Well this sucks.

How much is adequate spoiler space to beat the thread preview?

edit appears not, well if you see the thread title and decide to hover over it then it's on you not me.


Eric O'Grady aka Ant Man is killed by having his throat crushed and head stomped on repeatedly by one of those adaptoid things.

And yet, there's a giant man still running around live and well on those covers the next few months.

While I'm bummed if it's true...my Scott Lang theory could still come to fruition.

Let me live my delusion! :smt013 :lol:

I really am sad to see Eric go though, everything that character has been through he deserves better than that. He was becoming the hero/role model to the son/daughter he was going to be having.

And while I love Clint, does that mean he just got him killed?

Well in a way he screwed up again......

[Reveal] Spoiler: Click to Expand
Cap gave him Agent venom aka Flash Thompson with the symbiote doped up enough for Flash to control and Clint basically told him to get lost and that he didn't need his help despite the team getting seriously owned last issue and again.

I actually think it's better he die than become a full-fledged hero, whatever happened to him being 'Irredeemable'? He's meant to be a jerk, that was his hook, if his character changes anymore, he won't be Eric O'Grady.

Of course, there is going to be an Ant-Man in Defenders, so who knows who that will be?

Maybe, but at least he's smart and tough enough to not let someone stomp him to death :lol:

I disagree, if you're going to follow a character they need to change over time as a result of their experiences. Part of the reason I liked Remender's X-force was because he chose to treat deadpool as an actual character rather than a joke who never changes.

Ant-man was a pretty one-note joke and it was nice to see him grow a bit.

Zechs needs to be on the winning side at least once in his life.

But Bubba has been right all along in how much of a waste of space Hawkeye is. The last .1 issue of Secret Avengers and issue #4 of Avenging Spider-Man showed all that.
