For years Thanos has just been the guy hanging out on the sidelines in the Marvel Cinematic Universe, leaving others to do his dirty work. Next year, Avengers: Infinity War will finally show what the Mad Titan is capable of. It will take the Avengers, Guardians of the Galaxy and more to stop him, and make no mistake, it will be the biggest conflict the MCU has ever seen, potentially extending into Avengers 4. That said, these are superhero tales, and even with the inevitable loss of life, Thanos will be defeat. The question is who will be the one to take him down.

Avengers: Infinity War will be packed with a lot of superheroes, but only a select few of them could successfully kill him. Keeping in mind Thanos' natural abilities, how he may successfully manipulate some or all of the Infinity Stones (hence why we can't include The Vision here) and who's been confirmed for the Marvel blockbuster, here's who we've ranked from least likely to most likely to get the job done, whether due to their power levels or for narrative reasons.

Warning: some spoilers for Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2 are ahead!

Iron Man flying

9. Iron Man

Let me preface this by saying that Tony Stark wouldn't stand a chance going toe to toe with Thanos while wearing one of his typical armored suits. Even without the Infinity Stones, Thanos is one of the strongest beings in the universe, and he could easily rip apart Tony's trademark weapons. The only reason Iron Man is being included on this list is if one of two scenarios happen in Avengers: Infinity War. The first is if during the movie, Tony comes across some kind of alien technology that's able to boost one of his suit's power to levels that couldn't have been reached even using cutting edge Earth technology. The second, and more preferred scenario, is if Tony is somehow able to control one of the Infinity Stones and use its power against Thanos. If neither of those things happen, then chances are extremely slim that Tony will be the one to kill the Mad Titan.
