First Look at Marvel's Infinity Gauntlet #1 Features a 'More Grizzled' Thanos for Secret Wars

As part of the onslaught of Secret Wars teasers, Marvel revealed last summer that they would be resurrecting the 1991 series Infinity Gauntlet in the summer of 2015. Here is the first artwork from the new series, which mostly features a "more grizzled" version of Thanos, the biggest Marvel baddie right now except for possibly Ultron, and a new hero named Anwen:

The series follows a young girl named Anwen Balkin, who lives with her family in a post-apocalyptic wasteland populated with gigantic carnivorous insects, and who embarks on a cosmic adventure when she comes across one of the Infinity Stones. The Infinity Stones brings Thanos into the narrative; artist Dustin Weaver said of their interpretation of character, "This is a more grizzled version of the character; he caries the weight of his experiences. He's colder, more mysterious, and impenetrable. But you can be certain, some things about Thanos will never change."

 

"In the case of this series, you'll see some old ideas and characters in a new way, while being introduced to brand new concepts," Duggan told Hero Complex. "There's one idea in particular that I would love to tell you about, but Marvel holds all the Infinity Stones and would erase my answer from this timeline."
