Comic Book / Annihilation: Scourge

Go To

Annihilation: Scourge is a Marvel Comics crossover story that ran from November 2019 to December 2019. Written by Matthew Rosenberg, the series is a sequel to the Marvel stories, Annihilation and Annihilation: Conquest.

There is only survival! Something is stirring in the Negative Zone—something Marvel’s galactic heroes can’t foresee. Can Nova assemble a team powerful enough to tackle this burgeoning threat—or is it already too late to stop its descent upon all living beings? For the greatest champions of the cosmos, this is only the beginning. Co-starring the Fantastic Four and Silver Surfer!



  • Drowning My Sorrows: Scourge opens with Nova doing this after the new Nova Corp was all but completely annihilated once more by the Universal Church of Truth. Seeing Annihilus show up did not help things.
  • I Choose to Stay: At the end of ''Annihilation: Scourge", The Sentry chooses to remain in the Negative Zone to contemplate the universe he almost destroyed. Understandably, no one who lives there is all too enthused, but he's too powerful to kick out.
  • Reality-Breaking Paradox: After The Sentry's merger with the Void destabilizes in Agents of Wakanda, he goes to the Fantastic Four to get it purged — kickstarting the events of the story, when the Void separating from Reynolds rips open a hole in space-time to the Cancerverse.
  • Sharing a Body: At the end of Annihilation - Scourge, The Sentry re-merges with the Void and they end up alternating control of their shared body.

  • Superman Stays Out of Gotham: Despite pretty much every other big league cosmic hero taking part in repelling the Cancerverse, the Guardians of the Galaxy are nowhere to be seen. Nova later confirmed that he actively kept them out of the conflict so that the universe would still have someone to protect it whether it's as a final line of defense if they others fail or while the other heroes recover if they succeed.


How well does it match the trope?
