Discard any defeated Heroes and/or Villains (those with Damage Counters equal to their Damage capacity). Replace defeated Heroes and/or Villains from the Deployment Zone with cards from the Asset Deck. Set defeated characters aside to keep track of end game conditions.
Place any collected Infinity Stones (those with 5 counters) in the Gauntlet and flip over the corresponding card.
After recruiting Heroes and attacking Villains, the active player collects their Team Deployment Token, as they return to the safety of their base, and it is the next player’s turn, proceeding clockwise
Play continues with the next active player deploying their team, rolling the Infinity Stone and Thanos Dice as Thanos advances his plots and schemes, then their team’s Power Dice, as they attempt to recruit Heroes and defeat Villains.
