Yup agreed, thanks for sharing but this is retarded so far.

Appreciate the posting, but that may just be the most contrived thing I've attempted to read all year.

Aaron is one of my favorite writers. I was feeling pretty sorry for Thanos while reading the story. So I suppose I can appreciate that.

This is kinda dumb so far but I'm looking forward to seeing where he goes with the story. Phone Post

Why can't a bad guy just be a really bad guy. Why do they always have some kind of sappy story?

Because in thr psychology of psychopaths and bad guys there is always some emotional trigger as a child Phone Post

Yes. That is why I loved the Joker in The Dark Knight. He didn't pose some generic bullshit sob story for why he was evil. He started to do it with the whole "you know how I got these scars?" When he did it the first time I was like "FUCK" but when he kept changing the backstory of his scars I loved it.

To me, a character that is just pure evil for no reason is more interesting than your typical "I got beat up as a child so now I like killing things" evil.

Right. Why can't a psycho just be a freaking psycho? I'm tired of bad guys gone good stories. I want my bad guys to wear black hats and my good guys to wear white hats. I'd like it to go back to the days like that. How about a bad guy who's really just a bad guy. I'm also sick of movies that have to have a love interest. I got a great idea! How about a Transformers movie that is about TRANSFORMERS! It could be awesome. I'm just getting tired of this same ol' plot over and over again. It's like everyone has decided to use one base script to begin every story.

Not every psycho has a bad childhood, some are just wired wrong.

Thanos has always been written as being that guy. He was just born wrong. Trying to make it some cliche, lame ass picked on geek story sucks.

I haven't read the other issues but this one doesn't seem to be the typical "I was picked on as a child" story.

He's smart, accepted and even has girls interested in him.

The only thing more cliche than a "good kid turns bad" story is the "evil kid born evil story".

The world is not as simple as "oh he's just evil." this isn't the silver age of comics anymore.

Thanos is not simply a bad guy and he hasn't been for a long while.

Personally im excited to see where Aaron goes with this story. As one of my favorite villains, im happy to see more of his story. I've always been sympathic to the character and this is driving the point home.

Poor dudes brain works so well he can remember his mother trying to kill him. So he just decides to stop sleeping? Damn. Phone Post

There are a thousand ways they could go with this, but this direction sucks. Face it, Aaron screwed the pooch on this one, big time.

I've only read this issue and haven't made my mind up as to how I feel about the direction yet.

I remain optimistic because Aaron is the shit. Phone Post

allyourbasebase - I wish I could read one issue of a comic and know what happens in the future . . . Phone Post 3.0

How about learning how to read one issue and realizing that issue sucks first?

That little goth chick he's swooning over seems familiar.  Maybe Death took a humanoid form to make Thanos who he is destined to be.

I would have liked to see something along the lines of Thanos is still born, touches the face of death and they draw him back to life. From that moment forward he hates life and those that forced it on him. He did say something along those lines way back, not so much that he hated life, but was angry at those that stole death from him.

That's what I thought was going on.

I thought he had said he was angry he was stolen from death because he was resurrected by the church/oblivion in Thanos Imperative. Was this before that?

This was way back in the early 90's in the Surfer books when he came back and started his quest for the Infinity Gems. He made some statement about his mother force feeding him into this hell called life or something like that.

That was awful.

There is good Aaron (SCALPED)

And bad Aaron (AvsX)

This is clearly the latter. 

Thanos is a complex character so there's certainly precedent for him not being evil incarnate, but child Thanos who everyone thinks is cool is a major stretch. Only if Starfox is controlling them.
