After being teased by Marvel for over a year, we're finally on the cusp of seeing what the Infinite Destinies event will bring to comics. The saga is expected to unfold across a series of eight installments, culminating in a storyline that will set the record straight about the current state of the Infinity Stones in the Marvel universe. On Tuesday, Marvel revealed the newest information about exactly what Infinite Destinies has in store, including details surrounding the upcoming annuals for Miles Morales: Spider-Man, Guardians of the Galaxy, and Avengers, which will serve as the final three chapters.

Each part of this saga will see an iconic character clash or team up with a rising star as the very future of the Marvel Universe hang in the balance! Which of these powerful new characters is an Infinity Stone Bearer…and which isn’t? Find out by snatching up these annuals this summer! Each annual will also include one chapter of INFINITE FURY detailing Nick Fury’s chase for these stone-bearers and finding so much more than he bargained for.

"I've been holding onto the secrets of the Power Stone for a long, long time - some of these ideas have been bubbling away since the end of Infinity Wars,” Ewing said in a statement. “But while anyone picking up Guardians of the Galaxy knows by now who the stone's new owner is, how they came to be has remained untold... until now.
