Thanos decimated Proxima Midnight’s home planet during her childhood, and took her into his fold, raising her to be a loyal follower and cold-hearted assassin. Throughout Infinity War, she reveals superhuman power, rampant psychopathic nature, and mastery of combat as she embroils herself in a face-off against the Avengers on Earth. Proxima is a product of her nurture. Like going to a café is normal for us, her childhood taught her that killing is like just another Tuesday. There is a good justification behind the way Proxima Midnight is.
