I was doing research to figure out why the Reality Stone was made into the Aether in the MCU. I think that the Reality Stone was made into the Aether as a reference to the Collector's Etherion Armor from the comics, as Aether and Etherion both come from the word ether and the Collector owned the Reality Gem in the comics.Read more >
James Gunn has said that there is a big Easter Egg hidden in Volume 2. So I'm going to try and find it. This is my second theory.
While we see the Iron Lotus, the club on Contraxia, we see a number of neon lights depicting dancers. Most of the lights feature robotic dancers, but the one over Howard the Duck is different.
The one above Howard features a dancer that doesn't seem robotic and has a tail. My first guess was that it was Tigra. From what I found, in the comics, she left Earth to travel in space with Starfox. She was also a friend of Moondragon, who in the comics was Drax the Destroyer's daughter.
I also thought it could be Hepzibah. In the comics, she was a member of the Starjammers who were a group of space pirates that targeted th…Read more >
James Gunn has said that there is a big Easter Egg hidden in Volume 2. So I'm going to try and find it. My first theory is that there is a reference to the Visual Distortion Effect. In Marvel Presents Volume 1 Issue 6, the Guardians of the Galaxy have an encounter with Karanada. When the Guardians fly near Karanada, they suffer from Visual Distortion Effect, which causes the appearances of the Guardians to distort due to Karanada's energy field. In Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2, Yondu, Rocket, Groot, and Kraglin suffer something very similar to Visual Distortion Effect when they make hundreds of inter-planetary jumps on their way to Ego.Read more >
James Gunn has said there is still one big Easter Egg that no one has found in the first Guardians of the Galaxy movie.
One of my theories is that Eson The Searcher is the Easter Egg.
As I was looking for the missing Easter Egg, I did some research on the characters in the first movie.
One of the most interesting things I found out was that in the comics, Peter Quill's paternal grandfather was named Eson .
In the movie, the Guardians are shown footage of a Celestial named Eson the Searcher .
Now, only looking at the first movie, it sort of seemed like it was a stretch that Gunn was trying to get us to put together Eson having the same name as Peter's grandfather from the comics.
In Volume 2 however, there may be further evidence to support some …Read more >
So, I was looking at the Infinity Gauntlets and I was trying to figure out if there was any significance the Gauntlets could have in Norse mythology or if it might just be a reference to one of the comic universes where there were 2 Gauntlets.
I found something very interesting. In both Norse mythology and the comics, Thor possessed járngreipr. Járngreipr are 2 metal gloves that Thor wore. In Norse mythology Thor used them to weild Mjolnir and were considered one of Thor's 3 crucial possessions (járngreipr, Mjolnir, and megingjord). I wasn't able to find much about the gloves from the comics however.
So, due to one of the Gauntlets being on Asgard and both having Norse designs on them, I think the MCU Infinity Gauntlets are a combination of …Read more >
