We all know Thanos specifically chose to snap to use all the Infinity Stones to wipe out half the universe. Even everyone else who gets an Infinity Gauntlet seems to have to snap in order to use all the Stones.
Did it have to be a snap in order to use all the Infinity Stones? Why wasn't it a clap? Or something else? I get Thanos chose to do a snap but if he had chosen to do a clap or something else, would it have worked?
The reason I'm not entirely sure is because Tony builds a gauntlet as well and he's not working off Thanos' gauntlet but he comes to the same conclusion-snap to use all Infinity Stones, granted this may have been easiest, but I'm still curious if it needed to be a snap or all gauntlets were just designed that way.
I'm specifically asking for lore on using all 6 stones. I know there's duplicates out there about how specifically the gauntlet is activated, but I'm asking if, in order to use all 6 infinity stones, a snap, by any party, whether it be Thanos, Hulk, Tony, other celestials, etc, is required on any gauntlet (or any device using all 6 stones), or if that was simply a choice by all parties that have used all 6 stones thus far.
