ISSUE : The Thanos Quest/1/????
Jim Starlin/Ron Lim/John Beatty
Thanos is back from the dead thanks to Mistress Death. Gazing into the Infinity Well he discovers that the six Soul Gems hide the biggest secret in the Universe. Without revealing it to Mistress Death, Thanos convinces her to allow him to start his search promising to the end the imbalance of number of living beings versus the number of dead. The first gem he wants is the Soul Gem (once owned by Adam Warlock and with his soul still inside). The gem is owned by the In-Betweener, now being punished by Lord Chaos and Master Order in between their universes. Thanos promises his freedom in exchange for the Gem. The In-Betweener accepts, but as soon as he has his freedom, he changes his mind about the gem. He soon realizes that Lord Chaos and Master Order placed him there because his powers are minimal there. Thanos then tells him that he should worry more about his masters who are on the way now that they know he’s been freed. Thanos then teleports away leaving the In-Betweener to suffer the rage of his masters. The second gem Thanos looks for is the Power Gem. He goes to the planet Tamarata, where he meets the Champion (one of the Elders of The Universe). Thanos defeats him by appearing to use brawn and then outsmarting Champion. As Champion levels a planet, Thanos swoops in and makes a deal with Champion to drop him off at the closest planet for the Gem. Champion agrees so he doesn’t end up floating in space for eternity. Later, Thanos literally drops him off as per his agreement. The power of the first two gem increases Thanos’ powers. When he meets the Gardener (another Elder) he easily uses them to win the Time Gem.

ISSUE The Thanos Quest/2/????
Jim Starlin/Ron Lim/John Beatty
The Collector (one of the Elders) is admiring his collection, when he gets a message from Thanos proposing to exchange the Collector’s gem with something really unique. He accepts the exchange. Thanos promises to deliver the unique object. He then goes to meet the Runner (another Elder) and explains to him that the gem are what remains of the Soul of a God who decided to put an end to its own existence, and that together they can make the owner a God himself. When the Runner thinks to be the winner of the fight, Thanos, with the help of the Time Gem, easily defeats him by aging, and then regressing him to a baby. Thanos takes the Space Gem off the Runner’s brow. Then Thanos goes to the Collector and exchanges the baby-Runner with the Reality Gem. The Collector is enthusiastic about having an Elder in the collection and agrees quickly. As Thanos leaves, he tells the Collector that his spell is temporary and that the Runner will revert. No sooner is that said, that the Runner reverts and becomes very agitated towards the Collector and they begin fighting. Thanos leaves. The last gem is owned by the Grandmaster (leader of the Elders), the most powerful of the gem owners. Thanos transports to the planet where the Grandmaster challenges Thanos to a mental battle in one of his games. The Grandmaster places the gem in a stasis field that will only be removed upon the loss of one of the participants. They both sit a table and place their virtual helmets on. They fight on a mental field and the Grandmaster cheats by sabotaging Thanos’ weapons. He thinks to have defeated Thanos, but discovers it is a robot. The real Thanos transports down and destroys the virtual helmet machine leaving the Grandmaster trapped inside, and his shell of a body, a vegetable forever. Thanos has won the sixth gem, the Mind Gem. Now Thanos is a God and he can sit at the side of the Death. But she still refuses to talk to him. Now he is superior to her. Thanos is still alone, but he is an omnipotent God.
