Thanos Rising #2 (Remember this moment forever Spoilers)

Postby Punchy » Fri May 03, 2013 11:27 am

Now, this is a Jason Aaron cosmic comic! In this issue, Thanos’ origin continues and well, Aaron brings the darkness and edge to it like only he can. We see Thanos’ intellectual curiosity grow and grow, so that, spurred on by the mysterious girl (who is obviously Death right?) he moves on from dissecting lizards and animals, to kidnapping and experimenting on people. And then at the end, he’s doing it to his own mother! It’s sick stuff, and made even better by the fact that it’s taking place in Paradise.

Titan is so idyllic and peaceful that they have no concept of murder. On his world, Thanos invented murder, he invented torture. That is a brilliant idea, and one which really shows how bad of a dude Thanos is. But crucially, Aaron is still managing at this point to make Thanos sympathetic and understandable. He’s a monster, but he doesn’t want to be. Simone Bianchi’s artwork is very strong here, the best I’ve seen from him since Seven Soldiers: Shining Knight probably, he’s perfect for the alien society of Titan. One thing I think is a bit odd about this title is that so far Thanos’ brother Starfox has been kept off screen. Is this because the character is too goofy to feature in a comic that is (presumably) aimed at people who see Avengers 2 or Guardians Of The Galaxy? Or is there something more to it? Hmmm…
