The Civil War II Covers That Back Up Bleeding Cool's Fallen And Accused Theory (SPOILERS?)

Bleeding Cool has been reading the tea leaves. We threw out the first lot for being stale but we seem to have a hot tasty cup right now.

It was the Jack Kirby variant cover announced for Civil War II's The Fallen that sent us in this direction.

And indeed, the cover to Civil War II: Choosing Sides #6 does seem to suggest that Hawkeye is out of the picture.

And reading Totally Awesome Hulk, with a Hulkless Bruce Banner seems to back this idea up.

We are expecting that, as a result of Ulysses prediction/vision that the Hulk will kill everyone, that Bruce Banner will be assassinated by one of his fellow heroes, in a successful attempt to prevent him from somehow Hulking out.

And the hero in question is Hawkeye, who used to be a villain, and has been known for taking hard choices. An arrow in the back of the head, should do it. Unless we've just been watching the Battle Of The Bastards in Game Of Thrones too much.

Bruce Banner is the Fallen. Clint Barton is the Accused. And he will use Ulysses' vision as mitigating circumstances in any prosecution against him.

The cover to Spider-Woman has something censored. That is rather arrow shaped.

HULK2015011-cov-edb77

And the Totally Awesome Hulk cover says it all.

Are we reading too much into the tea leaves? Time will tell.
