I like the idea that the tragedy of killing half the Universe will bring people together (something Falcon and Winter Soldier seems to agree with). Doubling the resources will make people more wasteful.

It's a bare fact that populations of any given species cannot keep doubling (or more), given that resources for it are finite. This is even more true for all life in the universe. Therefore, it follows that some kind of control is necessary at a certain point. Thanos just acted out this logic; props

What I like about thanos is he has the ultimate hero complex. He thinks of himself as this misunderstood hero that knows what s best for everyone but in reality everything he does is in service of his own ego and is incapable of excepting any reality in which he his wrong.

The thing that makes Thanos both sinister and understandable is that his want for destruction does come from what seems like a a genuine cause. It’s a cause that many in the real world agree with, so it makes his relentlessness feel real.

thanos in a warped way is trying to make the universe a better place. basically thanos serves as the ultimate answer to what do we do when the bigger universe nick fury warned tony about gets too big

I obviously don't agree with him, but I feel like the movie does a brilliant job at showing us how a charismatic eco terrorist works. They did such a good job that some real people bought his BS.

I don't care about his philosophy, but Thanos and Vulture are the only scary MCU villains, (Killmonger is not scary at all). I love how Endgame shows Thanos is a hypocrite.

I loved him as a villain, but I voted this way because I do think he could have used the infinity stones to solve his problem in many other ways. He could have created more planets or whatever he wanted. He could have figured it out without wiping out half the population, which is temporary anyways.

Yes, he could use the gauntlet to create infinite amount of resources or something, but that wouldn't teach anyone a lesson in his eyes. For him, it's all about proving that his people should have listened to him.

That's because the Infinity Gauntlet was made for a crazy evil death obsessed villain, it wasn't made for villain whose out for the greater good, it doesn't work for the character they gave us.

He's elevated by Brolin's performance, but on paper he's generic as hell, if you did this character in a comic book or a novel nobody would find him interesting. Brolin is able to bring a sincerity and passion to a frankly goofy motivation and philosophy. His motivation is a combination of clichés.

Compared to comic Thanos, MCU Thanos is a pale shadow. Didn't buy the motivation. I know impressing Lady Death would have been tough to pull off in the movies. But kill half the universe to... do what? What was his point? A survival of the fittest thing? Not clear. It's too crowded? Not buying it.

His motivation isn’t the problem so much as his sadistic nature doesn’t mesh with the motivation that gave him. You can’t have a “greater good, but bad methods” villain, while also saying he has fun beating people and is an overall sadist. Seems like they wanted it both ways, which hurts character.

That's most of my issue with him. You've gotta explore the sadism or totally retcon it once you decide it's a necessarily evil motivation. Maybe he lost himself along the way and is corrupted by his power, even before the gauntlet, but we're not told that.

Also his the ends justifies the means motivation doesn't work with the infinity gauntlet, it's a device that can literally do anything.

He seems to have done everything wrong. He has undone all the good that president Trump did that put our Country on the right track; Why aren't more people up in arms with the way he has handled things?
