Since his debut, Annihilus has been a longtime foe of the Fantastic Four and was responsible for the death of the Human Torch in 2011's Fantastic Four #587 by Jonathan Hickman and Steve Epting. Annihilus has also proven himself to be an enemy to the entire Marvel Universe, launching the Annihilation Wave against the cosmos during the comic book crossover event Annihilation.

Developed by Kabam, Marvel's Contest of Champions is available on the App Store and Google Play for iOS and Android devices.
