Dark Avengers/Uncanny X-Men: Utopia #1 Spoilers

Utopia • Chapter 1

Spoilers: Simon Trask's Humanity Now! Coalition marches all the way to San Francisco. Mutants on the other side demand that they keep their right to procreation. Hellion and other students lose their minds and start pounding on everyone. What follows is crowd control by the police leading to the arrest of Beast. The Mayor tells Cyclops he should have controlled the mutants, and broadcast of the riots in San Francisco are shown around the world. Later that night, protests continue. Various mutants are shown marching in different areas all leading to City Hall. Riots break out everywhere involving mutants, humans and the police. Norman Osborn decides to step in. He imposes martial law on the state of California and sends in his Dark Avengers with orders to contain the crowds, protect civilians and arrest any mutant who breaks the law. While these riots are going on, Emma Frost goes to meet Norman. He tells her their deal was that she would keep mutants quiets and he would stay out of their business. Now Norman offers Emma a new plan: she will lead a team of mutants as the face of law and order. He then appears in front of press and declares Scott Summers a person to be arrested. Norman then introduces Professor Xavier to the journalists, who sides with Osborn and support his views. Beast, who is in a jail cell, is contacted by the real Charles Xavier, also arrested, who says that somehow they are taking their powers.

Notes: Writer Jason Aaron stated recently that Mystique will have a short story in the Dark X-Men: The Beginning mini-series. I guess now it's quite clear what role Mystique will play!

It's bad that her only function in Utopia so far has been staying in front of the television watching Beast getting tasered and Pixie being beaten.

Let's hope Betsy kicks some dark avengers and/or dark x-men ass in the next issues!

I hope that the bianchi cover indicates she will actually be fighting Ares. Cyclop's comment that somebody has to take him down, if it was her that did it that would be freakin awesome! I figure the x-men are going to be losing for the first half of this atleast though...

no scans on issue 512 yet? please! We're dying to see!

CBR has the preview pages for 513... no Betsy. :( The bad thing is she isn't even in the intro page where they break down the teams. Under the X-Men side it's just Cyke, Emma, Prof, Beast, Iceman, Colossus and Nightcrawler.

I was already expecting it. I don't think she'll show up in UXN513. Maybe Dark Avengers #7...

I think she still has a shot at being featured in the book. The intro page has Emma under the x-team and clearly she is going dark.

By the way, when I was looking at the intro page for 513, The Brady Bunch theme popped into my head.

Anyway, I know some of the covers have nothing to do with the stores, but I cant imagine that Marvel would create an alternate cover with Psylocke if she is not going to appear in the book in some way.

She HAS to show up in UXM513! Remember, Dodson said that HE drew her in a different costume, so if she doesn't appear in UXM513, she would only appear with it in UXM514. What's the point in giving her a new costume if she only wears it in the second half of the crossover?

Dodson said we would see the new uniform in August.

FSaker said...

So until part 4 of Utopia she'll still be wearing the damn ninja bathing suit? NOOOOOOOOOOO!!!!

Damn, Fraction'd better write a kick-ass scene with Betsy defeating someone wearing her new costume to compensate that...
