    I've been wondering about this, exactly what can he do that makes him so powerful (able to fight with the surfer of the Norse God's)

    BTW I'm talking minus the infinity gems.

    Don't know--

    --but his name is Greek, meaning "death". Just from that I'd figure he's one bad dude to have against you.

    Thanos: Dud.

    I don't know about his existance outside of where I know him from, but Thanos is to me as Frieza is to Goku. Old news. I first met Thanos YEARS ago when I first played "Marvel Super Heros" the arcade fighter. Oh he was hard then, but like Goku and his fights, the levels increased as time went on, leaving past battles in the dust cuz of all the games that spun off after it! X-Men vs. Streetfighter, Marvel vs. Capcom (fav).

    LOL. Seriously though, I always thought without those gems he was kind of like Superman's Darkseid. I mean, you sometimes see Marvel characters mirror DC characters or vice versa.

    Intense Corpse Action. Thanos is dead.

    At least, I heard he was. I know he greeted the Marvel Captain Marvel (aka Mar-Vell. There are way too many Captains Marvel runnin' loose.) when he was killed off. I don't know what his powers were, except whatever the writer wanted him to have. His deal was that he was trying to marry a personified female Death, and to do this he had to destroy half the universe, or something. I dunno. Space comics are relentlessly dull.

    And he was a lot tougher in that game than the more recent bosses. I beat him ONCE, with Juggernaut. I routinely beat Apocalypse, Abyss, and Cyber-Akuma by switching fighters. (Onslaught was one cheap-ass bastard, though.) You can play Thanos in the MvC2 game, and he's okay, but I prefer the Cable-Juggie-Colossus combination.

    Perhaps the reason he was greeting him, was because he was with death in her realm, but not dead himself.

    So what are his powers?

    :rolleyes:

    I can see some people need a lesson on how to search the internet! :p

    I went to google, and did a search for "Thanos". I got all sorts of hits. In fact, the very first site that came up had a FAQ section that answers your exact question. Here's the address of the site.

    Actually, Thanos has a wider range of powers than Darkseid, though none are quite as powerful as the Omega Beam. Besides, all cosmic heroes are pretty powerful anyway. Watcher, Stranger, Galactus...

    Nobody really answered the question:
    - Superhuman Strength
    - Superhuman Phsyiology
    - Plasma Energy Projection

    He also has the superpower of being able to be used in a Darkseid-like manner, without Marvel being sued by DC. Which is more amazing than anything else he can do.

    I actually wasn't aware he had that. Although, to be fair, I was comparing him to The Beyonder and I thought The Beyonder was more intelligent.
