Truer than is should be
I guess that's because he's been there before, but back then, he was in charge.
Case in point, The Infinity Gauntlet.
Back in 1991, Jim Starlin returned to Marvel to follow up on the importance of the Infinity Gems that he introduced years before, and by doing so, he wrote Thanos collecting them all Pokemon-style and fastening them onto a guantlet.
He was essentially God.
That brings us to today's edition of Back-Issue Spotlight, where I focus on the IG tie-ins, specifically the Silver Surfer issues.
Today is part one of those tie-ins, Silver Surfer#55.
Silver Surfer#55 (Vol.3) (Sep '91) "The Universe According To Thanos: Part 1 Genesis" By Ron Marz And Ron Lim.
The late 40's, were about Warlock coming back onto the scene after a long self-exile because Thanos himself had also returned.
And now Thanos had the all-powerful Infinity Guantlet in his possession....and the entire MU was fucked.
Running concurrently with the main event title, this issue focuses on the inital attack on Thanos by the Marvel heroes from the Silver Surfer's point of of view. And much like we saw in Infinity Guantlet#3, it doesn't go well for them:
So yeah, they're not doing too hot.
Warlock sends Surfer in too late, and after seeing what Thanos has done, Surfer and Warlock fall apart.
Thanos takes out Warlock, the same way Warlock did him years earlier.
Any life is created are soley used and treated like cattle; meant to die as a means of honoring her.
