Avengers: Infinity War has flexed its considerable muscle in theaters worldwide, pulling in over $1.2 billion over the last ten days. But the millions who went to see Marvel's latest movie were left pretty devastated over its dark conclusion — one which has resulted in plenty of dissection.

Infinity War sees a veritable army of superheroes — including Dr. Strange (Benedict Cumberbatch), Black Widow (Scarlett Johansson), Ironman (Robert Downey Jr.) and Black Panther (Chadwick Boseman) — joining forces to save the universe from the powerful Thanos (Josh Brolin). But the Mad Titan wipes out half the life in the universe, including many of the Avengers and Guardians of the Galaxy.
