X-Solicits for December 2010

Uncanny X-Force #3
Written by: Rick Remender
Pencils by: Jerome Opeña
Cover by: Esad Ribic
"The Apocaylpse Solution," part 3. Uncanny X-Force versus Apocalypse's Last Horsemen to the death! With their target within striking distance the team separate in hopes that one of them might infiltrate the Akkaba stronghold and assassinate Apocalypse. However, breaking apart has left them vulnerable, and one member pays a heavy toll for the strategy. Will a member of the team die to stop Apocalypse? Or will the price be heavier still?

X-Men Legacy #243
Written by: Mike Carey
Penciled by: Paul Davidson
Cover by: Leinil Francis Yu
"Fables of the Reconstruction," conclusion! When the X-Men used an engineered virus to defeat Bastion's army of mutant-exterminating Sentinels, they didn't realize it would also compromise one of their own: Karima Shapandar, a.k.a. Omega Sentinel. With her reactivated Sentinel programming taking over, the X-Men find themselves in dire straits...and one X-Man may just cross the line in order to stop her!

Uncanny X-Men #531
Written by: Matt Fraction & Kieron Gillen
Pencils & Cover by: Greg Land
"Quarantine" The X-Men on Utopia are getting sicker and sicker and their powers are shutting down one-by-one. Wolverine's healing factor is down and he's suffering adamantium poisoning, but he's much better off than the mutants whose mutation defines their bodies, like Rockslide and Mercury. And if that weren't bad enough, The Collective Man has Chinatown in the palms of his many hands and the Sublime Corporation is kicking the plan they've been hatching since #515 into high gear!

X-Men #6
Written by: Victor Gischler
Penciled by: Paco Medina
Cover by: Adi Granov
"Curse of the Mutants," conclusion! Somehow, the X-Men have weathered the vampire raid on Utopia, but mutants can't claim total victory yet. Jubilee still needs the X-Men's help, and Xarus still commands an overwhelming force of bloodsuckers. Will Dracula's intervention be the final nail in Xarus' coffin...or will he make even more trouble for the X-Men than his upstart son ever could?

So in December we can expect Psylocke in: Uncanny X-Force (hopefully she won't be the one suffering death or something worse than that), X-Men Legacy, (probably) Uncanny X-Men and maybe in the conclusion of the "Mutants vs. Vampires" arc from the new X-Men title. In fact, so far she hasn't appeared in this arc at all, has she? I mean, not counting the tie-ins, just the main title.

About the "To Serve And Protect" cover, has Emma returned to wearing only lingerie in battle?

...I'd like that, actually. Give her lingerie, a white fur cape, have her working separately from Cyclops, and Emma may become way cooler than she currently is!

Is that Psylocke or X-23 in the Legacy cover?

FSaker said...

It's definitely Psylocke. Look at the long gloves and armbands.

Plus, this cover shows Hope, Colossus, Rogue and Psylocke defeated; the cover for the previous issue showed all these four characters (plus Cyclops and Magneto).

jarim77 said...

Yeah I was thinking it's Psylocke on the cover.

As for the X-Force, I don't think anyone will actually die but the solicits for November mention E.V.A being 'decimated' and since Fantomex feels what E.V.A feels so he might be messed up.

Doesn't look like Betts will be featured much in these, but I'm hoping to see where Emma and Shaw go with their plot. As I now run a Hellfire Club Blog inspired by the work done here :)
