Following the events of Avengers: Endgame we have 3 examples of users wielding all 6 Infinity Stones, either through the Infinity Gauntlet or the Nano Gauntlet. First we see Thanos who is strong enough, with the Gauntlet, to take all of them at once. However, he isn't human or even a normal Titan so is somewhat ruled out by the premise of your question. Even ...

The Black Panther (T'Challa) is able to transform into a were-panther in the Marvel Mangaverse In Marvel's Mangaverse designated as Earth-2301, T'Challa is able to transform into a Were-panther. In Marvel Mangaverse Issue #4, when Doctor Doom attacks the UN summit, T'Challa is shown to transform into a were-panther (image below). However, this is supposed ...

Initially, The Beyonder actually did not know anything at all as he was a Cosmic Cube simply existing as an entire universe. He was "a creation complete unto himself." He literally was an entire reality. All knowledge about anything other than himself was simply incomprehensible to him - the existence of other beings was a surprise. When Molecule Man's ...

He snapped! The clue lies in the way how the Avengers found out where Thanos was in Avenger: Endgame. Thanos used all the six stones twice in Avengers: Infinity War, second time during the snap, and the first time minutes before the snap while he was trying to block Stormbreaker. RHODEY: That's cute, Thanos has a retirement plan. STEVE: So where ...

Obidiah’s plan was always “a new world order” as he said. Remember he left a resignation letter with Tony before taking his heart-reactor. That was the alibi. Later, in a power suit he was in the arc reactor room when the battle began, and they cracked the containment glass. The reactor started to overload. Tony reminded Stane that “you know when that ...

He used the Infinity Gauntlet with the Infinity Stones in it to destroy the Stones. Not only is this the way he uses to use all the Stones at once but we have physical evidence that this was the case. When the Avengers go to Titan II in hunt for Thanos after they detect the Stones are used again we see the toll it has taken on Thanos. We see now, his left ...

I think you've fundamentally misunderstood the argument between the Ancient One and Bruce Banner. When the Ancient one shows the effect of removing a stone from the timeline, there are 2 separate branches of time created - Main Timeline continues as normal once the Avengers return to it, and the Alternate Timeline starts off from when the stone was removed. ...

It's not really a HUD, but in Avengers #201 (1980), Iron Man's mask is depicted as having a little digital clock by the right eye slit: That particular story was adapted from a short story published in The Marvel Superheroes the previous year. In the story, the time displays when Tony thinks the word "time".

The Punisher blows Wolverine's face off in Punisher #16 (2002). While the ears are unharmed, the nose was blown off as well, so no adamantium there. Probably not in the ears as well. For the record, adamantium cartilage does exist (partially), but I don't know of it being present in Wolverine; in fact, I'm pretty sure it's the contrary. From an archive of ...

Passage of Time is not a Problem when one is a Time Traveler As asked, the question operates under the impression that how much time passes in the alternate timelines while each Stone is absent is relevant. One cannot forget that the Stones are being returned by a time traveler. No significant time needs to pass in any given timeline's Stone-less state. ...

The very first time is actually in the Model 1 Mark III suit, the gold one, before his first red and yellow one. I believe this suit first appears in Tales of Suspense Issue 40 (April 1963). However, it is only revealed in the Iron Manual (1993) that this suit does indeed have a heads up display in it. Click images to enlarge. They projected ...

Probably the first true HUD was in Iron Man #277, published February 01, 1992. This trend continued in Iron #278, published March 10, 1992, with an ever more detailed HUD. It wasn't until 2012 that the HUD in the comics explicitly matched the one we see in the MCU films.

That would very much depend on how you define “destroy”. Thanos in Avengers: Endgame reduces the Infinity Stones to atoms by using their power against themselves. Natasha Romanonff: Where are the Stones? Thanos: Gone. Reduced to atoms. Avengers: Endgame However, right after that he states he destroyed them this way. Bruce Banner: You used ...

If Thanos was unable to destroy them when he had the power of all of them available, then there isn't likely any greater power available in the universe to destroy them. Note that according to the directors Thanos did not manage to destroy the stones: ...according to the Russos, the Infinity Stones aren't actually lost: "Thanos only reduced the stones to ...

A few things really: Corvus Glaive is one of the Children of Thanos, he is a powerful individual. For example, he has good combat skills being able to somewhat go hand to hand against Cap. He also seems to have a good regeneration ability considering he recovers from his stab wound pretty quickly. The element of surprise. This is a massive point and one ...

