Dennis Hopeless, a supernatural creature who sustains himself by drinking the tears of Tumblr users, has been shocking readers of his Marvel comic book, Avengers Arena, for eleven issues now. Fans were extremely upset at the previous issue, in which fan favorite Runaway Nico was apparently killed. Well, worry not, Nico fans, because in Avengers Arena #12, which leaked all over 4chan today, Nico is seen to come back to life via a sort of death rattle spell, which causes her to wreak havoc on that mean old Apex and her cyborg minions, Chasehawk and Death Locket. Nico sends Apex and Death Locket underground with a spell, where the pair uncover what appears to be a sort of morgue underneath Murderworld. On one of the tables in the morgue is Mettle, the first character to be killed in Avengers Arena... but he appears to be a robot!
Like, OMG, people. I am getting mad feels right now. Are you telling me that Avengers Arena is not really killing off all of these fan favorite Marvel teen characters? Who could possibly have seen that coming?!
Oh yeah, fucking everyone. Well, it'll be nice to see the "these stories don't matter because no one really dies" complainers take the stage for a little while, as we've had enough of the "how can you kill my favorite teen characters you cruel meanies" people for the time being. It should be noted that there WERE two bodies on the tables that did appear to be real, so I guess less popular characters CAN die in the series.
Avengers Arena #12 will be in stores on Wednesday.
And Marvel, you wouldn't give The Outhouse review copies for years (back when we still bothered asking), but you've obviously got a leak, don't you. Maybe you should have been more selective with everyone. This shit happens every week. Why don't you look into that? Can't be that hard to track down.
The Outhouse is sponsored this week by Late Nite Draw. Recently featured on ComicsAlliances' Best Art Ever, he is a Chicago-based commissioned artist with a self-published Digital+Print one-shot coming out in October about the abominable snowman called ABOBAMANIMABBLE, and is also available for commissions.
