If you are a fan of the old Marvel comics and follow the comics, you must already know that there is a brother of Thanos. And this brother of Thanos is called Starfox, and he made his first appearance in the Marvel comics in the year 1973.

And yet, both Thanos and Starfox were created by the same person, and I'm talking about none other than the Jim Starlin. And no, Jim Starlin is not the same person as Stan Lee, but he is also an excellent comic book author.

After all, Jim was responsible for creating Thanos, a mad titan who was introduced to theaters and made Marvel profit a lot from him. And without further ado, let's now get back to talking about Thanos' brother, which is the main topic of this article.

Differences Between Starfox and Thanos

Both Thanos and his brother Starfox aka Eros are the children of the Eternals Eternals A'Lars (well known as Mentor) and Sui-San. Starfox is Thanos' younger brother and in turn, they are both the complete opposite of each other.

While on one side we have a mad Titan with an immense thirst for power and contempt for everyone, on the other side we have a carefree young man. And this carefree young man, like most young people, only wants to know two things, enjoy life and women.

It is worth mentioning that Thanos was born with the rare Deviant Syndrome, and this made him not look similar to humans. With that, Thanos suffered several prejudices throughout his life and even his mother tried to kill him.

Unlike Thanos, Starfox grew up being extremely spoiled and this made him a carefree narcissist. He only came to face life more seriously after Thanos attacked Titan, an attack that caused his mother's death.

Starfox vs Thanos

Above we had said that Thanos decided to attack Titan and that ended up resulting in the death of his mother, but other consequences also emerged. Starfox, Thanos' brother, decided to fight him, and for that he teamed up with the then Captain Mar-Vell, Avengers and Titan survivors.

And who won this fight was Starfox, who after the victory he left Titan, which was already destroyed by the War. And he decided to go in search of other planets inhabited by humanoids, wanting to find two things, pleasure and fun.

And one of those planets he makes a stop on is Earth, where he even meets the avengers again and I even asked to join the group. After a period of training he ends up being accepted into the group and helps them defeat some great villains, such as Maelstrom and Terminus.

Now we're going to talk about the abilities of Starfox, Thanos' brother and who appeared in the post-credits scenes of the Eternals movie. With that we know that he is already being introduced in theaters, but calm down, as we said before, he is the complete opposite of his brother.

  • superhuman strength
  • almost immortality
  • Immunity Against Earth Diseases
  • Flight
  • Force field that allows water and space travel
  • Telekinesis
  • Great scientific knowledge
  • Brain Pleasure Center Stimulation: With this ability, you can amplify the effects of euphoria, pacification, and even sedation on another person.

As we can see here, he is a character that has everything to gain a lot of prominence in cinemas in this new phase of Marvel. Because he has powers that draw a lot of attention, and the ones that caught my attention the most were Telekinesis and his great scientific knowledge.

With Telekinesis he can move objects with the power of his mind, that is, without touching them or resorting to a physical cause. Already with his scientific knowledge, he can bring several new features to the MCU, such as new technologies that have not yet been introduced.

Actor Who Will Play Thanos' Brother in Movies

And the one chosen to play the role of Starfox is an actor that many people around the world already know as a singer. And I'm talking about Harry Styles, yes, himself, who was part of the band One Direction, which gained worldwide fame.

However, despite gaining fame as a singer, Harry Styles has already done work as an actor and was even highly praised. And one of the jobs he's done is playing one of the main soldiers in Christopher Nolan's movie Dunkirk.

Don't worry, Harry's work as an actor doesn't stop here, he's also going to star in two great films that should debut next year. In Don't Worry My Darling, he plays the mysterious husband of Florence Pugh's character. He is also the star of the feature My Policeman, where he will be one of the protagonists, alongside Emma Corrin and David Dawson.

Will Starfox Appear in She-Hulk Series?

I don't know if you know, but next August a new series will debut on Disney+. Which is She-Hulk. And yet, here we would have a good opportunity for Marvel, through this series, to introduce Thanos' brother to the MCU once and for all.

I don't know if you know, but in the comics, Starfox has had a back-and-forth relationship with Avenger. And she even acted as his lawyer when the hero was accused of using his empathic powers to commit sexual abuse.

And that made her start to question whether their sexual encounters were also forced by Starfox using his powers. However, he did not use his powers only in the relationship aspect, as he has already made juries and judges reach a verdict that favored him.

Now we just have to wait for the She-Hulk series to find out if Thanos' brother will be there or not. And not to mention that at first Marvel may end up choosing to leave him only in the Eternals Core.

Starfox Forms the Dark Guardians

Eros, also known as Starfox, who is Thanos' brother, has already created a group in the comics called the dark guardians. And yet, this group was formed to prevent Thanos from coming back to life (in the comics, the mad Titan has died several times).

In this one of the deaths that Thanos has had in the comics he simply leaves a will, where he has some instructions, do you know what those instructions are? If fulfilled, he could simply come back to life incarnated in someone else's body. So Starfox gathers Nebula, the Cosmic Ghost Rider, Spectre and the Gladiator and assembles the group to stop that from happening.

And this group suspects that Thanos wanted to use Gamora as a vessel, so that he could come back to life. They then confront the Guardians of the Galaxy and kidnap the Titan's adopted daughter, with a single goal, to execute her, but... Hela, the Asgardian Goddess of Death, didn't let that happen and revealed that Thanos actually wanted to channel Starfox.
