** Clearly Thanos isn't unkillable, since he was, you know, killed. And as for DidYouJustRomanceCthulhu... In the 616 universe at least Thanos' love affair with Death is fairly one-sided, Death doesn't really seem to respond to Thanos' emotions. We don't know for sure if it was the same way in the Cancerverse, but since that universe and the 616 universe apparently were similar up until the point where Captain Marvel was dying, there's no reason to think their relationship was any different.

** Considering that Thanos is a now-[[CompleteImmortality immortal/-unkillable]] PhysicalGod, not really. As for the why, well... DidYouJustRomanceCthulhu comes to mind.

** It was not enough just to kill Mar-Vell, because even if he died, his bosses and the whole Cancerverse would still exist and would still threaten to invade our universe. As was explicitly explained in the comic, in order to make the beings in the Cancerverse mortal again, Mar-Vell, the avatar of Life, needed to be killed in the same ritual place where had killed the avatar of Life. That's why Death waited until the moment Mar-Vell was there to get him.

* If conquering Death is as easy as killing her avatar in a ritual, why does she even choose to have such an avatar? Doesn't that make her incredibly vulnerable?

* Why, to get Death close enough to Mar Vell, did Thanos have to be killed in that ritual place. Wouldn't Death have been summoned the moment Mar Vell killed anyone in the regular universe?

** Presumably, Thanos did exist, and was the avatar of Death. And was killed by Mar Vell, as a part of the Necroscopy, to kill death.

* How did the Scarlet Witch hold off the Man-angled ones when the other magic users couldn't? Weren't all the Avengers turned at once? ** It seems to be less a question of power, and more a question of choice. Keep in mind that all of this happened because they couldn't accept someone they cared for dying, so they made a deal with the devil. Scarlet Witch didn't want to make that deal, but pretended to go along with it.

Adding some potential responses to headscratchers.
** It would appear that causing death is not enough- Mar Vell had to get close to Thanos, and in that place where Death was first killed, try to kill her again- Bringing himself extremely close to Death once again, but this time, with Death fore-warned about what was going to happen, so she could strike first. As Thanos says, he cheated death, and nobody does that twice- So yeah.

** Presumably, Thanos did exist, and was the avatar of Death. And was killed by Mar Vell, as a part of the Necroscopy, to kill death.

** Presumably, the Many-angled ones can't grow infinitely in a realm where they can die.

** The Many-Angled Ones had a greater influence on the proto-Cancerverse, and we're able to influence Mar-Vell and the Avengers into performing a series of dark rituals that culminated in the death of...Death.
