Centuries ago, settlers from Europe set across the sea in search of the new world onboard the Pandora. Crossing the ocean, the Pandora was caught in a dimensional gateway before finding itself marooned on a planetoid in the Negative Zone. The Pandora’s passengers eventually settled the planetoid, adapting and harvesting the high technology that had been left behind by the planetoid’s previous inhabitants.
When the Fantastic Four found themselves stranded in the Negative Zone themselves, they encountered the ancestors of the Pandora’s passengers, including Kenneth Tennyson, the Hellscout. Tennyson’s goal in life was to track and combat Annihilus, the self proclaimed ruler of the Negative Zone and nemesis of all that lives. Tennyson, after a brief misunderstanding with the Fantastic Four’s Thing, allied himself with the heroes to track down a group of corporate pirates known as the N-Explorers. It was here that Tennyson encountered Annihilus, who was being held captive by the N-Explorers. While the Fantastic Four battled the N-Explorers, Tennyson engaged Annihilus, seemingly slaying the monster. However, unknown to Tennyson, Annihilus’ defeat was only temporary, as the villain was discovered to be regenerating a short time later.
