    ComicLink Comments: This epic Thanos splash drawn by legendary artist George Perez appeared in the first issue of Infinity Gauntlet, the 1991 series written by cosmic master Jim Starlin. For months in the pages of Silver Surfer, Thanos methodically gathered the six soul gems from across the universe and in Infinity Gauntlet #1, he's put them together to form the Infinity Gauntlet, the most powerful weapon imaginable, giving him the power of God himself. On this page Thanos wields the full power of the Infinity Gauntlet for the first time. The narrator explaining how Thanos is now "mightier than Death herself" is none other than the majestic Silver Surfer, who has come to Earth to warn Doctor Strange of what is transpiring so he can gather Earth's heroes to try to stop Thanos. Soon Thanos will do the unthinkable--simply snap his fingers and kill half of all life in the universe to appease Mistress Death, the personification of death itself that Thanos loves more than any living thing!

    27 years after its publication, Infinity Gauntlet remains one of the most popular stories in the history of Marvel Comics. George Perez, the master of universe shattering events, was the perfect artist to kickoff a truly epic event. Infinity Gauntlet was a key portion of writer Jim Starlin's second "Thanos Saga" that began in the pages of Silver Surfer #34 in 1990, reviving the characters and concepts he made popular in the 1970s.

    Of course, the events of the first issue of Infinity Gauntlet, which featured the offered splash, was adapted for the shocking conclusion of the recent epic movie, Avengers: Infinity War. That film has earned over $2 billion at the box office, meaning the film has been seen by one of the largest audiences of movie goers ever! The next Avengers film will also revolve around Thanos and the soul gems.

    Thanos first appeared in Iron Man #55 (1973) and then went on to appear in a series of cosmic stories by Starlin known as "The Thanos Saga" that appeared in 1970s issues of Captain Marvel, Strange Tales and Warlock. The story ended in 1977 with the apparent death of Thanos, but he returned with a vengeance in 1990 and has been a consistent presence in Marvel's comics ever since. Thanos is now, of course, a world famous figure due to his role as the featured villain in the new enormously successful movie, Avengers: Infinity War, which earlier this year set the record for an all-time opening weekend for a movie in the U.S. The character was built up slowly in the MCU, first appearing six years ago in a mid-credits scene in the enormously successful movie Marvel's Avengers. He then had a small part, played by Josh Brolin, in the huge 2014 hit, Marvel's Guardians of the Galaxy. Now Thanos, again played by Brolin, is the central villain in what has become one of the biggest movies in the history of film! Of course the story will continue in next May's still untitled fourth Avengers film.

    The Silver Surfer has been a popular character for over 50 years now. He was created by Jack Kirby and first appeared during the monumental Lee/Kirby Fantastic Four run starting with the historic #48 (1966). Since his introduction in 1963's Strange Tales #110 to the present day, Doctor Strange has been Marvel's premier mystical character. His 2016 Marvel Studio's film Doctor Strange featuring acclaimed actor Benedict Cumberbatch in the lead role, was a tremendous boost to character's world wide popularity. He has since appeared in Thor: Ragnarok and this year's sensation, Avengers: Infinity War.
