Scrooge McDuck is making his grand comeback in a new collaboration between Marvel and Disney. A new one-shot comic will reimagine the character’s introduction from Christmas on Bear Mountain while taking the character through the multiverse on a grand adventure.

Uncle Scrooge and the Infinity Dime will be written by veteran Marvel writer Jason Aaron, who you’ll recognize from his work on Avengers vs X-Men, Thanos Rising, and other iconic stories. The comic will be illustrated by Paolo Mottura, Francesco D’Ippolito, and Vitale Mangiatordi.

In it, Scrooge will have to stop a variant of his from becoming the “incomprehensibly rich” Scrooge-Above-All. Marvel teases that we’ll see many different takes on the character throughout his journey, perhaps through the use of variants. Of course, no Scrooge story is complete without an appearance from his loveable nephew Donald. Other characters like Huey, Duey, Louie, and Gyro Gearloosewill also appear in the comic.

"As far as I'm concerned, there's no disputing the fact that Uncle Scrooge is one of the absolute greatest characters in the history of comics,” said Aaron.

“And I don't just mean comics that feature talking animals. I mean all comics ever, bar none. Uncle Scrooge's rich, action-packed history includes some of the most exciting adventure comics ever created, by legendary creators like Carl Barks and Don Rosa. It's one of the most mind-staggering thrills of my career to get to craft this epic cosmic adventure for the World's Richest Duck, one that looks to honor the character's legendary history while taking him to some wild, new, unexplored places in the way that only Marvel can deliver."

"No puns intended but I felt like we hit the jackpot when we learned we were doing a Scrooge McDuck comic!" said Marvel editor Mark Paniccia. "This is a truly historic collaboration of two mighty entertainment giants and the talent on this book is solid gold! Jason’s script is full of heart and humor with lots of action and some unexpected twists! The art team is delivering classic Disney magic and the enthusiasm our cover artists have displayed has been nothing short of incredible."

The title of the comic refers to the Infinity Gauntlet, an accessory that Thanos has used in the comics as well as the last two Avengers movies. Don't be surprised to see Scrooge get his hands on the iconic gauntlet, and maybe even face off against the Mad Titan on his adventure.
