Avengers Endgame was full of iconic moments, but none more so than Iron Man’s sacrificial death. But have you ever noticed the apparent plot hole that Tony, a mere man, didn’t struggle to wield the Infinity Stones before his Snap, while the incredibly strong Hulk was really struggling before his? Well, now a popular and newly spotted Easter Egg – intentional or not – appears to answer this question. Back in the first Iron Man movie there was a scene where Tony and Ho Yinsen were creating the first arc reactor.
Yinsen says: “That could run your heart for 50 lifetimes.”
To which Stark quips: “Yeah. Or something big for 15 minutes.”
Reddit user WolverineKuzuri93 who spotted the Easter Egg wrote: “Or something REALLY big for 15 seconds.
“It just dawned on me how Tony was able to not only wield the stones but also do so without immediately being incapacitated like the Hulk was.
“His arc reactor took the bulk of the energy.”
Now that’s a satisfying reason for Tony not struggling when he took the Infinity Stones from Thanos.
