It is a well-known fact that the majority of MCU villains are created by the heroes themselves. However, if we look closer, we will find that even the credit of Thanos attack goes to Marvel Superstars. Well here are 6 MCU victories that made Earth prone to Thanos attack.

1. The Spy in the Sky
– Captain America – The Winter Soldier
If the helicarrier fleet of S.H.I.E.L.D. had been given a go ahead in the movie as their spy in the sky, things would have been pretty different.
There would have been tremendous geopolitical repercussions making the carrier extremely powerful to shoot Thanos out of the sky.
You might be thinking that we are giving too much hype to the carrier, but it could have been worth a shot.
2. Dr. Ultron Monster
– The Avengers – Age of Ultron
Ultron is the by-product of the terrible experiment of Mr. Tony Stark.
It’s a fact and not something to be discussed. Ultron was supposed to be extremely intelligent, an interlinked fleet of mighty warrior robots tasked with protecting the planet from extra-terrestrial threats.
So what if Ultron would have been made as planned. He could have created as much nuisance for Thanos as he did for the Avengers.
3. Avengers Disassembled
– Captain America- Civil War
Was it just the push Thanos needed?
Getting the mightiest of superheroes against each other. I guess yes.
The two most prominent heroes of Avengers against each other. Iron Man vs Captain America. And moreover, it disassembled the team. Unity is strength and is just not so there in Avengers now.
Is this a boost for Thanos? Indeed it is.
4. The Fallen Sanctums
– Doctor Stranger
The three sanctums shown in Doctor Strange formed a protective shield on Earth protecting it from alien attack.
The sanctums were – London, Hong Kong, and New York.
Kaecillius destroyed the London Sanctum and also the Hong Kong one for a short while, making Earth open for Dormammu attack.
However, Strange was able to somehow restore the Hong Kong one by playing with the timeline. But London one is still down. So, that does leave Earth prone to Thanos? Right?
– Black Panther
Wakanda is the richest planet in the universe. And with T’Challa now making a peace with the human beings on Earth, it is bound to attract Thanos.
