The God wiki last edited by X35 on 05/17/13 05:34AM View full history

For Thanos, the Infinity Gauntlet was the ultimate prize to be coveted above all else. With it came omnipotence. Now it's up to Earth's super heroes to make a desperate attempt to thwart this mad god's insane plunge into galactic self-destruction.

Thanos is contemplating what is to be done now that he has the power of god. He finds that the answer is quite simple - anything he wants.

Silver Surfer has crash landed in the home of Doctor Strange. He tells him the events that have transpired and hopes that it is not too late.

Thanos goes to Death to seek her love and approval. With every attempt, she shows her disdain and turns her back to him. He cannot understand why she will not return his love. He creates a giant shrine to her honor, with two chairs for them to sit in an rule all of the universe. Still, she remains uninterested.

He resurrects Nebula, creating a half alive half dead version of her in another attempt for Death's affection. She still is unimpressed. He then discovers that maybe she is spurned that he has not fulfilled his vow to destroy half the population of the universe. With one snap of his fingers, he makes it so.

All over the universe half the life on any given planet disappears, human and animal alike. This is noticed widely by Spider-Man, Captain America, Hulk and SHIELD on Earth as well as by Empress S'byll of the Kree Empire and by the Eternals on Titan. Some close to them have disappeared as well, such as Sersi, Hawkeye, Mentor and Wong.

Silver Surfer senses all this death and to him it is just too much to bear.

The opening to the core Infinity Gauntlet limited series is somewhat of an exposition heavy story, however it is handled quite expertly by Jim Starlin's script and George Perez's masterful pencils. Silver Surfer crash lands into the abode of Dr. Strange and fills us in on some of the back story: Thanos has gotten the Infinity Gauntlet and now has the power of a god. Thanos is spending his time trying to smooth things over with Death. Some of the best dialogue is between Thanos, Mephisto, and Dea...
