Synopsis for "Chthonic Maneuvers"

This story is a reprint of the comic
Infinity War #1.

On an unnamed planet, Thanos is stalked by his doppelganger. After entering a lab, the original converses with his computer and analyzes mysterious energy patterns. Thanos boards his reconstructed Space Throne and leaves to find the source of the energy.

On Earth, Spider-Man is watched and followed by his own doppelganger.

Elsewhere, Galactus and his herald, Nova, discover Eternity in a catatonic state. They determine this condition is "artificially induced by an outside force," and seek to investigate who could have that level of power. Nearby, Thanos observes the scene as well, and catches a glimpse of his doppelganger.

Thanos teleports to another dimension and finds a large headquarters. Inside, he discovers the source of the mysterious energy is a "lozenge-shaped module." He is then confronted by the Magus.

Back on Earth, Doctor Doom detects the mysterious energies. He intends to gain the power for himself, but needs advanced technology.

Meanwhile, various heroes battle their doppelgangers. The winner of Mister Fantastic's fight is ambiguous and uncertain (see Notes). Iron Man is defeated in a large explosion. Wolverine stabs and kills his doppelganger, which then disappears. Spider-Man's doppelganger lies impaled on a spiked fence. Iron Man's doppelganger transforms into a mass of tentacles, engulfs him, and merges with him.

Galactus loses the energy trail he had been following. He decides to enlist a mage who can help penetrate mystical barriers.

Thanos socializes with the Magus, as his doppelganger serves them drinks. He assumes the Magus seeks ultimate power, and tries to dissuade him from this plan. The Magus threatens Thanos with doppelgangers of various heroes, taunts him to "let Adam know", then teleports him away.

Mister Fantastic sends a message to the Avengers, X-Men, New Warriors, West Coast Avengers, X-Factor, and Alpha Flight. He requests a meeting the next morning to discuss a universal threat.

Doctor Strange is surprised by a bright flash of light (see Notes).

Doctor Doom joins forces with Kang, and reveals there are actually five energy sources. Outwardly, they agree to capture these and rule their respective eras. In their thoughts, each intends to betray the other.

Finally, Thanos meets with the Infinity Watch and requests their aid.

Synopsis for "Ethereal Revisionism"

This story is a reprint of the comic
Infinity War #2.

Numerous heroes gather at Four Freedoms Plaza and wait for Mister Fantastic to start the meeting.

Doctor Doom and Kang analyze the mysterious energy emissions. They discover receptors on every star and planet in the galaxy.

On Monster Island, Thanos and the Infinity Watch discuss the Magus' return. They plan to gain more information at the Palace of Mistress Death. Magus and the Thanos Doppelganger secretly watch them on a monitor, before turning their attentions to Galactus.

At Earth's energy receptor, Doctor Doom and Kang cloak themselves. Galactus, Doctor Strange, Nova, and Silver Surfer arrive shortly after the villains. They enter a cave and discover a column of powerful, mystical energy. They leave to search for the emission source. Doctor Doom and Kang plan to follow them with a trace beam.

Hawkeye is attacked by his doppelganger. Spider-Man saves him, but is attacked in turn by Iron Man's doppelganger.

Thanos and the Infinity Watch teleport into Death's palace, and consult the Infinity Well. It recaps the origin of the Magus, the Infinity Gauntlet saga, and the formation of the Infinity Watch. It also reveals that during the time Adam Warlock controlled the Gauntlet, he had subconsciously expelled all good and evil from himself. The evil side had reincorporated as the Magus. After his return, the Magus had explored five alternate realities and took items of near-finite power from them. Thanos and the Infinity watch are forced to escape from Mistress Death before learning the Magus' goal.

Mister Fantastic finally starts his meeting. He tells the gathered heroes that he was attacked by a doppelganger during the previous night. He believes the doppelganger came to replace him. Wolverine, based on his sense of smell, accuses Mister Fantastic and Iron Man of being impostors. The other heroes begin to react and argue. Daredevil, using his radar sense, accuses Mister Fantastic and Iron Man as well. He warns everyone to keep them away from the podium, however a brawl erupts. Mister Fantastic pushes a button, unveils a gamma bomb, and detonates it.

Synopsis for "Nefarious Rhapsodies"

This story is a reprint of the comic
Infinity War #3.

A gamma bomb destroys the top of Four Freedoms Plaza. However, Invisible Woman manages to hold the blast back with a forcefield, and Thor creates a whirlwind to carry the nuclear fallout into space. The heroes begin to confront the doppelgangers of Mister Fantastic and Iron Man. The Magus and Thanos' Doppelganger suddenly teleport in, and quickly escape with the imposters. The heroes mistake them for Adam Warlock and the original Thanos. Shaman senses deep mystic energy, and suggests enlisting a more powerful mage to help. Hulk says Doctor Strange is unavailable, so Scarlet Witch intends to contact substitutes.

