In the wake of the movie, Avengers: Infinity War, it has been said that Thanos’ master plan does not make sense, and the Mad Titan’s assumption that cutting the universe’s entire population by half will actually kill worlds, and not save them.
THANOS’ PLAN WAS TO KILL HALF TO SAVE THE REMAINING
With the resources being limited and the population putting too much of a strain on its ability to survive, the Mad Titan had proposed a solution-kill half of the population. He had been called “mad” for this idea and was cast out. By the movie’s end, the Mad Titan had done the very same for all the worlds. When Marvel had taken the extra step and had also explained that Thanos had cut life in half – including the plants and animals – a huge problem had come up for the casual fans- the biggest problem was that his ‘master plan’ had been filled with obvious and glaring, problems.
THANOS IS A COMPLETE IDIOT
In order to execute the master plan that Thanos the Mad Titan had proposed, he had to wipe out half of the animals, and plants, and any many other living things. Half of the people with half their food is also a similar problem. But what the Mad Titan did not realise is that he would make the situation much worse. Thanos had succeeded only in killing Earth and did not make more ‘balanced’. Our planet is not the only civilised world to suffer from Thanos’ acts.
AVENGERS: ENDGAME SHOWS THANOS RUINED EARTH?
So, what about life forms that are not just eaten? What about the life forms that provide oxygen? And the bees which allow vegetation? The microscopic life that actually keeps the ecosystem in check? By “restoring balance”, the Mad Titan had done exactly opposite, by punishing all life for the forms that had outgrown the limitations. Considering that the film, Infinity War had ended with many dramatic shots of superhuman beings being dissolved into dust, all the viewers may not think twice about the world that is robbed of billion lives. But as tragic as this loss might be- the human population was reduced by half. What about the shots of Manhattan cloaked in darkness and being empty? It should be home to over 800,000 people.
When it comes to the population on a global scale, the Mad Titan had would set America back in decades. So, then, why has America’s most bustling city become a ghost town and why are power and electric light not there? Whether the movie, Avengers: Endgame actually reveals the desolation is due to the collapse of the economy, and the worldwide ecosystem or humanity falling under the weight of horror, and grief, well, one thing is clear- the master plan by Thanos to “rebalance a grateful universe” has failed.
THANOS’ FAILURE MIGHT SAVE THE DAY
No matter how the superheroes go about solving the eradication of half the universe – be it Quantum Realm science, time travel or even Captain Marvel’s all-new powers – there is the Mad Titan himself to contend with. But even with the actor, Josh Brolin teasing a Thanos showdown, Earth’s mightiest heroes’ greatest weapon against the villain might not really be magic, brute force, or even time travel. If Thanos meets the future Avengers who have seen how bad thinsg have turned out to be after the snap, he may even reconsider his actions.
