      So much contempt for the literacy level of their audience that they don't even proofread their slogan.

      "Experience" instead of "experienced" in that fractured sentence at the top of this page.

      So a DC villains month then?

      is this the first shot of Skull Onslaught or has this been a thing lately ?

      Carnage?! Sabertooth?

      Where's Mr. Sinister or the Leader for that matter!?

      Mr. Sinister would have looked so much better as a X-Men mastermind than Sabretooth.

      Guess I still grow weary of another "earth-shattering crossover event" that attempts to get me to buy other titles I don't subscribe to. Seems like we get an "earth-shattering" event every quarter? Heck "Original Sin" has barely begun. And that other [publisher has gone the route of several "weekly" titles... is Marvel far behind from trying that?


      With that off my chest... this, at face value, seems more appealing to me than the "Original Sin" event.

      It may be the fact I've grown weary of Remender's writing, but I'm distressed to see him putting Loki with these villains; he's good now! Don't change him back just because its what you're used to! His recent turn to good is the most interesting thing done with his character in a while!

      Speaking of "turn upside down" it looks like the GOOD guys are the reflection image under the BAD guys, i can only make out Iron man and what looks to be like deadpools pouches and possibly black widows hair.. Could be past jean too I guess. With Loki involved you know Thors gotta be in there along with Cap, Wolverine and Spiderman. You think with Doom involved they will pull in the FF?

      I thought Loki was still batting for the good guys right now?

      I wonder where Magneto will fall in all of this. He's been heroic as of late, but you know he'd easily go the other way if it meant helping his kind. Or if these villains are going to harm mutants, then he could be a huge thorn in their side.

      Sabertooth is kind of a "mastermind" now. Well, at least a power player. He and Mystique Control Madripoor and most of the Hand. It's only taken him over 100 years to use his head instead of his claws.

      also, Sabretooth and Carnage seem a little out of place amongst a bunch of scheming masterminds.

      Is Red Skull wearing Onslaught's armor? Cheung art. Reminder words. Yeah I game to see what and where this goes.

      @Monsoon28 The Leader? I prefer the nice blend of brains and brawn. Sanity and Insanity!

      @sjeslis I don't mind events but I agree with you about when they try to make you buy books you don't read. I'm enjoying Original Sin unit they tell me to pick up this FF book and when I do I find out the big tie-in is Jonny Storm sat in chair of one of Reed's experiments and therefore the Thing stayed the thing. Really? That the big crossover. Or Deadpool has a daughter. I feel cheated when that happens.

      @sjeslis i'm also weary of marvel promising "great change to the marvel universe!" or "this event will turn the marvel universe on its head!" and having the events end up with absolutely no/minimal consequences to the universe as a whole that are reset to normal a few months later, i mean come on! is it too much to ask for them to take risks with big name characters once in a while?

      @ablackraptor Totally agree, didn't like seeing Loki in the shot at all and for completely different reasons then why I didn't like seeing Sabertooth or Carnage.

      @ablackraptor  Loki pulled one over on the Cabal in Dark reign, could be here for kicks and giggles.. you know til everything goes terribly wrong and he redeems himself by helping the avengers.. totally original.

      @Bulhedd He would never in a million years side with the Red Skull. He will most likely be THE hero of AXIS. Poetic

      @Lastsonkal I was wondering the same thing, but then I read that he merged with Onslaught somewhere down the line...wtf?!  A little absurd but whatever.

      @Lastsonkal lol, My first thought was that was Holocaust in a suit that contained his fiery aura.

      @Lastsonkal  That was my first thought too...He DOES have Prof X's brain matter these days!

      @rcorrea214 @ablackraptor  That's what I hope, Loki just playing them, but I just don't trust Remender enough to expect that.


      Though, I'm admittedly far more cynical right now than I usually am, so I might just be being unreasonable.

      @guywiththeface @Shoe2Exactly, and you always have to have a brute and a crazy. They help balance each other. I will say I'm surprised Doom and Goblin could get through the door with their massive egos. ;)
