"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

Alan Moore: "In the course of the trial, there will be repercussions that stretch right back to the foundations of the Extreme Universe. We'll see pulp heroes, Wild West heroes, heroes from the first and second World Wars, Victorian heroes; there'll be barbaric heroes and chivalric knight-in-armor heroes. We'll be able to reintroduce a number of genres of comics that have since dried up and blown away. I want to make those genres work again within the confines of the Extreme Universe so that there could be a mini-series in the future for a western hero. That way, it won't be such a narrow, steroid, superhero kind of scenario."

"Just to set the record straight, Marvel Comics didn't pull me off any books, they just made it clear they weren't interested in using me on any of the tie-in series to the movies or regular series. Even though I lobbied heavily to write the Thanos on-going that task was twice given to other writers, which is Marvel Editorial's right to do.

What I objected to and what will be keep me from doing any further work for Marvel Editorial was Tom Brevoort approving a plot for the current on-going series, which was pretty much the same as the Thanos story arc in the graphic novel trilogy Alan Davis and I have been working on for Tom for close to the past year. He had 200 pages of script and 100 pages of pencils on this project when he gave the green light to a strikingly similar plot. The on-going will be in print before the graphic novel trilogy. To avoid spoiling anyone's enjoyment of these two stories I will not be summarizing the striking similarities.

At first Tom denied giving his approval to the plot. When that turned out to be false, he switched to claiming there was nothing similar about the two plots. When that didn’t fly he changed his story to it was all an accident. These changes of excuse and other bits of procrastination ate up a month, by which time the current Thanos on-going art team was too far along for anything to be done about the situation. Too bad for me. So I am moving on.

And, yes, Marvel Entertainment has treated me very well and generously. Them I like." -- Jim Starlin

On a final note, Comixology is (for some reason) selling this for 99 cents here.

"As things went along though, it turns out that Thanos would have been much more loyal to Gamora than just about anybody else in the universe. She was basically his daughter - some other writers have given Thanos kids down the line but in love with Death as he was, the last thing he would have done was to have got progeny anywhere along the line, naturally. But I think there would have been a part of him that would have been… tender to somebody." — Jim Starlin
