The cover to Avengers #29 fans the flames of internet rumors about the upcoming demise of Rachel Grey in Marvel's Avengers vs. X-Men event.
What happened to the Captain America we all know and love? The stress of the Avengers vs. X-Men event appears to be getting to Steve Rogers, as he has been becoming increasingly more violent as the event progresses. First there was the quietly sanctioned attempt to murder Hope by Wolverine, then an attempt to cover up this covert operation by ejecting Wolverine from a Quinjet mid-flight. Now we see this scene from the cover of Avengers #29, in stores presumably in August, where the good Captain lurks in an alley, murder in his eyes, watching Rachel Grey and her homosexual friends Iceman and Angel frolicking innocently in an impromptu ice rink.
Rumors have been swirling on Twitter and Reddit that Grey will be biting the dust in the event, fueled by her association with the Phoenix Force, Marvel's editorial quota for senseless deaths during major events, and a desire by the company to punish the character for the ongoing embarrassment of Chris Claremont's "Dino-Rachel" storyline from his last run on Uncanny X-Men.
More on this story as it develops, and be sure to read the comments for support of Captain America's fascist, authoritarian tactics and condemnation of poor Scott Summers.
