      I'm looking at the guests and I don't recognise the two people located at the lower left of the cover. One guy looks like Caliban (who I thought was dead), and I don't know who the lady with the head band is?? Is it Stevie Hunter?

      Looks like Graymalkin and Cecilia Reyes are in the lower left corner.

      Those are good guesses, if this were 1982. Just kidding, kidding. Sort of telling though how character designs are recycled from one era to another.

      Since I started collecting various X-titles again during the past 4 years thanks to Jeffries and Northstar, it's been mind boggling discovering how many X-Men characters have been created in the past 20 years. I don't want to hear anyone say Alpha Flight has had too many members now
