    It looks like we’ll be getting an answer to what lies on the other side of the dimensional hole.

    Is that the Black Lantern Corp Avengers? GiAnt Man never looked so cool.

      More like Marvel’s version of “Earth 2”. Evil Avengers, anyone?

    I don’t know what the storyline is about, but I really like that cover.

    So Evil Avengers? Would that make them “Evilengers”? Wakka Wakka Wakka

      Better than the “Badlands Assassins”…

      Either way, I’ll still buy it.

    Except for maybe something with the cape, Quasar looks like his new and improved self.

    So, um, why is Quasar with these people?

    I knew that Quasar pic from yesterday was too good to be true. Looks like Bizarro-Quaze is coming at us from the other side of that rift-thingy. Oh joy.

      *** Spoiler of Guardians of the Galaxy. Look away! Look away!***

      The Magus is back as of the last issue of the Guardians of the Galaxy. Adam Warlock tired to close this “universally destabilizing” fissure by rewriting everything into an unused alternate future.

      Unfortunately, the “unused future” was one where Adam had become the Magus. Adam Warlock gone…Adam Magus here.

      Yeah. This is bad.

    Evil Mr. Immortal would rock!

    I wonder if the fighting that will inevitably ensue will be between these characters and the Avengers or between these characters and the Guardians of the Galaxy.

    If we are thinking along the right lines, the Guardians are at the forefront of this mess. It would make for some great match-ups.

    Thor vs Drax.
    Scarlet Witch vs Adam Warlock (depending on if he’s Magus or not).
    Captain America vs Major Victory & Jack Flagg (both of whom have ties to Cap).
    Ms. Marvel vs Mantis.
    Giant-Man vs Groot.
    Quasar vs Martyr (my #1 reason for thinking this conflict will happen).

    and, um… Iron Man vs Rocket Raccoon?? (I can see Iron Man wearing a raccoon cap over his helmet very soon. lol)
