Thanos is a genetically engineered human (and a member of a race known as the Eternals, which are plucked from prehistoric Earth by godlike beings and given superhuman abilities). He lives on Titan, one of Saturn’s moons, and he’s best known as the Mad Titan.

The Thanos wallpaper provides a look at one of the most iconic villains in the Marvel Comics universe. Known as the Mad Titan, Thanos is a powerful villain with a Malthusian mindset and galactic-spanning genocidal agenda. He first appeared in the Iron Man comic book, penned by Mike Friedrich and Jim Starlin, in 1973 and is currently portrayed by Josh Brolin in the Marvel Cinematic Universe.
He is a member of the Eternals, a race of genetically modified humans that were created by godlike beings known as Celestials 5 million years ago. After quarreling with the Deviants, who share their ancestry, the Eternals fled Earth and established a colony on Titan, Saturn’s largest moon.
Thanos’s body is incredibly strong, and he has near-immortality. He can survive indefinitely without food or water, and his skin is nearly invulnerable to a wide range of damage — heat, cold, electricity, radiation, toxins, etc. He can project a psionic blast of energy and teleport fantastic distances.
His superhuman intellect is totally dedicated to eradicating life as we know it. He also believes that it is his destiny to collect all six Infinity Stones, cosmic gems with the power to stabilize the universe’s overpopulation and prevent what he sees as its inevitable demise.
While Thanos is a ruthless killer, his true love is Death, who he adores. He often uses his abilities to impress her and enacts his genocidal schemes in her honor.
He has many followers and possesses a vast amount of wealth. But he doesn’t have any genuine friendships or close confidants. Rather, Thanos often interacts with his followers by imposing his will on them and guiding them to fulfill his own goals. He mainly communicates with his followers through a high-ranking servant named the Other, who can issue threats on his behalf and speak for him in public.
Avengers: Infinity War
Thanos is one of the greatest villains in Marvel comic history, and he has become an iconic symbol of the Marvel Cinematic Universe. He is the king of the Black Order and is attempting to gather all six of the Infinity Stones. He plans to use these items to destroy half the universe, which is a terrifying and daunting task that the Avengers are not prepared to accept.
Thanos has appeared in numerous Marvel comics and TV shows, but it is only recently that he has become a movie character. He first appeared in 2012’s Avengers, and his appearance has been a major part of many Marvel movies since then.
In the Avengers: Infinity War, Thanos is portrayed by Josh Brolin in a purple CGI suit. He is a colossus who has come from another dimension to destroy Earth and its inhabitants. He has a very unique personality that is both wrathful and compassionate.
He has a deep love for his home planet Titan, which is the reason that he is willing to sacrifice half of its population to save it from destruction. He also believes that he will be able to save the universe from its current ills by snapping his fingers.
During his time on Titan, Thanos encounters Doctor Strange. The two have a conversation about his past and future. In the process, he realizes that if Thanos manages to get his hands on the six Infinity Stones, he will wipe out half of the universe. He is able to view millions of possible futures and sees only one where the Avengers win.
As a result, Thanos is a powerful character that has a lot of depth and motivations. Despite this, it is difficult to keep him at the center of the film. In addition, there are so many other characters that have been introduced in the Marvel cinematic universe over the years, and it is difficult to fit them all in without making the film feel like an expository avalanche careening down a mountain.
After the devastating events of Avengers: Infinity War, the Avengers are left reeling. The devastation caused by Thanos snapping his fingers wiped out half the universe, leaving a group of heroes to rebuild and put their differences aside for one final mission to save the world.
The Russo brothers’ emotionally intense final chapter of the MCU, “Avengers: Endgame” focuses on post-trauma recovery and reunion for a series of powerful scenes that explore loss and love, duty and honor, and friendship and family. Despite their grief, each of the heroes finds hope for a future.
In 2018, twenty-three days after Thanos destroyed half of the universe with his use of the Infinity Stones, Tony Stark and Nebula are rescued by Carol Danvers and reunited with Bruce Banner, Steve Rogers, Thor, Natasha Romanoff, and James Rhodes on Earth. They are joined by Rocket and Ant-Man, who believe that there may be a way to reverse Thanos’s destructive actions.
