The mystery character known as Requiem is nowhere to be seen on the latest piece of art from Marvel's Infinity Wars Prime, but Thanos is present. The Mad Titan is as imposing as ever on the issue's new variant cover illustrated by comic book legend George Perez and colored by Richard Isanove.
Of course, Perez is no stranger to the cosmic villain, having collaborated with creator Jim Starlin and artist Ron Lim on the mid-80s Infinity Gauntlet series that inspired much of Marvel Studios' Avengers: Infinity War feature.
The original Infinity War series from 1992 revolved around the Magus’ efforts to use the Infinity Gauntlet for his own evil machinations. Though Magus did appear in the run-up to the current Infinity Countdown storyline, he was quickly killed by the event’s true villain – the human/android hybrid Ultron Pym.
Below is the official synopsis for Infinity Wars Prime #1, which arrives in July 2018.
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.
