Is any comic necessary?

I think with Thanos playing a starring role in the latest Marvel crossover, and also the movies, it makes sense that they'd want to be able to point readers to an easily accessible, modern origin, that doesn't have too much baggage in it.


When the previous version of the character is more complex and better in just about every way, then yes.

This is a dumbed down version of Thanos.

Yeah, that statement more than any other has me not wanting to read this series. I keep think about how the Star Wars prequels tried to make Darth Vader more likable.

Read these 5 issues on the plane today...

While no one will ever convince me that Thanos isn't just a rip-off of Darkseid, I will say that Thanos is and always has been a bad-ass to the Nth degree and has deserved his place as one of Marvels most infamous villains.

Until this series.

To paraphrase Captain Jean Luc Picard from Chain of Command part II...

Whenever I look at Thanos now, I won't see a powerful Titan warrior. I will see a six year old boy who is powerless to protect himself.


Why in the hell would Marvel turn him into a tragic figure?

Its the same with the Zombie remake of Halloween

Thanos works best as a force of nature, now he's killer with a bad childhood
