Who was it here who had the evil idea for the alternate ending where the movie ends with Thanos dusting out, thus leaving the Avengers without anyone to punch?


*raises hand*

I mean, they would’ve just invented someone new for them to punch in the sequel, but it would’ve been worth it to have all the Infinity Gauntlet readers going, “Cool, they’re doing that thing from the comiWHAAAAAAAAT????”

So, I go on Amazon to see what Kindle comic books they have. They have one called Infinity Gauntlet and one called Infinity War.

I'm not sure I reeeeeeally care about either one. But if I were to get one or the other, which one would be more in line with this movie?

Thanos Quest is a really well done two issue set up for a Infinity Gauntlet.

Infinity Gauntlet is the original Thanos has the Gauntlet miniseries that's a classic and the movie borrows little bits of.

Infinity War and Infinity Crusade are sequential sequels that can occasionally be 90s fun but are generally progressively less good and were progressively less of a big deal as they came out.

-ZacWilliam, loved Gauntlet as it came out when I was in Middle/High School, remember some of the evil Doppleganger stuff from War as fun in some of the crossover books, and Probably got two issues into Crusade before I stopped caring.

When reading Infinity Gauntlet, also be prepared that aside from Thanos and Doctor Strange, most of the movie cast are out-of-focus in the comic story.  Many of them are in it... but aren't really the main characters.  Actually, tell a lie, Nebula and Drax have much larger roles than they did in the movie, but then again they are far different characters in the comics than they are on-screen.

Having rewatched it on Blu-Ray, I'm still enjoying it. That being said...Star-Lord ain't gonna live down this movie anytime soon.
 

Spoiler


If Dr Strange is to be belived. Star Lord had to do what he did for them to win. He said he only saw one way for them to succed. We know the good guys will succed. So we can decern that they are currently on the one path to winning.

 

Going back to my theory about Thanos keeping his word, Strange giving up the time stone willingly to get him to spare Tony was the only scenario where Tony survives, and Tony will save the day in the next one.

 

To expand: while the snap was random, it did kill everyone on Titan, the group who came really close to defeating Thanos, except for Tony and Nebula, who others made specific deals to save. Thor also came close to beating him and survived, and Loki made a deal to spare him. Wanda came close to defeating him but rejected a deal, and she got ashed.

I prefer to believe he meant "there was only one way to win...after this moron over here let his anger get the best of him and ruined over 14 million chances of us succeeding."

 

*rolls eyes* This gripe was already old a week after the movie opened.

 

1) Consistent character trait through all of his appearances.

 

2) I cut the guy a break. Why? First off, Gamora made him promise to kill her if Thanos got to her. Thanos got to her, Gamora begged Peter to kill her like he promised, and he decided to live up to that promise, and pulled the trigger to kill her.

 

Think about that. He pulled the trigger on the woman he loved because he made her a promise, fully expecting that she would die by his own hand. Yeah,Thanos robbed Quill of his agency by turning the blast into bubbles, but he had no idea that would happen. In his mind, he made a choice to kill Gamora...it just happened to get averted.

 

Don't underestimate that trauma. That choice doesn't just roll off him like water off the back of a Duck. That's the sort of thing that sticks with you.

 

Anyway, Gamora survives, and now he's got a chance to save the woman he loves, and then he finds out she's dead, because Thanos killed her. There's no frigging way he stays calm after that, not after what he went through earlier: He promised to kill her. He chose to kill her as promised. She survived, which gave him a chance to save her, and now she's dead.

 

So yeah, he lost his head. If he hadn't, he wouldn't be the Peter Quill we've seen in 3 films now, and it would also be an unrealistic expectation for someone in his position, and it would have totally taken me out of the film.

 

Also, if Quill is a moron for loosing his shit after everything that had happened, then Thor is just as big a moron for going for Thanos' heart, instead of the gauntlet.

G3 may not happen, but I doubt they'll leave everybody dead. As someone else has suggested, they could turn G3 into Thor 4, and have the Guardians...or most of them...teamed up with him.

Or Thor just gets a talking animal sidekick when they realize they can't completely undo what Thanos did.

 

I'm not wanting that, or saying that should happen. It just feels like it could be a strong possibility. "How should we handle this?" "Well, didn't they all die? Seems pretty well handled already." The gauntlet looked damaged at the end, so it doesn't seem too far fetched for us to end up with "With the condition the gauntlet and stones are in, I don't think we can complete undo what has been done." To explain away anyone that doesn't get undusted.

 

 

Also on the topic of Thor, I really don't like that they undid the loss of his eye. That just felt like a representation of his character growth. I don't mind the new hammer, that makes sense. Its not about needing a weapon to feel complete, its about needing a weapon because both he and Hulk (the two strongest Avengers) got completely owned by Thanos, of course he'd be wanting to find a new way to fight him. But the eye feels symbolic of everything he lost and gained to be fixed so soon.

Yeah, that's good enough, even without the build up of Thanos Quest or Adam Warlock (which isn't in the MCU yet). I think at that time, the crossover caught every character and reader by surprise. You're, like, reading Sleepwalker (or any Marvel title except X-Men) then, WTForbrushman, why did Sleepwalker's human host disappear?!?!

Yeah, you can pick up that 6 issue tpb. You will see a lot of characters you might not be familiar with but it'll be cool! Cloak, Drax, it'll be cool!
