Thanos had hundreds of children in the Marvel universe, including his 6 known adopted children, Proxima Midnight, Ebony Maw, Corvus Glaive, Cull Obsidian, Luphomoid Nebula, and the Zehoberei Gamora. Did you know he had a biological Inhuman son?
Thane is Thanos’ last biological son from an Inhuman woman. Inhumans are altered human beings; they are the result of Kree’s experiment on Earth’s then-primitive race Homo sapiens from the Celestials creation out of Homo Erectus. Kree created a genetically advanced Inhuman race to avoid the human race’s evolutionary stagnation and to form a powerful human race as soldiers against the Skrulls. However, even though the experiment was successful, Kree abandoned the Inhumans because of the genetic prophecy, which will destroy the Kree Supreme Intelligence.
What abilities do Inhumans have?
Since different from their original race on Earth, several Inhumans formed a new society and thrived in seclusion.
After years of conflict with the human race, Inhumans left the Earth. They relocated to the Moon and named their small city Attilan.
Since Inhumans experimented with mutagenic Terrigen Mist, they also have various superpowers, including:
- Accelerated probability
- Amphibious adaptation
- Chrono vision
- Danger precognition
- Darkforce manifestation
- Death prediction
- Destiny manipulation
- Earth manipulation
- Electric manipulation
- Elemental manipulation
- Energy manipulation
- Superhuman reflexes, speed, and strength
There are more superpowers that each Inhumans obtain. However, the process of Terrigenesis that gave the Inhumans powers caused genetic damage, which led some to have odd appearances.
Who is Thane?
The character Thane was discovered after it was revealed in Marvel comics that Thanos was searching for his lost son. The story started when a descendant Inhuman tribe came in conflict with Thanos and his army, an Inhuman woman returned to Earth pregnant.
Thane was born and raised in Orollan, Greenland’s hidden city. Orollan is a place where the lost tribe of Inhumans lived. Thane, with his knowledge of medicine, grew up helping others. He is known as a physical and psychological healer. Thane lived a normal Inhuman life until Thanos arrived on the Earth, wiping out half of all beings in the universe using the gauntlet.
After seeing so many Inhumans were wiped out, Thane stole the Terrigen Crystal. Even against the elders’ wishes, he underwent Terrigenesis to become a complete Inhuman. His objective was to protect the remaining Inhuman race in Orollan. However, after Thane had unleashed his powers, it killed everyone in Orollan – the remaining people he cared for and loved.
After what he has done, he contained his powers in seclusion in the now-empty ruins of Orollan.
