If youâ€™ve been reading Jonathan Hickmanâ€™s books in the Marvel U lately, including The Avengers, everything seems to be getting more and more cosmic. This all has to be a lead-up to the next big thing from the House of Ideas called Infinity!
Infinity is a six-part summer event being crafted by Jonathan Hickman, Jim Cheung, Jerome Opena, and Dustin Weaver.
Check out the covers for Infinity: Part 1 here below.
Here is Marvelâ€™s official synopsis of the upcoming story:
Earth has been marked as an â€œAvengers Worldâ€, 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 Earthâ€™s Mightiest Heroes realize the one hope of defeating this dire threat is to unite every great hero across the cosmosâ€¦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 galaxyâ€™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 Titanâ€™s workâ€”and perhaps the universeâ€™s greatest hopeâ€”is something he created leaving no world safe. Earthâ€™s last hope may lie in the hands of a man who can level cities with a single whisper â€“ 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 Earthâ€”and the entire universe with it.
So The Avengers are moving further and further into space already and thereâ€™s a new Guardians of the Galaxy series starting, and the untold origin story of Thanos now on shelves physically and digitally, so the ground for this adventure is already being seeded. The six-issue story is set to begin in August and we already have the covers for issue #1! The main cover has been crafted by Adam Kubert and there will be a variant from Arthur Adams.
