"He’s a character I can’t help but feel for as I’m writing this story. Initially he’s driven by questions of identity. Like a lot of teens he wants to know, 'Who am I? And why am I here? What am I meant to do? And why am I different from the other kids?' Then of course a big driving force of what he becomes is love. And in some sense the story of Thanos is a very strange romance. He develops this love for someone who may or may not be Death personified. So that relationship, the romance angle of the book, is a little bit different than how we’ve seen it portrayed in the past, but it is a big part of the story. I think in some sense if you look at the story of Thanos you could almost say that his greatest crime is that he loved too much." -- Jason Aaron

Fun fact: the trade includes an updated Thanos bio in the back including the story that makes it 100% clear that this is the real Death, not a hallucination.

So.. Thanos' whole deal is that he was Brung Low By Wimmen.

Never seen that before. Sigh.

But I think this is the first time Death has been portrayed as deliberately egging him on, rather than passive-aggressively standing there as Thanos tried to win her favor.

And frankly, I think Thanos as a character suffers for it,. Death doubly so.

It might not have been as platant, but Death has always been depicted as having manipulated Thanos in his childhood.

In fairness, that's only the narrative if you accept that "Death" is an independent entity. If she's just the product of Thanos' mental illness, then he's been brought low by himself.

The problem is that Death as an independent entity is the more established narrative.

I know I shouldn't expect much from Aaron, but this feels very OOC for Death.

Those people, including the kids, are Titanian Eternals. Almost totally unkillable.

Also, I don't think the artist had seen any of the pictures of Titans surface.

IIRC, an Eternal can be permanently killed if their will is broken.

Also, if anyone's going to figure out a way to permanently kill Eternals, it'd be Thanos.

Most Titanian Eternals probably aren't as unkillable as Earth Eternals, since they/their parents weren't present when Kronos' experiment went kablooey. Only Mentor would fall to that category.

Just wondering, what's Starfox's role in this mini? I don't see him in any of the scans.

That's because he's permanently off-panel.

So the Death-girl is shown to be visible only to Thanos... Yet near the start, she's talking to the other kids?

This... kind of makes the Infinity Gauntlet storyline make no sense?

Right? And Thanos' exasperation at the start of Annihilation when finally, finally Death deigns address him.

Side note, wow, I can't even discuss Thanos without slipping into Starlin-speech, apparently.
