How Strong Is Thanos Without The Infinity Gauntlet?
- Published on: 2018-09-14
- today's video is brought to you by audible hey brother J we have been talking about infinity we're so much lately and guess what today we're diving right back in last week we talked about how star-lord despite his like total over-the-top emotional reaction really isn't to blame for if Thanos completing the Infinity Gauntlet what he did to get me wondering in the event that star-lord doesn't lose his mind right here and they do successfully get the gauntlet off of Thanos what happens next what are the team of Avengers still lost how strong is that O's without the Infinity Gauntlet guys we have to give a huge thank you to today's sponsor audible when we are writing theory is a huge part of it is just going to the source material watching the movies over and over again and looking for every little scrap of detail that we can build off of but another major aspect of it is just listening to stories in figuring out how the best ones are told for me this means constantly having a book fired up and ready to listen to it whenever I'm on the move and audible is perfect for that and today they're offering a free audiobook and a 30-day free trial when you go to audible.com slash SCB or simply text SCB to five zero zero five zero zero back to feyo's bravo my friend not many people could have taken out half the galaxy with a little bedazzled mitten but my question for you today is how powerful argue without it I mean the guy seems pretty powerful it almost seems like the only way for the Avengers to defeat him is to literally remove the gauntlet and then actually use it against him right what even if slash when they do that how much of a battle should they still be expecting from Thanos we know for example that Doctor Strange basically allows for them to lose the fight on Titan in pursuit of the single path to victory maybe full video by clicking the card and if that's the case we kind of have to assume that even if they had got the gauntlet off it wouldn't have mattered nanos apparently still would have defeated them just with his own personal set of powers or strength which is kind of crazy like just how strong is this guy and that becomes kind of a tough question to answer because before infinity war we haven't really seen him that much in action or even at all and by the time we see him in infinity war he already has the Power Stone and I do want to be clear here that we are talking about the MCU the movies Thanos and not the comic book Thanos because even just a little bit of research shows us that the movie version of them is like significantly watered down which is crazy to say because this guy is a beast comic book fan knows for example isn't just a member of a species of people that already are super powerful and have superhuman speed and powers and all that he was also born with superpowers with in that species he is the most powerful of the most powerful which was information that actually felt like for me personally cleared some stuff up because if Titans are just like this powerful as a species how are they're not just like purple crazy people running the entire galaxy by the way some of his comic book powers include shooting concussive beams out of his hands laser vision being able to teleport anywhere in the galaxy being a master of the mystic arts telepathy and owning a time machine basically all of the things the Infinity Gauntlet allows him to do in the movie are things he was just naturally capable of the mitten basically just covers all the spaces back to movie thinness I have to say right out of the gate I was a little curious as to why he is so respected and feared by basically everyone I mean just look at M&E MA he's like right-hand man for example his power seemed to be off the freakin charts just simply by thinking and seemingly with no effort whatsoever he can move and control all objects it seems to me that he could have given Thanos a pretty good run for his money right I mean he basically single-handedly takes down Thor and Doctor Strange but so then are we to believe that fans is so strong that these powers could almost have no effect on him personally I think this must be the case because M&E mod doesn't exactly seem like one to hold back on abusing his powers and he quite literally Revere's Thanos in fact for as big of a role as he plays in the comics the fact that he died so easily and so early on was almost similar to as if somebody just came up shot Tony Stark and that was just the end of it he was just dead Thanos just how strong is he we actually end up with quite a few examples to kind of try to figure it out from we find out in Guardians 1 that even without any of the stones he is still considered to be the most powerful being in the universe he's the most powerful being in the if this is the case though why does it take a moose so long to get to this point yeah obviously why are you trusting people like Loki and Ronan once you start doing it yourself it takes you like one day the answer is asgard asgard protects the nine realms and maybe most importantly in need of a leader I mean that place is a legend they make the most powerful horrific weapons at the universe and as long as the forge was being protected by the Asgardians Thanos could not go there to have them build of the Infinity Gauntlet for him but once Asgard gets stabbed in the face by a giant lava sword he barely waits one day to protect us this suggests that as powerful as Thanos is he doesn't believe that he or his forces could take on a fully equipped Asgardian army so at the very least that is one limit of his power which is not entirely surprising after all we've seen Thor almost beat him single-handedly with storm breaker and for that matter Thor sister hella and his father Odin would both be considered more powerful than Thor himself it is true that Odin says is stronger but if you ask me I think that's just some good old fashioned parenting and speaking more to his ultimate potential than his strength inside of that moment either way when hello returns she does exactly what Thanos seems to be too afraid to do which is defeating an entire Asgardian army in a way hella really clears the path for a Thanos I mean she can't return until Odin dies which is one key person that he can't defeat and then immediately shows up and defeats the entire army that he thinks he can't defeat and this may actually be even more fitting than what we see on screen because in the comics Thanos falls in love