I loved Marvel Cosmic, but both Annihilators
books lacked something. Nova
had the momentum of Annihilation
behind it and it's focus on one individual, then slowly adding a supporting cast worked, keeping the focus on Rich worked. Guardians of the Galaxy
worked because they were outcasts, misfits, in the grand Marvel tradition. Annihilators
, despite having the first string of cosmic heroes, left very little to grab onto, character-wise.
