10 Gloves More Powerful Than The Infinity Gauntlet

 

I had this poster in my room. I used to have to take it down every night after my parents said goodnight to me and put it up in the morning before they came in to wake me. It was quickly replaced by a poster of the Jackson 5. Unfortunately, a few years later the same scenario played out.

 

2) Freddy Krueger’s Gauntlet.

Was there anything scarier in 1984 than the Freddy’s knife glove?  Created in a dingy boiler room, this glove had the power to keep kids awake and shaking for days, only to fall asleep with horrible dreams of being ripped apart by a burned faced kid killer with knives for fingernails… both on screen AND in real life.  The worst part was in real life… on screen the kids died, but in real life, us kids had to wake up and repeat the process night after night. Our poor parents would scold us and swear they would never let us watch another one and we would agree through tears…until we saw previews for the next one and begged to see it.

How It Could Defeat Thanos: He’s gatta sleep sometime, and that’s when the Avengers sneak in, dress him like a horny teenage girl, teleport him to a princess bed on Elm Street, and let Freddy do his magic. When Thanos wakes up… or doesn’t, all Captain America has to do is pick up the dismembered glove off the floor, shake the severed hand out of it and head home whistling “one two Freddy’s coming for you, three four better shut the door…”
