Both in the comic book series The Infinity Gauntlet and its film adaptation Avengers: Infinity Wars does Thanos

kill half the population of the universe.

Are there any differences in deaths between the two events?

I'm primarily interested in named characters that exist and are seen or referenced in both the comics and the films. I'm not interested in any other deaths than Thanos' finger snap.

  • One big difference: In comics, snap kicks half of population of the universe out of existence instantly without any disintegration effect and dust.. Also, everyone dies simultaneously. – I Love You 3000 Nov 15 '18 at 14:43

There are significant differences in the comic and movie. The snap is the instigating factor in the comic run and the snap happens almost at the end of Issue #1 when Thanos already has the fully-loaded gauntlet. There's no fight to stop him as such, just to undo the snap (Avengers 4?).

Fortunately, Cap has a recap of missing heroes (so far) in Issue #2 of The Infinity Gauntlet.. enter image description here

Other than that:

Vision

Comics - OK / MCU - Destroyed

Scarlet Witch

Comics - not snapped / MCU - snapped

Spider-man

Comics - not snapped / MCU - Snapped

Black Panther

Comics - snapped / MCU - snapped

Drax

Comics - not snapped / MCU - snapped

Dr. Strange

Comics - not snapped/ MCU - snapped

Hawkeye

Comics - snapped / MCU - not snapped (per Endgame trailer)

Nick Fury

Comics - not snapped / MCU - snapped

Nebula

Comics - not snapped / MCU - not snapped


These relate to snapped deaths etc at the start of the the comic Infinity War. That's not to say that the "currently OK" heroes don't perish during the comic IW.

    This is where Cap’s day job as an illustrator really came in handy! “The entire universe is in peril! I must assemble the remaining Avengers and put together a mood board!” – Paul D. Waite Nov 14 '18 at 17:02

    I think Hawkeye can be updated based on the Endgame trailer. – neverendingqs Dec 16 '18 at 12:46
