VIDEO GAMES: AVENGERS ALLIANCE Reveals Thane, Son Of Thanos
Playdom's Facebook game Avengers Alliance has debuted a new character that has yet to reveal himself in the Marvel Universe, despite being a focal point of the INFINITY crossover. Check out Thane, son of Thanos after the jump..
For those not following the events of Infinity in either its own mini-series, as well as the tie-in books Avengers and New Avengers, Thanos has come to an Avengers-less earth to destroy his son. His son has been revealed to be hiding in an Inhuman community, though he wasn't given a name until a new character appeared in the listings for the Facebook game Marvel Avengers Alliance.
Thane, who can be obtained from collecting locked boxes with specific items in the game, is stated to be a mysterious ally of the Inhumans who arrived during Thanos' invasion of earth. When all of the items are collected to obtain the character, you're given a more detailed bio of Thane:
“I used to be just a man. Just another healer, nobody of consequence, plying my trade among my people. And then Thanos arrived. How did I get these horrible powers? Why? Did they come from him? All I know is that just as he came to Earth, I... changed. Suddenly I had the power of life and death in my hands. But I could not control it, and the people around me paid the price. Everyone that I had once healed, everyone I knew... dead. I ran before I could kill again, only to find an even greater murderer in my path. Thanos and his lieutenants were coming... for me. This Thanos creature... what does he want from me? If I give myself up to him, will he stop killing people? Or will he just use my powers to kill even more? I need someone to help me understand what I am... what I've become. Is that you, Agent? Do you think you can control death itself? I doubt it. But the truth is, I have no other choice. I cannot go back to the way I was, and I cannot go to Thanos. That leaves me with you. But I warn you. Try to use my powers for evil, and I'll show you what they can do... in abundance.”
The image of the character as he appears in game has also been revealed:
