Reddit users bring Thanos to Karma Court after the Thanos subreddit banned half of its members to pay homage to the Mad Titan's actions in Avengers: Infinity War.
Popular subreddit r/ThanosDidNothingWrong, announced its plans to ban half of its users last week, mimicking how Thanos wiped out half of the life in the galaxy in an effort to achieve balance in Infinity War. The scheme quickly became an online sensation prompting countless fans to sign-up for the subforum in the hopes of partaking in the event. Now that the re-enactment has been done, half of the full subscriber count was spared of the ban, while the unfortunate half find themselves shipped to a new subreddit dubbed r/inthesoulstone.
Because of this, Thanos finds himself on trial at Reddit's Karma Court with user Lucas_the_Gamer making a case about the Mad Titan's actions in the hopes of achieving balance was not only ineffective but also detrimental to everyone. Check out his opening statement below:
Greetings, reddit. Let me cut to the chase. I'm sure you're all aware of a certain purple somebody who's been making quite a ruckus these past few days. His ultimate goal: To bring balance to the universe. But has he truly? Let's examine the evidence. Thanos believed the only way to bring balance was to eliminate half the life in the universe. But look at what he has truly done. He's lead to dozens of bamboozling lawsuits, and hasn't even succeeded in his goal. What a waste of life. I myself was a victim of the merciless snapping, and I will do anything to give justice to those who have been unwillingly trapped in the cold, lifeless clutches of the soul stone. /r/thanosdidnothingwrong, give me your best shot.
For those who don't know, Karma Court is the "highest court" on Reddit where people express their frustrations about the various issues that users experience in the forum. While their decisions don't have any effect outside the sub, and most of the issues are purely for fun (like this one), it's a great community where everyone has a place to civilly talk about any concerns they may have without the risk of being taken too seriously or attacked. Those who play the part in the proceedings like those who are in the prosecution or defense prepare well-versed arguments that are undoubtedly amusing to read, and this Thanos case is no exception.
Similar to how fans are holding Thanos accountable for his actions, people can expect that the remaining Marvel heroes will also do everything in their power not just to ensure that the Mad Titan will pay for his trespasses, but also restore peace and order in the universe come Avengers 4. While it's still uncertain just how exactly their going to do that especially since Thanos still has all the Infinity Stones, rumors has it that Ant-Man & The Wasp's Quantum Realm might be the key to ultimately defeating the intergalactic villain. All will be revealed soon as Phase 3 comes to a close.
