The ending of Empyre, published today, is one that is meant to shock the Marvel Universe, apparently, as we also see at the end of Guardians Of The Galaxy #6, also written by Empyre co-writer Al Ewing. With Rocket Raccoon seemingly catching up by reading the Bleeding Cool spoilers.
How it ended? I've read Empyre #6, and it's all sorts of fun and jollity. But is there anything that surprising?
I am wondering if, Guardians Of The Galaxy, Richard Rider may be reading a different reading to Empyre that we have had. Or maybe they've had a sneak peek ahead at Al Ewing's Avengers Empyre Aftermath or San Slott's Fantastic Four Empyre Fallout? Because I'm not sure the new status of She-Hulk or all the heroes saving the say quite justifies that reaction.
