Major spoilers are hitting the net early for a bunch of Marvel books.
Amazing Spider-Man #698 and #699 seemed to open the flood gates.
Wait, who are we kidding.
Previously, Marvel spoiled all of their big storylines in the the mainstream press, revealing specific details and images before the general public could get their hands on them.
Now, spoilers for the Marvel books seem to be a weekly occurrence.
Of course, Marvel and certain unnamed creators e-mail Cosmic Book News about the spoilers getting out, but it's okay when they do them.
Well, spoilers for Avengers Arena #1 have landed online, the new "Battle Royale" comic book from Dennis Hopeless and Kev Walker.
And what is revealed?
The death of Avengers Academy's Mettle.
Who wants to take bets this is more of Marvel's marketing?
