Infinity War: Character of Thanos
The introduction of Thanos was a push for the Marvel Cinematic Universe to produce more movies.

In the comics of modern age, the mention of Thanos surely implies that there is something that’s being brought up by Marvel. Starlin’s definition of Thanos is very similar to that of Jack Kirby’s tyrannical New God. However, the character is quite different and has become more advanced than that of New God and received more appreciation.
