First Look At Avengers Arena: Hazmat Meets Her Demise?!

Someone posted the following images on Tumblr from the upcoming Avengers Arena.

We see Hazmat, formerly of Avengers Academy, seemingly meeting her demise at the hands of a new character, Deathlocket (see solicits below). This looks to be from the second issue as the first sees Deathlocket vs. Cammi. Guess we know who wins.

As this series is being compared to the Hunger Games, it's coming with a bit of controversy, as it will feature the deaths of many(?) young heroes.

To be honest, I am a bit excited about it as it doesn't sound like something Marvel puts out a lot, though it does sound like a bit of "house cleaning" is going on.

Marvel Cosmic's Darkhawk is a contestant, as well as characters from the Runways and more from Avengers Academy.

The first and second issue hits in December from Dennis Hopeless, Kev Walker and former Marvel Cosmic editor Bill Rosemann.
