NB of the Week

The Thanos Imperative: Devastation
After the wreckage that Mar-Vell and the Cancerverse left and the lives lost to stop Thanos, pieces have to be picked up. Unfortunately for the Inhumans, that means Blastaar thinks it's the perfect time to invade and take over. However, through flashbacks we are brought into the new fold of things as he is stopped by the newly formed Annihilators. Having shown that the galaxy really does need it's guardians, Cosmo (the psychic, Russian dog) has brought the galaxy's biggest hitters together, following Star-Lords last wishes before he sacrificed himself with Nova.

"The galaxy doesn't need guardians! It doesn't need brave souls! If it's going to survive another one of these, it's going to need absolute bad-asses! It's going to need the biggest guns of all! Cosmic heavy hitters as scary as the menaces they have to face! It's going to need flarking annihilators!"

And that's who he brought together. Gladiator, Ronan The Accuser, Quasar, Beta Ray Bill and The Silver Surfer. The toughest SOB's this side of the universe who will stand together as the galaxy's last resort.
If you know anything about the Marvel space scene, these are the dudes you want fighting in your corner. One of them is always the "secret weapon" for the Avengers what shit hits the fan and all together, the baddies better take notice. Not sure how far Marvel will play this out but I'm certainly on board for the four issue mini coming up, even if it is $4.99 an issue. Bring it on, cuz I don't plan on missing it.
