Warning: Spoilers follow for Uncanny Avengers #14.

Marvel fans across the globe were devestated upon reading Uncanny Avengers #14, which featured the totally permanent, absolutely final deaths of Rogue, Scarlet Witch and Wonder Man. 

The issue opened with Rogue stabbing Scarlet Witch, a mutant with reality warping powers and vague 'chaos magic' abilities that allow her to do just about anything, with bone claws, a result of her borrowing Wolverine's powers.  Rogue, who also possessed Wolverine's healing factor, was then stabbed by the Grim Reaper, and was then roasted alive with dark energy, reducing her to a skeleton.  Finally, Wonder Man, who has died at least three times in the comics and is made up 100% of energy, sacrificed his body to give Scarlet Witch enough energy to finish some sort of spell, which will probably lead to a deus ex machina climax next issue.  

All three of the deaths are thought to be absolute, with no obvious plot device (such as magic, healing factors or energy bodies) existing to bring them back.   "Whhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhy?" wailed Kellie Miller, a 32 year old accountant from Batesville, Utah.  "Why would they kill off all these characters in such a permanent and fitting way?"

Writer Rick Remender was pretty firm that all three deaths were final.  "Oh yeah, I really killed all three characters," he said in a totally non-sarcastic tone.  "Especially since both Rogue and Scarlet Witch are appearing in major Marvel movies over the next two years.  I really killed them dead.  Like permanently," he said, emphasizing the last word with air quotes.  

Marvel views the deaths as absolutely necessary, and is prepared to go without all three characters for an extended amount of time.  "We've told all of our writers not to use Rogue, Scarlet Witch or Wonder Man for at least a week or two," said one Marvel executive.  "After all, it's not like Uncanny Avengers is heavily dealing with time travel right now."  

With all three characters dead, fans are unsure what to expect next issue.  "I'm certainly not expecting at least two of the characters to come back to life next issue, that's for sure," said Miller.  "That sort of stuff just doesn't happen in comic books."
