The end result of the Marvel Cinematic Universe has arrived with Avengers: Endgame, the place the best Marvel superheroes tangle with Thanos the Mad Titan, following up on the occasions of Avengers: Infinity War. Since displaying up on the finish of the primary Avengers film, it’s been fairly obvious that Thanos can be scouring the cosmos for the Infinity Gems/Stones in order to do an adaptation of the hit early ’90s miniseries Infinity Gauntlet.
The comedian has develop into slightly iconic in Marvel historical past and it made sense that they’d spend the higher a part of a decade constructing in direction of it. As we now know, they did not take to the supply materials all that intently. Sure, there was no crushing on Death or appearances by Adam Warlock, however it very a lot drew from that nicely. It’s to be anticipated. Infinity Gauntlet is a storyline that’s been retold, tailored, and twisted in all types of the way since first showing practically 30 years in the past.
Here are all of the completely different variations of Thanos and Adam’s Excellent Adventure.
INFINITY GAUNTLET (1991)
We’re going full spoiler on this.
As a follow-up to the two-part story Thanos Quest, the Mad Titan Thanos has management of all six Infinity Gems and is basically God. Mephisto hangs round to feed his ego, whereas naturally plotting to overthrow him. Thanos additionally has his so-called granddaughter Nebula hanging round, caught in a catatonic zombie state as a result of Thanos is a jerk. Since Thanos desires to win the love of Death herself, he makes use of the Gauntlet to wipe out half of the universe. 50% of all dwelling issues merely vanish, together with an enormous chunk of the superheroes. Adam Warlock is reborn and goes to the remaining heroes, arising with this superior plan of going to Thanos’ area residence and punching him in his silly scrotum face. This is mostly a swerve as a result of he plans to have all of them killed off as a distraction so Silver Surfer can sneak by and steal the Gauntlet off Thanos’ hand.
Meanwhile, Thanos’ whims have triggered Earth to float away from the solar, making it colder and colder by the hour. Odin and all the opposite heavyweight god varieties on Earth are blocked off from interfering. As a method of creating Death jealous, Thanos makes use of the Gauntlet to create a mate in Terraxia.

Mephisto means that Thanos maintain again towards the heroes to impress Death, so he scales it again rather a lot, which provides the heroes a 1% likelihood. As onerous as they struggle, they nonetheless lose horribly and are killed one-by-one by Thanos and Terraxia. After Captain America goes full-on badass and stares down Thanos, Silver Surfer flies in and misses his mark utterly. About then, all of the galactic heavy hitters – the tapestry of the universe itself – present up. Thanos goes again to full energy and makes mincemeat of all of them. He transforms himself right into a kind that’s one with the universe, which leaves his bodily Gauntlet out within the open. Nebula takes it and steals the ability, reverting every little thing to the way it as soon as was…apart from the half the place she nonetheless has all the ability.
Thanos groups up with Warlock and a few the extra highly effective heroes, in the end defeating Nebula when Warlock takes management of the Soul Gem and shorts it out a bit, inflicting Nebula to drop the Gauntlet. A struggle breaks out and Warlock comes out wielding the Infinity Gauntlet, swearing to make use of it correctly. Thanos fakes his personal demise, however is later seen dwelling a quiet life as a farmer.
So that’s Infinity Gauntlet Prime. Let’s see how different writers and mediums have messed round with the formulation.

WHAT IF THANOS CHANGED GALACTUS INTO A HUMAN BEING? (1992)
What If #34 was a humor-based problem of the sequence and whereas most of it’s painfully unfunny, the opening seven-page quick story is humorous and even somewhat bit uplifting in its personal bizarre method. No joke, that is truly my all-time favourite comedian ebook story.
As Thanos fights the cosmic entities, he decides to get artistic when dispatching Galactus. He transforms him right into a human being and sends him all the way down to Earth. Galactus awakens bare in a trailer park, forgetting who he’s whereas being a 100% facsimile of Elvis Presley! A single mom named Gertrude takes him in and thinks he’s the actual take care of amnesia.

He’s discovered a greater id because the King of Rock ‘n’ Roll and chooses to stick with Gertrude and her son, giving each Galactus and Elvis Presley’s legacy a second likelihood.
