We get a few more details about Jim Starlin's Thanos: Infinity Revelation in that the 100-page OGN will feature parallel universes and will see Thanos take on the Silver Surfer and The Annihilators.
Speaking with Marvel.com, Starlin offered some new details:
We're going into parallel universes in this story, which is something I haven't really touched on before. It's about what you would make of a world if you had the opportunity to make a world. It also moves Thanos on a little bit further. At the end of the story, he's at a whole different space and place than he was at the beginning. It's fun to come along and move his tale along again.
And on The Annihilators:
Yes, they make an appearance. Thanos also rekindles his association with Adam Warlock, even though he's dead. That's never a hindrance. The Guardians of the Galaxy also have a cameo. You'll see Ronan, Gladiator, Beta Ray Bill. Ikon and Quasar. The Silver Surfer comes in with them. Funny story, actually. Walt Simonson was very instrumental in my coming back to Marvel. Halfway through this story, Thanos has a confrontation with the Annihilators, and I started feeling terrible because I was treating Beta Ray Bill so badly. I knew I'd be seeing [Walt] in Baltimore in a few days, and I didn't know what to do about it. The only consolation I had when I finally talked to him was to say, "I treat Ronan a lot worse."
They're dealing with Thanos. Everybody gets beat up. He doesn't play too gently. Ronan has it the worst though. That said it's mainly Thanos' and Adam Warlock's story.
Starlin also hints in part where the OGN takes place within Marvel continuity:
I've set it somewhere after the INFINITY series, so you'll see Corvus [Glaive] and the Outriders in little cameo appearances.
"Thanos: Infinity Revelation" hits later this year.
