(Warning: Spoilers ahead from both Game of Thrones Season 8 Episode 3 and Avengers: Endgame)
While on one hand, Avengers Endgame is on a record-breaking spree at the box office the battle at Westeros has come to an end. The fans are still in a frenzy about the weekend which witnessed heart-racing action on Game of Thrones.
Two of the most popular characters from this weekend entertainment- Arya Stark aka Maisie Williams and Tony Stark aka Robert Downey Jr. were included in a piece of art. Shared by artist Jeff Cole on Instagram, the post asks fans to choose which Stark they feel is the biggest hero.
Avengers Endgame and Tony Stark
Avengers Endgame is the continuation of Avengers: Infinity war in which Tony Stark and his team fight against Thanos who has been teased ever since The Avengers, way back in 2012.
Arrival of Thanos in Avengers Infinity War came as a huge defeat for the Avengers, with 50% of all life in the universe extinguished in a single snap after he grabbed all the infinity stones successfully.
This time round in Endgame, the battle is on between all the superheroes of Marvel Cinematic Universe (MCU) and Thanos army continues. Tony Stark Ironman gets ready with his suit to absorb and control the Infinity Stones. He finally snaps his fingers to destroy Thanos and his invading army.
However before absorbing the stones, Tony understood that he couldn’t survive after the snap. He sacrifices himself so that others could live so that his wife and daughter could thrive in a renewed world.
Arya Stark in Game of Thrones
Before talking about Arya’s triumphant ending, let’s go back a little. Arya Stark comes back to Winterfell after she killed Walder Frey, the man who slaughtered her family and decimated their army. She baked Frey’s sons into a pie and watched him eat it, before slitting his throat.
Next, she killed Littlefinger with his own dagger after he betrayed her father, but her finest hour came when Westeros was getting ready for the battle with the army of undead.
Before Night King could erase all life at Westeros, Arya manages to charge behind the demonic creature and take him after sticking her dagger into his guts.
Arya’s story is still unfolding before our eyes and there is promise of high voltage actions as she kills Cersei Lannister according to Melisandre prophecy according to which who told her way back that she will “close brown eyes, blue eyes, green eyes, forever!”
Its a hard choice for both Avengers: Endgame and Game of Thrones fans which one of these scenes is more powerful and it is definitely a TOUGH CHOICE.
We have all seen these two Starks evolve for like a decade now and both Starks went from average citizens to superheroes, who were destined for bigger things.
Which Stark do you think has reigned supreme?
