MARVEL UNIVERSE: THE END (2003) #3 - Descriptive Bibliography

Plot Synopsis: Marvel Universe: The End (2003) #3
"Extinction!" is written and drawn by Jim Starlin with inks by Al Milgrom. As our humble host, Thanos, explains, the history of evolution is such that when a species develops a trait that leaves it vulnerable to attack from predators, it may thrive for awhile but is inevitably doomed to fade into non-existence. Such may be the case with humanity, as the Celestial Order has gifted the ancient Egyptian pharaoh Akhnetan with enough power to rule the Earth. The X-Men, Fantastic Four and Avengers have been destroyed, and every weapon and army on the planet has been neutralized. Shock troops of super-villains recruited to Akhnetan's side deal with the remaining costumed do-gooders. Mankind's only hopes are an odd alliance of heroes and a villain, two exiled gods and Doctor Doom, acting alone on his own lust for power.

Teaming with the Defenders and Captain Marvel, Thanos traces the source of Akhnetan's power back to the Celestial Order's home base and discovers the fabled Heart of the Universe, from which all energy physical and metaphysical emanates. As they struggle to keep from turning on themselves, they get inside the Celestial Order's base and discover the core of Akhnetan's power guarded by beings of immense strength. Meanwhile, Dr. Doom pursues a more subtle plan. Using his time travel platform, he goes back to ancient Egypt to a time before Akhnetan received the Celestial Order's gift of power. But there he finds the present-day Akhnetan there as well, guarding his human past. And Thor and Zeus find no aid from Eternity and Infinity, the cosmic embodiments of time and space, who now are cut off from the sources of their power. It's looking bleak for the Marvel Universe!
