Poll: Did Thanos block this attack with the Power Stone? (39 votes)

Yes 38%
No 62%

Was having a discussion and a lot of debate went down over this feat. I’m pretty sure most people lean a particular way on this, but I wanted to put a poll out. Ty for the input

It appears he did, but by how the directors confirmed he whipped the hulk without it, safe to assume he would have been fine without doing that.

More likely he was setting up his next attack, which was taking that thing apart in an explosion. Power stone hasn’t really been shown to deflect or reduce power/kinetic energy, so it’s fair to say he’s planning ahead and not actually using it to block. If he were to try and dodge it, space or reality would make more sense, further supporting he’s doing something else.

But the eye test makes it appear shielding is what’s happening, either way could be right.

Actually what was the scene just before this? Was he charging up an attack on strange and turned at the last moment?

?? I don't know, if thanos did indeed block then it shows weakness tbh. To be scared of some metal while he's out there destroying moons.

Power stone hasn’t been shown to be able to block anything or amp ones durability.

If anything he was gonna blow it up but it came down too quick

I meant to vote no but put yes instead.

He used to power stone to destroy the building, yes. But he still tanked the attack. The power stone doesn’t magically shield you or increase your durability. That argument is made by salty fanboys who make fun of MCU characters for being weak and then debunk all of their feats.

@mr_shazam0920: You can start camping on this thread. The usual DCEU wankers will start coming in to argue in some way or another that Thanos needs the power stone to survive that attack. Its funny that none of them ever tried out-arguing me.

Oh BTW guys, I don't take battles and feats discussion seriously.

@skrskr: @havenless:

I think you guys are right. The Powerstone wasn't shown to block and he was likely trying to destroy it or attack. It does seem to have a short charge up time. If he was blacking it like that it would have stopped upon impact of the gauntlet imo.

i think the point is he could've made a hole in the middle and he didnt take any impact.

@tonymartial: If he did he would have destroyed the building immediately. It took a moment for him to destroy it.

Also, literally right after Star Lord says to Tony “yeah only if you wanted to piss him off” when Tony said it was a piece of cake.

The Hulk in Avengers 2 crashed through a building and had it all fall on top of him with no damage, not a scratch. Now all of a sudden Thanos can’t handle this attack.

Like I said, the lowball and mental gymnastics on this site.

It’s possible that he was attempting to destroy it, but it fell on top of him before he could do so.

Never thought he was trying to block it. There's not really much reason to believe so and this feat doesn't really matter much for Thanos considering Iron Man performed a much better version of it minutes later. And Thanos wrecked him.

@amcu: I had a fairly strong opinion on this earlier, but @oreoghoul: made some pretty dang good points, so I’m trying to figure out my position on this myself. That being said, if Thanos wasn’t trying to block it, why would he activate the power Stone?

That attack from iron man caught thanos completely off guard. That light from the power stone was for an intented offensive move against strange which he didn't get the chance for

I'd say its more like he was raising his arms to attack Iron Man with the power gem. Notice that he's actually pointing his fist at Iron Man the same way he does when he was about to kill him after winning their fight. He didn't raise his arms in defensive position. He didn't create a shield like he did against Wanda. Infact I don't think the power gem even creates shields.

Does it really matter? He saw something coming, knowing it was an ambush and decided to attack it. That seems the most logical conclusion based on his actions.

That part is debatable. Tony koed Hulk with a single punch after the fact. Even before the building feat, Tony knocked out one of Hulk's teeth.

@heatforce: He had not a scratch on him. He came out of the rubble ready to go, but upon seeing the devastation he realized what he had done and calmed down. Tony KO’d him with a surprise punch. The Hulkbuster already showed its striking power, which is no joke.

Also, that scene was used as a transition. How else was the fight going to end?

I would say getting a tooth knocked out is scratch. True the scene was used as a transition but imo they should have just showed Hulk turning back into banner instead of punching him, which lead to a ko. Now Hulk got stronger in ragnarok but I just dont think using pre-rag Hulk is a good way to explain Thanos' durability for the scene in the OP.

@heatforce: What I’m trying to illustrate is that a feat like that is not unprecedented. Hulk had a similar feat with no apparent or long lasting damage and it was established very early on that Thanos > Hulk.

This is a villain with almost 20 movies and 10 years of build up. We need to apply maybe a little bit of logic here as well. He should be formidable. That’s all. I’m not saying he’s Doomsday level, but he’s a force.

In that same scene, Star Lord, who has knowlege of Thanos, tells Tony that the building attack will only piss him off. He knew it wasn’t something that would hurt him.

@heatforce: The WODC guys constantly bash the MCU characters and say how weak they are, but on the other hand, they never allow the MCU guys to have any feats. It is ridiculous.

I think he tried to destroy it, but was too late. He got buried underneath the ship and tanked it.

@xzone: he just activated space stone to pass trough. Even if he just let it drop on his head, i dont think it would have done much. I think tanking and no selling hulks blows, thors SB lighning blast etc are more impressive than the ship dropping on his head.

He was genuinely pissed it landed on him which to me says he wasn't actually trying to block it but destroy it. It fell on him super fast as well so he never got the chance to unleash the attack until he was inside the ship. Also if he really wanted to block it he would have used the space stone to create a shield or straight up halt it.
