YOU FOOLS PAY OVER $2.50 for a comic book (forksclovetofu), Monday, 2 September 2013 03:59 (five years ago) link

I voted for Thanos. I've only read a few newer stories with both, but the fact that Geoff Johnns wrote the latest Darkseid-saga sealed the deal for me.

Darkseid is an imposing presence in all his comics, but he really doesn't do as much as say Kronos, who is way more of a 'go-getter' in the actual plot of the comics. Darkseid is often always just sending out his lackeys to do the work then berating them because they are totally incompetent, that's way more of a middle management style for me.

xp i dunno that seems like saying the punisher is a better character than spider man because of dan slott

I like Slott's She-Hulk series and his Avengers: The Initiative work, but yeah, I don't get the love for his Spidey run.

i do appreciate the fact that he made the cola competitor logo to mirror the marvel logo from the 90's

Well, my situation would be like only having read the slott spiderman and the rucka punisher, and yeah, i would vote for punisher. even though i know about leeditko and all that.

I'm reading through the Avengers vs. Thanos 70s trade right now. It is interesting to read this story compiled this way, as I don't think I had ever read the Steve Gerber (w/Starlin) Daredevil issues that introduced Moon Dragon. This stuff had been compiled a couple of different ways over the years. I read it in the 80s with the Starlin Captain Marvel and Warlock baxter reprints and had the Marvel Two-In-One and the Avengers annual issue. This new trade puts the whole thing into a reading order. Really there is only 2 Avengers comic's in the collection Avengers 125 and Annual 7. The Avengers is guest stars in the Captain Marvel comics and show up in the Marvel Two-In-One issues.

Infinity is getting a bit snoozy.

what's up ugly girls? (Shakey Mo Collier), Monday, 23 September 2013 17:20 (five years ago) link

My God, I never realized that Thanos is nicked from Thanatos, which stories tell of Starlin getting way into his psychological concepts in the 70s, like Starfox is apparently Eros or some such.

two years pass...

I am disappointed by how short and one-sided this thread is!

Thanos needs to get hauled off by the NYPD and have his copter confiscated at the end of Infinity War.

i don't think anyone can deny that having your name emblazoned on your personal helicopter is baller as fuck but damn thanos looks super-uncomfortable crammed into that cockpit

Mahogany Loggins (bizarro gazzara), Thursday, 26 April 2018 14:50 (one year ago) link

Do you find something comical about his appearance when he is piloting his helicopter? Every super-villain needs to fly an aircraft, even the very large. That was the largest copter he could afford.

I'd like (not) to see the gritty variation where Thanos grabs some airport mechanic by the throat and forces him to paint the name on the helicopter he decides to steal, then throws him to Hoboken.
