    The massive stature and strength of Black Dwarf make him the wrecking ball of Thanos' lieutenants in the Black Order.

    Black Dwarf was sent to Wakanda as part of Thanos' invasion. However, his army was repelled by Wakandan technology and soldiers, and he himself eventually being defeated by Black Panther.

    This Nihilist Although he personality appears the most normal he is much more at peace with oblivion than the other followers of Thanos.
