Meet "X-Men: Apocalypse's" Adorable Cast in Emoji-Style Gif

CBR: With "X-Men: Apocalypse's" release date now exactly one month away, the film's official Facebook page has released a comprehensive image that explains the film's massive cast. It just so happens that the image is a GIF, and that GIF is done in the style of ridiculously adorable emojis. Each character has an animated emoji that shows off their mutant power as well as text that identifies them and their actor's name. This is by far the most huggable Apocalypse has ever looked.

X-Position: Bunn Teases Surprising Change in "Uncanny X-Men"

CBR: This week in X-POSITION, writer Cullen Bunn answers your questions about the evolving characters of "Uncanny X-Men," the new "Deadpool and the Mercs For Money" ongoing series and the civil war on the horizon.

I feel more than a little yo-yoed concerning Warren -- Angel, Archangel, Half of both, Archangel, Angel with amnesia, now Archangel apparently without any/much consciousness. Can we expect to see some stability with the character?

Honestly, you're supposed to feel that way a little bit. That way, when you get some stability (at the end of the "Apocalypse Wars" arc) it'll be even more awesome! Now, "stability" doesn't mean you're going to get a version of the character you're used to. He could be something totally new.

I know that Eric has some extensive telepathy resistance and defenses. But, even so, Betsy is no slouch concerning bypassing defenses. How much does she know about Magneto's motives and secondary missions?

We'll actually be looking into how many of Magneto's secrets Betsy knows about in the next issue or so. The answer, though, is not many. Between Magneto's telepathic resistance (honed, I feel, over years of resisting Professor X) and Betsy's unwillingness to break the trust Magneto has for her, she'll be caught fairly unaware when those secrets reveal themselves... and they are totally gonna starting in the next few issues.

Before the Uncanny X-Men got caught up in the "Apocalypse Wars" event at the end of issue #5 Magneto stopped partners-in-crime Mystique and Fantomex saying "we need to talk," but neither character appeared in the following issue nor was there any mention of this discussion. Will this "talk" be revisited?

While you may not see that conversation, you'll find out what they were talking about in issues #8 and #9... with even more details in issues #11 and #12.

Does Magneto view the Inhumans and the Terrigen Mist as more pressing threats to mutantkind than baseline humans, or is he fighting a war on multiple fronts these days?

I think he definitely sees the Terrigen Mists as a pressing threat to his people. While the Inhumans aren't necessarily a threat, he does think they are a little too blasé in how they are reacting to what the Mists are doing. But he also thinks there are other enemies of mutantkind who are going to take advantage of the dire situation mutants are facing. So he is fighting on multiple fronts. You'll soon see how he is preparing to deal with those various threats and concerns.

After the events of this ["Civil War II"] tie-in, will some of the team line-ups change? Will we see some characters switch sides?

I hate to say it, but you win the "wait and see" award for this interview. It's a lot like a No Prize, but with fewer spoilers. I'd love to tell you how things will shake out in terms of the teams. The line-ups may or may not change. No matter what happens, though, there will be ramifications that will shake relationships within the teams to the core. In some ways, the current line-ups might not be able to survive... at least not for long.

So far we know Storm will oppose Magneto in "Civil War II," which will bring a conflict between the mutant teams, but I wonder if we will have the participation of other teams confronting Magneto -- like the Uncanny Avengers or the Inhumans?

In the "Civil War II" tie-in, we'll be much more focused on the X-Men teams and the Inhumans. We might see what others around the world think about what's going on, but they're gonna be pretty busy themselves. I still think an Uncanny Avengers/Uncanny X-Men meeting/clash makes perfect sense down the line, but not quite yet.
