    Thanks for the previews Rheged & thanks for the translation JP!

    Black Swan is such an enigmatic character. I love that her motives are still mysterious. There is even a chance left for her redemption.

    We don't know that she's being evil. I think she's in the same business the New Avengers are going to be in -- destroying alternate reality worlds that are about to collide with Earth

    That's what I was thinking. She may be some sort of unwilling herald in a manner. But in her case, the only target is the Earth of that dimension. She uses each Manifold to take her to other dimensions to find that particular Earth.

    Yeah, I don't want to characterize her as evil either.

    And they consistently become important enough that Black Swan would think of them in archetypal terms. I guess that probably foreshadows big things to come for 616 Manifold.

    It's kinda cool that he's continuing strands from essentially all of his Marvel works. Even Astonishing Tales!

    Exactly that is what I am liking. Also we have no idea how the thing inside of her is making her behave. She's also a nice contrast to the villains in Avengers who mopped the floor with the team. I like that thus far she's more of an unknown than an outright threat.

    @ Rheged:

    Mighty thanx 4 dat compellingly flawless preview.

    Dis buk is set 2 b d most intelligibly fascinating title in Marvel

    Panel 1 - "Enki, palasu annu quppu" : Let's start off with "Enki". Enki is a Sumerian God. He is the god of intelligence, crafts, mischef, water (including seawater and lakewater) and creation. The exact translation of his name is disputed, but it's generally regarded to be "Lord of Earth" (En- meaning lord and Ki meaning Earth). "Palasu" means break, "annu" means this and "quppu" means cage. She's praying to Enki to break the cage.

    Panel 2 - "Lapa annu wardum ana simtim alaku" : "Lapa" means before, "annu" means this, "wardum" means slave and "ana simtim alaku" is "die". The full phrase would then be "Before this slave dies". She's referring to herself as the slave.

    Panel 3 - "Enki, palas-" : Here, she's just starting her chanting over again but is interrupted before she completes the word "palasu" (break).

    The full prayer would be "Enki, break this cage before this slave dies".

    A veeery brilliant muv on JH's part...A villains r sumwat lively & we already understand wat dey r while B-Swan is sumwat gloomy & an enigma.

    Which is why naming here Black Swan is brilliant!

    Agreed. I think she will end up on the team. I'm personally hoping she does as well.

    She'll either wind up on the team or dead, passing her mission on to them.
