It’s actually overall fairly baseline. 1, 2, 3, and 6 are the ones that deviate. 1 doing the black and white thing, 2 leans a bit chibi, but not excessively so, 3 is maximum Trigger, and 6 I’ll call Astro Boy aesthetic. The rest while they do have different artistic styles from the different studios are more generic/average in overall appearance, including another one by Trigger.

I believe I caught a Eternals reference in there.

There is a shot while one of them is flying through the sky of a woman sitting on her deck with a margarita. I think that is that little house we see in the trailers.

Spoiler:
Seemed a bit underwhelming with how quickly Thanos got one-shot when he had 5 infinity stones, particularly the reality stone. Also, a bit weird that he was able to get the Power Stone from Xandar and the Space Stone from Asgard without either being destroyed? How does Captain Marvel last that long against Ultron when Thanos didn't?

Don't Infinity Stones only work within their specific universe? I'm not sure if I've gotten mixed up with the comics rules versus that of the MCU.

It depends on what you mean by universe. The infinity stones taken out of the past in endgame are technically now from another universe.

Thanos went in all arrogant. It normally takes a solid fight to bring him down, he doesn’t normally get attacked by a cosmically powered laser right off the bat, especially a weapon that doesn’t need to be drawn or other such indication he’s about to fire, so he just didn’t have the time to use one of his stones. Marvel goes in ready for a fight right off the bat, is likewise cosmically powered herself, and all she actually did was move him to a location that was in the end more convenient for the destruction he wanted to inflict.

I could see him getting the Space Stone off Asgard without a fight, as iirc Loki would have been in charge there at the time and probably just rolled over at the sight of him. Xander less so perhaps, but also their main forces appear to be Air Force, and they kind of fall apart once it’s boots on the ground. However keep in mind his goal is not general obliteration, but population destruction, so it’s also hard to judge exactly what a planet looks like immediately post Thanosing.

Don’t know about the different universes bit. I think I recall that from a somewhat recent issue of the comics, but the movies could do it different. They’re setting it up such that their different universes are just different timelines of the same universe.

Different universe thing comes from a DC crossover where Darkseid gets hold of the gauntlet but discovers it doesn't work because the stones have to be used in their home universe.

Loki (the show) indicates that Infinity Stones do not work in whatever place the TVA operates from, so I guess wherever the Watcher does his watching isn't in the same place/type of place.

Spoiler:
Darkseid is based in a reality without Infinity Stones, so that might be the reason? Ultron is hopping between Infinity Stone based realities.

No,. If memory serves Desaad tells him the stones are useless outside of their own universe. Darkseid then calls the gauntlet useless, tosses it to the ground and buggers off.

Well, everything has turned to crud for our watcher...

Spoiler:
I thought Thanos only had the 4 stones when he confronted Ultron?

Intersting how they are beginning to tie various episodes together and look forward to the continuing story, albeit kind of predictable with Black Widow and the AI hack code looming.

It's worth remembering that Ultron's literal objective was to stop Thanos before he started. On some level that had to be job #1 of everything he did once he got the pesky humans out of the way.

He doesn't. There won't be a 'greater threat'. That Strange collapsed/destroyed/wiped out his entire universe.


The entire universe except for himself. See here’s the thing with The Watcher/s. Having a character who only watches and never interferes is irrelevant as they have nothing to offer the story.


Correct. The Watcher is a PoV character/narrative device.

They're explicitly there for
a) Here is an unbiased, dispassionate observer/narrator with no reason to lie to you
and
b) Here is how we know about the parts of the story no one was there for. (because the Watcher watches)

Only watching and not interfering is _exactly_ what the character has to offer. Its a bit of a silly gimmick, but so is your theoretical all-universes-destroying villain. Not least because its been done (repeatedly) and generally isn't a big deal. The heroes generally don't need some moon guy to come tell them about the sledgehammer coming their way.

Nothing to do with bad writing and everything to do with how painfully, obviously, wrong what you wrote was, and how that it was abundantly clear that wasn't how it was going to go, even at that point.

It's that reason that it stuck in my memory enough to go back and find it.

Yeah, the Watcher Could be used as a mere narrative POV device, but that’s not what they ever do. Not interfering until they think a special exception needs to be made is what they do, like every time I’ve seen a comic with one in it. If the story includes a Watcher, there’s going to be a big threat to time and space. Actually seeing this guy be forced to personally fight was different though, a rare chance to see what they’re actually capable of, as they tend to just do the recruitment thing so they’re not the one technically interfering in their mind in the belief it’s some kind of loophole.
