment in the lab and becomes an angry, confused green giant. The God of Thunder, Thor (Chris Hemsworth), is exiled to Earth and learns about sacrifice in a life-changing experiment before defeating some ice giants.
Steve Rogers (Chris Evans) is given a revolutionary serum in the 1940s and becomes a super-soldier who fights Nazis in World War II, but then is frozen for over 70 years before unfreezing in 2011.
Together, they all join forces – with an archery guy named Hawkeye (Jeremy Renner) – to defeat Thor’s mischievous half-brother, Loki (Tom Hiddleston), and his alien hordes.
PHASE 2 (2013 to 2015)
Phase two focuses on the Avengers achievements after the Battle of New York and also features more heroes, including Falcon (Anthony Mackie), Quicksilver (Aaron Taylor-Johnson), Scarlet Witch (Elizabeth Olsen), Vision (Paul Bettany), Ant-Man (Paul Rudd), and the Guardians of the Galaxy – consisting of Star-Lord (Chris Pratt), Gamora (Zoe Saldana), Drax (Dave Bautista), Rocket Raccoon (Bradley Cooper), and Groot (Vin Diesel) – and also explains the origin of the Infinity Stones.
It is revealed that the terrorist group HYDRA was operating undercover within SHIELD, resulting in the agency’s collapse. Now acting without SHIELD’s help, the Avengers work alone to take down HYDRA but unwittingly generate a more dangerous adversary in the form of hostile artificial intelligence, Ultron (James Spader).
PHASE 3 (2016 to 2019)
The story of Phase 3 is set during a time of discord generated from the Ultron attack sequence against Earth. With public opinion of superheroes becoming increasingly divided, the Avengers have fragmented over a Civil War, with the ideological rift between Steve Rogers and Tony Stark.
Amidst the turmoil of the Avengers, several new heroes are introduced, such as Doctor Strange (Benedict Cumberbatch), Black Panther (Chadwick Boseman), Mantis (Pom Klementieff), Spider-Man (Tom Holland), Valkyrie (Tessa Thompson), and Captain Marvel (Brie Larson). Finally, Thanos’ plot to collect all the Infinity Stones, which began at the end of Phase 1, comes to an end in this epic saga.
