Thanos II#8 (fb)) - Though their planet was small, the indigenous people of Flivok-6 were a warlike race, and the planet was home to one of the largest standing armies in that part of the galaxy.

(Thanos II#8 (fb) - BTS) - The small planet of Flivok-6 was the last holdout in the Black Quadrant, the domain of Thanos and his army of mercenaries, soldiers, and warmongers. flivok-6-blackquadrant-fromspace-exploding

(Thanos II#8 (fb) - BTS) - In Thanos' absence, Corvus Glave took control of the Black Quadrant, but he held off on attacking Flivok-6, fearing his army would suffer huge losses for little gain. 

(Thanos II#8 (fb) - BTS) - Upon returning to the Black Quadrant, Thanos intended to take action where Corvus had hesitated. However, Thanos became ill and was unable to follow out these plans.

    Believing that they would be spared, the people of Flivok-6 were preparing to celebrate with a military parade.

(Thanos II#8 (fb)) <The day before the main story> - Instead, the Phoenix Force-possessing Thane, son of Thanos, came to Flivok-6.

    Their massive army was unable to defend themselves against this cosmically-powerful assault.

    Thane incinerated the people before shattering the planet.

Comments: Created by Jeff Lemiere and Mike Deodato Jr.

    The debris left behind by the destruction of Tarsis may have spread out to become an asteroid field orbiting the star that Tarsis had once orbited. Eventually, after thousands or millions of years, some (or much) of that debris might be pulled together by their mutual gravitational attractions to form another planet. Or not.
