You can’t imagine how much (though it is good , definitely an excellent super hero movie) how much I detest the “avengers” movies.
Fave Comic Characters in order… Adam Warlock , Silver Surfer , Thanos… Galactus… Mephisto…
Least fave super hero teams in order (though ignoring individual members cuz who doesn’t love HULK!) Avengers…
Fave comic series of all times in order… The infinity Gauntlet , The infinity watch… Deadpool(just included for funs)
if you know any of the above… you can see why the current movies broke my heart (although they are awesome and good “what if’s” which is how I view them heh)
Thanos as an Eco Terrorist was hilarious… someone who is a fan thought of that. The man mass murdered his own people , his mom the universe… chases death like alovesick schoolboy…
On the actual question. The movies just didn’t listen to their comic rep who tells them “is this like the comics or what” “snaps” sometimes do unknowns personally (Adam Warlock divesting himself of good and evil after taking the gauntlet from thanos after using the entire MCU as fodder… way to be Adam…). But 99.9% to my understanding understand intent. These are six sentient " almost q’s" if you will trapped in these gems. The Snaps would use a calculation I’d imagine (completely assuming here) that yes bob dies cuz he’s the driver and sally and sue will die but mary will live through the crash so 3 down 1 up… . Determinism if you will? I hope that’s the right word for that.
That’s how I viewed the movie version of the snap. In the comics it’s only I think two panels really and just kind of hints that it somehow knows not to create more by proxy deaths, so selected the ones unlikely to harm others through their absence. But he also does it for much more nefarious means. Just impressing your not even a girlfriend yet… yikes. Doesn’t work either… women amiright? (Just kidding ladies, don’t beat me! Ow , Ow , Ow).
The way it happens in the movies though , I think Deth is right , just cuz of the sideline of the hints from other movies etc. Definitely be a lot of proxy deaths. Wouldn’t go so far as some but maybe 60-65% mortality. That little extra (also remember its universe wide… the poor phalanx or other hive minds… what do you do when you’re truly only one individual… or if half the “brood” taken out (xmen) took out all their queens… yikes.
ALso in Snarky’s tent, most definitely the right thing to reverse it. “boohoo” as said.
