Space. Reality. Mind. Power. Time. Soul.

Before creation itself, there were six singularities. Then the universe exploded into existence, and the remnants of these systems were forged into concentrated ingots…

Infinity Stones.

Only beings of immense power can hope to wield these stones, but for those who are worthy, the powers of a god await. In Marvel Studios’ “Avengers: Infinity War,” Thanos, a ruthless warlord, proved himself to be one such being. But he wasn’t always.

Born on a doomed world and cast out by his people for his genius, physical deviancy, and pragmatic but monstrous ideas, Thanos is determined to save the galaxy from the same fate as his homeworld… no matter how many billions have to die. In this new original novel, “MARVEL’S Avengers: Infinity War: Thanos: Titan Consumed,” by bestselling author Barry Lyga, learn the origins of the most formidable foe the Avengers, the Guardians of the Galaxy, Doctor Strange, and Black Panther have ever faced, and see how Thanos became the Titan consumed by his quest for power. Check out an exclusive interview with Barry Lyga as well as preview an excerpt from the novel in the gallery here.
