The Marvel Cinematic Universe is the most beloved superhero film franchise ever conceived and the four-film Avengers Infinity Saga is easily its crowning achievement. With Avengers: Endgame closing up the saga in 2019 to glowing reviews and box office records, it became the highest grossing superhero film saga of all time.
Today’s animated visual is a little bit out of the ordinary, but we couldn’t resist sharing. Alistair Williams, of AW-Illustration.com, (who shared the animation on Reddit) chronicles each of the Infinity Saga films in a creative and beautiful way. As each frame of the animation passes, every nook and cranny fills with the iconic moments and critical plot points of each film. The result is really fun and makes us want to stop what we’re doing to re-watch the whole MCU!
Check out the animation below:
If you’re like us and want to see all of the tiny, masterfully illustrated details in a higher resolution, we’ve included a static version each film’s visualization individually below.

Our favorite detail: The hidden nod to the post credit scene with The Other and Thanos. We were so young and innocent back then; we could have never known what Thanos had in store for us.
Avengers: Age of Ultron (2015)
Our favorite detail: Just like the city of Sokovia in the film, the platform is cracked and rising into the air.
Avengers: Infinity War (2018)
Our favorite detail: It’s going to have to be a tie between Star-Lord pointing his quad blaster at Thanos and the platform itself slowly disintegrating away.
Avengers: Endgame (2019)
Our favorite detail: Just as it was my favorite moment in the films, it’s the resurrected heroes emerging from Doctor Strange’s inter-dimensional portals, just in time to save the day.

The Ultimate Guide to Sailing Knots
One of the most important skills to learn as a sailor is the art of knot tying. Knots can be used for so many things across the board. Fishing, crabbing, mooring, docking, sailing, anchoring and even saving lives on the water, just to name a few. A good knot verses a poorly tied knot could mean the difference of your boat floating away in the middle of the night or staying safely secured to the dock or mooring. This visual guide from the team at SeattleYachts.com illustrates 16 of most commonly used boat knots in the nautical world.

The half hitch is the first knot represented on the guide and it is touted as the quickest and easiest knot in the boating and sailing world. It is commonly the start of many other knots, like the double half hitch which is a more secure version its original. This knot can help keep boats securely tied to their docks without worry of slippage. The anchor hitch is another important knot represented on this graph. All boats need to use an anchor from time to time and this knot is made to hold heavy loads and also stay tight when there is slack in the line. Knowing the basics of knot tying is also a good survival skill to have. Knots can be used in shelter building, fishing and foraging for food, and even lassos like the bowline, which can be thrown into the water to help save someone who can’t swim. Try your hand at some of these sailboat knots on this visualization and see how your skills compare.
A Timeline of the Marvel Cinematic Universe
The Marvel Cinematic Universe (MCU) is one of the most popular and lucrative franchises in the world. It’s the highest-grossing film franchise of all time, and also ranks very highly among the highest-grossing overall media franchises of all time beneath global powerhouses like Pokémon and Mickey Mouse. The movies and television series bounce around the timeline of the MCU, and the multitude of characters featured can make it hard to keep track of each hero’s journey throughout the universe.
Reddit user AdamJGarrod posted an original visualization to the Data is Beautiful subreddit which tracks the path of each character chronologically through the movies and television series, starting with Captain America through the not-yet-released The Marvels.

The graphic, created using digital illustration program Procreate, maps the progress of the most popular heroes in the MCU through the films and TV series that they appear in. Chronologically, the first film in the universe is Captain America, which takes place during World War II. Using the visualization, fans can chart the journeys of the three main characters (Captain America, Bucky Barnes, and Nick Fury) as they make their way through the different movies and shows of the MCU.
It’s also interesting to see where new characters first appeared in the MCU. Some of the heroes, like the Hulk and Iron Man, first appear in their respective eponymous films. Other characters, like Ant Man and Spider-Man, appear chronologically well before their own films were released.
Whether you’re a diehard Marvel buff or a casual fan of the films, you’re bound to find this unique visualization intriguing.
