Today We Find Out What Happened To Mister Fantastic After Secret Wars (SPOILERS) – UPDATE

There are semi-spoilers for Amazing Spider-Man #3 published last week, Secret Wars #7 published today, and also larger spoilers for Uncanny Avengers #2 also published today. Read them in that order. And bring on the warning.


So, the battle royale begins in Secret Wars #7. And everyone is preparing their moves against Doom, as he prepares his moves against them. And Mister Fantastic prepares for the inevitable…

.. he's dead. That is what posthumous means after all. Unless it's a lie and it's being covered up. But until then, it looks like Mister Fantastic has been Perlmuttered to death. Hey, remember that San Diego Comic Con T-shirt that Bleeding Cool staffers wore this year?

Now I know how Charlie Brooker must feel…

UPDATE: Well Sue Storm seems to have a future in the Marvel Universe at least. Or rather her legacy does, in All-New All-Different Hawkeye #1, partially set twenty years in the future.
