In June, barring the traditional Marvel super-mega-crossover event delays, War of the Realms will come to a conclusion, ending Marvel’s biggest-ever super-mega-crossover event. And what would a super-mega-crossover event be without needlessly killing off heroes for shock value? Likewise, what would a super-mega-crossover event be without jacking up the price of the final issue? It looks like we will not find the answers to these existential questions in War of the Realms, because the solicit for June’s War of the Realms #6 reveals that we will indeed be getting both of these things.
First, the final issue will be 56 pages and cost $5.99, a dollar more than the (already-inflated) regular issue price of $5.99. Additionally, the solicit teases: “Out of options, the God of Thunder makes a sacrifice that will leave him forever changed. But will it be enough? And what heroes may fall in his wake?”
Technically, one could argue that the solicit only says that heroes “may” fall in his wake, not that they will. But why put it in the solicit if it’s not gonna happen? Oh yeah, someone is gonna die. Multiple someones, it seems. We’ll find out in June… provided the issue comes out on time.
