Seeking to bring “balance” to the universe by eliminating half of all living beings, Thanos collects the six Infinity Stones and gains god-like powers, bringing him into conflict with both the Avengers and the Guardians of the Galaxy, who ultimately join forces to defeat him. Initially played by Damion Poitier in his original appearance in 2012’s The Avengers and by Josh Brolin in subsequent appearances, Thanos has been described as the best villain in the MCU so far.
