Yeah. We talked a little about this a month or so ago when the pictures came out.

    Is that Moira front and center? Ugh, Namor. Who is guy to his left? Are there duplicates, 'cuz if not Ro then who is girl to his left? Who is in front of Jubes? Is that "X-Babies" Havok and Toad? Ugh, shoulder ice-talagmites. How many "original" version "resets" will happen? Something WAY FREAKY is going to happen to Magik? Your takeaway?

Yes, it looks like Moira. Although I did entertain the thought it could be Kitty, like that scansdaily link does. Kitty is absent (strike #1 for me). I expect lots of Moira flashbacks. But who knows-- maybe with the alt-reality shenanigans, she returns alive in some form.

Supposedly, we're getting a ton of retcons, as Hickman likes to do, and they promise that stories we thought we knew would have a different interpretation.

Namor? Where?

The dog tags make me think that's Wolverine. And that other guy is Wolverine too (cyber helmet). And that other guy is Wolverine three (old brown suit). Can I get a four? Five? Six? Eggroll?

The little "Ororo" could be anything. Maybe Ro becomes a mommy? Maybe mohawk Ororo is another Bloodstorm? Maybe one's the real Ro and the other is from an alt-universe? Maybe they're both from alt-universes and the real Ro is dead?

I think the Kid Toad might be more like this Evolution counterpart.

Kid Havok just irritates me, because the Scott/Alex sibling rivalry has been such an iconic part of their dynamic. If we're losing that, then everything automatically sucks, imo. Looks like Vulcan is replacing that, maybe? But maybe Alex has a kid? Maybe it's Carter Ghazikhanian cosplaying (yes, I said Nurse Annie-- neener)?

I don't know what to make of the female Colossus/Magik thing. I'm holding out hope that she's an alt-universe daughter of Kitty and Piotr that inherited the Soulsword. Another possibility occurred to me-- ROGUE? She's just absorbed several people? Rogue is conspicuously absent.

Generally, my reaction is negative, because I detest abrupt change, regardless of what it is. And I haven't enjoyed 98% of Hickman thus far.

    And also attached is reported -also beautiful- new samples of the first ish that was posted online. Guess at the kids?

I bet that kid with Jean is her new daughter that she had with Bishop. You'll note that they were sort of attracted to each other recently before the AOX stuff. That's my only speculation.

City of Heroes is BACK!
