‘AVENGERS: INFINITY WAR’ Is Based on These Marvel Comics Storylines

1 – “Infinity Gauntlet” 

This is the most obvious connections between Infinity War and the comic books. Jim Starlin, George Pérez, and Ron Lim’s 1991 miniseries brought Thanos center stage in the Marvel Universe, for the story of how The Mad Titan collects the six Infinity Gems together to form the all-powerful Infinity Gauntlet.With the Gauntlet, Thanos wreaks havoc on the entire reality of the Marvel Universe, wiping out have of all life in the cosmos, and slaughtering droves of the Marvel superheroes that rose up to oppose him.

It remains to be seen if Thanos will actually unite all the MCU Infinity Stones and manifest the full power of the Gauntlet in Infinity War. But even if the film doesn’t fully follow the comic book storyline, there’s plenty of room for Avengers 4 to deliver the full cosmic mayhem from the original storyline.
