Who Is Thanos From The Avengers?

Dear Sara,

Who is the alien who turns up at the very end of THE AVENGERS? What does he signify?

Best Wishes,
Heidi K.

Dear Heidi,

Thanos, Avengers

The alien with the scary smile is Thanos, who is in love with Death. He signifies big trouble for the Avengers if he’s back in AVENGERS 2.

Quick Alien Joke:
What do you call world travelers who give you nothing but trouble?

The name's Sara Bellum, and I'm the editor-at-large here at BuzzyMag - the hostess with the mostess, if you will. I like to think that my first calling is fighting crime and delivering a heaping dose of sweet, sweet justice to all manner of thugs, miscreants, hoodlums, ruffians, and ne'er-do-wells, but unfortunately, violent vigilantism doesn't exactly pay big bucks these days.  

Times are tough, my friends, and I've got bills to pay, so I decided to put my encyclopedic knowledge of all things sci-fi & fantasy-related to use to help me land a day job. To tell you the truth, it's kind of a nice change of pace. My manicures have been lasting a bit longer lately.
