      Love the fact that Puck has the WW2 version of Cap's shield.

      Should I read anything into Wild Child and Major Maple Leaf being on this cover? Perhaps Freg and/or Marvel-in-general has plans for them?

      I don't think it's connected to the series, just some additional Canadian characters.
      Just my thoughts though, so I may be wrong.

      I had several cats that couldn't click a mouse for trying, and they are supposed to be born mousers!

      Which is to say, you're more like an Asgardian to us mere mortals, than a fool.

      I wonder why the artist chose that version of Wildchild? Are they going to use the dimension hopping exiles? Or did the artist use the wrong Wildchild by mistake?

      Having the Exiles' AoA Wildchild wind up in Earth 616 is an interesting notion. Not the same as having the Earth 616 Wildchild back, though. Somebody really needs to retcon everything about Loeb's **** writing. Seriously.

      Anyhow... Spiffy looking cover art.

      He's currently being used over in the pages of Uncanny X-Force (#11 & 12 so far), so it's time-relevant.

      Ah, right. I was a bit confused by that, since they were in the AoA Earth... But I guess they could just bring the Exiles back home to 616 with them. XD I think it's going to take me awhile to figure out WTF happened to the Marvel Universe in my absence.

      I'm in Toronto and do have a couple of geeky friends from waterpolo that might be interested in going too. Never been but always been intrigued by it all!
