Review: The Infinity Gauntlet

The Infinity Gauntlet The Infinity Gauntlet by Jim Starlin
My rating: 4 of 5 stars

I read this back when it was originally published in 1991, and I remember thinking, “Wow! This is a comic that combines the best of Marvel’s more grounded heroes with its cosmic elements to create an epic story of a threat to the entire universe. Someday, maybe in about 20 or 25 years when motion picture technology advances to the point where they can make superhero movies that look really cool, Marvel could start their own movie studio and release a series of films based on some of these characters. Then they could use the Infinity Stones as the primary connective tissue that links all those films together.

After capitalizing on that for movie after movie and making piles of money, the whole thing can climax with a version of this story. Like maybe it could be an Avengers movie called The Infinity War or something like that. That’s a pretty big story for just one film. Maybe two movies tied together? Yeah, that sounds better. And I’m thinking they'd be ready to do that in…let’s say 2018 or so.”

Yep. I totally saw it coming…
