ThaMessenger07 - 6/12/2012, 1:58 PM
That's quite Awesome....




beane2099 - 6/12/2012, 1:58 PM
Uhm so are these just reprints of The Infinity Gauntlet with snazzy new covers? Cause that sounds like the same story. Am I wrong here? Did I miss something in the fine print?
Hudson3D - 6/12/2012, 2:01 PM
@IM53. .Ha haaaaaaa... love it! Thanks brother!!
You are da man!!!
Hudson3D - 6/12/2012, 2:01 PM

LAXtremest - 6/12/2012, 2:10 PM
Where's the concept art?
Hudson3D - 6/12/2012, 2:11 PM
@Durf.. Very well thank you. I'm just deciding if I should go and watch a film on the TV or post some porn on here.

Not seen Teabag in a couple of days.
Supes17 - 6/12/2012, 2:12 PM
I thought LOKI is the most talked about Villain...
Hudson3D - 6/12/2012, 2:19 PM
@Durf.. Oh I didn't know he was getting married but I haven't really been here talking to you all for very long.

I'm gonna go and watch a film and chill out.

IM53.... Durf..... See you later bro's...

THANOS IS IN THE AVENGERS?????!!! f*k u a-holes for spoili, sorry. Looks sick. Marvel rules. Redemption for FF, Daredevil, 1st Ghostrider, all Xmen except 1st class. ALL Punishers, Elektra???? Wolverine?? that sh*t was gay. Read Havok and Wolverine,"Meltdown". Thats Wolvie, a goddam mutant. Not some tall, good looking dude with hair that he has done every morning. Maybe there was a Mutant with hairstyling powers. U suck
dahamma - 6/12/2012, 2:20 PM
Dude that is so sick!!! I hope his finally look looks close to this!
JMESS - 6/12/2012, 2:26 PM
bring it !
MrsTonyStark0507 - 6/12/2012, 2:36 PM
There was no infatuation between the two. He was obsessed with her, but Death never loved him. She aided in his downfall. And Thanos is a sadistic moron. Yeah, I said it. I have to agree with another poster when they said:

"Uhm so are these just reprints of The Infinity Gauntlet with snazzy new covers? Cause that sounds like the same story. Am I wrong here? Did I miss something in the fine print?"

Been there, done that. WHY ARE WE RECYCLING AN OLD STORY?!?!? When I got to the end of the last Avengers Assemble, my only reaction was "WHAT????" How can he even be back? It makes no sense.
DrStrangeFan - 6/12/2012, 2:37 PM
Thanos will own everything
MrsTonyStark0507 - 6/12/2012, 2:38 PM
And by sadistic moron, I mean he is like Jafar in Aladdin. He got the power only to have it taken away by his own stupidity. That does NOT equal BADASS IMO!!
SageMode - 6/12/2012, 3:09 PM
Now THAT is what you call Comic Book EPICNESS right there. Badass incarnate is what THANOS is, the villain that conquered the Universe twice. MAKE it MARVEL.
vtopa - 6/12/2012, 3:17 PM
I think that Thanos is NOT going to be the bad guy in the next Avengers movie. I think that he will be the bad guy in a FUTURE film that brings together a variety of Marvel TEAMS. So, there will be a few Guardians of the Galaxy Flicks, another Avenger's flick and then a monstrous cross-over where the Guardians (and Nova and Quasar) plus the Avengers plus the Inhumans take on Thanos in a two part epic that will dwarf ALL PREVIOUS FILMS.
CPBuff22 - 6/12/2012, 3:18 PM
The saga that is the Thaos & Adam Warlock story is pure epic.
mob7medina - 6/12/2012, 3:19 PM
So Much frickin win!Marvel is the shiiznit!and @MARVELPSYCHO79 yur right Captain Marvel was A Great Character why haven't they brought him back?
ALmighty1080 - 6/12/2012, 3:39 PM
looks like Darkseid
thewonderer - 6/12/2012, 3:47 PM
I'm surprised no one here has speculated how in the hell they're going to defeat Thanos in the movies without making it seem like a cop out.

How exactly is he defeated in the comics?
MrsTonyStark0507 - 6/12/2012, 3:59 PM
Intruder - I was speaking strictly Infinity Gauntlet.

TheWonderer - It's pretty complicated. http://en.m.wikipedia.org/wiki/The_Infinity_Gauntlet

Right back atcha bro

Apocalypse is very powerful, but he couldn't hold a torch against Thanos. That fight would last about 5mins (and 4:50 mins of that would be Thanos toy around with Apocalypse).
DanteSparda - 6/12/2012, 4:09 PM
I came thrice...

Hope we see Thanos this way in Avengers 2.
MrsTonyStark0507 - 6/12/2012, 4:10 PM
Vtopa - That is what I was thinking too. They have to go that route or it's just stupid and going to be very difficult to pull off.
morenfaster - 6/12/2012, 4:19 PM
