Awesome perspective.

Thanos was kree right? Because he looks like he's got a little skrull chin goin' on? I always wondered about that.

Nice way to use perspective to fillup the page!

Michael - Thanos is from Titan, and is one of the Titan Eternals.

Wow JB that is perfect!  Love the perspective and how it fills the page.

Thanos is an Eternal from Saturn's moon Titan.

This one has got to be mine!  =)

---------------

I don't recall any Kree connection, Thanos is from Titan (a moon of Saturn).  He's most often shown with a Skrull-rippled chin (not that I recall any Skrull connection, either).  But with Marvel nowadays, someone's bound to toss that into the story.

Well JB that ends some confusion on my part at least!  =)

Now I will have to move on to parts 5 and 6 and the rest of the cosmic characters I want.

And take six issues -- you know, a year and a half -- to do it.

IIRC, the Eternals were experiments of the Celestials as the Skrulls and Kree were. Maybe they got a couple of test tubes mixed up in the case of Thanos.

And he's Starfox's brother.

 

And I flippin' love the extreme perspective on this one.

For those who pay attention to such things -- there is a slight cheat in the perspective here. Viewed from the side, Thanos would be leaning slightly forward. This was necessary to avoid having his right boot growing out of his hip!

I like the sadistic (is that the right term?) expression you gave Thanos.

Yeah, I just trackedit down, they were eternals, not kree. Memories a little iffy after 25 years.
