History: (All-New, All-Different Avengers I#12 (fb) - BTS) - It took years to build the Techtronicon cannon.
(All-New, All-Different Avengers I#11) - As Thor and Annihilus physically battled one another, Annihilus ranted that he set the positive universe ablaze with his newly-constructed Techtronicon cannon. Iron Man, Vision and Captain America soon noticed the cannon and began to discuss what Annihilus' plans with the cannon were and what it was pointed at. The younger Avengers (Ms. Marvel, Spider-Man and Nova) soon staged a revolt and led several of Annihilus' slaves toward the Techtronicon. Unconcerned with the Avengers, Annihilus flew to the Techtronicon and activated it, preparing to destroy the positive universe.
(All-New, All-Different Avengers I#12) - After the
Avengers managed to return to Earth with Annihilus' liberated slaves,
they learned Spider-Man (Miles Morales) was still in the Negative Zone
and Vision used one of the Nega Bands to exchange places with Miles,
warning Iron Man that while Annihilus was now stuck in the Negative
Zone, the Techtronicon was still powerful enough to punch a hole
through dimensions to Earth. Using the Bands to exchange places with
Thor, Vision returned to Earth while Thor immediately attacked the
Techtronicon, only to watch her hammer bounce off the cannon.
Eventually, Thor was switched out with Ms. Marvel using the Nega Bands
and Ms. Marvel shrunk down to enter the Techtronicon itself. Ms. Marvel
found the power core of the Techtronicon but began to feel sick from
the radiation, prompting her to switch out. Nova took the Nega Band
from Iron Man in order to finish the mission and he blasted the
Techtronicon's power core until it exploded, destroying the
Techtronicon and launching Nova away from the cannon.
