Footnotes:

  1. Nu-World was first introduced in Fantastic Four: World’s Greatest
  2. The first Annihilation Wave took place across Annihilation Book 1, Book 2 & Book 3
  3. This story is about Spider-Man getting together with the FF to mourn Johnny.
  4. This story is about Spider-Man joining the team.
  5. The issues marked with this number are the ones that prominently feature FF members as part of the Fear Itself crossover. It’s not particularly important to the Hickman storyline, but is included for completeness’ sake.
  6. This is a side story written by Victor Gischler. It’s not strictly relevant to the main Hickman arc, but it sure is fun to read to four issues of Doom and Magneto snarking at each other.
  7. Black Bolt disappeared in the War of Kings
  8. The story of the Galactus Seed was told in The Mighty Thor, vol.1
  9. Wakanda’s vibranium was destroyed in Doomwar
  10. The prophecies of Bastet came to pass in Avengers vs. X-Men
