with Token Drew
What’s up everyone, its ya boi Token Drew and we are back with another edition of Talkin Sh*t, the series where I talk sh*t and smoke sh*t. WE ARE FINALLY HERE. THE DAY BEFORE THE OFFICIAL RELEASE OF AVENGERS INFINITY WAR, WHICH MEANS TONIGHT IS THE EARLY SHOWING! CAN YOU FEEL THE HYPE?!? THE EXCITEMENT!? WE MADE IT EVERYONE!
Yes ladies and gentlemen, War is upon us and now you have the knowledge to help you understand what it is you are witnessing tonight and tomorrow while watching this milestone event.
So as of now, I have told you about all of the stones individually. Let’s talk about what happens when they come together. Lets talk some sh*t about the Infinity Gauntlet.
Originally, it was nothing more than Thanos sticking the six Infinity Gems onto his left gauntlet, giving him complete control over the universe. The six gems; Time, Power, Space, Reality, Mind and Soul gave Thanos the tools he needed to accomplish the task at hand: earning Mistress Death’s affection by wiping out half the life in the universe. Which Thanos does with a snap of his fingers, erasing heroes, villains and innocents alike.
The power of the gauntlet is intense, allowing the wielder to shape reality to their whim. Every time that it shows up, it puts the entire universe at risk. So aside from using the aforementioned gems/stones, the gauntlet grants it’s user nigh omnipotence. Even the combined might of almost the entire celestial body was no match for the Infinity Gauntlet. That included Eternity (the living embodiment of space), Lord Chaos, Master Order, Galactus, Mistress Love and Sire Hate, Kronos, Death and Uatu the watcher. And of course, Earth’s heroes stood no chance against the awesome might of the gauntlet.
When I first heard of the gauntlet, I didn’t understand its power until I read the Infinity Gauntlet comic arc and was blown away to see such power depicted. From turning Wolverine’s adamintium skeleton to jello, turning nova into a pile of cubes, freezing time, creating life, altering reality on a large scale to making the celestial bodies into puppets, that gauntlet is no joke! In fact, the only beings that are above the gauntlet is The One Above All (God) and The Living Tribunal (the judge of the multiverse). One could argue that the Beyonders are above it as well since they were strong enough to kill the Living Tribunal, but that’s a different discussion for another day.
Other characters have used it but the item is synonymous with Thanos. I won’t get into detail over it since I have a Thanos article coming tomorrow, but it was put together by him and his goals.
The MCU version, I have no idea about until I see the film tonight. From the trailers, I know Thanos throws a moon at the heroes but that’s all I know so far.
Notable Users- Thanos, Nebula, Adam Warlock, Black Panther, Magus, the Council of Reeds, Tony Stark, Captain America
*Tony Stark was the first human to actually use the gauntlet.
*The Infinity Gauntlet can only work in the universe that it’s from: this was discovered when the Marvel vs DC crossover happened and Darkseid got a hold of the gauntlet but it wouldn’t work in his universe. Later years in Marvel, three members of the Council of Reeds, who are a collection of Reed Richards from different universes (read Johnathan Hickman run on the Fantastic Four, holy sh*t is it dope) had gauntlets from their own universes.
Well friends, that’s it for now! Tonight is the night we have all been waiting for. Stay Tuned for a review discussion of the movie and tomorrow’s article on Thanos, the Mad Titan. Thank you for reading, I’m ya boi Token Drew and this has been Talkin Sh!t for wakeandgame.com. Live up, Smoke Out and Game On. Peace.
