Thanos | Comics

As he is known as ‘The Mad Titan’ across the universe, his actions doesn’t suggest otherwise. Among the race of the eternal Titans, Thanos was born as a mutant with monstrous form, who can also absorb cosmic energy to use at his will. Not only he had a craving for power but he also was the strongest than the rest of his race and is soon exiled from the society for nurturing violence. In his quest for power he eventually developed a fascination over Death and it becomes an intense obsession upon meeting her in person. To win Death’s affection, Thanos nuked on Titan, causing the remaining Eternals to band against him.

He longed for gathering more power, so he obtained the Cosmic Cube, leading Captain Marvel and The Avengers to oppose him. Thanos came back with his re-birth only to win Death’s love and this time he collected all six of the Soul Gems to threaten the existence of the universe by wielding them all in the Infinity Gauntlet. It took all the efforts of Silver Surfer, Doctor Strange and all the heroes of earth just to stand against him.

He then formed an alliance with Adam Warlock to make sure an evil future version of him never becomes a threat to his plans. Thanos also enlisted Gamora for his plans but she eventually left and joined Guardians of the Galaxy to fight cosmic threats like him. Thanos caused the Infinity War and Infinity Crusade that shook the universe. Then forming his own ‘Black Order’, he attempted to invade Earth when The Avengers were out on space facing The Builders (Infinity).
