Scattered across the Marvel cosmos, six stones, each accompanied by inconceivable abilities…together they pave the path to omnipotence. Who will possess these invincible cosmic weapons? INFINITY COUNTDOWN will tell the tale!

INFINITY COUNTDOWN PRIME–available in February from writer Gerry Duggan and artist Mike Deodato–begins the procession to a new story so big it will engulf the Guardians of the Galaxy and bring about the end of that venerable group before calling the entire Marvel Universe to bear. With the five-part INFINITY COUNTDOWN series beginning in March, Duggan and Aaron Kuder gather the players for an upcoming adventure playing out with unimaginable scale.

“As we worked on the Infinity Stones’ story, it became clear the story was much bigger than we could contain in the GUARDIANS OF THE GALAXY series,” explains editor Jordan D. White. “It starts with the Guardians, but the story extends out into the entire Marvel Universe, with stones popping up in some very surprising places. COUNTDOWN is the next step in the story…but as the name implies, it’s leading to something even greater.”

The epic promises to include everybody from the Avengers to the X-Men and all heroes and villains in between, as the mystery surrounding the Stones swells and pulls in more and more major movers and shakes. All the while, mysterious forces forge a new weapon like nothing ever seen before–how does it connect to the Infinity Stones? What will it mean for the Marvel Universe? And who will possess it?

The intergalactic action begins with INFINITY COUNTDOWN PRIME in February–featuring a prose primer on the Infinity Stones–and spills over into INFINITY COUNTDOWN proper the next month. Don’t miss the biggest event to impact the larger Marvel mythos since Secret Wars!

The countdown for the ultimate weapon begins this February…but where it ends, only time will tell…
