Thanos' Origin Revealed in "Brutal" New Eternals Story

Warning! Spoilers for Eternals: Thanos Rises #1 by Marvel Comics

A new Marvel Comics story will tell the "brutal" tale surrounding Thanos' birth and a civil war that erupted between the Eternals during the chaotic time. On Tuesday, Marvel revealed a new one-shot, titled Eternals: Thanos Rises, which is set to shine a light on the tumultuous events that took place when the Mad Titan was born and focus on a nasty war among the ancient cosmic race.

Thanos has grown to become Marvel's ultimate villain, as the Infinity Gauntlet saga and his appearances in the Marvel Cinematic Universe have made the character a household name. But, before he quested for the Infinity Stones, Thanos was born to an Eternal family who lived on Titan. However, unlike his brother Starfox, he looked like a monster as he carried the Deviant gene, who are the Eternals' greatest enemy. Thanos' mother was horrified by his appearance and tried to kill him. The Mad Titan has since made it one of his goals to destroy the race that outcasted him.

Thanos has remerged as a serious threat in Marvel's Eternals series from Kieron Gillen, Esad Ribic, and Matthew Wilson. He's managed to convince Druig to help him destroy the Eternals from within, and also has an unnamed traitor among the group's ranks on his side. With Thanos trying to dismantle the Eternals in the current timeline, a new one-shot will further explore his birth, history, and connections with the cosmic heroes. Eternals: Thanos Rises #1 (H/T CBR.com) by Gillen and Dustin Weaver will showcase the untold story of Thanos' birth. Check out the cover for the one-shot by Ribic below, where Thanos stands among a pile of skulls as his mother Sui-San and father Mentor are seen in the stars.

According to Gillen, the one-shot will basically cover the "nativity of Thanos," and the civil war that led to his creation. Gillen called the issue "epic, brutal, and gleefully bleak," which he says perfectly encapsulates Thanos. Check out the solicit for Eternals: Thanos Rises #1 by Marvel Comics below.

  • Eternals: Thanos Rises #1
  • By Kieron Gillen, Dustin Weaver, and Esad Ribic.
  • Eternals are created, not born. They have families, but their families make no new children.
  • It’s simply not what Eternals do.
  • Some of them thought they could find a way to change that and believed it would be for the best.
  • They were terribly, terribly wrong.

The teases suggest that perhaps Thanos was created as a tool of war, which might explain how he got the Deviant gene to begin with. If the Mad Titan was specifically brought to life to aid the efforts of war, it would add an incredible new dimension to the character and further expand on how he became Marvel's most feared villain. Given the grand scope of the Eternals comics, the story is setting up to be quite epic. Eternals: Thanos Rising is in comic book stores in September.
