First Appearance

Thanatos is an ancient minor Greek God and embodiment of Death. Thanatos appears to people who are about to die and takes their souls into the underworld. He manifested himself in the midst of the battle between the Olympus group led by Hera, and the New and Mighty Avengers, led by Athena and Hercules, announcing that one of the combatants is going to die.

Thanatos waited until the end of the battle, and then finally revealed who was it that he had come to collect: Athena Parthenos, killed by Delphyne Gorgon. However, Athena was revived shortly thereafter, when Zeus and Hera were killed by Typhon, passing the divine thunderbolt down to Zeus' daughter (Athena).
