There are TONS of characters that show up in Marvel's Avengers Endgame. Most of them get at least one moment to remind the audience of why they are an awesome superhero and that we should be happy they are alive again. Now, the MVP of the episode is pretty obvious, but I want to talk about the one, tiny hero you probably missed. The rat. Which rat? Why the rat that brought back Ant-Man and made it possible for the Avengers to save the world. What are the odds? Well, you're about to find out!

  • To everyone asking whether I calculated the rats repopulating, I did and just cut it before the final draft because it got too pedantic and lost in it's own numbers. Also, we wind back up at 50 rats anyway. Here's what got cut in case you were curious: "That means that at the beginning of five years, we're dealing with 50-ish rats in Scott Lang's area, which would replenish to their population carrying capacity in the course of just a few generations. Given that rat food supplies might be lower now that there are only half the people on the world, let's assume that they don’t get back to the full 100 rat population in Scott's immediate area, but that they make a good 50% surge back up to 75 rats roving all over Scott. Realistically it's almost impossible to know for our specific area exactly how many rats would be here, but we're making our best assumption right now and I'm trying to at least give Scott a fighting chance. So over the course of the six months after the Great Snap, rats would have pretty much bounced back, given that a new generation of rat babies is ready to go every six weeks. To get our final number, we’ll assume that an average-sized rat community would have at most around 50 rats out searching for food at any given time, since about a third of them are statistically in the nest at a given time."

    • Awesome, I was going to go on one of my tangents with rat populations in given situations, such as cannibalism, ect. You'd see a spike of about 50-75% depending on the food left by the vanished, and the fact that food wouldn't go bad as fast because of bacteria is now halved as well meaning less sick, yadda yadda yadda, but it wouldn't really effect the outcome that much, and only further give Antman a slightly better chance of coming back.... but my issue... my BIGGEST issue was how in AntMan and the Wasp... his wife didn't have that effect... 🤔 that's what bothered me the most with it.

  • How i would have written this scene. Stan Lee cameo. He’s the security guard at the storage unit. He hates his job. He’s bored. Sees the van. Curious. Goes in. Curious about the quantum controller. Starts pressing buttons and boom Lang is back. Hence Stan lee saves the universe. Nice proper send off to a legend and actually makes sense. You’re welcome Hollywood

  • Idea for theory: In Endgame past Thanos came to the present with his entire army to destroy earth. He is killed along with everyone associated with him, therefore the events of Infinity War should have never happened. Now one of my friends were telling me that since Thanos is in the present, he would become present time Thanos, but I contradicted his claim stating that since they died in the present, they would have no way of going to back to the past, therefore if they are not in the past, time will move on without them and the events of Infinity War would not happen. Theory: Endgame screwed up the space-time continuum

  • I realized when thanos snapped away half of all living organisms, and five years later they're all brought back, that means the population of everything is greater than it once was because over those five years the living things would have reproduced more so the human population would be worse than it was before thanos snapped

  • None of Peters friends aged despite the fact that it had been 5 years. And no, I’m not talking about the ones who got erased, I’m talking about the ones who didn’t get erased. Scott Lang’s daughter aged and was much bigger, yet when Peter returned to school all his friends were still there and had not graduated yet. And don’t say they went back 5 years because they didn’t. They went back in time and then returned to their current timeline. Which is the one that takes place five years after Infinity War. Or after Thanos erased half of all life. So umm, yeah

  • Personally, I think it should've been Antman's buddy, Luis instead of the rat. Hear me out, after all the mess the snap had done, a lot of people's stuff still needs to get sorted out and returned, so I'd say that they managed to find and return Luis' car and as he messing around with the stuff he accidentally releases Antman in a hilarious over the top scene.

    Izzy AdamsIzzy AdamsDay ago
  • You forgot to figure how man tables and elevated surfaces like countertops or shelves there are and add the additional surface area!!! One 5sq ft table, 1 6 square foot counter top, and one shelf with 4 shelves at 2 square feet each shelf per house at a very low estimate and you might have 13 extra square feet of surface area to every 1,800 square foot home times 10,000 homes. IF there are a lot more shelves, cabinets, countertops, tables, clothes washers and driers, spaces under the sinks and above the refrigerator, or second and third floors, you probable should add at least another year to that 7 years number.

  • Did you consider the reproductive rate of rats ? After the snap there must of been less rats, now in those 5 years how many rats would have repopulated the area where people once live are now abandoned meaning more rat homes and can reproduce rapidly since there’s already a lack of exterminators before the snap
