@jose garcia or maybe they just have a greater comprehension of what we see as a lack of feelings or lunacy that allow them to make the decisions that shape the universe

one of them is nova confronting thanos on xandar and probably more scenes of his past with gamora and scenes of him decimating planets

People still stuck in the whole "why didn't he double the resources"...because energy; you cannot create nor destroy only transfer, now lets indulge in the whole double theory; if he did, the problem will still remain because now with more resources population would grow exponentially at a higher rate, so back to square one.

Kinda laughed at the double resources over killing half of life. What? So, many missing variables for that to work out remotely good. Double resources could actually be worse than killing half of all life. Double resources would make the monopolies even more powerful... Majority of all life do not have the means to obtain their own resources. We're not even allowed to our own power source. We have to go out and purchase said [resource] from someone providing that [resource] with the permission from [elsewhere]; who is overshadowed by [something else], and god forbid there is a [someone/something] behind that.

Well he did have to wait for ragnarok at the very least because to control the stones he needed the gauntlet, to get the gauntlet he had to invade the forge world, if he had invaded before the destruction of asgard he would have been faced with the united might of asgard, a force that would give even him pause. Ego and the Ancient one were just good timing

You left out the biggest detail. Thanos knee where all the stones were EXCEPT the Soul Stone. He didn’t know where it was and he probably had been waiting to act until he knew FOR SURE where all 6 were. When Nebula gets captured by Thanos and he goes through her memories and sees that Gamora found the stone, he then knows it’s finally time to act. His entire plan depended on his intuition that Gamora would try to kill him on Knowhere sp that he could capture her

Thanos patience, acceptance, and intelligence and that's what makes him "the most powerful being in the universe" to quote guardians. Take away that and then he's just a skilled Hulk with a sword so when he says fine ill do it myself, the 3 years is nothing for him considering he's waited centuries and he had to plan out and find some of the other infinity stones as well soooo

Thanos wanted to wait till Odin death and The Avengers to break up after that it would be easier to get the infinity stones rather than fighting all of the Avengers together with Odin which could be harder as Thanos doesn’t have the power to kill two Gods such as Thor and Odin

Doubling the universe's resources would have just prolonged thanos's conclusion because population growth is exponential. So he thought reducing the base would give them much more time

I know Im very late but i have an explantion Thanos wanted to get the stones when they were vulnerable Thanos took the space stone when Asgard was destroyed He took the reality stone after the attack on The asgard ship and the attack on earth So that he would not have any *Serious* threats Thanos (imo) Wanted to seperate all of them so that it would be easier to take the apart

Well, the Russos confirmed he started his conquest in Infinity War due to capturing Nebula and seeing her memory files. This means he STILL waited from Age of Ultron to the end of Ragnarok. But, clarified that once he started going after the stones, he knew everyone would try to stop him. My theory is that Thanos waited for the events of Ragnarok to take place. Think about it: 1. Odin dies 2. Asgard and it’s armies were decimated by Hela and Surtur 3. The Tessaract (Space Stone) was left completely defenseless The deaths of the Ancient One and Ego had to also be a factor in his plans, considering their power. Lastly, on Earth, SHIELD was already destroyed and the Avengers were divided because of Zemo, so Thanos was alse VERY lucky in his pursuit of the Stones.

The gauntlet is the answer. He needed it to use the stones and since the only place that could make something that powerful was protected by Asgard couldn’t get to it and it was not worth risking al the effort that would be needed for the stones if he could not even use them once he had them and it would just create more time for the big armadas of the universe to rally up against him which he of course wouldn’t happening

The comment about doubling the resources is incredibly retarded. Firstly, even if you double the resource, it wouldn't change anything besides making the powerful richer. There is no communist like structure on Earth. Secondly, the reality stone restructures molecular integrity to change its form. So you require resources to make resources. But 99% of the universe is just dark matter or vacuum so resources is already incredibly limited. Thirdly, Thanos have to have thought of this. For god sake, he proved himself to be an intellectual powerhouse like Tony.

Ego died 4 years before events of Infinity War and Thanos attacked Xandar the moment he realised Asgard is destroyed or Odin is dead. Ancient One died before Odin so Thanos would have destroyed Earth before Xandar if he was really afraid of Ancient One. Moreover Thanos attacked Asgard only when Odin died. But he attacked Earth even when Ancient One lived.

Stop saying he could have just doubled the resources, populations increase EXPONENTIALLY so doubling the resources would not have nearly the impact of halving the population.

Thanos wanted to keep his whole execution plan as a secret and a surprise ( Remember when heimdal biofrosted Hulk , thanos says this was a mistake). He wanted minimum troubles And now was the best time, as he knows about the location of Soul stone and Odin died , Asgard got destroyed, it was easy to get one more stone from Loki. He did not see Dr. Strange and Vision as a major problem, otherwise he would send not his men to retrieve those two stones from the earth, he would go himself. So this was the best time for him to execute the plan.

I used to theorize about how odin's death was a catalyst for Thanos's timing, however I think the answer is much simpler. I believe he was waiting to make a final move until he knew where all the stones were. The soul stone was the key. He was unaware of the soul stone's location until Nebula was captured. Once he knew how to get the soul stone's location, the entire plan went into full effect.
his big purple ass was stuck on his throne

Doubling the resources wouldn’t work because it would have population expansion constant but he could make a ton more like 999999999999999 times the resources

I like how so many of the video's think Thanos can just double all the resources. What if the Gauntlet still can only apply to the laws of the universe meaning, matter cannot be created or destroyed. Only changed. Just a thought instead of assuming :)

The answer to the question is simple. Its because Marvel and Disney wanted to make the series long enough to maximize profits from the series and build up suspense while keeping the audience entertained at the same time.
