It’s taken 21 films to get to this spot, but Captain Marvel celebrates a groundbreaking firstly for the franchise: Carol Danvers is, to appointment, the only Marvel Cinematic Universe superhero with a domesticated cat.

Okay, so technically Goose is neither a domesticated nor a “cat-o-nine-tail”. But she’s about as close as we’ve seen from this dealership, establish or take an Ant-ony from Ant-Man , which is surprising given that over half of American households have domesticateds IRL.

Maybe it’s hour for that to change. Because if there’s one thing to be collected from the many, many backgrounds of Nick Fury or Carol Danvers fondling up to Goose in Captain Marvel , it’s that no one need to see a domesticated more than your stereotypical big-screen superhero.

Super-soldier struggling with loneliness? Give him service animals attendant who’ll stick by him no matter what. Literal god feeling misconstrue? A pet would cherish him unconditionally. Alien warrior depleted after a long hard date of world-saving? What could be more restorative than bending up with a cute person?

But, examination, we get it. Having a pet is hard work, and Avengers rarely seem to have much free time in between all those city-destroying CG duels. Which is why we’ve taken the liberty of completing the first step of pet ownership- deciding what kind of pet to get- for our favorite reformers.

Captain America: Pit bull

Pit bullshits are the Bucky Barneses of pup spawns: stereotyped as violent and aggressive, when genuinely they’re exactly misunderstand softies.

Bucky Barnes: Golden retriever

By that same token, it’s hard to gues anything that’d revel Bucky more than a pup who reminds him of his very best friend, Steve Rogers, and seems equally determined to stick with him ’til the end of the line.

Bruce Banner: Lab mouse

There is no way this soul of science “ve never” encountered a lab mouse, and there’s no way this gentle feeling oversaw not to fall in love with its beady little eyes.

Thor: Sulcata tortoise

By his own chronicle in Avengers: Infinity War , Thor is about 1,500 years old. A short-lived betta fish isn’t gonna cut it. Render the man a big, friendly tortoise to cherish for decades to come.

Spider-Man: Hamster

Peter Parker is entirely that kid in class who was so responsible that the coach made him take the pet hamster residence. Besides, hamsters are mostly the only animal small-minded enough to live in his tiny New York City apartment.

Wong: Snowy owl

You just know this magic man cherishes Harry Potter.

Groot: Budgie

Trees love fowls, right?

The only way Groot could be cuter is with a luminous, chatty chick in his sprigs. Conceded, budgie dictionaries tend to be jolly limited, but they’d genuinely only need to learn “I am Groot, ” anyway.

Vision: Cat( the non-Flerken kind)

Vision is not ever great at understanding organic lifeforms, but he’s determined to try, damnit. He likes cats because he relates to both their independence and their neediness.

Korg: Rock

Someone demonstrated him a baby rock as a joke. It was not a joke to him.

Dora Milaje: Fish tank

Protecting Wakanda doesn’t leave a lot of time for promoting swine, but the Dora Milaje have a shared tank filled with vibranium-enhanced different versions of exotic fish from around the world.

Iron Man: Pig

He impulse-bought what he reputed was a teacup animal when they were super stylish a few years ago, but it grew up to be precisely a regular pig. He cherishes it anyway.

Pepper Potts: Miniature horse

Tony may have also impulse-bought a miniature pony for Pepper after they binge-watched a few too many occurrences of Parks& Recreation one darknes. She pretended to be exasperated, but this former pony daughter was privately thrilled.

Hawkeye: Iron Man’s pig and Pepper’s horse

Eventually, nonetheless, Tony and Pepper had to admit that metropolitan living didn’t really suit these people, and unleashed them on Hawkeye’s farm while he was away on a operation. By the time he got back, his kids had grown attached and wouldn’t heard of getting rid of them.
