Infinity Gauntlet #6 Synopsis by Peter Silvestro
The all-powerful Nebula faces her combined foes (though unable to see Adam Warlock) and seals Thanos in stone, taunting him over his nihilistic rule. To reverse the chaos, she wills that, with the exception of her possession of the Infinity Gauntlet, everything goes back to the way it was 24 hours earlier. Suddenly, all the vanished people of the universe are returned to their lives, all destruction is reversed, and no one retains memory of the events of this day. One thing she overlooked was that she was dead 24 hours earlier…but she remembers in time to prevent Thanos from retaking the Infinity Gauntlet. Her other oversight was that the Cosmic Beings are free and ready to do battle. While all madness breaks loose on an infinite scale, Warlock expands his soul to fill the Soul Gem and, when Nebula has defeated her foes, causes disharmony to force Nebula to remove the Gauntlet. This causes a scramble among all those present for the powerful prize and it is Warlock who obtains it and puts it on. He reverses all the new destruction and pledges himself to a wise rule of the universe.

In an epilogue, Warlock and his companions Pip the Troll and Gamora visit Thanos, living in contentment on a peaceful pastoral world.
