The Marvel Universe just isn’t catching a break right now. Almost immediately after ‘Age of Ultron’, the next crossover event is gearing up to begin next month and it’s looking to go beyond the Avengers World and encompass the other galaxies out there. But in the upcoming Marvel Comics, ‘Infinity’, we will learn what happens when a mad and mighty villain strikes their home while Earth’s Mightiest Heroes are away.
While we got a sneak peek at what’s to come in ‘Infinity’ on Free Comic Book Day, we can now go a little deeper into what this event will entail as Marvel has released a special teaser trailer for the upcoming six-issue series. You can check it out below, followed by a new description of the story:
‘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.
