Thanos’ Son, Thane, Has Been Revealed

In New Avengers #10, Thane was revealed at the end to be an unnamed adult bandage up the injured arm of a child. But this character wasn’t given a name until this weekend when Marvel’s Facebook game Marvel: Avengers Alliance unveiled a new character named Thane who is dubbed as a “mysterious ally of the Inhumans.” And “a mysterious being” who appeared during Thanos’ invasion on Earth. “What he is and where he came remains to be seen,” the bio reads, “but one thing is for certain: he holds tremendous power in his hands.”

And then Thanos arrived. How did I get these horrible powers? Why? Did they come from him? All I know is that just as he came to Earth, I… changed. Suddenly I had the power of life and death in my hands. But I could not control it, and the people around me paid the price. Everyone that I had once healed, everyone I knew… dead. I ran before I could kill again, only to find an even greater murderer in my path. Thanos and his lieutenants were coming… for me. This Thanos creature… what does he want from me? If I give myself up to him, will he stop killing people? Or will he just use my powers to kill even more? I need someone to help me understand what I am… what I’ve become. Is that you, Agent? Do you think you can control death itself? I doubt it. But the truth is, I have no other choice. I cannot go back to the way I was, and I cannot go to Thanos. That leaves me with you. But I warn you. Try to use my powers for evil, and I’ll show you what they can do… in abundance.”

A lot can be drawn from this and still leave so much to question. Yet, what we do know is that both characters in game and the comic are seen as healers and doctors.

Do you think this is really his son?
