Quote:But there was the question of who Warlock gave the reality gem to. Warlock kept that confidential for awhile, but it turned out to be THANOS since Thanos was of course familiar with the gems and understood the dangers of the reality gem.
Quote:Hang on: So...Warlock gives his greatest enemy - an enemy with already formidable power, an enemy whose avowed intent is to destroy all life - a device which can change all reality? Someone WROTE that? And editorial passed it?
Someone can correct me if I'm wrong but I think there was something said that the reality gem shouldn't work on it's own. It needed the other 5.
That later story point about Thanos recreating Marvel may have invalidated that plot point but I seem to remember the gem being inert unless used with the others being mentioned.
Quote:I think...I think I see a flaw in Warlock's plan.
Quote:The Reality Gem can warp reality on a level far greater then the cosmic cubes. Thanos was rejected by Death and feeling very tempted to use the Gem to warp reality so that Death would always have loved him. However he wanted to test the gem and wanted a conscience to talk him out of the plan so he uses it to legitimately revive Captain Mar-Vell.
Quote:So...Thanos is actively looking for someone to talk him out of the plan, and on Thanos' command someone turns up and talks him out of the plan? Hmmmm.
Quote:I'm not saying it COULDN'T have been the real Captain Marvel, but it sounds a bit suspicious. Bit of a self-fulfilling prophecy.
Quote:Wouldn't it have been easier - not to mention a whole lot safer - for Warlock to have found someone else to take care of the gem? Or just dropped all six into six different black holes?
IT was later stated that using the reality gem without the others to act as stabilizers for it was dangerous, not impossible but very dangerous.
