Infinity War “The Comic” is a little different from Infinity War “The Movie.”
There are lots of evil doppelgangers, Adam Warlock is the most important character, and the infinity gems aren’t working together (due to a previously established court ruling).
Galactus also shows up long enough to make a real boneheaded move. Nice going, Galactus.
Next Time: Dr. Doom steals the Silver Surfer’s powers in Fantastic Four 57-60, by Stan Lee & Jack Kirby!
We’re heading back out to space!
As the Marvel Cinematic Universe keeps building towards Infinity War, we’re doing the same with all of Jim Starlin’s Infinity books and this time it’s the Infinity Gauntlet, a 6-issue miniseries and one of Marvel’s best event comics of all time.
Spoiler Alert: Thanos kills everybody.
Next Time: Amazing Spider-Man 298-300 – The Birth of Venom!
Thanos! He’s a big purple dude that keeps showing up in the Marvel movies… but why is everyone always freaking out about him?
Since he’s gonna be the big bad in the next Avengers movie, we figured we’d get some backstory by reading the 1990 comics where he became a major player. And it all started with his resurrection in Silver Surver 34-38, followed by his hunt for the Infinity Gems in Thanos Quest 1-2.
Writer Jim Starlin takes us into the world of Marvel’s cosmic galaxy that he helped form, and artist Ron Lim gives us some breath-taking psychedelic images.
What a team!
