Celebrate The Latest Marvel Marriage In ‘Empyre: Avengers Aftermath #1’

by James Ferguson

Marvel had previously teased Empyre: Avengers Aftermath #1 with a picture of Hulkling embracing a silhouette. Who could it be? What twists and turns would come in Empyre? Well, after the release of Empyre #4, the truth was revealed and Marvel has released a new image by artist Jim Cheung of the upcoming comic. Spoilers for the latest Empyre.

As revealed at the end of Empyre #4, Hulking and Wiccan were married before the former left to fulfill his destiny of uniting the Kree and Skrull empires against the Cotati. There’s still more to come in Empyre, but we know a celebration awaits us in September with Empyre: Avengers Aftermath #1 from writer Al Ewing and artist Valerio Schiti.
While there can still be some twists and turns coming in Empyre, I do wonder if this takes some of the wind out of the event’s sails. Everyone looks pretty happy and healthy in that shot (although that could be a red herring), so the stakes of Empyre feel way lower now. We’ll see how the event wraps up in the coming weeks.
