      Emma just had to reflect the Dark Reign, but I too find it a waste of time to do (not so much anything to do with her being the White Queen, or realigning with the evil/dark more, or anything... just a waste of time... we all get it). I'm just itching to see this team in action (I wonder if they'll get worthy enough foes though - to go up against the likes of Weapon Omega, Namor, Frost and Mimic, we need to see them tested... and I'd rather it not be by some singular big-bad that's supposed to outclass them, since teams often feel scaled down when 7 guys have a rough time against 1 menace. Just a few teams of powerful foes); and what will they do to avoid the deus ex machina-like abilities of Cloak (not that being sucked into his cloak has been portrayed as such a serious thing lately).

      seems like a weird mix of a team I mean most of it makes some sense but still an odd mix, I think it will be interesting to see what happens with such is mish mash of characters also on another note is that seriously emma in black ?!?!? emma never wears black... she's the WHITE Queen.

      WHY is Namor not in this list? Or the list to the side of Characters in this article? Did you guys somehow miss the SECOND page of this preview with a fabulous splash page of Namor? With the title boldly and largely printed on the bottom: Namor / Norman? What? There's no 11 page Namor story in this first issue? Sheesh, come on guys. He's only the reason you are having a 70th Anniversary. You think you could give him a little publicity.

      [quote@spyderpunk828 who is this? "Weapon X" they name Daken separate. Any one know?"This first two issues focus on Emma Frost, Mimic, Cloak & Dagger, Daken, { Weapon X }and Dark Beast!"[/quote] and i think the "Weapon X" they are referring to is Michael Pointer aka Weapon Omega. they may be changing his name because he was "Omega" in Omega Flight.

      so glad to see dark beast drawn write. He is an ape and did not mutate into a cat like the real beast. I just wish the real beast was still an ape to. its just more fits his personality. a smart ape. there are to many cat like mutants. the ape beast is a more visually interisting and unique. plus he had feet for hands.
