The guy who can see everything in the future? He's an Inhuman named Homer. I shit you not. No code name, no Inhuman moniker, just Homer.
Homer helps the heroes beat some big bad and Captain Marvel takes the opportunity to start using Homer to solve future crimes.
OFF PANEL, both War Machine and She Hulk die fighting Thanos as Carol learned he was landing on Earth to try to get the Cosmic Cube again thanks to Homer.
Tony swears revenge on Carol for getting Rhodey killed, while Jennifer lies dying on a table, her last words urging Danvers to keep using Homer to look into the future, even though she's, you know, dying.
We all know they won't kill off she Hulk.
>why the fuck would they shove Thanos in this as well?
Because Marvel is led by morons who keep pushing movie cues into the comic events, causing them to loop stories because I guess they didn't get the memo that the movies are retelling shit that already happened in the comics.
Hence, Age of Ultron, Spider-Man Back in Black, Thanos returning in the first place to battle the convenient roster of the MCU Avengers. and now another Civil War to coincide with the movie. It goes on and on.
This. The suggestion that brains formulate an over arching storyline and then stick to it in the hodgepodge clusterfuck that is a major multi-title crossover is fucking laughable.
This actually makes me nauseated.
I know reality has just shattered and all, but they have to remember they decided that infighting was a shitty idea because it allowed them to be completely infiltrated by Skrull spies..right?
>He's an Inhuman named Homer. I shit you not. No code name, no Inhuman moniker, just Homer.
And no chance that maybe, just maybe, the name Homer was chosen as a specific reference?
This doesn't sound right. I doubt they would kill people off the bat, and Thanos appearing makes no sense as why the heroes would be fighting each other. He is too big of a threat for everyone to go hero vs. hero.
The Homer thing does seem like something Marvel would do thoguh
They're pulling a minority report?
Kinda bold making Carol the bad guy
I thought they were trying to do the whole girl power thing and women can do no wrong/evil
Unless arresting people for crimes they haven't done yet is Marvel's idea of justice.
>Unless arresting people for crimes they haven't done yet is Marvel's idea of justice.
It's the modern day liberal's idea of justice so don't be surprised when Carol's side is the depicted as the righteous one.
Also expect references to Black Lives Matter and Gamer Gate.
>what is the patriot act
Liberals saw pro-registration as an allegory for that, conservatives saw it as an allegory for gun control, everyone wants to be an authoritarian when they're in charge.
I already sent the tip through the website
Killing off She-Hulk? No. That would be terrible. And no way would Jen be for punishing people for future crimes. She's a strong civil liberties type.
Also, I hate that we always have to do big character deaths.
It's kinda weird. It would be better for Marvel to just admit that 1000s of New Yorkers regularly die when these superheroes have their fights and just deal with it that way than having to kill a character. If the the character is worthless, we see the trope for what it is-- shameless hack writing. If the character is popular, its also shameless and insulting because every character is someones favorite character.
Well, if the spoilers are true and Shulk dies, you can expect:
>Shulk dying on a table
>Carol feels regret. Wants to stop using Inhuman guy.
>Shulk says no
>"As a Lawyer, I've had to defend countless woman and girls that were abused by their parents, husbands (not spouses, but husbands, lesbians are perfect and can't abuse, you rapist ;^)) and relatives. I would give up anything to avoid them being in this situation in the first place and now you have the power to do that".
>"Lets go, Corp. We have innocents to save"
Done, Carol is in the wrong but still perfect Strong Role Model for Girl (TM).
I see dead people in the future.. and donughts! Mmmm donughts.
Killing Shulky makes sense in the sense that she's not a character that would be primed for the MCU treatment since the Hulk movie rights are still a mess, and Marvel has made like 12 comedy books with female leads to take her place.
It's Jen advocating the use of prosecuting Pre-Crime that's disgusting.
It's so stupid I believe it.
Vintage Bendis, I genuinely want this to be true
Marvel keeps insisting on ramming Carol down our throats, thinking that's going to make her popular. That itself is more off-putting than the likely mediocre story Bendis is going to tell.
Wait, that makes no fucking sense.
How did this pre-crime get Rhodey "killed" if he Thanos attacking Earth was going to happen anyway? The only thing it would do is prevent more people from dying.
What the fuck is the problem there?
The funniest part is how he describes Thanos fighting She Hulk and War Machine as a total street guy. Is he going to use the Thanoscopter to escape as well? Even funnier because no one noticed him landing except two guys.
Knowing some competent people were involved on the creation of this story I refuse to believe it's this retarded. I instead will brand the faggot Neofag poster a shit for brains guy and wait for it to be released.
> Stark throws a big party for all the heroes when they beat the first big monster, and the party sees Damien Hellstrom hitting on Wanda. Jessica Drew is watching this, talking with other heroes and says something to the effect of “Come on Wanda, just say it. No more Hellstroms!”
> Speaking of Jessica Drew, she’s had her kid at this point but they don’t give any details on it. Bendis seems to have a tough time keeping straight who exactly is on which team.
> Carol wants to look into the future because “the Ultimates trying to prevent future catastrophes is sort of our thing!”
> Tony explains how him being a Futurist is exactly WHY he doesn’t want to use Homer as “everything has a natural order”. This is explained through typical Bendis fashion with Tony stopping mid-sentence to tell everyone to “listen”.
How many times do they gotta keep bringing in Thanos? Bendis trying too hard for the MCU.
I could see this being real for a first draft and not the final one. Ever read the pitch for Civil War by Millar?
