The Infinity Gauntlet is no new toy to any of the comic book fans. The gauntlet when has all the six infinity stones, that control- space, time, mind, soul, reality and power is a force not to be reckoned with. Usually, it is Thanos that comes to one’s mind when thinking about the Infinity Stones and the Gauntlet, but Marvel has made the fans meet with a lot of superheroes who at one or the other time have wielded the Gauntlet.
But what if? What if it was not Thanos, nor a Marvel superhero who wielded the Gauntlet, but it was a DC character, could be a hero or a villain who wields the Gauntlet. What would happen then? Who are the better candidates that could wear the Gauntlet and use it better than Thanos? Here is a list of some of them:
Luthor is someone who has had his fair share of great weapons, but what if he had the access to the best weapon in the entire universe. Luthor has been a great villain as well as a really great hero. If her were to use the gauntlet whilst he was a hero, he would easily be able to defeat the bad guys with it, as he too just like Thanos has great intellect, may be greater and the skills needed to improvise. Also let’s imagine what would happen if he had access to the gauntlet while he was a villain? He would easily kill Superman by ‘just clicking his fingers’.
Did you like Superman in the Injustice series? No, no one did. But that is what probably he would become if he wielded the Gauntlet. Extremely powerful with a sense of justice embedded inside him, Supes is someone who will if use the gauntlet which would then heighten his powers and values, will also turn him into an extremely dictative person, always seeking ‘peace’ as he did in the series. It would also make him extremely hard to defeat and would be a curse for the rest.
Brainiac is not a bad guy, just someone who wants to gather all the knowledge of the entire universes and sometimes keeps miniature sized cities for himself, just imagine if he had control over space, time, soul etc. what would he do. We feel he would probably not stop to cities, but get whole timelines to keep for himself. What do you expect from someone who has this level of intellect?
Remember Tower of Babel storyline? Yeah well, that was Batman all prepared with what all could go wrong with the Justice League and how to bring down even the mightiest of the heroes. That was just on case, when he used the Justice Buster and defeated the entire Justice League, that again proved his might. If someone, as planned as Batman was to get the Infinity Gauntlet having the mind stone, that could easily control the likes of superman, time stone that could prove Barry Allen to be useless, Soul stone, which Doctor Fate could do nothing against and so on, he would defeat the league within seconds.
We all know how powerful Doctor Manhattan is. He is an all-powerful being who left Earth to create a new life for himself. What a guy… He can literally create matter, and when having such a powerful thing such as the Infinity Gauntlet, what all he could do is unthinkable. He would probably create whole new universes and create new lives there; this obviously is far better than just merely taking over the worlds.
Well well well, even you knew he was going to be here. No this is not JUST because Darkseid is Thanos’ counterpart from the DC universe, but just look at the guy, he doesn’t just go around on a moving chair, but lives on a firey planet and has an impeccable army that can go to fight anytime he wants them to. Apart from that Thanos just wants to “Court Death” whereas Darkdeid actually wants to take everyone’s free will away from them and rule the universe. He obviously has a far better claim to the Infinity Gauntlet than Thanos. He wins it all, Hands down.
