The Simpsons parodied Avengers: Infinity War Sunday night. The show created superheroes, known as the Vindicators, who battle a villain in a storyline very similar to Infinity War.

The show makes a couple of obvious spoof characters, like instead of Iron Man there is Magnesium Man. The also tease some of the more ridiculous characters, for example one of the heroes is a human with an air rifle, known as Airshot.

The show also explored the intense fandom surrounding the Marvel cinematic universe. Much like Infinity War and Endgame, fans had to wait a year to see the sequel. So the primary plot of the episode centers around Bart Simpson knowing the ending of the series before anyone else, and using the knowledge to gain goods and services from fans hoping to avoid spoilers.
