The Internet Spoils Uncanny Avengers #14 Big Time. So Get Off The Internet. Now.

So, yesterday, after we ran this piece about impending Uncanny Avengers deaths and warned people to get off the internet, a copy of Uncanny Avengers #14 was pirated by comic store employee and went wide, ahead of today's sale date. And panels hit Tumblr and 4chan. There was reaction. Rather strong reaction. Spoilery reaction.


You may want to turn away…now.

Oh dear.








wanda rogueIt may get worse when the issue lands in print. Killing one beloved strong female character may be considered unfortunate. To paraphrase Oscar Wilde have one kill the other and then get killed and fried herself (just to make sure there's no residual healing factor taken from Wolverine even if he doesn't have any at the moment) looks like carelessness.

I mean, it's not as if it hasn't been building. Writer Rick Remender was keen to establish serious issues between the two when the book launched Marvel NOW. I guess people may not have expected to to get quite so physical.

Remender received considerable berating for his "Don't Call Me Mutant" piece in an earlier Uncanny Avengers. I think he must have got the taste for such reaction…

Maybe it's worth pointing out that his Black Science #1 comes out from Image today as well. Almost as if it were deliberate…

Uncanny Avengers #14 is published today from Marvel. Comics courtesy of Orbital Comics, London, hosting a signing with Frank Barbiere tonight.
