What else could it possibly have been but that?

I'm just glad I didn't spend any money on it. Marvel events are glorified "What If" tales. They establish some really weird "What If" scenario, they show the various characters dealing with the scenario, and then they pull the rug out from under the scenario and everything goes back to status quo, with the only "impact" being people's unpleasant memories of what happened. Marvel does this again and again. So there's no reason to read the story. Just wait for the status quo to return, and then read the aftermath issues in your regular comics to learn about the unpleasant memories. I do this every time and every time it works perfectly. But of course, if you actually want to read a "What If" story, then by all means buy the event.

So OK, Las Vegas was destroyed. In Marvel continuity, Las Vegas doesn't matter. No important hero or team has a headquarters there - and even if one did, the hero or team would just move somewhere else. Not a big deal, from a comic reader perspective.

So maybe Natasha is dead. If so, then that will be the only significant change to the status quo. (Rick Jones hasn't mattered for decades.)

In Mighty Captain Marvel issue 8, the Alpha Flight space station gets destroyed. It is sacrificed in the war against evil Captain America, and futilely. The upcoming issue will be titled "Down to Earth," which presumably means Captain Marvel will no longer be based in outer space. Which means I won't be buying the comic any longer. The outer space situation was more interesting to me than Carol Danvers on her own has ever been or will ever be.