Galactus, Doctor Strange, Nova, and Silver Surfer travel through a dimensional corridor. They are secretly followed by Doctor Doom and Kang.

Thanos and the Infinity Watch examine a column of "quasi-mystical" energy. They teleport away to trace its source.

Wonder Man informs Captain America that he found Spider-Man and Hawkeye unconscious. The two heroes are on their way to the hospital. Black Cat and Black Widow volunteer to stand guard and protect them. Hank Pym, Invisible Woman, and Vision study data on Mister Fantastic's computer. They discover energy receptors throughout the galaxy, and apparent coordinates to the transmission source.

In his fortress, Magus monitors the heroes and reveals that he had planted those coordinates. He also explains that the gamma bomb was simply meant to confuse and distract the heroes, rather than destroy them.

Scarlet Witch returns with Agatha Harkness and Doctor Druid. Along with Shaman, they offer to transport the heroes to the energy source. Quasar contacts Captain America from the Dimension of Manifestations. He reports that Eternity has been rendered catatonic. Captain America recalls Quasar back to Earth.

The Magus detects that Galactus and his crew are moving ahead of schedule. In order to delay them, the Magus explodes their ship. He then explains his megalomaniacal motivations to Thanos' doppelganger.

Thinking they had found the energy source, Doctor Doom and Kang find a relay transmitter instead. They reset their machines and cloak themselves. Thanos' doppelganger detects their presence as "odd energy fluctuations," but the Magus assumes the reading is simply a result of the relay transmitter. Thanos and the Infinity Watch arrive. While they wait for their own equipment to reset, Thanos and Warlock discuss the direction of Adam's life.

Earth's heroes form an expeditionary force, and the mystics cast their teleportation spell.

The Magus and Thanos' doppelganger watch as the Living Tribunal confronts Eternity. Next, they send an army of doppelgangers to attack the heroes who remained at Four Freedoms Plaza.

Thanos and the Infinity Watch get ready to leave the relay transmitter site. However, the expeditionary force arrives and surrounds them.

Synopsis for "Mortiferous Artifice"

This story is a reprint of the comic
Infinity War #4.

The heroes at Four Freedoms Plaza battle an army of doppelgangers. Meanwhile, the expeditionary force battles Thanos and the Infinity Watch.

Galactus' ship and crew reassemble after previously exploding.

Thanos' Doppelganger detects a scanner anomaly again, but the Magus orders him to ignore it. The anomaly is actually the ship of Doctor Doom and Kang. It arrives at the Magus' fortress, and the two villains enter. They override the security on a ceiling module, and discover five Cosmic Containment Units.

Galactus arrives at the relay transmitter site and interrupts the battle against the Infinity Watch. He freezes everyone with a stasis field, and brings them aboard his ship. At the Silver Surfer's urging, Galactus transmits an ion beam to Four Freedoms Plaza and destroys all the attacking doppelgangers. In order to quickly share information on the current situation, he subjects everyone to a cerebral scan. The heroes are surprised to learn that Thanos is on their side this time.

Thor is sent back to their home dimension to obtain updated data through his hammer. He observes that there are now two Earths and two moons in space. Additionally, the heroes at Four Freedoms Plaza are frozen in a trance.

Warlock and Thanos convene the members of the Infinity Watch, and they all agree to reassemble the Infinity Gauntlet. However, they discover that the Living Tribunal's prior verdict renders the Gems powerless when they are together. Galactus arranges to meet with the Living Tribunal and appeal the decision. He takes Gamora with him as a respresentative. Right after they depart, the Magus and Thanos' doppelganger teleport in and quickly abduct Warlock and the Infinity Gauntlet.

Thanos informs the heroes of the data Thor collected. He explains that the Magus is creating a duplicate reality and merging it with the original. Captain America tries to quickly plan strategy and response. Thanos finds the Ultimate Nullifier, then challenges Quasar to wield it.

Synopsis for "Psychomachia!"

This story is a reprint of the comic
Infinity War #5.

Quasar holds the Ultimate Nullifier. Captain America and Hercules try to dissuade him from trusting Thanos' plan.

In their home dimension, Sleepwalker observes that everyone on Earth is locked in a trance. Meanwhile, Thor and the Watcher continue to monitor the two Earths and two moons merging.

In his fortress, the Magus snatches the Infinity Gauntlet from his captive, Adam Warlock. He gloats about his plan. Doctor Doom and Kang hide behind some machinery, ready to strike.

