It’s been quite awhile since Marvel released one of their The End specials, where they tell a What If? style story about the end of a character’s career, but that all changes next year. Marvel announced at the New York Comic Con this weekend plans for five new one-shots that will see several characters reach the end of the line.
Get ready to be depressed with the “final” stories for:
Captain Marvel: The End #1
Written by Kelly Thompson with art by Georges Jeanty. “Fifty years ago, Carol Danvers went into the deepest reaches of the cosmos to spread peace and justice and she hasn’t seen a familiar face since! Whatever happened to the planet she once called home?”
DOCTOR STRANGE: THE END #1
“Written by Leah Williams with art by Filipe Andrade, the Sorcerer Supreme makes his final journey through a cyberpunk sprawl that forgot about magic!”
MILES MORALES: THE END #1
Writer Saladin Ahmed and artist Damion Scott’s tell the story of how “humanity makes its last stand in the only place strong enough to survive: Brooklyn. Former Spider-Man Miles Morales leads the last bastion of civilization into the future!”
CAPTAIN AMERICA: THE END #1
By writer and artist Erik Larson. “The final Sentinel of Liberty story arrives as Steve Rogers fights for survival in a post-apocalyptic wasteland populated by hordes of Red Skulls! The legendary Erik Larsen returns to Marvel for an oversized last tale of Simon & Kirby’s American hero!”
DEADPOOL: THE END #1
“Wade Wilson may seem like he is unkillable, though there is actually more than one way to put an end to him…but don’t take our word for it!” Coming in January by writer Joe Kelly and artist Mike Hawthorne.
Venom: The End #1
Written by Adam Warren with art by Chamba, “the alien symbiote who bonded with Eddie Brock has been through a lot, but not nearly as much as he has coming. In a tail that literally spans over a trillion years, Venom travels the length of space and time as the last defender of life in the universe!”
