A despot of intergalactic infamy, his goal is to collect all six Infinity Stones, artifacts of unimaginable power, and use them to inflict his twisted will on all of reality. Everything the Avengers have fought for has led up to this moment - the fate of Earth and existence itself has never been more uncertain.

    Thanos and his adopted children the Black Order, track down the Statesman, the Sakaaran vessel ferrying the survivors of Hela's attack on Asgard. Storming the vessel, Thanos and his minions mercilessly slaughter half the Asgardians until only Thor and Loki remain. Having taken the Tesseract from Asgard shortly before its destruction, Loki is confronted by Thanos, managing to stall him long enough for the Hulk to engage him in battle. But Thanos is able to easily beat the Hulk and prepares to kill him. Heimdall, moments before being slaughtered by Thanos, uses the power of the Bifrost to send Hulk to Earth with the last of his strength. Thanos threatens to kill Thor with the Power Stone unless Loki gives him the Tesseract. Initially, Loki tells Thanos to go ahead, but has a change of heart and gives him the Tesseract after Thor's head is severely burned by the Power Stone. Thanos shatters the Tesseract to reveal the Space Stone and sends his children to hunt the Infinity Stones from Earth and Loki offers himself as a guide. He feigns loyalty to Thanos and attempts to stab him, but the Space Stone holds Loki in place while Thanos crushes his neck and kills him and then destroys the rest of the Statesman with the Power Stone, leaving Thor drifting in space.
