I gotta feeling Star-Lord killed Nova or is one of the reasons why he died

Posted by RaggedScarecrow

Scarlet Witch shouldn't be there in the last page. She was working with the Machine Resistance in the Cancerverse and betrayed the Revengers during the Thanos Imperative. I guess she could be being mid-controlled, but I thought she was killed by the Revengers for her betrayal.

So is Richard Rider dead or not?

I hate previews with no dialogue

She died in the the Cancerverse though so most likely she was brought back to life and turned.

Richard! Richard what happened to you!?

A Mouse.... a strange Mouse said I wasn't interesting enough for his movies, so he tried to kill me

Since the Avengers and evil Mar-Vell came back the resolution to The Thanos Imperative is ruined and makes no sense.... :|

Well. The Revengers are still alive...and I thought Lord Mar-Vell had killed Scarlet Witch during issue 5 of the Thanos Imperative?

Nothing stays dead in the Cancerverse, hence the point of the universe. Mar-Vell and the Great Old Ones were defeated by Death, so it's reasonable to assume that their mastery over death faltered when 616-Death made her appearance. And once she left, the lack of a death entity probably allowed everyone to revive again. You can use "because reasons" for everything else.

Lord Mar-Vell was able to kill the Magus during issue 1 of the Thanos Imperative while they were in the Cancerverse and the Magus never reappeared. Lord Mar-Vell was the only one in the Cancerverse who could end life, which is why Thanos wanted Mar-Vell end his life during issue 5, because Thanos knew he was the only one capable of ending his own life.

Yeah Lord-Marvell and Scarlet Witch being there makes no sense. Just another instance of Bendis ignoring stories that came before...

I do not have a good feeling about this...

Wait! Wasn't Thanos' capability to deliver permanent death the whole reason the GotG brought him there in the 1st place?

It also doesn't make sense that they are alive again after Death herself cleansed Mar-vell along with his lackeys hell even Drax (unless Thanos didn't really kill him but just "temporarily vaporized him"). It seems that Bendis' completely didn't research Abnett's material and just tried to add his own flare and interpretation even saying "he knew exactly what to do with this".

The Magus wasn't from the Cancerverse, he was from 616, there would be no reason for him to come back.

Drax was from the 616 universe and he was killed Cancerverse and in the last issue he came back...

Literally the entire premise of The Thanos Imperative was he was the only one who could cause permanent death in the Cancerverse. The fact Mar-Vell and everyone just didn't die makes the whole event broken, and the Cancerverse should still be leaking into other realities.

I haven't read the full issue(s) and he obviously hasn't come back as he was? Again, i'll have to read the whole issue before I can get a better understanding than just from a few panels on line.

why do i have the sneaking suspicion that Bendis is about to screw every Guardians of The Galaxy fan up the butt hole with this next issue
