    Thanos FAQ
    Marvel Super Heroes
    for Saturn and PSX

    Well here is my first attempt at writing a Faq; I am devoting it to one
    of my favorite MSH characters.  So if any of you more experenced writers
    wanna help a fellow gamer on his way to stardom I would gladly accept
    any words of praise or criticism.  Thanks and onto the good stuff.
    Oh by the way Thanos has SIX super moves one corrisponding to each Gem.
    
    How to get Thanos :
    
    PSX and Saturn :  To access Thanos you must Finnish the game and have
    it saved to memory.  Then with the short cut option off start a game
    as usual.  For the First player it will be on Spider-man and the Second
    player your cursor will be on Captain America so press up once and
    then hold up quickly press and hold the Strong Punch and while holding
    press the Medium Punch and finally while holding those two press the
    Light Punch button.  If you did it right Thanos will apear in the player
    selection box.  You might want to reset and play at turbo seeing as
    when you do the code it picks normal speed. So when the fight starts
    just pause it and quit and go to the options and this would be a good
    time to save him to your memory, and he will show up in the regular
    player select screen if you turned the Sort Cut on again.  Enjoy !!
    
    Stuff Thanos Says:
    
    Taunt:  Thanos Reigns !!
    Dialog at the end: Thanos says " You created me to test you, now I'll
    give you the death you deserve ! "
    
    Moves:
    
    Fire Stomp    Down  +  Strong Kick
    Power Knee    Down   + Strong Kick  (  in the air  )
    Bubble Hold   QCF + any kick
    Stone Wave    Down  +  Strong Punch
    Spear Slide   HCF  +   any punch
    Rock  Throw   Strong  Kick
    
    Air Combo Launcher: Crouching Medium Punch
    
    Infinity Counter :  Spear Slide 
    	Note:  as with all infinity counters be careful when you use it!
    
    Supers :
    All of his supers are done with a backwards dragon punch movement
    and ONE button.
    
    Light Punch   - Reality Gem :  Two pillars of stone come up from the
            ground and slide together to squish you.
    
    Medium Punch  - Space  Gem  :  Thanos pulls rocks up from the ground
            into a portal above himself and then releases them from
            another portal that appears above or around you.
    
    Strong Punch  - Power  Gem  :  Thanos releases a big ball and throws
            it in your direction, it dosent just go stright it then moves
            diagonaly  upwards  back towards thanos so when playing
            against him be careful.
    
    Light Kick    -  Time Gem :  opponent is slowed down.
    
    Medium Kick   -  Soul Gem  :  Thanos steals some of your energy
            and gains life power.
    
    Strong Kick   -  Mind  Gem  :  Your opponents controls will be reversed
            for a short period of time.
    
            
    Combos :
    
    Ground:
       Dash in with medium punch ,follow with Spear Slide. 3 hits small 
    damage
                     
       Dash in with a strong kick and let the first part of it hit and then 
    do a 
       Spear Slide. 2 hits medium damage 
    
       Dash in with a strong kick and 2 in 1 into a Soul Gem super. Its 
    awesome!
       Not only does it hurt them, but it heals you !!!    
    
       Also if you can catch them in the corner and the dashing strong kick
       hits you can combo in the Space Gem. I don't know how many hits
       but its devastating.
    
    AIR:
       Dash in with a crouching light kick and hit medium punch to launch 
    them,
       then in the air you can do a number of combos like light, medium,
       strong kick; or after launching them light kick medium punch,
       Strong Spear slide;  or  you can interchange the medium punch for
       the medium kick for a slight variation.    4 to 6 hits decent damage
    
    Jumping-in combos:
       You can jump in with a light punch and go into a launcher air combo 
    or
       a ground combo for a little bit of variety.
    
       Jump in with the Power Knee and do a crouching light kick then a 
    medium
       kick into a standing medium punch. 5 hits okay damage
                        
    Tricks you should know:
                                     
       You can combo off the Reality Gem by dashing over and and using your
       launcher. This can give you an added bonus of 3 to 5 hits as well as
       the Gems damage. This dosent work on all the characters but for most
       it seems to be a neat way of flexing your skills.
    
       Thanos dosent need any Gems to do any of his supers so don't wait
       for them.
    
       There might be an infinte combo after the Reality Gem from the corner
       but you have to use the Power Knee to beat them to the ground and 
    does
       not always work.
    
       Hey also if you do the Spear Slide air combo and they fall towards
       you try to hit them again for more in your face fun, it works well
       on the bigger characters.
       
       Please don't use the Mind Gem on the computer cause it knows how to
       play backwards. Cheater !!!
