Did you know that Thanos only wanted to wipe out half of the universe just to impress Death? Well, in the comics, at least. If you've already seen Avengers: Infinity War, you might be surprised at how the Marvel movie villain's motivation has taken a somewhat altruistic turn. Yes, although the movie is loosely based on the classic Marvel comic The Infinity Gauntlet, his love story with the iconic villain Death was not imported into the big screens. Instead, his mission redirected into doing a 'merciful deed.' From getting on his lover's good side to trying to put a stop to overpopulation, Thanos' intentions have undergone drastic changes. The question of whether he is doing the universe a favor or not in the movie is a completely different topic.
So, who is Death anyway? In the comics, Death, also known as Mistress Death and Lady Death, is a cosmic entity. Debuting in Captain Marvel #26, her character embodies the concept of death. She is often depicted as a skeleton clad in either a black or purple robe. She has nigh-infinite power and knowledge, making her one of the most powerful Marvel villains. She is a woman of few words, speaking only when necessary. In the Captain Marvel comic book series, Thanos leaves no stone unturned to prove his love for Death by destroying all entities. He gets a hand on the Cosmic Cube, but Death leaves him when Captain Marvel, Drax the Destroyer, and the Avengers defeats him. In two Marvel Annuals, Thanos is once again seen trying to win Death but is killed in a final battle with Avengers, Captain Marvel, and Adam Warlock. There are many more versions of Thanos' love story, but that is for another discussion.
