The release of Marvel’s latest comic event this week makes up to all those fans who are not able to get over the shock after the release of Avengers: Infinity War, which brought the rage down on the heroes initialized by Thanos in the quest for the infinity stones. The fans reckon that although the movie released almost a month ago, it seems like a lifetime now. The comic event may seem to be an attempt to cash in on the success of the recent film but let us not forget that the film represents the conclusion of the accurately plotted epic comic written by Gerry Duggan. The film redefined the roles and purpose of all the Infinity Gems throughout the Marvel Universe with the help of renowned artists like Aaron Kuder, Mike Hawthorne, and Mike Deodato.
Written by Gerry Duggan, and drawn by Mike Deodato Jr, Frank Martin and Cory Petit the Infinity Wars Prime #1 needs to be recapped to make the fans remember a few underrated superhero stories in the past. We have Stones and Gems and what can be expected from the infinity wars, specially curated for you.
Stones and Gems
Back in Jonathan Hickman’s Avengers series, the Earth was vulnerable by “incursions” from other parallel planets which threatened to abolish both worlds. To fight the threat, the Black Panther put together an all-new Illuminati, the secret group of made up of the cleverest and most administratively powerful superheroes on planet Earth. The team then decided to unite the Infinity Gems which they had been guarding separately since a long time in Brian Michael Bendis and Jim Cheung’s New Avengers: Illuminati miniseries and then utilize the power of the Infinity Gauntlet to stop the two Piles of earth from touching, thus saving both the worlds. Battles for the Infinity Stones took place through the entire Marvel Universe. Thanos wanted them and had gotten himself a Chitauri army to do it, while other dangerous groups had their eyes on assembling the stones, war broke out throughout the galaxy.
What to expect from the Infinity Wars
While everybody was busy fighting for the Infinity Stones, a secretive character called “Requiem” kidnapped a troll of Nidavellir and persuaded him to create a new armor-suit made of powerful cosmic elements and an extremely powerful cosmic weapon. Requiem enters the fray in this week’s Infinity Wars Prime #1 and placing her on the top with the infinity symbol on her mask can be expected that she’s a character we’re already acquainted with and whose identity will be revealed at a critical stage in the forthcoming story. Now that you know about what to expect from the Infinity Wars, you can now explore the series in your own sweet time.
