Shuri Actually Did Save Vision In 'Infinity War'Photo: Avengers: Infinity War / Walt Disney Studios Motion Pictures
From Redditor u/Iwillsmashu:
Evidence that Shuri actually did save Vision. As soon as the attack happens, Shuri switches from rearranging individuals pathways to copying and uploading Vision's primary sections. The connections disappear as soon as the upload is complete. There are 6 main links connecting each sector of Vision's "brain." Each connection goes from orange to blue when each upload is initialized. Another sector is uploaded and the connection disappears. And just to show the upload was completed successfully, all six sectors flash blue.
Each one of Vision's sectors represents one of his creators. 1. Tony Stark 2. Bruce Banner 3. Ultron 4. Dr. Helen Chow 5. Jarvis 6. Thor
Each of Vision's creators represent an aspect of him. Tony-Resourcefulness, Bruce-Compassion, Ultron-Fear, Dr. Chow-Intelligence, Jarvis-Rationality, Thor-Strength.Interesting theory?

Vision Helped Captain America Break Into The RaftPhoto: Captain America: Civil War / Walt Disney Studios Motion Pictures
From Redditor u/bhamv:
So, at the end of Civil War, Cap breaks into the Raft and rescues his imprisoned comrades Falcon, Hawkeye, Ant-Man, and Wanda Maximoff. How did Cap pull this off though? The Raft is in the middle of the ocean, and is kept submerged when people aren't going in and out. Furthermore, the Raft is designed to hold enhanced and superpowered individuals, likely up to and including the likes of the Hulk. Security would definitely be tight there. Not to mention Cap's one of the most wanted fugitives in the world, so any sign of him in the prison would probably lead to a complete lockdown. Finally, Cap has no shield at this point in time, and we do see that the Raft's guards are armed with guns. How would he protect himself against bullets without his shield? This is made even more difficult by the fact that Cap almost certainly would not be willing to kill innocent guards to break out the arrested Avengers.
So, Cap probably had help. The person (or people) who helped him would need to be able to reach the Raft out in the ocean, be able to circumvent any security systems placed in their way, and would not be stopped by bullets. Cap was last seen in Wakanda, so perhaps T'Challa helped him? The Black Panther would be able to reach the Raft, because he has his own aircraft, and his vibranium suit is bulletproof. However, he'd still be stymied by the security systems, and the king of Wakanda going on a prison break in a UN facility would probably lead to unwanted political consequences. So T'Challa is probably out.
What about Vision then? Vision can fly to the prison, and phase through any security systems they put in his way. He can also either let bullets phase through him, or simply allow them to bounce off. Therefore, if Cap had help in his prison break, then it most likely came from Vision. Cap could've waited on a nearby boat or airplane, allowed Vision to go in first to take down security, and then gone in after the coast was clear.
Why would Vision help? Well, Wanda was being held in there, and he probably wouldn't like that.Interesting theory?

Thor Saw Thanos Coming And Helped Tony Build VisionPhoto: Avengers: Age of Ultron / Walt Disney Studios Motion Pictures
From Redditor u/SamikshaRajput:
Thor saw Thanos coming. He knew that he would come for the Infinity Stone and therefore helped Tony build vision (who had the mind stone). If you actually see Avengers: Age of Ultron, you'd see that in Thor's dream he see's the end coming and not only that but he sees the infinity stones too. To know better he goes into the water where if you actually see there's a hand and the infinity stones. Right after that scene we see Thor trying to save the experiment that Tony Stark and Dr Banner were working on and let Vision be born because he saw something and Vision is an android so there's possibility that he is in the stone and probably Vision was the one through whom Thanos saw the younger version of Gamora scene.Interesting theory?

The True Villain In 'Infinity War' Is The Mind StonePhoto: Avengers: Age of Ultron / Walt Disney Studios Motion Pictures
From Redditor u/zaneman777:
My theory is that the mind stone is alive (Red Skull mentioned the soul stone was wiser then the others supports that the other stones have sapience) can see the future (as seen in the visions it gives) and saw it's own destruction and set Thanos on the whole quest for the gauntlet and killing off half the universe was just to reverse time and save it from destruction. Or it just hates life.
So I have been going through the series again and been noticing that every time the mind stone is involved there is somebody who wants to kill everybody or at least a great deal of people. The power the stone has to control people (as seen in Avengers with Barton) made me take another look at who was around the stone. The mind stone was in Thanos' possession before the events of Avengers and gives the stone to Loki. (This may be how he became the Mad Titan) Loki has the mind stone and wants a war on Earth. Thor the whole time is confused about his behavior and is calling him back to sanity. As the audience we don't think much but Thor acts like this is a big change.
Shield (Hydra ) was in possession of the stone in Winter Soldier (Age of Ultron shows this) and they hatch a plan to wipe out anyone who may be a threat. Stark is compelled by Scarlet Witch (who got her powers from the mind stone) to make Ultron. Ultron who came from the mind stone has only been alive for a few days and wants to kill everybody. Vision is hard cause he seems good and is on the side of life. But in Civil War he is distracted and nearly kills War Machine. (Also there was a conversation between Stark and Rogers about the elevator not being worthy I feel like that is a hint)
In Infinity War they had weapons that disabled the stones ability to allow Vision to phase and he seemed weaken the whole movie.
The final proof that I want to show is a scene in Avengers when every one is fighting (Rogers says without the suit what are you) it pans to the scepter (mind stone to imply that it was corrupting the team). Edit: I just remembered that when Thor comes to charge Vision in AOU he says that he has had a vision and at the center of all of it is that and he points at the mind stone then says that is an infinity stone. I feel this is a huge clue.Interesting theory?
