INFINITY COUNTDOWN / INFINITY WARS (2018) | Complete Event Reading Order/Checklist







Infinity Countdown is an event that leads into the Infinity Wars event.

Official Synopsis 

The Infinity Stones. Individually, they grant their wielders great power. Together, they grant the power of a god. Once thought lost, the Infinity Stones have re-formed and are scattered throughout the universe...and as their locations are discovered, forces converge for a battle that will set the universe down a dark path...to the end!

Back during the Time Runs Out storyline, the Infinity Gems were destroyed during the Incursion that affected the Multiverse. When the Multiverse is restored by Mister Fantastic, it enabled the Infinity Gems to be restored. When the Space Gem was the first to manifest, it was targeted by the Frost Giant Snarr on Loki's behalf. He was killed by a somehow-revived Wolverine who claimed the Space Gem.

The Mind Gem was later found by Turk Barrett who used it for his own personal gain.

A giant-sized version of the Power Gem appeared on the desert planet Xitaung. After its discovery, the Guardians of the Galaxy and the Nova Corps work together to guard it.

Captain Marvel later found the Reality Gem in an adjacent unidentified reality.

It was discovered that the Time Gem restored the planet Sakaar. While Amadeus Cho's Hulk form was fighting the Warlord, the Time Gem was unearthed by Super-Skrull who planned to use it to restore the Skrull Empire to its former glory.

The universe-shaking event of 2018 is here!
