Comic Facts about Thanos to Convince you that He might be Alive After Avengers Endgame

Many of us are curious about how strong Thanos is without the infinity gauntlet. As we see in Avengers Endgame that he is about to kill three of the mightiest heroes of the earth(Thor, Captain America, Ironman) even without a single infinity stone. The reality is that he is the most impressive comic book Character ever. Below comic facts about Thanos reveals that Avengers are lucky to defeat him.

Belongs to Super powered Race Called Eternals

According to comics, there is a race called Titan which belongs to Saturn's moon. Titans are Eternals and naturally have strength, speed, and durability that far surpass human levels. Thanos is a rare member of his species, meaning he was born with abilities even greater than the average Eternal. Not only this, he spent years augmenting himself through cybernetics and other methods, and the results are rather terrifying.

He’s Stronger than the Hulk

Although technically the Hulk’s strength has no upper limit - the angrier he gets, the stronger he gets - he would have to be madder than ever before to even approach the base strength of Thanos.

He’s A Literal World-Breaker

A number of Marvel characters have the brute power to destroy entire planets, but few have the temperament to actually follow through with such a horrific act. Thanos is one of the rare individuals who fall into both categories, and he smashes his share of ecosystems.

Thanos is so powerful that he has a number of options when it comes to planet-wrecking - he can break a planet apart with his raw strength, with his energy projections, or by throwing his opponent through the planet’s core, which he does on numerous occasions. 

Individual Infinity Stones Aren’t Powerful Enough To Stop Thanos

Thanos is most famous for his quest to collect the Infinity Stones and complete the Infinity Gauntlet, and there’s a good reason for his obsession. The Infinity Gauntlet is one of the few items in the universe that actually carries more power than the Mad Titan himself.

While the individual Infinity Stones may offer an enormous upgrade to the average mortal being, they’re rather inconsequential from Thanos’s perspective. On one memorable occasion, Thor takes possession of the Power Stone and goes mad with, well, power, but Thanos is still able to easily defeat him.

He Can Knock People Out Without Ever Touching Them

Although he never minds getting his hands dirty, Thanos doesn’t actually have to make physical contact with his opponents to utterly destroy them. Like many cosmic characters, Thanos is capable of manipulating and controlling his massive internal energies and projecting them out of his body as a concussive force.

These blasts can be further harnessed and enhanced by his “space-chair,” but that’s usually not necessary for Thanos. He uses his energy projection to knock out the likes of the Hulk, Thor, and even Galactus.

Strong Enough To Bust Up Galactus And His Heralds

Galactus is the Devourer of Worlds, one of the most powerful entities in all of Marvel Comics. Although Galactus is older than the universe itself and eats planets for breakfast, Thanos still doesn’t look at him as much of a challenge. The two battle on a number of occasions and Thanos usually takes the win or at least manages a draw. One potential future of the Marvel Universe features a climactic final battle between the two that ends with Thanos viciously decapitating Galactus.

Thanos also doesn’t hold much respect for Galactus’s mighty heralds or their vaunted “Power Cosmic,” as he beats the Silver Surfer to death on two separate occasions.

Asgardian Might Has Little Effect On Thanos

The Gods of Asgard were once considered the top of the Marvel food chain, but things have since changed. The entire pantheon offers little in the way of a challenge for Thanos, who has a long history of beating up Thor, the God of Thunder.

Thanos takes Thor’s worst - including lightning strikes and direct blows from Mjolnir -  and comes back grinning each and every time. At one point, Thanos battles Thor’s father, Odin, to a standstill, and he gives every indication he would have won had their conflict continued.

He Inherited Scientific Genius From His Father

Thanos isn’t just stronger than all the heroes of the Marvel Universe, he’s also smarter than them. The Eternals, like the Asgardians, are significantly more scientifically advanced than humanity, and Thanos’s father, A’Lars, was one of their greatest minds.

Thanos inherits some serious scientific prowess from his father, and his intelligence surpasses the level of Earth’s smartest individuals, like Tony Stark and Bruce Banner, at a young age. He uses his brainpower to invent a number of cybernetic enhancements for himself, along with other tools to aid him in his various space-conquests.

He’s A Magic Mad Titan

As if Thanos’s supreme power and intelligence weren’t intimidating enough, he’s also a master of the mystic arts. While Thanos isn’t quite as powerful a sorcerer as Doctor Strange or Loki, he has a number of magic tricks up his sleeve. He turns some of his opponents to stone, and he can also teleport anywhere in the universe.

Thanos can also cast curses, like the time he curses Deadpool with immortality for horning in on Thanos’s woman, Death.

He’s Doubly Immortal

Although Thanos dies - or appears to die - on a few occasions, he can be considered functionally immortal. In fact, all Eternals are biologically immortal: they can’t die of any natural causes, contract any diseases, or age beyond adulthood. All Eternals also have an accelerated healing factor which allows them to recover from most bodily harm.

In addition to these other life-extending abilities, Thanos is cursed by Death to never enter her realm, and therefore is completely immortal. He can’t really die, and if he does, it doesn’t last for long.

Thanos Lays Waste To Entire Multiverses

For obvious reasons, the writers of Marvel Comics can’t really depict what Thanos could do if his full powers were unleashed - they wouldn’t have many superheroes left if they did. However, through the use of alternate universes and possible futures, fans have been able to glimpse what an unbound Thanos is capable of, and the results are rather gruesome.

In the events of Time Runs Out, Thanos forms an evil cabal to travel the multiverse and slaughter entire worlds full of heroes.

All The Times Thanos Actually Lost Fights Were Retconned Out Of Continuity

The co-creator of Thanos, Jim Starlin, has always been protective of his character, and he found himself unhappy with a string of defeats Thanos suffers in the books of other writers. During the late ‘90s and early 2000s, Thanos was regularly being defeated by the likes of Thor, Captain Marvel, and in one embarrassing incident, Ka-Zar.

To fix this once and for all, Starlin used the Infinity Abyss series to have Thanos explain his invention of the Thanos, a mystical set of clone-like duplicates of varying strength that Thanos had sent out into the universe for experimental purposes.

Thus, not only is Thanos undefeatable (even when he is beaten), it probably isn’t the real Thanos anyway.

He can Withstand the Phoenix Force

Thanos can dish out a lot of punishment, but he can also take it. The Mad Titan’s durability is off-the-charts, and there are very few forces in the Marvel Universe that can cause any damage to his body. The Phoenix Force, a cosmic entity commonly associated with Jean Grey of the X-Men and infamous for scouring entire planets, is one of the most impossible forces to resist in all the cosmos.

Somehow, Thanos withstands its fury on a number of occasions and with little apparent difficulty, including one memorable bout with his Phoenix-empowered son, Thane.