WHAT THE–?! #24 (1992)
Marvel’s lesser-known humor ebook from the early ’90s as soon as featured a Mad Magazine-style spoof of Infinity Gauntlet known as “The Infinity Mitten.” Thermos and his advisor McFisto go on a double-date with Death and Taxes, however Thermos is upset that Death has no real interest in him. Using the Mitten, he removes half of life within the universe…besides on the primary attempt he by accident simply removes everybody’s decrease half.

The cosmic beings present as much as throwdown, however Thermos factors out that he’s an atheist they usually all vanish.

Thinking that killing off a complete universe of heroes and villains is sufficient, Thermos is shocked to see that Death is now courting Nintendo’s Mario. Death explains that her new boyfriend is killing off the complete comics business by himself!
WHAT IF THE SILVER SURFER POSSESSED THE INFINITY GAUNTLET? (1993)
I completely love this problem and would have appreciated a variation of this because the precise ending of Infinity Gauntlet as an alternative of what we received. Surfer succeeds in snatching the Gauntlet from Thanos’ fingers. First factor he does is about every little thing again to regular. Then he sends everybody again residence besides Warlock and Thanos, who he retains as advisors…however actually as witnesses as he makes the universe a greater place. He begins off with the well-meaning strikes you’d anticipate. He eliminates illness, starvation, soothes hatred (a Kree and a Skrull are proven greeting one another fortunately), and even makes Death right into a extra alluring determine as an alternative of one thing to be feared. Then he goes to Hell to see if Mephisto can be cool being remade into one thing a bit extra nice, however Mephisto as an alternative begins a struggle. Surfer vaporizes him and goes again to his residence to consider stuff.

Warlock and Thanos go to Doctor Strange as a result of, boy howdy, Surfer’s going nuts with all that energy. Strange figures one of the best ways about that is to summon Surfer’s outdated flame Shalla-Bal to speak some sense into him, particularly since Surfer’s pondering of eradicating randomness utterly and giving the universe full order. Arguments and combating occur, however seeing Shalla-Bal so harm brings Surfer again to sanity. He makes use of the Infinity Gauntlet’s energy to destroy itself – and seemingly he and Shalla-Bal with it – however we uncover that the 2 of them are secretly alone on a paradise planet of their creation to stay the remainder of their lives in secret.
As every little thing returns to regular, Thanos stands alone, holding up the scrapped stays of the Gauntlet. With a smirk, he says, “So close. Oh, yes… So very close.”
MARVEL SUPER HEROES (1995)
In a follow-up to X-Men: Children of the Atom, Capcom launched a one-on-one combating recreation known as Marvel Super Heroes, which is loosely based mostly on Infinity Gauntlet. In it, you management a hero or villain as you collect the Infinity Gems out of your opponents, working your strategy to combating Dr. Doom after which Thanos. Upon assembly him, Thanos will steal your Gems and full the Infinity Gauntlet earlier than the ultimate battle. While there isn’t a lot story within the recreation, it undoubtedly stays loyal to the comedian in methods. For occasion, Thanos’ battleground is his base from Infinity Gauntlet, the place you possibly can see the likes of Thor, Nova, Drax, Scarlet Witch, and She-Hulk frozen in stone as Mephisto and Death idle within the background.
learn extra: The Legacy of Marvel vs. Capcom
The recreation is kicking rad in the event you haven’t performed it, letting you unleash the ability of the varied Gems in battle, every supplying you with a distinct skill. The console model consists of playable variations of the bosses, in addition to Anita, the impassive little woman from Capcom’s Darkstalkers sequence.
Here are the varied endings based mostly on the completely different characters defeating Thanos:
Anita: Simply makes use of the Gems to free the heroes from their statue kinds. Nothing else.
Blackheart: Is requested handy it over from his father Mephisto, however Blackheart activates him and chooses to rule actuality.
Captain America: Reverts the heroes to regular. Then friends round with Thor and throws the Infinity Gems right into a black gap so no one can use them.
Dr. Doom: Bitches out Thanos and guidelines the Earth with the Infinity Gauntlet. Yeah, they don’t get very fancy with this one.
Hulk: Reverts the heroes to regular. Thanos desires to die, however Hulk leaves him begging. Hulk goes on a second honeymoon to Vegas with Betty, however he chooses to get there by leaping with Betty holding on for pricey life.
