    Both have prep time in this fight, but can Reed Richards a master of prep time defeat another master of prep time even WITH the Infinity Gauntlet?

    You're kidding me, right?

    It's one thing to have the IG.

    It's another thing to give the IG wielder prep-time.

    Well considering I thought Reed Richards would get slaughtered by Thanos even with prep time. I thought the infinity gauntlet would at least put him on par with a cosmic like being such as Thanos.

    There's only a handful of characters above the IG. Less than 10 of them.

    I think only TOAA the Living Tribunal, and possibly the Beyonder (pre-ret) are above the Gauntlet+prep, with possibly a few more I am forgetting, and Thanos is not one of them.

    Maybe I shouldn't have added in the infinity gauntlet then... I just thought that there's no way Reed Richards on his own can beat a cosmic so the infinity gauntlet might at least boost him to cosmic level thus putting him on par with Thanos.

    Oh well but yeah I'm a total idiot then I guess... :(

    Don't worry about it. We all make mistakes now and then.

    True... though I just thought of something...

    Considering Thanos DOES get prep time in this fight too. Doesn't it mean that it probably wouldn't matter if Richards had the Infinity Gauntlet? Considering Thanos is considered one of the masters of prep time in the Marvel Universe.

    the guantlet AND reed richards? WITH PREP!!!!?!?!?


    are you out of your damn mind? the IG makes galactus look like a little girl, giving it to a guy like reed is overkill.


    thanos can't even beat tyrant, a guy who still is not as powerful as galactus, so I don't see how he can beat a guy with something that completly dwarfs galactus's power.

    If Reed has the IG?

    Thanos has no chance. At the very start of the battle, Reed would immediately incapacitate Thanos with a thought.

    Thanos would admit that in a straight-up battle agaisnt certain characters with the IG, all the prep-time in the world wouldn't change his defeat.

    Reed with prep time might even be enough to even annoy Thanos

    Thanos on average is vastly below the major cosmics but with the IG he was above most of them

    Well if Mr Fantastic has prep time too, its a instant win for Mr Fantastic.

    Without it, Thanos is very resourseful. His connection to Death is also a connection to the Living Tribune, just like Eternity is warlocks link. Thanos 'might' be able to manipulate the living tribune to either attack Mr Fantastic or Nullify the gems working together, Thanos should be able to take Mr Fantastic after that point.

    Pfft i'll not allow disrespect going Thanos way :p
    He didn't beat Tyrant but he did own him and technically defeat him by stealing his power cosmic orb :)
    He has also beaten Galactus and Akhenaten.

    He beat the i*c*st Pharoah because he took his source of power

    Could someone post scans of him beating Big G? I really want to see that

    This Thanos overestimation is getting ridiculous.

    Reed's prep-time is second only to Thanos' himself. And if you give him the IG, it's enough to boost him way over.

    Also Thanos knows more about the IG than Reed does. Who's to say that even with prep-time Reed could use the IG to it's full power? Thanos might have a chance in that case.

    Reed with prep time isn't THAT far behind Thanos, I don't see how he wouldn't learn how to use the IG. Also he wouldn't need to know how to use it to its fullest potential to beat Thanos with it.

    Well then if we want this to be a fair fight how about tweaking it a bit so Reed doesn't have prep time but Thanos does? At least that would make it a little less one-sided. What do you say?

    Well all Thanos would do is contact the Living Tribune and convince him to make the gems not work as one, or maybe aqquire something more powerful...


    Edit- The omniscience of the infinity gauntlet would surely cancel any prep time :)

    Man all I wanted to do was make Reed Richards cosmic level against Thanos and give them both prep time for this fight. I thought the infinity gauntlet would just give Reed cosmic abilities... not turn him into some unbeatable force.

    Well I know what the infinity gauntlet DOES, however, I guess I didn't know the full extent of the IG's power thinking that it only put someone on a cosmic level. This was when I didn't know Thanos was cosmic all on his own. I thought the IG was what made him cosmic level.

    Unfortunately I don't have access to the comic's themselves so I try to do as much research as I can.

    Some feats of the IG-
    Thanos killed half the population of the universe with a tough.
    Thanos defeated Eternity, Death, Galactus, Lord Chaos, Master Order, Chronos, Stranger, Love, Hate and an Army of Celestials.

    Here is what the merged gems powers were.

    I still don't think Thanos is cosmic, but I'd put him pretty close up there.


    I could maybe upload IG for you in a couple days, that is of course unless Riceball wants to.:p
