Cap doesn’t look all that happy.
This September, the Marvel Universe fights for survival in the biggest battle it’s ever faced – but first, Marvel is proud to unveil the jaw dropping main cover to Infinity #2 by Adam Kubert! 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.
I was kind of under the impression that Infinity wasn’t going to feature the actual Avengers all the much and that they were simply going to be out of the picture for a while. Since they were gone, I thought the actual Infinity book was going to focus on Black Bolt and the rag-tag team of heroes that comes together to fight the Mad Titan.
From the looks of issue #2’s cover though, it looks like Infinity will indeed have plenty of Avengers and feature a war on two fronts. We’ll have to see how Marvel and the creative minds behind the story manage to balance that, not to mention link the two tales up for the combined ending that is seems to be heading towards.
Look for Infinity #1 from Marvel Comics to hit stands this August.
