+jose garcia Not true. Possessing all the Infinity Stones gives the wielder ultimate power over all things, even gods. Thor and Loki are gods, Odin is a god, and Thanos could defeat them with the stones, even snap them away and bring them back if he wanted. The Cosmic Entities created the stones after the Big Bang to hold all aspects of the universe within the six stones. Therefore the stones could create life, as Thanos wanted to do in a reboot of the universe. Ego also wanted to reboot the universe, and he was a god, and had that power. But even Ego or a Cosmic Being would not be as powerful as someone with all the stones.

Why do people keep saying "just double the universes resources"??? Physics tells us if the universe was any different 0.1% one way or the other it just wouldn't of sustained itself would have fell in on its self or flew apart if the amount of mass was more or less. Or is it just me?

Odin dying definitely had something to do with it. But in regards to finding the stones, you’ll notice in infinity war that as soon as Thanos got the space stone, he immediately stated that “there are two more stones on Earth” Space stone basically gave him a google maps of the cosmos.

Here’s my theory Thanos didn’t knew where the infinity stones where and if he took them will he be able to survive the power. Once he saw future Thanos succeed, he was sure that he can do it so that’s why travelled in future to get it more easily and fast. He didn’t wait, he was already looking for them but when he got a offer of having all the infinity stones at one place he went for it.

He could never attempt to retrieve the Stone's before Odin's death because he needed the Gauntlet and his attack on Nidavellir would have been stopped by Odin. I really love the video though.

Thanos thought other pawns would bring him the orb, scepter, etc...and they failed or betrayed him and died or killed them so he had to say ,”fine I’m doing this myself.” Marvel could have used the comics infinity quest story line but it was more exciting to see Thanos battle the Avengers directly for the stones for dramatic tension . Instead of just betraying cosmic entities it was more intense for him to bring armies to Earth and battle the Avengers face to face for more compelling films. It can kind of be compelling to plot against enemies or for power in the shadows, but bringing it to the enemy is a more bold thing to do . Marvel Disney is using the comics as an idea rough sketch, but they have the freedom to use it to better suit cinema. So for instance if In the comics he just tricks a space pirate it could be boring, but in the movies Thanos beating the crap out of hulk, holding Thor’s head in the palm of his hands, and then killing Loki is more dramatic than simply tricking folks outta stones.

Well the reason he waited so long was because they had to make the other movies first. Starting a film franchise with "Avengers Infinity War" would not have worked.

It isn't that he's a jerk for as to why he didn't just double the universe's resources. In reality and in fantasy, creating something is hundreds of times more difficult than destroying something. I can build a Lego tower for 3 days and it only take one kick to destroy it. The same thing applies here. The Infinity Gauntlet is better at destroying than creation. Is that really so hard to believe? It killed Tony Stark for bringing people back to life that Thanos killed. Same number of lives altered, different consequence. The infinity gauntlet has limits. Contrary to the name.

Doubling resources would only increase the population and cause food run out in another century or so not to mention how our big population causes us to pollute and deforest. So no doubling food is worse logically, but is better morally

Welp, Thanos's core motive in the movies doesn't make sense at all, so the writers could've had him wait 5 years to get the stones for any reason they wanted? Destroying half of the universe's population completely at random to bring peace...yeah, even a 5 year old could figure out that's not gonna work. Have him NOT want peace or something, just don't make him a complete failure of a philanthropist.

The psychic and spiritual damage would be massive. That many people don't get killed without their being an impact. And I'm not talking about the heart-ache, heartbreak, and loss that people experienced. That leaves a mark on people. And the loss would leave a mark on everyone. Loss that's so sudden, will damage people. B So what to do about limited resources? Maybe create a planet where people can come to together to come up with solutions. Different planets and different cultures. Cause people don't just consume, they can come up with ideas too. They're creative, they create. And who knows, there's a 50/50 chance that someone, or people, who could have gotten together, from different planets, could have come up with solutions. Look at Star Trek. In the MCU maybe people, on that planet I mentioned, could have come together and came up with unlimited energy. And create replicators, with their own unlimited power source. That way people could have unlimited resources. You could have household replicators, and industrial size ones. And even with the Snap, people will repopulate. Which means subjecting to them to the cruelty and terror of snapping way half the population again and again, or just one Snap and people repopulate. And then it happens again, and for what? The horror and terror they felt. The sadness and heartbreak, and the mark it'll make upon people for losing loved ones, and for all the sudden death. And the mark it leaves on the Universe itself too. The very universe. Because that much death will leave a mark. So instead of Snapping everyone away, create a planet where people can come together. And then the people from different planets can meet create a way of infinite energy that people can have in something like replicators in Star Trek. So everyone can have one. No matter who they are, where they are, and how much money they have. So even the poorest person can have one. Star Trek replicators, each with an infinite energy source, household size ones and even industrial size ones too. Which means infinite resources. Cause each one would have it's own unlimited energy source. So people could live and thrive and people wouldn't ever run out of food, medicine, clothing, etc. * Thanos was NOT Right. He was wrong, and the Avengers were right in stopping him. *