Captain America checks in on Professor X, Moondragon, Psylocke, Jean Grey, and Nova. With the help of Sleepwalker, the psychics are trying to stimulate the minds of everyone on Earth to resist the trance. Wonder Man notifies them that Quasar is leaving to use Ultimate Nullifer. Quasar floats outside the Magus' fortress and takes aim. He hesitates, however, prompting Thanos to plan a direct assault.

The Magus instructs Thanos' Doppelganger to leave and prepare an ambush for the heroes. Doctor Doom and Kang comment that the Magus has constantly overlooked them and failed to notice them because they were never part of his plan. The Magus explains to Warlock all his manipulations.

Galactus and Gamora meet with the Living Tribunal and Eternity. The Tribunal explains that his previous ruling prevents the Infinity Gems from functioning together. Because that verdict was in favor of Eternity, only Eternity can reverse it. However, the entity remains catatonic. With little warning, Galactus bonds with Gamora and sends her into Eternity's body to heal him.

Doctor Doom and Kang finally attack the Magus. Warlock aids and defends him, to prevent the other two villains from obtaining the Infinity Gauntlet. The Magus knocks down Kang and flees, while Doom incapacitates Warlock with a blast. Doom then turns against Kang and blasts him as well. The Magus tries to reach his collection of Cosmic Containment Units before Quasar can fire the Ultimate Nullifier. However, he discovers that someone has stolen them. Doom then strikes the Magus from behind, and orders him to slowly surrender the Infinity Gauntlet.

Simultaneously, Galactus and Gamora succeed in awakening Eternity. He requests that the Infinity Gems be allowed to work as one, then collapses again. The Living Tribunal restores power to the Infinity Gauntlet just before the Magus can release it. Quickly adjusting to omnipotence, the Magus blasts Dr. Doom, turns the Ultimate Nullifier against Quasar, and torments Warlock.

Thanos seemingly opens a portal into the Magus' fortress, and the heroes rush through it. However, they arrive in the courtyard instead and are ambushed by doppelgangers. Thanos teleports inside the fortress alone, but is confronted by his own doppelganger.

The Infinity Watch soon realize they've ended up on Monster Isle in the Bermuda Triangle. Mole Man and a horde of giant monsters greet them, but Mole Man doesn't want them as enemies, rather he offers them the use of the island's castle as their home base in exchange for their friendship. After some assurances that the Infinity Watch will have autonomy on the island and that Mole Man's conquering days are behind him, Warlock and his team accept the offer. Before they have any chance to settle in, however, they're visited by Thanos, who has come seeking Warlock's help.

Synopsis for "Interlude"

This story is a reprint of the comic
Warlock and the Infinity Watch #8.

Thanos and the Infinity Watch observe a column of energy. The Titan explains it is a relay junction. Before they can trace the energy source, they must wait for his scanners to recalibrate. Thanos and Warlock briefly share their memories of holding the Infinity Gauntlet.

Gamora has a sudden precognitive vision through her Time Gem. She sees Warlock crucified, and a gauntleted hand reaching towards him.

Thanos and Moondragon discuss her abilities with the Mind Gem, and her complex relationship with Drax.

Thanos' Doppelganger informs the Magus that the expeditionary force is on its way.

Gamora tells Warlock about her psychic vision. She then spars with Thanos. Drax cannot tell if they are "really fighting, or just messing around," but in the end they smile and compliment each other.

Pip and Warlock discuss the latter's lack of good and evil.

Right when the team tries to depart, the expeditionary force arrives and surrounds them.

Synopsis for "Old Wounds"

This story is a reprint of the comic
Warlock and the Infinity Watch #9.

Galactus and Gamora meet with the Living Tribunal and Eternity. The Tribunal explains that his previous ruling prevents the Infinity Gems from functioning together. Because that verdict was in favor of Eternity, only Eternity can reverse it. However, the entity remains catatonic. Galactus bonds with Gamora against her will, and sends her into Eternity's body to heal him.

Gamora recalls her childhood with Thanos. On Tartoonla #7, she disobeyed his order to remain aboard their ship. She explored the port city, but was attacked by a street gang. They inflicted "abuses never imagined" and "an offense to both the flesh and the spirit." When she regained consciousness, she saw that Thanos had killed the gang. Her body was battered and her clothes were torn. Thanos took her back to their ship, and rebuilt her body with cybernetic parts. Gamora vowed to never be used or abused again.

Within Eternity, Gamora blasts the mystic bands that were causing his catatonia. She is surprised to see that this frees Infinity as well.
