When we reported back in November on Jim Starlin's upcoming "secret project" for Marvel Comics, the question on everyone's mind was: "Will this be another rehasing of the same story Starlin told in 1991's Infinifty Gauntlet?" Of course, the answer on everyone's mind was: "Of course it will be, because that's the only story Starlin ever writes for Marvel." So, imagine our surprise when Marvel revealed today via Newsarama that Starlin's book is an OGN called Thanos: The Infinity Revelation:
Starlin tells Newsarama that Thanos: The Infinity Revelation finds the so-called Avatar of Death on the precipice of a universe-wide catastrophe caused by Thanos himself. Rarely seen major cosmic forces such as Eternity, Infinity, and the Living Tribunal come onto the scene to witness this universe-ending threat, and Thanos finds himself working with the man he once killed but might be his only friend, Adam Warlock.
Fans looking for more information are advised to go read the back cover of any of the five or six other Infinity stories Starlin has written over the years. "It's basically the same thing," said Marvel Editor in Chief Axel Alonso, waving his hands dismissively.
