Avengers: Endgame Art Pits Thanos Against the Kratos of God of War

Avengers: Endgame

Avengers: Endgame Updates: During Avengers: Endgame’s climate battle sequence, Thanos challenges Kratos of God of War in the new fan art (minus the gauntlet).

Avengers: Art from the end-game imagines Thanos contending with God of War Kratos during the climate struggle in the film. For nearly a decade, Thanos terrorized Earth’s Mightiest Heroes.

The supervillain is responsible for some of the lowest points in the career of the Avengers, including the end of the Avengers: Infinity War when he was able to eliminate half of the universe’s life.

Kratos himself, both Greek and Norse, is known for terrorizing the gods. The God of War for Playstation 2 was introduced by Kratos in 2005.

As he sought vengeance against Ares for tricking him into killing his family, the game followed Kratos. The game produced several successful sequels, including the reboot of God of War in 2018 and its upcoming sequel that sees Kratos trading Greek gods for Norse While many gods have been killed by Kratos, there is one that he has not faced yet. While technically not a god, Thanos is about as close as Marvel gets to all these powerful beings, especially when he has the Gauntlet of Infinity.

Avengers: Endgame Thanos and Kratos Face to Face

The modern art of Apex Form imagines both meetings with each other. During Avengers, the art seems to be in the middle of the wreckage: Endgame’s final battle after Thanos’ ship blasts into the present and destroys the home base of the Avengers.

Thanos does not wear his Infinity Gauntlet, but he wields his double-edged sword, the one that destroyed the shield of Captain America.

For any fan of both, imagining Kratos and Thanos facing off is exciting. Kratos proved adept at killing the most powerful of enemies, and God of War III saw Kratos climb Mount Olympus to kill Zeus himself.

It’s safe to say he’s more than able to take Thanos on. If he’s going to win or not is up in the air. Though Kratos is solid, he has faced some very harsh beatdowns. For the in-game version of the Infinity Gauntlet, the only way he could properly face Thanos was.

Without that, however, Kratos’ odds may be slim. Even before he assembled the Infinity Gauntlet, Thanos was pretty solid. His superhuman strength and endurance, combined with toughness and ruthlessness, are a great matchup for Kratos.

In reality, Thanos’ and Kratos’ respective powers are very close. If bets were made, however, it’s fair to assume that, after the ending of Avengers: Endgame, wherein Thanos squared off against Captain America, Thor, and Iron Man all at once, Thanos will definitely have the upper hand against Kratos.
