Thanos' Black Order Rises in New Avengers: Infinity War Art

While fans are by now quite familiar with what the heroes of Marvel's Avengers: Infinity War look like, they've so far only seen Thanos' team, the Black Order, through statues displayed last summer at Comic-Con International and the D23 Expo. Unfortunately, the film's much-discussed Super Bowl commercial didn't change that -- but a new catalog cover does.

Sometimes referred to as the "Children of Thanos," the Black Order is displayed prominently, with the Mad Titan himself, in an illustrated cover for Germany's Panini Vorschau: That's Ebony Maw and Proxima Midnight among Thanos and a roster of Marvel Studios heroes.

Also known in Marvel Comics as the Cull Obsidian, the Black Order is a relatively new addition, having been introduced in 2013 in Infinity, by Jonathan Hickman, Jerome Pena and Jim Cheung. Gathered by Thanos, the team demands tributes from worlds for the Mad Titan, and arrives on Earth in search of the Infinity Gems (Infinity Stones in the MCU). Presumably the Black Order plays a similar role in Avengers: Infinity War.
