      I think the one saving grace is that Magik also appears to be in the same state, and she's currently a big player in Extraordinary X-Men so I reckon Strange will save the day & it'll be like SHIELD 5-6.

      Marvel can't be so stupid as to promote AF, and then follow it up by killing one of their founding members, can they?

      Also twice now talisman doesn't have her talisman on, which is odd

      Ummm... on that last page, isn't that Talisman kneeling over a fallen Shaman near blood-stained snow?
      I am not liking where this is going.

      Yup, that's what we've been discussing.
      I don't think it'll stick though, personally.

      Odd they keep drawing her without her talisman. Wonder if that's on purpose

      'Promote' as in advertise, or 'promote' as in give a better job?
      I haven't really seen them do the former... have they?
      And the latter... well, they gave the space-protectors job to three of them, not the two dead. In the snow. we see above. (Agh! New Avengers #16 flashbacks!)

      Both. I mean, they are using the team in the new Capt. Marvel series, and so far they are being written well which, in my books, is a way of promoting little-used characters. And they are now responsible for Earth's first line of space defence, so, yeah, both.

      I still don't get how her costume stays on. Powerful magic must be in effect. ������

      You're right - it's magic. We don't have to explain it.

      Of course, there was that one time during her big number at the Superbowl...

      The Emperikul tend to gather their victims together, then burn them alive. At least, that seems to be their modus operandi.

      The fact that they've got Strange there in the same state means they're likely to survive.
