Marvel Studios’ “Avengers: Infinity War” thrilled moviegoers this past spring and soared to record-smashing box office success. And at San Diego Comic-Con 2018, Entertainment Earth is celebrating the source material behind the Marvel Cinematic Universe’s crown jewel.
In 1991, Marvel Comics published The Infinity Gauntlet, a six-issue series scripted by Jim Starlin and drawn by George Pérez and Ron Lim. This cosmic clash between life and death was a crowd-pleasing crossover. It featured a “who’s who” of Marvel heroes desperately fighting to stop Thanos, the ultimate nihilist, from destroying half the universe.
The series won instant acclaim as a modern Marvel classic. It set a new and astonishingly high standard for all comic book events to come, with its ambitious scope, compelling antihero, and emotional impact.
The Infinity Gauntlet Pin Mate™ Wooden Collectibles Set of 16 – Convention Exclusive brings together many of The Infinity Gauntlet‘s colorful cast, each as a fully decorated, solid wood Pin Mate™ about 2-inches tall (with some notable exceptions).
Many of these heroes made the transition from the original comic to this year’s movie: Vision (Pin Mate™ number G02), Doctor Strange (G04), Iron Man (G05), Hulk (G07 – Dr. Banner’s alter ego measures an incredible 4-inches tall), Thor (G10), Drax (G15 – also a big guy at 3-inches tall), Captain America (G16), and Spider-Man (G17).
But you’ll also find champions who fought the good fight in print only: Quasar, Protector of the Universe (G03); super powered space cop Nova (G06); trouble-prone teleporter Pip the Troll (G08 – small but fierce at 1 3/4-inches tall); Adam Warlock (G09), who led the charge against Thanos in the comic; Namor the Sub-Mariner (G11); She-Hulk (G14 – a half-inch taller than most of her fellow Super Heroes); and Cloak, living portal to the Darkforce Dimension (G19).
Of course, this spectacular set couldn’t be complete without the Mad Titan himself (G20). Measuring 3-inches tall, Thanos is packaged on the reverse of the deluxe, fully illustrated window box in his memorable and mocking “Come and get me!” pose from the cover of The Infinity Gauntlet #4. For their part, the Avengers and their compatriots are packed in a recreation of issue #3’s instantly iconic “Call to Arms” cover. The box’s front, with its large illustration of the Infinity Gauntlet, evokes artwork gracing several of the storyline’s collected editions.
This beautiful box and its fantastic contents already make this set a fitting centerpiece for any collection of Marvel memorabilia, but you’ll want to fill those last three empty blister slots with the Gold Series Marvel’s Mutants Pin Mates™ Wooden Collectibles Set of 3 – Convention Exclusive (sold separately).
In addition to the Super Heroes above, Wolverine (Pin Mate™ number G18) and Cyclops (G13) joined Scarlet Witch (G12) in the battle against Thanos in The Infinity Gauntlet comic. All three of these heroes who fight for a world that fears them are on hand here, garbed in their distinctive 1990s costumes.
