Off My Mind: More Death Coming In Marvel's SIEGE

Seems you can't have an event without lots of death.

So far in Marvel Siege, we've seen Soldier Field in Chicago get blown up and a certain Avenger get ripped in half. As you can imagine, the death toll is far from over. In the checklist Marvel released for Siege, you might have noticed for April a book called "Fallen" with the note saying that wasn't the final title. The question remains, who will be falling? 
 
Yesterday Diamond released a teaser image with an updated solicit:

 

FALLEN (Not Final Title)

Publisher: Marvel Comics

(W) To Be Announced

(A) Tom Raney

Cover by Leinil Yu

The SIEGE has ended and taken its toll on both sides of the battle field. The event seven years in the making has claimed many lives, and in this, its final chapter, a universe comes together to mourn (CLASSIFIED).  The shocking death that ended the fight and gave birth to a new Heroic Age is remembered as a writer (CLASSIFIED) returns to lead the farewells.

Let's take a look at this image. First, let's check out the hands pictured. We have Spider-Man and Thor on the right, possibly Mr. Fantastic on the bottom (it looks like his arm stretching in the background), Black Widow on the left and I'm assuming Iron Man's metallic hand at the top. We can rule out any of those characters as being the one to "fall." We can probably rule out any of the characters seen in the Heroic Age image and Avengers teasers.
 
Now let's look more closely at the shadowed person (Marvel is using the shadows a lot lately). Maybe it's me but it almost looks a little obvious as to who it could be. Who do I think it looks like?
 If it is this person that "falls," would the other heroes be that concerned? This person did some...questionable things and as noble as the heroes might be, they probably wouldn't be able to dance with joy over this person dying. The fact that the solicit says "a universe comes together to mourn (CLASSIFIED) makes me wonder if it is this person. Maybe this will be about redemption. Perhaps this individual will be able to turn things around to end the Dark Reign of Norman and thus, gaining the forgiveness of all the heroes.
 
But is this really how Siege is going to end, with another death? Who do you think the 'fallen' individual is?

I think it's Sentry, he hasn't appeared in any Heroic Age teasers and Thor will most likely be the one to take him down

Posted by Scylla

yep definitely the Sentry....I guess anyway looking forward to see where this thing leads.Siege good so far

Posted by warlock360

does not look like sentry in any way, way to short hair, got doom's hand above, got reed richards down below on the right, got thor, got spider-man, and got Black widow. Could be Doctor Strange, or maybe even tony stark, (Hank Pym perhaps?)
 
sentry

I'm of two minds about these teaser images with bits blacked out.  

Part of me doesn't want to know what's going on. 
Part of me gets annoyed by them. 
 
Probably why I liked the X-Men: Second Coming ones more

Posted by rightprice

I have to agree with you G-Man.  The Sentry comes to mind when I look at that image. 

Posted by CATMANEXE

cant say either way. Marvels covers have been way too misleading over the past year,
and the art is been off a lot in how characters are supposed to look, as well as which characters 
should be there. (see the last issue of Ms.Marvel and just about any X-Men cover by Greg Land
for example). if it is Sentry im not pleased as thats not only not shocking, but anti-climatic and weak
story telling.

Bruce Banner?

@Voidheart: I agree the hair looks shorter. But since this is in April, maybe he gets his haircut before? Or maybe it's just because it's drawn by another artist. Or maybe it is someone else.

MUWAHAHAHAHAHAH! Try to save the picture and look at the name of it MUWAHAHAH

Posted by Maxtone

Looks like Sentry to me, and it kind of seems likely too.
Posted by warlock360

I'm not gonna lie, sentry DID have hair like that but it's highly unlikely void's gonna set "do your hair" on his to-do-list. lol
 
Hmm, Rick Jones / Amadeus Cho, Benjamin... he's got a pointy nose so he's got to be cocky i think.. no clue <.< totally confused now.

Posted by Gregomasta

Yeah, I didn't even read your article and I had assumed it that looks like sentry.  Maybe they're not holding him, maybe they're all beatin' his ass.

Posted by Emerald Dragonfly

Try to save the picture and look at the name of it, guys. It's Sentry.

Posted by AmazingSpiderMike

As long as it is not Spider-Man, I could care less. Besides, does anyone really "DIE" in comics? But other than that Sentry should die, just based on what he did to a certain character not too long ago. Great image, but quite gross!!!

