Last month Marvel  posted a mysterious promo with several characters in possession of Infinity Stones/Gems with the tease that the "countdown" would begin in February. After Guardians of the Galaxy was canceled, writer Gerry Dugan  said it was to expand the story beyond those characters, starting with two titles -- Infinity Countdown: Adam Warlock and Infinity Countdown Prime -- in February. Little information was given beyond that, but today we are getting slightly more info about the Prime one-shot and the Countdown (no not that other Countdown) series.

Infinity Countdown Prime will kick off the "event" on February 21. It will be written by Dugan with art by Mike Deodato Jr. Here's a synopsis of the one-shot:

"The Infinity Stones. Individually, they grant their wielder great power. Together, they grant the power of a god. Newly reformed and scattered throughout the universe, these artifacts allow the ones who claim them their heart's desire. Now, as their locations are discovered, forces converge for a battle that will begin the universe down a dark path to the end" … "Jump onto this exciting ride that will lead to the biggest Infinity yet! Plus: The saga of the Infinity Stones - what they are and how they came to be! From creation to destruction to re-creation, this prose primer will tell you everything you need to know about the legendary cosmic gems!"

On March 7 the Infinity Countdown series begins. Infinity Countdown will be a 5-issue series by Dugan and artist Aaron Kuder. Marvel put out a press release describing the series:

"As the hunt for the stones begins, a new weapon of unimaginable power is being forged...and it's a weapon like nothing the universe has ever seen!" … "What is its purpose? And who - or what - is the destructive force that will be unleashed on the world? The race for power in the post Secret Wars universe has begun, and its search will impact every Marvel character from the street to the cosmos, from the Avengers to Spider-Man to the X-Men, even bringing about the end of the Guardians of the Galaxy!"
