    Doesn't look much like his current look, but more like him than Nemesis.

    On that note, it is most likely him. Age of X every one changes their costumes. Is this issue out yet?

    She has a lot of history with mutants though.

    Events sell? They needed something to do for two months before Wells' replacement on New Mutants showed up? I'll probably pick this up just because Chamber's a player and back in his classic look, but it'll be in trade. Maybe second-hand trade.

    I generally trust Carey's writing, and at least they've kept it to just two books and not made it a massive 'mini-series with tie-in books that you must read to understand the story' event.

    I really enjoyed the AofA and if this is thematic in style I'll probably enjoy it.

    I'm sorry...am i wrong here? I thought it was a two or three month story, being told across five or six series. At least, that is what I remember hearing.

    The whole thing is called "Age of X", and, yes, it is being told in 5 different series over four months.

    So...it is a mini-event, with tie-in books. Cross-series event?

    The only series that are being taken over for the story are XM:L and New Mutants for the main story, which is what I think Phil is referring to. There are one-shots and satellite books associated with the event, but they're trade-padding...oh, excuse me...icing.

    trade-padding
    Flightpath's Dictionary says; Trade-padding - the carrot, followed swiftly by the stick. and really, who likes carrots, anyways?

    Horses love 'em.

    Of course, if you're a dog, the carrot's the threat and the stick's the promise.

    Yeah, barring the Alpha Opening Oneshot it's just in Legacy and New Mutants for 3 months, rather than Uncanny, Legacy, New Mutants & X-Force ala Second Coming.

    There's the Age of X:Universe 2 parter too but that's essentially just an anthology about the non-X characters set in the past, so isn't essential reading.

    I didn't see any Alpha Flight mutants in this issue, which came out today. There were so many characters, I could have missed it, but I have a fairly sharp eye for these things.

    Love,
