Annihilation: Conquest brings an enigmatic new player to the event as writer Javier Grillo-Marxuach (Annihilation: Super-Skrull, TV's Lost and Medium) and Kyle Hotz (The Hood, Zombie) introduce the enigmatic Wraith. But who is Wraith? What are his powers? And just what's his stake in this sci-fi war? The answers come in Annihilation: Conquest – Wraith #1 (of 4), kicking off a brand new limited series exploring who the dark warrior is, and where he fits both with the Annihilation universe and with Marvel's galactic heroes.

"Creating a brand new character for the Marvel universe has been an awesome responsibility," said Grillo-Marxuach. "I hope that when readers pick up Annihilation: Conquest – Wraith, they feel that this addition to the House of Ideas, not only embodies the ideals of the classic Marvel cosmic characters, but also takes it to the next level of action and adventure."

Annihilation: Conquest Editor Bill Rosemann explained "The first Annihilation event asked: What would Marvel's sci-fi heroes do in the face of an invading army? Annihilation: Conquest asks: What will they do once they're taken over? When your land is conquered, do you surrender or do you fight for freedom? That question is at the heart of Wraith's story – and if you're more interested in action, just wait until you see him cut loose!"

After the chilling events of Annihilation: Conquest Prologue, the universe is a dark and dangerous place -- and Wraith is custom made to blaze a path of vengeance through it! But what is his agenda, and can even he survive the evil forces now unleashed upon the Kree Empire? Find out this summer in Annihilation: Conquest –Wraith #1!
