Thanos has always been a pretty big name for fans of comic books, but the character wasn't quite mainstream — not like Robert Downey Jr.'s Tony Stark or Chris Evans' Captain America — until this year's Avengers: Infinity War debuted in theaters.

The species — which is called the Thanos simonattoi —was a carnivorous dinosaur that resided in Brazil during the later part of Cretaceous Period around 145 million years ago.
