Ok so talking to my friend after school on Friday and he said that when Gamora said

"he can end the universe with the click of fingers"

According to him it was a reference to the comics and he said he read it from a Marvel page on Instagram.

My question is: Is it a reference to the comics and if yes, which comic is it referring to?

1 Answer 1


Yes, it most likely is a reference. Marvel does find ways to sneak in connections.


The comic issue Thanos: Infinity Gauntlet was a six issue story-arc published in the 90's. In issue # 3 (I guess), Thanos snaps his fingers and instantly kills half of the living beings in existence. He does this as a tribute to Mistress Death in hopes of gaining her favour. It could most likely be a reference to this (image below from the comics).

    He wasn't just wiping out a planet. He was fulfilling his promise to Death for her assistance in finding the gems, that promise being to wipe out half the life in the universe. Mar 17, 2018 at 21:15
  • @suchiuomizu I read it about 5-6 years ago. Sorry for the mistakes. I have made the necessary corrections now. Should do fine. Thanks for pointing it out :)
