About the Crazy Titan
Thanos, called the Mad Titan, was created in 1973 by Mike Friedrich and Jim Starlin, having his first appearance in issue number 55 of Iron Man. Passionate about the personification of Death, he created the Infinity Gauntlet, which guarantees him a very high level of power, just to impress his beloved.
He would have been born on Titan, Saturn’s moon, from which he decimated the population, including his family, always with the intention of pleasing Death. The Mad Titan poses a threat to Earth when he arrives on our planet in search of the Jewels of Infinity, responsible for the power of his gauntlet.
Thanos will be the main villain of Avengers: Infinity War, which hits theaters next May.
