One week later on January 5, the publisher released a somewhat similar concept, in this case for its vertical format digital Infinity Comics imprint on its Marvel Unlimited (opens in new tab) digital platform.

Called Infinite Possibilities #1, it’s a “sneak peek at the future of Marvel Unlimited,” by artist Geoffo and colorist Dee Cunniffe.

But unlike Timeless #1, there is no framing story or narrative device, just vertical pin-ups of characters and concepts presumably receiving Infinity Comics series or one-shots in 2022.

The pin-ups are Interspersed with the proper adjectives (some very familiar to Marvel readers): Strange, Invincible, Courageous, Mysterious, Inspiring, Uncanny, Adorable, Majestic, Magnificent, Vigilant, and Chaotic.

  • Rocket and the Milano (or a ship like it)
  • America Chavez
  • Captain Marvel
  • Brute Force (no, really)
  • Hawkeye (Kate Bishop)
  • Iceman
  • Falcon
  • Wolverine (Laura)
  • Jeff the Land Shark
  • Black Panther
  • Okoye
  • Shuri

  • Howard the Duck
  • The Watcher
  • Silver Surfer
  • Scarlet Witch (in her Kevin Wada era costume)

No other details were given, but by the appearance of the recently killed Stephen Strange and costumes from previous eras on some characters like Miles Morales and Scarlet Witch, it appears Infinity Comics will not necessarily concern itself with stories set in present-day continuity but will have the run of any Marvel era.

While no digital-first or only story has qualified yet, nothing is stopping them from someday being regarded as one of the best Marvel Comics stories of all time.
