    I love advanced copies.


    You all know the routine: SOME SPOILERS AHOY!

    This issue takes place before Civil War was a though in Marveldoms mind and Hulk wasnt on a rampage. It picks up from the She-Hulk arc where Titania was given one of the Infinity Gems (Power) to take on She-Hulk (didnt help her that much... I read that She-Hulk arc). She-Hulk gave Reed the gem for safe keeping and low and behold he managed to find half of the gems AND the Gauntlet. He convinced the Illuminati (Heh... MINOR SPOILER: He kinda tosses it in their laps) to locate the last 3 gems: Time, Reality, and Mind (Reed somehow recovered the Soul, Power, and Space gems).

    Thats is as far as I'm gonna go.

    You guys are gonna have to read it to see what happens.

    *goes back to re-read it again*

    Yeah, the last page sets up a potential Earth shattering story that makes the Civil War and House of M look like crap by compairison. (not that it's hard to do)

    Reed Richards with the Infinity Gauntlet is probably the worst thing that could happen.

    Thanks for posting spoilers...looks like I have to rush to my comic shop after work...but I remembered that the due to a ruling by the Living Tribunal, the Infinity Gems aren't allowed to work as "one" but can only be used by individuals?

    Niiiiice.

    I was a little wary about thins series after the first issue, but this was good. An explanation of how Reed came across the other two gems would have been nice, but it didn't really hurt the story at all. I really liked this issue.

    I do have a question though. I thought each of the gems were being guarded by Warlock and his buddies. Did they ever explain why that isn't the case any more?

    Finally read the comic today and it was so cool! Loved the part with how Black Bolt was used (don't want to spoil for those who haven't read the comic yet)...he sure is a powerhouse!

    What's the story behind this series? This group met up in the past and decided important events in the Marvel timeline?
