It looks like Marvel Comics mega villain Thanos is getting more love outside his already notable appearances on screen and in the pages of the publisher’s “Avengers” franchise.
USA Today has the news that this October, Jim Starlin’s immortal supervillain will again boast his own title in the form of “Thanos: Son of Titan” -Â a mini series by writer Joe Keatinge and artist Richard Elson.
“It is about how Thanos came to be,” Keatinge, best known for his work on Image series “Hell Yeah!”, told the paper . “I don’t go Forrest Gump on it, but aspects of the Marvel Universe have been born that directly turn Thanos into who he is.”
The writer noted in the story that he’s been a fan of Thanos since he was a kid when the villain toplined Marvel events like “Infinity Gauntlet.” “At the time, I was just like, ‘Oh, I need to know everything about him that I could,'” he explained. “To me, it’s cool to finally get into that head space from when I was a kid and explore that as a writer…He ends up at the point where he’s worshiping Death and destroying universes. How do you get to that head space where you’re like, ‘This is what I want to do with the rest of my life?'”
