Just got done re-reading 'The Infinity Gauntlet' trade paperback, and I gotta say, it's weird.
Now I remember thinking it was cool when I was 14 or however old I was when I first read it, but it's kinda trippy and very, very dark. It wouldn't really make a good event because most of the stuff that the heroes do is get their butts handed to the by Thanos. That's it really some of them even die, there is a panel with Iron man's headless body. Gruesome stuff.
But the only real players in the story is Adam Warlock (who seems to know everything) and then all of earths heroes that fight Thanos and really do nothing to him. Doctor Strange and Silver Surfer have a bit more of a part, but not really.
But it gets very existential and kinda cool. Not a good event, but really different for a Marvel comic.
