      Thanos has been glib quite often in the past. It's one of the best aspects of his character that Starlin gave him.

    Can you name even one of those times? Because I just went through Infinity Gauntlet, War and Crusade on my iPad and I didn't see a single example of that. In fact, as I stated above, Starlin made a point of highlighting Thanos' humorless nature at the end of Infinity War (when he snaps Pip's cigar in two).

Thinking about it, "glib" really isn't the right word.

There's dark humour all throughout that. How can that escape you?

      Wouldn't be the first time. Thanos up to his old tricks.

    Really? Thanos has, as a villain, tried to do the following things...

    Destroy the Universe
    Destroy the Universe
    Kill half the Universe
    Help Annihilus Destroy the Universe
    Help Death Destroy an Alternate Universe

    So No, creating a new world isn't Thanos "up to his old tricks".

You missed the times where he restarted the universe. You have very selective memmory, it seems. To be honest, Annihilation was more out of character, because Thanos had gotten past that.

Annihilation wasn't out of character at all, he wasn't really helping Annihilus at all during it. He was curious about what Big A was doing and decided to be an active observer on A's side. One he discovered A's Universal Omnicide plan Thanos was about to save the day when Drax almost ruined everything.
