"It is about how Thanos came to be," said Keatinge in the article. "I don't go Forrest Gump on it, but aspects of the Marvel Universe have been born that directly turn Thanos into who he is." The series starts back — way back — in Marvel history, taking place before the events of 1961's Fantastic Four #1.
"He ends up at the point where he's worshiping Death and destroying universes," Keatinge said. "How do you get to that head space where you're like, 'This is what I want to do with the rest of my life?'"Thanos is also currently serving as the antagonist in Marvel's Avengers Assemble series, and the publisher is reprinting two key stories featuring the character in September.
