hot take: thanos knew about tony from that one planet he visited where everyone worshipped tony as a god, thats why thanos felt threatened by tony cause he tries so damn hard to be seen as god by killing millions and still fails at it but this fucking mortal from Unimportant Rock #23 has a whole fucking alien race worshipping him even though theyve never even seen him
thanos: what do you mean, you dont know that you are worshipped as god by an entire alien race
tony: i have nothing to do with it
thanos, eye twitching, strangled voice: youre telling me, you became god, by accident??
tony: i guess?
thanos: thi s is fine 🙂
guys i just read up on the Stark race and it says theyre 6 feet tall on average and their bodies are bionic,, theres a whole race of 6ft tall motherfuckers that worship tony stark thats incredible but also fucking terrifying
peter, starry-eyed: are you really a god, mister stark?
tony: naaah, i have no idea what that guy’s talking about. tall, violet and god-complex over there must confuse me with someone else.
*two days later, an army of 6ft tall, built-as-fuck, we-mean-business alien warriors is camping outside SI, ready to follow their god into battle*
narrator: he did not.
