I haven't seen moves for these two posted yet, so here they are. By
the way, thanks for posting the codes to get the bosses, who ever you
were :)

These are probably obvious, but here's a quick move key anyway:

KEY:	LP = Light Punch	LK = Light Kick		HCF = Half Circle Forward	
	MP = Middle Punch	MK = Middle Kick	HCB = Half Circle Backward
	FP = Fierce Punch	HK = Heavy Kick

Photon Charge: HCB + P (ground and air)
Energy Beam: HCF + P (ground and air)
Molecular Shield: HCB + K
Flight: HCB + KKK

Super:	Photon Array: HCF + PPP (ground and air)

-- Press HK in the air and Dr. Doom will do a dive kick. He bounces 
   away after it hits, so you can't combo afterwards. However, you
   can tack on an air energy beam or photon charge.

-- Press FP in the air and Dr. Doom will shoot his pop-gun (that's 
   what we used to call it in the arcade.) It hits multi-times and 
   does pretty good damage for just using one button. However,
   I can't seem to use it in an air combo. They always fall before it
   hits :(

-- Dr. Doom's pop-ups are standing MK and crouching FP. Standing
   MP seems like it should be a pop up, but I can't seem to follow up
   with an air combo afterwards. Maybe it's just an anti-air defense. 

Dash: HCF + P (not sure what to call it, a move like charging stars)
Bubble: HCF + K (Thanos throws a bubble that stuns the opponent)
Flames: D+HK (Flames shoot across the ground for multi hits)
Rock Wave: D + FP (Waves of rocks shoot across the screen)

Supers: 	 Essentially, Thanos has 6 supers. I guess since he posses 
	 gauntlet, he can use the gems all the time. His supers are
	 similar to SFA supers, with a double backwards fireball
	 motion and one button. For example, his soul gem super
	 would be HCBx2 + MK. Anyway, here's a listing of his supers:

	Reality: HCBx2 + LP
	Space: HCBx2 + MP
	Power: HCBx2 + FP
	Time: HCBx2 + LK
	Soul: HCBx2 + MK
	Mind: HCBx2 + HK

	You do not have to have these gems to perform a super. They can be 
	done at any time, as long as your meter is powered up :)

	He can also use the gems just like everyone else, with HCB + PPP. 
-- Thanos' pop-up is crouching MP
-- Press D+HK in the air for a dive kick (well, it's more of a diving


I'm sure all of you have figure these out by now anyway, but I thought
I could try to help :) I did have trouble finding out how to use
Thanos' supers at first. Anyway, enjoy!!

A few more things while I'm here. I think Anita can be used as well.
She's the woman that hugs Thanos in his victory pose (I think.) I
remember seeing codes to use these three in the arcade version. I
persuaded the arcade manager to let me try them one day (the game had
to be in freeplay mode), but they didn't work :( 

If there are more moves for these two, or if anyone knows the Anita
code (if it exits), please post it! :)
