Origin[edit] Writer-artist Jim Starlin
Jim Starlin
originally conceived of Thanos
Thanos
of Titan during college psychology classes. As Starlin described:

I went to college between doing U.S. military
U.S. military
service and getting work in comics, and there was a psych class and I came up with Thanos ... and Drax the Destroyer, but I'm not sure how he fit into it, just anger management probably. So I came up to Marvel
Marvel
and [editor] Roy [Thomas] asked if I wanted to do an issue of Iron Man. I felt that this may be my only chance ever to do a character, not having the confidence that my career was going to last anything longer than a few weeks. So they got jammed into it. Thanos
Thanos
was a much thinner character and Roy suggested beefing him up, so he's beefed up quite a bit from his original sketches ... and later on I liked beefing him up so much that he continued to grow in size.[2]

Starlin has admitted the character's look was influenced by Jack Kirby's Darkseid:

Kirby had done the New Gods, which I thought was terrific. He was over at DC at the time. I came up with some things that were inspired by that. You'd think that Thanos
Thanos
was inspired by Darkseid, but that was not the case when I showed up. In my first Thanos
Thanos
drawings, if he looked like anybody, it was Metron. I had all these different gods and things I wanted to do, which became Thanos
Thanos
and the Titans. Roy took one look at the guy in the Metron-like chair and said: "Beef him up! If you're going to steal one of the New Gods, at least rip off Darkseid, the really good one!"[3]

