Over the years, there have been many superhero movies with many villains, but few can compare to Thanos.

Let’s talk about our favorite Marvel villain, shall we? That’s right, we’re going to do a deep dive into our favorite God of mischief, brother of Hela and Thor, the fabulous Frost Giant extraordinaire: Loki!

Superheroes have been a prevalent part of my life, leaving me begging for sequels and fostering my brother’s love for the comics.
