Through his intermediary, the Other, Thanos was approached by Loki, adopted son of Odin of Asgard, to arrange a deal. Thanos offered Loki the command over the Chitauri army, in return for the Tesseract, one of the galaxy's most powerful artifacts. Loki secured the Tesseract on Earth, with which he opened a portal to the Chitauri homeworld and unleashed the Chitauri army upon New York City. Ultimately, Loki and the Chitauri were overwhelmed by the Avengers, and both the Tesseract and the Chitauri were lost to Thanos.
