A mix of new information and images from Marvel Studios' Avengers: Infinity War has been revealed as part of an Entertainment Weekly roll-out of articles and upcoming covers, including a description of Tony Stark's new Iron Man armor, a new codename for the Winter Soldier, and more. You can see all the covers over in our gallery, but for a rundown of what's new, read on.

Tony's new armor is described as "Bleeding Edge" - a name taken from comic books that was used for his nanotech armor. Like in comic books, the Bleeding Edge suit "emerges across his body from a new arc reactor and includes 'wings' on the back and arms that serve as rocket boosters into deep space."

Another comic book name coming into Infinity War is Bucky's new nickname "White Wolf." The name debuted in the stinger scene of Black Panther, and appropriately so - in comic books, White Wolf is the name of a young caucasian foreigner named Hunter who was raised in Wakanda by King T'Chaka, and who had a strained relationship with T'Challa. In Bucky's case, it seems more of an homage to the idea of a foreigner who has found a place in Wakanda - described by EW as the "front line of a battle to save the universe."

The story also confirms a few facts implied by the various trailers so far: Thanos is already in possession of the Space and Power stones (previously held by Loki and the Nova Corps, respectively), and Rhodey is back in armor despite the critical injury he suffered in Captain America: Civil War. What's more, Thor, Rocket, and Groot will all team up for a cosmic quest - possibly to retrieve Thor's new weapon, which in Hasbro's recently-revealed Infinity War toy line is named Stormbreaker, and may or may not have part of Groot as its handle.
