Was Thanos correct, Hawkeye? An Investigation into the Disputed Avengers Mug

WARNING: The first two episodes of Hawkeye contain spoilers. Because Hawkeye premieres two years after the events of Avengers: Endgame, the writers of the new Disney(plus) series can allude to the dramatic final fight between Earth’s Mightiest Heroes and Thanos. A “Thanos Was Right” mug carried by Clint Barton was an unintentional Easter egg inserted in Hawkeye’s first two episodes (Jeremy Renner). Fans were astonished to see the mug, given that the Mad Titan was responsible for wiping out half of the universe’s sentient life. Obviously, the immediate reaction would be to declare Thanos to be wrong. On the other hand, the mug wouldn’t exist if there wasn’t a portion of the public who supports Thanos’ genocidal tactics.

Was Thanos entirely correct? The genuine response isn’t as simple as a yes or no. Hawkeye’s flashback to the Battle of New York in 2012 exemplifies the Marvel Cinematic Universe’s distinctive connective fiber. Even while Loki was leading the Chitauri charge, Thanos was covertly pulling the strings in the background, as revealed in the post-credits scene in 2012’s Avengers. In Avengers: Infinity War, Marvel Studios led up to the Mad Titan’s first encounter with Earth’s heroes, and he was also successful in acquiring the Infinity Stones to accomplish his nefarious purpose of balancing the world.

Depending on whose side of The Blip you were on, you could argue that your life was better post-Snap than it was before. The Falcon and the Winter Soldier discussed this with the terrorist group the Flag Smashers. In the aftermath of The Blip, Karli Morgenthau and her Flag Smashers created new lives for themselves. The GRC enabled the revived to return to their land, property, and jobs once everyone who had been Snapped had returned, leaving the Flag Smashers dispossessed and without a home. The Flag Smashers, not willing to wait on the sidelines, fought for refugees, but they could just as well have been fighting on Thanos’ side.

Because America is full of opportunistic people wanting to profit from every circumstance, it’s not shocking to see someone selling Thanos merchandise. It’s even more odd to see Clint Barton holding the infamous cup, especially considering Hawkeye’s whole family was murdered by the Mad Titan.
