X-Solicits for May 2010

X-MEN: PIXIE STRIKES BACK #4 (of 4)
Written by KATHRYN IMMONEN
Penciled by SARA PICHELLI
Cover by STUART IMMONEN
You can’t pick your parents. And if you could, Pixie certainly wouldn’t have picked Mastermind, the man who turned Jean Grey into the Dark Phoenix. But right now, that’s the least of her problems. A giant demon named Saturnine has been using her Pixie dust to lull her fellow X-Men into submission and it’s worked. Now he’s one step away from all the power he needs to take control of the world. Can the fast-talking Welsh girl with wings possibly stop him?

X-MEN: SECOND COMING – REVELATIONS: BLIND SCIENCE #1
Written by SIMON SPURRIER
Pencils by PAUL DAVIDSON
Cover by GERALD PAREL
The X-Men are on the ropes, barely dodging a foe whose master plan has them fighting to survive. Discovering some suspicious activity just off the coast of their refuge, Utopia, the X-Men send their best and brightest to investigate, hoping to discover just what Bastion is plotting. However, the X-Club is in for more than they bargained for: namely, a trap designed just for them. Thrown into a war even worse than the one they’re coming from, the X-Club is left to wonder: How do they get back to the X-Men? And just how do they figure into Bastion’s master plan?

X-MEN: SECOND COMING – REVELATIONS: HELLBOUND #1 (of 3)
Written by CHRIS YOST
Pencils by HARVEY TOLIBAO
Cover by MARKO DJURDJEVIC
Fighting for the future of mutantkind, the X-Men are locked in battle with Bastion, staving off his forces even by sacrificing themselves. When Magik is gravely injured in battle, she instinctively flees to the sanctuary of Limbo…only to fall into the clutches of a longtime adversary hoping to wrest the powerful Soulsword—and control of Limbo—from her grasp. Now, a small team of X-Men venture in after her, but they are met only by unexpected peril: a horde of demons out for blood, Magik nowhere in sight, and a concealed evil walking amongst them.

Various X-couplings are mentioned i the article,Betsy and Warren included! :-D

Selene said...

*in

Selene said...

Back to our topic(sorry for digressing),it's odd that Betsy was not mentioned in any of the solicitations and didn't appear in any of the covers...I hope that doesn't affect her future appearances.

FSaker said...

Me too, Selene. But maybe she appears in the variant covers, since Marvel is not showing both cover options for each Second Coming issue.

Anyway, I noticed that the Hellbound solicitation is underlined here... why? Do you guys think that Betsy will be one of the X-Men to chase Illyana 2.0 in Limbo?

That could be cool, I guess, but I'd prefer her to stay on Earth to keep participating of the main SC events.

CmX said...

FSaker don't read too much in the "underline" haha that was a user error on my part. I am not experienced in a lot of posting on the blog, so I had a hard time copying the text correctly! My apologies again.

MattX said...

amazing covers!!

Anonymous said...

All the covers look amazing, did anyone else notice that in the full body pics of Emma she's in her undies and a corset? did she go back to her hellfire club style or is this just cover art? everyone else is in their modern clothing, why not Emma? just sayin

Silverbrock said...

I was sure it was ging to be cable that would be the Xman to fall, but seeing as he is on the cover of a chapter later than the one where they lay their comrade to rest, im starting to get a little worried.

In all honesty the one i would miss the least would be Dazzler, or Emma can go to make way for Psylocke's domination of Cerebra.

Anonymous said...

I cannot wait for this story! Especially Psylocke's appearance. Just so you know, there is a new teaser for Second Coming, the header saying: "All Will Unite..." Our Psylocke is not on it :[

Anonymous said...

Is Kitty back before or after Second Coming? Personally if i wasnt worried who would die i wouldnt be excited about this at all, we dont need anymore Jean copies clones etc. Madelyne was interesting, Rachel can stay lost in space for all i care shes had more than her fair share of panel time and still bores me to tears. If Hope had remained a little girl maybe she would have been a good character, Jean bounces back and forth from death all the time anyways.

Really hope Emma is not going to die i love her, I know she is overexposed but she actually makes Cyclops interesting. Worried about that little visit she had from Jean in the white hot room and if it foreshadowed anything :(

Would love Betsy to be involved in the Magick storyline. Danger would be a great addition too.

Just realized this is the same team that the Hellbound series has the same creative team as Psylocke limited. Think she will be a member?

Anonymous said...

I would hope not. If they send Psylocke to rescue Magik in Hellboud we would get Betsy one time a month. If she's on the main SC story, we would get her four times a month.

Kike Galván said...

i really want to read all of them NOW!

treysome said...

Limbo doesn't interest me one bit. Though someone seems to like writing about it. I want Psylocke to be involved with second coming. Kitty won't be involved in Second coming. Seems Fraction just added it in due to nothing really happening for the last few months till SC. Yup we don't need anymore Jean substitutes just bring back the original.
