After Revelation and Relativity comes a grand Finale! Desperate times called for mad measures. Facing checkmate in his latest grand game of cosmic chess, Thanos took himself off the board - violently. Yet for the paramour of Death, oblivion is so often temporary. Now the Titan is back -- but the galaxy has been ravaged in his absence. Annihilus, lord of the Negative Zone, is stronger than ever and harnessing the godlike power of Adam Warlock to wage genocide across the posiverse. Only a handful of heroes, and one or two villains, still stand. Will those few that remain choose between two evils and ally themselves with Thanos? They would form one of the mightiest assemblages ever witnessed. But even that may not be enough to avert the total annihilation of everything there is. And this time, the obliteration of all time and space may truly be the end. Builder and destroyer of universes Jim Starlin (Infinity Gauntlet) presents an epic conclusion to his new Infinity trilogy, featuring art by Ron Lim!
Annihilus, lord of the Negative Zone, makes a renewed assault on the positive universe, searching for a source of infinite power. To stop him, a fragile alliance of cosmic protectors forms. The Guardians of the Galaxy. Gladiator, Majestor of the Shi'ar. And Adam Warlock - whose complex cycle of death and rebirth has left him more confused than ever about his true nature. With Adam reunited with his Infinity Watch comrades Gamora, Drax and Pip the Troll - and joined by newer friends like Star-Lord, Rocket Raccoon and Groot -they hold the potential to end Annihilus' threat once and for all...if only they knew how! But the answer lies in the dark mind of another. A Titan, whom some would hold as mad. Could the fate of everything rest in the hands of...Thanos? Cosmic maestro Jim Starlin's infinite odyssey continues!
There is an imbalance in the universe. And, since his latest return from oblivion, Thanos himself feels... incomplete. Now the so-called Mad Titan would put both wrongs right. A pilgrimage to Death's dark domain, and the revelatory waters of the Infinity Well, leads Thanos on a new quest, with a once sworn enemy at his side. A crusade that will bring confrontation with the Silver Surfer and the galaxy's mightiest heroes, the Annihilators. An odyssey that will change everything. Cosmic maestro Jim Starlin returns to his signature character in a tale of death and rebirth that will transform the Marvel Universe once more!
She's come to stop crime across the globe and bring peace to the universe. Captain America and Spider-Man are on her side; Thanos and Mephisto stand against her. So how can she be the bad guy?
The Goddess has half of the Marvel universe on her side, but if she doesn't get her way, she's ready to destroy all of it! The Fantastic Four, the Avengers, the Defenders, the X-Men, X-Factor, X-Force, the New Warriors, and more are turned against each other in her cosmic inquisition.
When last we saw Adam Warlock, he was a captive of Annihilus of the Negative Zone. So where do we find him now? Hanging with the Original Avengers? Then things start getting weird. But what else would you expect from the cosmic team of Jim Starlin and Alan Davis? Guest-starring the Guardians of the Galaxy.
