20 best superhero comics to read after Infinity War

15 of 21

7. The Eternity Saga

As a whole, Marvel properties generally don’t have an issue with mixing the fantastic and the scientific. Admittedly, in the world of comics, there’s a great heaping of fantasy science, with perhaps less for real science going on. Side note: real-life awesome astrophysicist Neil deGrasse Tyson did appear in order to counsel Superman in Action Comics #14, so it’s not a desert of actual knowledge out there.

This easy acceptance is generally a good idea, no matter how uncomfortable it might make the ultra-technological Iron Man or his pals. We could use a good deal of hand-waving when talking about the Asgardians, for example. And Doctor Strange? Forget about it. Let’s just accept that he can do magic while standing right next to Tony Stark, and move on.

The Sorcerer Supreme certainly deserves a spot on this list, as he’s one of the myriad superheroes facing off against Thanos in Avengers: Infinity War. Really, Thanos is one of those villains where you just throw everything you’ve got at him and hope that something sticks.

If Doctor Strange’s presence piques your interest, then check out The Eternity Saga. This is one great, big sprawling epic, surely deserving of the “saga” descriptor. In it, Strange jumps in and out of dimensions, often fighting Dark Dimension villain Dormammu.

This arc also features the introduction of Clea, Dormammu’s niece. She observes Strange from afar, is impressed by his aptitude, and eventually becomes Strange’s sole ally in the Dark Dimension. Eventually, the two romantically partner up according to the laws of the Dark Dimension — take notes for your own wedding or commitment ceremony.
