The Avengers is one of the most popular franchises of the Marvel cinematic universe.
The movies feature a crowded field of heroes—much like the Democrats seeking the 2020 nomination against President Donald Trump.
Many Americans are holding out for a hero to render Trump a one-term President. Twitter user @chandlerjdean knew this when he decided to find the Avengers parallel for every Democratic presidential candidate.
The similarities—and Deans's description of them—are perfect.
