Vision and Steve Rogers in Avengers: Infinity War gag reel

Sure, Vision Is Going to Save Everyone in Endgame. Sure.

This theory is dumb.

Why is there a theory that Vision is the one that saves everyone when we know that Carol Danvers is on the way? An entire theory where Vision, a dead character, is the one to save the Avengers we lost in Infinity War is not exactly my cup of tea.

Essentially the Reddit fan theory as ComicBook covers it is this: Vision has been influencing Thanos since his “death” because his mind is somehow in the Mind Stone. So, within those two minutes between Vision’s death and Thanos rewinding time and ripping the stone out of his head, Vision thought. “Quick, put my mind in the stone so then Thanos has my conscious which is Tony Stark and Bruce Banner because that makes more sense.”

The theory goes on to say that Vision can just download himself:

It follows then that Vision may have become strong enough to actually download himself into the Mind Stone without losing his unique consciousness, and could therefore expose a weakness in the Infinity Stones’ circuit of power.

Really? It’s not that this theory is bad, in fact, it is a very intelligent look at Vision as a character. The problem is that we have very capable Avengers alive and well who can probably stop Thanos all on their own, especially now that Peter Quill is not around to mess up their plan. And since Captain Marvel was called and should be coming to help the remaining Avengers. And since the Russos have promised that some dead characters will actually remain dead.

Maybe this theory gives all the glory to a character who is responsible for War Machine falling to the ground in Captain America: Civil War, even if Falcon got blamed for it. But it just doesn’t make any sense. In the time between Vision getting to Wakanda and having Shuri try and separate the stone from his head to Wanda destroying it, Vision figured out how to download his own mind into the stone? If that was the case, why wouldn’t he just tell Wanda to let Thanos take the stone so he could reverse time and stop Thanos since they clearly weren’t going to beat him?

So, if this theory is, in fact, true, that’s rude of Vision. He could have just let everyone know he figured it out and saved a lot of deaths. Instead, they all fought in a massive battle trying to save Vision for … no reason. Because they “don’t trade lives.” Also, on that note, Stephen Strange could have also given Tony Stark a hint as to what needed to be done to take on Thanos instead of just fading away like the rest of them, leaving the remaining Avengers a bit lost.

Hopefully, Carol Danvers shows up and takes on Thanos head to head. Or maybe this theory is right and Vision rewinds time far enough that Loki and the rest of our friends are alive. If not, keep this theory out of the MCU, please. If Vision was capable of causing a weakness in the circuitry of the Infinity Gauntlet, he’s a little late to that party.
