I am following the cosmic Marvel story Infinity Wars and #3 came out today. SPOILERS at the end of #2 Gamora had gathered all 6 stones together and reunited with her aspect that was trapped in the Soul Stone.
In #3 we see what she does with the stones. Loki shows up warns here about another universe where the heroes are fighting desperately against an unknown threat. He says he saw it in the God Quarry. She leaves to investigate the Quarry. But to prevent people from following and to keep the monster in the Soul Realm busy she creates a new world in the soul realm called Warp World and throws the heroes into it after she combines them.
“Your father once cut the number of souls in the universe by half,” Loki points out, “and now you have done the exact same thing. But much more creatively, of course.”
She tosses Loki in after them
If you read the upcoming solicitations you know there are one shots coming out with the combined characters called Infinity Warps.Cap/Dr Strange, Thor/Iron Man, Ghost rider/Black Panther, were among the ones trying to stop Gamora and got combo’ed for their trouble. In a happy coincidence (done for possibly marketing purposes) Moon Knight pops in and gets stuck with Spider-Man. To make it less a sausage fest, Duggan combos Scarlet Witch and X-23 for the ladies.
the best part is when Loki goes looking for help against the Soul Stone monster, He ends up at Xaviers school and meets Doopool and Logan Frost
The issue is almost entirely expository but is amusing none the less. Duggan is writing a captivating story and combined with Asgardians of the Galaxy which came out last week, Marvel Cosmic is headed back to where it was when the second iteration of GotG came out: some out of the world humor, bizarre ideas, and just enough danger to keep things tense.
