After that ending of Avengers: Infinity War, we all need some form of comfort — at least something until the release of Avengers 4 next year. We just didn't know it would be from the Canadian police (and a fan with a lot of free time, apparently).
Marvel's strongest superheroes weren't able to stop intergalactic supervillain Thanos, but on an otherwise placid Friday afternoon, he met his match with the local authorities in Toronto.
42-year-old Frank Coraci dressed up as the Infinity War baddie and appeared in public as a way to mend hurt and tension after a recent terror attack on the city's streets, and it certainly helped.
Even the local police were amused and Sgt. Noel DeGuzman worked with Coraci to put up a scene for the crowd, "arresting" Thanos — but not without taking a photo for his daughter.
"What started as good-hearted banter between two Marvel fans and subsequently a photo for my daughter, apparently exploded onto social media," DeGuzman told The Star. "I am thankful that it put a smile on many people's faces."

Photos taken from the scene quickly became viral, and found its way on Reddit, where one user even pointed out that it's strangely similar to a moment in the comics.
At least there's some closure here, but we'll have to wait until May 2019 to see what becomes of Thanos and the remaining Avengers onscreen.
