From the superstar creative team of New York Times best-selling writer Jonathan Hickman (Avengers, Avengers VS. X-Men) and artists Jim Cheung (Avengers: Children’s Crusade) Jerome Opena (Avengers, Uncanny X-Force), and Dustin Weaver (Avengers, Uncanny X-Men), Earth’s Mightiest are suddenly split between two battlefronts that could change everything they know about the Marvel Universe! With their backs against the wall, how will the Avengers endure not just the species-slaughtering World Builders, but the Mad Titan himself—Thanos?
