After Gamora's arrest on Xandar, Thanos summoned Ronan the Accuser and Nebula to Sanctuary. Thanos sat in his throne facing away from Ronan as the Kree started throwing all the blame at Gamora's feet. After The Other was murdered by Ronan when he lectured him for not showing the proper respect to his master, the Kree insisted Thanos take this matter seriously. Turning his throne to face Ronan, the Mad Titan declared he couldn't care less for Ronan or his politics, comparing his demeanor to that of a whiny child and for alienating his favorite daughter. Thanos ordered Ronan to return to his task and bring him the Orb of Morag so he might fulfill his end of their deal to destroy Xandar, and threatened to bathe the starways in his blood if he failed. Thanos then sat back onto his throne.
- In the comics, the Space Throne allows Thanos to travel faster than light and to teleport between different dimensions.
