Infinity Gauntlet #4 Review by (February 15, 2010)
Though all of the Earth heroes are destroyed in this issue, it isn’t clear how the Hulk meets his end. He is last seen leaping away (or being knocked away) from a giant Thanos but appears otherwise unharmed. Other pencilers: George Perez. Other inkers: Bruce Golotoff. Other colorists: Ian Laughlin.


Synopsis / Summary / Plot

Infinity Gauntlet #4 Synopsis by Peter Silvestro
The heroes arrive at the space shrine to confront Thanos. Mephisto suggests to Thanos that it would impress Mistress Death if the contest were not so one-sided so Thanos agrees to limit his knowledge so that he cannot foresee his opponents’ moves. The battle begins and the Earth heroes, while putting up a valiant effort, are vanquished one by one. When the only foe remaining is Captain America, and Thanos raises this fist to deal the death blow, Adam Warlock gives the signal and Silver Surfer speeds toward them to seize the Infinity Gauntlet from his hand—and misses. Thanos, having eliminated all his foes, wills himself back to full power. Warlock moves on to the greater phase of his plan: the Cosmic Beings attack.
