Marvel Answers 1 Strange Infinity War Death Mystery Forever
With a reveal of Guardians of the Galaxy, Marvel has solved a major unanswered mystery of an MCU character’s death from Avengers: Infinity War.
Marvel has finally solved a linger Avengers: Infinity War mystery of death, and in a surprising place – The Guardians of the Galaxy Christmas Special. When Thanos was killed Infinite War – both prior to the snap and those it destroyed with it – there was little ambiguity. Most of the fates were clear, but one that wasn’t happened to Taneleer Tivan, aka the Collector, after Thanos was able to take the Reality Stone from him.
The Collector only appeared briefly, but it seemed likely that he was among the Thanos who were killed Avengers: Infinity War. Until the Guardians of the Galaxy arrived on Knowhere, though Tivan appeared To be alive, Thanos already possessed the Reality Stone, and only an illusion of the Collector was seen. In a surprising turn of events The Guardians of the Galaxy Christmas Special reveals that the Guardians now hold Knowhere, while confirming that the Collector survived Infinite War.
GOTG Holiday Special reveals The Collector Survived Avengers: Infinity War
In early The Guardians of the Galaxy Christmas SpecialKraglin reflects on the fact that it’s Christmas time now, and Nebula then mentions that not only do the Wardens possess knowhere, but specifically says: “Since I bought Knowhere from The Collector…” Since the Guardians did not possess Knowhere during this time Avengers: Infinity Warthen this can only be possible if the collector has survived and continues to live The Guardians of the Galaxy Christmas Special timeline. This fits with Benicio del Toro’s belief that the collector survived Infinite Waras he said in 2018: “I think he’s alive. Yes… I think, you know, I think he’s alive. You’re talking to him!”
How the Collector is still alive after Infinity War
This confirmed that the Collector lived by it Avengers: Infinity War, the big questions are how and why. Though Thanos always claimed he wanted to bring balance to the universe, he also showed recklessness in acquiring the Infinity Stones, such as destroying Xandar and sacrificing his daughter Gamora. It seems unlikely that he would have decided to spare the Collector entirely for no reason, given that even in illusion he shows contempt for him, but Tivan was a bargainer and a great negotiator. That said, it’s entirely possible he was able to guarantee his survival in exchange for giving Thanos the Reality Stone.
Add to that the fact that the Collector is incredibly powerful. Though not explored much in the MCU, he is an elder of the universe and has lived an incredibly long life, capable of taking far more damage than a human. This continues in the comics, where it is confirmed that the Collector cannot die (he can technically be killed, but it requires destroying him on a molecular level). That could also explain how he survived Infinite War; said immortality came from Lady Death seen as a statue in Eternity in Thor: Love & Thunder and therefore exists in some form in the MCU. It’s unconfirmed if the Collector is immortal in the MCU, but either way he’s among the characters that survived Avengers: Infinity War.
