The Of Course, Yeah Rampage!

From Newsarama's preview of Civil War # 7:

I'm almost sad to see it end...

McNiven draws the best Sue Storm...EVER.

His furry cat-boobs aren't bad either..

Tony must die! Please, please, please..

Anyone think that Cloak is gonna bite it?? I know a lot of things point towards Cap, but they've also said repeatedly that they wouldnt kill off a Major character..
....but then again they already killed a black dude.. so maybe Cloak and Falcon are safe..

Two black dudes: Night Thrasher died in issue #1. If Millar kills three black character's in 7 issues I don't think Marvel would ever live it down.


Poor Night Thrasher and Goliath. Just more "black dudes" that died in order to add "weight" to a story. For some reason, I have a feeling the dead body at the end of all of this is going to be Falcon. From what I've seen of the solicitations, there is no mention of Falcon Post-Civil War. Its a shame really, because I have really grown to like him from his short stint in Brubaker's Captain America and Civil War.

All I'm going to say is its a good thing Eli Bradley's not there because considering Marvel's recent track record with young black characters (see: Runaways, New X-men), I wouldn't be putting too much on his survival.

In my previous post, I was referring to thw House of M aftermath in New X-men.

Isn't Falcon on the cover of an upcoming Captain America issue alongside Sharon Carter and Winter Soldier (I vaguely recall Arnim Zola behind them all)? No Cap, though.

Anon,

I think he's there. If I recall from looking at it yesterday, he's getting blown up in the background. I imagine he'll stick around, because of YA. Good, I hope so. I really like him alot in YA.

Sharif M,

You may be right there. I'm a little too lazy to look it up right now, but I hope you're right. Falcon has become a new favorite for me in the past year or so.

And I could swear that I read somewhere he'll be in the Mighty Avengers.

(Maybe he gets to be the new Iron Man.)
