Article Two - S5-E19

Character mistake: During Garth's filibuster, the Marvel characters come into the Star Wars universe because Thanos is using the Infinity Gauntlet's Reality Gem to cross realities. The gem allows the wielder of the Gauntlet to MOLD reality to his desire, but an Infinity Gauntlet does not work outside it's home universe/dimension, so Thanos wouldn't be able to "jump from different realities" with it. Someone that well-versed in the Marvel Comics universe would know this.
