I see the acronym MCU being used a lot on Science Fiction & Fantasy Stack Exchange.

What does it stand for?

  • Why unclear? It may be a bad question (lack of research on OP's side), but two answers justify that it is answerable. – TimSparrow May 24 '18 at 19:17

    @TimSparrow There was second, quite different question added, before edit. – Mithoron May 24 '18 at 19:32

As you can see from Acronymfinder.com,

MCU = Marvel Cinematic Universe.

    Or try to use the tag [mcu] on a question... – Mr Lister May 24 '18 at 19:26

    Telling someone to "just google it" is pretty damn rude. I've edited out the snark and left in the useful content. – Valorum May 24 '18 at 21:11

    @Valorum I disagree. Sometimes, people just need a wakeup call. If someone doesn't realise their question has been answered many times before on the net, a reminder that it does is not pretty damn rude. – Mr Lister May 25 '18 at 5:28
  • @Valorum: I politely disagree: tone is very difficult to detect in text; and for the record, I wasn't being rude... – djm May 25 '18 at 12:07

    @djm - I don't really see how the tone of "just google it" could be taken as anything other than a rebuke. – Valorum May 25 '18 at 12:09

    Why the downvote? Although repetitive, this does answer the question and it is quite right on point. – Shreedhar May 24 '18 at 18:55

    We downvote answers to off-topic questions to discourage people from answering them. – Ernest Friedman-Hill May 24 '18 at 20:03

    Except it's not off-topic...it's poorly researched but it's perfectly clear and entirely SF&F related. The Question should be downvoted to oblivion but not a perfectly reasonable Answer. – Paulie_D May 24 '18 at 20:07
