This week, on the Major Spoilers Podcast, the Major Spoilers Crew takes a look at Annihilation, Book 1 from Marvel. Annihilation, Book 1 The Annihilation Wave has come! Annihilus, lord of the Negative Zone, has declared war! Hordes of loyal soldiers swarm from the center of the universe, and only a handful of heroes can resist destruction! As the Xandarian Nova Corps meet its doom, only Richard Rider – the man called Nova – survives. Now the sole custodian of the Worldmind, the Zandarian’s database of knowledge and experience, can he rediscover himself in time to lead the war effort
What if Annihilus’ wasn’t defeated? What if the Annihilation made it to Earth? What if the invasion took place smack dab in the middle of Civil War and Silent war? The answer to that, dear reader, can be found in the pages of What If? Annihilation. Marvel has kindly provided Major Spoilers a sneak peek of the issue that you can check out after the jump.
Or – “Playing Catch-Up Is Actually Kind Of Fun…” Peter Quill. Astronaut. Star-Lord. Fallen hero. In the wake of the Annihilation, the powers of the universe have been completely revamped and reconfigured, but there are still situations that cry out for the intervention of the master of the spaceways… The situation on Hala (home of the Kree) is beyond desperate, and the powers that be have drafted Pete and a few of Marvel’s other back-catalog characters into a suicide mission, a mission behind enemy lines where nobody expects any of them to survive. Whaddaya bet that they’re right?

Or – “It’s Not Namorita, But I’m Not Terribly Disappointed…” The first Annihilation miniseries was a huge hit for Marvel, relaunching a number of concepts thought long-since rendered pointless, including Super-Skrull and Richard Rider’s Nova career. Nova’s history is full of ups and downs, in terms of power, story, and setting, so it’s good to see Rich return to his roots as a Centurion, and this is the first attempt to do the character in flat-out space opera (unless you count his series of cameos in ‘Rom’ and ‘Fantastic Four’ in the 80’s.) Not surprisingly, and probably not unexpectedly, there’s
