For the past two weeks, SYFY WIRE has been running its Infinity War Roundup, your go-to guide for everything you need to know about Marvel's massive superhero crossover, Avengers: Infinity War. Starting with Iron Man, the film that kicked off the Marvel Cinematic Universe in 2008, we’ve defined and explored the most important arcs up to this point for 42 characters.
This isn’t a catch-all, as there are bound to be plenty of surprises when Infinity War opens on April 27, and this unprecedented movie is bound to change quite a bit about the characters we know and love, as well. The 42 characters rounded up here are all important to the MCU storyline in their own ways. It’s not everyone, but it’s sure close to everyone.
Without further ado, check out these 10 articles that round up the most important info to know about 42 characters and where they are pre-Infinity War — and, as a bonus, we also catch you up on the six Infinity Stones that have woven their way into the fabric of the MCU.
