"Thanos fight ability is far above an xmen any day he fought thor  and beat him even when he enter warrior madness with just h2h combat"
Thanos isn't a better fighter than Cyclops,Gambit,Kitty Pryde,Wolverine,Boom Boom,Shatterstar,Cable,Domino,Longshot,Psylocke or several other X characters I could name.

"thanos would wipe the floor  with gladiator someone i don't think any of the x men could beat  "
You're missing the point of the thread. The question is whether Thanos has fighting skill, not whether he has powers. Of course he could blast his way through X-men and Gladiator at the same time with his powers....

okay heres my proof

This isn't proof.Thor wasn't in his right mind and Thanos said so.Out-fighting someone who isn't fighting to the best of their ability isn't proof Thanos is a good fighter.

EDIT:And Thanos ended up leaving the fight to get a weapon.Thor threw him through a wall and made him bleed.Thor was unharmed in this fight.

Only reason thanos left was because he got bored
Thor was losing  and he was enjoying the fight  thor had enter warrior madness which made him stronger and thats only reason he didnt get owned he was armed heres proof
Thanos left because he was getting his ass bussed.Despite what he says.Thor wasn't losing because he wasn't hurt..Thanos was.You didn't have to prove Thanos used a weapon..I know he did and I told you he did.

"his nose started bleeding
that was it Thor was receiving same amount damage
either way thanos fighting tyrant displays how he has a superior fighting ability  not just average ( x men fight other mutant that usually weaker or team up to fight someone superior

"
Thor didn't receive the same amount of anything.Thor didn't bleed,Thor had no scratches,not nothing.
Tyrant is powerful but he's not a great fighter so again this proves nothing.

??? So the guy's a dunce outside of blasting! As soon as someone lays a hand on him, he's gone, cause you know, he can't fight himself out of a can! Is that why he took down that whole mercernary army in the first issue of Cosmic Powers, that's suppose to be one of the most powerfull mercernary guild in the galaxy,  cause he's got no fighting skills? In all honesty, i'm still laughing at your come back, "With his powers" lol funny to the bone, i'll give you that much."

I don't think so because he's saying Gamora only got one-shot and I recall her getting several and not being hit back.

gamora didnt beat thanos in that fight she just went for a pressure point that was supposed to stop thanos, but it didnt work thanos was faking it and gamora acknowledged it and stated in a real fight thanos would beat her if she got close to him.

He's still nowhere near as good a fighter as she is.People keep mentioning him training her as a feat of his fighting skill but in all actuality it was her training elsewhere that made her the most dangerous woman in the world.

She can't beat him not because she's a worst fighter but because he's more durable then any amount of pain she can output.If you go back and look at all of Thanos's h2h fights,soon as he starts getting owned he brings the energy attacks out.

Also Marvel rates Gamora a 7 for fighting skill and Thanos a 4.

No..If Thanos wasn't so durable she would have knocked him out on the first hit.
Dodging also has alot to do with speed...not just skill.Also he didn't dodge any of Gamora's attacks.She connected pretty much any time she attacked.

The whole fight has been posted, a few pages back! They tussled, she hit him with a nerve shot right under his throat, he pretended it worked and stood still pretending to be immobilized to see if she'd fall for it and lose the play fight if she did and went in close enough, but she's to smart for that and knew Thanos too well and knew he was playing a trap for her.  That's about it!

Thanos training Gamora doesn't prove he's a good fighter because as far as we can tell she has surpassed the master and she has done so by way of training elsewhere.

You tell me.You're making the claim.If I said anyone was a good fighter I would have proof to back it up.Thanos doesn't ever display any fighting skill.He's not better a fighter than Hulk or again Jubilee.I don't give a sh#t what Gamora said.I read the damn scans.If she had a hard time finding an opening..why did all of her attacks connect?

Fighting Skills: Although Thanos has generally eschewed physical combat, he has demonstrated formidable hand-to-hand fighting skills
Powers and abilities

Thanos possesses a wide range of abilities, some of which are common to the Titanian Eternals, and others which have been acquired through bionic amplification, mysticism, and augmentation by Death itself. In addition to superior levels of superhuman strength, stamina, and particularly durability, Thanos has shown himself capable of absorbing and directing enormous quantities of cosmic energy, and using it to shield himself. The Titanian is also capable of matter manipulation, telekinesis, and resistance to powerful telepathic assaults. Thanos can also temporarily increase his powers by absorbing energy from an unknown source of quasi-mystical nature.

Thanos possesses a superhuman intellect, originally dedicated to the annihilation of life and the mastery of any technology/mysticism which would enable him to achieve this goal. He possesses technology that allows force field projection, time travel, movement through alternate dimensions, and teleportation over interstellar distances. Thanos also trained his adopted daughter Gamora to become one of the universe's most adept female assassins.

If this actually proved anything the thread would have been over by now.
I know what Thanos's powers are.Has nothing to do with fighting skill and this thing says he has demonstrated formidable h2h SKILLS however...he has not.
Also he trained Gamora...but she received training elsewhere also.When her abilities were described in annihilation,her fighting skill was mentioned and she was shown training on other worlds but Thanos was never mentioned.

