    We’ve all kinda of accepted it now -- Iron Man made the ultimate sacrifice, outsmarting Thanos, gathering the Infinity Stones and making the snap to eliminate him and his army for good. But WHY exactly did if have to be Iron Man? If the snap eliminated Thanos and ended the war against him, why couldn’t another hero use the Infinity Gauntlet instead? We’re mostly asking this question to Doctor Strange and his multiple visions of the future.
    Either way -- there could have been multiple Avengers who used the stones instead of Tony and a majority of them could have prevented their own death, along with the loss of Iron Man in the process. We’ve seen the power of the Stormbreaker bust through a full-fledge stone attack during Infinity War so if he held the axe in the opposite hand, maybe the weapon would have absorbed some of the energy instead of it directly impacting Thor.She carried ships. She destroyed ships. She glowed in the night. She got a haircut. She’s Captain Marvel and she clearly showcased why she is one of the most powerful superheroes in all of the MCU! When Captain Marvel returned from her mysterious adventures in outer space, she was all fight, barely breaking a sweat as she on a massive Thanos headbutt. Star-Lord could have worn the Infinity Gauntlet and stopped Thanos -- becoming the ultimate hero in Avengers: Endgame. Done laughing? Well, don’t go to the next video yet -- just hear us out for a moment. Watch to see all these heroes and several others to learn who could have used the Infinity Stones!

    I think that most of the superheroes are not worthy to use the infinity gauntlet to snap:
    Thor: because he wants to revenge from
    Thanos; because he killed loki and it may make something worse.
    Captain marvel: because she doesn’t know that nick fury is alive and she wants to revenge from thanos because she saw what did he do in the other plants and galaxies.
    Starlord, nebula and groot : he is not fit to snap because he wants to get revenge from thanos through killing gamora.
    Captain America: because black widow sacrificed herself to get the soul stone.
    Winter soldier and war machine: because they can’t handle the power of the infinity stones and they are not so ambitious to snap.
    Ant man: because he’s so impulsive to be the hero and show the people that he is the hero.
    Scarlet witch: she wants to get revenge from thanos because he killed vision.
    So that, I think that ironman is the best one to snap.

    See, it's been long since confirmed that Fat Thor wasn't in the physical condition necessary to handle such power. If he was in shape and up to his full potential, maybe, but he wasn't.
    Moreso, it's also been long since confirmed that Stormbreaker isn't actually more powerful than the blast from all of the stones. He just caught Thanos off guard

    Umm no because doctor strange said that there was only one way that they would win and he didn’t tell iron man because he wouldn’t do it......

    The thing is, Dr Strange said there was only one chance so he gave away the stones to save Tony. If he hadn't Thanos would've killed Tony there and then. So if anyone else was to do the snap, Iron Man would be dead anyway

    The reason it had to be Iron Man was that Robert Downey Jr. was the highest paid actor in all the MCU, and if you had to kill off someone, might as well be the one who costs the same as any 3 others salary. That's the real reason, or we can look at comic book threads to try to reconstruct another...

    IMO, the best choice for the story would have been Quill. It would have been a good arc for his character, whether he lived or died. I really hate them killing Tony just because RDJr's contract was up and he made too much money. He also MADE THE MCU WHAT IT IS TODAY! (stipulated with huge amounts of help)

    No Tony was the only one who had nano tech on so he was the only one steal the stones. And the snap wasnt planned by the heroes, the original plan was to get it to the van

    I believe Dr. Strange went beyond the events of Edngame and realized that something horrible would happen should Tony survive. Think about it, the smartest man on Earth discovered time travel. Who knows what other devices he would be able to develop with this new knowledge, but whatever he would create, it could prove devastating for their universe and even other universes, who knows.
    My vest guess, is that the only way Dr. Strange found to prevent the power of time travel to fall into the wrong hands, was for Tony to die, thus killing two birds with one stone

    • Erick Eudave

      Besides, at Tony's funeral, pretty mich everyone is looking rather sad (Tony died, after all), but if you look at Dr. Strange, he doesn't look sad at all, as if it was something that had to be done

    You truly are forect but Tony is now 54 and he is getting old. The cause of how iron man died was because he was either getting old and retiring or starting a new series. We all will miss Tony Stark. We all know Tom Holland as his character spider man will miss Stark. As known on TVclip for all the music videos as in the Lovely song by billie eilish ft. Khalid, where it shows clips of Stark and Peter's memories the good and bad. Other heros still could've snapped the infinity stones but instead the marvel creators decided Stark was to do it

    Or all the heroes could have formed a human chain on both sides of Tony just like what the Guardians of the Galaxy did. Problem solve and everyone gets to live.
