Spoilers incoming for Avengers #674!
BREAKTHROUGH: VALIANT'S BOUNDARY-SHATTERING LINEUP IN 201912/12/18 @ 7:30 pm EST
The big Avengers combo-tale is coming soon, but apparently Death is a bit impatient during the holidays. The hero who falls in Avengers #674 is not unexpected, but that does not stop the eyes from getting misty nonetheless.
It is Champions member Viv Vision who falls before the reaper, and her Avenging father KINDA knew something was coming but didn't ... You'll have to read the issue.
We've spoiled enough. Let's just say Viv meets her end as a hero in a very Jean Grey-like scenario as she became the Phoenix. The scene following that drama reveals the Vision and the rest of the heroes standing at her grave, mourning their fallen ally. (via ComicBook

The CWSCOTT DERRICKSON RETURNING TO DIRECT 'DOCTOR STRANGE' SEQUEL12/11/18 @ 7:54 pm EST
wrapped up one of its most ambitious Arrowverse crossovers Tuesday in "Elseworlds", but then delivered another shocker fans were unprepared for.
As last night's episode of "Elseworlds" Part 3 ended on Supergirl
, suddenly the words “Crisis on Infinite Earths” flashed across the screen followed by “Fall 2019.”
For the uninitiated, "Crisis" was THE biggest event ever in the DC Comics Universe, and changed its entire multiversal reality system and featured, among other things, the deaths of both the Flash and Supergirl!
The CW-DC folk not only found a great way to place a nerve-shocking cap on its incredible "Elseworlds" crossover this year, but gave fans fodder to chew on and argue about until next season ... and WITH another half-season of shows to go!
That is planning!

THRTHE MARVEL UNIVERSE IS DESTROYED! (AND AGAIN!)12/11/18 @ 7:49 pm EST
reports exclusively that Scott Derrickson, who directed and co-wrote the mystical Marvel hero Dr. Strange's initial 2016 outing, has quietly finalized a deal to helm the new installment.
A search for a writer to pen the script is about to get underway.
Benedict Cumberbatch will return as Stephen Strange, the good doctor turned master of the mystic arts, as will Benedict Wong, who played his right-hand man, Wong. Rachel McAdams, who played Stephen Strange’s love interest, is likely to return as well.
Strange was last seen de-materializing in Avenger: Infinity War,
where one of his lines of dialogue served as the inspiration for the title of the fourth Avengers movie, Avengers: Endgame.

VALIANT ENTERTAINMENT PROMOTES ROBERT MEYERS TO SENIOR EDITORIAL DIRECTOR12/11/18 @ 7:37 pm EST
Domino. Black Widow. White Fox. Atlas Bear. Outlaw. Diamondback. This March, Marvel invites you to meet a dangerous crew of international women – the newest group of hot shots to enter the Marvel Universe! Celebrated DOMINO creative team Gail Simone (Birds of Prey
) and David Baldeon (Spirits of Vengeance
) are bringing you an all-new story filled with feisty femme fatales, intense action, mercenary adventures, and espionage.
“So, it’s like this,” teased series writer Gail Simone. “Marvel came and said they love the team aspect of DOMINO and want to expand it even further. They said, you get to keep writing your favorite Marvel ladies, with your favorite Marvel artist, but on top of that, you get to ADD MORE AMAZING CHARACTERS YOU LOVE. It took about two seconds for me to say, ‘I’m IN, I AM SO IN.’”
“Is it just me or is it getting hot in here? Marvel’s greatest femmes fatale assembled for a very specific mission (if they don’t kill each other first, natch!),” added series editor Chris Robinson. “After launching DOMINO to huge acclaim earlier this year, I’m absolutely thrilled to have Gail and David bringing the HOTSHOTS into the Marvel Universe (and our hearts!)”
“Domino feels she has to grow up a little, and some of the new agents have virtually NO sense of humor. And they find an object that is something very close to the heart of the entire Marvel Universe,” said Simone. “The only problem is EVERYBODY wants it. We’re having a blast. It’s Domino, but with a bunch of the coolest characters in comics, kicking international covert butt and taking names. Best of all, it’s drawn by the incredible David Baldeon. This is the stuff I most love writing, and David is THE guy to draw it all and make it brilliant. I couldn’t be happier. Where do we go from here? THE HOTSHOTS AIN’T TELLING.”
Who are the hotshots? Find out this March, when DOMINO: HOTSHOTS #1 hits local comic stores!
