Who’s the better villain, Thanos or Darkseid? We set out to answer the question by reading “Infinity Gauntlet” by Jim Starlin. This classic of the genre inspired so many future universe-wide comic book events as Thanos grabs ultimate power and utterly succeeds at dominating the Avengers and the rest of existence. It’s powerful stuff, if you have the whimsy for it. We talk about the great pencil work, Thanos’ retirement, and why “event” comics just don’t feel like this anymore.
