Thanos Rising by Jason Aaron

This is a graphic novel about how the comic book character from Marvel Universe, Thanos, became what he is.

I got this miniseries on single comic book issues but I am doing the review on the TPB edition to make an overall review about the whole story.

I was really excited to read this since I wanted to know the past history of Thanos and being able to recognize his own unique personality apart from being basically the Marvels response for DC Comics Darkseid (that it could be a Marvels character if they didnt let go Jack Kirby).

Honestly I wanted to have a deeper knowledge about this character, and well, honestly, I am still wanting that.

The original concept for the miniseries, the art and some dialogues were really good, but in an overall appreciation, it failed to give me something original to watch Thanos as something else than a pale shadow of DC Comics Darkseid.

I dont want to start a war here. I am sure that Thanos must be something quite different than Darkseid, but here, in this particular miniseries, I didnt get it. Sorry.

And its not like they wrote something equal to Darkseids past. No, they didnt do that. However, they didnt do something so original neither. If you look for stories like Psycho, Star Wars Darth Vader, some stuff from the re-imagined Battlestar Galactica, and the basic cliches of I am bad because I kill a lot of living things, well, you will have the core of this miniseries.

Also, I think that the creative team didnt know how much effective pages they have per issue, since a very shocking big image which it could be a perfect cliffhanger on each issue, its kinda diminished of its own impact when you have a couple of pages more on each issue.

If there is something to learn from this, maybe its that some people born bad, they dont need awful experiences on their lives to get bad, some of them are bad since birth, they just didnt know it. And well, any excuse is as good as anything to unleash the inner monster.

Entertaining reading but it didnt fulfill my initial expectations.

Top 10 Nicest Things Thanos Has Ever Done

Thanos is set to be the biggest bad guy the Marvel Cinematic Universe has ever seen. In fact, when Thanos becomes the primary antagonist for.

Proceed at your own risk. Just take a look at the evidence. Not destroy it. His primary interest is not claiming all the power and riches for himself. What he wants is to halt the destruction of the planets caused by overpopulation and create abundance, while eradicating poverty and ultimate, inevitable annihilation.

Thanos is a fictional supervillain appearing in American comic books published by Marvel Comics. Thanos is one of the most powerful villains in the Marvel Universe and has clashed with many heroes including the Avengers , the Guardians of the Galaxy , the Fantastic Four , and the X-Men. The character has also appeared in various comic adaptations, including animated television series and video games. Writer-artist Jim Starlin originally conceived of Thanos of Titan during college psychology classes. As Starlin described:.

Whatever the fan theories say, it goes without saying that Thanos will not win-out in Avengers: Endgame. Redditor ak2sup believes that Kronos, a villain that has so far not appeared in the franchise, will arrive to help the superhero team take on Thanos. The fan theory suggests that he will be the one who supplied the Avengers with the wrist devices that were spotted on set and in the new poster, said to be time travelling instruments. Clues abound, too. I think we are missing some big pieces of Endgame puzzle and have been going in wrong direction all along well, let me explain-. Infinity war revolves around Thanos collecting the 6 infinity stones and doing snap which led to decimation, you will recognize that some major plot points of Infinity War were taken from Jim starlin's 'Infinity Gauntlet', In that same comic the Snap is also reversed. I think Endgame will take some plot points from IG comic in which one of the Cosmic entity aka Kronos was also involved, whom i'm going to talk about and this is where things get interesting, I believe that Kronos is ultimately the big bad of Endgame, i k he is good guy in Comics but its MCU.

Thanos in 'Avengers: Infinity War'. The main villain of Avengers: Infinity War , Thanos, is a complex character who illustrates the depth of modern superhero movies. The story isn't a simple tale of good-versus-evil, but a battle of ideology. The bad guy explains why they do what they do, so although you'll disagree with their reasoning, you can at least understand the motivations behind their actions. Thanos is a god-like being who travels from world to world, killing the inhabitants. Why might halving a population make the world a better place?

Thanos is set to be the biggest bad guy the Marvel Cinematic Universe has ever seen. In fact, when Thanos becomes the primary antagonist for the big screen heroes instead of hiding in the shadows, it will take nearly every hero Marvel has put in the movies so far to take him down. That fearsome presence is inspired by his long running feud with… well, just about everyone in the comics. There is the rare occasion that Thanos is even good. Known as The Mad Titan, he quests for ultimate power, wanting at times to alleviate boredom, and, at others, to impress the love of his very long life. Even if it did, evil guys can have soft spots too. Thanos often proves that he can do the right thing when it comes down to the very fabric of reality being torn.

    Thanos is not a typical bad guy -- and neither are the Avengers typical positioned as the good guys within the Marvel Cinematic Universe.

    “Oh crap, maybe Thanos WAS the good guy” says Avengers spokesman
