It's Black Cat time. Infinite Destinies was a planned Marvel Comics crossover for the last summer that never happened, because of the shutdown. It would have been made up of eight annuals, continuing a story between them, from one spotlighted character to another, and teaming established Marvel characters with more recently created characters. And it would also have brought back the Infinity Stones. Here's a list of what was planned:
- Iron Man Annual #1 with Quantum, by Jed MacKay and Ibraim Roberson
- Captain America Annual #1 with Overtime, by Gerry Duggan and Marco Castiello
- Thor Annual #1 with Spirit of Corruption
- Black Cat Annual #2 with White Fox
- Avengers Annual #1 with CLASSIFIED
- Miles Morales: Spider-Man Annual #1 with Amulet
- Guardians of the Galaxy Annual #1 with Prince of Power
- Amazing Spider-Man Annual #2 with Star
Each would have also contained a back-up story, Super-Spy vs. Super-Spy, with Nick Fury and Phil Coulson. Now, the lead writer of the Infinite Destinies crossover was Jed MacKay, who is also writing the ongoing Black Cat comic book,
Now it seems that what was planned for Infinite Destinies may be emerging elsewhere. Bleeding Cool found this page posted online, which was then deleted and we have agreed not to say where we found it.
That's the Felicia with the Infinity Gauntlet and is a scene from February's Black Cat #3. In the Black Cat ongoing series, Felicia is continuing to steal major objects from the biggest names in the Marvel Universe.

THE CAT'S OUT OF THE BAG! The Black Fox has sent Felicia and her crew to steal all kinds of items from all the ends of the Marvel U. But why? You'll only find that plan here as there is zero chance you've guessed it already. 32 PGS./Rated T+ …$3.99
Challenge accepted. Because I also get the feeling that this will tie in with the previously released Donny Cates/Nic Klein spread of the Infinity Hammer?
Could Black Cat and Infinite Destinies be pieces of a much bigger puzzle? Yes. Remember that spoiler cover image from Star #5 with an Infinity Stone?
That's another piece. As is Nina Vakueva's foreshadowed page from Black Cat #1.
That's Star coming down the stairs. And one of Black Cat's wrists has Infinity Stone-colour themed jewellery. Why not help me find more pieces?
