Thanks to the inclusion of the multiverse in the Marvel Cinematic Universe, shows like what if…? and movies like Doctor Strange in a multiverse of madness It could explore the ramifications of events that take place differently – including some surprising ways they might have ended up taking advantage of an unexpected tragedy. This means a running joke in Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2 The gameplay could have been done quite differently and even the heroes were killed during the process of saving the universe. But while their premature death would have been tragic, they may have created a surprisingly secure future for the MCU.
Big Gag During Climax Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2 Focuses on the team’s attempts to stop Ego the Living Planet. With aspects of himself scattered throughout the universe, it was up to the Guardians to destroy him, with Rocket resorting to crafting a devastating bomb to try to do the damage. However, the only way for the bomb to work is to bring it close to Ego’s brain, which requires Baby Groot to deliver it. Over and over again, Baby Groot isolates that he’ll press the wrong button and detonate the bomb before the group can escape from Ego. Fortunately, he pressed the correct button and gave the group enough time to escape.
But it’s worth considering what would have happened in the timeline if Baby Groot had pressed the wrong button and killed himself – and the rest of his guardians -. The sudden absence of the Guardians is unlikely to be treated as a victory, as Nova Corp. will likely investigate their deaths and come into conflict with Sovereign and their forces. But while losing the universe would have been a tragic loss for the Guardians, it may have also helped prevent this from happening Much of other problems.
as revealed in Avengers: Infinity WarThanos’ true love for Gamora was the only thing that could gain him access to the Soul Stone. He wouldn’t even have been able to discover the gem’s location without Gamora, who revealed the information after witnessing Thanos torturing the nebula. With both Gamora and Nebula dying in a timeline as Baby Groot accidentally activated the bomb, it’s unlikely Thanos will be able to find the Soul Stone, let alone get it. This means that his mission to collect infinite stones will be doomed to fail, and he may be brought down by his enemies who unite against him or abandon his plans. As a result, the damage caused by his crusade may have been prevented.
Thor, Loki, and the rest of the Asgardians would not have been decimated and forced back to Earth. The vision would not have been killed by Thanos for taking the Mind Stone, which means that Wanda would not have gone far and started the events of WandaVision And Doctor Strange in a multiverse of madness. Black Panther and the Pyms could not have been turned to dust by Snap, and their intentions to change the world through economic communication and scientific breakthroughs may have occurred much faster. Finally, neither Black Widow nor Iron Man would have died in the battles that followed, and the lack of time travel needing could have left Steve Rogers in the present as a hero.
Also, the sudden outpouring of life caused by the shot’s reflection would never have occurred – making the celestial egg inside the Earth’s core dormant for much longer. The death of the Guardians would have been a huge loss to the universe, and whatever missions they would undertake in the future would have been ruined if they weren’t there to save the day. But estimating the costs in lives suggests that the universe would have likely been in a better place if the Guardians had just died along with the ego.
