In keeping with Captain Marvel’s ‘90s era setting, Marvel released a promotional website that looks like it was made in the ‘90s, and while the site counter, guestbook, and painfully over-animated fonts bring about a certain sense of nostalgia, that’s not what has fans talking. The URL for the throwback website features a big Easter egg for an iconic Fantastic Four villain.
The URL starts with “https://i.annihil.us/” which spells out the name Annihilus, longtime nemesis of the Fantastic Four. The powerful bad guy first appeared in Fantastic Four Annual #6 from November 1968. Annihilus hails from another dimension called the Negative Zone and is a threat not just to Earth but the entire universe because he controls the Annihilation Wave, a massive fleet of insect-like warships. His power level is off the charts, able to go toe-to-toe with mighty cosmic Marvel characters like Silver Surfer and Thanos.
