    For what it's worth, I tried putting the image through Google Image to see what comes up. It says the button badge depicts an owl.

Adam Warlock, a Marvel Comics character created by Stan Lee and Jack Kirby in Fantastic Four #66 (June, 1967). Probably drawn by Jim Starlin in your image. Starlin redefined the character in his own series Warlock (1970s) and made use of him as one of the main characters in his Infinity Saga series during the 90s. Thanos, created by Starlin, and who you may know from MCU, is considered his arch-villain. As @MartianInvader commented, you can find the MCU version of Warlock in Guardians of the Galaxy vol.3

To be more precise, your badge's image is taken from Strange Tales #180

By the way, apart from using internet, I used "old-school" techniques. Meaning "having a physical copy of those comics". Below you can see the big gallery edition recently published in Spain. :-)

    You mention Thanos is in the MCU, but Adam Warlock is too! Not nearly as prominently, of course, but he plays a reasonably important role in Guardians of the Galaxy 3. Oct 19, 2023 at 23:46
