Earlier in the month, CBR and DC Comics ran a PR interview with creators in which they gave away the big spoiler ending for the first issue of Dark Knight III: The Master Race.

Well it turns out he won't be seen for long.
Marvel have decided to spoil a big plot point in a PR interview with Comic Book, which added spoiler warnings but ran it under the following URL:
With James Robinson being quoted as saying "I think that as you'll see in Squadron, Namor's death will open up a lot of amazing story opportunities which will evolve in the future."
And this appears to be how it happens….
