Marvel has released new information about the upcoming Infinity Countdown, and as the cover images imply, we know who holds the Infinity Stones.
The Infinity Stones, thought to be lost forever, have suddenly reappeared — bringing with them the ultimate power for good and evil. Three stones have fallen into the hands of the mightiest heroes in the galaxy…but where are the rest?
As the hunt for the stones begins, a new weapon of unimaginable power is being forged…and it’s a weapon like nothing the universe has ever seen! What is its purpose? And who – or what – is the destructive force that will be unleashed on the world? The race for power in the post Secret Wars universe has begun, and its search will impact every Marvel character from the street to the cosmos, from the Avengers to Spider-Man to the X-Men, even bringing about the end of the Guardians of the Galaxy!
“As we worked on the Infinity Stones’ story, it became clear the story was much bigger than we could contain in the Guardians of the Galaxy series,” said editor Jordan D. White. “It starts with the Guardians, but the story extends out into the entire Marvel Universe, with stones popping up in some VERY surprising places. Countdown is the next step in the story…but as the name implies, it’s leading to something even greater.”
Ahead of the first issue release, Marvel will release Infinity Countdown Prime #1, written by Duggan with art by Mike Deodato, which will reveal the location of the six stones.
Infinity Countdown Prime #1 is scheduled to arrive on February 21, 2018, while Infinity Countdown #1 is set for a March 3, 2018 release.
