A prominent member and antagonist who captures our attention in the American Marvel Comics is Ebony Maw.

Maw works for Thanos as part of Black Order, a team consisting of aliens. He is not a fighter but is an influential thinker.  

Thanos, the most powerful and dangerous of all the villains in the Marvell series, is the father of Ebony Maw. Thanos works with a team of loyal followers to execute his commands.  He also adopted six children, including Ebony Maw, and trained them to become powerful warriors.  While Mephisto is the strongest among his entire crew, Ebony Maw is the strongest among all his children. He is strong owing to his high intellect and persuasive abilities, due to which he can lead people and get his task done by them.  He is also good at formulating a strategy and executing it.

Ebony Maw possessed telekinetic powers, through which he could move distant objects without physical touch. His enormous mental capabilities leave us wondering how he could die so easily. It was alien technology that killed him as he got blasted from an alien spaceship that travels from Earth to Titan. Does he deserve to lose his life so easily? His extraordinary powers are too great to let him live long. The audience holds mixed views on this topic. Proxima Midnight, Corvus Glaive, and Cull Obsidian are other children of Thanos who finally meet their end as well.

Here is a list of some exciting quotes from Ebony Maw that you would like to recall. If you are interested in similar quotes, please also check our other articles on 'Avengers' quotes and Tony Stark quotes.
