Major Marvel Comics Character Killed in Civil War II #3 [Spoilers]

A long-existing character gets killed. The result will have a huge impact on the Marvel Universe.

Things are pretty tense in the Marvel Universe. A new Inhuman named Ulysses has surfaced with the ability to see visions of the future. This has lead several heroes to take charge and stop threats before they happen.

Tony Stark was outraged when his best friend War Machine was killed after a group of heroes decided to take on Thanos. Stark kidnapped Ulysses in order to figure out how his powers worked. Stark believes the future is meant to happen, and they shouldn't be trying to change things. When the Inhumans and other heroes arrive to free Ulysses, another vision occurs with the Hulk going on a murderous rampage. The question is: Should they protect the future or change the future? The results are disastrous.

There will be spoilers for Civil War II #3 below.

No Caption Provided

Bruce Banner has been cured of being the Hulk. He hasn't had a "Hulk incident" in almost a year. Regardless, Captain Marvel (Carol Danvers) and Tony Stark show up at his secret laboratory. They ask him to step outside, and Banner discovers and army of superheroes. The situation is explained, and Bruce asks if they are there to lock him up or "put him down." Stark tells him they're divided on what should be done and need more proof.

Some proof is found. Beast hacked into Banner's computers while they were talking and found evidence he was injecting himself with treated dead gamma cells. Banner is upset at the accusations, and when he starts raising his voice against him, action is taken.

No Caption Provided

Hawkeye turns himself in for killing Banner before he could turn into the Hulk. At his trial, he explains Banner asked him to do this. Banner approached him months before, and gave the tool that would kill him if he were to Hulk out. Banner knew Hawkeye was one of the few people that could kill him and eventually live with the choice.

Tony Stark is even angrier than before. He feels his friend and founding member of the Avengers was murdered. He asks Carol, "Who's next on your hit list?"

No Caption Provided

With the verdict for Hawkeye about to be delivered, the Marvel Universe watches on to see what will happen next. The next issue will be released on July 27.

Aren't there like 20 characters who can see the future? Don't the X-men have at least 5 of them? Why is Ulysses so important?

Honestly what I find weird is that Beast was able to hack into Banner's computers during a conversation. I know he's smart but it's not a stretch to think it would take a prolonged attack to get into Banner's computers.

@doc-holiday: It likely has something to do with how his powers work.

@dondave: But also it was a secret base. Bruce may have figured the location was security enough. Using "password1234" as his password (or whatever) felt secure enough.

Because he's an inhuman. And inhumans are more important than mutants, according to Marvel.

Genius levels are like strength levels, they vary from comic to comic. One comic Banner proved he was smarter than Richards, Stark and Doom. He actually tricked Doom into basically making himself just dumb enough to not know how to use his power suit anymore.

At least right now, until another mutant event happens they can capitalize on and then I am betting Blindfold or another one who has premonitions will be important or some such nonsense.

5 bucks says Banner is back within 6 months to 2 years because of something lazy like 'latent hulk cells' slowly repaired his body, even in death. Or time travel or some such nonsense.

Hawkeye died a while back and he came back and now he is killing Hulk. Deadpool tries to die in like every 3rd issue.

No one stays dead for long.

Marvel only killed Namor in Squadrom Supreme with the explicit instruction the he would be brought back in the same title.

Or the thousands of other super beings who could raise the dead, heal the injured or bend reality? Psh, they're too busy doing other stuff...yeah...other stuff...

Honestly that is sort of the big plot-hole in stories like these when you have god-level super beings who can do whatever they want and usually don't use it in the most useful ways. War Machine and Banner could both easily be alive but the current story needs them dead.

They'll both be back soon.

This storyline is just pathetic. Its so obvious what is going to happen in the end. This whole storyline is one of Ulysses visions showing a possible future in which his presence causes this conflict. The final issue is just going to show that it was all happening inside his head and none of the characters who have "died" will be still be alive, well and causing headaches. I'd be willing to bet the issue will end with Ulysses killing himself to prevent it all from happening.

Ok, the spoilers were:

  • Bruce Banner has been cured of being the Hulk. He hasn't had a "Hulk incident" in almost a year. Regardless, Captain Marvel (Carol Danvers) and Tony Stark show up at his secret laboratory.

And then,

  • Hawkeye turns himself in for killing Banner before he could turn into the Hulk. At his trial, he explains Banner asked him to do this. Banner approached him months before, and gave the tool that would kill him if he were to Hulk out.

I'm SO confused why on earth would you go to Banner knowing he has been cured of the Hulk and you have Amadeus Hulk running around. To me that's stupidity on Carols part if she knew he isn't Hulk why are you talking to him. Tony himself has gotten proof for himself(If you have read Totally Awesome Hulk).

Now in regards to second bullet SO i'm guessing not EVERYONE knows Banner has been cured of the Hulk with the Exception of Tony, She-Hulk, Amadeus Cho, Amadeus sister and Rick Jones. Don't you think that's something you should mention instead of just flying an arrow straight to his heart or head where ever he got hit. .........(sigh) Marvel is just pushing it.

"Didn't see this coming" . Lol. Honestly it really sucks for hulk and hawkeye fans. Most likely banner will return from some type of gamma coma ,similarly as supermans kryptonian coma . Thankfully I stopped reading after #1 . Rebirth really picked a good time to show up

So Banner took an arrow to head for no reason at all? Surely Hawkeye is smarter than that? They've all been around Banner for years and must know whether he's about to Hulk out or not.

This is an awful story.

"he was injecting himself with treated dead gamma cells." What does that actually mean? And if banner is all pissed at them- you know what?

F it.

@kgb725: Destiny, Blindfold to name some. Julia Carpenter (Spiderman character) is Madame Web and see the future too. We even have Xmen characters from the future that could tell us things. Im just confused on this as a whole

It's Bendis, which is about all the explanation anyone will receive.

Hawkeye killed someone? Sweet baby 9pound Baby Jesus! 1st She-Hulk doesn't have a healing factor now Clint's killing. Bendis. Bendis. Bendis. (+)

Aren't there like 20 characters who can see the future? Don't the X-men have at least 5 of them? Why is Ulysses so important?

Long story short. Marketing. Best for business instead of nurturing ingenuity + creativity (+)

This sounds so lazy.

It's BENDIS. Great writer but lazy as ********** hell (+)

@bl00dwerk: That would be too Bendis.

Why would Banner inject stuff into himself? Bit odd. I wonder what Cho would do about this. Banner has turned into the Hulk a billion times and because of some vision they kill him. They have a Thor and everything right. Funny.

@antithetical: Destiny is dead.

People at Marvel probably forgot about blindfold.

Everytime a character comes back from the future,they are going to a new past that becomes different than their future.

But yeah,Blindfold is still around,although I don't remember how well her powers work.
