Big Marvel Comics News! Civil War II synopsis has just been issued. And sadly one major character in the upcoming storyline will die!
Cackling like a cabal of super villains, a group of 50 shady characters recently met in a Manhattan conference room to secretly plot the demise of a major Marvel superhero. While Doctor Doom and the Green Goblin regularly fumble their evil plans, this group will actually succeed and kill off their intended victim. And it will surely shock fans of the Marvel comics and movies, since it comes at the hands of a fellow costumed hero in a storyline from the upcoming event series, “Civil War II.” Welcome to Marvel Comics’ secret semi-annual editorial retreat, in which the next few years of the publisher’s comic book storylines are brainstormed. It’s a top-secret affair, restricted to the writers and editors, but this year a Daily News reporter was invited to observe – with a stern warning against spoiling too much for readers more than six months before they can read the story for themselves.
The Daily News came and observed Axel Alonso and Brian Michael Bendis' unveiling of plans to release an All New, All Different Civil War storyline that goes like this:
“A mysterious new Marvel character comes to the attention of the world, one who has the power to calculate the outcome of future events with a high degree of accuracy,” according to the synopsis. “This predictive power divides the Marvel heroes on how best to capitalize on this aggregated information, with Captain Marvel leading the charge to profile future crimes and attacks before they occur, and Iron Man adopting the position that the punishment cannot come before the crime.”
And that's the whole synopsis. Civil War II is all about Marvel Heroes fighting over how to deal with future events before it all happens, escalating up to the big moment where one major Marvel Hero will DIE!!
"After hours of occasionally heated debate, Bendis and Alonso reveal they had a eureka moment during a 10-minute break and came up with the perfect superhero to sacrifice and an even better candidate to murder him. The answer actually gets a loud ovation from the crowd."
Who will die in Civil War II? My guess it's either Iron Man or the Hulk. Both are major Marvel Heroes who share the spotlight with Steve Rogers (Captain America) and SpiderMan who thankfully will not get killed off according to what when on in the meeting. But there will be one major Marvel Hero who will get killed off and bring shock waves to the entire Marvel Comic and Movie world many months from now. When Civil War II happens, I hope Punisher stays out of this war and stays in his personal war against organized crime he fights in on a day to day bases.