Iron Man: Reverts the heroes to regular. Considers utilizing the Gauntlet, however then refuses. Later, he’s bummed to find that his nervous system issues are gone. He selfishly used the ability in any case. Cap tells him to not fear about it.
Juggernaut: Is able to seize the Infinity Gauntlet and get his vengeance on Xavier. Suddenly, Adam Warlock pops in to take it away, thanking Juggernaut for saving actuality after which sending him again to Earth. I hate Adam Warlock.
Magneto: Creates a second moon round Earth and makes it a everlasting residence for mutants, lastly separating himself from the people. He is the everlasting ruler of New Avalon.
Psylocke: Reverts the heroes to regular. She returns to the mansion, interested by how she has skilled being molded to the desire of others earlier than and would by no means, ever try this to a different individual.
Shuma-Gorath: Absorbs the ability of the Infinity Gems and grows in measurement, permitting it to feast upon actuality itself.
Spider-Man: Reverts the heroes to regular. Goes residence to Mary Jane to seek out out that he’s going to be a father. This is rather a lot much less uplifting while you keep in mind that this recreation was launched throughout Clone Saga. Ugh.
Thanos: Has two separate endings. Either he chooses to develop into one with the cosmos because the true ruler of the universe, or he provides up the ability and lives on as a farmer.
Wolverine: Reverts the heroes to regular. He realizes that he may use the ability to seek out out about his previous, however refuses. Instead, he leaves the X-Men to seek out the solutions himself.
Thanos would return in Marvel vs. Capcom 2, nonetheless with the Infinity Gauntlet, however the recreation lacks something resembling a coherent storyline. Then in Marvel vs. Capcom: Infinite, the Gauntlet is handled as a crimson herring as Thanos is extra excited by fashioning Ryu’s darkish energies right into a Satsui No Hado Gauntlet so he can kill (or no less than harm) Death.
MARVEL SUPER HEROES: WAR OF THE GEMS (1996)
You would assume that this is able to simply be a lesser incarnation of the one-on-one fighter I simply talked about, however no. This Capcom launch is extra of a sequel to the side-scroller beat ‘em up X-Men: Mutant Apocalypse. In it, you play by means of together with your selection of Hulk, Captain America, Spider-Man, Wolverine, and Iron Man. Coincidentally, Iron Man’s choose portrait is only a image of his sprite from the arcade recreation. Go determine.
The recreation is one huge mishmash of each Infinity Gauntlet and Infinity War, which is smart, contemplating Infinity Gauntlet wasn’t actually stuffed to the brim with villains to struggle. Here, you get to struggle evil doppelganger clones of assorted heroes, like Hawkeye, Vision, Sasquatch, Iron Man, and so on. At first you seek for the varied Infinity Gems, making an attempt to cease the likes of Magus and Dr. Doom from getting their fingers on them, however Thanos will get the final one. After going by means of Nebula, you face Thanos and…nicely, it doesn’t actually have the identical dire sense of hazard when he isn’t at full godhood. At least within the arcade recreation, he’s received all six Gems. Here, he has one towards your 5. That’s hardly spectacular.
learn extra – Who is in that Important Avengers: Endgame Spoiler Scene?
I assume Thanos has the Reality Gem as a result of actually all he does is trigger fireplace to burst from the bottom and summon a closing stone wall. That’s it. He’s gradual as molasses and his demise throes really feel like they take an hour.
Afterwards, Adam Warlock takes all of the Gems for himself and sends everybody residence. Feeling the necessity to give this epilogue some filler, they ask if Earth will ever really be protected. When all of your enemies transfer like snails, Earth is not in that a lot hazard, I suppose.
WHAT IF THE IMPOSSIBLE MAN OBTAINED THE INFINITY GAUNTLET? (1998)
So you understand that half the place Silver Surfer tries to swipe Thanos’ Gauntlet? It virtually works within the sense that he removes the glove, however he fumbles and drops it. It’s then grabbed by none apart from the annoying shape-shifter of the cosmos, the Impossible Man! Although Thanos isn’t any menace to him, he does principally pee himself as soon as all of the cosmic beings present up. He escapes with Surfer and factors out that he’s completely able to dealing with the burden of wielding the Infinity Gauntlet. To show his level, he brings Surfer to Zenn-La, his misplaced residence planet. He’s reunited with Shalla-Bal and all needs to be good, however Surfer can’t assist however really feel that issues aren’t fairly proper.
