I like how that Angel cover is sorta a parallel to the cover to Uncanny #509

I wonder if the character will actually revert to its original form unlike ehat happened with the 509 arc. LOL.

So Jubilee will become a vampire in the '92 universe as well? While she did end up becoming a cooler character in Earth-616 after she became a vampire, it seems unnecessary to do it again in another universe. Hopefully it will only be temporary (kinda like what happened to Storm and Wolverine in Earth-616).

As for Apocalypse Wars, it seems interesting. I'm curious to find out how the arcs in the three series involved (UXM, EXM and ANXM) will be linked to each other. It's a pity that some characters with ties to Apocalypse (Cable, Gambit, adult Cyclops) won't be taking part in this event, and neither will Rogue (who has no ties to Apocalypse, but is an important X-character nevertheless), but this can still be a very entertaining event if the writers do a good job. I mean, there's a lot of things that can happen: Archangel may become Warren (the REAL Warren, not the empty shell he became after the Dark Angel Saga) again, Evan will apparently meet the real Apocalypse for the first time, and maybe the future that the Extraordinary X-Men will visit is a consequence of things happening in the other two series in the present...

For real, even though Civil War II is supposed to be Marvel's big event for 2016, Apocalypse Wars looks much more appealing to me.

Loved the first cover, her butterfly signature looks like Deathbird's helmet.

Rahsaan Chisolm said...

I actually thought she was Deathbird at first glance. Wasn't Deathbird a horseman?

Brian said...

Oh, Deathbird. She's such a good character. I'd love it if she got her own limited series.

Leo Polonia said...

@Brian, I'd love it if she landed on one of the x teams (with a plausible reason, of course).

FSaker said...

Deathbird in a X-team? I don't know... Deathbird is a great villain, and the X-Men need some good villains since the most iconic ones are now either dead (Apocalypse, Bastion) or PART OF THE X-MEN (Magneto, Mystique, Sabretooth, Cassandra Nova - a.k.a. Ernst -, Emma Frost - unless she did rejoin the Hellfire Club).

She could appear more, though. By the way, yes, she was a Horseman (Pestilence, I think) during the Twelve event, alongside Ahab, Caliban and a brainwashed Wolverine. I consider that it was a pretty forgettable Horsemen roster, though.
