Thanos Was Ill in Infinity War?? This Groundbreaking Theory Alters Everything!!!

Ever since Harry Styles appeared in Eternals as Starfox, fans are confused about Thanos. Thanos was a character that has been a part of the Marvel Cinematic Universe throughout most of the Infinity Saga. There was no indication of the details that have now come out regarding the character ever since Eros made his debut in the franchise. One of the most essential details amongst the others is the fact that Thanos was an Eternal and it changes how we saw him. While the creators might have been able to give some explanation for how it all works out, there are other theories that make a bit more sense. A new theory states that Thanos Was ill in Infinity War. This changes everything that we saw in the movie and our perception of the Mad Titan.

Starfox In MCU

Eternals was the one addition in the MCU that had the most divided reception from the fans of the franchise. But one of the most surprising things about the movie was definitely the post-credits scenes. While the mid-credits scene showed the possible origin of Dane Whitman as the Black Knight in the MCU as he goes to wield the Ebony Blade with a cameo from Mahershala Ali’s Blade. This was something that was quite expected except for the Blade cameo considering Dane Whitman’s past was teased in the movie. But the end-credits scene took things to a whole new level by introducing two characters in the movie we hadn’t seen before.


As, Thena, Druig, and Makkari are headed in the Domo to look for the other Eternals, two characters end up appearing in the ship. First, we get to see Pip the Troll enter through a portal with a pint in his hand which almost drips due to his landing. Following him we see Harry Styles enter as Eros/ Starfox and Pip introduces him as the brother of Thanos. Eros goes ahead and addresses the others as his fellow Eternals and that confirms that he is an Eternal himself in the franchise. But this reveals another major detail regarding the franchise with the fact that Thanos is also an Eternal considering he is Eros’ brother.

Thanos Was Ill in Infinity War?

Avengers: Infinity War explored the character of Thanos and it actually gave us some insight into his character. Here we saw that the character has a reason for his plans as he didn’t want to see the universe suffer like the way his people did in Titan. The idea of bringing balance to the universe took its birth right here and he decided to get hold of the Infinity Stones to go through with these plans. He does manage to successfully go through with the plans but this was a rather aggressive way to go through with his plans. There is a possibility that there was a completely different reason for Thanos to have made this move.


The Mahd Wy’ry Theory

In Eternals, we are introduced to an illness that Angelina Jolie’s Thena suffers from called Mahd Wy’ry. This is a form of dementia that is caused due to a vast amount of memory that remained in one’s head due to immortality and the constant memory wipes. As we saw in the movie, Thena often forgot where she was in time and would end up attacking anyone near her no matter who they were to her. This was triggered in response to sudden noises or threats made to the character where they would end up entering a trance-like state.


According to a theory on Reddit, Thanos might have been suffering from Mahd Wy’ry. This means that his ideas of overpopulation ending planets could be something that was caused by the witnessing multiple Emergences over the year. Due to the memory wipes, Thanos might have only remembered how it ended up destroying Titan, and instead, he might have witnessed various other planets having the same fate. This would practically be a much better explanation for his madness. But at the same time, it actually gives him an interesting amount of depth plus at the same time, it makes us realize how misunderstood his character was in comparison to what everyone else thought of him.

This theory might not work under the condition that Thanos has the deviant gene in him and it would prevent him from getting Mahd Wy’ry. Plus, at the same time, we didn’t see the effect of it in his eyes as we did in the case of Thena when her eyes went white before she became violent. But this could be averted with the idea that over the years it might have taken its full effect on him. We will only find out more on this for certain when we get to explore Eros’ character in the future of the MCU.
