However, as a real-world crisis engulfs the globe, it turns out that it isn't super soldiers, or mystical beings stepping up up to save the day - it's the people of the healthcare industry. Doctors, nurses (and all the other hospital staff alongside them) have been battling tireless and at great risk, fighting the Coronavirus Pandemic all over the world. Well, one of Marvel Studios' biggest stars, actor Mark Ruffalo, wanted to show his appreciation for all that healthcare workers are doing for us - with some Avengers: Endgame-inspired artwork, courtesy of BossLogic!
