The thing about The Avengers is, that they are very powerful, but they aren't very stable. There'll definitely be some people who are gonna shake them up in the next installment!"
People are way jumping the gun with this MoE talk. There are villains in the comics than just the MoE.
I'm guessing we're going to have a similar situation with Captain Marvel #25-27 where Thanos hired some guys (Super Skrull and someone else, can't remember) to trick Marvel, make him feel like he was being betrayed by his girlfriend, and leave him in a weakened state. Having 5-6 villains take on the Avengers on top of having the Maximoff twins in the movie on top of having Thanos be the mastermind ON TOP of possibly having some of the Guardians in it is ****ing ridiculous. We'll get one or two guys working for Thanos who are able to trick the Avengers and turn them against each other, but that's it imo.
We'd do better to look back and find some villains from the Avengers comics that have successfully turned the Avengers against each other (...like Wanda did in Avengers Disassembled) than to go off the deep end and say this points to the MoE. Not to mention that this all has to fit in with what happens in GotG, and I find it hard to believe the MoE play any role in that at all.

No he's not. He's no bigger than any other multi-issue, classic Avengers villain. I think people take the Infinity Gauntlet stuff out of context.
