A Team Of Mutants Like You've Never Seen Before

Recommended Posts

Sinister is on the team?

Another villain becomes a reluctant hero . . . Neat.

You know, for an X-team "like we've never seen before," they are going extra-heavy on the cliches.

Thanks for the update. I remember those 2 characters & didn't like them then & even less now. Waste of space characters imo. As to the other posters comment, I don't need to be current with today's comics to have an opinion on 2 useless characters. And again, Mr Sinister & Scalphunter along with the rest of the Marauders were the main antagonists of the classic "Mutant massacre story arc. You telling me that now the genius powers that be at Marvel are turning them into good guys? Really,  2  characters  that have been pure evil murderers named "Mr Sinister & the other guy, "Scalphunter have now turned over a new leaf & are now good guys?

I was never particularly a fan of Nanny and Orphan Maker myself.  Mostly because there were a lot more compelling villains introduced during that timeframe (like Apocalypse and Sinister) and they just seemed to pale by comparison. 

But as to Sinister and Scalphunter, the tweet Marvel sent out announcing this didn't make it sound like they were going to be "good guys now."  They've already show in other titles that some of the villains who have been invited to Krakoa are indeed still in it just for themselves/their own agendas.  Sinister may well be no different.  The X-Men have had at least a few temporary-members in semi-recent years that turned out to still be rotten apples when the storylines were concluded.

So basically, I'd say your fears of Sinister becoming a "reluctant good guy" may be unfounded.

Earlier this year, Jonathan Hickman revitalized the X-Men franchise in HOUSE OF X and POWERS OF X, ushering in a new age of stories for mutantkind. Dawn of X kept the momentum going with six exciting launches, each exploring the X-Men’s new status quo in distinct ways, and this March, this bold era continues with the most unexpected lineup ever seen in an X-Men title… Introducing the new HELLIONS!

When the X-Men invited all mutants to Krakoa, they meant ALL mutants, even forgiving the past sins of some of their fiercest enemies. Chief among them was Mister Sinister who now tasks himself with finding purpose for mutantkind’s most dangerous outcasts: Wild Child, Nanny, Orphan Maker, Empath, and Scalphunter! Also on hand to do Sinister’s dirty work will be X-Men favorites Psylocke and Havok! Will they be able keep these murderous baddies in line or will the team’s deadly missions have them succumb to their own sinister natures?

Taking us along for this twisted ride will be writer Zeb Wells (AMAZING SPIDER-MAN, NEW MUTANTS). No stranger to dark humor and in-depth character studies, Zeb is the perfect guide into the unhinged minds that round out this cast. “I can't believe I get a chance to play in the sandbox Jonathan Hickman and company have so brilliantly created,” says Wells. “For my money it's the most exciting game in town and I can't wait to let this merry band of psychopaths loose in it.”

Joining him on this journey will be artist Stephen Segovia who’s made a name for himself in high octane books like CONTAGION and SUPERIOR CARNAGE. "I am HUGE fan of Zeb Wells' work. The moment I read his HELLIONS pitch, I was blown away,” says Segovia. “It's a new level of mutant stories and I was overjoyed and pumped to begin drawing it immediately. I can't wait for you guys to see the magic we're cooking up and I promise you'll enjoy the ride!"

If you think the book’s lineup is shocking, you ain’t seen nothing yet! Brace yourselves for more jaw dropping revelations and twists when HELLIONS #1 hit stands in March!

Yeah, that would certainly make for a very troublesome, weird, and highly dysfunctional combination.   Like...Wild Child is practically the only one there besides Havok or Psylocke that have ever really evidenced much in the way of redeeming qualities (and that depends entirely on how feral he is or isn't at any given moment).

And even Psylocke is kind of a strange one now, since it's not Betsy but rather Kwannon, who was a Hand Assassin before her body got hijacked.

I'm sure Havok's gonna be just thrilled to work with Sinister....

Betsy's one of my favourites too, but I find it deeply weird that Kwannon is going by Psylocke now. I feel like if I were Kwannon, and I'd just gotten my body back after years of someone else wearing it, I'd want to distance myself from that person's name and costume as much as possible.

Fallen Angels writer Bryane Hill has confirmed that his book will evolve into Hellions, so it seems FA is done with issue #6. Doesn't seem like a bad thing, Zeb Wells has a good reputation, and I haven't heard many good things about Hill and Fallen Angels seemed to be the black sheep of Dawn of X. Plus, Stephen Segovia is a hundred times better than Szymon Kudranski.

    • yesterday i did a bit of hunting and it was a pretty good success. i was looking for the demogoblin and skrull wave but i only found a couple. walmart has nothing yet. bare shelves. but i did stop by a couple walgeens and they did have the cuckoos. i found 5 of them, 3 at one and 2 at the other. i picked up a set of 3. i also found invisible woman human torch and superior doc ock at target and gamestop. i found it interesting that both target and gamestop had the same exact figs without variation. I did not pick them up because i plan on buying the whole wave together if i cant find them in the next couple days. I am happy with the cuckoos for now.   Here's what my local Walmart looks like all the time now. shameful. They had an abundance of marvel legends before i started collecting again. There were all ways a ton sitting in the clearance isle as well but now I'm lucky to find regular priced ones on the shelf. I have to go all the way in to another town to find any.
    • Marvel made the definitive Dracula with their Tomb of Dracula series, and I would love to see a figure with that in mind. I understand there's an "updated" version, but he's so removed from the iconic Colan/Wolfman character, he may as well be another vampire altogether. So yes please Hasbro make a Count Dracula from TOD, and make an "updated" one for the folks who like that too. Man, don't get me started on how fantastic a live action Dracula, based on TOD, would be...too extreme for Disney+ but another company could pick it up....
    • Yes, but don't you agree its about accuracy? Scarlett might not see the problem, but then she didn't see the problem of casting her as the lead for Ghost in the Shell either, so I'm not sure I can go with her judgement here. This isn't objectification; many of us have ranted on this same forum about Hasbro not giving Captain America his wings or making the Torch's head yellow. Cant speak for anyone else but I'm not saying I refuse to buy this figure or that its trash, just because its not totally accurate, but I am saying , If you're making a figure that's supposed to look like a particular thing/person, the figure should look that way.
