Released: July 10, 1991
the first issue succeeds as the bare bones of the original “Infinity Gauntlet” plot are there: Thanos has the Gauntlet, half the population of Earth has disappeared, and the remaining superheroes need to figure out what happened and find a way to bring everyone back. The cast is streamlined down with the more iconic and well-known heroes taking center stage, while key figures in the original story like Adam Warlock, Mephisto, Dr. Strange, and the Silver Surfer are absent.
Even the heroes that remain are a different cast with memorable “Gauntlet” heroes like Captain America and Thor absent (so, no recreation of Cap standing up to Thanos, I suppose, but that’s probably for the best). In all I would rate this issue a 8/10 that’s all for this issue and as always keep your n marveling.
