At the competition, a young cartoonist named Jim Starlin was just getting his start, making waves at the quảng cáo online by pushing the boundaries of the weirdness & pathos that it would allow in the pages of its comics. After reading Kirby’s Fourth World và becoming a huge fan, Starlin was inspired to lớn create a master villain of his own. What happened next is common comic book knowledge, as Starlin decided to shape his new antagonist around a thành viên of the New Gods. But it might surprise you that his initial chosen inspiration wasn’t Darkseid. In fact, Starlin wanted lớn reinterpret — read that as rip off — Metron, the super smart explorer và turncoat who would often switch between the warring sides of the Fourth World. Marvel editor Roy Thomas had other ideas. “Beef him up! If you’re going to lớn steal one of the New Gods, at least rip off Darkseid, the really good one!” Thomas told Starlin. Và thus Thanos was born in late 1972 in the pages of Iron Man #55.

Ironically, Starlin’s knock-off would fulfill his crossover destiny before Darkseid. Thanos, the Mad Titan, pursued the Cosmic Cube in a tag-team battle spread between the Avengers series và Marvel Two-In-One, ultimately ending in Thanos’ death in 1977.

During that period of the creation và death of Thanos, Jack Kirby was on his own journey of discovery. He returned lớn Marvel in 1975, as both artist and writer. Along with notable runs on Captain America & Black Panther, he also created the Eternals, Devil Dinosaur, & Machine Man, but his time there once again didn’t last. Burning out quickly on Marvel’s company culture — where editors would often pack the letters pages in the backs of his books with negative fan hâm mộ feedback — his final work with Marvel was the company’s first graphic novel, a Silver Surfer collaboration with Stan Lee released 1978. The creator took a break from Big Two comics, dipping into animation in 1979. It would be that medium and a return to lớn Darkseid that would bring him back to DC.

As the reputation of both the Fourth World and Kirby’s career grew in the 1980s, DC Comics invited the legendary artist lớn be a part of its Kenner toyline, the Super Powers Collection. It wanted Darkseid as the big villain for the new action figures, & this bled over into the Super Friends cartoon series and a new comic book under the Super Powers brand. The comics relied on the artistic genius of the King himself, as the storyteller was heavily involved in their creation. This kinh doanh push led lớn a commercialization of the ruler of Apokolips; kids could even take home a Darkseid mug from Burger King in 1988. It was a mere taste of the broad commercial success that Thanos would have decades years later, however.

But Starlin was drawn to lớn the cosmic once again, putting his own spin on Darkseid and the Fourth World in the miniseries Cosmic Odyssey. This experiment would prove fortuitous, as less than a year later Starlin would return to Marvel, revive Thanos, & soon center him in his own cosmic odyssey in the infamous và wildly popular miniseries known as The Infinity Gauntlet. Although there were no fast food toys to lớn be had, Thanos & his quest for power nguồn laid the foundation for Marvel’s unending glut of crossover comics in the 1990s. And, of course, decades later, the popular comic would change the face of cinema forever.

Marvel Studios makes an inevitable decision

Founded in 1996, Marvel Studios was a last ditch attempt lớn save the failing advertiser from bankruptcy. Licensing & packaging movies like Blade, X-Men, and many more to lớn external studios gave Marvel a foothold in the film industry. Then in 2003, a producer named David Maisel pitched Marvel Studios on making its own movies. That was the spark that lit the fire of the MCU, but those previous licensing đơn hàng meant the company didn’t have access to its most famous heroes, including Daredevil, Spider-Man, and the Fantastic Four. & that forced the studio khổng lồ reimagine who could be an A-list nhân vật in its burgeoning cinematic universe.

In 2022, it’s clear Marvel Studios did that lớn an unbelievable degree of success, recasting lower cấp độ comic book heroes lượt thích Tony Stark, the Avengers, and Captain America as the biggest superheroes on Earth. Yet the licensing deals also left the company with a dearth of villains. Galactus, Doctor Doom, Magneto, & the Spider-Man rogues were all elsewhere. But while that may have shaped the choice, ultimately choosing Thanos as the MCU’s big bad makes a lot of sense on its own. If you’re going to lớn make a series of comic book sự kiện movies, why wouldn’t you use Marvel’s most successful comic book event as a template?

Thanos’ smiling face would popularize the now expected mid-credits và post-credits scenes of MCU films. Originally portrayed by Damien Poiter, the Mad Titan was later recast by Feige and co. Khổng lồ be played by Josh Brolin. From there, he became a cosmic puppet master controlling the Avengers’ fates and foes until the inevitable snap came in 2018’s Avengers: Infinity War. All the while, Darkseid was nowhere khổng lồ be seen on the silver screen. While his existence was implied in 2016’s Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice, during a sepia dream sequence where eagle-eyed comic book fans could spot the Omega symbol that signifies his home planet of Apokolips, he wouldn’t join the live-action DC fray until 2021 in Zack Snyder’s Justice League. There, viewers met him as the younger iteration of the intergalactic god known only as Uxis. And even then it likely seemed to lớn many who weren’t familiar with the history that this strange omnipotent alien was nothing more than a Thanos knock-off. Oh, the irony.