He’s summoned by Galactus as a result of though Impossible Man’s claimed to be about utilizing the Gauntlet justly, he’s in the course of exacting revenge on Galactus for consuming his residence world of Poppup method again when. Surfer fights him and loses, however convinces him to do the fitting factor by declaring that he can simply rebuild Poppup and return all its individuals. Galactus agrees to assist, however as a consequence of plot machine BS, Poppup can solely be created on the expense of the pretend Zenn-La. Surfer in the end goes together with it as a result of whereas he can by no means settle for his pretend world as actual, Impossible Man is just too oblivious and simple-minded to actually query his.

Poppup is reborn, the Poppupian race is reborn, and Impossible Man provides up his energy to the Elders of the Universe. Everything appears tremendous, however then Surfer realizes that the Poppupians are all purple and inexperienced variations of heroes and villains, combating it out like a bunch of goofs. He appears on in horror whereas a purple and inexperienced Forbush Man waves on the reader from behind his again.
WHAT IF: NEWER FANTASTIC FOUR (2009)
Slightly backstory on this one. Jeff Parker and Mike Wieringo had been engaged on a What If problem in regards to the New Fantastic Four (Spider-Man, Hulk, Wolverine, and Ghost Rider) remaining as a group. Unfortunately, Wieringo handed away in the course of the making of it, so they’d varied artists end the ebook in his place as a tribute. Even if it wasn’t such a heartwarming sentiment, What If This was the Fantastic Four? is a superb comedian to learn.
This is the sequel, which asks what would occur if Infinity Gauntlet occurred in a timeline with the New Fantastic Four, besides that Ghost Rider is worn out of existence from Thanos’ energy and is changed by Iron Man. Their first assembly with Thanos doesn’t go so nicely, since Hulk’s try and intimidate him with how robust he’s in relation to his anger causes Thanos to wipe out a piece of the Milky Way and state, “And I’m not even angry.” The all-powerful Thanos additionally separates Hulk and Banner out of curiosity and his want to point out off. During all of this, Wolverine notices how Mephisto is ready to steer Thanos round together with his phrases.
Like in common continuity, Adam Warlock brings up his superior plan of, “Do what I say and don’t ask questions so you don’t know that I’m using your horrible deaths as a diversion,” however this time it doesn’t fly. As Stark places it, “I don’t [know what I’m doing], but I don’t think he does either.” When they go at Thanos, Wolverine is the one one with a plan. He chooses to not struggle Thanos and as an alternative badmouths his companions whereas speaking Thanos into pondering that Mephisto is making an attempt to horn in on Death. Thanos buys this lie and vaporizes Mephisto. Wolverine worms his method into place as Thanos’ new right-hand man and explains to the opposite Fantastic Four members that he hopes that Thanos will reward his loyalty by forcing Jean Grey to like him.

Thanos continues to effortlessly defeat all challengers, even when Iron Man creates a go well with of armor out of a fallen Celestial. Wolverine talks up how Thanos hasn’t even bodily touched Death and that love is all about contact. Thanos will get all flustered as a result of it isn’t correct, however Wolverine eggs him on to only contact her face. As the nervous Thanos reaches out to take action, Wolverine chops his arm off with a smiling, “Sucker!” and has efficiently lower off his supply of energy.
Hulk punches Thanos out, Spider-Man makes use of the Gauntlet to place every little thing again the way in which it was, the Gauntlet is given to the Watchers to protect, and Bruce Banner turns into an honorary Watcher. Free from being one with the Hulk, he lives within the Watchers’ citadel for the remainder of his life, virtually bathing within the huge data accessible to him.
Too unhealthy they didn’t maintain going with What If: New Fantastic Four tales. They had been solely two points, however they had been loads of enjoyable.
WHAT IF: SECRET WARS (2009)
This one solely type of counts. Thanos solely will get one point out, however the story is extra of an alternate historical past companion piece that makes a pair parallel references to the unique story. In Secret Wars, Dr. Doom was capable of siphon off the powers of Galactus and the Beyonder, making him nigh-omnipotent. In this actuality, he retains the ability and totally defeats the heroes. He simply conquers Earth, all whereas leaving all of the heroes alive and utilizing his energy to ensure Sue Storm’s being pregnant (which resulted in a miscarriage in common continuity) is a wholesome one. He leaves the world a utopia and flies into area. The factor to remove from this story is that at his coronary heart, Dr. Doom just isn’t a ruler, however a conqueror. That’s why he’s dominated the world at least 3 times in common continuity and at all times left it behind for the sake of battle.
