#AvX-Who is gonna die?

All right, Marvel’s big event is here. Finally, we get the comic event of the summer. Yes, it’s Avengers vs. X-Men! Marvel does love these things, as do many fans. But, when there is an “event” of this magnitude in the Marvel Universe, we all know somebody is going to bite the dust. But who is it going to be and how big?

The obvious choice is Cyclops. He has been quite the jackass lately, and after all, he’s the leader of the X crew and his death would certainly change the future of at least the X-Men on Utopia. Is he too big a character to fall? Perhaps. Iron Fist is a name that keeps popping up in some conversations. This is a possibility because Iron Fist gets involved in the Phoenix Force in some of the tie-in issues. I don’t see it. He just isn’t a big enough name. Captain America? Oh yea, been there, done that. Could it be that finally the Scarlet Witch gets snuffed out after all the shit she’s pulled? Nah, too obvious. Folks, whoever gets knocked-off has to be big, just not too big. So who is it going to be?

Here are a few ideas. Ben Grimm, The ever lovin’ blue eyed Thing, has been in the background for many years, and this may be the send-off he deserves. Look at his fight card for AvX! He fights Colossus and Namor? The problem is, Johnny Storm died not too long ago and another FF death may just kill the comic. Nope, not gonna happen. Hmm, let’s see. Storm? Nah. Dr. Strange? No way. Red Hulk? Possible, but no.

The characters in the Marvel Universe that are big enough to have an impact but are not big enough to affect the movie franchises could be these three folks. Protector, Emma Frost, or Hope. Yes, Protector is a minor hero, but it’s just a gut feeling (are they willing to kill off two heroes?) Hope is obvious. She is gonna be the host and it’s already killed off Jean. But it just doesn’t make sense to rub out the “Mutant Messiah”. Emma Frost is the most logical character to die. Why? This could be how Marvel sets Cyclops in a new direction. Also, she has a loyal convention follow that would make the X-Men panels insane. What a shame, she is such a babe.

As a fan you just hope that the crew over at Marvel does it right and actually lets whoever it is die in peace, not for a year, but for good. It will have more of an impact if it’s permanent. So, if it’s Emma. She’s big, but not too big. Rest in peace, White Queen.
