Now that Age of Ultron has concluded and Infinity is inching its way closer and closer, Marvel has released a trailer for the first issue of the six-part comic event coming this August. We at Capeless have covered the event previously (here), but the trailer has us asking questions we’ve never asked before. What is this Black Order that is working for Thanos? And who or what is Thanos seeking to help him on his mission to end all life? One thing’s for sure, Infinity is shaping up to be one hell of an interesting ride.
[FROM THE OFFICIAL PRESS RELEASE]
Infinity, the six-part blockbuster comic event of the summer, brought to you by the star studded creative team of Jonathan Hickman, Jim Cheung, Jerome Opena & Dustin Weaver, takes fans to every corner of the Marvel Universe, and beyond! Earth has been marked as an Avengers World, protected by Iron Man, Captain America, Thor and more from the deadliest threats facing humanity. A powerful and destructive race is on a collision course with Earth and the only thing in their path is the Avengers! But even Earth’s Mightiest Heroes realize the one hope of defeating this dire threat is to unite every great hero across the cosmos…because only with a united Avengers Universe is there any chance of survival!
With our heroes at the other end of the universe, who is left to protect Earth? Enter Thanos, the galaxy’s most ruthless threat and an unparalleled force of brutality who brings order to the chaos of life through murder. The greatest threat to the Mad Titan’s work—and perhaps the universe’s greatest hope—is something he created leaving no world safe. Earth’s last hope may lie in the hands of a man who can level cities with a single whisper – Black Bolt, king of the Inhumans. But can the fearsome leader of a race hated and feared by his world, lead his people against Thanos? If they fall, so does the Earth—and the entire universe with it.
The Biggest Heroes. The Biggest Threats. The Biggest Sacrifices. This is Marvel’s Infinity.
