Thanos, the Mad Titan, is one of the most potent and formidable antagonists in the Marvel Cinematic Universe (MCU). He is the main antagonist of the Infinity Saga, which spans 28 films from Iron Man (2008) to Doctor Strange in the Multiverse of Madness (2022). He aims to collect all six Infinity Stones and use them to wipe out half of all life in the universe, believing that he is doing mercy to the overpopulated worlds. He first appeared in a post-credits scene of The Avengers (2012) and later became the central villain of Avengers: Infinity War (2018) and Avengers: Endgame (2019).

In Avengers: Infinity War, Thanos successfully gathered all the Infinity Stones and snapped his fingers, erasing half of all living beings from existence. This event is known as the Blip or the Snap. However, in Avengers: Endgame, the surviving heroes managed to travel back in time and retrieve the Infinity Stones from different historical points. They used them to reverse the Snap and bring back everyone Thanos dusted. However, this also attracted the attention of Thanos from 2014, who followed them to the present and launched a massive assault on Earth.

Thanos has been defeated twice in Avengers: Endgame. Firstly, Thor used his Stormbreaker in the opening scene to decapitate Thanos on the garden planet (0259-S). This was after Thanos had destroyed the Infinity Stones to prevent anyone from undoing his work. However, this did not undo the Snap, as the heroes had hoped. Secondly, towards the end of Avengers: Endgame, Iron Man defeats Thanos by snapping his fingers and wiping out Thanos and his army. This was after a fierce battle between Thanos and the Avengers, joined by their resurrected allies and other forces across the galaxy. Iron Man sacrificed his life to save the universe from Thanos’ tyranny.

However, there is another movie, Doctor Strange in the Multiverse of Madness (2022), where Thanos is shown to be defeated, but he’s not the main villain in that film. Instead, he appears in a different timeline. In this movie, it is revealed that Doctor Strange and the Illuminati defeated Thanos on Titan. The Illuminati is a secret group of superheroes Who are the Protectors of (Earth 838). All their members are Doctor Strange, Captain Peggy Carter, Karl Mordo, Black Bolt, Maria Rambeau / Captain Marvel, Reed Richards and Charles Xavier (Professor X). It’s uncertain whether Doctor Strange acted alone or if the entire Illuminati team was involved in defeating Thanos.

Thanos is a formidable foe who has challenged the Avengers and other heroes multiple times. He has been killed twice in Avengers: Endgame, but he may still exist in different timelines or realities. He is a character who has left a lasting impact on the MCU and its fans.

In conclusion, Thanos, the formidable villain of the Marvel Cinematic Universe, met his end in Avengers: Endgame through the heroic efforts of Thor and Iron Man. Thor decapitated him in the opening scene, but it didn’t undo the Snap. Ultimately, Iron Man’s self-sacrifice while wielding the Infinity Stones vanquished Thanos and saved the universe. Additionally, in Doctor Strange in the Multiverse of Madness, Thanos is defeated by Doctor Strange and the Illuminati. Still, it’s being determined if this event is part of the main MCU timeline. Thanos remains a lasting and impactful character in the Marvel universe, leaving fans with memorable moments and epic battles.
