    Did the heroes fail? They sure did. However the initial failure was Marv's for not telling anyone about his illness until it was too late. When ISAAC scanned him and gave the negative prognosis Marv was likely at the Stage 4/systemic stage where the odds are not in your favor.

Right. Failures all round.

    As to Thanos coming to get Mar-Vell, I do not think that was a dream, I think Death really did send Thanos to come and get Marv and give him one last fight. Cosmic Powers Unlimited #1 has the backup story of Thanos restoring Mar-Vell via the Reality Gem.

    Marv states that it was Thanos that helped Marv accept Death and that he was resolved to being dead and that he didn't want a second chance. he also talked Thanos out of his plan to use the gem for warp things so Death would love him. Thanos agrees and sends Marv back to death.

I've never read those books. But when you're using something as undefined as a 'reality gem', I'd have to question: Whose reality? Was it 'reality', or was it Thanos' version of reality? If you can warp reality, anything's possible.

At the time of that story, there was the series Warlock and the infinity Watch series. It occurred after Infinity Gauntlet and Warlock was ordered by the Living Tribunal to disperse the infinity gems to guardians so that the infinity Gauntlet could no longer be used.

Warlock of course kept the Soul Gem, Pip the Troll got the space gem, Moondragon the mind gem, Gamora the Time Gem and Drax got the power gem.

But there was the question of who Warlock gave the reality gem to. Warlock kept that confidential for awhile, but it turned out to be THANOS since Thanos was of course familiar with the gems and understood the dangers of the reality gem.

The Reality Gem can warp reality on a level far greater then the cosmic cubes. Thanos was rejected by Death and feeling very tempted to use the Gem to warp reality so that Death would always have loved him. However he wanted to test the gem and wanted a conscience to talk him out of the plan so he uses it to legitimately revive Captain Mar-Vell.

Mar-Vell instantly divined via cosmic awareness what Thanos was up to and talked him out of the plan and talked him into sending him back to the hereafter. Thanos aborts the plan and sends Marv back to Death.
