Thanos

Going to bed hungry. Scrounging for scraps. Your planet was on the brink of collapse. I was the one who stopped that. You know what’s happened since then? The children born have known nothing but full bellies and clear skies. It’s a paradise.

I finally rest, and watch the sun rise on a grateful universe. The hardest choices require the strongest wills.

In my heart, I knew you still cared. But one ever knows for sure. Reality is often disappointing.

Today, I lost more than you can know. But now is no time to mourn. Now is no time at all.

I would death to imprisonment! Pride: my one fatal flaw

I ignored my destiny once, I can not do that again. Even for you. I’m sorry, little one.

Fine. I’ll do it myself.

The universe required correction. After that, the stones served no purpose beyond temptation.

With all six stones, I can simply snap my fingers, they would all cease to exist. I call that mercy.

You should choose your words more carefully.
