The rabbit is correct, and clearly the smartest one.
HERE’S WHY I ACTUALLY LOVED THIS, WHEN I THOUGHT ABOUT IT FOR AWHILE.
“He should have aimed for the head!” is one of the first reactions you want to have when you see this scene, because we know what happens, we know Thanos still has time to snap his fingers and wipe out all those people. But, when it happened, Thor’s response is, “WHAT DID YOU DO!?” because he doesn’t know that.
But more importantly, if Thor had wanted to kill Thanos immediately, he would have. Thor has killed 3,000+ beings in his life, he knows how to go for a kill shot. Even setting aside that he was aiming through a beam of energy conjured from all six Infinity Stones–
Thor didn’t want to.
He wanted to look that motherfucker right in the eye as he killed him. He wanted Thanos to experience what he’d done to Loki and Heimdall and the other Asgardians. Thor wanted to put his hands on Thanos and watch the life drain out of his eyes, just as Thanos did to his brother and his people. Thor wanted it up close and personal.
“I told you. You die for that.”
ONE OF MY FAVE THINGS ABOUT INFINITY WAR–you have Iron Man, Spider-Man, Doctor Strange, Star-Lord, and Mantis, all throwing everything they can, they hit him with their heaviest hits at him, this is ten minutes of constant, non-stop throwing every piece of magic, energy, and heavy debris at him that they can, they use Mantis to put him to sleep, they work flawlessly together and this massive combined effort?
They make a dent. They get one drop of blood out of him.
And then he wipes the floor with them like it’s nothing. Just shakes all of that off like it’s NOTHING.
You really get the sense that this is impossible, that Thanos is just a rolling TIDAL WAVE OF DOOM rolling over them all.
Nothing can stop him. He has four Infinity Stones now, he’s more than halfway there, this is impossible.
Then he has the Time Stone. Then he has the Mind Stone. He’s complete, he’s fully Infinity Stone’d the fuck up.
They are all completely fucked.
THOR ODINSON, GOD OF THUNDER, KING OF ASGARD: HOLD MY FUCKIN’ BEER.
All six Infinity Stones are in him. The most powerful creature in the universe.
AND THOR GODDAMNED ODINSON BRINGS HIM TO HIS KNEES WITH ONE THROW OF HIS AXE.
You’re goddamned right Thanos will never be a god.
FAVE REACTIONS TO THOR SHOWING UP IN WAKANDA:
– Oh, that was hot.
– Hell yeah! I’m really glad to see you!
– Who the fuck is this now?
– AHAHA! YOU GUYS ARE SO SCREWED NOW!
– Oh, fuck, we are so screwed now.
– I AM GOING TO PUT MY AXE RIGHT THROUGH THIS MOTHERFUCKER FOR WHAT HE’S DONE.
