The Hierarchy of Authority

Minute One Hundred Ten: From The NYPD Taking Aim to The End of the Sabrett Hot Dog Cart

In the one-hundred-tenth minute of The Avengers

NYPD REPRESENT! That’s right, we get to talk about the NYPD taking on the Chitauri, even after finding out the National Guard isn’t coming. It does give us a chance to talk about the nature of these military organizations and why, perhaps, it makes sense to not feature them in these superhero films. After all, if all the USA’s military might was also here, wouldn’t it seem to diminish the power of our heroes a bit? And make this feel like Independence Day?

We get to talk about two more actors entering the MCU – Robert Clohessy and Enver Gjokaj. Turns out Gjokaj will actually be returning to the MCU but in the past as someone in Agent Carter. And we get to talk about their reaction to what’s ostensibly some guy in a Halloween costume hopping onto the top of a car and giving them orders.

That leads us to Tony and the leviathan he blasts with chaff, leading to massive destruction to not only 3 Park Ave, but also the Sabrett Hot Dog cart. It’s a sad day for NYC. Tune in!
