    It is just as a part celestial, Peter might be the only good guy capable of wielding the power of the infinity stones. Since he could barely use one, the glove might ease the strain allowing him access to all of them.

    Yet, who said that the Avengers need the infinity stones to beat Thanos? And besides, there are beings in Marvel Universe that can whoop Thanos, Infinity Gauntlet or not.

    Plus wasn't the whole point that Quill drew his powers from Ego. Ego explodes, Quill gives up his chance at godhood. Would kind of ruin his arc if they just give him new superpowers.

    Prior to meeting Ego his hybrid status only just about allowed him to survive holding one stone. Not sure if he can get up on Thanos' level without dear old dad around.

    Peter barely survived using one gem, so of course he needs the gauntlet to use all of them. It would be an epic use of them. And an epic battle between thanos. And it could offer a permanent solution to the gems.

    Yes Peter drew his power from his father, but I was thinking the stones fouls offer an alternate power source. I was thinking he might even be a potential inhuman, so he could draw his power from the terrigen crystals.

    Someone is leaking screens from Infinity War on reddit. I'm almost convinced it's Marvel because they are not ready to have it released, but want to annoy WB/DC when it should be Justice League that everyone is talking about.

    I have a question about the relations between characters from various MCU shows.

    Obviously the reason that they haven't interacted yet is because of real-world difficulties. That's clear, I'm sure.

    But given that, what reasons could exist for it in-universe.

    Sure, the Netflix shows all are more heavily connected, with Daredevil, Luke Cage, Jessica Jones and Iron Fist all meeting in Defenders and Punisher interacting with Daredevil (as well as being mentioned in the others shows).

    But how about Agents of Shield? The only meaningful connections I see are: the super-bullet from Luke Cage used to attack someone in Agents of Shield, and Micro from Punisher being mentioned by Skye.

    But do you think that Phil Coulson and other Shield agents looked into Daredevil and other people?

    How about people from the Defenders hearing about various inhumans, do you think that happened off-screen?

    I'd like to hear some theories here.

    And btw, I wish we could see Punisher and Ghost Rider interact, but given that they are on two different shows, I see small chance of that happening.

    The Netflix Marvel shows are more or less "real" shows with a movie like quality. Who would want to taint this with the campy fast-food mess Agents of Shield is or god forbid "Inhumans"?

    I did not mean Inhumans the Show, but the inhumans from AoS.

    It might boil down to the simple fact that there are different teams in different studios working opposite one another.

    That's the real world reason, I already said I know.

    I mean, what could be the reason in-universe.

    Well, AOS are zipping all over the place while Defenders and they're individual show bounce around NYC. Heck, the Avenger Tower is there in town.

    Might be because, on the outside looking in, they're small time game.

    I know I am behind the times and am probably going to get ridiculed for it but is inhumans worth watching? I saw like half the first episode before I went out one evening and never watched it again. Thought from the group would be appreciated.
