Thanos' henchmen, known collectively in the comics as the Black Order and in the film as the "Children of Thanos", include Terry Notary as Cull Obsidian, Tom Vaughan-Lawlor as Ebony Maw, Carrie Coon as Proxima Midnight, and Michael James Shaw as Corvus Glaive. The foursome provided voices and motion-capture performances on set for their characters. As Coon was pregnant during filming, she mainly did facial capture for Proxima Midnight with some motion-capture, with stuntwoman Monique Ganderton standing-in and providing the rest on set. Ebony Maw's look was inspired by the Marvel Comics character Mephisto, who appeared in the Infinity Gauntlet storyline.

The series was a top seller for Marvel during publication and was followed by two immediate sequels, The Infinity War (1992) and The Infinity Crusade (1993). The story's events continued to be referenced in other Marvel comics for decades. The Infinity Gauntlet remained popular among fans, warranting multiple reprint editions and merchandise, with its themes and plot elements adapted into video games and animated cartoons. Most notable among later adaptions was the "Infinity Saga" of the Marvel Cinematic Universe, which incorporated elements of the original comic story into a saga that spanned across almost two dozen connected films.
George Pérez is a popular artist known for drawing comics featuring large casts. He came to prominence in the 1970s while working on Marvel's The Avengers before leaving the company to work for DC on comics such as New Teen Titans, Crisis on Infinite Earths, and Wonder Woman. In 1984, Pérez entered into an exclusive contract with DC.
Unlike other crossovers such as Armageddon 2001 (the competing 1991 crossover from DC Comics) which featured tie-ins from a large majority of their publisher's comics, The Infinity Gauntlet only had tie-ins from titles which were obviously connected to the event or from series which needed a boost in sales. According to Pérez, Marvel's stance toward the tie-ins for its low-selling titles was "do it or else". Starlin remained uninvolved, allowing writers to choose for themselves which story elements they wished to use.
The Infinity Gauntlet was an instant success and became one of the most influential storylines in comics from the 1990s. Both of the nationwide comic distributors at the time (Diamond Distribution and Capital City Distribution) reported each issue was one of their top ten sellers for the month of its release. When Capital City released their top 100 best selling single issues of 1991, Infinity Gauntlet issues fell between the 42nd and 64th positions. Aside from the first issue of The Punisher War Zone, all of the higher ranked entries were issues of Spider-Man, Robin II: The Joker's Wild!, or the X-Men franchise. Wizard, a comic magazine known for embracing speculation in the comic market, listed The Infinity Gauntlet #1 as the ninth "Hottest Book" in September 1991, and two lead-in issues of Silver Surfer were ranked sixth and tenth. The first issue's resale value rose above its $2.50 cover price in the back issue market, plateauing around $9 or $10 in late 1992.[note 5]
By the end of the decade, interest in the continuing story dwindled, with sequels poorly received by fans, and Warlock and the Infinity Watch canceled in 1995. The same year, Marvel moved the Infinity Gems from their main continuity to an alternate universe called the Ultraverse, a property Marvel acquired when it bought Malibu Comics. The Ultraverse comics were then canceled in 1996. By 1998, Wizard was no longer listing Infinity Gauntlet in its monthly price guide. The first edition of the paperback collection saw its last printing in 1999.
Aside from its immediate spin-off and sequels, the events of The Infinity Gauntlet have impacted storylines in later comics, including Thanos in 2003, Avengers (vol. 4) in 2011, and Secret Wars in 2016. Several of these later stories have downplayed the power of the gauntlet, often showing someone possessing it being beaten by a more powerful opponent.
During initial publication, Tenacity Incorporated offered a licensed black T-shirt featuring cover artwork from the series. It was available exclusively through ads placed in Marvel comics. The front side had the cover artwork from issue four, and the back had the cover artwork from issue three.
Tony engages in a final stand against Thanos to prevent him from getting the Time Stone from Strange. He shoots a nanotech gauntlet constraint at Thanos to immobilize the Gauntlet, and he fires his Micro-Missiles at him, where the smoke remains for long enough to distract him from Tony's charge. Tony flies in and uses his Foot Thruster hitting Thanos generating energy blast at the moment of impact, bouncing off, making back-flip and deploying Foot Clamps to stabilize his footing on landing. He then deploys his Battering Rams to blow Thanos away. Thanos recovers and tears off his helmet and punches Tony down, not before the armor forms a new helmet (Punch was strong enough to rip off the armor layer of the left side of the face plate). Thanos rips the constraint off and fires power stone energy projection at Tony, who withstands it with his Nano Shield (the projection is strong enough to destroy a planet) long enough for Tony to fly out the beam's way. Tony charges at Thanos and traps his left arm along with the infinity gauntlet with his foot clamp, and using the momentum to add more power to his energy mallet, producing another, smaller energy blast which manages to make a cut on the Mad Titan's face. Thanos breaks free of the clamp and proceeds to punch Tony (Tony tries, but fails to block the punches) several times in the face in quick succession smashing left side of the faceplate off, he lifts Tony and fires a blast from the power stone and blasting him away, shattering even more of the suit in the process. Tony attempts to hold Thanos off with his right arm's repulsor, meanwhile he redirects his left leg nanoparticles to his left arm to have left arm repulsor, but to no avail as Thanos strikes Tony's damaged helmet, completely shattering it. With his armour heavily damaged and out of spare nano-particles, Tony matches Thanos' punch, and attempts to stab him, by shifting his left arm nano-particles to his right gauntlet and creating a katar. Thanos catches the gauntlet with katar formed, rips it off and stabs Tony back. Thanos acquires the Time Stone from Strange in exchange for Tony's life. Tony seals the wound with his Medical Suture Spray. It is concluded that the Armor is heavily damaged and can't be used for any more combat or other tasks. The armor returns into the Arc Reactor and forms his jacket. This is the last time it is seen in the film.
