Thanos Grand Uncle Gets His Own Gauntlet To Kill The X-Men

In a cool reference to Thanos’ Infinity Gauntlet, Uranos the Undying just received his own gauntlet that he used to help kill the X-Men. In X-Men: Red #5 by Marvel Comics, The Mad Titan’s recently unleashed grand-uncle attacks Arakko, decimating the planet and its mutant inhabitants. The assault features Uranos pulling out his own gauntlet, which, while not powered by Infinity Stones like the Infinity Gauntlet, proves to be a more than powerful enough weapon.

In the A.X.E.: Judgment Day event from Marvel Comics, Uranos the Undying was unleashed against the mutants, as the Eternal’s new mission to wipe them out led to Druig setting free one of his most dangerous, unstable weapons. After being stuck in captivity for his genocidal ways, Uranos, the grand-uncle of Thanos, was given an hour to show much destruction he could cause to the mutants believed to be forms of excess deviation. In X-Men: Red #5, readers see the full might of Uranos’ attack on Arakko, as the villain even pulls out a gauntlet of his own, somewhat similar to the Infinity Gauntlet, in his quest to destroy the mutants.

In X-Men: Red #5 by AL Ewing, Stefano Caselli, Federico Blee, and VC’s Ariana Maher from Marvel Comics, Thanos’ grand-uncle arrives on Arakko and makes his presence known immediately. Uranos murders thousands of mutants while barely exalting any of his forces. One of the most brutal moments comes when Uranos walks through mutant gunfire towards Ora Serrata the Witness and manages to construct a gauntlet that punches and kills the mutant with a single blow.

While not worn by Uranos, the gauntlet does serious damage against Ora Serrata the Witness, as it delivers a direct hit into the giant eye. While it’s not as powerful as the Infinity Gauntlet, nor does it have the same reality-shaping power as the gauntlet worn by Uranos’ ancestor Thanos, it’s a great reference to the Mad Titan’s own similar weapon. Like his grand-nephew, Uranos used a gauntlet to help him kill thousands in the attack – showing the apple does fall too far from the tree when it comes to the previously outcast Eternals.

The gauntlet helps highlight what a threat Uranos the Undying truly is, as he wipes out the mutants on Arrako with barely using any of his armory or forces. Like Thanos, Uranos is a horrifying threat to the cosmos. Unfortunately, now that he’s unleashed, the Marvel Universe has another dangerous villain – in this case, a genocidal maniac – on the loose. God help the universe if Uranos ever gets his hands on Thanos’ Infinity Gauntlet, as he wouldn’t hesitate to end all non-Eternal life in an instant.
