    Um….. I know I’m showing my age here but haven’t we already done this Thanos/Cosmic Cube thing way back during the Jim Starlin era?

    infinity gauntlet or cosmic cube? ummm, that’s like trading a machine gun for a crossbow. the cube’s powerful but it’s a huge downgrade from the gauntlet.

    How’d he get out of the cancerverse? Oh what Bendis is writing so Luke Cage probably punched him out.

      Since Mar-Vell made an appearance in the AvX storyline they had to let Thanos out to give equal time.

    If we can just get past all this Thanos and Darkseid crap… since the ’70s!!!
    I thought I was bored with Kang and Dr. Doom before these two came into the picture… WAY too often.
    How many times do we have to go thru this crap?!?
    None of “King Kirby’s” titles sold for shit back in the ’70s…
    Yet, here is ol’ granite face remains the main bad guy in every other comic.
    (Not to mention the cartoons and cartoon movies.)
    What a waste of time and talent.

      Yes it is debatable that Kirby’s books for DC were poor sellers there is some controversy and the accounting process (pre direct market) was more of an art than a science. But it is a testament to Kirby’s genius that many of today’s creators use Kirby’s creations and derivatives like Thanos (which Starlin admits is his version of Darkseid). One could also say that it is a testament to modern creator’s lack of imagination to use the same characters so often.

You know you have something to say, say it in the comment section
