Synopsis for 1st story

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

Somewhere in the wilds of Canada, Logan is attacked by a group of aliens infected with the Ultron Virus, who are looking for the Space Stone in his possession to give to their master. Logan easily kills them all with the help of the stone's power, which lets him teleport. Suddenly, Loki appears in front of him and tries to convince him to leave the burden of the stone to him. Logan doesn't trust the Trickster God, so, after stabbing him in the face, he teleports away saying he's going to use the Gem for the mutants' sake and that should the wielders of the others show up, he'll grab theirs, too. Loki is left complaining alone about Logan's carelessness for the fate of their reality, which he believes to be in great peril because of the Stones' resurfacing.

The second stone, is possessed by Turk Barrett, a thug from Manhattan. He enters a casino and showcases his new powers of mind-reading by correctly predicting how a hand would turn out.

Meanwhile, the Reality Stone was obtained by Captain Marvel in Earth-Zeta, and the same happened for other Reality Stones by other Captains Marvel in other realities not their own.

The Power Stone is now so large it cannot even be moved. It resides on the planet Xitaung and was found by Star-Lord and Richard Rider during a mission for the Nova Corps. Right now, as the Novas could not keep their find secret, the Fraternity of Raptors and the Chitauri are waging war against them to obtain the Stone for themselves. The Guardians of the Galaxy are in the eye of the storm, with Gamora intending to go find the Soul Stone, where a part of her soul is trapped in, with Star-Lord more cautious and undecided on which way to go.

The Time Stone is on the planet Sakaar, and is found by the Super-Skrull, who intends to use it and the others to erase the "humiliation of the Skrull Empire from the cosmos."

In Egypt, Adam Warlock awakens from his slumber induced by Rama-Tut millennia ago. He is told he is in 2018, thus it is time for him to continue with his mission.

Finally, another piece of the puzzle is obviously Thanos, who has recently conquered Chitauri Prime with relative ease.

Back in the Milky Way upon Ego, all this is being explained to Magus by the Contemplator, forced by Adam Warlock's doppelganger to reveal the locations of the Stones for him to gather them all. When finished, the Contemplator explains he has made sure Magus would be noticed by other contenders for the Stones and, as he says that, Ultron opens a hole in Magus's chest, killing him. Ultron kills the Contemplator as well, as he says he won't reveal to him the location of the others; meanwhile, inside Ultron's newly acquired Soul Gem is Hank Pym, who looks on in despair at the works of his "son." Beside him, an old Gamora, the part of her soul that Gamora is looking for, explains to him they are trapped there forever.

Synopsis for 2nd story

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

An unidentified being has captured an Asgardian dwarf smith and orders him to make a certain helmet, on pain of death.

On the planet Xitaung, the Fraternity of Raptors mounts an attack on facility where the newly-enormous Power Stone is guarded by Drax and the pregnant Nova Corps Commander Eve Bakion. They need reinforcements, but the Raptors are jamming their signals.

Elsewhere, on the planet Telferina, the Guardians of the Galaxy battle the malevolent trees engineered by the Gardener. When the Gardener himself appears Rocket flies directly toward him and stabs his face with a knife, but this has no effect on the Gardener, and Elder of the Universe.

Drax has attached several of the Raptors wings to his own back hoping they wil make him fly and is irritated to learn they don’t work that way. Instead he forces two others to fly him up to the Raptors ships, where he overtakes a communications station. It will not work for him either, but Quinon hears telepathically and says she will summon the Guardians to their location.

Just then, Warbringer and the Chitauri fleet enter the atmosphere and join the battle, seeking the Power Stone for themselves. Their fleet sends Drax and the Raptor ship plummeting to the surface, which disrupts the planned execution of Commander Bakian. She and Drax resolve to dig in and defend their ground until help arrives.

The Guardians are told about Drax’s distress call but have problems of their own, as the Gardener has unleashed his massive plant-monster, Scar. The Guardians bring the fight to the Gardener, but he uses his control over vegetation to keep them at bay. Groot leaps atop his chest when he’s down and speaks to him at length, finally transferring his own life energy into him to make him realize that Loki poisoned him. Now healed and back to normal, the Collector in turn revives Groot, making him full grown again and fully articulate. As the Guardians marvel over this change, Groot turns to battle Scar.

In Madripoor, the Black Widow is attempting to lay low but Wolverine sends her a secret message, though she thought he was dead. He leaves the Space Stone for her.