Thanos wanted people to be grateful for what they had, by taking half of the population thus sparing resource decline. Doubling the resources doesn't teach that. It teaches, that things will just come to you. It also promotes the growth of population, thus speeding the decline of resources. Even if you double them. This is what Thanos means by FINITE RESOURCES. Eventually, they will run out. Earth is not inexhaustible, but it seems that population growth will continue to steadily increase, especially with more resources. All species would spread and consume, like wildfire. But even fire needs oxygen to "live", and there's only so much of that too go around. Just like Thanos says: "too much to one side... and... too much to the other..." Less oxygen, the fire will burn weakly and be put out. More oxygen and the fire grows, immensely until it exhausts its' supply at an alarming rate. It was never the resource that needed to be changed, it was what was utilizing the resources that needed to be balanced. Recognizing that, Thanos took action.

Why does he look like an unvaccinated Captain America? Thanos knew he had to wait in order to collect the stones.
Anthony Jordan movies and more
In hindsight he could have simply double the resources if he mentioned he will wipe out the rest of the universe and create a new one he just wanted to kill and he wanted to sell Noble about it
I personally think that he waited to give Gamora time to live. Unlike Thanos who's hundreds of years old Gamora is a semi normal life form. He met her and put his plans on hold to give her time to live. In the end she had to die for the soul stone but she had lived a decent amount of her life at that point between meeting Thanos and Quill.

Whether you're reaching or not, sounds about right. Thanos was never an all knowing being, just had ridiculous father of gods (Titan) strength and advanced military tactics. Finding the mind stone in itself must have taken years (unless it was a handed down relic on their planet although I doubt it considering they would have used it to restore resources sunthetically and or other means). Other than that he was just like everyone else searching..you ask a guy who knows a guy who knows all 9 realms

He gave Loki the mind stone because it’s obvious they didn’t originally plan for it to be within the scepter. There’s a line about how it’s powered by the tesseract, and it’s even the same blue, not yellow like we know the mind stone is. It doesn’t matter whatever excuse we or the directors come up with, putting the mind stone in the scepter was a retcon so we can’t think to hard about it. If it was planned for the scepter to be an infinity stone, it wouldn’t have been the same color as the tesseract.

I'm pretty sure Gamora or Nebula said that he wouldn't go for the stones until he knew where they all were. I wasn't until Nebula sneaked on to his ship to try and kill him. Thanos said she nearly succeeded, but after she was captured, he was able to check her memory files to see that Gamora knew the location of the final one (Soul Stone). Now he could go for the stones all at once to give everybody else less time to try and stop him.

Also another interesting point defect out is that in Captain America the first avenger when the red skull picked up the tesseract it started burning his body and it created a Time hole and it sucked him in but in endgame when Tony Stark picked up the tesseract nothing happened at all that's why he was worthy enough to wield The infinity gauntlet cuz he gave everything to stop what was happening

Thanos waited for Odin to die for hella to die and the sorcerer apprentice because Odin could stop him hella wanted to take over the universe she wouldn't have allowed fanos to wipe out half the universe she wanted to rule over the other nine realms while Thanos snapped was complete she wanted have rule over anyting and The sorcerer's apprentice would have never have given the stone to Doctor strange therefore calculon the 14 million possibilities where Thanos probably knew it one of those possibilities he was going to get the stone. cuz the one thing you have to ask yourself is how the hell did Thanos know to use the time Stone dr. Strange learned how to use it by reading a book where did Thanos get that book how did he master all the stones if you've never had them before