Thanos reduces the Avengers headquarters to rubble, splitting the team into two. The past Nebula, impersonating her future self, tries to steal the Infinity Stones, but Barton defends them. Thanos then overpowers Rogers, Thor, and a Mjolnir-wielding Stark to steal the Stones and use them to destroy the entire universe.
Meanwhile, Rocket and Ant-Man have joined the remaining Avengers for one last life-or-death mission to reversal Thanos’s destruction and save the universe. They place the Infinity Stones into a gauntlet that Stark, Banner, and Rocket have created. The gauntlet has the highest resistance to radiation, and Banner uses it to reversal Thanos’s disintegrations.
When Thanos arrives on Earth, the surviving Avengers attempt to fight him with their reforged powers. But the battle is too much for them to handle. The resulting chaos brings together the remnants of Thanos’s army and forces the Avengers to team up for one last heroic act.
Avengers: Age of Ultron
In Age of Ultron, the heroes of the Marvel Cinematic Universe must face a new foe: an artificial intelligence called Ultron created by genius inventor Tony Stark. This new version of the robot is more interested in destroying the world than saving it, and it’s up to Iron Man, Thor, Captain America, Hulk, Hawkeye and Black Widow to stop him before Ultron can destroy the entire planet.
The movie also set up a lot of the threads that would eventually be woven into the rest of the MCU. For instance, it introduced Vision and Scarlet Witch, two characters who would grow in prominence as the film went on. It also introduced the Maximoff twins, who would become important in Captain America: Civil War and Avengers: Infinity War.
Another thread that Age of Ultron set up was Darren Cross’s attempt to steal Hank Pym’s Ant-Man suit, which he succeeds in doing despite Hank’s protests. Hank later finds out that Darren has stolen his suit and is trying to develop his own.
While this is going on, the Avengers travel to Africa and try to stop Ultron from obtaining vibranium. They also face mind attacks from the Scarlet Witch, who raises up in each of them their deepest fears and darkest memories.
After all of this, Ultron has enough vibranium to create a machine that will lift Sokovia into the sky, intending to crash it down to cause global extinction. In the end, the Avengers manage to destroy most of Ultron’s drones, but his primary body is damaged by the Hulk, who takes him down in a Quinjet.
While the story itself was not a good one, Age of Ultron was still a huge step forward for the MCU. It was a very self-contained film, but it also helped set up the majority of what’s to come over the next four years.
Originally created by David Michelinie and John Byrne, Ant-Man first appeared in Avengers #181 (March 1979) and assumed the Ant-Man identity in Marvel Premiere #47 (April 1979). Scott Lang was a reformed criminal who enrolled in Stark Industries to study electronics. However, Lang was soon arrested after a botched robbery and sent to prison. He later started Ant-Man Security Systems to support his family while also pursuing his dream of becoming a hero.
He met his future wife Cassie in the same issue, who had a congenital heart condition and was kidnapped by industrialist Darren Cross. After attempting one last burglary, Hank Pym recruited Scott to become Ant-Man and fight Darren to save Cassie.
The movie focuses on Scott’s journey to becoming a hero while Hank Pym deals with his own mental health issues. Hank has been a prominent figure in the Marvel universe, but he’s often relegated to background roles, which is why it’s not surprising that Marvel doesn’t want to fully incorporate him into their current movies.
As a result, Marvel’s approach to their Ant-Man story is very different than what it was with Iron Man or Captain America. It’s not that they’re trying to dumb down their heroes, it’s just that they know that the Ant-Man series has always been a little bit out in the weeds.
Quantumania tries to re-introduce some of the best aspects of the character’s history, while making sure that it still manages to have its fun with them as well. It’s a great way to kick off the next phase of the MCU’s tiniest heroes.
It’s an exciting move for Marvel, one that should help propel Scott Lang to a new level of heroism. Hopefully, Marvel will follow up on their promising Ant-Man debut with an even better movie in the future!
