Avengers: Endgame introduced the complex idea of time travel to the Marvel Cinematic Universe. But if you start digging deeper, a whole new set of questions could have been opened up. As evidenced by Scott Lang’s brief time-travelling woes, the Quantum Realm technology can make the characters of the MCU immortal.
Lang travels through time
It is seen that Lang was turned both into a pre-teen and an old man. He could also carry his thoughts and memories across the transformations. This means that with the Quantum Realm tech that has already been developed, the Avengers could theoretically revert Captain America to his age before he travelled back in time. The technology would act similarly to the Time Stone. It would allow just one person or item and make sure that the rest of the timeline remains the same.
The obligations that come with power
A point to be noted is that Tony Stark mentioned at one point the situation was dangerous. Yet with everything else they’ve figured out, there must be someone that can stabilize the technology. A bigger question would be the moral obligations that come with using technology as powerful as that. Could all people keep reverting themselves to young age to prevent dying?
Moreover, if the powers that be chose to pursue the time-travelling and immortality bit any further in Phase 4 and beyond, you could bet your but some bad guy would end up after the tech anyway.
Do you think someone will eventually use the Quantum Realm tech for immortality? If so, who? Share your thoughts in the comments below.
