With this issue, Jason Aaron and Simone Bianchi finally got to the fireworks factory, as the truth behind Thanos’ mysterious girl is revealed. Yep, it was obvious, she’s Death, but it was still a pretty awesome moment when Thanos had the rug swept out from under him.

I don’t have much else to say about this issue, the art from Bianchi was great, and the opening scene was nice and violent, but really, this issue was all about the big reveal and then the ending, as Thanos decides to destroy his home planet, Titan. I suppose this is to be expected when a series reaches what was inevitable, but it’s still very well-told, and even then, finds a way to be surprising, as Thanos attempts to commit suicide. Man, this is a dark series.

I still find it odd how this series has completely avoided showing Thanos’ brother, Starfox on screen. I guess his lameness doesn’t really fit in with the tone of the book, or perhaps they don’t want to confuse things for the Avengers movie sequel. I don’t mind really, since, as I said, Starfox is kind of dumb, but I think if anyone could have made him work, it would have been Jason Aaron.

I’m very interested to see what #5 is like, and just how bloody it can get. I never much cared for Thanos before this series, considering him to be a Darkseid rip-off, but now that I know his back-story, I think he’s a great, interesting villain.

Damn you for making agree with Chap.

This series has been ok, but, I prefer the nuances that cam along with Thanos's original origin.

And seriously the only thing Darkseid is better at than Thanos is failing.

Thanos > Jobberseid

The only foe that Darkseid hasn't lost to is the Legion of Super-Heroes in The Great Darkness Saga. :lol:

this by a lot.

Unlike Darkseid, Thanos has actually managed to win and even destroy the universe at one point.

Yeah, the Marvel Universe is totally destroyed right now. :roll:

Supervillains aren't meant to win, to judge them by that criteria is foolish.

Just a quick note on the whole Thanos vs. Darkseid argument: I don't remember Thanos ever being beaten because somebody sang him to death. :smt102

Did I say right now? No. I said at one point.

Thanos doesn't need a whole bunch of henchmen to take on all the heroes of the Marvel U. He doesn't need Parademons.

Hell, he doesn't even need the Gauntlet.

(He's so vindictive that at one point he gave Deadpool immortality just so Deadpool would never see Death again)
