      It also looks as if her feet will be on the next issue!

      I'm hoping there's a poster in this somewhere

      I imagine so.

      Hoping Northstar, Jeffries and maybe Wildchild are on the X versions too.

      Well, they're all qualified, so if this is a 'show every member ever' type thing, they should.

      A poster? Inside Sentry's head?

      Well, I've seen stranger things in comics...

      Whoa, there are x-versions too!?? Who is drawing those? I WANT DETAILS

      The X ones are specific teams of specific time periods all by different artists.
      So far there's been Gen X by Chris Bachalo and Wolverine & The X-Men by Nick Bradshaw on All-New X-Men 6&7 respectively. Next week's #8 has an All New X-Men one by Stuart Immonen.
      They all link to form one Sentinel fighting image.

      The rest of Alpha will be involved too...just off panel.

      Too bad part of Marrina's leg is covered up by the logo! With all the white space on the poster you think they could have found a better spot to put the logo than right on top of the best character on the entire page!!!

      Maybe the white spaces were meant to be an homage to John Byrne's Alpha Flight Volume 1 Issue 6, so they couldn't cover those up for fear of offending him?

      According to DC, the issue after # 12 is # 0.

      Also, Marvel has thrown _.1 issues at us, so nothing would surprise me anymore.

      What sort of maths are you doing, Rob?

      The variants aren't on every issue.
      The next one is scheduled for #10.

      That's actually enough of Marrina to be recognisable! Surprising.

      It's the punk version, though. Personally, I'd have preferred a more traditional one, like the one who was actually a member of the Avengers.

      But it's still nicely painted. Close to Alex Ross's style (but not quite).

      Look's like the Variant Covers are being re-released as one big double-gatefold Variant:
