EXCLUSIVE: Marvel Teases Infinity Gauntlet In Summer 2015

For more than a week, Marvel Comics has been teasing a return to some of its biggest events in the summer of 2015. Now, Marvel has provided ComicBook.com with an exclusive teaser for a return to what many consider to be their biggest event of all, The Infinity Gauntlet.

Originally published in 1991, written by Jim Starlin and drawn by George Perez and Ron Lim, The Infinity Gauntlet was the 6-issue miniseries that saw The Mad Titan, Thanos, finally achieve his goal of collecting all six Infinity Gems and placing them in the his gauntlet, granting him power above that of even the gods.

In an effort to court Death – literally – Thanos immediately wiped out half of life in the universe. The heroes of earth attempted to stop him, but were unsuccessful. Thanos even won a standoff with the joined forces of Marvel’s cosmic entities. It is only through Thanos’ hubris and overconfidence that the universe is spared from his complete and total dominion.

The teaser image, created by Infinity artist Dustin Weaver, is interesting because it shows Thanos with the Gauntlet, but with only the Reality and Mind Gems attached, leaving the Soul, Time, Space, and Power gems unaccounted for.

The teaser also suggests that Star-Lord will be involved in the event, as well as several, possibly even a family, of Nova Corpsmen.

The Infinity Gauntlet teaser is the seventh such teaser, following Civil WarAge of Ultron vs. Marvel ZombiesYears of Future PastPlanet Hulk, Armor Wars and House of M. There was also the Secret Wars announcement from New York Comic Con, revealing the mega-event, written by Jonathan Hickman and debuting in May of 2015.

There’s still no official word on a connection between Secret Wars and these other event teasers.

  1. Marvel, are you ok?

  2. I'm pretty sure all of these teasers have to do with Hickman's Time Runs Out storyline. Current characters being thrown all over time and space. Maybe the original X-Men will get sent home, where they need to be. :)

    Why Star Lord when Silver Surfer and Adam Warlock was two of the most important playersof the original arc?

  3. These "Teasers" are not re-hashes of the older events. Marvel is planning something huge.(comic book huge). They are purposely choosing big events, Each have had minor changes in the images from what was actually in the comic. Just look at the Novas. They are of the Sam Alexander variety and not the Rich Rider type. So far they would have at least 8 events going at once if all these teaser are for actually comic series. The 7 teaser (5 last week and 2 this week) plus Secret Wars.
