I was browsing a library and found an a book from 1984 titled, "The Times Atlas of World History". In the section, "The origins of Man" I found it very interesting that even back then, way before aDNA, archeologists already noticed mixture between Humans and Neanderthals.

MCU Box Office and RT Ratings

I'm a huge Marvel fan. Phases 1, 2 and 3 of the MCU were fantastic. The Avengers and especially the Guardians of the Galaxy were the best. But since Endgame it seems like they've lost their way.
Post Engame, only Guardians vol 3 and Spider Man were worth it. All this messing around with the Multiverse isn't going to get them anywhere. They need to explore new paths.
There is talk of bringing back the X-Men and the Fantastic Four, Doctor Doom and even Galactus.
This would be a good way to go, especially if it included my favorite Marvel character, the Silver Surfer.
