Thanos is the primary antagonist of the Infinity War Event. Before Infinity War, he was referenced a number of times in many events, frequently appearing as a silhouette holding an Infinity Gauntlet on World News.
Thanos directed Mephisto, Hela, and Kingpin to organize a jail break from Avengers Academy. With his acolytes' help, they stole multiple artifacts and weapons from the Avengers Academy vaults, and freed Attuma, Red Skull, the Scientist Supreme, and more, from their cells.
Infinity War Event Edit
When Thanos finally invaded Midgard, the Avengers defeated him by collaborating with Mephisto and Hela to secretly replace an Infinity Stone on his gauntlet. Iron Man forged the fake stone based off of Mephisto's Darkforce ring. While Hela distracted Thanos, Ant-Man swapped the true stone with the fake one. With the modifications, the Avengers trapped Thanos in the Darkforce Dimension.
