    Double s doesn't look right for official text

    It’s actually not wrong.

    double S is actually correct. If you're gonna pretend to know what you're talking about, at least know what you're talking about first. If the noun ends with an "s" when its in the singular form, then you still put 's behind it. you change it to just an apostrophe if the noun ending in an "s" is plural.

    If you're going to correct somebody pretending to know what he's talking about, YOU at least be also correct. 'Thanos' is a PROPER noun so proper nouns ending in 's' only get an apostrophe. How do I know? Years of growing up with a name ending in 's'. "Thanos' Army" is the correct term.

    Both methods i.e. s' and s's are acceptable.

    if you're gonna correct somebody correcting somebody about a correction, at least know what you're talking about. It can be either way

    Thanos' Army vs. Thanos's army

    Technically, Double "S" is correct. The apostrophe only comes after an "S" in the event that the word is Plural. There is only one Thanos.

    The Players' statements were correct. ;)
  • If it ends with s only put the apostrophe

    Hi!

    Since Thanos is singular, our style uses the apostrophe and an "s." If Thanos was plural, it would only use the apostrophe.

    But I don't think anyone wants multiple Thanos. That's a scary thought. Or is it Thanoses? Or Thani? Hmm :D

    Thanox,Maybe?

    An actual error would be this. Should say your champions, not you champions.

    Oh come on guys, who cares about the apostrophe s, THAT is a proper mistake ^

    (But still it should be Thanos' Army lol)

    Thanos' = correct
    Thanos's = correct

    The latter is becoming archaic and far less common, but it is still grammatically correct. It is only acceptable for proper names. Any other noun already ending in -s should only get the apostrophe in its possessive form.
  • Also they misspelled #villain says my Blade and Ghost Rider.
