What did Thanos do with the Heart of the Universe?

With Heart of the Universe, Thanos managed to deconstruct and reconstruct reality.

Still, it’s quite an interesting story, so we’re bound to explain in a bit more detail what led to Thanos acquiring the Heart of the Universe.  

The story begins with an extremely powerful source of power called the Heart of the Universe. This jewel of mysterious and so far unknown origins held vast reality-altering powers and was accidentally discovered by a group of aliens who claimed the jewel and dubbed themselves the “Celestial Order.” The Celestial Order acquired the right to “police” the Universe in order to bring peace to it. They selected important figures throughout the Universe to grant a fraction of Heart’s powers to them so they could rule with an iron fist.

Unfortunately for Earth, the figurehead that was chosen to rule over Earth was an ancient pharaoh called Akhenaten, who got corrupted by the Heart’s powers and instead looked to enslave the Earth and its denizens.

Thanos learns that the Universe is doomed to end soon and cannot be corrected, even with the power of the Heart of the Universe. The Living Tribunal gathers powerful cosmic beings to stop Thanos, but they are unsuccessful because Thanos has become one with everything, including the Living Tribunal. This was due to him absorbing the Heart of the Universe, which made him more powerful than when he wielded the Infinity Gauntlet.
