What Are The Main Conflicts In Marvel’s Infinity Crossover?

There are three main conflicts ongoing throughout the Infinity story, these conflicts intertwine with each other and that keeps you interested in events throughout the whole story.

    The Avengers against the Builders

This was the conflict that had already begun at the start of Infinity. The majority of the Avengers are already fighting the Builders with their galactic allies, the Galactic Council including the Kree and the Spartoi races.

The Builders are so powerful that the Avengers have to join forces with all the alien empires within the universe to have any hope of winning. The threat of the Builders meant forming an alliance with recent foes the Skrulls.

During the fighting the Avengers show the Galactic Council what they are capable of doing. Other comics are represented by Gladiator from X Men, Kree from Fantastic Four, and Spartoi is from Guardians of Galaxy

    The Illuminati Group

The members of the Illuminati Group are Black Panther, Iron Man, Mr Fantastic, Namor, Dr Strange, Beast and Black Bolt. This group are tasked with stopping any attacks on the Earth whilst the rest of the Avengers are fighting the Builders.

Black Bolt, Black Panther and Iron Man have to lead the fight against Thanos and his forces. The Mad Titan sets his new generals, the Black Order or Cull Obisidian against Earth.

The main part of the storyline is spread across the Avengers and New Avengers series and were written by Hickman. There were more parts to the story told as Crossovers in other comics, and it was also included in the new Mighty Avengers.

It is during such times of danger that the greatest minds among the superheroes get together to find ways to avoid disaster and to win in the end.

    The fight to stop Thanos

The third fight is against Thanos and his forces, who attack Earth to find and take back the infinity gems. The titan had assumed that it would be much easier to do so with most of the Avengers away.

The Builders presented Thanos with the chance he had been waiting for to attack Earth as he knew it now had weaker defensive cover. He had been watching the planet closely ever since the Illuminati had used the Infinity Gauntlet.

Besides the infinity gems, Thanos goes to Earth to track down any of his children who were already there. He kills all the offspring is able to locate. That information was provided in the Thanos Rising story.
