With a title like Infinity Countdown, you knew the "event" would lead to something. The hunt for Infinity Stones began in Countdown, and apparently will lead to (get ready for it) war. Or Wars. This Summer we'll be treated to what will probably be a multi-issue saga starting with Infinity Wars: Prime.
Here's how Marvel describes the upcoming title:
In INFINITY WARS: PRIME #1, the heroes and villains of the Marvel Universe reap what they sow as their frantic search for the Infinity Stones leads to cosmic madness like never before. The simmering events of recent months spiral into something much, much bigger in this colossal story.
Marvel also released an image of the cover for Infinity Wars: Prime #1. It looks like Adam Warlock is now channeling Freddy Freeman. Also looking to appear in the issue are Doctor Strange, Gamora, Captain Marvel, Star-Lord, Thanos, Loki… and… Kylo Ren with an infinity-styled goggle mask?

Infinity Wars: Prime #1 (the title similar to the movie starting next month we're sure is pure coincidence) will launch in July. It is written by Gerry Duggan, with art by Mike Deodato Jr. and colors by Frank Martin. Marvel is promising more information at C2E2 in early April.
