The mystery figure in the back of Marvel Comics' Infinity War: Prime #1 cover now has a name - Requiem. But with that comes the question of who they are - and its one Marvel is asking themselves in this teaser art by Frank Martin.
Whomever Requiem is, Marvel describes them as "Death Incarnate."
There was a previous Marvel character named Requiem that appeared during Chris Claremont's second run on Uncanny X-Men in 2000 as a member of the Neo. Infinity War's Requiem seems unconnected with that character.
Here's the solicitation for the first issue of Infinity Wars, a prelude issue coming in July:
