HistoryEdit

Thanos, desiring to rule the universe, made a deal with Loki through his intermediary, the Other, to acquire the Tesseract in exchange for an army of Chitauri with which Loki would conquer Earth.

Using the power of the Tesseract, Loki opened a wormhole in the sky of New York City, from which Thanos deployed the army of Chitauri warriors whom the Asgardian commanded in an attack. But Loki's plans failed when both the Asgardian and the Chitauri were beaten back by the Avengers. The Avenger Iron Man then redirected a nuclear missile sending it into the wormhole, nearly killing himself in the process. The nuclear missile detonated near the Chitauri base, destroying it and the Chitauri on the other side of the wormhole.

When the Other reported on the defeat, announcing that humans were too "unruly" and to try to conquer them would be to "court death," Thanos only grinned with anticipation of things to come.[1]
