    I feel like saying "Skottie's art is pretty sweet" is getting pretty repetitive, so just imagine I said something else.


    Also, I have a strong feeling that those pages will have some Blindfold speech which is great..

    Ord and Dr. Rao are in the Endangered Species back-up? Brilliant! Hopefully they're taking this chance to clarify Astonishing's position in continuity.

    I AM NOT GONNA LOOK
    I want to, but honestly I'm sick of paying money for a comic then flicking through almost a quarter of it because I've already seen it/ adverts.

    Can anyone explain why Magik is more evil and not as sweet and nice as she used to be?

    wouldnt it be funny if when Magik goes to use the soulsword she takes a swipe at some deamons and they all turn into teddy bears or something? and she goes "what the f--?"

    She's not sweet and nice b/c she has no soul....no soul...no soulsword....no nice and sweet

    Probably because she is 98% Darkchilde at this point. We still don't know what has happened to her from her last appearance at the end of Inferno to now, but I think that she is pretty much souless.

    But she still has a little bit of remorse/feeling, like when talking about her soulsword and in looking at one panel in the preview.

    Because she's the House of M hardcore Illyana who's been warped and hardened by Limbo.

    Yeah, when she said 'Only a soulsword can kill him, and I've lost mine', I was pondering whether she said she'd lost her soulsword, or whether she was really saying she'd lost her soul.

    In which case, finding and returning her (original) soulsword might make her a bit more human.

    What does House of M Illyana mean? Isn't HoM character basically 616 character with different memories?

    Yes it is. But Limbo works differently out of ALL the "dead" characters to come back Limbo (and crimson dawn) are probably the ONLY things that'd make sense.

    Yes. So she just needs her memories restored.

    Different Darksoul too. Also, once the world "changed back", she wouldn't have recognized it, might not have felt a part of it...might have sworn off Earth and her human side to embrace the Darksoul entirely....
