Who Will Wield The GAUNTLET
the astral plane, Thanos, the Mad Titan, appears before the Hood, holding the last Infinity Gem. He warns the Hood of the dangerous powers that he now wields but doesn't comprehend. He offers to help the Hood use the gems properly. When the Hood refuses, Thanos reveals himself to be actually Doctor Strange in disguise. They return to the physical plane, as Red Hulk comes charging with the Power Gem and knock all but the Reality Gem out of the Hood's hand. They soon clash, battling across various other Earths. Though Red Hulk warns that he could sunder the fabric of reality, the Hood doesn't care and demands his gem by threatening to erase him from existence. Red Hulk opens his fists to reveal nothing. All the gems have been placed on the Infinity Gauntlet, now held by Iron Man, who then snags the last gem.
Outnumbered and outmatched, the Hood snaps at the Avengers that if they lost his powers, they'd be no different from him. Iron Man admits that he could use the gauntlet to make the world a better place. He could bring back his father or Wasp. Instead, he decides to do two things. First, send the Hood back to prison. Second, to will the gauntlet out of existence.
As the Avengers wrap things up, Steve Rogers tries encouraging Red Hulk to join the Avengers.
However, Iron Man had lied, for he didn't destroy the gauntlet, fearing a cause and effect if he did. The Illuminati, including Rogers, decide to find better hiding places for the gems.
