Information on the rapper
Thanos is a fictional supervillain appearing in American comic books published by Marvel Comics. The character, created by writer/artist Jim Starlin, first appeared in The Invincible Iron Man #55.
Born on the planet Titan, he was almost killed by his own mother who foresaw his destiny. Later on in life, he held his most famous weapon, the Infinity Gauntlet, for when the Soul Gems get together (Power, Mind, Space, Soul, Time, and Reality), he has total power of the universe. His most infamous move with it was to kill half the population of the universe to impress Mistress Death (a female personification of Death in the Marvel Universe), although the films changed his reasoning to make the universe more balanced out and to prevent overpopulation.
He appears in the Marvel Cinematic Universe, portrayed by Josh Brolin in Guardians of the Galaxy, Avengers: Age of Ultron, Avengers: Infinity War, and Avengers: Endgame. He was however potrayed by Damion Poitier in The Avengers.
- Thanos was confirmed by Nice Peter on the Official ERB Wiki Discord on February 12th, 2019. Peter stated "We got Thanos covered […] The matchup we have for Thanos makes me smile every time we talk about it."
- He may be the fifth Marvel Comics character to rap, after Thor, Deadpool, Bruce Banner, and Wolverine.
- Thanos' name was written on the board in the background during the beginning of "The Patreon Song".
