Marvel's Thanos Wipes Out the Simpsons In New Clip

While Thanos might've wiped out half of the life in the Marvel Cinematic Universe in Avengers: Infinity War, he turns his attention to Springfield in a new episode of The Simpsons.

On the "couch gag" that opened last night's new episode, Thanos completes the Infinity Gauntlet by taking Maggie's pacifier and using his power to wipe out almost all of the Simpsons family.

While Homer, Marge, Bart and Lisa turned into ash, Maggie survives Thanos' wrath and sits down next to the Mad Titan on the family couch. Even though the scene is short, it's not hard to imagine Thanos raising Maggie to become some kind of Gamora-esque assassin. After all, she already shot Mr. Burns.

Given the relatively limited scope of the scene, there's no telling if Grandpa Simpson, Ned Flanders or any of Springfield's many other residents survived Thanos' attack. Comic Book Guy's fate is also left uncertain, but he would likely call getting snapped away by Thanos the "Best. Death. Ever."

While the Marvel Universe has all of the Avengers to fight Thanos, Radioactive Man and Fallout Boy would probably have to deal with Thanos on their own in the world of Springfield.
