Thanos: Son Of Titan May Not Be Completely Cancelled After All


Marvel have been pushing Thanos a lot lately. Ever since we saw him flash his pearly whites in the teaser scene at the end of The Avengers, he’s been popping up in the comics more often. Besides being the villain in the new Avengers Assemble comic, Marvel announced that a book by Joe Keatinge with Richard Elson on art titled Thanos: Son of Titan that would show the origin of the Mad Titan. We may not be seeing his origin for a while though.

Marvel made the tiniest bit of noise about the cancellation, including the note in the Marvel Mailer, a comics newsletter sent to retailer about last minute changes. No word from Marvel, or anybody really, about the cancellation for now. The dominant rumor is that it has to do with Thanos creator Jim Starlin planning a court case against Marvel. Starlin told the LA Times that he liked seeing his work on film, but he had to buy his own ticket and had received no financial compensation.

Not too long after the announcement, editor Stephen Wacker commented on the cancellation or delay of the book.
