Thanos Costume Change

#1 Posted by daak1212 (7867 posts) - - Show Bio

I normally see pictures of Mr.T in the tacky gaudy blue yellow suit with the hat.  Recently I have discoverd that he also worse a costume that was different than that, such as in anihilation and when he fought Kosmos and won.  I'm asking when did this change in appreal happen and why wasnt it permanent!!!

It was never explained on panel. I guess Giffen thought the old costume was just to damn silly, and I guess Abnett and Lang didn't agree with him.

Thanos' costume should be a convict suit since he's been arrested by the NYPD before.

love all the variations of Ironman though btw Thanos was first introduced as an Ironman villain

I assume you're talking about this one...

It actually first appeared in Thanos #7, when he was trying to make a "pilgrimage" of sorts to the Crunch. Which I find rather interesting when I was finally able to read Annihilation considering that is where the Annihilation Wave started. I really wish he would have kept it, but at least they explained the old outfit in TI with it was sorta replicated from Knowhere's archives.

I was wondering how he got his old costume when he just came back. He was naked when he came out of the cocoon. Did the Guardians of the Galaxy make him a new costume to match his old one?

@jloneblackheart: Sorry I don't have the issue infront of me, I left it at a friends house, but I am pretty sure they said it was replicated on Knowhere. I kinda wish they went back to the newer Annihilation costume, but I don't mind the blue and gold attire.

Yeah thats the one,  I prefer that one to the classic silly purple one.

Actually I think they said in TI# 1 that it was a costume creater thingy, he said it like 2 pannels before he flipped on Moondragon for showing her displesure in working with him.
