Unless you’re living in Georgia and getting haircuts and massages with wild abandon, chances are you’ve been quarantining just like the rest of us. In response to the stay at home orders, a variety of home-bound memes have cropped up. There’s the “choose your house” meme that asks you to pick a group of people/fictional characters to live with. And then there’s the ladies of the House of Worth as quarantine personalities that was so popular it caused “Euphronia” to trend.

Identifying ourselves via memes is a fun, harmless hobby that serves to amuse us and distract us from our current apocalyptic hellscape. So naturally, we started thinking about nerdy alternatives to this meme. And obviously (because we have one track minds) we landed on the Marvel Cinematic Universe.
Specifically, we’re looking at how the Avengers coped with the snapture in the opening of Avengers: Endgame. The six O.G. Avengers each dealt with the trauma of Thanos differently. So let’s take a look at the coping skills of the core six and find out who we most identify with.

Bruce Banner/The Incredible Hulk
