Update

According to an interview with ComicBook.com, a major character will be killed off in the this first issue. Who is it? Do you really want to know? It's Namor.

This character will need to pay for what they did and the Squadron Supreme is not happy. Besides going down a dark path lately, he also destroyed Doctor Spectrum's world. We'll have to see what the repercussions are from this and how long it'll last. It does explain the character's absence from the other All-New, All-Different Marvel titles.
