Marvel’s newest artwork hints at the resurgence of Hela as the formidable villain equipped with a potent weapon. The cover for “Thor” #35, revealed by artist Nic Klein, showcases the Queen of Hel wearing a black gauntlet that houses the much-anticipated seventh Infinity Stone, the Black Stone. This depiction accentuates how Hela poses a significant challenge to Thor’s search for explanations regarding his ominous visions.
In the ongoing series of the God of Thunder, Thor has been haunted by visions of his own death, courtesy of the Black Winter. These visions portray Thor’s ultimate stand against an undead army led by Thanos. Surprisingly, Thanos does not wield his typical Infinity Gauntlet but instead wears a black gauntlet that contains the enigmatic Black Infinity Stone. Moreover, he wields a Mjolnir adorned with the other Infinity Stones, adding to the gravity of the situation.
Thor strives to avert the ominous fate that looms before him, delving deeper into the Black Stone’s mysteries that have ties to his grandfather, Bor. When Corvus Glaive abducts Thor’s sister, Laussa, Thor ventures into a forbidden sector of Asgard, where he unearths Bor’s use of the Galactus Seed in his confrontation with Thanos, leading to the creation of the elusive seventh Infinity Stone. Marvel now teases what lies ahead in Thor’s quest, as a preview of “Thor” #35 unveils Hela’s comeback, wielding the Black Stone and a gauntlet of her own.

Answers to the Mystery of the Black Stone Finally Revealed for Marvel Fans
Marvel has kept fans waiting for a long time to uncover the secrets behind Thanos and his Infinity Mjolnir, both empowered by the Black Stone.
