    That's super easy to fix though. All you need to do is start the first movie with news footage clips/cellphone video of teens getting their powers, and accidentally killing a bunch of people. Then the dangerous, unstable mutant narrative can go full on. Then you can start immediately on the sentinel program and concentration camps, maybe slave state Genosha. And If you're going to reboot, might as well go whole hog and have it be the Original 5. You could even bullshit that the reason we haven't heard anything about it is because it all happened during the 5 years of the Blip, since we know almost nothing that happened then that doesn't revolve around the Avengers directly.

    I can't believe that mutants are operatives of Thanos created to subjugate the weakened Earth.

    iirc quicksilver and scarlet witch were mutants in the comics but got powers from an infinity stone in the mcu so just make it so when everybody was brought back in endgame with the stones it awakened their mutant powers.

    Quicksilver and SW have been retconned as not mutants, nor Magneto's children in the comic books too.
    As the size of an explosion increases, the number of social situations it is incapable of solving approaches zero.

    Also a lot of the tricks that Mysterio pulls off don't make sense once the methods behind them are revealed. Like he clearly causes Spidey to hallucinate and have some mental shit going on despite his powers apparently just being projections. But that's almost expected for these kinds of reveals.
    Yeah, exactly! Or how about the air monster not actually causing air currents, the water monster not making people wet, the fire monster not creating any heat even as it melts (how?!) huge metal structures?

    In fairness, there were physical drones hiding inside the projections, they weren't pure illusions. So there's no reason they couldn't burn, soak or create wind-currents when necessary to keep up the "show". Still a bit of a stretch for it to be pulled off so perfectly, but that's just comic-book logic for you.

    Mysterio has imo always been very “thats bullshit, but i believe it”. It doesnt bother me, im a mysterio fan and i think they did a great job appealing to me. what does bother me is that stupid peter calls a drone strike on his friend shit. Even for Tony, giving a teen access to killer drones is too much. The whole drone sunglasses plotline, thats a pass from me.

Like, I'm not even talking "Hawkeye could've taken care of the whole thing before breakfast", just Nick Fury not somehow jobbing his ass off and sending a sniper (which, Maria Hill's omnicapability aside, he WAS SPECIFICALLY SHOWN TO HAVE ON HIS TEAM) to cap Beck on the bridge would've shorn the movie's last half hour easily. Not to mention the complete cop-out of Beck managing to both kill himself while trying to kill Spiderman AND SOMEHOW STAGING IT ALL BEFOREHAND.
    Eh, it's Mysterio, if any villain in the MCU can pull the "I only faked my death and it was all part of the keikaku, or at least Keikaku B (Keikaku means Plan)" card, that's him.

    Personally I'd kinda like that if they're ever going to do the Sinister Six, since man, otherwise they have a freaking lot of buildup to cover in what, one movie or two?

    That's not how the glasses work, though. They ID anyone they see, except for Bec for no stated reason.

    The glasses didn't catch Skrull!Fury either, so there's clearly some way of bypassing them by that logic. Also even if they can ID anyone, it doesn't mean Peter is going to look if he has no reason for doubting someone's identity. He clearly doesn't have those ID blurbs active all the time or else he wouldn't be able to, y'know... see.

    Fury is understandable since it goes by facial recognition and Skrulls are perfect physical doubles. But it tells Peter that Flash's mom doesn't care about him without any prompt whatsoever, how is that a easier pull than someones job history?

    It wouldn't even take any time at all to sort it out. "Hey my glasses say you're Quentin Beck and you used to be a tech at Stark" "Oh is that what the local me did? I'm actually from two realities over. Did you know our Cap was Black?"

    I mean ok, that's fair, but as someone whose only contact with Mysterio was the old Spiderman cartoon I was hoping for a reinvention that would be, well, less cartoonish.
