Are they brothers?
Thanos And Darkseid
Darkseid wants the 'Anti-Life Equation", Thanos wants to "marry" Death. Same thing. Thanos is pretty much Marvel's version of Darkseid, but they aren't related.
Both Marvel and DC have characters that are quite similar to one another in a way, and this is one of the more obvious ones.
However, both of these major villains are a lot of fun to read when they're well written, especially Thanos.
thanos is not a homage to darkseid in anyway BUT they are very well written and powerfull characters and after reading both major stories i have to say that thanos' THANOS QUEST/INFINITY GAUNTLET puts him as the one of the best written comic book characters in existence.. but thats another topic ^-^
