    At first that looked real old-school; certainly in art and colouring style. I might even be able to read it! But, I thought the team looked like the original team; surrounded by 80s characters; then I saw Marrina, in her v5 style. And Red Hulk.
    While it has characters like Demolition Man and Forbushman, it also has Quentin Quire and Groot.

    It is so cool to see the characters kickin' it old-style, though.

    The only one missing is Puck. I might expect him to be with X-Force, but Northstar isn't with X-Men so I don't know what's going on there.

    The problem I have here, besides one of the worst renditions of Sasquatch ever to see print (why can't anyone draw him correctly?), is that this is FAR from the entire team, nor is Puck the only one missing. I'd list all the Alphans not appearing in this picture, but i would probably wear out my keyboard trying to.

    It's the original 8 (from volume 1 issue 1), minus Puck, so I'm counting that as kinda complete. It's also the complete latest team (from their last actual series).

    I had noticed how badly Sas was drawn... it looks like Calimee's version. There's only so much you can ask for.

    I don't even know who's getting married? Peter Parker and Mary Jane? 'coz that'd be awesome!

    If the picture is a literal interpretation of people who would attend this wedding, and not just a promotional "THIS IS BIG!" interpretation, then it'd have to be somebody pretty cosmic, considering folks like Odin and Champion being there. Plus, it'd be somebody with connections to quite an eclectic group of characters like Devil Dinosaur and the Deadpool Corps.

    So.....you got me.

    My best guess is on Deadpool being the groom, but totally unsure of the bride...

    I wouldn't assume that. Also, this is a fiction wedding - the guest list is always, ALWAYS 'people the viewing audience would know', not 'people who would actually be invited'. Why was Phoebe at Ross's ex-wife's wedding? Why was Northstar at Rick Jones's? Why was Heather Langenkamp's husband's funeral (this applies to funerals, too) attended by, and only by, people from the first Nightmare movie?

    Hey welcome back DMK, glad to see you again! I thought this was a nifty post so I spun it out into a new thread. Thanks for the tip and let's hope Puck shows up in one of the other ... 4 pieces?!?!

    Yeah, the retro elements frankly have me wondering if there's some time traveling or inter-dimensional thing going on, or if this is purely misleading nonsense that will not have much baring on the actual event they are teasing.

    Wait... there's baring going on?

    Is this to be a Betazed wedding then?

    So... Marvel include AF in promotional advertising and it's a bad thing?
    If the teaser included every team apart from AF you'd all be up in arms... How are Marvel expected to win?!?!

    I was pleased about it... Hope that was clear.

    Nah, it's cool and all, just the whole advert has me scratching my head, and I am cynical, of course. lol