They were possibly private military contractors and not S.H.I.E.L.D agents In Season 4: Episode 22 "World's End", after everything that happened with Aida and the Framework, Fitz decided to turn himself in as Mack tells everyone that the authorities were coming for them.

Well, first off, SPOILERS!!!, but all is revealed later in season 5 anyway. Enoch is an alien called a "Chronicom", as are his team (I believe - and we come across other Chronicoms later, both friendly and not). They keep an eye on Earth and, yes, can interfere in order to prevent an extinction-level event, because that event also disrupts the wider galaxy ...

I think you may have a couple facts mixed up but this should be the scene in Captain America when "Red Skull" walks over to the relief sculpture of Ygrassil and immediately pushes the snake's eye on the third root (Midgard). A box pops out, and "Red Skull" opens it looking at the Tesseract. The tower keeper warns him that "that is not for the eyes of mortal ...

In Fight or Flight Marlena Olin played by Teri Reeves was part of the Pilgrim's hit squad sent in to kill Frank and recover Rachel, who Frank was using as bait. Because Frank had planned and set up in the room adjacent to his own, the hit squad was reverse-ambushed and Frank shot Marlena in the knee, taking her captive. Later in Trouble the Water they were ...

The hammer's spell was put on by Odin and he seems nice but whoever Odin thinks is worthy can hold it. At one point in time Odin was a tyrant conquer of Realms but he stopped at 9 and was a noble king. He had an army and he killed a lot of people so if he thinks that's worthy then that's him.

It could have very well been CGI. As mentioned by the VFX technician involved in Captain Marvel, Chris Townsend in his interview with the Huffington Post There are about over 100 shots of the cat in the film, 70 or 80 of them are CG. So convincing was the CGI that, [according to Townsend], even the movie's directors Anna Boden and Ryan Fleck couldn't ...

Because the van was likely "sold" to Scott as the founder of X-Con Security Consultants considering it was their property now. You can see the logo for X-Con on the side of the van when Scott goes into the Quantum Tunnel at the end of Ant-Man and the Wasp and it's also visible when Scott goes up to Avengers HQ in Avengers: Endgame as we see in the security ...

After the damage, Agent Coulson took it to the Theta Protocol Facility and began to repair it in case there will be an emergency. Reference: Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D Season 2.

This One-Above-All certainly. The One-Above-All is Omnipotent (all powerful), Omniscient (all knowing), and Omnipresent (everywhere). He is the most powerful being in the Marvel Multiverse. He exists beyond space and time. His power is unlimited, incalculable and immeasurable, he cannot be damaged in any way and he has control over all forms of energy. ...

The goal of the mission was to get the Tesseract, as they were trying to beat Yon-Rogg and Starforce there, they were presumably trying to be in and out as fast as possible. They head straight for the Tesseract and grab it. It is only at that point that they realise they aren’t alone and Talos starts his call. At this point they are now too distracted with ...

In the MCU the largest “object” we’ve seen a Flerken swallow was when Goose swallowed the 4 or 5 Kree soldiers all at the same time. In fact the only other instance of a Flerken swallowing something was Goose with the Tesseract which is a lot smaller. I assume the object has to get through the Flerken's throat. Why? ...

In the MCU we don’t know, we have very little information on Goose and Flerkens in general. What we do know is that Wendy Lawson, aka Mar-Vell, had Goose with her. She seems to be somewhat knowledgable of the animal and knows more about her than the others, such as Goose taking to Carol. Wendy Lawson: Goose likes you. She doesn't typically take to people....

Unknown where exactly he got it from but the Skrulls has been on Earth for a while at this point. To the point where this one in particular had managed to slip in alongside Fury as Coulson without anyone else noticing. It’s not implausible for the Skrull to have gotten a pistol from any number of sources: a store, stolen from someone, pinched off another ...

Playing the scene below at 0,25 speed, I'm not entirely sure Skrull-Coulson actually made that weapon. He seems to take it out of his jacket, sure, but as we didn't have eyes on him all the time he could as well have grabbed it from, say, the glove compartment; fits with the person he's impersonating, to be prepared to fire during a chase. If there's ...

In short, yes In Issue#1 of Original Sins, Uatu, the Watcher is murdered by a clean shot through his head. He was shot twice and his eyes were stolen (image below). Original Sins Issue#1: Who shot the Watcher? Although it isn't mentioned who all are capable of doing such a heinous crime, Nick Fury does say that there are quite a few people who could ...

Watchers are nigh invulnerable to everything in the known universe. Uatu himself batted his cousin Aron the rogue Watcher to spare the Earth's solar system from destruction. As the two immortals battled "a brutal and most savage war is concurrently waged across the infinite rivers of reality." (Fantastic Four #400: Even The Watchers Can Die ) Neither ...

