DC Pulls Heroes in Crisis Poison Ivy Death Cover at Tom King’s Request

Earlier today, Bleeding Cool revealed the cover for Heroes in Crisis #7, which featured the corpse of Poison Ivy, who died while writing what appeared to be the Flash symbol in her own blood. The cover seemingly confirmed Ivy’s rumored death in the series, and may have implied that Wally West was the killer. Naturally, this was met with a strong reaction on social media from fans of both characters.

This afternoon, Heroes in Crisis writer Tom King took to Twitter to reveal that the cover would be pulled at his request.

“An unfinished cover for Heroes in Crisis 7 was leaked prior to going through the standard DC approval process,” King said, “I did not like the cover. I duscussed the situation with DC editorial who agreed with my objections. This cover will not be used. Thank you.”

So you won’t have to worry about the cover for Heroes in Crisis #7 showing Poison Ivy dead and implying it’s Wally West who did it… but that doesn’t necessarily mean that won’t happen in the interior pages.

Heroes in Crisis #7 presumably hits stores in March.


Update: King added the following Tweet about 10 minutes later:

 

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.
