Who dies in Scooby Apocalypse #25?
And here’s who gets bumped off…
After surviving the apocalypse and getting through 24 issues unscathed, Fred Jones has uttered his last words. Incidentally, those last words were “Good-bye”.
How did Fred die in Scooby Apocalypse?
After discovering a way to fight the monstrous horde which threatens the lives of Mystery Inc (and every other human left alive on the planet), Fred is slain by a newborn monster. He dies in the arms of his betrothed, Daphne Blake but not before telling her he loves her.
He said: “I just knew… I had to protect you… the way you’ve always protected me.
“‘Cause I love you… Daphne Blake, I love you…
“More than my life.”
I think you may need those tissues right about now. Pass one this way, will ya?!
