The MCU has given us some of the most heart-wrenching scenes in its movies over the years. Be it Spider-Man: No Way Home’s last scene or the death of Iron Man in Avengers: Endgame, each one was unique and left a lasting impression on the fans. But recently the fans have taken to Twitter to claim that Yondu’s death in Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2 was even sadder than Tony Stark’s sacrifice.
James Gunn is known for creating both happiest as well as some of the most heartbreaking moments in his movies. The same occurred with Michael Rooker’s Yondu when the character was nearly known to any normal moviegoer before GoTG but took no time to become a fan favorite.
Yondu’s death held superior to Iron Man’s sacrifice
There was hardly anyone who didn’t feel anything when the battle with the Mad Titan and his army ended with Robert Downey Jr.‘s character saying the iconic “I… am… Iron Man”. It impacted the entire fanbase as they witnessed the end of the journey of one of the most memorable characters in the movies.
Since then, both the Marvel executives as well as Downey Jr. still face the question of any potential comeback to the MCU canon. The impact is surely huge. But recently, a fan took a unique take on the emotional scenes shown in the Marvel Cinematic Universe and claimed that Yondu’s death felt more personal than Tony Stark’s. While not everyone agreed with the notion, it gained an immense amount of support and a major part of the fandom came forward to support it.
Many fans pointed out that the Avengers: Endgame moment left a huge impact on the MCU as a whole but Yondu’s death left almost everyone with moist eyes and a heavy heart. In the scene where Yondu gives his suit and delivers the dialogue: “He may have been your father, boy, but he wasn’t your daddy.” still remains rent-free in the heads of the fans. Even the funeral scene gained a lot of appreciation among the fans who couldn’t talk less about the beauty of the Guardians of the Galaxy trilogy.
The fans couldn’t stop supporting Yondu’s death as the most emotional moment
Michael Rooker‘s portrayal of the Ravager is one of the most memorable characters in James Gunn’s Guardians trilogy. The fans couldn’t stop praising the scene and the Twitter was filled with reactions that depicted how the scene and the whole Guardians of the Galaxy trilogy has a whole held a special place in everyone’s heart.

It can’t be denied that Yondu’s death will always stay as one of the most emotional MCU memories. On top of that, after the latest Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 3 provided a brilliant farewell to our intergalactic heroes, many fans claim it a perfect comeback of the classic Marvel after a long time. But with a mature tone and a dark backstory given to the character of Rocket Raccoon, it can’t be denied that this threequel also presents some emotional moments that won’t be forgotten so soon.
Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 3 is running in theaters near you while all the other MCU ventures can be streamed on Disney+.
