Donny Cates is one of the creative minds behind Thanos #13-18 or the Thanos Wins series that started back in 2017. His writing style is also featured on 2018’s Thanos Annual issue, which helped to set the stage for Cosmic Ghost Rider, which came out this year as well. With all of that out of the way, if you haven’t checked out any of those titles be sure to do your homework because Cates’ writing is about to help things come back full circle for the Mad Titan.
In Thanos Wins we watched the Mad Titan destroy basically all life in the universe with a few exceptions like The Hulk, Cosmic Ghost Rider, and a few other pesky beings that were just a little too tough to kill even for him. This is why he as a much older Thanos sent Frank Castle, AKA Cosmic Ghost Rider, out into the universe with a chunk of the Time Stone to help retrieve the younger version of himself to help create more destruction to appease Lady Death.
However, as we all know, there can only be one Thanos, so the two inevitably ended up in a deadly battle to decide who would come out on top with Death’s hand.
But then things took a turn for the interesting.
