IMO it was important from a moral and story-building point of view to show that for the good guys, simple revenge just never tastes sweet. Any victory won that way is hollow at best, and corruptive at worst. You want the little kids to take a positive lesson with this and internalize it. So they got that out of the way and gave you what you *thought* you wanted right up front with beheading the Prime Thanos.

The Time Heist also helps keep this movie from only being another high powered slug fest. You may *think* that would be fun but really it would have gotten old fast. It was fun and inventive - who doesn't like a heist? - And it gives something for Ant-Man to do that is worthy.

Ruffalo really knocked it out of the park as the half-Hulk/half-Banner hybrid. Funny as hell because it's under-played just enough.

And Steve Rogers finally solves the world's worst ever , longest-running case of blueball;, there's your REAL catharsis.

The bittersweet of course is losing Black Widow and Tony Stark. So fitting it began and ended with Tony, and I loved how he almost said he was God, but decided it was cooler and more true to say who he really was. His little meeting with Howard Stark reflected a moment I think most men would long for - the chance to go back and tell Dad all the things you should have, but have only lately learned with the passage of time and gaining of wisdom. But if you know anything about Marvel Comics, Iron Man and Tony Stark, do not bet on a real death, lol. Though there are numerous options for another to take on the mantle, as there were in the comics. That clanking sound over the end credits is exactly identical to the sound of Tony forging the original Mark-1 armor. That has to mean a replacement is being forged.
