Marvel fans may have to wait a year for the next installment of The Avengers, but that hasn’t stopped artist Steven Vasilev, also known as Zaptio on Instagram, from creating a unique Gucci-themed Infinity Gauntlet.

When the number of living things in the universe becomes greater than the number who have died, Mistress Death asks Thanos to correct the imbalance by killing half of the universe. The Silver Surfer learns of this and opposes him, so Thanos fakes his own death to proceed without interference. During his research Death’s realm for the most efficient way to complete this task, Thanos discovers that the six Infinity Gems, powerful objects he had previously used as weapons, can grant their owner more power than he had understood before. Each one has control over one facet of the universe – Space, Time, Reality, Mind, Soul, and Power. He traverses the universe collecting them, adding them to his left gauntlet. He visits Death once the Infinity Gauntlet was assembled in hopes that she’ll now talk to him as an equal, but instead, she continues to speak to him through an intermediary because he is now her superior.
