You can now buy an Infinity Gauntlet meat tenderiser
It's fair to say that, of all the magical and awesome artefacts in comics, the Infinity Gauntlet is probably the coolest. After all, it took more than 100 years and over a dozen Marvel movies for the big purple tyrant Thanos to assemble it fully. But when he finally did, it definitely didn't disappoint.
Check out the awesome thing that happens if you Google 'Thanos' right now:
Thanos was already a real powerhouse, effortlessly beating the tar out of the Hulk, but when he gathered all the Infinity Stones and placed them in the gauntlet, he gained godlike powers and killed off half the universe with a snap of his fingers.
As a result of its appearance in Avengers: Infinity War and Avengers: Endgame, plenty of comic book geeks the world over have been clamouring to get their hands on their very own Infinity Gauntlet. You could buy a cheap plastic replica one from a store of course ... or you could get something with some real weight, heft and utility.
Here's some sneaky "illegal" behind the scenes footage filmed by star Chris Pratt:
Yes, a group of boffins over at Firebox have created the Marvel-themed gadget you never knew you needed: the Infinity Gauntlet Meat Tenderiser. Check out that craftsmanship. Tony Stark himself couldn't have done better!
Made from heavy-duty, gold-tinted stainless steel, this badass glove can smash red meat, pork, poultry into tender deliciousness with ease, and make you look like the Mad Titan while you do so. There's even an internal silicone grip inside, and the underside features spike-textured knuckles for extra damage - I mean - to ensure extra tastiness.
Check out a sneak peak of Avengers: Endgame below:
The product's listing on Firebox's website reads: "Just ask Thanos and he'll tell you a perfectly balanced meal requires a well-tenderised slab of meat Fun isn't something one considers when flattening a raw sirloin steak, but wielding the Infinity Gauntlet Meat Tenderiser is sure to put a smile on your face. You can't erase half the universe with a click of your fingers, but you can pound red meat, pork, poultry and superheroes into submission."
However, this isn't the weirdest Thanos-related thing to have emerged on the internet in the aftermath of the Avengers premiere. Recently, Thanos' actor Josh Brolin shared a bizarre series of nude images of the big lilac baddie.
