I was going about developing a plot for Thanos(I'm making him more like Darkseid), and I'm stuck on "turn your idea into a story."
I don't know how to explain why the Titans are at war.

My Ideas So Far

Morvaxia is like Apokolips, and it is in Titan culture to "keep what you kill."

Thanos goes to Morvaxia to the king of the Titans, Kalibak, who lives on the
planet Morvaxia(they're at war with the Titans of New Eden, which is like New Genesis).

Kalibak, ordered a hit on Thanos, now Thanos is trying to figure out why
he was ordered to be killed. Thanos finds out that Kalibak is
his father(Kalibak orphaned Thanos wanting a son that didn't
have a mutation, Kalibak believed the mutation made Thanos weak).
Kalibak, to show how "weak" his son is, kills Lauresa, Thanos's lover.
In doing so, he angered Thanos and caused him to use his mutation(the
control of cosmic energy) to kill him. After slaughtering Kalibak,
Thanos sits in the throne of his father, grieving over his lover's death.
When he looks up, all of Kalibak's troops bow down to Thanos, and
Thanos replies "You keep what you kill."
(meaning he kept Kalibak's empire).

Thanos rules with a iron fist, due to the fact that his heart had
become cold and he eternally turns his back on love.

Origin of the Titan Civil War

My idea for the origin of the war is that The Titans had highly

advanced technology millions of years before any other race in the universe.

It was great power they had in their hands-the ability to cause
civilizations to either rise or fall.

And like all things that hold great power, some wanted it for good,
some wanted it for evil.

A great war broke out between the Titans. One day, the
planet Titanus(then the Titan's home world) was split in half.
One half of the planet was claimed by Titans who wanted the power to be
used for good-they named the planet New Eden. The other half of the
planet was claimed by Titans who wanted the power to be used
for evil-they named the planet Morvaxia.

What do you all think about my origin story?

"You keep what you kill" is the best part of all of this. Good line.

@RazzaTazz: I know you are not a big fan of Thanos, but if this was actually how he was written in comics, would you like him more?

@xxxddd: My aversion is for other reasons (partially that he is based on Darkseid who I dont like much). This is good though, you should write it!
