Infinity Gauntlet Marvel Select HC Infinity Gauntlet Marvel Select HC - Written by Jim Starlin. Art by George Perez & Ron Lim. Cover by George Perez.

For the dark Titan, Thanos, the Infinity Gauntlet was the Holy Grail - the ultimate prize to be coveted above all else.

With it came omnipotence: absolute control of all aspects of time, space, power, reality, the mind and the soul. But his gaining of supreme might meant the beginning of a dark nightmare for the entire universe.

Now, on the edge of Armageddon and led by the mysterious Adam Warlock, Earth's super heroes join in a desperate attempt to thwart this nihilistic god's insane plunge into galactic self-destruction.

Should the heroes fail, the astral gods of the universe wait to step into the fray. But in such an awesome cosmic conflict, will anyone survive?

It's one of the greatest blockbusters of all, from cosmic maestro Jim Starlin, the legendary George Perez and fan-favorite Ron Lim!

Aired: May 2, 1998 (30 minutes)


Episode Summary:
A Nova Centurion appears in a single episode. The character is unnamed but he is one of the Wanderers. The Wanderers are the survivors of the worlds destroyed by Galactus.

The plot involves the capture of the Silver Surfer by Gamora and the Wanderers. He is placed on trial for the actions of Galactus and his cosmic powers are removed. However, the device used to depower him also creates a black hole which threatens the Wanderers.

The appearance of the Nova Centurion raises an interesting question. Does it mean that, in this animated version of the Marvel Universe, Xandar was destroyed by Galactus? Or did this Nova Corps consist of various races and only this particular Centurion's race was annihilated by the Silver Surfer's master?
