4. Thanos

Thanos

As great as Thanos’ appearance at the end of The Avengers may have been for longtime superhero fans well-versed in comic book lore, pretty much everyone else was left clueless.

It was vital then that Guardians of the Galaxy turn this villain into the threat he should be recognised as by audiences moving forwards in the Marvel Cinematic Universe, and a big part of that comes down to his appearance. With a much more realistic looking costume than the spandex-like effort he dons in the comics, Thanos looked incredible and every bit the imposing menace who should be causing The Avengers more problems in the very near future.

Throw in the fact that the iconic villain now had Josh Brolin’s voice and facial mannerisms, and this was a real winner!
