How and why would Kang / He Who Remains have killed off Iron Man Tony Stark in Avengers Endgame? Erik Voss explains the mysterious connections between Kang and The Ancient One and Doctor Strange, and why the plan that required Tony Stark to sacrifice himself to kill Thanos might have been a coverup to make sure Tony could no longer be a threat to Kang's existence.

    • Everyone knows Tony had to die because his contract withAvengers is over and they cant pay him anymore, since hes the highest paid star in the MCU. Stop pretending like youre so smart

  • I feel like Tony was basically on the way to becoming the next Kang. He woulda eventually went down the same typa path where they start going to other realities maybe shit goes down n then wars happen.

  • I think it could be he who remains setting up a certain path so that only he is the kang who remains like tony stark discovering time travel would allow him to use the tva and its an absolute point in time because only that way of it happening is the only way it won’t make an evil variant.... maybe an absolute point in time is just a way to make sure that, that Kangs timeline remains in complete control. It’s like he’s setting up his wins.

  • Tony's death was so predictable. He's been doing that since the first Avengers movie. If Kang has a plan, I'm sure it could have been executed no matter who did the "un-snap"

  • Kang owned the TVA, he controlled the timeline. Pruning any branch or variant that didn't fit with his plan. He could of pruned Thanos, but he didn't. He allowed the Avengers to time travel because he needed them to invent the technology to achieve it. I doubt he would of cared if Thanos culled half the universe, but the Avengers did and that motivated them to create the technology to bring everyone back. That all made sense. What didn't make sense was why everything changed after Kang was killed. He said he reached a point in time he hadn't seen before, so killing him wouldn't be preventing him from doing anything, everything that happened before should of stayed the same.

  • I think there's more to the rat. There's no way anyone would risk it all on a rat crawling across the console. Maybe Strange or someone else we haven't encountered yet used telepathy or some other means to get the rat to run across the console.

  • the only thing I dont like about the MCU is that everything seems to revolve around tony stark, HE's just a human being, not even the most intelligent human being

    Tobi DedekeTobi DedekeAylar önce
  • I believe Tony knew about the alternate timelines when he and Cap went back to the army base. Tony met his father, his father mentioned a birthdate for his son which I believe was different than Tony's birthday (you can see Tony pause in deep thought) and this Howard Stark was different than the father Tony knew, talking about how wonderful having children will be and wanting to be the best dad. I think Tony and Cap went back on a branch of the main timeline because Loki grabbed the Tesseract.

  • How would Kang know about the avengers if he wasn't born until the 31st century? This is the time travel part I don't understand. How could a person not alive yet control what happens 1,000 years earlier?

  • I think Tony had to die because when Dr Strange looks for the timelines where they win, he says 1 because it's the only timeline with the same roster of heroes, and the same events conspiring however in this one there is a sacrifice for winning. There could be 100,000 universes where they win against Thanos but only 1 out of 100,000 have the same events, and heroes as they have now. He couldn't like look at a universe with the X-Men helping them win which leaves them without Tony dying as it is literally impossible if they do not exist in this timeline. Sorry if this is confusing.

Couldn't nanites accidentally repair Ultron? And like... Spiderman is gonna be in there fuckin around with Tony's tech at some point... And he is in possession of the head of Ultron at one point, right before Mysterio shows up blabbering about a multiverse Mysterio, the Distractor

And he can do it million times because million universes. And he controls all and can remove the changes. -And Miss Minutes knews everythink from every multi verse.
