Rare stakes - What superhero movies get wrongRare stakes

Every superhero needs someone or something to save. And since the main character is a superhero, you are pretty sure that they will be victorious. So, if that's the case, you need to set the stakes for the film at a level that the audience feels that something really bad, really tangible, and really possible could happen. Consider the Avengers. All of the characters we've been meeting through Marvel's individual films come together to defeat an alien invasion in New York City. Are the effects impressive? Yes. Are there some cool action sequences? Yes. Is the end ever in doubt? No. And that's a problem. A movie needs stakes to make the audience continue caring about what happens to the characters, since it is possible that a character may be irrevocably changed by a personal failing or the death of a close friend or family member. You also need stakes that become progressively higher. For instance, in Avengers, they save a city from the aforementioned invasion. In Avengers: Age of Ultron, they save another city from being destroyed. So then, aren't they kind of the same?
