When our Thanos met him, he started a fight with old Thanos because he thought he was nothing but a pretender. But the fight eventually stops when King Thanos confirmed his identity by speaking the actual Thanos’s name that his only mother- Sul-San was going to give him before she was going insane.

In the Greek mythology, the meaning of Thanos is related to the name of the Greek god of death Thanatos. Similarly, Dione also has some mythological background. Dione was an ancient Greek goddess who also known by oracular Titaness, the mythological Dione was wife to Zeus and mother of Aphrodite. Meaning of Dione also derived from Dionysius, the Greek god of wine
