Infinity War #1 Synopsis by Peter Silvestro
In his retirement, Thanos detects energy emanations that indicate the universe is in grave peril; he follows the energy signal to a fortress in space where he finds the Magus, an evil variant of Adam Warlock. An arrogant Magus revels that he has a scheme for conquering the universe and sends Thanos back to his own reality to warn Warlock. Meanwhile, Galactus has discovered Eternity in a catatonic state and sets out to find the party responsible; his way blocked by mystical barriers, he recruits Dr. Strange as an ally. Doctor Doom has also detected the energy emanations and, seeing an opportunity to expand his power, enlists the aid of Kang the Conqueror, who has the technology he needs to locate the source. On Earth, various heroes, including Spider-Man, Wolverine, Iron Man and Reed Richards, are attacked by evil doppelgangers. Afterward, Reed contacts all the Earth heroes he can find to deal with a threat to the universe.
