Re: Who should be the villain in an Avengers sequel? (Poll)
It's probably the best comic book event Marvel has ever done.
Main gist of it is, Annihilus, who is Lord of the Negative Zone brings his army to the 616 universe to conquer it. Destroying the entire Nova Corps as his opening attack. He wants to capture Galactus and his Heralds so he can find a way to use the power cosmic. Thanos aligns himself with Annihilus and sets about aiding him in finding a way to use the power cosmic.
Rich Ryder, last Nova alive, takes on the entire power of the Nova Force, basically making him Thor level in terms of power, maybe above it.
To cut a long story short, it's just epic. You've got Silver Surfer fighting Annihilus' top soldiers in battles that destroy planets and open up black holes. You've got Galactus getting captured (yes that's right) and turned into what basically amounts to a universe destroying bomb. Annihilus basically eats Quasar. You've got the Kree and the Skrulls fighting against Annihilus invasion forces (the entire Skrull galaxy gets wiped out, which is why they began their "Secret Invasion"). You've got Drax the Destroyer going all Rambo on literally an entire army of space bugs.
Ah man you should just read it. Everyone who is a fan of superhero comics should read it.
