Champions #16 Cover May Reveal More About The Future Of The Team Than Intended

Posted by October 17, 2017 Comment

The solicits for Marvel’s for their January releases are now out, and the cover to the month’s new issue of Champions may give away more than intended.

Coming out of a cross-over with Avengers, World’s Collide, which is their big Marvel Legacy story, it is implied that the cross-over will have major stakes for one or both of the teams.

Well, the cover for Champions #16, written by Mark Waid and with art by Humberto Ramos, and it’s solicit, may give away exactly what those major consequences may mean for the Champions team specifically. The first issue after the cross-over, the cover features a lot of new characters on it. However, there is also a notable absence.

Beware, there may be spoilers here:

CHAMPIONS #16

  • MARK WAID (W) • HUMBERTO RAMOS (A/C)
  • CHAMPION FOR A DAY Part 1
  • Following their staggering loss in their adventure with the Avengers, the Champions decide to double down on their mission to make the world a better place – but they know now they can’t do it alone! That’s right – it’s time for a membership drive!

So the team will have a ‘staggering loss’…well, it is notable that there is Viv Vision in that line-up, eh?

So it could be that as part of the Worlds Collide event, the Champions will lose their android member somehow. A death, or some other loss, well, that remains to be seen, but it would seem this cover and solicit makes it clear just who is not long for the pages of Champions.

But, who will take her place? Well, that is the big question for this new arc it seems.
