Annihilus is one of the main antagonists of the Hulk and the Agents of S.M.A.S.H. series, from and also is the ruler of the Negative Zone.


Doorway to Destruction, Part 1

After trying for ages Annihilus managed to open a wormhole above Vista Verde, with intentions to invade Earth and strip it of its natural resources. When confronted by the Hulk he decided to send Skaar through the portal in his place. Eventually Skaar managed to free Annihilus from his inter-dimensional portal, after which he sent his bugs to attack the Hulks. However, the blast from the Gamma Core of Red's Sandblaster caused the portal to close, but not before Annihilus' bugs capture Red and Skaar.[1]

Into the Negative Zone

Annihilus is seen with Leader where it was shown that Leader had confiscated Annihilus' Cosmic Control Rod where Leader modified it. After Leader was defeated by Hulk, Annihilus reclaimed the Cosmic Control Rod and escaped.


Powers and Abilities 

Annihilus is capable of self-propelled flight and can withstand the vacuum of space. He wears "armor"—actually an insectoid exoskeleton with some armored components—that grants him resistance to most forms of injury (extreme temperatures, ballistic force, bullets, etc.


Annihilus wields the Cosmic Control Rod, a weapon of great power. It allows him to manipulate cosmic energy in order to manipulate the molecular structure of matter. The rod is capable of projecting vast amounts of destructive energy and concussive force. Continuous exposure to the cosmic energies of the rod has also retarded the aging process of its wielder, making Annihilus virtually immortal.