His try and take over varied alien empires is met with resistance, so he wipes out all who oppose him. Then he seeks out much more energy by slaying the Elders of the Universe and stealing the Infinity Gems. With the Soul Gem, he enters Hell, frees his mom, and kills Mephisto (which he says would solely be non permanent, since he’s the Devil and all). Next on the agenda is taking out the one beings larger than him on the meals chain: the Celestials. The struggle lasts 407 years (!) and in the long run, Doom is supreme, albeit with the Infinity Gems destroyed.
During the battle, a shockwave knocked Earth out of orbit, very similar to in Infinity Gauntlet. Doom sees that life will ultimately come to an finish. Without a second thought, he makes use of the rest of his cosmic energy to set the Earth again in place and save the planet. The ultimate scene reveals, fittingly sufficient, that he’s develop into a farmer, freely showing with no faceplate. He now not feels ashamed of his scars and plans to rebuild his rule from the bottom up, totally understanding the true potential of mankind.
Personally one in every of my favourite Dr. Doom tales.
SUPER HERO SQUAD SHOW SEASON 2 (2010)
The wacky cartoon sequence based mostly on the toys with the creepy smiles is a enjoyable sufficient diversion. The second season of the present is all in regards to the Infinity Gauntlet with the primary half of it being based mostly on Thanos’ quest to get all of the Gems. Thanos is voiced by Jim Cummings, which means he feels like just about each Jim Cummings voice you’ve ever heard. Interesting factor right here is that Thanos has Nebula captive and he refers to her as his sister. So in the event you’re preserving rating, she’s his granddaughter within the comics, daughter within the motion pictures, and sister within the cartoon.
The entire Death idea is forgotten about right here and Thanos is solely out for galactic energy for the sake of being an evil overlord with galactic energy. In the episode “Fate of Destiny,” he will get the complete set of Gems and the Super Hero Squad goes on the assault. They are soundly defeated (largely because of Thanos’ reality-warping catchphrase, “DO OVER!”), as are Dr. Doom and his underlings. Thanos is then challenged by the Silver Surfer, who’s wielding the Infinity Sword, the final word weapon of the primary season’s finale. Thanos challenges him to a winner-take-all struggle, which Surfer accepts. When they shake on it, Surfer pulls off Thanos’ glove.
Unfortunately, the Infinity Sword has been slowly corrupting Surfer over time, so having the Infinity Sword AND the Infinity Gauntlet drives him over the sting. He sends his former teammates spiraling by means of the multiverse, giving us youngsters’s cartoon diversifications of 1602 and Planet Hulk. Also, he knocks Earth out of orbit, making it more and more chilly. For the rest of the sequence, he’s the primary villain.
In the finale, “The Final Battle! (‘Nuff Said!)” The Dark Surfer is challenged by the group of Iron Man, Scarlet Witch, Hulk, Wolverine, Falcon, and Thor. Surfer chooses to separate himself into six beings for his personal amusement. Each Surfer is powered by a separate Gem, however the heroes have figured that every one is able to countering a selected Surfer based mostly on their very own skills/personalities. For occasion, the Mind Gem has little impact on Hulk and Wolverine’s surliness is ready to overpower the Soul Gem. With the assistance of Ronan the Accuser, they defeat Silver Surfer and get all of the Gems collectively.
It’s not over till they discover the place he hid the Infinity Sword, resulting in a ultimate battle between Iron Man and Dr. Doom, the place they by accident destroy each the Sword and the Gems. The ensuing explosion fixes the universe, together with Earth, and all is nicely. Surfer’s again to his senses and willingly accepts his Kree imprisonment. No longer capable of get his revenge on the Surfer, Thanos decides to go hang around at a hen farm as an alternative. Cute.
