It's the final battle for the Infinity Gauntlet, and with it...control of the universe. Who's left standing and what becomes of the universe in the conclusion to this blockbuster Marvel event.
Thanos and the remaining heroes face off against Nebula who now has possession of the Infinity Gauntlet. She uses the power she now has to transform the universe back to the way it was twenty four hours ago. All of Thanos' death and destruction has been undone. Some of those returning to life have no recollection of the events that have transpired, some feel like something is not right and others remember the events in full detail. She herself is transformed back into the horrible creature Thanos turned her into.
But as Warlock reahes for the gaunlet she regains her power. The cosmic beings unleash their fury upon her. Warlock has a plan now that the gauntlet is in less experienced hands. He and the Silver Surfer return to the Soul World where Warlock becomes at one with the universe of the soul gem.
Nebula manages to turn the cosmic beings into stone. Warlock manages to reach out to the other gems and the gauntlet separates from Nebula. It is now an all out battle to retrieve the fallen gauntlet and Earth's heroes stop Thanos from obtaining it again. The guantlet comes into the hands of Adam Warlock.
Rather than face imprisonment, Thanos chooses to blow himself up with a thermal nuclear device. Adam Warlock claims himself the true possessor of the Infinity Gems and that he will be a just god. He transports himself, Gamora and Pip to two months in the future on a unnamed planet. They go to visit Thanos, who claims that three failures at such a scope are enough for him and he will live out a quiet life to reflect on the lessons of the past.
