Thanos He is one of Marvel’s greatest villains. Not only because of what has been seen in the Infinity Saga of the Cinematic Universe (MCU), but because of everything that the Crazy Titan has starred in in the comics of the house of ideas.
As he recalls a report published on the website of super fiction, Thanos has faced many superheroes and only a few have been able to defeat him. In the MCU, Thor lopped off his head and Tony Stark/Iron Man removed it with a snap wearing the Infinity Gauntlet with the gems.
However, something that not all Marvelites know is that the Titan is much more fearsome in the comicsnot only because of his power, but because of his wisdom and his ability to plan attacks.
Although he is a villain who usually passes over whoever gets in his way, Thanos also knows how to recognize when a rival is worthy to face him.
Thanos reveals his six most worthy enemies
In Captain Marvel #31, Thanos gained access to the Cosmic Cube, a raw source of power from the Marvel universe that the Mad Titan intended to use as a weapon.
One of the first things he did upon obtaining it was finish off the six characters that you know could spoil your plansleaving them in a state of stasis.
With one of his usual monologues, Thanos explained that the six characters who could face him with dignity are Captain Marvel, Iron Man, Drax, Lunar Dragon, Starfox and Mentor.
As we can see in the image, Thanos knows perfectly well that both his father Mentor and his brother Starfox are capable of stopping him, especially if they join forces. For his part, Iron Man is one of his greatest adversaries, while Captain Marvel has the power to overcome him.
