Marvel movies have reached a point of complexity with their interwoven plot lines that the comics are actually being adjusted to fit the movie lore instead of vice versa.
But there's one element that had to be changed so the movie adaptations could receive a PG-13 rating- the brutal and disturbing scenes found in the comics.
These family friendly movies rely on audiences having a great feeling about the heroes and a really bad feeling about the villains, but in the comics the line between good and bad gets a bit blurry.
Hank Pym, the original Ant-Man, has a history of domestic violence against Janet Pym, aka Wasp. Mutant siblings Quicksilver and Scarlet Witch are so close they once carried on an incestuous relationship.
Oh, and that tame spin put on the beginning of the Civil War in the third Captain America movie?
That was way too family friendly when compared to how it happened in the comics- it all started when a villain named Nitro used his explosive powers to essentially nuke the town of Stamford, Connecticut...
