If you are an Avengers fan, I am sure you remember the scene in which Thanos snapped away life from half of the universe. After which is our vision. The vision if supposed to be inside of the soul stone, the Soul World.
In that fish and we see him talking to younger Mora. The vision was brief, yet it still raises one question about Avengers: Endgame.
In Endgame, both Iron-Man and Hulk uses the Infinity stones. Yet, none of them has that vision of the soul world. Why?
An Interesting Theory On it Just Surfaced
A Reddit user named u/comrade_batman came up with a theory. According to that, Thanos had a vision of Gomora because he went himself to Vormir.
Thanos sacrificed Gamora himself to earn the Soul Stone. Meanwhile, neither Hulk nor Iron-Man made that journey. Other than that, they also do not understand the stones as Thanos does.
This means no trip for them to the Soul World.
What the post says:
“I think the reason why Thanos was the only one who was transported to Soulworld when he Snapped, was because he was the only one to actually sacrifice that which he loved.
He went to Vormir and sacrificed Gamora for the Stone, which he why he had a vision for her in the Soulworld, because he understood the Stone’s need, in having to lose his daughter.
Smart Hulk and Tony however did not truly understand the Stone. While the did use the combined powers of the Infinity Stones, just as Thanos did, they didn’t have to personally sacrifice anyone for the Soul Stone. It was Clint who had to lose Natasha to obtain the Soul Stone.
Red Skull’s words to Thanos were ‘Soul holds a special place among the Infinity Stones. You might say, it is a certain wisdom…To ensure that whoever possesses it understands its power, the stone demands a sacrifice…in order to take the stone, you must lose that which you love. A soul for a soul.’ Clint was the one who went through that in Endgame, not Smart Hulk or Tony, Clint was the one to make the sacrifice, to understand the Stone’s power, just like Thanos, and collect it.
If Clint had been the one to Snap then I think he’d have a similar vision with Natasha, seeing her one last time, like with Thanos and Gamora.”
