Stryker’s forces score one casualty early, but who wins the battle? At the same time the New Mutants are hitting Bastion’s second-in-command, Cameron Hodge.

So one of the X-Men will die within the five first issues of the event. And judging from the Uncanny cover, Betsy is in the team where one of the members will die. Great...

I hope she isn't the one dying, specially considering she just came back from the dead a couple years ago... but I wouldn't find it impossible if we found out she is the casualty.

However, if the covers mean anything, in the Legacy one Rogue is using her telepathy and the powers of every X-Men in the Uncanny cover except for Magik's powers, so maybe Illyana 2.0 is the one biting the dust (I'd still hate that, but between Illyana and Betsy, I prefer Betsy to survive). So I guess there is still HOPE (no pun intended) for us...

Psychilde said...

WOW this looks like it'll be amazing! It's great news that Betsy will have a large role in the big X-event but not so great considering one of them may die...
But my bet's on Nightcrawler, he's never died and is falling into obscurity also I never really liked him all that much anyway, but you never know, it might be Betsy!!! That would be the worst thing after the last year but I don't believe they will....hopefully!!! 0_0

And also I love how the covers are being divided, Adi Granov doing a cover and David Finch doing a variant, this is great news because i love both their work!!!

I'm not okay with Land drawing my favorite book.

I hope not Magik because I think she is interesting and its taken even longer for her to return than Betsy. But I dont think it will be Psylocke either.

I dont see Scott on any of these covers, maybe it's him.

SoulTapestry said...

By the look of the X-Force cover, it's more than likely Cable that is the one who's going to die...perhaps maybe Cyclops...

Rogue is rocking the butterfly. I'm glad it was chosen to represent Betsy's powers rather than the knife.

Sky said...

I'm hoping it's not Betsy,Rogue or Magick. I'm really liking this take on Ilyana & what she is now.

Dr. Doom said...

Zeb Wells said he would focus on Magik's storyline after the Second Coming. She won't die. Neither will Psylocke.

Anonymous said...

Psylocke is not going to die. That's a given. Especially with all the stuff she still has coming up in the future.

I can't believe Land is going to be drawing Legacy. That is the worst news I have heard all day. Even though I doubt it wll happen I would like Magik or Colossus to die.

This is an awesome team!!!! they all have cool powers, pasts and interesting relationtips between them!
I´m sure is not betsy who´s gonna die! my bets are on cyke, nightcrawler or cable...maybe even dazzler or some background character. I´m loving psylocke being so important again! and her power set is spot on! now we just need a cool sexy new costume

This could mean several deaths not just one. Maybe thats why they brought so many characters into uncanny, theyre going to slay a few.

I think it would be pretty pathetic to kill Betsy shes not been alive long and been in the spotlight but then again i felt the same way when she joined xtreme and we all know how that turned out.

phew atleast Beast is safe, I have a feeling it might be Collosus he is featuring prominetly on these covers and with Kitty back it would be cruel irony. I know people bitch about Cyclops and Emma but i hope its not either of them.

@lejo said...

I´m afraid it´s Emma (like in the cartoons, she dies and Jean/Hope returns) u_u but sure hope it´s not Betsy ...

Anonymous said...

Betsy WILL NOT die. they've done that plot too many times and they know it's redundant at this point. my guess is that it may be either Scott or Emma because they are the only two characters that get any sort of focus and it'd totally change the game up if one of them died. if not i'd assume maybe someone that hasn't been featured much, but i don't really care.

Askanipsion said...

I think it will be Hope or Cable....Betsy and Illyana are both safe....Hope will probably sacrifice her life force so Jean/Phoenix can inhabit her body

No way will Emma die....she is way too popular

Anonymous said...

well she obviously won't die for a long time, but seriously how can this story ever have an impact if it's not scott or emma? cyclops is very popular too but he's the messiah of fraction's stories and it makes perfect sense that in the very end of this story if jean returns either one of them dying would make a big impact. i doubt they'd want that love triangle to exist again because they can only take it so far. "nothing will ever be the same" means someone who actually did something in the past year would die and honestly hardly anyone did anything besides those two.

It would be brilliant if it were Cyclops. It would fracture all the mutants into different camps as it seems alot of them would never follow Emma as sole leader. And with Magneto, Xavier, Storm and even Rogue still in the picture, it would be natural that they would all pick sides. It would be a smart way to break up the whole island idea and have the mutant population spread around a bit. I think it would be a very smart way to shake things up.

To be honest... I don't really want any of them to be axed off permanently.. Tho, Cyclops dying would be an interesting idea.. But would seem ultimately absurd.. Let alone killing off Emma... NO!!

I can do with Xavier or Magneto finally kickin the bucket and a few other usless background characters..

Cable looks like he'll expire soon..

PsySpears said...

Looks great :) LOVE Adi Granov too,i have 2 sketches he did for me,one is of Psylocke and another of she-hulk :)Nice guy.

zerophyte said...

Did he charge you a fortune for those sketches?? I'm lookin for someone to do me some sketches.. =/
