    A Helicarrier in the Distance

    Apparently, even the Agents of S.H.E.I.L.D. cannot escape the pruning ways of the universe, as quick-eyed fans noticed a helicarrier downed in the darkened distance - barely visible but clearly wedged into the landscape and seemingly inoperable. 

    Does pretty much everything end up here eventually. Seems that way.

    'Journey Into Mystery'

    There are so many Easter eggs in this episode, that even the name of the episode itself, "Journey Into Mystery," is a cheeky reference to a popular Marvel Comics title that came into prominence in the 1950s and eventually introduced us to Thor and Loki. 

    It's likely a detail lost on casual fans, but those immersed in Marvel Comics lore knew right away.

    The Living Tribunal Statue

    A lot of head-like statues showed up in Episode 5, but perhaps none were as timely and relevant as the head of the Tribunal statue that savvy fans immediately recognized.

    Considering that the Tribunal oversees all the timelines throughout the multiverse, its presence in the Void makes perfect sense.

    Yellowjacket's Helmet

    Darren Cross may not have fared that well against Hank Pym in Ant-Man, but he apparently did even worse in at least one timeline, judging from his discarded giant helmet that has become part of the desolate landscape at the end of time itself. 

    Does this mean that a giant version of Cross may still roam the Void's countryside to this day?
