The Avengers are coming. And they are bringing the collective wrath of the entire universe with them to the doorsteps of Thanos. The mad Titan will never know what hit him. Right now, he is basking in his newfound glory. The Infinity Gauntlet is still his to wield and the Infinity Stones are still his to control. But things are about to get ugly for him. There was a new rumor a while ago that Thanos will get his ass handed to him by an Avenger that will swoop the Infinity Gauntlet from under his nose and use his own weapon against him. That rumor has been found to be true! And the Avenger that will wield the Gauntlet – the most powerful weapon in the history of creation itself, is none other than Captain America!! Presenting – Captain America confirmed to wield the Infinity Gauntlet in Avengers: Endgame!
To be precise, it is all just one big theory. But it is so freaking fact-based that we had to give it due credibility. Thanos wielding the Infinity Gauntlet in infinity War makes sense. He has been longing to do that since a decade in the Marvel Cinematic Universe. The Avengers do not even know how to use the Infinity Gauntlet, even if they get their hands on it.
Captain America, being a mortal human being, is all the more under qualified to wield it. We know that an Infinity Stone cannot be wielded by a person of mortal heritage. You have to have something extraordinary in your blood to wield the power of one infinity Stone, let alone six. So how is Captain America going to do it, you ask?
Fan theorist x/XanPerkyCheck claims that Captain America is the most eligible of the Earth’s mightiest heroes to wield the Gauntlet against Thanos, no matter how unfavorable the odds are stacked up against him. The theory goes something like this – There is a reason Captain America was able to hold off on his own against Thanos in a physical tug of war in Wakanda when the villain landed there using the Space Stone. Thanos has beaten the Hulk in a one on one battle. There is no way Captain America could have handled the strength of the Mad Titan. But this is where the theory comes in.
It claims that Captain America was able to stop Thanos in that scene because he was deemed worthy of the Infinity Gauntlet by the Infinity Stones itself. Remember objects in the Marvel Cinematic Universe tend to choose their wielders. Mjolnir is one example. The Soul Stone is another. If they can exhibit such traits, why not the most powerful weapon in the Marvel Universe?
Captain America could stop Thanos back then not because he was strong, but because he was deemed worthy by the Gauntlet itself, that decided on its own not to cause any harm to the Avenger. Interestingly, Captain America has actually wielded the Gauntlet in comic books. If the movie ends up showing a similar outcome, it is all the more reason for us to be thrilled. This theory might be an acquired test for many. But the more you think about it, the more plausible it becomes. Captain America may not be the strongest or even the fastest Avenger, but he is the worthiest Avenger out there!
