Infinity Gauntlet #3 Synopsis by Peter Silvestro
Earth scientists discover that Thanos’ cosmic attack has pushed Earth out of its orbit giving a greater urgency to the mission. Doctor Strange summons Earth’s leading heroes, including a reluctant Hulk, to form a team to stop Thanos. The first problem is when Doctor Doom demands to lead the force and, under the pressure of the assembled heroes, grudgingly relents. Adam Warlock and the Silver Surfer head into space to recruit an even more powerful set of allies, the great Cosmic Beings, some of whom decline to participate but most agree to cooperate (Galactus is very hard to convince to follow a mortal’s leading).

Back on Earth, Warlock secretly meets with Hulk and Wolverine and asks them, should they get the opportunity, to kill Thanos. Meanwhile Thanos, frustrated with Mistress Death’s unresponsive attitude, creates for himself a more suitable consort, Terraxia the Terrible, and waits for the confrontation he knows is coming. Warlock has briefed the assault force on the plan of attack, and aided by Dr. Strange’s protective spells, the team is transported to battle with Thanos while Warlock and the Surfer take up a position to observe.
