What will THE AVENGERS teach us?
“Some Assembly Required”
“Every team needs a Captain”
Iron Man (audio below)
Iron Man 2
Captain America (review forthcoming)
I’m guessing the idea of working together as a team with different gifts will give us a story that reflects Romans 12. Even the need for a “head” on that body will bear itself out, reflecting our design as humans with a head that is Christ:
Rather, speaking the truth in love, we are to grow up in every way into him who is the head, into Christ, from whom the whole body, joined and held together by every joint with which it is equipped, when each part is working properly, makes the body grow so that it builds itself up in love. – Ephesians 4:15-16

I’ve got a hunch Stark and Rogers aren’t going to completely resolve the differences in their egos and motives without a discussion of the role Stark Sr. played in making both Iron Man and Captain America who they currently are.
Thanks for your helpful blog James. I’ve seen the film (earlier release date in Malaysia) and won’t include any spoilers here! But I will say that one of the fascinating themes is that of authority. Are we meant to be ruled by anyone and do we have a deep felt desire for such authority? (One particular speech by Loki brings this out quite well) The film is awesome on many levels!
