*Marvel: We have the entire Infinity Trinity from the fertile mind of Jim Starlin, newly in in high grades! It all kicked off in 1991, with the Infinity Gauntlet, in which the galaxy’s most powerful piece of bling was seized by Thanos in order to impress his lady-friend, Mistress Death, by wiping out half the universe. Recovering from that little mishap, 1992’s Infinity War saw Warlock’s evil counterpart, the Magus, generating doppelgangers of the Marvel heroes who each fought their counterparts in crossovers – oh, so many crossovers – in every corner of the Marvel Universe. Fortunately, the crossovers, though boosting Marvel’s coffers at the time, proved inessential to the understanding of the series. In 1993, we were presented with the Infinity Crusade, in which Warlock’s feminine side – no, really – manifested herself as a separate entity and started luring various of Marvel’s more faith-based characters over to the dark side by playing to their spirituality, in what could be interpreted as a parody of American fundamentalism, if you think Starlin’s that clever. The Infinity concept lay fallow for a few years thereafter, but interest has been keenly piqued with the heavy-duty ‘trailing’ of Thanos and the Infinity Gems as the forthcoming ‘big bads’ in the Marvel cinematic and TV universes so jump on now before the prices spiral ever higher!
