Thanos' Big 2012 Continues with AVENGERS ASSEMBLE, Reprints

Avengers Assemble

#7 cover.

The year of Thanos looks to be continuing in September, with Marvel announcing reprints Tuesday of two key stories starring the character, plus more from his current role in ongoing series Avengers Assemble.

Thanos: The

Final Threat cover.

Both Thanos: The Final Threat #1 — containing 1977's Avengers Annual #7 and Marvel Two-In-One Annual #2, from that same year — and Thanos Quest #1, a two-issue 1990 miniseries, are getting reprints in a one-shot format. Thanos creator Jim Starlin wrote all of the above stories, and illustrated both tales in The Final Threat. Ron Lim illustrated Thanos Quest, before drawing subsequent Thanos stories like Infinity Gauntlet (second half), Infinity War and Infinity Crusade.

Andy Park's Thanos concept art for The Avengers movie will be featured as the cover to the Thanos Quest reprint.


September's Avengers Assemble #7 also features Thanos, and here's Marvel's official description: "Finally – don’t miss out as Thanos deals the Avengers a mighty blow in the pages of Avengers Assemble #7 by the chart topping creative team of Brian Michael Bendis and Mark Bagley! Thanos has his sights set on Earth, and it’s Mightiest Heroes so it will be up to the Avengers AND the Guardians of the Galaxy to band together and save the Marvel Universe! But will it be enough?"
