  1. Wow, I had to Google THOR 427 - 429 to see what they were about. I knew DeFalco and Frenz had used Juggernaut in their "Acts of Vengeance" contribution, but I had forgotten about the rematch guest-starring Exacalibur. (Though in my defense I never knew the rematch existed at all until I learned about it on Dobson's "Pouch Files" blog some months back.)

  2. Archangel, Cable, and Wolverine again… They were the three representatives of the main X-groups in that house ad you ran earlier. Is there a reason for this that becomes apparent as the story progresses, or was it just a matter of selecting the kewlest character on each team?

  3. I think kewlest, or just whoever Jim Lee felt like drawing for the original ad. Of course, whoever painted that trading card must have been influenced by the house ad.

    Nah, I'm pretty sure like wwk5d says, it's just a matter of those being the kewlest characters from each series at the time.

    I mean, Archangel makes sense, because of his prior connection to Hodge, and there's a chapter of Uncanny that pits him against Wolverine, so maybe that's the connection there. But even being charitable, there's really no way to suggest that Cable is more significant to the story than, say, Marvel Girl or Banshee or Cannonball, other than the fact that he's the hot new character on the block at the time.
