"Thanos is coming. He's coming."
Bruce Banner[src]

Thanos is a genocidal warlord from Titan, whose main objective was to bring stability to the universe by wiping out half of all life at every level. Thanos and his Black Order set about on a ferocious crusade to obtain the Stones. However, in 2018, when Thanos arrived on Earth, he became infected by the Quantum Virus and was transformed into a zombie.

He then made his way to the Golden City and waited there for the last Infinity Stone.[1]
