Thanos probably still wins, thor failed to kill him, and he can just protect himself using the space stone

Thanos.

Thor can't beat Thanos in a classic fight with more than one stone, that's kind why he sneak attacked him.

Not sure what Strange can do with the TS in this fight, so he loses as well.

The team stomps. Strange could solo him seeing as he was able to match him in a fight with these infinity stones plus two other ones. If Strange has Thor’s help and Thanos only has the power and the space stones then he loses.

Thanos, he can just open a portal whenever Thor’s throws stormbreaker. And Thor could fall for it back, but that’d take a few seconds. In that time, thanos kills him with a power stone attack. Strange gets one shotted.

Why wouldn't he be able to? A power gem blast is more than enough. Even though it was never shown to be able to, there's plenty of reason as to why it can. Strange's only advantage is the time stone, but since thanos has that too, it doesn't really matter. He gets killed by a power gem blast as well.

@matthew660: Did you even see the movie? Thanos tried doing that and Strange just sent the blast to a different dimension. He was even able to give Thanos a run for his money when he had four infinity stones. Strange could just restrain Thanos with the crimson bands while Thor kills him with Stormbreaker.

@mister_surreal: if i didn’t see the movie how would I even know what stormbreaker is? And thanos obviously was holding back on the guardians and the avengers. If he really tried I think everyone knows they’d be wiped from existence. When Thor hit him with stormbreaker he wasn’t on guard. And even then he was only hurt by it for a few seconds.

If they both have the time stone, they can always undo what the other one did to win... it would go on forever.. but considering Thanos doesn't have all six stones, and Strange put up a good fight, and Thor has Stormbreaker, that can hurt Thanos.. I'd say that Thor and Strange win more times out of the infinite time stone loops... But Thanos could pull several wins.

@mister_surreal: "He was even able to give Thanos a run for his money when he had four infinity stones."

No he didn't. Strange got beat in 40 seconds and Thanos only used the power stone to counter Strange's attacks. Strange by on screen feats can't harm Thanos, he needs BFR to even win and Thanos already showed that doesn't work.

"Strange could just restrain Thanos with the crimson bands"

Thanos threw Strange off of him when he used the Crimson Bands, it's not gonna work.

@darthvaderrocks: @matthew660: This thread says "in character", meaning that Thanos is going to job just like he did in the movie. And in the movie, Strange did get beaten after 40 seconds of fighting Thanos, but the fact that he was able to give him that much trouble means that he is an actual threat when Thanos is holding back. Thanos didn't just use that power stone but also used the space stone to create a black hold, which Straneg was able to turn into a bunch of butterflies. And the only reason why Thanos even got out of the crimson bands so quickly was that Thanos used the soul stone to locate which one was the real Strange, a stone that he doesn't have in this fight. I'll see you a link to a video that even shows you which stones that Thanos used on Titan.

@mister_surreal: "but the fact that he was able to give him that much trouble means that he is an actual threat when Thanos is holding back."

He never gave him trouble, he never even viewed him as a threat. If you get beat in 40 seconds and your opponent looks amused by one of your counters then you never put up a fight. You were simply passing time.

"Thanos didn't just use that power stone but also used the space stone to create a black hold, which Straneg was able to turn into a bunch of butterflies."

Yes, and that's not the only space stone attack Thanos can use. He could crush his body, freeze him in place, make himself transparent, use shields, etc. Strange has no counter to any of that.

"And the only reason why Thanos even got out of the crimson bands so quickly was that Thanos used the soul stone to locate which one was the real Strange, a stone that he doesn't have in this fight"

Those weren't the Crimson Bands. The Crimson Bands were what Strange used on Thanos while everybody else swarmed him. Thanos literally launched Strange off of him.

"I'll see you a link to a video that even shows you which stones that Thanos used on Titan."

I've seen IW over 10 times, I know which stones Thanos uses lol.

Thanos literally had each stone in the movie for short amount of time. Anyone who expects him to use stones to the fullest aren't really thinking and encourage bad writing. His experience and skill is mostly in h2h. The stones grant greater potential, but as we've seen in previous movies are not easy to use. Not to mention previous owners usually didn't do more complicated attacks that Thanos did. In fact, Thanos showed against Dr. Strange that he's good at using stones when he was in danger. Iron Man wasn't really physically dangerous to Thanos, so only one stone was used. And it's already confirmed that Thor hurt Thanos due to surprise, which again shows realistic attention by the writers.

@cyberpunkcop Is this in the city? Or a rural area?

Team takes it mid-diff. Low diff in a urban area because Thanos can't counter the Mirror Dimension as easily as he did on Titan.

Thanos can't counter the Images of Ikonn without the Soul Stone.

He can't reality warp, and I assume the Time Stone favors Strange since he has more feats with it.

As for the Space Stone, Thor has Bifrost Recall and Strange has Sling Rings. Thanos does have the TK advantage, but he didn't use it on Strange until he countered the IOI spell and disoriented Strange with the feedback, which probably implies that Strange could counter if he got TK'ed beforehand. As for Thor's counter, SB did resist a beam from the Space Stone, so it would be reasonable to let the PIS flow since it was made with prep from Eitri against his previous IG creation. And Thor already has better TK over his SB anyway.

That said, since it is in-character after all, this is truly a battle of Power Stone Thanos vs Thor and Strange. Thor will no-sell the bolts, since Stark tanked them, and Strange can block the bolts with Mirror Dimension. Thanos will get staggered by Thor's lightning and the Crimson Bands of Cytorrak and by Strane's superior skill with the Time Stone, which in my mind justifies the team's mid-diff victory, which is primarily due to Thanos's own physical and energy resistance and due to the broad TK advantage that the Space Stone affords him.

