The Infinity Stones Become Living Beings in 'Infinity Watch' Annuals

>The most coveted artifacts in the known universe have resurfaced, and this time, they’re bonded to the very bodies and souls of Marvel’s up-and-coming heroes and villains. For the Mad Titan, that just makes his hunt for them all the more sweeter.

>Across nine annuals starting with June’s THANOS ANNUAL #1, witness the latest cosmos-shattering Infinity saga as celebrated icons and new fan-favorites battle it out to contain—or control—the limitless power of the Infinity Stones in the blockbuster summer event: INFINITY WATCH. Discover what awaits in INFINITY WATCH parts four through six this July and August!

>The INFINITY WATCH crossover will be spearheaded by acclaimed writer Derek Landy (CAPTAIN AMERICA/IRON MAN). In addition to writing key chapters of the event, Landy will team up with artist Sara Pichelli on backup stories in each of the nine annuals that follow the creation and pursuit of the mysterious Death Stone-bearer who will be revealed in THANOS ANNUAL #1.

    >The saga will follow up on previous Infinity Stone stories with the return of recent bearers including Star, Overtime, Prince of Power, Quantum, and Multitude, as well as introduce you to the new Mind Stone-Bearer for the first time! As they deal with their god-like powers and mistrust from their peers, Thanos, fresh off his own dramatic transformation in Christopher Cantwell’s recent THANOS limited series, begins a bloody march to claim his dark destiny once more.

    >On crafting the latest Infinity Stones saga, Landy said, "When you write for Marvel, it's all you can hope for to add your thread to the massive tapestry of stories that has been unfolding since 1961. To be asked, then, to spearhead this next chapter is a prospect beyond my paltry imagination. I get to work on characters I've never written before—Thanos! Hulk!—and drag them into the story beside the new generation of heroes like Ms. Marvel and Spider-Boy," he continued. "Thankfully, there is absolutely no pressure because comic fans are a notoriously easy-going bunch who are prepared to forgive if—oh dear God."

      >Moon Knight Annual #1
      Isn't he dead
      Or did they accidentally spoil a twist from Blood Hunt

      Didn't we JUST have a "Infinity Stones becomes real people" event last year?

      You're thinking of Infinite Destinies which was 2021
      The whole Infinity Stone Host plotline has been going since 2019

      Yeah but something happened half way through and they didn't end up introducing a Mind Stone user in those Annuals

      And then Jed MacKay finished off that initial storyline in his Black cat solo and only ended up using 3 of them

      Looks like they've taken the time to restructure and replan the storyline they want to tell with these new Stonebearers and make them the new Infinity Watch

      And for some reason they made a Death Stone

      >Yeah but something happened half way through and they didn't end up introducing a Mind Stone user in those Annuals
      The pandemic happened which caused some of the issues to get reworked entirely (for example the Thor Annual was going to be a part of Brisson's Ghost Rider run but since it got canceled it got reworked into a standalone by Aaron Kuder)
      This along with the Death Stone is all set up for the Thanos event that Cates had teased in Thor

      surprised Spider-boy is getting an annual in this, I thought his popularity was mostly meme-localized to this board.

        Alternately it's being done for characters they feel need a boost so he's not actually popular.

      They look like the kind of characters you'd see in some kind of shitty second-tier publisher book or ad campaign from like 1994. Malibu-ass lookin' homies.

    Glad it's those MCU things and not the Infinity Gems, otherwise I'd be worried about them shitting all over Starlin's legacy.

    This is just the cosmic cube turning sentient all over again but with another macguffin, is every Marvel macguffin going to turn sentient now?

    Is the heart of the universe going to turn into a person?
