There had to be a time when the Guardians Of The Galaxy and The Avengers would meet up for Infinity War. A question many asked though was how was this going to happen? Well, we might just have our answer in one mystery woman who might just be showing up in Age Of Ultron. According to Schmoesknow the mystery woman is in fact, Mantis! You might be asking yourself who Mantis is, right? This is what the Schmoes had to say about that:
The character has strong ties to several prominent characters in Age of Ultron including Vision, Scarlet Witch, and Quicksilver. Not to mention she’s worked with the Guardians of the Galaxy before and has ties to Thanos as well. Says our source:
This would seem to make a lot of sense as she 1) has direct ties to Thanos, 2) has even stronger ties to Vision, Quicksilver, and Scarlet Witch, 3) has a personal vendetta in the comics against Klaw and, most importantly 4) has been a prominent member of both The Avengers and the Guardians of the Galaxy.
I myself was not too familiar with the character but after further research I believe this might be the way to go! I'm also going to out and say that Claudia Kim's role as Dr. Cho is just something to throw us off, and in actuality she is Mantis!
One of Mantis' powers is the ability to survive in space and she did in fact have a brief stay in Knowhere in the comics (which as we all know is that huge head in Guardians Of The Galaxy). My theory is that Mantis is there to warn the Avengers about the imminent threat against Thanos and the Infinity Stones. Mantis is also pretty heavily tied to Moondragon who I believe we got to see a glimpse of in the Age Of Ultron trailer below.
Moondragon and Mantis were both perceived by the Kree as the celestial madonnas in line to mate with the eldest Cotati. That might be important later down the road but for now let's focus back on Mantis. I believe Mantis is on Earth to gain experience and is allying the Avengers when she finds out about the Infinity Stone that HYDRA is harvesting. Mantis is sent by the Kree to Earth so she must know of the Infinity Stones and the great threat they posses for the universe. My guess is that after Age Of Ultron, Mantis reveals who she really is and decides to take the stone back to the Kree. In space she might come across the Guardians in Guardians Of The Galaxy 2 and then things start to stir up. I might be over my head but I just had to write this out. What do you think?
And check out the Age of Ultron trailer again. Go on, I know you want to!
