Marvel has announced an all-ages Avengers and the Inifinity Gauntlet title, where Thanos will wield the Inifinity Gauntlet once again!
It’s a good time to be the Mad Titan, with the next major Marvel cosmic event, The Thanos Imperative, focused on him, and now what appears to be an all-ages retelling of the classic Infinity Gauntlet story. The series will be written by Atomic Robo’s Brian Clevinger and Rex Mundi’s Brian Churilla. Here’s a snippet from an interview with Clevinger at IGN:
The Earth plunges into chaos when half the population suddenly disappears. Villains take advantage of the fear and confusion because that’s what evil jerks do. The hero community is in way over its head between trying to help with both the global strife and the sudden wave of supervillainous activity. The heroes use superscience to figure out the source of whatever it was that took everyone away and they send The Avengers to investigate. Only, the "real" Avengers are among those who disappeared! So, these aren’t the Avengers you’d necessarily expect to see.
And that’s just the first issue. The bulk of the series will focus on The Avengers’ perilous journey into space to confront the source of this global disaster only to discover the stakes are far larger than what they could have ever imagined! If whatever happened doesn’t get fixed, and soon, it’ll be the end of all civilization in the galaxy.
