Renowned comic creator Jim Starlin tells the final tale of the Marvel Universe, bringing the entirety of creation to its startling climax! A grave threat from beyond space and time swiftly approaches Earth - imperiling the very nature of the entire universe! This catastrophic, existence-ending event forces Earth's Mightiest Heroes and villains to join forces to fend off Armageddon. But amid ever-shifting alliances and internally warring factions, will they succeed in their quest to save all of eternity? Led by the demigod Thanos (who is admittedly not only quite mad, but something of a continual threat himself to both Earth and eternity), Earth's superhumans must stand shoulder-to-shoulder to face the most terrifying threat they've ever encountered: nothing less than the end of all that ever was! COLLECTING: MARVEL UNIVERSE: THE END 1-6.… (more)

Like with nearly everything I've seen of Starlin after his initial (and brilliant) Warlock work, this looks good (as his art is always fun) but the writing is the weak point. It starts out fascinating and with loads of potential but peters out into the same mindless slugfest, massive overblown and disappointing "climax," and the closing scene that erases all by fiat into "what you read doesn't mean a thing as it all just goes back to the status quo."

In other words, Thanos gets omnipotence but is hampered by the lack of omnipotence by his creative team...just as it has been the 3 or 4 other times Starlin's walked him down the same road. ( )

Kind of bloated and silly. ( )
