With Thanos eliminating half of all life in the universe at the end of Infinity War, the Avengers are in utter shambles. Captain America, War Machine, Black Widow, the Hulk, Rocket, and Thor personally witnessed most of their allies fade away into the void after the ‘Snap.’ Gamora is dead. Tony Stark is stranded on Titan along with Nebula.
Most of the prominent superheroes and the actual heavy hitters of the Marvel Universe that could actually stand a chance against Thanos like Doctor Strange, Spiderman, and Black Panther are dead. There is absolutely nothing left in the Marvel Cinematic Universe that could now challenge the might of Thanos the Mad Titan. Or is it?
There is a whole new theory in town and it involves Tony Stark taking the reins again and put that big, beautiful genius of a mind that he has to good use. A New Theory claims Tony Stark will invent this brand new weapon to Kill Thanos in Avengers 4!!!
We all know the genius of Tony Stark. You do not become the world’s richest business magnate with only your charms and witty one-liners. He has invented cutting-edge weapons for the military. He is the world’s foremost experts in Artificial Intelligence, Robotics, Biomedical sub-systems, aeronautical engineering, information analytics and a dozen more fields that we can’t even pronounce correctly.
Tony is a genius amongst geniuses. If there is anyone within the good guys’ team that even has a sliver of a chance at matching Thanos and his hyper-advanced intellect in terms of sheer knowledge and command over the field of science, it is none other than Tony Stark. His company, Stark Industries, used to be the world’s greatest arms manufacturer so when we say Tony Stark could be the one to develop this Thanos-Killer weapon, we are not at all kidding.
Pay attention. This is how the theory goes…
Tony’s Iron Man suit has gone through multiple iterations in both the comic books and the movies. In the MCU especially, Tony’s Iron Man suits of armors have grown leaps and bounds in technological advancements, with each suit being a miracle of science and a technology the whole world envies and would give anything to have. It is these Iron-Man technologies that will help Tony Stark create this new Thanos Killer weapon.
The latest iteration of the Iron Man suit is the nanotech armor Tony Stark wears with uber panache in Infinity War. In the comics, it is known as the Bleeding edge armor. The Bleeding Edge armor is probably Tony’s most powerful and versatile of his armored suits. It has several abilities most of which were shown only in brief in Infinity War.
The Bleeding Edge armor is a highly advanced form of nanotech liquid that stays inside Tony Stark’s skin when not in use. When called upon, the suit will literally form around his body like we saw in the movie. The suit can heal itself, control other forms of technology by hacking into their systems and create any form of technology or WEAPON that Tony Stark commands it to. Notice that we stress upon the word ‘Weapon’. This is going to be a crucial aspect of our theory and probably the only thing that keeps it glued together.
Let us explain to you in detail how Tony Stark’s Infinity war Bleeding Edge suit functions. That suit of armor is made up of millions and trillions of nano-sized robots. These robots stay inside Tony Stark’s body and only come to his aid to form the Impenetrable Iron Man armor when Tony commands it to. It draws power from the Arc Reactor on Tony’s chest and thus has a virtually almost endless power source.
Since the Iron Man Bleeding Edge suit is made up of these nano-particles, they can be broken down on command and restructured to from any other weapon. Tony Stark uses this ability to make several different types of Energy based weapons during his fight with Ebony Maw in New York and again we see the most of it in the fight between Tony Stark as Iron Man and Thanos on the planet Titan.
From what we have seen, the technology of the suit is endless and is only limited by Tony’s imagination. Whatever Tony thinks, the armor creates out of scratch much like the Green Lantern’s Power Ring, but instead of energy constructs, the suit makes Tony weapons out of its own nano-robot supply. And that is how its technology replication ability will help Tony forge the Infinity Gauntlet.
Tony still doesn’t know exactly how the Infinity Gauntlet functions. He only saw it in action recently in Infinity War. After Thanos retreated back to safe space and away from the clutches of the Avengers, Tony has ample time on his hands to research the weapon by himself.
We should also remember the fact that Tony Stark can also take the help of Thor to learn more about the Infinity Gauntlet. Eitri, the Dwarf King of Nidavellir who made the Stormbreaker for the God of Thunder also made the Infinity Gauntlet when forced to do so by Thanos himself. Some valuable input in this regard could be vital for Tony to remake the Infinity Gauntlet from square one.
Since the Bleeding Edge armor is the armor Tony wears in Infinity War, the abilities would also be quite similar, including the technology replication parts. But what is this technology that exists within the Marvel universe that could possibly help Tony Stark singlehandedly kill the Mad Titan, a being revered to as a God by his followers?!?!?
The Infinity Gauntlet of course!! Only the Infinity Gauntlet has the power to defeat Thanos and neutralize him for good. But how does Tony Stark get his hands on the Infinity Gauntlet since Thanos has escaped to the middle of nowhere? How will Tony Stark find Thanos now? As it turns out, he doesn’t even have to!! Remember that Avengers 4 is strongly reported to feature Time Travel elements.
Once Tony and the rest of the Avengers scatter through the time stream to get hold of the Infinity Stones to stop Infinity War from ever happening, the only task that would remain is combining the stones’ powers like the Infinity Gauntlet did in the movie.
Tony Stark is a genius who is well capable of reverse engineering the Infinity Gauntlet tech. If he did use his own Bleeding Edge armor suit’s nanotech abilities to create the Infinity Gauntlet from scratch, this could literally turn the tables on the Mad Titan. But Tony will still not be strong enough to use the Infinity Gauntlet by himself. He is a mortal after all. Maybe this is where Captain Marvel comes in??? Who knows!! Only time will tell.
Avengers 4 is set for release on May 3, 2019. Whether Tony Stark uses his own armor’s advanced nanotechnology to remake the Infinity Gauntlet to defeat Thanos is yet to be seen. It is indeed a good and well-rounded theory. Given the fact that Avengers 4 will feature the Infinity Stones again and the Avengers will be racing against time to collect the Infinity Stones to undo the actions of the mad Titans in Avengers: Infinity War, this theory seems all the more plausible.
The latest movie to be released under the Marvel Studios banner is Avengers: Infinity War. The official film synopsis for the movie reads:
Iron Man, Thor, the Hulk and the rest of the Avengers unite to battle their most powerful enemy yet — the evil Thanos. On a mission to collect all six Infinity Stones, Thanos plans to use the artifacts to inflict his twisted will on reality. The fate of the planet and existence itself has never been more uncertain as everything the Avengers have fought for has led up to this moment.
