Thanos was born on Saturn's moon Titan, a world believed uninhabited but actually the home to an advanced offshoot of humanity. Thanos was dissatisfied by the peaceful world, and left to begin his mission of conquest. In his travels, he met the entity known as Death and became enamored with her. He soon devoted all of his energies to pleasing her, and eventually became her servant. Desiring to be her equal, he sought the Infinity Gems, six stones of great power that would give him control over the universe. 

When he finally obtained the six gems and placed them on his Infinity Gauntlet, he gained unlimited power. To impress Death, he extinguished half the lives in the universe, and it took the combined might of many superheroes to finally stop him. He was divested of the Gauntlet, and placed on an uninhabited planet where he could cause no harm. He had since escaped, and it is only a matter of time before he menaces the universe in Death's name once again.

Thanos is a Marvel legend and a badass. Yet, I always found something humorous about his design as well. His original blue and orange spandex suit is comical, yet iconic to us old school Marvel fans. And don't you dare diss the loud suit, because Thanos does posses the Infinity Gauntlet, after all... I mean, that thing gives you Unlimited Power!!!

Thanos's fighting game debut was pretty well done. He made a perfect boss for Marvel Super Heroes. For some reason, Thanos decided to skip the rest of the early Vs. Series until he finally reappeared in MVC2. Even though he was slightly underpowered in MVC2 (understatement of the century)... he had some crafty / cheap traps and infinite combos utilizing his "bubble assist". His MVC2 supers are pretty cool as well. His later appearance in MVC: Infinite was actually pretty solid... he fared better than certain other returning characters in that game. Needless to say, Thanos's appearance in the live action Avengers took his design and popularity to new heights! It's still wild for this 80s / 90s kid to believe that Thanos actually made it to the big screen.
