** They saved the universe, but billions are dead, the Nova Corps is destroyed, the Skrulls are on the verge of extinction...and after Annihilus's death, they still have to cede territories to Ravenous and the leftover Annihilation Wave just so the fighting will stop, and Surfer has been largely stripped of his morals by Galactus. Oh and [[spoiler:Annihilus isn't quite dead. And let's not get started when The [[TheAssimilstor Phalanx]] decided to take advantage of this]].

In addition, there was an ''Annihilation: Heralds of Galactus'' spin-off (tying up some loose ends) and a sequel: ''Annihilation: Conquest'', which followed the same format as its predecessor, save for the fourth mini-series being replaced by the then-current ComicBook/{{Nova}} series. The fallout of these events would form part of Marvel's subsequent SpaceOpera crossovers, the ''WarOfKings'' in 2009, and ''TheThanosImperative'' in 2010, as well as starting off the second volume of ComicBook/GuardiansOfTheGalaxy.

In addition, there was an ''Annihilation: Heralds of Galactus'' spin-off (tying tying up some loose ends) and ends. The fourth volume of ComicBook/{{Nova}} spun-out of this event.

A few months later there was
a sequel: ''Annihilation: Conquest'', which followed the same format as its predecessor, save for the fourth mini-series being replaced by the then-current ComicBook/{{Nova}} series. A few months after the Annihilation War has ended, and the universe is beginning to rebuild. Unfortunately new villains take advantage of the fragmented chaos, and take over the Kree Galaxy, shunting it out of space entirely, leaving only a few heroes capable of fighting them inside.

** Ten-Cor is a Kree soldier who features throughout the ''Conquest'' one-shot that begins that event, and is taken over by the Phalanx... and is never seen again.
