As part of the effort to make sure everybody is sick of Thanos by the time Avengers 2 hits movie screens, Marvel will be releasing a new mini-series dealing with his origin.
This reporter is always of the opinion that more Thanos is more gooder, so I'm totally excited about the new five-issue mini-series Thanos: Son of Titan that was just announced by Marvel. The series, written by Joe Keatinge and Richard Elson, makes an odd choice as far as content, as it will apparently be a heartwarming coming-of-age story about the young galactic conqueror.
"It is about how Thanos came to be," Keating told USA Today. "He ends up at the point where he's worshiping Death and destroying universes. How do you get to that head space where you're like, 'This is what I want to do with the rest of my life?'"
Little is known about the details of the plot, but the general outline is that Thanos and three friends learn the location of the dead body of a missing boy in a small town in Oregon and spend Labor Day weekend journeying to the... no wait, that's the plot to Stand By Me. We know nothing at all about this plot except that it starts out sometime before the events of Fantastic Four #1.
Expect more details to be revealed at San Diego Comic Con, or before then in spoilerific articles on Bleeding Cool.
