  1. I am VERY tired of the “guess the mystery figure” game. Just put the promo out and let us decide if we’re going to buy the book, OK?

    And, for my money, having the first person shown be someone that may or may not be from the “main” Marvel universe looking like a refugee from an Abercrombie and Fitch ad ain’t going to make it interesting.

    • Nate, erm, X-Man, has been in the main Marvel universe for awhile now (much like Dark Beast.)

      On top of that we’re about to get a TON of Age of Apocalypse refugees coming over from what some of the teasers have been saying. Easy way to get some more mutants back into the mix without having to rely on Scarlet Witch re-powering everyone (sooner or later… they’ll screw everything up with that) or Hope finding new ones.

        • Nah, he was kidnapped and abused by Crazypants Goblin Osborn and …. a guy whose name I can’t remember from another universe (I believe also the AOA universe.) Said guy has been stealing his power to power a machine much as Norman was doing. Nate is back, and free, but his power levels are that of Cable on a bad day trying to control his techno virus… aka he can move a few small simple objects and not a hell of a lot more.

  2. Just goes to prove that the AoA redesigns of characters were just so cool they could not help but bleed into the marvel universe. The prime examples of this were Morph and Sunfire. Now before everyone gets all hot and bothered certain characters were purposely transferred over from the AOA universe at the end of that original series which included Nate Grey the Xman, Sugarman, Dark Beast and Holocaust. Several years before this happened Marvel released one issue of ‘Stryfe’s Stryke File’ and in it Stryfe details each X-men and what he thought about them. In the Beast file he mentions that he wonders which beast he is looking at, the gentlemanly genius or the socialpathic geneticist. This was a hint that Marvel had intended for there to be an evil beast years before there was an AOA.

  3. Could we be looking at a return of the early New Mutants? Sunspot on the right and Wolfsbane on the left. Alas, the flying silhouette doesn’t quite match up with Cannonball.
