"Thanos is always pleased to honor you with the pain you deserve."

Thanos was born on Saturn's moon Titan, a world believed uninhabited but actually the home to an advanced offshoot of humanity. Thanos was dissatisfied by the peaceful world, and left to begin his mission of conquest. In his travels, he met the entity known as Death and became enamored with her. He soon devoted all of his energies to pleasing her, and eventually became her servant. Desiring to be her equal, he sought the Infinity Gems, six stones of great power that would give him control over the universe. When he finally obtained the six gems and placed them on his Infinity Gauntlet, he gained unlimited power. To impress Death, he extinguished half the lives in the universe, and it took the combined might of many superheroes to finally stop him. He was divested of the Gauntlet, and placed on an uninhabited planet where he could cause no harm. He had since escaped, and it is only a matter of time before he menaces the universe in Death's name once again.

- Thanos first appeared in Iron Man #55, February 1972
