Remember Iron Man’s big snap in “Avengers: Endgame”? The one that brought back billions but cost him his life? Well, Marvel dropped a tiny clue that maybe, just maybe, another Avenger could’ve done the job and walked away. Buckle up, true believers, because we’re diving into the multiverse to unravel this mystery!
In the latest episode of “What If…?”, Captain Carter (Peggy Carter with the Super Soldier serum, remember?) wields the Infinity Stones without turning into crispy bacon. No burns, no blasts, just Peggy chillin’ with the universe’s most powerful gems. This got fans buzzing: if Peggy did it, could Captain America have pulled off the snap too?
Hold your horses, super soldiers! Remember Doctor Strange? The dude who saw millions of futures and picked the one where Iron Man snapped? Yeah, he probably had a good reason. Let’s break it down:
Peggy vs. Tony: Sure, Peggy rocked the Stones like a boss, but she had some advantages. Her Super Soldier serum probably gave her extra oomph to handle the cosmic juice. Plus, the Infinity Gauntlet she used was different, built by Tony with Stark tech. Maybe it absorbed some of the Stone’s power, making it easier for Peggy to handle.
Tony’s Unique Suit: Tony, on the other hand, went old-school. He slapped the Stones on his own Iron Man suit, no fancy upgrades. That thing was fried after the snap, and so was Tony. Remember how his arc reactor overloaded just using one Stone? This time, he channeled the power of all six. Talk about pushing your engine to warp speed!
More Than Muscle: But it wasn’t just about strength. Doctor Strange saw that Tony, with his genius mind and tech-savvy skills, could figure out how to use the Stones without getting zapped. He even built a special containment unit to absorb some of the energy. Peggy might be tough, but could she whip up such tech in five minutes flat? Probably not.
So, while Peggy’s snap proves another Avenger might have survived, it doesn’t mean Iron Man’s sacrifice was in vain. He was the right hero for the job, the one who could pull off the impossible with his brains, brawn, and a whole lot of Stark ingenuity.
Does this mean Captain America is secretly alive in another universe, sipping cosmic cocktails with Peggy? We don’t know for sure, but hey, that’s the beauty of the multiverse, right? It leaves the door open for endless possibilities, even if some paths lead to crispy heroes.
Remember, true believers, Iron Man’s sacrifice was about more than just survival. It was about saving the universe, even if it meant giving up everything. So, while we can geek out about who else could’ve snapped, let’s also raise a glass (or arc reactor) to the hero who did it, the one who showed us that even ordinary guys can do extraordinary things.
So, there you have it, folks! Marvel’s little multiverse nudge that got everyone buzzing. Remember, it’s all about speculation and fun, not rewriting history. Let’s celebrate Iron Man’s heroism while keeping an eye out for what other surprises the multiverse might hold. Excelsior!
