The Marvel Cinematic Universe once stood at the pinnacle of the film industry, particularly with the massive success of the Avengers films. Starting with 2008’s Iron Man, fans were captivated by the world made by the whole team. Even after Phase 4 ended, The Avengers are alive and well but not with all the original members. Now it appears a fan claimed that one particular scene from Echo is proof that Kingpin bought the Avengers Tower, only for the industry insider to reveal the reality.


The current crop of Marvel shows and movies don’t have the same edge or impact as the previous iterations, but they continue to churn out more and more shows – with Echo being the latest offer from Marvel Studios.

What Is Marvel’s Echo About?

Echo, starring Alaqua Cox, holds a special place among other Marvel shows because of the fact that it’s the first-ever Marvel show to have a TV-MA rating, as it will be displaying a lot of brutality and exposing the ugly underbelly of an organized crime circuit. It is clear that Daredevil inspired the show in a big way.

It is a five-episode miniseries that sheds light on the life of Maya Lopez, first introduced in Marvel’s Hawkeye. The series delves into Maya Lopez’s past and present by exploring her connection with her ancestors, which grants her supernatural powers. The central focus is on the conflict between Maya and her adoptive uncle, Wilson Fisk/Kingpin, as she rekindles ties with her birth family.
