    Yes, I think Thanos got a bad rap. I haven't checked with friends and family yet though so I reserve the right to change my mind.

    And then on the Late Night with Colbert the other night, there was a crossover which linked in with Avengers:Infinity

    Judge: "Thanos, you stand accused of first degree murder of your own daughter, genocide, and littering. How do you plead?"

    Thanos: "Guilty on all counts." (Uses Infinity Stones to turn judge into powder.)

    Thanos: "Does anyone here know where to find a decent restaurant in this town?"

    Question - If Loki hadn't taken that infinity stone would it have been destroyed along with Asgard?

    Good question. Thor seems to think so, since he claims it was destroyed before he realizes Loki took it. Loki really ought to have left it alone.

    That's what I was thinking. I started to wonder if the stones were indestructible and remembered the Scarlet Witch did briefly destroy one of them.

    Of course, even if the destruction of Asgard had destroyed it, Thanos could have used the Time Stone to go back and retrieve it, the same as he did for the Mind Stone...

    The theory they were operating under in the movie was that Wanda might be able to destroy the Mind Stone because her power came from that stone, and therefore, it was the same kind of energy.

    So I'd think that while the Space Stone could be destroyed under the right circumstances, it would have taken more than the destruction of Asgard to do it.

    Another question if I may - can Thanos track the stones wherever they may be? Even if one is floating in deep space far from any star system?

    I wouldn't think so, since he didn't know where the soul stone was.

    I think he just gradually came to know where each of them was (except thee soul stone) because obviously he's spent years planning for this and the information came his way. I definitely don't think he can track them.

    Also, the mind stone was in Loki's staff from The Avengers, which Thanos gave him. I know Thanos wanted the Tesseract, but...why would you give up an Infinity Stone in order to (maybe) get another Infinity Stone? I suppose you could say he was overconfident that Loki would win on Earth, but considering the rarity of the stones, that still seems like a headscratcher to me.

    I don’t think so. For the same reasons Josh mentioned.

    I don’t think so. But if it had been left on Asgard I think he would have been able to find it in the debris field.

    Probably was a “it takes money to make money” type of endeavor. Having one Infinity Stone is great and all, but it seems for Thanos’ purpose it’s really an all or nothing real. They are really only worth having if he has the whole set.

    So if it leveraging one lead to winding up with two, then he’s one step closer to what he wanted. If it didn’t work out (which it didn’t) then at least knows what planet two stones are on (ultimately three) when he is ready to come pick them up.
