->''"The easiest complaint to make against the ending of ''[[Film/AvengersInfinityWar Infinity War]]'' is that it exists solely for Marvel Studios to reverse it. Surely they’re not going to leave the status quo with characters like [[Characters/MCUAvengersAllies Spider-Man and Black Panther]] not even existing? … But I would argue [[TropesAreTools this is not a bad thing]]! A serialized story that can’t return to some sort of status quo is typically a story with no center, one that spins off its axis very quickly. Humans crave some sort of order amid the chaos, and we do in our stories too. ''Film/TheEmpireStrikesBack'' ended with [[TheBadGuyWins the Empire winning]], Han Solo being taken by Jabba the Hutt, and Luke Skywalker facing [[DarkestHour his darkest moment]], and [[Film/ReturnOfTheJedi the next film]] more or less reversed all of that over the course of its running time. Most serialized television involves setting up big, epic changes that are then immediately reversed."''

->''"What this does is simply recycle old ideas even more and more, not allowing these characters to grow and change. This has led to [[AssPull dubious editorial decisions]], like [[ComicBook/OneMoreDay Peter Parker making a deal with Satan to destroy his marriage]]. Characters that occasionally changed and struck out on their own (Scott Summers leaving the {{ComicBook/X-Men}} after Jean Grey died, for instance) are now locked into their positions, calcified and stagnant. The flip side to this is that new characters [[CListFodder get strangled in the crib.]]"''

'''Gwen:''' Sure.\\
'''Batroc:''' Ah. But fairy tales mean [[HappilyEverAfter happy endings]]. They do not exist here. I will tell you. I have known my share of defeat and disappointment.\\
'''Gwen:''' Oh Batroc... that's because you're the [[TheGoodGuysAlwaysWin bad guy in the stories]].\\
'''Batroc:''' Indeed? So, you would say I am just a villain in Comicbook/CaptainAmerica's ongoing tale? (...) He has fought for decades, with only [[StatusQuoIsGod ze illusion of meaningful victory]]. Ze world is [[TheWorldIsAlwaysDoomed no safer place]] [[CrapsackWorld because of him]].