with death and is trying to woo her and in the movies hella is literally the goddess of death in any case it would appear that Thanos doesn't believe that he is as strong as the most powerful Asgardian specifically I think we can see this with his armor he doesn't actually remove it until after he possesses two of the Infinity stones up until he receives the tesseract he is wearing his armor but as soon as he gets it he sheds the armor and never looks back so at this point I think the only two characters that we could argue are more powerful than Thanos without the gauntlet would be Odin and hella who are both conveniently dead you could also probably argue assert her since he is the one who defeats hella and destroys all of Asgard but also kills himself in the process so with that you could maybe argue with Thor because he defeats Surtur early on but that's with his hammer and we actually see Thor go up against Thanos himself and it doesn't go super well and that's kind of getting towards the end of the list you could probably make the argument for the Hulk like potentially being a match for him but of course we literally see that fight play out and he gets his butt kicked and yes Thanos does have the Power Stone right here but he is definitely not using it against the Hulk and yes we know that there is some possibility that the Hulk is actually Loki in disguise but we can't forget what we hear from ebony mom make him have his fun more at the very least believes that this is the Hulk and believe that it's not going to be any problem whatsoever for Thanos maybe one of the greatest instances that demonstrates the power of Thanos without Lagaan 'ln is right here when a mantis drops in on him and tries to make him go to sleep and he resists yes he is wearing the Goblin right here but he is definitely not using it in this moment we do know that he has to be able to make a fist in order to activate it which by the way I'm totally curious to know what your thoughts are here do you think that all of the Avengers know that he has to close the fist in order to activate the gauntlet or are they just trying to keep his hand open to like remove it because either way it seems like a happy coincidence that like that's their objective here I don't know leave your thoughts down below either way the fact that mantas can't do this here says a lot because at the end of guardians 2 we literally see her use this exact same trick to make an entire planet go to sleep planet that's planet with a P and by a planet I mean a celestial a nearly one-of-a-kind entity that's trying to wipe out all of life in the entire universe although maybe this shouldn't be such a surprise after all I mean we do see that us physically handle the Infinity stones with no problems whatsoever while quill who is also celestial orb we half is barely able to handle one at a time and ultimately needs to recruit others to help him handle it and one of those three is Gamora who was built / trained by Thanos himself so without the gauntlet I think we can safely say that Thanos is the strongest being left in the galaxy except for maybe Thor with Stormbreaker which yes also means that what I'm suggesting is that Thor is absolutely the most powerful of the Avengers except for maybe Captain Marvel we haven't seen her yet basically anyone who might have been able to defeat him a prior to having the gauntlet would be Odin hella an Asgardian army or searcher who all basically destroyed one another the events of Ragnarok could not have worked out better for Thanos and now with the Infinity Gauntlet he basically seems invincible except for maybe one thing sharp objects I can't tell if you're joking or not yeah I'm serious while it seems more likely that they'll somehow remove the gauntlet and use that against him it doesn't seem like Thanos has one glaring weakness to pointy objects seriously what even was the point of all of that armor like we see him take all sorts of blunt force trauma and blaster shots with seemingly no repercussions at all though that for a drop of blood but on the other hand anyone who has any experience whatsoever with Thanos all seem to attack him with the same things when Loki tries to pull a fast one on him he literally pulls out a dagger and tries to go for the throat and Pharaohs stops him wouldn't have been so much more a demonstration of his power to let the blade go right across him and then kill him proving that even that can't harm him but no he stops it he's concerned about it when a Kimura his daughter who he trained it tries to go after him she also uses a knife or a dagger and we even see it work to some degree yes this is all just a delusion caused by the reality stone but either way she doesn't seem surprised by the end result it seems like she knew that stabbing him would work when nebula also his daughter arrives on Titan she too brings a swords to a midden fight actually you know what it's more of a sappy pathan thing to a fight Jesus I can't even do anything right this is clearly wide gamora's is favorite thanks dad regardless there's also Drax which is kind of a problem for the writers because he's always using these giant dagger things no problem though we'll just make sure that he hits him where Thanos is heavily protected his boots awfully convenient strange almost gets it right and uses his magic sword thing but alas is magic just poof Soni goes for it twice with mixed results the first time Thanos is so worried about it that he actually throws a moon at him and the next time he just literally takes the blade from Tony in a scene that makes my stomach suck in every single time I see it and then of course finally Thor hits him in his not head with storm breaker and easily penetrates his skin as I was saying that penetrates his skin seems like he like kind of gave him a boo-boo he like literally cuts his chest cavity open oh that for a No you got me you got me pretty good so to review without the gauntlet yes Thanos is one of the most powerful creatures in the galaxy but over the course of a few days the only people capable of defeating him seem to all be destroyed kind of by each other but then with all of them out of the way he takes the opportunity to grab the most powerful object in the entire galaxy and basically becomes invincible unless you poke him with a knife for a really really big ax right to the chest cavity guys again I want to give a huge thanks to audible for sponsoring this video and remind you that you can get a free audiobook to keep and a 30-day trial by
