We Have A Theory…On Who May Have Bought Avengers Tower (and It Isn’t Wilson Fisk)
In the next installment of our W.H.A.T series, we talk about one of the most theorized lines hidden within MArvels newest series, Hawkeye; as we discuss who may have bought Avengers Tower.
Marvel has had a dominant 2021, with Spider-Man: No Way Home continuing its seemingly endless record-setting pace, we discuss the show that just debuted its fantastic season finale a week ago.
There were a lot of prospective theories to come out of Hawkeye; the mystery of the hidden watch, the presence of Kingpin, and the future of Kate, Yelena, and Echo.
The most interesting theory that we’ve pondered, however, is something Clint says in the early episodes of the series.
When Kate asks if Clint would retreat to Avengers tower to prepare to defend themselves against the tracksuit mafia, Clint makes a remark about Tony having sold the tower; with it no longer operating as the base headquarters for the Avengers.
This led to a puzzled and disappointed reaction from Kate, and drove many viewers to ponder just who owns the massive tower; Could it be Wilson Fisk? Could it be Reed Richards covering into the famed Baxter Building prior to his debut in the Fantastic Four?
Well, We Have A Theory…on who may have bought Avengers Tower.
It definitely isn’t Wilson Fisk, with a deteriorated empire due to the blip, his appearance in Hawkeye indicates a man lacking the wealth he once had; and although Reed Richards and the Fantastic Four is a viable theory, we feel like the purchase of Avengers tower, for now, could be used as a plot point…
This is why we think the tower was purchased by a certain someone who had always competed with Tony Stark and found a premiere opportunity to buy the massive structure that once beheld his namesake.
We think the new owner of Avengers Tower is none other than Justin Hammer.
Now, I know what your think; Who? But many Marvel fans will remember Sam Rockwell’s incredible turn as the character in Iron Man 2, a role that many fans have clamored for a return to. With Stark exiting the military contracting business, it would make sense for Hammer to capitalize on his lost clientele
With Armor Wars likely pitting Rhodey’s War Machine against the newest owner of Starks mass collection of armor, it would make sense that Hammer acts as the catalyst to the entire Armor Wars series.
Our guess is that Hammer buys Avengers Tower- which houses all of Starks various Armor types- and either accidentally unleashes them against the world, or gets involved with an entity seeking to use the technology in a negative way.
But what do you think of our theory? Who may have bought Avengers Tower to you? Let us Know your own theories below!
