Marvel will kill off major MCU character in new comic series
After Marvel broke millions of hearts in Avengers: Infinity War and Endgame, it looks like Marvel comics are set to do something similar too. According to Marvel comics writer Jed MacKay, he is going to kill a beloved Avenger in one of his upcoming comics. And it’s going to be heartbreaking for millions of fans.
Marvel comics are going to kill off Doctor Strange!
MacKay revealed in a recent press release a lot of his ideas about what he’s going to do in his upcoming comics Death of Doctor Strange. As the name suggests, this five-part comic series will bring an end to Doctor Steven Strange. However, what we don’t know is did he see his own death beforehand with the Eye of Agamotto? In the MCU, Benedict Cumberbatch‘s Strange uses the time stone quite liberally. But, would he do the same in the comics? Mackay said:
‘What happens to the world if Doctor Strange isn’t in it?’ It’s a question that I’m excited to show people the answer to in Death of Doctor Strange. Strange has been a Marvel fixture from the early days, but now, his time has run out and as a Strange fan, it’s been my bittersweet privilege to shepherd him through his last day and the effects that snowball out of it. We’ve cooked up a whale of a story to send Strange off with, and I can’t wait for people to join us on it!
Moreover, illustrating artist Lee Garbett mentioned how Doctor Strange is one of his most admired characters in Marvel. He believes it’s going to be the “perfect finale” for the character and he can’t wait to draw it, saying:
Doctor Strange has long been top of my ‘most coveted character’ list. To finally get a chance to draw him in such a momentous series is… well, magic. I couldn’t be more excited for the project and for everyone to see what we’ve got in store for Stephen and those closest to him. Jed’s conjured the perfect finale for Doctor Strange – and it’s a real third eye-opener! See you in September!
Death of Doctor Strange goes on sale in September. Whereas Doctor Strange: Multiverse of Madness will hit the theatres on March 25, 2022. So, Marvel fans, buckle up!
