Avengers: Infinity War ★★★

Every year or two, all of Marvel’s ongoing comic-book series pause their regular stories and merge up for a “crossover,” typically to face off against a threat so huge none of the heroes could stop it on their own. The story of Avengers: Infinity War is inspired by one of the first crossovers, the 1991 miniseries The Infinity Gauntlet by Jim Starlin, George Perez, and Ron Lim. A lot of the specifics of the book have been changed for Infinity War, but its spirit is very faithful to the comic. It feels just like a comic-book crossover come to life, for better or worse.
