The villain who had been teased for nearly six years finally came to greet us in a full-fledged role in Infinity War. We have all established that he is the greatest threat the Avengers have faced. The Russos deviated from the comics to provide us with a Thanos that wanted to save the universe by destroying half of it. This, of course, seemed mature on the Russos’ part. Not much of Thanos’ backstory was revealed in Infinity War. But we can expect more of his past in Avengers 4. It was revealed in Infinity War that the Soul Stone is alive and has a mind of its own. A new theory states that the Mind Stone also has a consciousness and provides compelling evidence to prove that the Mind Stone is the big bad guy of the MCU and not Thanos.
This theory has been coined by the Reddit user ‘zaneman777’. Now we all know that the Mind Stone can be used to control people. This guy provides enough points which will make you believe that the Mind Stone is indeed the greatest evil in the MCU. First of all, after receiving the Mind Stone from Thanos, Loki wages a war on Earth. Thor desperately tries to reason with him about giving up this war but to no avail. “As the audience, we don’t think much but Thor acts like this is a big change.” This theorist believes that the Mind Stone had a hold over Loki. After this, the Mind Stone was in possession of HYDRA and they cracked a plan to wipe out anyone who was or could be their enemy in the future. It was actually the Mind Stone who influenced them to carry out this plan. After this, because of the vision Scarlett Witch (who had her powers from the Mind Stone) shows him, Tony was desperate to build Ultron and it was the Mind Stone he used to create Ultron. That is why Ultron turned out to be evil. And about Vision, this theorist agrees that he is difficult to be associated with evil but claims that the Mind Stone is the reason he was distracted and nearly sent War Machine to his grave in Civil War. Also, this theorist says that the ‘but elevator’s not worthy’ conversation scene in Age of Ultron too was a subtle hint.
This theory says that the Mind Stone is alive and this stone corrupted Thanos’ mind too. This was the stone he had in the beginning. This theory argues that it was this stone that sent him down the path of helping the universe by terminating half of it. Also, during that argument scene in The Avengers, the camera slowly pans out to the scepter. This theorist believes that it was the Mind Stone that was influencing and manipulating everybody's mind at that moment. Another proof, in Age of Ultron, Thor says that in his vision, he saw a whirlpool that sucks in all hope of life and at its center is the Mind Stone. This theory claims that this is also a hint that supposedly means that the Mind Stone is evil.
Well, it is completely possible that the Mind Stone could have a mind of its own. And given the evidence this theory provides, this theory does seem plausible that the Mind Stone could be the real evil in the MCU. What are your thoughts on this? Comment below.
