Weakness must be cast aside for the sake of power.
~ Thanos

I know what it's like to lose. To feel so desperately that you're right, yet to fail nonetheless. It's frightening, turns the legs to jelly. I ask you to what end? Dread it. Run from it. Destiny arrives all the same. And now it's here. Or should I say, I am.

Perfectly balanced, as all things should be.
~ Thanos in Avengers Infinity War

Thanos,(real name Dione) is a character from Marvel Comics who is an enemy of the Avengers, the Guardians of the Galaxy, Silver Surfer, the Fantastic Four and many others.

Personality

He is regarded as the most evil, sadistic and chaotic supervillain in the entire Marvel Comics universe, exceedingly surpassing the likes of Dormammu and Mephisto. He serves as the big bad and he basically shows zero sympathy and no altruism. Thus, he is considered as a Complete Monster. His sadism and violent tendency extends from brutally killing loved heroes to destroying half of the universe which is the all-time worst villainous acts in fiction. His acts are definitely pure evil. In the Marvel Cinematic Universe version of the character, he is portrayed as no less monstrous, annhilating half of the universe’s population in an attempt to be a living God with lust of power.

History

Thanos is one of the last sons of the Titanian Eternals A'Lars and Sui-San, slaughtering his own people can becoming known among the galactic communities as the "Mad Titan." Motivated by his ambition and obsession for death, Thanos becomes cosmic warlord who rules over a distant region of space called Acheron. His ultimate goal is the possession of the Infinity Stones so he can impress the cosmic being Mistress Death by rewriting existence itself.

Death Battle Info

As a mutant variation of the Titanian Eternals, Thanos has immense strength and vitality along with nigh-limitless stamina. His physiology not only lets him survive hits from beings like the Hulk, but also regenerate from these wounds quickly and absorb/project vast quantities of cosmic energy. Thanos is also an accomplished manipulator, a skilled hand-to-hand combatant, and a genius in virtually all known fields of advanced science.

Infinity Gauntlet

A relic that gives the owner near-omnipotent powers. It is powered by the six Infinity Stones, six gems of vast power created from singularities at the end of the previous universe which separately make one god-like in their own right if used properly.

Time Stone: Gives the user control over time itself, ranging from reversing or accelerating the flow of time to stopping time in an instant or creating a timeloop that only the user can cancel. It can age enemies into dust; so long as they don't have eternal life. It can also reverse all damage Thanos or any other Infinity Stone suffers; so long as Thanos and the Time Stone aren't destroyed or incapacitated.

Space Stone: Limitless manipulation of space, allowing for teleportation, dimensional manipulation, creation of wormholes, etc.

Soul Stone: Limitless manipulation of souls both alive and dead also has shown to be able to evolve or devolve a being both physically and mentally.

Reality Stone: Locally or universally alters the natural laws of the universe to the wielder's will, draining the life force of lesser beings who possess it.

Power Stone: Controls all of the power in the universe. Grants the user infinite strength and makes them invincible to physical attacks. It can be used to augment or inhibit any force, causing lesser beings holding it to combust in a massive explosion.

Mind Stone: Taps the user into the universal consciousness, allowing for unlimited manipulation of psionic powers including telepathy and telekinesis or to subjugate the wills of others.

Heart of Universe

Thanos discovered the existence of an infinite source of energy, from which emanates all physical and metaphysical energies, what he called the heart of the universe (also known as the heart of the infinite). This cosmic artifact is able to overcome other similar artifacts like the Infinity Stones.