@rajjar: "Thanos can't counter the Images of Ikonn without the Soul Stone."

Um, yes he can. He used the Soul Stone to find the real Strange but he used the power stone to just overload all the duplicates.

"He can't reality warp, and I assume the Time Stone favors Strange since he has more feats with it."

Thanos also has the time stone so it doesn't really favor Strange nor Thanos.

"Thanos does have the TK advantage, but he didn't use it on Strange until he countered the IOI spell and disoriented Strange with the feedback, which probably implies that Strange could counter if he got TK'ed beforehand."

That doesn't apply anything. Strange has never resisted TK so why would he do it now? Because the writers wrote for Thanos not to do it? And unquantifiable space stone beam.

"Thor will no-sell the bolts, since Stark tanked them"

He never tanked them. The blast was destroying his armor. Thor's body has no power stone resistance either. He cries like a girl when he gets an attack from it.

"Strange can block the bolts with Mirror Dimension."

Doesn't solve anything.

"Thanos will get staggered by Thor's lightning"

And he will get back up within a second. He no-sells lighting. Lightning cannot hurt Thanos. This is simply a proven fact.

"the Crimson Bands of Cytorrak"

And Thanos will fling them off just like he did in the film.

Also what counters do any of them have to being frozen in place?

@rajjar:

How do you know that? IIRC, all of the duplicates glowed orange, not purple, when Thanos activated the AOE wave from the PS.

He can only reverse time, while Strange can also reverse time and create loops.

That doesn't apply anything. Strange has never resisted TK so why would he do it now? Because the writers wrote for Thanos not to do it? And unquantifiable space stone beam.

In-character.

And as for the Space Stone and the IG blast being unquantifiable, it is still useful to prove that the Gauntlet can't harm Stormbreaker, since Eitri prepped it to do just that. Reducing that to quantified value doesn't change anything, as nothing about the Space Stone nor its feats suggest destructive output. As in, you can't quantify the output of any destructive stone besides the Power Stone, no "unquantifiable" is a cop-out for 5/6 stones.

He never tanked them. The blast was destroying his armor. Thor's body has no power stone resistance either. He cries like a girl when he gets an attack from it.

Pretty sure tanking is different from no-selling. He still had plenty of nano-particles to use from the shield when he shifted the shield back into his suit.

And unless you are suggesting Thanos can replicate a surface busting attack on Thor like he did the moon, I'm tempted to err towards the distance attacks being under GOTG level, as shown by in-character Thanos.

Doesn't solve anything.

It tanked the bolts.

And he will get back up within a second. He no-sells lighting. Lightning cannot hurt Thanos. This is simply a proven fact.

But he will still get staggered on a bigger level than he ever was in Titan. And I wouldn't put the NLF on the lightning - that bolt barely scratched the ground it touched, as it wasn't even a sky bolt.

"and Thanos will fling them off"

And Thor gets his chance to either cleave him or less likely bifrost him.

Also what counters do any of them have to being frozen in place?

Time or Space stone?

@rajjar: "How do you know that? IIRC, all of the duplicates glowed orange, not purple, when Thanos activated the AOE wave from the PS."

No, you can see the power stones AOE attack hit everything. He can destroy everything. Here's clip:http://imgur.com/a/pIG8MjG

"He can only reverse time, while Strange can also reverse time and create loops."

Thanos can create loops as well. It's the effin' time stone. It doesn't favor either of them if they both have it.

"In-character."

What does that even mean when it comes to Thanos? His only out of character moment is when he threw the moon. Every other time he was calm.

"And as for the Space Stone and the IG blast being unquantifiable, it is still useful to prove that the Gauntlet can't harm Stormbreaker, since Eitri prepped it to do just that"

No it isn't because that's headcanon. All Eitri did with Stormbreaker was break the mold. Like literally that's all we saw him do it. It has no magic to it. Sh!t the handle is literally Groot's arm. And you said 5/6 Stones don't have destructive powers so you are admitting they are unquantifiable. They can't destroy anything so we have absolutely zero idea what he was doing.

"Pretty sure tanking is different from no-selling. He still had plenty of nano-particles to use from the shield when he shifted the shield back into his suit."

Yeah and? It was still destroying his armor. Iron Man just flew away before anything else major happened. Thor can fly too but he isn't tanking it if he gets hit. Nobody is in the MCU.

"It tanked the bolts."

And that didn't really solve anything other than let him stay in the fight for 20 more seconds.

"But he will still get staggered on a bigger level than he ever was in Titan. And I wouldn't put the NLF on the lightning - that bolt barely scratched the ground it touched, as it wasn't even a sky bolt."

That's an assumption tho. Thor had a lightning beam on Thanos for 3 seconds at least and he no-sold it. Thanos has no anti-feat against lightning so to try and make up things as to where he will get hurt by it is dumb. And Thor was bloodlusted in IW so that even makes the no-selling more impressive.

"And Thor gets his chance to either cleave him or less likely bifrost him."

Not really since it takes Thanos 1 second to fling Strange off.

"Time or Space stone?"

Space stone. Why do so many forget the first ever use of the space stone by Thanos is him literally freezing Loki in place. If and when Thanos does that this fight is over. One power stone blast at Strange kills him since Strange got knocked out by a little throw from Thanos. And then he can simply walk over to Thor and fry his brain with the power stone. It's so easy for Thanos because of how much variety he has.
