It looks like Marvel Comics fans will have to deal with a major heartbreak this September as Marvel confirms its decision to kill off a significant Avenger in the next series.
Played by Benedict Cumberbatch on the big screen, Doctor Strange will be killed off with ‘the Death of Doctor Strange’ comic miniseries release.
Jed MacKay (Black Cat, Moon Knight) is writing the books, and artist Lee Garbett (Captain Marvel) is illustrating the five-part series.
“‘What happens to the world if Doctor Strange isn’t in it?’ It’s a question that I’m excited to show people the answer to in Death of Doctor Strange,” MacKay said in a press release.
“Strange has been a Marvel fixture from the early days, but now, his time has run out and as a Strange fan, it’s been my bittersweet privilege to shepherd him through his last day and the effects that snowball out of it. We’ve cooked up a whale of a story to send Strange off with, and I can’t wait for people to join us on it!”
