So I read the first issue of the new Thanos series and to me, he looks really off. Not to mention he uses a weapon to kill everyone.

@magian: I like his look in this. Just doesn't feel like the Thanos that have been on the pages for the last 30+ years.....

Hasn't his head always been more wide than this? They changed his actual head lol

@darthvaderrocks: I think it's his headgear that makes it look that way. Also, his costume looks way weirder.

I like the guy here tho

@darthvaderrocks: It's probably grows on you once you read more. I like it, but it's wierding me out at the same time..

@byondeon: Yeah I enjoyed issue 1 and will continue with the series so hopefully it does grow on me. If it doesn't I might just drop it unless the story is really, really good.

@darthvaderrocks: I just hope they drop Thanos weapon and show his true powers. I will still read it, but Thanos doesn't feel like Thanos when he have a weapon.

@byondeon: Eh I don't mind Thanos having a weapon mainly because we know he can use his true powers at any moment he chooses too. Who knows, we might get some good feats for his new weapon which could be cool

@darthvaderrocks: True, but so far, it's underwhelming. All it did was cleave some fodder in half.

His look is alright, and it’s supposed to be his pre-death amp self, who looked a little different than the one we know today. This version, looks wise seems to be a blend of the two. My biggest problem with the comic wasn’t his look, it was his characterization.

@phillip33: We have seen early Thanos tho and he looked like his "ordinary" self. And that was before this prequel.

Also, yeah, now that you mention it, might be his characterization that feel kinda off for some reason. One part of that might be the weapon and the way he acts during his genocidal tirades..

@byondeon: He did use a freezing gun against a crazy Thor in Blood & Thunder though.

His mouth is much too high on his face.

@mar-vell92: That wasn't a freezing gun, it was an energy prison thing. And he only used it because his objective wasn't to fight Thor, it was to fight Odin. And he did use it against Odin too but he broke it like it was a piece of paper. But he didn't use it in a fight. He was using it because his objective was to talk to Odin, so he didn't have time to fight so he needed to end it, so he imprisoned Thor.

He always looks better when he's drawn with the red glowing eyes like he used to be.

Eyes are too small, chin too narrow, mouth not pronounced enough.

@spambot: He used to have pitch black eyes not red.

It was both. It would be pitch black or glowing red inside of the black.

Plus the cheek bones aren't pronounced enough and the nose is being drawn more like a normal nose instead of the short stubby one he used to have.

@spambot: Thanos had red glowing eyes ?

Yes. Usually when his eyes were actually drawn it would be as glowing yellow or red balls.
