In addition to the origin of Thanos we will see in Avengers Infinity War, an upcoming novel from publisher Little, Brown and Company and author Barry Lyga will further explore the Mad Titan’s backstory. While this will not tie in officially with the movies, it should still be an interesting story for fans of the MCU. It definitely seems like Thanos’ origin story will be tweaked a bit when compared to his comic counterpart. This novel could give us some more insight into those changes. It seems like it will be worth a look. Here is a summary from the publisher.
Space. Reality. Mind. Power. Time. Soul.
Before creation itself, there were six singularities. Then the universe exploded into existence, and the remnants of these systems were forged into concentrated ingots…
Only beings of immense power can hope to wield these stones, but for those who are worthy, the powers of a god await.
Thanos is one such being. But he wasn’t always.
Born on a doomed world and cast out by his people for his genius, physical deviancy, and pragmatic but monstrous ideas, Thanos is determined to save the galaxy from the same fate as his homeworld… no matter how many billions have to die.
Learn the origins of the most formidable foe the Avengers, the Guardians of the Galaxy, Doctor Strange, and Black Panther have ever faced—a foe whom even a group of remarkable people, pulled together to fight the battles nobody else could, will fail to stop….
Dread it. Run from it. Destiny still arrives.
Thanos is here.
