The Black Order

It's only just clicked why they're called that. Sometimes my brain is slow.

Corvus is the scientific name for Raven. Ravens are usually black.
Proxima Midnight. This one is obvious....
Ebony Maw. Ebony is a heavy blackish or very dark brown timber from a mainly tropical tree
Cull Obsidian. Obsidian is a hard, dark, glasslike volcanic rock formed by the rapid solidification of lava without crystallization.

I feel stupid for not thinking of this earlier.

    But isn't "Black Dwarf" other name for Cull Obsidian?

    Yeah it is, but gotta try and keep it P.C. Even then it still didn't fully click until now.

    It would be sweet if they got a "quantum trinity" or "inhuman royal family" attack buff when all four of them are in the same team.. and then an additional thing if you have a Thanos in the team as well

    Maybe they'll be in Endgame? I mean Thanos is short on Generals right about now.

    Supergiant isn't well known. He isn't in much media other than comics

    Cull Obsidian is actually another name for the group in the comics.

    I also noticed this a while back and went "Huh, I see what you did there."

    I haven't found anything about Cull Obsidian being a different name for the Black Order. Have you got a link or a source I can read? I love learning about characters and lore.

    Yeah, I believe Disney wanted to avoid that PR nightmare.

    Why do I care for 2 champs he featured in 1 MCU movie, only to be killed within the first section of that movie? It's ridiculous.

    Ronin I get, hero who is a version of someone who'd been in several films. Corvus and Proxima I get, as they were released with the release of the movie they were in. This is just a year too late for me.

    Because it's expected Endgame will include some form of timetravel. As such, it's very much plausible all 4 of these characters will be used again.

    It all depends on how the Avenger's "undo" Thanos' finger snap.

    It doesn't really explain why the two names, but it at least shows them lol. Still a good write up on the team. If you're really interested in it, then you should read Jonathan Hickman's infinity run (and the tie-ins). Great storyline.

    Interesting.... I'll have to check them out properly myself. I usually just research the stuff I'm interested in without actually reading the source material. I find Comics Explained on YouTube to be a very useful channel for learning about Comic characters and story lines.

    Btw, I actually commend Marvel / Disney to remove connotations of the word "Black" with something evil. This is a really good step and now the only thing referred to "Black" in MCU is Black Panther who is a good hero.

    Might appear as PC BS if you are not affected by it but try being in the shoes of a Black man in a universe where everything Black is associated with evil.
