    So a comic company is stating “All New, All Differnt”, huh? Nice to know things never change…

    I don’t get it — are they all zombies? Dead heroes come back to life?

      It’s a teaser for Marvel’s Foggiest Dusk. After all the heroes are resurrected they’re going to have a bi-weekly comic called Haziest Dawn.

    Ok, I get the Multiple man – but why are there two Moira McTaggarts? Clones?

      I believe they are the two dead Stepford Cuckoos. All new, all different, all pulling the ‘awesome’ walk away from an explosion (That’s the X-Men mansion, right?) to show how awesome they are.

      And isn’t that Havok’s uniform and not Multiple Man?

    Something with Phoenix perhaps?

    I don’t get Multiple Man. All the other heroes are dead presently (didn’t we just see this in Necrosha?) except for Multiple Man, unless they are dead, unabsorbed clones of Madrox . . . but that doesn’t make sense either.

    All new! All different! All…um…dead!

    Are they wearing Black Lantern rings?

      “All new! All different! All…um…dead! Are they wearing Black Lantern rings?”

      Hee hee hee, I thought the same thing and wondered if maybe it was a sign of another crossover… At least until after I had some coffee.

    This has to be Dead X-Men. They’re doing Dead Avengers so why not this too?

    “Marvel is all new, all different in December 2010”, that statment alone makes me want me to stop reading comic books… or at least drop Marvel.

    Marvel’s M.O. IS all new, all different. All the time.
    Ever since the Avengers died, there’s been no stability. And in an actual universe that would make interesting reading, but since what happens in the marvel U is controlled by writers and editorial decisions, the stories are just plain confused. I think marvel is mostly riding on the wings of fantastic concepts.

    Oh, and Brian, that Foggiest Dusk and Haziest Dawn thing was hilarious!

    Who thought that clones of Emma Frost was a good idea?

    No Nightcrawler, Cable, or Forge? Why don’t the more popular X-Men come back? And what about Jean Grey? They should at least bring back Jean so they can kill her again and start the cycle anew.

    I suspect that, much as with all teasers, it will bear no relationship to what we actually see in the book!!

    (Did I win? :D )

    Could this be related to the Children’s Crusade story right now? The search for the Scarlett Witch? Maybe she brings them back?

    Didn’t they just *DO* undead mutants? I seem to remember a big crossover event within the X-titles that came out this year, lots of fighting, lots of “Oh god you were dead, and now you’re not only not dead, but EEEEEE-vil!”

    So any word yet on when Geoff Johns is going to start recieving those royalty checks, Marvel?

      Y’know, we don’t know that this is actually about dead mutants…

        Hey, whenever I see Thunderbird leading the charge, I think: “Dead Mutants.”
        Seriously though, Thunderbird was never even that interesting. Why is Marvel so interested in going back to him lately? He’s no Bucky.

          He’s dead, and known for being dead. That is, given the Bucky/Jason Todd/Captain Marvel paradigm, reason enough to make him interesting.

    for what it is worth, why are Thunderbird’s eyes red and everyone else’s yellow?

      I suspect it’s subtle racism, since he’s a native american.
