- I will shred this universe, down to its last atom. And with the stones you've collected for me, create a new one. Teeming with life, they'll know not what it has lost, but what it has been given. A grateful universe...

Thanos was one of the last sons of A'Lars, progenitor of the second colony of Eternals on Titan, and Sui-San, the last survivor of the original settlement of Eternals on Titan. Born with grey, hide-like skin and a massive body due to being born with the Deviant Syndrome, Thanos was a morose child who became obsessed with the concept of death, with his own main objective growing up was to bring stability to the universe, as he believed its massive population would inevitably use up the universe's entire supply of resources and condemn it.
Before the Invasion, Thanos seemed to have the same history with his Earth-61615 counterpart, up until his situational servant that was the diabolical Asgardian God of Mischief Loki was able to successfully fool the Avengers and the rest of Earth's mightiest heroes like them, during the significant Battle of New York into fighting his mirage or illusion, while the villain continues to his to spread the chaos caused by his single-minded and bloodthirsty army coming through the wormhole created by the Tesseract. As a devastating consequence to his effective strategy, the invasion of the timeline itself was prolonged for more than a few weeks, longer than it was supposed to be.
New Set of Plans
Despite his vast armies of the Chitauri and powerful weaponry, Loki was eventually defeated during the Battle of New York, which had also then resulted with both the Scepter-laden Infinity Stone and the Tesseract falling into the hands of the extreme A.I. Ultron who proceeded to destroy the stones afterwards after knowing its universal power and how it should be destroyed in order to prevent powerful beings from acquiring it, along with Ultron mercilessly killing Loki, believing it would avenged those who perished during the Invasion whom Loki was partly responsible for. The Other then reported to his master how the inhabitants of Earth were not as weak as they were thought to be. He also declared that challenging the Earth's heroes would be to court Death. Thanos rose to his feet and smiled at the prospect of what was coming.
After meeting Death in a hallucinatory realm once more, his main objective is to set the course of extensive search for the Infinity Stones for the sake of getting to please her, and his desire to achieve this goal is what led him to forging deals with the villains and rogue warriors, most notably Loki and Ronan the Accuser in their respective campaigns against Earth and Xandar. Both of these alliances cost Thanos much of his resources, including one of the stones, his servant The Other, and the loyalty of his favorite daughter, Gamora. Eventually, an enraged but still prepared Thanos lost his patience with the ultimate failure of his servants and opted to seek out the remaining Stones personally, now all by himself and his personal forces of dominion.
