    I liked Apocalypse and his role in the Messiah War, plus isn't part of him now based off of Warren Worthington's personality since it was Archangel that revived him in order to take on both Stryfe and Bishop?

    Well, Apocalypse in the future is. Current time Apocalypse was taken away by Celestials after his most recent failure in starting shit. So it's hard to say how they are going to handle it.

    I guess I should just post the rest of these since I haven't noticed them yet in this thread. July seems like it'll be a wacky month for the X-Men. Spoilered for huge:

    So Blade is going to be an X-Man now too? I guess they just let anyone in these days? And with Jubilee being a vampire now for some reason, I'm sure that'll result in some awkward moments to say the least. And Elektra - I haven't kept up on the character, but I didn't even think she was a mutant. Or is that a requirement to be on the team anymore now that Cyke's in charge? I also don't recognize the girl paired with Magneto, or the girl paired with Blade. Any ideas?

    Honestly, no one has any idea exactly what the preview images really indicate. We do know that X-Men are fighting vampires in San Fran after Second Coming and that the X-folk are going to be more integrated with the rest of the Marvel Universe.

    So you figure that they just redrew Jubilee as a vampire for the hell of it?

    As of her last appearance she wasn't a vampire. Since there is a vampire storyline coming up, I wouldn't be surprised if she is turned into one but... why would you spoil something like that?

    To build up interest. If she's an early convert, like in the first few pages of the first issue, then it's just an early preview.

    Also, I thought the vampire thing was a separate mini.

    Turning Jubilee into a vampire might not be a bad move for the character...and I say that with tightly gritted teeth, since vampirism in mainstream comics is gimmicky at best. Jubilee has never been able to garner much fandom, and "vampirism" is just one of the many shark-jumping techniques writers tend to use when trying to make a character more interesting. Others being a sudden death and subsequent ressurection, amping their powers up to ridiculous levels, swapping out or drastically changing their powers, making them a villain for a few issues, or turning them into unabashed whores. I'm a personal fan of the latter, myself.

    Psylocke is a great example of a character who has gone through pretty much every single one of those changes at some point, though I don't think she's been a vampire yet.

    I don't like the idea of Mutants vs Vampires, but there could be a good story about the X-men trying to reverse M-Day and have it backfire and result in the depowered mutants becoming vamps.

    Or at least it could have been good if they had let Mike Carey write it - he's done a fantastic job on Legacy, and has written some great supernatural (Felix Castor, various Vertigo books) and vampire (Wetworks) stories in the past. Victor Geschler's vampire books are crap, in my unhumble opinion - I'm not expecting good things from his run.

    I will buy everything Carey has ever done if he does a Rockslide focused issue of Legacy.

    I mean he's doing an Indra one after Second Coming for chrissakes. Indra!

    I believe that's Savage She-Hulk.
    or the girl paired with Blade.

    That's Hope, supposed Mutant Messiah. Messiah Complex, Messiah War, and Second Coming are a trilogy - she was the first mutant born since M Day, and it's pretty much a given that she has some connection to the Phoenix Force and/or Jean Grey.

    When they kill Cable off in Second Coming, it's easy to just take Nate Grey #2 and slide him over to the active roster.

    But have his ghost live in Nate's head, like that professor guy who talks to Firestorm (everything I know about Firestorm is from a handful of JLA appearances).

    Funny I had the same idea roughly 200 posts ago in this very thread! I've got my eye on you Hensler! If it actually happens in the book I will split the lawsuit winnings with you 90/10 in my favor and take you under my wing for further adventures in comic book wish thinking.

    That team vampire pic is offending my senses in so many ways I don't even know where to begin. Gha!

    I could give Jubes a pass for becoming a vampire, but all of them? What the hell? There's got to be something afoot here... I don't think that any one vampire would have the time or ability to turn the entire fucking X-team into bloodsuckers.

    The first reasonable conclusion I can think of is that there's some kind of magical thing going on here...like there was some sort of accident that somehow turns the entire group collectively into vampires?

    Or maybe Marvel is going to attempt their first daring thing in 50 years turn the entire X-family into vampires, only to have them all staked and killed in subsequent episodes.

    I swear Marvel storylines seem to be pulled from a bottomless, festering asshole lately. Maybe we need to just burn it to the ground and start fresh...

    ...wait...they already tried that with Decimation. Blargh.
