      He looks so big, I hardly recognised him.

      And, is that Alan Moore?

      Pretty sure that's Ben Franklin.

      I had a very quick flick through Deadpool #27 this morning and Northstar & Kyle appear briefly in one panel, dancing away after the wedding.

      There's also a Frank Tieri penned Weapon X era story and while I couldn't see Wildchild in it I may have missed him.

      I picked up the wedding issue and it was ok

      This book came out today! Northstar's left side is on the back cover, and that image Phil posted above of Northstar's back is found in the front inside cover and back inside cover. So you can see Northstar's back on the back of the front and on the left side of the inside of the back and and his left side on the back.

      When I get around to reading it, I'll post more.

      EDIT: OK 2 days later and it's all read! It's a really good story but unfortunately, Northstar isn't a major player. He's only in a few scenes and has only one line. In two of the scenes he gets punched in the face but in another scene he totally rescues someone so that's cool. Plus add another star for pointy ears. I recommend getting this!

      The poster came out this week and it's awesome EXCEPT part of Alpha Flight is obscured in the upper left corner. I wish you could see more Alpha Flight!!! Stupid words on top of people.

      I picked up my first two issues of that series yesterday. I'll probably be able to read them soon, too. That cover reminds me wayyyy too much of Uncanny X-Force. I hope Nightcrawler is better. ~ Le Messor Buffy: Mom, I've accepted that you've had sex. I am not ready to know that you had Farrah hair. Joyce: This is Gidget hair.

      Don't worry; they're completely different in tone.

      Tone, or hue?

      That's good. I'm not sure I like their tone.
