Marvel is bringing their cosmic powerhouse superteam down to Earth in a newly announced crossover with Earth's Mightiest Heroes.Announced this morning via Press Release and Marvel.com, Annihilators: Earthfall #1 will launch a four issue mini-series this September that sees Gladiator, Quasar, Ronan, Ikon and Beta-Ray Bill coming to Earth to square up against the Avengers. Co-written by Dan Abnett and Andy Lanning, collectively known in the industry as DnA, the story marks the continuation of years of cosmic action from the duo. "A desperate and vital mission brings the Annihilators to Earth, and what generates the conflict with Earth’s Mightiest Heroes is basically the clash of jurisdiction, and the incompatible interests of both teams; what’s good for Earth might not be good for the Galaxy—and vice versa!” Abnett told Marvel.com. Lanning also noted that this is a great jumping-on point to the Marvel Cosmic group, as they'll be introducing the characters when they come to Earth. With folks like Gladiator and Ronan in the squad, who have traditionally clashed with Earth's heroes, it certainly spells trouble. The book will also once again feature a Rocket Raccoon and Groot back-up, similar to the first Annihilators series. Press Release Follows Avengers Vs. Annihilators!
