Since his first appearance in 1973, Thanos has been one of the most formidable foes The Avengers and company have ever faced.
With the Infinity Gauntlet at his side, it truly seems as if no one could pose a threat to his might. Or could they?
As it happens, there are actually a number of heavy hitters within the Marvel Universe that could certainly give Thanos a run for his money. Though we may sadly never see some of these dastardly denizens of destruction hit the big screen, it’s hard not to imagine just how much damage they could do were they allowed.
Fortunately - thanks to the seemingly endless wealth of villainy within the Marvel continuity - we can still crack open a comic to see many of these monsters for ourselves, even if they never hit the big screen.
Whether they're an immortal cosmic entity or just a man with powers beyond even the gods, it takes quite a punch to put Thanos in his place. Lucky for them, these fearsome villains might just have the mettle to take him on...
