Nova Assembles a New Team for Marvel's Annihilation Event

After releasing an ominous Annihilation teaser in July, Marvel Comics' solicitations reveal Nova will assemble a team to confront a threat from the Negative Zone in November.

Although exactly who is on that team isn't clear, the cover for the issue -- which is titled Annihilation: Scourge Alpha #1 -- might give some indication, as it features Nova, Beta Ray Bill, Silver Surfer and the Fantastic Four. Blastaar and Annihilus also appear on the cover, making clear the two villains will play a role in the comic, which is being billed as a lead in to an event in December.
