Marvel's No Road Home Finale Teases an Avenger's Death

In the weekly series Avengers: No Road Home, the "spiritual sequel" to Avengers: No Surrender, heroes like Hercules, Hawkeye, Hulk, Scarlet Witch, Spectrum, Vision and Voyager have joined forces to investigate a threat that has spread darkness across the Marvel Universe. Their search has brought them into conflict with the Queen of Night and her allies. While the battle will result in new allies, such as a tentative partnership with Conan the Barbarian in issue #6, advance solicitations for April suggest that one of these Avengers will die before the end of the series.

Marvel's April 2019 solicitations for Avengers: Road from Home #8, #9 and #10 tease a major confrontation between the Avengers and Nyx, also known as the Queen of Night. They also hint at certain Avengers being tested by confronting their own desires. In two instances, it is suggested an Avenger may fall or die in Nyx's attempt to remake the universe in her image.

The cover from artist Yasmin Putri suggests Vision will die, as it shows the android with his head split open by a bolt of energy. Vision has repeatedly been dismantled, rebuilt and even destroyed in the past. One of his most notable "deaths" was in 2004's Avengers: Disassembled when he was torn apart by an enraged She-Hulk as a result of catastrophic events caused by Scarlet Witch. He was eventually rebuilt in 2011's Fear Itself and continued his association with the Avengers. His daughter Viv would become a member of the Champions, a team of teenage superheroes.

Avengers: Far From Home comes from writers Al Ewing, Mark Waid and Jim Zub and artists Sean Izaackse and Paco Media, with covers by Yasmin Putri. Issue #8 is set to be released April 3rd, issue #9 is scheduled to be released April 10th and the series will conclude with issue #10 on April 17th.
