MCU Fans Are Sharing The Weirdest Outcomes Dr. Strange May Have Saw When He Looked Into The Future

List Rules
Vote up the weird outcomes that Doctor Strange may have saw.

In Avengers: Infinity War, Doctor Strange discovered that there were millions of outcomes that resulted in Thanos winning. While we didn't see any of those outcomes play out in Avengers: Endgame, it's fun to think about what could have happened. Redditor u/Kleenex__ said, "Doctor Strange predicted 14,000,605 different outcomes for the Infinity War. What's one of the dumbest/weirdest outcomes he saw?"

    From Redditor u/LFAAMG:

    Thanos snaps his fingers to kill half of all life but accidentally kills himself too.

    From Redditor u/Jaysami:

    Wow, I haven't thought about the avengers disrupting Thanos so much [that] he accidentally kills everyone.

    From Redditor u/tired_obsession:

    He was actually very surprised he was alive too, when he did the snap. Totally expected himself to be dead. I believe the directors commented on this fact.

    From Redditor u/thelatereviewer:

    There's two outcomes where they won but in one of them Doctor Strange has to die so he tries to shift it to another outcome.

    From Redditor u/TheHuntMan676:

    In his movie, the Ancient One says that you cannot see past your death. If there was one timeline where he did die he wouldn't have any clue if they won or not because he couldn't see the end. He has to be alive in the timeline where they won because he was the one using the time stone.

    From Redditor u/MyOwnerIsntReal:

    Korg somehow gets the stones, and when he clicks his fingers instead of wiping out half of all life, half of all life find a pamphlet in their pocket telling them about the revolution.

    From Redditor u/Democrab:

    One person is dusted, however. A specific Fortnite player.

    What If... It Provided A Different Solution?

    From Redditor u/[deleted]:

    The infinity stones, instead of killing half of the population to disperse the resources, creates 1.5 times the resources. Thanos knew this but wanted the superheroes there to celebrate and help spread it safely. Dr. Strange felt this was anticlimactic.

    From Redditor u/InfiniteSalad6:

    What a great solution this would have been, like why didn’t he just do this to begin with.

    From Redditor u/Aule30:

    Because according to Malthusian principals it wouldn’t have solved anything. If anything it would make things worse because population growth is exponential, and adding a fixed amount of resources (even if x3 or x5) is still just adding a fixed constant. All you are doing is pushing out the curve and stalling the problem.

    Thanos was trying to convince people that unchecked population growth was bad, thinking that by showing the benefits the universe would limit growth going forward on their own.

    From Redditor u/EvanTheVanKeeper:

    Thanos kills Ant-Man in the snap.

    From Redditor u/[deleted]:

    Thanos kills the rat.

    From Redditor u/MrTristano:

    Thanos kills the security guy.

    From Redditor u/emofishermen:

    My theory was that the quantum realm counts as a different dimension & thus the stones wouldn't affect it.

    What could've gotten Scott tho was if Thanos snapped a few seconds later when he was pulled out. even if he survived, he might've not realized how the quantum realm could help them.
