How old are they in the Halloween episode? 8? 10?

By the end of the recent episode, they're watching Yo Gabba Gabba and look 5 or 6.

I think the everything going backwards/rewind thing was happening to them.

They're played by the same actors in both the Halloween episode and the recent episode, they look the exact same. If they were meant to look younger, they would've used the younger actors from episode 5.

I wonder if in the MCU, crazy alt right people believe the battle and Thanos were fake. They might claim the all female bit is clear proof. Tony Stark is at the heart of the conspiracy theory instead of Bill Gates. They could blame him for half the people disappearing.

In Squirrel Girl they had this guy that was a super hero truther that believed it was all faked.

It was sort of dumb that 8-10 year olds were watching Yo Gabba Gabba, but I'd chalk that up to the writers not having a good sense of what 10 year olds would watch (or someone wanted to just include a reference and didn't care about how realistic it was).

It could also be handwaved away as Agnus/Agatha not liking children (remember, she DID biter a child once) just not knowing what kids of that age watch.

Having more stuff explicitly deal with the consequences of the snap/blip makes me excited. Kind of like when it seemed like the Netflix marvel series were going to deal a bit with the aftermath of the Battle of New York (but instead only made the slightest passing references to other events outside of the show)
I just thought up a dumb analogy for "but why not twice the resources?" never sat well with me.


As far as I can tell, the only aftermath the Netflix series' showed was that it allowed Hell's Kitchen, and possibly other areas of NYC, to transition back to the gritty, crime-filled neighborhood it was in the 70's/80's that every loving NY writer fetishizes over, even if they were too young to actually remember/experience it.

Lol, I remember when the artist & writer of that issue (he was doing both at the time) got super incensed about a newer issue speculating about a character's sex life. When someone pointed out that he had done the same thing (and had gone farther than the book he was mad about) Byrne banned him from his forum.

It really isn't worth thinking about Thanos' plan realistically, because realistically wiping out half of all life on Earth and then bringing it back five years later wouldn't be the mild-to-moderate inconvenience the MCU portrays, it would be an extinction-level event that humanity would be lucky to survive with some fraction of post-industrial civilization intact.

At least since bringing everyone back involved ultimate space magic you can imagine "and also Tony accounted for all the bad things like

I assume that Banner's thought was everyone who was directly killed or taken away by the blip is brought back safely and closely as possible to their old lives.

Also, Thanos could of wished for INFINITE resources since Infinity Stones are magic anyways but he is a bad person so that is why he picked the other route. Like, I wish they had shown that he was kinda of insane before Titan went under because then his whole motive would of been clearer.

You may be in luck there. The Eternals movie is coming in November, if it's not delayed again. The Eternals are a group of immortal beings from various worlds, and the movie is presumably going to have a lot of scenes set in the past, to set up their various conflicts and show who the characters have been over a few thousand years of history. Thanos was an Eternal, at least in the comics. His Dad, the Eternal A'lars, was even name-dropped by Red Skull when he and Gamora went to go get the soul stone. I'd think that Thanos making an appearance in Eternals, in scenes set in their past, would be pretty likely.

I'm hoping we see Thanos in the past, and he's just an awful goth teen.

"Oh, you're Thanos, son of A'lars? Nice to meet you. So what kind of things are you into?"
"I'm into Death, and only Death. She's my one true love, and someday she will love me back."
"Um... that's... er... nice?"

This might be a stretch to think they planned this out in advance, but someone pointed out on Twitter that there might be a Doctor Strange connection to Wandavision.

- In Doctor Strange, when he goes to the "forbidden" section of the library there are two books missing. The one Kaecilius took and an unidentified second blank spot.
- The books in the forbidden section are stored on hexagonal mantles.
- The book in Agatha's basement looks like one of the forbidden books from Doctor Strange.
- The forbidden books in Doctor Strange all have some kind of symbol or decoration on the front without any text and Agatha's book also has a symbol in the same style with no text or title.

Yeah, that thing about her not worrying was odd.
If they go by the "everyone in the hex that comes in and out gets powered up", then there's a chance a lot of people get mild superpowers once they are freed. Like someone pointed out Darcy getting super strength. Perhaps just a bit, enough to break handcuffs.

But I dunno how much of that would be dumb or really bad writing

Those were ridiculous fun comics. I remember an issue where Zeds showed up in 616 Florida and had a super team to fight them made up of The Aquarian, The Conquistador and some other obscure b team heroes. Most of them got munched. What the heck am I half remembering?

I also half remember a comic from around that time where they weren't zombies but just mega rage barbarians like a watered down Crossed. Punisher was like the one guy not affected and he ended up hunting everyone down because he was already full of rage or some bollocks. I'm like the Spaulding Gray of shite comics.

When they made the Zombies comic, some people were legitimately upset because the art style was very graphic and dark, but Marvel acknowledged how dumb it was in the actual fiction of the world and "weren't taking it seriously."

This is the actual canon explanation for why Vision can become a Zombie that some people got mad about.

Doctor Strange came out during the season of Agents of SHIELD with the Darkhold (and when the show still had some very loose ties to what was happening in the MCU), and I remember people pointing to the missing book in that scene as a possible connection then too
