--Previous Message-- : I'm not entirely sure that Bendis would kill : Echo that easily... he pretty much MADE the : character, being almost the only one who's : ever used her. : : She was also created by one of his many : collaborators, David Mack ( well, him and : Joe QUESADA himself), who is also a close : friend of Bendis's. : : So, I don't think this is the kind of : character that he would kill hap-hazardly. : : If he does, it would be something well : thought out, and long in the planning. He'd : try to make it a good story too. : : Killing Moon Knight himself... hmm... I : dunno'... I guess you never know, but it : seems unlikely. : : : --Previous Message-- : Cover for #9 looks great! I think they are : going to kill off Echo, especially because : Bendis is bringing back Marlene in issue #8. : There isnt room for two ladies here and : character death always boost sales. I think : #9 will be a must read! : : : --Previous Message-- : Cover image: : : : http://www.comicbookresources.com/images/solicits/marvelcomics/201201/MOONKNV2009_cov.jpg : : MOON KNIGHT #9 : BRIAN MICHAEL BENDIS (W) • ALEX MALEEV (A/C) : • MOON KNIGHT throws down with the KINGPIN : OF LOS ANGELES! : • The Battle for LA’s Soul claims a life – : one that will be felt throughout the Marvel : U, all the way to Avengers Tower! : • Brian Michael Bendis and Alex Maleev : continue the adventures of Marvel’s : Psyche-Splitting Superstar! : 32 PGS./Rated T+ ...$3.99 : : So who's it going to be? My first thought : was Echo because I really like her and I : figure it would be my luck Bendis would : decide to off her. However, she's such an : unknown among Marvel's hero population, her : death would hardly "be felt throughout : the Marvel U." Still, she's got some : Avengers connections so I don't think she's : off the hook. : : Could it be Moon Knight himself? He's not a : huge player in the MU, but he's an Avenger : and he's worked with a lot of heroes in the : past. Maybe this is how they're going to : cancel the book and put the character to : bed. : : What if it's Marlene? Sure, nobody really : knows her outside of MK's circle of friends, : but her death might push Marc over the edge, : causing him to do something that reopens : some wounds left over from Civil War. That : seems trite, too soon and not likely to : happen, but it's a thought. : : It also seems way too soon to kill off : Nefaria himself, but maybe this is how : they're going to establish Moon Knight as a : serious player? : : Unless the death turns out to be Ultron : somehow being irrevocably destroyed or some : unnamed guest hero shows up to take a : bullet, I'm thinking MK or Echo are the most : likely to die. Crap. : : : : :
