In Avengers #688… an Avenger May Die!

Posted by January 23, 2018 Comment

We’ve been looking through Marvel’s solicitations for interesting stories, and we may have found one in the solicits for April’s Avengers. As the weekly Avengers event No Surrender moves toward its conclusion, it looks like Marvel could be planning to kill off a member of the team. At least, the solicit for Avengers #688 seems to imply as much.

“As the final battle for Earth begins, one Avenger will sacrifice everything to give his teammates a fighting chance,” the solicit reads. It doesn’t explicitly say the Avenger will die, but it does say that he’ll “sacrifice everything.” That doesn’t leave too much room for interpretation, though we admit it could be a swerve of some kind. It does explicitly say, however, that the Avenger in question will be a “he.”

So who is (probably) going to bite the bullet in Avengers #688? And when can we expect them to return in a five part Marvel Comics event? Give us your best guesses in the comments. Here’s the Avengers solicits for April:

About Jude Terror

A prophecy says that in the comic book industry's darkest days, a hero will come to lead the people through a plague of overpriced floppies, incentive variant covers, #1 issue reboots, and super-mega-crossover events.

Scourge of Rich Johnston, maker of puns, and seeker of the Snyder Cut, Jude Terror, sadly, is not the hero comics needs right now... but he's the one the industry deserves.
