“All is right in the heavens for Thanos possesses the six Infinity Gems.” A terrific splash page for a terrific issue. Things start to heat up and we see just about every (and even some villains—like Dr. Doom) start to notice the threat Thanos poses as he attempts to win Death’s love by wiping out half of the population of the universe.
This is a slow boil, and this issue is mostly simmer. Although we do get some great moments with Eros, aka Starfox—a character who is pretty much awful unless he’s being written by Jim Starlin (or Dan Slott in She Hulk). And we get a nice little Pip interlude.
Remember him, from Adam Warlock’s comic?
