What If Marvel Did 'What If? Infinity'?

Well they are. In November.

It looks like Marvel's "What If" is returning, and as it's been in its recent incarnations, it will be a limited series focused on an event. This time the question will revolve around 2014's Infinity mega-event. All five issues will be written by Joshua Williamson.

Here's a rundown of what you can expect:

What If? Infinity - Thanos #1 has the Mad Titan teaming up with the Avengers.

"It's really a matter of survival. He joins the team during the attack and the Avengers feel like it's their last resort to win. For Thanos, he just wants to win and is angry that anyone else would try to destroy the universe other than him. But, even as a member of the team, Thanos...is he ever really a hero? Or is he just using them?"


Art on this title will be by Mike Henderson.

What If? Infinity - Inhumans #1 has art by Riley Rossmo.

"In our story, Black Bolt has taken over after the Avengers lost the war during the Infinity event, so the world is in ruins. He's trying to rebuild civilization, but it doesn't feel like Earth anymore. Black Bolt has always been a king, but a whole planet is a lot more to deal with than he expected. Being king comes with a great cost, and Black Bolt is having troubles dealing with it all. No one really knows what happened to the Avengers, so the remaining Inhumans and citizens of Earth are holding out hope that the Avengers will return."

What If? Infinity - Avengers #1 has the writer teaming up with artist Mike Norton. It doesn't seem like Avengers will be the main focus…

"This story actually centers on some remaining X-Men members who were evacuated [from] Earth after the Avengers lost. Earth is gone. As far as they know, they are not just the last mutants alive: They're the last remnants of Earth. They have been flying around space trying to survive and find anyone who might have made it out of the war alive, and they've been doing it a long time."

What If? Infinity - Guardians of the Galaxy #1 has art by Jason Copeland. It looks like The Illuminati is harboring Thanos, and the Guardians are not too happy about it. Williamson calls it "Guardians of the Galaxy vs. the Avengers".

Finally, something a bit out of left field. What If? Infinity - Dark Reign #1 with Goran Sudzuka, features not only Infinity but also Dark Reign…

"When Osborn was the head of HAMMER during Dark Reign, he had a lot of power and tools at his disposal. In this issue, he managed to get his hands on the Infinity Gauntlet—and won. This is after he's killed or tortured all his enemies, and had one last person he wants to get revenge on."
