How could you not know this name? This is the big bad that the MCU has been building towards since the beginning. Every Marvel movie has been influenced in some way by this intergalactic titan, and he's poised to be the ultimate villain in the 2-part end to the Avengers trilogy. But aside from him being evil, what else do we really know about Thanos? Here's 8 facts that just may surprise you.
1.He has been defeated by A Woman named Squirrel Girl
I know! Crazy right? But he seriously was defeated by Squirrel Girl. Her bio is in a different post. She only defeated him because she has razor sharp claws, a prehensile tail, an enhanced sense of smell and slightly superhuman physical strength and agility. Oh, and her trusty squirrel sidekicks Tippy-Toe and Monkey Joe. Strange names but that's squirrel girl for you. There are secrets about squirrel girl we probably don't know. But she can definitely kick Thanos’ ass.
2.He celebrates Christmas
Which is weird. You would think that a mad titan wouldn't celebrate holidays. But since he kidnapped Gamora from her parents, I guess he wanted to let her have a childhood, while he taught her to be a killer assassin.
3.He owned a helicopter
I guess instead of flying like he can, he just wanted to cruise in the sky instead of zooming through the sky. , just like his floating chair in Guardians of The Galaxy. I love how subtle he is about the name of his flight too.
4.Thanos seduced Galactus and became Galactus.
It started out simply: Thanos was setting the mood, lulling Galactus into a false sense of security, and then, without Galactus taking one breath, Thanos got a little too hands-on for comfort.
5.He has a desire to lose against someone.
That's why he travels through the galaxy and fights creatures. He heard about the Avengers and decided they were worthy enough to fight him. So he went and dumped on their chests, but then Squirrel Girl came scurrying up and dumped on his chest.
6.He destroyed his home world
Which I don't blame him for since his mother tried to kill him. But he also decided to blow it up because he wanted to be the last living titan. Thanos relishes in it.
7.He was arrested by regular cops, like city cops.
I'm a little disappointed in him, I thought he could do better than getting by city cops. Forget the Avengers, just get the guys from Super Troopers to handle him in the Infinity War movies.
8. He's a kidnapper
He kidnapped two little girl from their families named Gamora and Nebula. He took a idea from Odin (or the other way around) by kidnapping a child. Gamora has a score to settle with her "dad," but I guess we'll have to wait until next year's Guardians of the Galaxy Vol.2 to see if Nebula feels the same way.
