Children of Thanos: Interesting Facts about Marvel’s Black Order

There is an elite group under Thanos known as the Black Order. Who are they? Are they strong? Can they easily beat the Avengers?

If Nicholas Joseph “Nick” Fury, a world-renowned spy and former director of S.H.I.E.L.D., had founded the Avengers team that will protect the human race, Thanos has Black Order that will bring chaos.

What is Black Order?

The Black Order is an elite group with the most wicked, powerful, and subservient beings that Thanos founded. They are even classified as Thanos’ Children and known as the supervillains.

The Black Order has three main goals:

  1. To suppress and subdue resistance on any planet that Thanos wants to conquer.
  2. To find Thanos’ biological son, Thane.
  3. To locate the Infinity Stones.

The members of the Black Order will act as the advanced tactical team on every mission, paving the way before Thanos’ arrival. Each member is unique, but everyone can cause chaos and destruction.

Who are the members of the Black Order?

Corvus Glaive

Corvus Glaive is considered the leader of the Black Order. He is always draped in black robes and has pale skin and sharp teeth. He is a competent melee fighter, using a unique glaive. His weapon, the glaive, can slice through the atom and give him immortality. He is cruel, arrogant, and sadist.

Proxima Midnight

Proxima Midnight, the sole female member of the Black Order, is the cruelest but the most measured and diplomatic member of the team. She has blue skin, has a human-like appearance, and always wears a goofy pronged helmet.

Proxima uses a powerful artifact, a spear. Forged by Thanos, the spear contains the energy of an exploding star. Additionally, Proxima and her husband, Corvus Glaive, are considered powerful combat teams.

Cull Obsidian

Known as the Black Dwarf, Cull Obsidian is a rocky and thick being that resembles the Thing from the Fantastic Four. However, despite his appearance, he is calm and focused. He fights according to the warrior’s code of honor but goes berserker rage during battle. And when he did the task of invading Wakanda but got defeated, he faced it with humility and accepted the full blame before Thanos – a not-so supervillain would act. Even so, he is considered as one of the strongest supervillains of the Marvel verse.

Ebony Maw

Ebony Maw is the most mysterious and most successful member of the Black Order.

Maw is called the “telepath” of the Black Order. Although his true powers and capabilities remain a mystery, it appears that Maw can manipulate his victim through shadowy whispers and subtle coercion. Maw mentally manipulated Thane, Thanos’ biological secret Inhuman-hybrid son, in becoming his ally as he guides him to become eviler than his father Thanos.

Additional Facts

Gamora and Nebula were two of the six adopted children of Thanos both were also trained for combat, making them as deadly weapons. However, it wasn’t clear if the two were part of the Black Order. On the contrary, if you’ll consider the missions that Gamora and Nebula had accomplished or failed, you may regard it as they were part of the team until they parted ways against Thanos.

What causes stress when you are at work?

There are several stressors at work; anything that puts you mentally, emotionally, and physically under pressure. Here are 5 common causes of stress at work that can affect your productivity:

#1: Workloads

Both high and low workloads can make you feel under stress, especially when you do not know how to manage your schedule well.

High workloads can be overwhelming. The excessive amount of work can make you feel less motivated, resulting in procrastination. Thus, when the work reaches a deadline, the feeling of being rushed can mentally strain you, causing you to feel overworked.

Low workloads, on the other hand, can make you feel your skills are underused. Also, it makes you feel less secure in the role you have at work.

So, how should you overcome this?

Try managing your work well and balance your everyday schedule. Reach attainable goals.

#2: Unable to control work activities

The inability to control work activities is another contributing factor to work stress and pressure. While it is common, several people are still suffering from its consequences every day, especially when working in a competitive industry, where overwork becomes prominent.

If you want to escape the feeling of being overworked, do not let your work activities control you; instead, control it. How? Proper time management is the answer. Commit to a workload that is attainable.

#3: Poor working environment

Your working environment can either motivate or demotivate you; it is one of the working elements that contribute to the employees’ productivity. For instance, if you have a working space that is excessively hot or cold, noisy, has poor lighting, uncomfortable working furniture, or faulty working equipment, it will make you feel under stress and demotivated to work.

If you are working in a poorly designed working environment, it is time to raise the issue to the management. However, if you are working at home, you need to reorganize your working space and make it more inviting and employee-friendly.

#4: Inability to adapt to change

Say your office started a new policy, or everyone needs to use a new system for the company growth, but you are having a hard time adapting; these changes may put you under pressure.

The ability to adapt to changes is essential in every type of work. If you are one of the countless people having a hard time adjusting to changes, you need to take things slowly. While you are still trying to adapt to changes, try to commit to work that is attainable.

Overcoming the stress of adapting to changes may be hard, but you need to learn to manage your stress level to maintain or increase positive productivity.

#5: Having no support

A company that does not appreciate the employees’ hard work can trigger your stress. If you are working hard but feel unappreciated, it is time to break free and leave the company. Look for a company that values its employees because your mental health is essential than money.
