The almighty Thanos, on of the most powerful villains in the history of comics is set to be coming down to Earth in search of the Infinity Gems. Thanos will be front and center as the villain in the two Infinity Wars films and while we don't exactly know what all to expect, we can expect events of epic proportions. the MCU has had its fair share of great villains, Loki, Ultron, and Red Skull just to name a few, but could Thanos be the best of them all?
Who is Thanos?
Thanos was born on one of Staurn's moons called Titan. As a child his mother tried to kill him which led to many psychological problems. As he grew older he became mesmerized with the idea of death which led to him worshiping the embodiment of Death itself named The Mistress Death. In an attempt to impress this Mistress Death he forms of a group of aliens and sends a Nuclear Bomb to his planet that murders most of his race. In an effort to gain unmatched power and control, his search for the Infinity Gems began.
How will he Affect the MCU?
Thanos definitely will change the MCU for a long time to come. Thanos with the Infinity Gauntlet is easily the most powerful being that anyone in the MCU has ever seen. Expect death, much death, anytime Thanos is involved the possibility of death is always imminent. We may witness the demise of many of our favorite Avengers. Could we see the end of Chris Evans as Cap? Tony Stark as Iron Man? It is very possible. Thanos could be the dawn of a new age for the MCU and change it drastically for years to come.
Who will be the one to defeat Thanos?
The question remains, Who will be the Avenger who will defeat Thanos? It will definitely be a team effort, but in the end there will just be one. If I had to pick an Avenger that I would like to see defeat Thanos I would be torn between Captain America and Spider-Man. Captain America is the leader of The Avengers, he is the one who no matter what will put his life on the line if it means the people around him are safe. In the comics however, Thanos defeats Captain America after a valiant effort which may confirm Tony Stark's dream in Age of Ultron. Spider-Man is going to definitely be a big part of Infinity War. Could the young web-slinger be the one who defeats the almighty Thanos? Hopefully, it would be awesome to see our friendly neighborhood Spider-Man save the world
Will he be the best MCU Villain ever?
Thanos could easily become one of the greatest villain that the MCU and even Film for that matter. Josh Brolin will portray Thanos and so far from what we have seen, he has done a very good job. Thanos will undoubtedly be the most powerful villain in the MCU and the events that occur could be so epic that it puts Thanos above and beyond the other villains we have previously witnessed. It is going to be pretty tough to top the likes of Ultron and Loki, but with the destructiveness that the Infinity Wars will bring, I think it is definitely possible.
