    So are they vampires or pixies? I don’t get what they’re selling me.

    The pixie looking one is called Pixie (imagination at it’s finest), and the other girl is Jubilee who just got infected with vampirism…

    Anyone else think this few panels are too obvious?

    So wait… Jubilee is a vampire in the sunlight and the two in the end are vampires too (the guy in the trench coat and the chick on the couch). I think what throws me off is that everyone has pointed ears (pixie and jubilee and the enemies).

    I don’t know hardly any xmen that weren’t in the cartoons so thanks for the help.

      Jubilee isn’t a vampire yet, but it’s pretty obvious from the following panels and the previews for the upcomming X-Men storyline that the explosion (the vamp is basically a dirty bomb) made her a vampire now. She’s basicaly a trojan horse, or could be one seen how they may have changed the whole “vampires have to obey their makers”, otherwise vampires killing Dracula would have been impossible.

      The ear thing is likely the artist’s way of drawing, thou Pixie and vampires in Marvel are always depicted with pointy (or in this case poitiER) ears.

    Sorry, used to pick it up religiously for 15 years, but slowly dropped various titles. Not that interested in the mutants anymore.

    I’m skeptical so I’ll be trade waiting depending on reviews.
