The MCU’s famous Infinity Stones were a huge part of the movie, Avengers: Infinity War. While the Mad Titan, Thanos and his plans to collect all the 6 stones and wipe out half of the universe is the main story arc, the stones are also a huge part of the plan.
What if Thanos is not the villain and the Infinity Stones are the real bad guys? This is the theory of one of the fans on Reddit. The user, “zaneman777” had posted that it is not Thanos but the Mind Stone who can be blamed.
This theory says that the Mind Stone is the mastermind for wiping out half the universe and it is actually manipulating all the people who possess it. This is a very interesting theory, and there are a few pretty compelling points that the fan has made. This includes how Thor has been troubled by Loki has been in Avengers. Vision is the only character that does not have a negative impact from the Mind Stone.
It does also seem to be a stretch, and it is the latest in a long line of theories. Since Infinity War had released, the fans have been debating about who or what is “evil”. There are a few who are have said that Thanos is actually a hero and this also includes Kevin Smith. He had explained the case for Thanos:
“Controversial choice, Thanos. From a certain perspective he’s a hero,” Smith had said.
“He could have literally wiped out everybody with one snap. I call that mercy.”
Avengers 4 will release on May 3, 2019.
