Infinity, the six part blockbuster comic event of the summer, brought to you by the star studded creative team of Jonathan Hickman, Jim Cheung, Jerome Opena & Dustin Weaver, takes fans to every corner of the Marvel Universe, and beyond! Earth has been marked as an “Avengers World”, protected by Iron Man, Captain America, Thor and more from the deadliest threats facing humanity. A powerful and destructive race is on a collision course with Earth and the only thing in their path is the Avengers! But even Earth’s Mightiest Heroes realize the one hope of defeating this dire threat is to unite every great hero across the cosmos…because only with a united Avengers Universe is there any chance of survival!
With our heroes at the other end of the universe, who is left to protect Earth? Enter Thanos, the galaxy’s most ruthless threat and an unparalleled force of brutality who brings order to the chaos of life through murder. The greatest threat to the Mad Titan’s work—and perhaps the universe’s greatest hope—is something he created leaving no world safe. Earth’s last hope may lie in the hands of a man who can level cities with a single whisper – Black Bolt, king of the Inhumans. But can the fearsome leader of a race hated and feared by his world, lead his people against Thanos? If they fall, so does the Earth—and the entire universe with it.
The Biggest Heroes. The Biggest Threats. The Biggest Sacrifices. This is Marvel’s INFINITY.
Tired of comic book events? Well suck it nerds because Marvel is throwing another one at you. Coming off the heels of the much maligned Age of Ultron is Marvel’s event of the summer, Infinity. This six-issue event will be written by Jonathan Hickman with the art of Jim Cheung, Jerome Opena and Dustin Weaver and is set to being in August.
Many readers have sworn off event books after the debacle that was Age of Ultron. Are you one of those readers? Are Thanos, Guardians of the Galaxy, and the Inhumans enough of a reason to give this a shot? This will have its fair share of tie-ins as it will span over the all the Avengers books, Captain Marvel, Guardians of the Galaxy, Fearless Defenders, Nova, Thunderbolts, and Superior Spider-Man Team –Up (this just in…there is a comic book out called Superior Spider-Man Team-Up).
Here’s hoping that this will be the palate cleanser we all need after Age of Ultron.
