Corvus Glaive is the leader of an elite group of alien beings gathered together by Thanos called the Black Order. He serves as the right-hand man of the Mad Titan himself. With his legendary namesake blade, Corvus’s ultimate goal is to acquire the Infinity Stones and return them to Thanos to reform the Infinity Gauntlet.
Lieutenant of Thanos
Corvus Glaive was one of a small cadre of ruthless warriors recruited directly by Thanos to do his bidding. Dubbed the Black Order, most are members of the same family: Corvus, his wife Proxima Midnight, and his brother Black Dwarf.
Glaive was named the chief lieutenant of Thanos, and early on, he forced planets subjugated by his master to offer tribute to the Mad Titan. Corvus’ first mission on Earth was to search for Thanos’ wayward son, Thane, as a first step toward conquering the planet.
