Thanos arm

Thanos, also known as the Madman Titan, belongs to the Black Order, Chitauri and is a Titan. He has several foster children:

  • Nebula

He has appeared in several Marvel films:

A famous Thanos saying is, “I am inevitable.”

If you want to portray Thanos in cosplay, you should also know a little bit about his powers, abilities and equipment, because cosplay is not only about wearing elaborate costumes, but also about realistically re-enacting the characters.

Powers

Thanos power

Since Thanos is a Titan, he enjoys the typical Titan physiology. This means that it is naturally very large, but also unusually strong:

  • Strength

Especially impressive is the superhuman strength of Thanos in the exciting duel of Thanos with Hulk. Although he already has the power stone at the time the fight takes place (more on this later), he doesn’t have to use it at all, his normal power is completely sufficient to win the fight.

A further proof of his incredible strength is the fact that he smashes the Tesseract with his bare hand.

  • Resilience

Besides its superhuman strength, Thanos is also incredibly resilient. For example, he is not destroyed by the Gauntlet’s superiority as soon as he uses the last Infinity stone. He also survives the attack of Thor with his axe Stormbreaker without damage, although Thor pushes it deep into his chest.

  • Reflexes & Agility

The agile reflexes of Thanos are also astonishing, because with his size and body volume one should assume that he is less fast and agile. But here, too, in a fight with the Hulk, you can see that Thanos can agilely dodge all Hulk blows, blocking and parrying them.

Even attacks from agile opponents like Spider-Man, Black Panther or Captain America never make Thanos appear too slow.

  • Regeneration

And finally, Thanos’ physiology has a strong healing factor, so that he can survive even the most severe injuries and can regenerate quickly from smaller cuts, etc.

Skills

In addition to physical strengths, Thanos also has other valuable skills that make him a serious opponent:

  • Intellectual genius

If you thought Thanos was just a dumb muscleman, you were wrong. Because Thanos was able to refine his intellectual abilities in the course of his long life and uses them skillfully for cunning, tactics and deception. He is also very adept at detecting deception and lies in others and predicting future events.

  • Good tactician

With centuries of experience in tactical warfare, Thanos is an incredibly good strategist. He is resourceful, innovative and imaginative when it comes to complex and perfectly coordinated plans and implements them in a very effective way.

  • Good melee fighter

Especially in duels, Thanos proves to be very competent and has passed this ability on to his foster children, who became extremely impressive fighters under his care.

  • Good swordsman

In this context Thanos excels in the use of his double-bladed sword in combat.

Equipment

Thanos

Thanos can’t get by with his strength and abilities alone, which is why he has the appropriate equipment:

  • Double Blade Sword
  • Infinity Gauntlet (English for: Gauntlet of Infinity)

Virtually everything revolves around this very powerful glove. The six Infinity Stones are inserted into this glove, whereupon the glove gives its wearer unlimited power. Thanos forced the dwarves on Nidavellir to make this wonderful glove for him. In the movie Infinity War, Thanos was able to insert all six Infinity Stones into the glove and then promptly wiped out half of all living beings in the universe with a single snap of his finger.
