So the very first suit would have been better, as it was made with some lead

December 11, 2019

He became stuff.

They should have had Red Hulk snap it.

December 11, 2019

Why not have a robot arm do the snap🤷🤷

8:30 said core was only a 14 lbs core, that was destined for the 3rd bomb to be dropped on Japan.

Thor should have snapped. Obviously his asgardian biostructure is immune to gamma radiation since he was nearly kissing the gauntlet during Thanos' original snap

1:53 Gamma radiation: one of the key components of building a COBALT bomb for the military. A COBALT bomb is essentially a nuclear bomb, except instead of destroying everything, it causes radiation to spread of approximately 500 miles, it is so nuclearly devastating that the radiation itself is self-replicating, causing a nuclear winter in the 500 mile "blast" radius; it's like Chernobyl: but 6 times as worse. It is meant to make an city unlivable, thus making military operations completely get roadblocked, even fighter jets and tanks perfectly sealed up can have soldiers die inside them cause the radiation is just that intense.

Why wouldn't everyone else die in the same way?

December 11, 2019

Just remember: "E.D.I.T.H."

But also. This is not the comic version of the infinity GEMS. these ones kill you if you use them lol. Great joke to Marvel readers.

He was fast food fried into Smokey tasty jerky.

December 11, 2019

LOL I was going to comment about the fact that everyone in the vicinity would've died from the radiation blast but hey, you got it covered. Hesusehueshseues
Would have loved that ending too. In a nerdrage way but still.

No doubt others have pointed this out, but certainly if you have the power to alter space, time (which are really the same thing), and reality, then if you are a super-genius like Tony Stark is supposed to be, you could just move the snap of your own hand behind the moon and/or at any point in history, and never be concerned with the amount of radiation using the gauntlet produces.

December 11, 2019

Actual you hear snap when your fingers collide with your palm

December 11, 2019

in dr.manhattan's video you said that dude that made the core go critical died after 25 days but now you say he died in 9?

December 11, 2019

Flat earthers that are also anti vaxxers disliked the video.

December 11, 2019

Tony Stonk

December 11, 2019

If he was radioactive, doesnt it mean people who gathered around him would die?

December 11, 2019

You should do an episode on 5g and confirm or put to sleep the worried about it.
