Marvel Comics Teases New Infinity Gauntlet Series For Summer 2015
If you thought the return of series like Civil War, Planet Hulk, and Armor Wars was enough to make Summer 2015 one of the biggest periods for comic book releases in years, this latest announcement should just about blow your mind....Marvel has just announced that The Infinity Gauntlet is the latest series scheduled for a return to book shelves next summer.
First published in 1991, The Infinity Gauntlet series sees Thanos successfully uniting all six infinity gems before going on to wipe out half of the life in the universe. With the mastery of Time, Space, Mind, Soul, Reality, and Power at his fingertips, Thanos attempts to grab the attentions of the only force greater than his, Death. Across six issues, Thanos successfully wipes out vast numbers of Marvel's heroes and villains including the X-Men, Galactus and the Fantastic Four. However, one person he doesn't defeat is his supposed granddaughter, Nebula. In so many ways, The Infinity Gauntlet is a series of unrivalled scale, which makes this an incredibly exciting prospect.
Comicbook.com has released some teaser artwork for the new series, and to many fans of the original, they'll notice the addition of Star Lord and a group of Nova Corpsmen.
The Infinity Gauntlet is now the seventh series teased for a Summer 2015 release by Marvel, joining Civil War, Age of Ultron vs Marvel Zombies, Years of Future Past, Planet Hulk, House of M, and Armor Wars. Then, of course, there's that Secret Wars teaser from New York Comic Con. We don't know what they're up to, but they're up to something that's for sure!
