Avengers Infinity War has taken the world by storm this week as it rakes in hundreds of millions of dollars in its opening weekend. 

The latest Marvel movie sees our favourite Avengers take on Thanos, the Mad Titan, as he searches for the six infinity stones. 

Infinity War is a MASSIVE movie, featuring more than 70 Marvel characters in its 2 hour 40 min runtime. 

The second most expensive movie of all time features a whole host of A-list actors as they don their superhero costumes to battle for the universe. 

The complicated relationships are a joy to watch, but none more so than the relationship between Thanos and his family - or half family at least. 

As Thanos hunts for the remaining stones, his two daughters, Nebula and Gamora, play a big part in attempting to stop him, and they could play an even bigger part in the MCU in the future.

Throughout the 19 movies in the Marvel Cinematic Universe, Thanos’ arrival has been an ever-looming threat for Earth’s defenders. 

Before Infinity War, much of his backstory was shrouded in mystery, with only small hints being dropped in one or two of the previous films. 

The biggest connections we have previously had was in Guardians of the Galaxy when we were introduced to Thanos’ daughters. 

Gamora was taken from her home planet as a child, seconds before half her people were annihilated by the Mad Titan. Trained to become the most feared warrior in the universe, Thanos favoured Gamora over his second adopted daughter, Nebula.

A Luphomoid assassin, Nebula was also adopted and trained by Thanos, finding friendship and sisterhood with Gamora in the early years of her life. 

Nebula and Gamora would regularly be pitted against each other to test their strengths, with Gamora always coming out on top.

Every time Nebula lost, Thanos would strip away the normal parts of her “upgrading” her with robotic enhancements in order to help her win the next fight, until she became a cybernetic assassin that harbours a fierce hatred for the universe. 

She has superhuman strength, durability and agility thanks to her cybernetic body parts, with the ability to easily fix fatal injuries in an instant.
