Which Avenger Will Die In SIEGE #2?
by Tony 'G-Man' Guerrero on
Marvel says someone will die this week.
This week we will see the second Siege book. In the solicit, Marvel promises "full-blown carnage and madness." They also say that "The Siege has begun and it claims its first victim as AN AVENGER WILL DIE!!"
Oooh, who could it be? You can't have a major event nowadays without having a big death. We know that Thor to got his butt kicked by the Dark Avengers but it's doubtful he'll die. It won't be Bucky or Steve Rogers since Steve was just reborn and they're still dealing with Bucky being Cap. Luke Cage is getting a mini series. Ms. Marvel? Maybe, her series is getting canceled. We know that the Avengers titles are also being "canceled." Perhaps since Mighty Avengers' sales have been lower we'll see one of those members die. But is there anyone on that team that people would really care about if they died?
What about Tony Stark? Sure he's getting 'reassembled' and has that new costume coming but what about that Siege teaser where someone holds a suitcase with the Iron Man armor while Steve is standing behind, looking like he's about to receive it? Could it be possible that just as Tony recovers, something happens? Since Steve insists Bucky has to be Captain America in order to live, maybe he'll become the new Iron Man. Wouldn't that be a twist? Would Marvel make the bold move in killing off Tony Stark just before Iron Man 2 comes out? DC did it with Batman right before The Dark Knight Returns.
Maybe they'll take the easy way out and have a "Dark" Avenger die. Technically they are considered Avengers, at least in the public's eye. What about Ares? He's been on the fence with Norman's plan and appears to have a change of heart after fighting Balder and seeing a beaten Heimdall. You know Norman has contingency plans if his Avenges try turning on him. Or maybe Sentry will die...again.
Who will be the first casualty of Siege? Will the death live up to the rumblings that something shocking is about to occur? Will this character actually stay dead? Which Avenger do you think is going to die?