She is my waifu, mates!
I don't really care too much, I don't even read comics anymore
It's pretty obvious it's a reference to the writer of the Iliad and the Odyssey, but it comes off mundane and to people with subpar education they'll automatically think of the Simpsons.
The issue opens, as discussed, with a small-scale superhero involved into a big action set-piece where all the jokes and the acrobatics get punctured by a stray bullet going right through a little kid. At the moment I’d like the hero to be Speedball and the kid in question, if such a kid exists, should be the son of Tony’s buddy Happy Hogan.
You sly BASTARD, that’s brilliant. You just made Tony’s point justified. BRILLIANT. Mark, what you do need in the opening is something that recaps the world and tells us of the building tensions so that this can have impact. Perhaps a panel by panel recap of events as a news cast only to pull out to see happy Hogan and his son at some sort of theme café in Time’s Square, perhaps the ESPN Café since they would have a thousands screens and possibly the news. They go for a cheerful father and son outing all the while you’re intercutting between them and a simple bankrobbery about to be foiled by Speedball. Cripes this kid is your Sue Dibny except his insignificance in Marvel continuity and his connection to Tony is that tiny hole in the dike that starts the flood. Did Tom B give you this, because no way you’re that smart.
It’s a nice thought, but it’s been pretty clearly established that Happy and Pepper don’t have any kids. They do feel like the right characters, though, so maybe there’s some way to do this. Having them have adopted a kid that we’re only going to kill a minute later seems crass. Would it work if we killed Happy himself, or maybe Pepper?
Cap’s argument for civil liberties is very compelling, but I wanted to beef up Tony’s involvement on the other side and a superhero’s carelessness causing the death of his Godson seems like the perfect emotional turning point for him. The reader can absolutely empathize with why he wants his friends registered and licensed after this.
>That seems totally plausible but real leaks this early don't seem like
We have seen early leaks that have only turned to be true in retrospectives when marvel discarded the leaks such as Nightcrawler being a Skrull in Secret Invasion.
Here's a post from that same guy in that thread:
I had no idea that Carol and Rhodey were an item.
Because I can sure as hell tell you that Bendis doesn't know that either. When Rhodey is laying on the table, Carol's just concerned about Tony being all right, letting him know that she "loves Stark" (in a platonic way).
This is something that might get "fixed" though as the script has numerous times where Bendis asks Breevort to do research for him.
Yep, sounds like early draft.
Remember Brevoort talking about how Bendis' first draft for Secret Invasion went?
Here’s some feedback on SECRET INVASION #1, all relatively easy stuff to nip and tuck. This issue came together nicely.
1) From Nick Lowe on SWORD:
S.W.O.R.D. isn’t a wing or subsidiary of S.H.I.E.L.D. or the US gov’t. It’s a completely separate entity that has worked with S.H.I.E.L.D. on occasion. They’re an intergalactic peace-keeping organization that doesn’t operate under any government or world’s control. In ASTONISHING, Brand mentions to Maria Hill that the only reason that S.H.I.E.L.D. knows that S.W.O.R.D. exists is because of her relationship with Nick Fury.
Possible solution- Rather than an inspection, Dugan’s reason for coming to the Peak (what the ship is called) could be one of a regular meeting they’ve set up to share information. It could still be special that it’s Dugan coming (maybe Maria Hill is the usual rep from S.H.I.E.L.D.) and I could imagine that Brand has a prior relationship with Dugan since she had one with Fury. And I could also imagine a few of the S.W.O.R.D. agents being really into meeting him.
Agent Brand’s characterization- She’s not really an excited school girl. She’s a sarcastic, all-business, hard-*** who has little time for…anything, really. But, like I said before, I could see that she and Dugan might have a positive relationship. But we usually treat her like she’s the one with the knowledge. She doesn’t ask questions too much. One place in particular that I might ask for a simple change would be reversing the dialogue on pages 18-19 panel 5 so that the agent asks the question and Brand answers it. The only other thing that I might ask is that Brand, rather than radioing the Helicarrier, might be trying to radio S.W.O.R.D. HQ and it might be jammed by XXX XXXXXX.
>Who is predicting the future?
>Some inhuman named Homer.
>Like the Simpson?
>Homer Simpson is an inhuman?
>They've predicted so much stuff on that show I wouldn't be surprised.
>No it's just a guy named Homer. He's not a Simpson.
>Is he at least yellow?
Whoever came up with this idea needs to be fired.
Can somebody explain me why everyone is as a strong as Woverine? I mean Rogue is logic to be strong, but the others are not like "I'm gonna lift this building" strong as Wolverine.
I think charts are wrong.
Glad I'm not the only one rolling my eyes over Caril being super relevant when not a single soul cares for her outside her very small, very annoying, very not buying comics, fanbase.
Right. Can you see her saying something like this and everyone having a straight face.
Yeah I think you're on point here. I consider myself a fan of Carol in the same way I'm a fan of watching characters spiral out of control with awful writers and never catch a break and have every attempt to revitalize them result in making them worse. It's like, I feel sorry for her and see a lot of potential in her but I really haven't ever bought one of her comics, even the ones I kind of like. I think it's a travesty to have a character with Marvel in their name get such shitty rags.
Soooooooo original, Marvel.
>This is what you sound like
Why cant they just shill Sif or Val?
Why do we need another Murica fuck yeah military propaganda like captain whore?
The polt of these comics are totally inconsequential. Even if there was a leak they could throw something else together in a few weeks. I wouldn't care if a character died because I don't care about Marvel anymore
