I had included this in my Fanart Thursday post, but since I've now had it confirmed that it IS an actual cover, I'm giving it it's own post! :)


Art Adams posted this on his Facebook page, and it's STUNNING!



And it would appear it's an "All-New X-Men #20" 50th Anniversary Variant (which has a preview here if you're interested) Not often I go hunting for variants, but in THIS case!

Lovely stuff there. Shame it's not the real thing.

Poor Rahne, cropped out of existence.

Poor Karma, not sure what she's supposed to do against a robot.

I like to think Warlock is just getting Doug close enough to the Sentinel to open an access panel and hack it. And Danni probably has some uru arrows stored away for occasions like this.

Come to think of, while Magik's soulsword is very pretty, unless that sentinel is made of magic then it's not going to do any good either.

Didn't I see her ripping sentinels apart in a recent Uncanny X-Men? I'm pretty sure that sword kicks butt and takes names against anything she wants it to. I could be confused and I'm at work, but I'll go digging through my resources tonight...

Well icon, I have been so inspired by your posts for the past year I have spent a good portion of the evening doing some research and learning how to properly post an image (no sarcasm, btw, this is a big thing for me).

So it seems that Magik's sword can cut through a sentinel. She does the same sort of thing to a Blockbuster Sentinel in Uncanny X-Men 11.
Now I need a scanner so I can avoid these kind of crumby phone pics. OMG I just checked the preview and I actually did this right! :)
Just an FYI the pic is from Uncanny X-Men #1

The repeated use of "genetic clone" in the preview aggravates me. Mainly because this is the X-Men, and clones are such a freaking X-Men trope that you don't exactly need to specify anything more. X-23 is a clone of Wolverine. We get it. Just like Stryfe is a clone of Cable, Maddie Pryor is a clone of Jean Grey, and I think I'm a clone now....

Bendis' writing tics are not growing on me with age.

I love this way better than X-23 making out with young Scott. I especially like the Pegasus' "I'm gonna kill you dead" face. Is this one of those variants that's going to set me back $20 though? If so I'll stick with smoochy Scott.
