As well as Immortal She-Hulk coming to comic book stores in the aftermath of Empyre, so Empyre is getting an Aftermath special for the Avengers in September by Al Ewing and Valerio Schiti. With a Jim Cheung cover covered with silhouettes as is Marvel's wont. And with Hulking, Teddy, caressing someone. What if it is no longer Billy?
Marvel does love a silhouette. And just as Empyre #0 had an Avengers and a Fantastic Four version, will Empyre: Aftermath Avengers #1 be accompanied by an Empyre: Aftermath Fantastic Four #1 cover also with silhouettes, revealed later today, written by Dan Slott? It's certainly possible.
Because this cover to the comic won't be revealed until whatever it is that happens in Empyre #4 in August, happens. The solicit for #4 reads;
EMPYRE #4 (OF 6)
(W) Al Ewing, Dan Slott (A) Valerio Schiti (CA) Jim Cheung