Yes, they can and have been. Original Sin: "Original Sin" is a 2014 comic book storyline published by Marvel Comics. The story features Nick Fury and the Avengers investigating the murder of Uatu the Watcher, only to suffer trauma from what they see in his eyes. (emphasis added)

This question considers that no matter how evil a villian is, heroes in Marvel never seek out to kill them Are you sure you're reading the same Marvel comics as everyone else? Let's see, Captain America once used his shield to sever the Red Skull's arm, which caused him to drop a Cosmic Cube and be destroyed (being the Red Skull, he came back eventually),...

Jormungandr in Norse mythology is normally conceived of as utterly evil (like his brother Fenrir). The Marvel universe follows more or less along with this (as it does with most of its secondary characters drawn from Norse myths). These cruel and fairly animalistic spawn of Loki (unlike some of Loki's other, more intelligent offspring) are not deemed ...

In the original Marvel comics, the Fenris twins were, in fact, incestuous. This characterization will definitely be downplayed or altered to appeal to modern audiences. But yes, the Fenris twins were incestuous.

No, the strongest Dark Elf of the realm of Svartalfheim was Algrim the Strong. Algrim was born over 5,000 years before the present day and served Malekith loyally through the war of the Nine Realms. From the Marvel biography of Kurse: Becoming stronger Thor had fallen in love with Lorelei due to a love potion she had given him. Malekith the Accursed, to ...

The arc reactor in his body is the one that is powering the suit. He doesn’t need an extra one when that is already doing the job. The one in his body is only essentially an electromagnet and doesn’t use up much power so there is a lot left available to use to power his suits if needed. This is made somewhat explicit it Tony’s initial escape. Yinsen: ...

The worthiness enchantment on Mjolnir was put on it by Odin, and Odin died before Stormbreaker was forged, so without the worthiness enchantment anyone could lift Stormbreaker.

No story directly says how much she learned from her relationships however she has had access to very powerful and intelligent people. It is not difficult to imagine the Aunt May from the comic books has tech skills. I would say her association with tech geniuses do give her precedent. In Miles Morales' universe Peter Parker is dead but Aunt May is still ...

I know this is a very old post, but since it is the top result in the Google search I think it's important to notice that now, with the House of X reboot, Magneto is officially an Omega level mutant. Marvel also defined more clearly what exactly is an Omega level mutant in House of X issue # 1 (2019): OMEGA LEVEL MUTANT: A mutant whose dominant power is ...

A few reasons come to mind and it was probably somewhat of a combination of all of them but we never get an explicit answer to this. Surtur would have been monitoring Asgard Surtur cannot die until he fulfils his destiny of Ragnarok and destroying Asgard. It seems likely that since this was his ultimate destiny he would have been waiting for his chance to ...

I assume Surtur was being held at bay by Odin himself, and Surtur realized Odin wasn’t keeping him at bay anymore if he was alive again (although still lacking eternal flame\full power). Then he probably looked around the Realms, saw them in chaos, with no Odinforce energy emulating from Asgard, or even military action from Asgard. He put it all together ...

J.A.R.V.I.S. in the MCU is an artificial intelligence that stands for Just A Rather Very Intelligent System. However, this is a handy acronym as J.A.R.V.I.S. is named after Edwin Jarvis a butler for the Stark family and father figure for Tony. We don't see much of Jarvis in the MCU films, although he does appear in Agent Carter, and only get a glimpse of him ...

In universe there are two explanations I can think of with the first being the most likely. He picked it up When Thanos is fighting with Thor, Thor throws Thanos’ sword away, the camera spins around a bit before Thanos sends Thor flying so it’s not exactly clear where he lands. It’s very possible that Thor lands near the sword. After being hit by Mjolnir ...

In most live-action media, the Spider sense is depicted as a "heightened awareness", which is triggered by external changes in Peter's surroundings. The Raimi trilogy made this largely seem like increased proximity cognizance; we'd hear a sound that would let us know the sense is working... but for Peter, his brain would speed up as thousands of individual ...

His master had some candles that allowed for time travel. They would send a target creature to another time, and the target had until the flame went out to return or be lost forever in the other time.

In the 1981 cartoon Spiderman, Peter was shown using under arm web wings much like a "gilder suit" to slow his descent down. This was in a battle with a radioactively powered Sand Man. I was looking for a clip of it, but all I could find was a fan-made condensed episode on Youtube. Full Disclosure: The clips do have where Sand Man throws him off the roof of ...