SUPER HERO SQUAD: INFINITY GAUNTLET (2010)
Around the time of the second season’s debut, they launched a online game tie-in the place you go round combating enemies with two heroes at a time. In the story, Iron Man and Hulk are selecting up some new boots for Thor’s birthday. The boots get combined up with Thanos’ Infinity Gauntlet and wackiness ensues. Eventually, Thanos will get all of the Gems. The duo of Iron Man and Scarlet Witch are capable of defeat him, however then Silver Surfer swoops in to steal the Infinity Gauntlet. Corrupted by its energy instantly, he does away with Galactus and, like within the cartoon, splits into six variations of himself. While Spider-Man sits this one out, the opposite twelve heroes pair up and struggle the varied Surfers one-by-one.
Once defeated, Surfer involves his senses. He and Iron Man throw the Infinity Gems and Infinity Sword right into a rift in actuality, taking good care of that drawback. Meanwhile, all of the villains are busy combating one another. Iron Man figures to only let that kind itself out. The heroes have a good time Thor’s birthday, however it seems his boots have been enchanted by Loki to make Thor dance for an eternity. Iron Man and Hulk seek for the receipt to allow them to return it.
AVENGERS AND THE INFINITY GAUNTLET (2010)
This out-of-continuity story is a reimagining of Infinity Gauntlet as an all-ages comedy ebook. With the final word energy of the Gauntlet, Thanos wipes out half of life within the universe for the sake of seeing chaos reign and the survivors destroy one another. The remaining heroes solely know the the place of the menace’s supply and never the who or what. Sue Storm places collectively a group of Ms. Marvel, Hulk, Wolverine, and Spider-Man. Dr. Doom bursts into the room and after a struggle the place he takes down everybody on his personal, Doom provides to affix the group. Their transport is US-Ace, the star of the forgotten 80s comedian US-1.
The actual treasure of this miniseries is watching Dr. Doom work together with the uncouth US-Ace. Especially once they go to the area trucker’s mother and father, who run an area diner. Ace’s mom bullies Doom into making everybody sandwiches, which is superb.
Once they arrive throughout Thanos close to the top of the third problem, all of them get thrashed. He’s solely stopped because of US-Ace driving his area truck into him because of his truckopathic hyperlink (Doom grumbles, “Oh Lord, he has a name for it…”). The act knocks off the Gauntlet and whereas Doom ultimately will get his fingers on it, it doesn’t work. Turns out he’s an ideal Doombot created by Doom to be launched into the world if he had been to ever go lacking for no matter motive, similar to, say, half of the universe’s inhabitants magically vanishing into skinny air. Spider-Man stops Thanos from getting the Gauntlet again on his hand after which makes use of its energy to want for a universe the place Thanos by no means had the Gems within the first place.
Spider-Man finally ends up again on Earth the place he’s the one one who remembers the complete journey. He isn’t too damaged up about it, however he needs another person on the market would bear in mind what he did. Elsewhere, Thanos plots his eventual revenge by sketching Spider-Man’s head into the bottom, then including an X over it.
I’m simply bummed that regardless of having 1,000,000 characters in Avengers: Infinity War, we don’t get to listen to Dr. Doom sarcastically reply to US-Ace with, “What a colorful turn of phrase. Perhaps you will regale us with more of them over a ‘mess of biscuits’ later.”

AVENGERS ASSEMBLE: SEASON TWO (2015)
Ugh. So, as soon as upon a time, there was this badass Avengers cartoon that individuals actually appreciated. Then they canceled it and changed it with Avengers Assemble, which I assume continues to be a factor. Anyway, very similar to Super Hero Squad Show, the second season is about Thanos and his quest to accumulate the Infinity Gauntlet. By the midway level, he has it and he loses in an extremely embarrassing method.
Iron Man has Arsenal, a robotic constructed by his father that may soak up energies and is programmed to guard Tony in any respect prices. After Thanos imprisons the Avengers with magic rock fingers from the bottom, Arsenal simply walks in direction of him. Thanos — with management over time and area and so forth — shoots lasers at him. Iron Man explains that Arsenal is ready to soak up such a factor. Knowing this, Thanos’ technique is to SHOOT LASERS HARDER as a result of holy shit. Arsenal yoinks the Gauntlet off Thanos’ hand, liberating up the Avengers to beat Thanos into mush.
Then Arsenal turns into Ultron as a result of causes.
Oh yeah, there was a digital pinball recreation based mostly on Infinity Gauntlet too, however I do not know the right way to even write that up. I watched footage of individuals enjoying it and couldn’t make heads or tails of what the hell is even occurring.