Posted by warlock360

its a guy with a hoodie or cape thats for sure... we're supposed to forgive him? Hmm

They couldn't have made that big of a goof on accident....
Posted by Emerald Dragonfly
@Voidheart: Yes, but what is the reason to call the picture "Sentry" it it's not him, huh?

 Revenge for Daddy

Posted by Jotham

I hope it's Sentry, but it doesn't really look like him to me. It actually looks like Pym.

Posted by dondasch

Death to the Sentry!  Long past time he was off the Marvel scene.

yea does
Posted by FrischDVH

You think its the Sentry, but watch Marvel will pull out a good ol' swerve and it'll be Hank Hall. Noink.

@Emerald Dragonfly: @Emerald Dragonfly: 
That was the name I gave the file. Not the name of the actual image.

it's sentry

Posted by Violet-Eyed Dragon
@Jotham: pym is going to be in the avengers after siege.  
 
its gonna be sentry and i hope he dies nobly.  and you know what--he has done some not so nice stuff, but truth be told he has conquored much of his mental illness and done a lot more good than bad.

I LOVE the Sentry but I think it would be kool to see him have a heroic redeeming death...AND NOT BRING HIM BACk! dont cheapen it.
Posted by DEGRAAF

i just dont think it is sentry. I kinda hope it is, but i honestly dont see that bringing the heroes together
Posted by messiahsjedi

The other hand that you said looks like Iron Man's metallic hand...actually it looks more like Dr. Doom's hand.  Anyone else think so?
Posted by shugtastic

messiahsjedi, you beat me too it...i was JUST about to say that!!!
Posted by CATMANEXE

yeah, Pym is in the Heroic Age ads already.
 
well, in case it is, heres what i got....

Posted by Theodore

I hope it's not Reed Richards... Fantastic Three?

Posted by warlock360

reed is on the lower right, you can see his stretch arm. 
 
Just because sentry isn't seen in any adds doesnt mean thats it's him in the add ; )

Posted by CATMANEXE

Im going with the Sentry side here. mostly for reasons of
the predictability of the storytelling thus far in Siege. when
Ares bit it i saw that coming from the second they said one
dies. Sentry has been on the bad side. He dies heroically,
maybe because he goes against the Void in some fashion,
thereby overcoming his fears and coming full circle.

Posted by InnerVenom123

It's definitley Sentry...... I WANT MAC GARGAN KILLED, MAN!!! C'MON!!!!!!
Posted by G-Man
@CATMANEXE: That's what makes sense to me. Have this guy redeem himself for the crap he's done to be the true hero he was before.
 
@messiahsjedi: Maybe. I can't see Doom actually caring enough to carry a fallen hero. Plus Tony's getting the upgrade on his suit so maybe Leinil Lu improvised the hand.

 Daken has hair that's kind of like that, and his Dark Wolverine Seige tie-ins have been very unusual.  I'm thinking maybe he sacrifices or martyrs himself?
 
Since everyone else has said Sentry, I'm kind of curious to hear what you all think!

Posted by warlock360

Nose fits like a glove and so does the hair.

Posted by warlock360

lol on second thought, Wolverine!?

Posted by CATMANEXE
@G-Man: 
i granted the fact too that Sentry has been consistently " dying " lately, just to prove he "can't ",
which would cover the " shocking death " part. but i really don't want him to, nor really any other 
because as i said thats predictable, boring and cliche. it's acceptable in comics, but it's much
more thrilling to have them not end on that same old note and write something that requires
a challenge.
 
@jstarzyk:
not Daken either. he has an upcoming storyline after Siege. heres a link
to some May solicitations. you can pretty much see which characters will
be around for sure.

If Sentry is going to die then I would like to see him have another moment of clarity and kill himself to stop the Void.  He has already tried to do that but apparently he didn't really want to die badly enough to actually do it.  Perhaps Osborn sending Bullseye to kill his wife will play a part in it, if it happens that is.

yeah i think its Sentry

I see him feeling bad and sacrificing him self to make amends. God I hope it's him!

Posted by King Quisling

With that hair it seems like it could be Clint, Buck or Pym. If not them than maybe Bob Reynolds? It's most likely the latter.
