UTOPIA: Chapter 1
The Dark Avengers take on the Uncanny X-Men! Kicking off the 6-part crossover event, rising star Matt Fraction (UNCANNY X-MEN, INVINCIBLE IRON MAN) is joined by X-artist supreme Marc Silvestri (X-MEN: MESSIAH COMPLEX, CIVIL WAR: THE INITIATIVE ONE-SHOT) to bring you a story that shakes the foundations of the Marvel Universe. When mutant riots break out in San Francisco, Norman Osborn declares martial law and sends the Dark Avengers in to quell the riots and take down the X-Men. And that's just the tip of the iceberg. Don't miss the first Avengers/X-Men crossover in over 15 years!

From a previous blog entry: "He also mentioned that issue #512 of Uncanny X-Men will be a standalone, 38-page story dealing with heading a long ways back in time to find a set of parents about to give birth to a mutant."

Hmmm, Betsy and Warren in the same issue, parents giving birth to a child...thoughts anyone? ;-)

But isn't Warren dating Paige? Ah well, at least now we can see Betsy and Warren interacting with each other, even if just as friends (they appeared "together" in the Generation M story, but they didn't interact with each other).

And I hope Psylocke gives a good kick in the Dark Avengers' asses!

Warren and Paige broken up off-panel. During the Secret Invasion: X-Men mini Angels asks her how's her single life.

I'm so excited for Angel and Psylocke!

Oh I guess she stays Asian then :/ I was looking forward to a change. I don't like Beast at all. I liked him a little better before he went fullblown cat.
