Thanos may be on course to become the most feared villain in all of the MCU, but that doesn't stop the Internet from making fun of him behind his back. Since the action-packed Avengers: Infinity War trailer dropped, many on social media have been comparing the Mad Titan's appearance to other well-recognizable characters and meme in pop culture.

There's Homer Simpson, Salt Bae, and Rich from Pawn Stars. There's also the small issue of the color of his face having changed across several Marvel movies. Move over, porgs, there's a new viral sensation in town and he's going to destroy everything you hold dear. Or die (laughing) trying.

Even the actor bringing him to life, Josh Brolin, is afraid of the character in his own special way. "I was more nervous doing that than I've been for a long time," he told Cinema Blend. "I was more nervous doing that than anything I've done in a long time. I was sitting in front of 32 cameras and my face was sprayed with iridescent paint and all that. It was very, very different, but I like it. It's fun. It's different."

But after seeing Thanos kick the bejeezus out of Iron Man, Vision, and Spider-Man like they were made of paper mache in the trailer, we all need a little comic relief. Infinity Stones left you by your grandfather, eh? Best I can do is $50 bucks. Wait, make that $30. 

What do you think of these memes? Let us know who you think Thanos looks like in the comments below.
