The evil THANOS has acquired the Infinity Gems, granting him control over the entire universe. He’s destroyed half the population of all worlds. The only force standing in his way? THE AVENGERS! But how can a ragtag group of heroes and villains (!) overpower the unstoppable?

Check out the non-stop, pulse-pounding, white-knuckling action brought to you by Brian Clevinger (Atomic Robo) and Brian Churilla (Rex Mundi, The Anchor)!

  1. Love the creative team on this book so I’m definitely giving this a shot.  Atomic Robo has been one of my favorites and Churilla has been awesome on The Anchor and The Engineer: Konstrukt.

  2. So does this operate outside of the Thanos Imperative… or has this ruined the next few issues of that event?

  3. My guess is that this is outside of continuity, just a fun mini-series.

  4. @TexasZombie99-I am not sure if it is out of continuity or just a rehash/recreation of 1991’s (??) Infinity Gauntlet.  Because that is the exact same plot from that mini.

  5. @All: MisterJ is correct.

  6. Conor, what’s he correct about?  Is this sort of a parallel story to "Infinity Gauntlet"?

  7. @JonSamuelson: It’s a return to the original story. Whether it’s a rehash or what, it’s not related to what’s currently going on in the cosmic corner of the Marvel Universe.

    Not sure why they’re redoing this, but there you go…

  8. Sorry I saw the convo and I think I know what the point of this mini is.

    The last time they did this was ‘Spider-Man and the Secret Wars’. Basically it’s just focusing on a character (or for this series, characters) during a huge event. For Spider-Man, they showed more on him getting the Black Suit, being with Captain America, and then fighting Doom.

    Not sure what the focus of this series is but that’s basically the point of the mini. Hope that helps! 

  9. I don’t know much about the Infinity Gauntlet but after the comic con prop and all the excitement it caused I’m inclined to check it out. I also just can’t get enough of Avengers books.

  10. Mayhaps Marvel intends to have recent trades and hardcovers on the shelves of self-contained stories that use the villain of the Avengers movie when in comes out?

  11. I was going to get this anyway, but the preview sealed the deal. The Super-Adaptoid firing a fascimile of Mjolnir with a bow was just too awesome to pass up.

    And the point of the story is just to create a retelling for a younger audience. Clevinger has stated that aside from the basic concept, its plot will be completely different from the original.

  12. Maybe Clevinger can make something unique and interesting out of it, but I’ve got to say…  This seems like a really lame idea.  The last thing we need is for comic books to take a cue from movies and start remaking popular stories ad nauseum rather than focusing on making new things.

  13. I thought that this was part of the Marvel Adventures line, so I assume that this was just a retelling of the story for a younger audience. either way, I’m picking it up regardless, because at this point anything with Clevinger’s name on it I’m getting.

  14. This is a younger readers title in the vain of Thor: The Mighty Avenger. Heard about it on Chris Sims War Rocket Ajax podcast with their interview with Clevinger. Pretty fun stuff, just not for my $$ these days.

  15. I was very surprised by this issue. Didn’t go in expecting much but its actually a lot of fun. I laughed out loud reading this more than I can remember in a long time. There is tons of Marvel U humor and just an over really fun time with all of our favorite characters.
