Introduction

MvC2thanos.png

The Basics

Thanos needs levels to be effective. You may be able to superjump and Titan Crush around for a while to build a little meter, but that doesn't build much. As such, consider having a battery first, and using Thanos-A to set up great combos.

Fun Stuff

Gauntlet Power glitch

Do the Gauntlet Power super but DHC out before it leaves his hand. It won't leave but will instead stick to him.
