"I'm a sucker for a smart girl and the big angry guy who becomes her father figure. When I put some thought into what Thanos and Gamora's early relationship would have been like in an interpersonal sense, not the thousand-yard-overview we get in the old books, I go back to 'True Grit.' Or I think of team-ups like Sandor Clegane and Arya Stark from 'Game of Thrones,' you know? These classic duos where nothing threatens the big bad guy -- except for a kid. And it's not because kids are cute and vulnerable, it's because they're honest. And they don't have a full understanding of the world around them yet, so they're somewhat unaware of nuance and danger. And Gamora's even more dangerous than a regular child -- because Thanos has taken everything from her. She's got nothing to lose. And they share a moment in the first issue that I won't spoil here -- that answers the question: why her? Why Gamora?" -- Tini Howard

"I consider [Thanos] to be an anti-hero…because he’s been the good guy as often as he’s been the bad guy in the stories. So I don’t consider him a villain. But because he’s not in that hero category I always found him more fascinating to write. I didn’t have to get restricted on where he would go and how he would react to things. I could make him not as appealing as I would have to make him if he were a hero. He could go off on his own little dark ways and it would still make perfect sense." -- Jim Starlin

"For quite some time, I have had the privilege of pretty much solely determining where our Mad Titan would go in his fictional life. It's work I feel I can be proud of. But Thanos is the property of Marvel Entertainment, and with the movies on the horizon, Big Purple is about to enter the rarified classification of being a cultural icon, a character bigger than the comic books, writers and artists that birthed him. Marvel Editorial has made it clear they want fresh takes on the Titan, so who am I to argue with them? It's been fun, Big Guy. Go out and have an interesting and entertaining life after." -- Jim Starlin

He gets (understandably) the Darkseid comparison, but that's only ever a surface one. They couldn't be further apart to write. Darkseid is cold. Thanos is hot. Darkseid's genocide is math. Thanos' genocide is poetry. In short, Thanos is basically a purple Lord Byron. -- Kieron Gillen
