    OMG you are my twin! I was thinking the same thing, but you just can't tell who some of the feet belong to. In any case, it's the tiniest foot appearance ever.

    Okay, with this whole new 'reset the numbering' announcement about Uncanny, I think I'll just drop the title altogether (again).
    It's just one cynical, annoying as, cheap marketing ploy too many.
    I haven't been enjoying it, and buying issue after issue because there's two panels with an ex-Alphan in them just isn't worth my time / money / timey.

    Ditto. Except for the Essential X-men part. I wait for the cameo stuff to get to the bargain bin. And they all do, eventually. (cue ominous laughter)

    Also, Amazon's shipping policy is the work of the devil. I always wind up spending more than I meant to just to hit the free shipping mark.

    The mystery of the Northstar contrails explained: I asked Clay Mann directly about this today at NYCC. He explained that when he designed the costumes for Age of X, he took elements from other things - and for Northstar it was Tron. The red streaks are the persistent trails left behind just like the light cycles. Mystery solved!

    Then he mentioned there was a gaggle of 10 cosplayers all in Age Of X costumes who had stopped by his booth and there was an Age of X Northstar with neon lights attached to his wrists. I didn't see it but boy I bet that looked great!

    EDIT: I found the gaggle. Here's a blog post showing all the players and here's Age of X Northstar:
