Wait a tick, the introduction of Marvel Comics' new lineup for Civil War II was announced today. There were a few surprises, but it's the comics and that is to be expected. I was reading one of the articles from an amazing writer for this website and something caught my attention. First, let's take a look at the official synopsis from Marvel:

“New York, NY—March 17th, 2016 — The Marvel Universe is at a crossroad. A new power has emerged, one that can predict the future—for good or ill— and the heroes of the Marvel Universe are faced with a choice: Wield the power of “predictive justice” to change the future as they see fit, or reject it and allow tomorrow to unfold unaltered. Protect the future. Change the future. Choose your side.”

After the events of Secret Wars in the comics, Miles Morales became New York's Friendly-Neighborhood Spider-Man and Parker went global. He's one of the main heroes that have his own comic at Marvel and he's suspiciously absent from this massive event. This worries me, because back in September the crew at Marvel had a discussion.

During an exclusive with NY Daily News, Brian Micheal Bendis and Axel Alonso, sat down with them and they wrote some interesting things about Spider-Man and other Marvel characters:

“People’s personal accountability is the theme of this one,” Bendis explains to his peers of his project with artist David Marquez. “From the way cops are acting on camera, to the way people talk to each other online.”

Though they also didn’t immediately settle on a big-name hero to turn into the culprit, Bendis kept referring to the doomed hero as Peter Parker, aka Spider-Man.

“Do you see me worried? I’m not worried,” whispers “Amazing Spider-Man” writer Dan Slott. “This is not my first rodeo. By the end of the afternoon, it won’t be Peter Parker.”

And sure enough, Parker is saved a grim fate by the afternoon as mass opinion shifts attention to other characters.

After hours of occasionally heated debate, Bendis and Alonso reveal they had a eureka moment during a 10-minute break and came up with the perfect superhero to sacrifice and an even better candidate to murder him. The answer actually gets a loud ovation from the crowd.

Are they going to kill Miles?

This makes me wonder, Brian Micheal Bendis, a writer for Miles' comic and of course he would deflect killing his character to Dan Slott's major character, Peter Parker. Let's just check out the teams first, shall we.

Captain Marvel:

She believes we should use this Inhuman to help stop crime and she's not alone. Captain America (Steve Rogers), Spectrum, The Winter Soldier, Vision, Medusa, Spider-Man, She-Hulk, Hawkeye, Blue Marvel, Ant-Man.

Iron Man

He believes that people should be punished after the crime. Here are the people that support him : Deadpool, The Totally Awesome Hulk, Captain America (Sam Wilson), Star-Lord, Thor, Black Widow, Luke Cage, Daredevil, Hercules, Black Panther, and Miss America. There's two people that they're not showing, Ms. Marvel, check out her promo art for Civil War II; and with Miles' down below:

I think it's pretty safe to say she's on Tony side. Now check out Miles' cover art:

This means that Miles is on Captain Marvel side, right? I am befuddled on why either one of them are not on the official lineups? Are they the ones Bendis was talking about?

I am curious to know what you think; why did Marvel leave out two young Avengers in the lineup for Marvel's Civil War II? Kamala Khan just tore a picture of her favorite hero. She based her name and outfit on her; now she's siding against her in the upcoming war. I wonder how stable is she and if you've read the comics, then you know she's a very powerful Inhuman.

Do you think it's possible that Ms. Marvel might be the one to kill Miles in Civil War II?
