The Thanos you saw in ‘Infinity War’ isn’t quite the same villain you saw in the comics. Now that the dust has settled from Avengers: Infinity War, Kya Quinn is here with a look at how the MCU Thanos compares to his comic book counterpart.

Despite all the heroes in Avengers Infinity War, Thanos clearly stole the show. Even against the combined might of the Avengers, Thanos had his plan and executed it to perfection, with the help of the Infinity Gauntlet, and Infinity Stones. As played by Josh Brolin, the villain’s powers are terrifying beyond compare and definitely did a number of all if the Marvel super heroes.

From his humble origins to his terrible powers, the intergalactic antihero is definitely compelling and helps to ensure that nearly every scene is fraught with tension and thrills.

But how does this Thanos’ origin compare to the Marvel comic book Thanos? Any comics vs. movie comparison is going to be controversial, but we can separate the Thanos facts from the fictions when it comes to his interesting history. So, if you’re curious about the character that has completely shaken up the MCU, check out Kya’s exploration of Thanos, from his comic book history to now.
