Is Thanos the Guardian of one of the Infinity Stones?
We know what Thanos did after he acquired all the Infinity Stones. But did you know Adam Warlock made Thanos a guardian of an Infinity Stone?
After the Infinity Gauntlet, Adam Warlock divided the stones into a team called the Infinity Watch. The Space Stone was given to Pip The Troll. It allowed him to control the laws of space. Moon Dragon was given the Mind Stone. It helped in enhancing her psychic abilities even more powerful. Drax the Destroyer received the Power Stone. Warlock told him he was already power personified. Gamora got the Time Gem.
In Warlock Chronicles #2 by Jim Starlin, Tom Raney, Keith Williams, and Jack Morelli, Warlock confronts Eternity. He questioned why he gave the Infinity Stones to the separate members of the Infinity Watch. Eternity tells Warlock that his choice is unacceptable. He further blames Warlock for making a poor decision. Warlock assured him that he understands what choice he has made. He then decided to pass through a disruption in reality. There he found The Mad Titan, Thanos. Warlock includes Thanos as a secret member of the Infinity Watch. Thanos ended up assisting him in defeating the Magus. Thanos successfully managed to keep the Reality Stone away from all kinds of threats.
Even though Thanos later used the power of the Infinity Stones, he managed to remain a secret member of the Infinity Watch. Now it is doubtful if Warlock would make the same decision ever again.
