Synopsis for "Preparations for War"

Earth's heroes have gathered and it is nearly time to begin their attack on Thanos. Doctor Doom tries to convince the others that he should lead them but they refuse and side with Warlock instead. Silver Surfer and Adam Warlock take off to another location to start the plan.

They meet with Quasar and Epoch who have gathered some of the most powerful entities in the universe. The Living Tribunal states that no cosmic crime is being committed and he will not aid them. Galactus objects to being lead by a mortal and even attempts to kill Warlock, but finally agrees to go along with the plan after the other cosmic beings join Warlock. The Watcheralso lets it be known that he will not participate.

Adam Warlock and the Silver Surfer return to lead the attack. Warlock takes Wolverine and Hulk to the side and reminds them that they are important because the goal is to kill Thanos, and they will not hold back on him.

Thanos can still not get Death to fall in love with him so to spite her he creates the object of his affection, Terraxia. He claims she will be the perfect match for him and he no longer needs Death, who leaves when this happens. Thanos pretends not to care but is clearly infuriated by her departure.

Doctor Strangecasts a spell allowing everyone to breathe in space and uses the Eye of Agamatto to transport them to Thanos. Silver Surfer and Adam Warlock have plans of their own and do not join the fight, instead watching from afar. He explains that most of them will not survive Thanos' power and they are merely a diversion.
