(Updated) Oops Missed One. Secret Wars 'Infinity Gauntlet' Was Announced…

… A month ago.


Source: SECRET WARS CORRESPONDENCE: INFINITY GAUNTLET

in The Non-Breaking News Department: Marvel confirmed a month ago that the Summer 2014 Infinity Gauntlet tease was, indeed, a Secret Wars title. Also file under: "Marvel Shocker".

Perhaps it was because this reporter thought that it would ne featuring Sam Alexander, the *urgh* current *argh* Nova, but it seems to be something different. The (still) upcoming (despite being a late article) title appears to be part of the Warzones! branding for the event and will be co-written by Gerry Duggan and Dustin Weaver, with art also by Weaver.

The Infinity Gauntlet lands in an (unspecified) area of Battleworld ravaged by alien enemies, and Thanos (surprise!) goes after the cosmic artifact. Who can (potentially) stop him? A family with a connection to the Nova Force, the Bakians. There will also be an appearance of "some form" of Star-Lord, and other cosmic characters.

About Infinity Gauntlet, Duggan (current writer of Nova) says:

"I’ve loved the Marvel cosmic universe since childhood. I read all [Jim] Starlin’s work and then later QUASAR, SILVER SURFER, and of course INFINITY GAUNTLET. It’s an honor to play in this corner of the sandbox. I’ve loved me time as Sam Alexander’s caretaker, but I’ve checked any impulses to align this story with that run. They’re two separate universes.”

Which may be good, if belated, news. Infinity Gauntlet falls into comic stores this May.

UPDATE: A recent article contained an interview with Gerry Duggan and contained some tiny bits of additional information and included some interior artwork. The point-of-view character (seen in the previously released designs) is the young Anwen Bakian. She will differ from Sam Alexander in that she had no heroes to look up to, her situation is more desperate, and has a "smarter head on her shoulders". Thank goodness.

The action starts when Anwen finds an unusual stone which also gets Thanos very interested. In addition to mentioning Star-Lord again, Duggan also teased a certain "canine unit" that will make an appearance.
