    I loved the line from Tony
    "We need another power source.. hey! Hey! We could miniaturized an arc reactor... nah that's a dumb idea."

    I just thought of a "What if...?" they should do... What if Ironman actually had a secret identity? Cause in most stories the general public are lead to believe that Ironman is a robot rather than a suit of armor. It's still publicly known that the Ironman is built by Stark Industries but it's not publicly known that Tony is actually flying around inside if armor. It's not even publicly known about the Arc Reactor in his chest. I just want to see a version of Ironman 2 where he actually tries to keep a secret identity instead of ending the first movie with him saying "I am Ironman he actually reads the speech he was given to tell the press that would likely refer to Ironman as a robot.

    Wow, good thing for Killmonger that Tony Stark, the world's foremost weapons designer and genius, decided to have his robot try to take out Killmonger using karate and not any sort of weapons.

    Was anyone else thinking Killmonger might end up with a suit and become this universe's Iron Monger?

    I really enjoyed this episode, really cool to see Killmonger rise through different means and really showed off his stragetic mind.

    Queen General was also a badass surprise.

    Was expecting the drone to use the taser wave on Killmonger but I guess its programming under-estimated Killmonger.

    Yeah, this episode really makes the case that Killmonger is beyond redemption. If you were going to see a good version of Killmonger, this is it. He gets a chance at a different life with Tony and throws it away. He's accepted by his Uncle, and uses that to manipulate his way further along his goals. It's going to take too much back story and exposition for anyone to ever trust an alternate version Killmonger, especially after this episode.

    Tony really blew it on that confrontation, but this is also not our Tony. Tony learns a lot about tactics and planning after the Iron Man trilogy. This Tony is still really immature.

    It reminds me a bit of Gul Dukat from Deep Space Nine. The character just oozed charm and personality to the point that fans didn't want to think of him as a villain to the point that the writers took him down some pretty dark paths and blow every chance of some sort small remediation.

    What i mean is that these scenarios all occur in the new branches that were created after the events of Loki, that is what i meant when i said this is post-Loki, so this new Loki variant is a Loki that came into existence after He Who Remains died

    If these variant timelines were Pre-Loki, then all of this timelines would've been erased by the TVA by now, like in the Avengers murdered timeline Hope Van Dyne joining SHIELD and then dying was that timeline Nexus Event, so the TVA would've erased it long before the events of this episode even started, thus this Loki would've ceased to exist long before he even had the chance to take over the UN

    This episode, after the previous ones, really makes me wonder if somehow, some way, they knew. And I can only imagine how he felt recording these.

    It’s strange to see him die literally every time he shows up. Which likely dooms each of those multiverses as Tony’s a pretty big reason the MCU comes through the Infinity Saga.

    inciting wars while double-crossing everyone like Lelouch while cosplaying as Vegeta (Michael told prop department to style his costume that way) and designing two kinds of war robots: a main one with a V-Fin like a Gundam, and a grunt one based on the main without a V-Fin. a true weeb.

    Have you not heard Feige say you have to watch everything since some What Ifs will happen in the multiverse going forward? Please learn to Google

    Wait! What? Guy Dukat was interesting because he wasn't a two-dimensional, mustache twirling villain AND he did have that "I really hate the guy" charisma BUT I don't think the writers ever intended the guy to have any ounce of redemption. His character arc was perfect because it made him gradually darker and darker over seven years. And even the few times that he did "the right thing," he only did it for self-serving reasons. This guy did not need any redemption. His ego made redemption impossible. And it was his ego that made him such a great villain because at every turn, his ego always wanted had him trying to look like a hero.

    DS9 had the best villains of any Trek show, bar none. /End Tangent.
