There’s some good news and bad news for the characters in the Marvel Universe. While they are currently fighting the symbiote “god” Knull in King in Black, the good news is it looks like they will be surviving that battle. The bad news is the Infinity Stones are coming back. That likely won’t be a good thing.
The Infinity Stones have made their way back, and some of them have already been seen over recent months. Marvel is unleashing them once again in June’s Infinite Destinies. This story will take place over eight annuals and conclude in Infinity Score, which will be a “game-changing” arc in the pages of Black Cat.
