Infinity War And Thanos’ Black Order- More Evil Than You Think

Thanos’ lieutenants, The Black Order are about to make their big debut in Avengers: Infinity War.

They are a group of generals sent by Thanos to recover the Infinity Gems. Here’s a little more about them in detail below.

The first appearance was in the Infinity series. They are a collection of super badasses, sent to Earth to find the Infinity Gems and his illegitimate son Thane. In the process, they decimated the forces remaining on Earth.

They are also known as the Cull Obsidian in the comic books, while in the film, they are referred to as the Children of Thanos.

Corvus Glaive

Glaive is the leader of the Black Order and Thanos’ most trusted general. He is a cruel, vicious being with enhanced strength, speed, agility and endurance. He is married to Proxima Midnight and is a brother to Black Dwarf.

Glaive was sent to Earth to find Thane in the Infinity series and was nearly destroyed at the end of the miniseries. He was eventually freed and became part of Thanos’s Cabal, destroying worlds to protect the 616 from Incursions.

Proxima Midnight

Proxima Midnight is the wife of Corves Glaive. She possesses the same powers as her husband, but her spear can turn to light, and it almost never misses its target.

She survived the end of Infinity with Thanos and Glaive and joined them in the Cabal, where they destroyed worlds until they escaped to Battleworld, where she was killed by Thor.

Black Dwarf

Black Dwarf is the brother of Corvus Glaive. He is functionally invulnerable with unbreakable skin but was defeated while trying to invade Wakanda. As punishment for his failure, was expelled from the Order and sent to capture The Peak, S.W.O.R.D.’s orbiting base, whose mission he also failed at.

He was also resurrected for “No Surrender”.

Ebony Maw

Ebony Maw has the ability to manipulate anyone and anything into doing what he wants.

He convinced Thane to wear a containment suit to block his powers, then summoned Thanos and the rest of the Order. He later decided to see what would happen to Thane, so he convinced him to freeze the remainder of the Order in amber.