Thanos
was born on Saturn's moon Titan, and is the child of Eternals Mentor and Sui-San. Thanos
Thanos
carries the Deviants gene, and as such shares the physical appearance of the Eternals' cousin race. At birth, his mother was shocked by his appearance and attempted to kill him. During his school years, Thanos
Thanos
was a pacifist[12] and would only play with his brother Eros (Starfox) and pets. By adolescence, Thanos
Thanos
had become fascinated with nihilism and death, worshipping and eventually falling in love with the physical embodiment of death, Mistress Death.[13] As an adult, Thanos
Thanos
augmented his physical strength and powers through his superior scientific knowledge. He also attempted to create a new life for himself by siring many children as well as becoming a pirate. He finds no fulfillment in either, until he is visited again by Mistress Death, for whom he murders his offspring and his pirate captain.[14] Cosmic Cube
Cosmic Cube
and Infinity Gems[edit] Wishing to impress Mistress Death, Thanos
Thanos
gathers an army of villainous aliens and begins a nuclear bombardment of Titan that kills millions of his race.[15] Seeking universal power in the form of the Cosmic Cube, Thanos
Thanos
travels to Earth. Prior to landing, his vessel destroys a nearby car as a family witnesses his arrival.[16] Unbeknownst to Thanos, two of the family members in the vehicle survive: the father's spirit is preserved by the Titanian cosmic entity Kronos and is given a new form as Drax the Destroyer
Drax the Destroyer
while the daughter is found by Thanos' father, Mentor, and is raised to become the heroine Moondragon. Thanos
Thanos
eventually locates the Cube, and also attracts the attention of Mistress Death. Willing the Cube to make him omnipotent, Thanos
Thanos
then discards the Cube. He imprisons Kronos and taunts Kree
Kree
hero Captain Marvel, who with the aid of superhero team the Avengers and ISAAC (a super-computer based on Titan), is eventually able to defeat Thanos
Thanos
by destroying the Cube.[17] Thanos
Thanos
later comes to the aid of Adam Warlock
Adam Warlock
in a war against the Magus and his religious empire.[18][19] During this alliance Thanos cultivates a plan to reunite with Mistress Death, and secretly siphons off the energies of Warlock's Soul Gem, and combines these with the power of the other Infinity Gems
Infinity Gems
to create a weapon capable of destroying a star. Warlock summons the Avengers and Captain Marvel
Marvel
to stop Thanos, although the plan is foiled when Thanos
Thanos
kills Warlock. The Titan regroups and captures the heroes, who are freed by Spider-Man
Spider-Man
and the Thing. Thanos
Thanos
is finally stopped by Warlock, whose spirit emerges from the Soul Gem and turns the Titan to stone.[15][20] Thanos's spirit eventually reappears to accompany a dying Captain Marvel's soul into the realm of Death.[21] The Infinity saga[edit] Thanos
Thanos
is eventually resurrected,[22] and collects the Infinity Gems once again.[23] He uses the gems to create the Infinity Gauntlet, making himself omnipotent, and erases half the living things in the universe to prove his love to Death.[24] This act and several other acts are soon undone by Adam Warlock.[25] Warlock reveals that Thanos has always allowed himself to be defeated because the Titan secretly knows he is not worthy of ultimate power. Thanos
Thanos
joins Warlock as part of the Infinity Watch and helps him to defeat first his evil[26] and then good[27] personas, and cure Thor of "warrior Madness".[28] The events above have been dubbed the "Infinity saga."[29] Other adventures[edit] Thanos
Thanos
later recruits a team of Earth-bound super-villains and puts them under the field leadership of Geatar in a mission to capture an ancient robot containing the obscure knowledge of a universal library and extract its data.[30] Thanos
Thanos
uses information from the robot to plot against and battle Tyrant, the first creation of Galactus
Galactus
turned destroyer.[31] When trapped in an alternate dimension, Thanos
Thanos
employs the aid of the brother of Ka-Zar, Parnival Plunder[32] and later the Hulk[33] to escape, although both attempts are unsuccessful. Thanos
Thanos
is eventually freed and comes into conflict with Thor, aligning himself with Mangog
Mangog
in a scheme to obtain powerful mystical and cosmic talismans which will allow him to destroy all life in the universe,[34] and during their battles Thanos
Thanos
decimates the planet Rigel-3.[35] Thanos
Thanos
then uses the heroes Thor and Genis-Vell
Genis-Vell
(Captain Marvel's son) against the death god Walker, who attempts to woo Mistress Death and then destroy the entity after being rejected.[36] Thanos
Thanos
then devises a plan to become the All-Father of a new pantheon of gods created by himself. Thanos, however, finds himself opposed by the Avengers' former member Mantis and her son Quoi, who apparently is destined to be the Celestial Messiah. Thanos
Thanos
abandons this plan after having to unite with Mistress Death to destroy the "Rot", a cosmic aberration in deep space caused by Thanos's incessant love for Death.[37] Thanos also once conducted extensive research on genetics, and after studying many of the universe's heroes and villains cloned them and gene-spliced his own DNA
DNA
into the subjects. Although he later abandons the project, five clones survive, being versions of Professor X, Iron Man, Gladiator, Doctor Strange, and Galactus
Galactus
respectively. A sixth and unnamed version of Thanos
Thanos
also appears, and it is revealed the incarnations of Thanos
Thanos
encountered in the past by Thor and Ka-Zar were actually clones. The true Thanos – with the aid of Adam Warlock, Gamora, Pip the Troll, Spider-Man, Captain Marvel, and Dr. Strange – destroys the remaining clones.[38] When the ancient Egyptian pharaoh Akhenaten uses a source of cosmic power, the Heart of the Universe, to seize power in present-day Earth (killing most of Earth's heroes in the process), Thanos
Thanos
uses a time-travel stratagem to defeat him. Thanos
Thanos
then uses the Heart of the Universe to reverse Akhenaten's actions and was also compelled to correct a flaw in the universe. Changed by the experience, Thanos advises confidant Adam Warlock
Adam Warlock
he will no longer seek universal conquest.[39] However, Marvel's Executive Editor Tom Brevoort

Thanos
meets Death, who for the first time speaks to the Titan. Death claims to be worth wooing, but says Thanos
Thanos
must offer something other than death. At the Kyln Thanos
Thanos
encounters Peter Quill, also known as Star-Lord, and the Shi'ar warrior Gladiator, who are both prisoners, and the Beyonder, who has been rendered amnesiac by its choice to assume a humanoid female form. Thanos
Thanos
battles the Beyonder, causing its mind to shut down and leaving its power trapped within a comatose physical form. Thanos
Thanos

Beyonder
on life support indefinitely in order to prevent the entity from being reborn.[43] Thanos

departs the Kyln in the company of Skreet, a chaos-mite freed from the prison. Thanos
Thanos
