They’ve got civilians trapped.
I love that while the avengers fought the aliens you also see them helping to evacuate people so they are safe. It’s not just fighting, it’s rescue as well.
YES THANK YOU! This was my huge and horrible problem with Man of Steel. No help. Buildings falling left and right. I just kept saying “There’s another 10,000 dead people…oooh, and another 10,000 right there!” And no one cared. It left me feeling a bit sick, actually.
I love that the cops also acted like they should. Captain america told them what to do and they immediately helped people in the proper way. and the avengers helped cleaned up the mess. They were attacking the aliens but defending the people at the same time. being a hero isn’t just defeating the bad guys, it’s also protecting the ones who can’t protect themselves.