Vance Astro, You do know these are comic books that can be written one way or another, correct?

He could be written to fight hand-to-hand or use his powers. With all the powers Thanos has why would he want to fight like a common street thug?

He has fighting skills, but he will continue to use the easiest and quickest way to end a fight. Which isn't a fist fight.
#88 Edited by forze (435 posts) - - Show Bio

I agree on Vance on the fact that Thanos isn't really a H2H powerhouse.  However, it doesn't make him less dangerous as he has other tools to defeat his enemy.

#89 Posted by Hawk (15833 posts) - - Show Bio

I can agree with Vance....without all his extra powers and strength his fighting skills are lacking. His Kung fu isn't very strong.

Yea..I know comics can be written one way or the other but Thanos has consistently been written to avoid hand to hand combat.
When he does use hand to hand..even when against someone far weaker than him like the Thing..he is shown to have to use energy attacks or some other means because he's getting his ass handed to him.The time he fought Prof.Hulk,Thor,The Thing and Herc all at the same time was the only time I saw him display he could hold his own h2h...it also kind of makes no sense considering the Thing and Thor were handling before then by themselves until he started with the energy attacks.

hes a great h2h fighter
 hes fought  Thor warrior madness mostly using h2h combat and still he didn't get owned(Thor whose had hundreds of years combat experience)
1.No,he's not
2.Warrior Madness Thor is a stronger Thor but not a better fighter.He was obviously not fighting to the best of his ability.Even Thanos made reference to it.Thor had gone "mad" thus the term Warrior Madness.It doesn't matter how much experience Thor has because he's still only a level 4 fighter.He's no better a fighter than the Hulk.You have never seen Thor beat someone because he was a better fighter than them.He does use strategy and things like that but he doesn't out fight people.Also,regular Thor with no power gem just the help of the Thing was knocking Thanos around..which again proves Thanos is a garbage fighter.

Skill,  Style and Experience  all can't really be compares when you think about it on even scales they are different. Thanos is a brawler when he respects his foe and will blast the heck out of what he consider flee or a waste of time. 
 
And I don't think Vance is on crack but he may have cought a contact high thinking that wher in the same fight class.

So you think I smoke crack because Thanos is a joke in h2h combat.If it wasn't for his physical attributes Cap would have kicked his ass during infinity gauntlet."
Thanos is a expert in H2H combat.  He just chooses to keep himself above such pathetic avenues of conflict.  It's not that he does not know how to fight, or wont fight . . .it's because he chooses not to fight.  His intellect is his superior aspect and it is what he chooses to utilize and practice; because, he knows that the mind will always win out against the physical.
"
Well Thanos does like to Thug It Out a bit too though... I mean Thanos went heads up with Thor in Warrior Madness... he muscled out Tyrant... he muscled out Thor and Thing also on another occasion... so Thanos does like to Scrap on some Level...
"

So do you or do you not think Thanos is a better fighter than Jubilee?"

Dude, let me put it to you this way, he trained Gamorra, who's known as the world's deadliest woman in the universe, so what does that tell ya :-)






Not only is he a master at H2H, but he's a master tactician in it as well, he's crafter enough to let the opponent think he/she's got the upper hand, only for them to find out when they're close enough, that they've just fallen into his trap, which Gamora, being trained by him and know's him well enough, wasn't gonna fall for it, or she would've been done :-) P.S. Vance just likes testing/teasing people :-) "
I'm sorry. I don't see this as proof that he is a great combatant. The fact that Thanos is as powerful as he is and he doesn't manage to incapitate one who is much less powerful than him isn't what I consider proof. Gamora even mentions "that speed and skill wing out over brute force evey time" which sounds more like proof that he isn't good at h2h. I'm not saying he isn't, I'm saying I need proof like someone mentioning (in a serious manner) " A depowered Thanos is skilled enough to beat anyone in h2h".

Jubilee is a better fighter than Thanos.The only time he has displayed fighting skill is when training Gamora and she's only a good fighter because she went around the world learning styles.Not because HE trained her.He has no style and his experience is worthless.All he does is use energy attacks and mind rape.Not use fighting skill.

I'm not saying he isn't, I'm saying I need proof like someone mentioning (in a serious manner) " A depowered Thanos is skilled enough to beat anyone in h2h".          
 
Then you need to go FIND your own proof, ie read his books/apearances, learn his background! It's quite a well known fact Thanos is more than a formidable h2h fighter, the fact that he trianed one of the deadliest women in the galaxy, and she still can't come close to him, speaks for it'self, if that doesn't sit well with you, then I can't help you out with your problem.

Jubilee is a better fighter than Thanos.The only time he has displayed fighting skill is when training Gamora and she's only a good fighter because she went around the world learning styles.Not because HE trained her.He has no style and his experience is worthless.All he does is use energy attacks and mind rape.Not use fighting skill.

That is just ridiculousness at it's finest right there! If you don't like Thanos, fair enough, but lets not make silly comments like that!

It would be a silly comment if it was false but it's not.
