Thanatos is a Canadian Real Life Superhero in Vancouver, British Columbia. He is retired.
Thanatos became a RLSH after a Vancouver police officer said that the homeless people in the city have nothing to look forward to except Death itself. He was then inspired to create a superhero identity for himself, based on the Greek personification of Death itself, Thanatos, and began handing out basic necessities to homeless people, such as sheets, blankets, and jars of food.
Public attention was given to Thanatos and other Canadian RLSH with exposure from the Real Life Super Hero Project and its website. In 2012, he was featured in the french documentary "Deviens Un Super Heros Pour De Vrai".
