Although the solicitation for Dan DiDio, Shane Davis and Michelle Delecki's Metal Men #1 was somewhat ambiguous, the summary for the series' sophomore issue confirms Nth Metal Man will, in fact, be evil and kill one of the series' titular heroes.
According to the November solicitation for Metal Men #2, Nth Metal Man plans to wreak havoc on Dr, Klyburn's base. When Magnus, Gold, Platinum, Iron, Lead and Mercury rush to aid him, one will seemingly be killed, though who and how isn't clear at this time.
