So, these gals are also 616 characters? Man...

This doesn't tell us much does it? It looks good, though.

Heh, it'd be pretty funny if the whole series was just a rehash of old Pam Grier movies and then in like, the last five pages of #5 Gah Lak Tus lands and the just blows up and there's a letter from Ellis that says "You waited two years to see this, now don't you feel dumb? GO BUY TRANSMET!"

Hey, which is Misty Knight, the black chick or Kojac?

EDIT : Okay, nevermind, she's the black one. Thank you Google. But man, some of these characters are pretty obscure. They might as well invent new ones instead.

You win at political correctness for the day. She's the black girl. Moondragon, which is who MWOF things the bald girl is, was bald there for some obscure reason.

Re: ultimate extinction #1 preview pages

She indeed looks like a riff on a Pam Grier character (like Entropy hinted). She looks cool from the little info I got from the net. If she had a bionic arm as in 616, she must be tied to one of the few super science source in UU, most likely Stark or SHIELD.

Reading up on Moondragon, she was associated with all kind of wacky interstellar stories. So I guess it makes sense to have her involved with that Ga Lak Tus story. But she looks black too (By the pic in Wikipedia) or at least mixed while the bald girl in the preview is clearly white. I can see UU turning a 616 character from white to black (like Fury) but not the other way around. There just isn't enough non WASP UU characters for that.

Well, however she is, it's likely that she just assassinated someone in the previous page.

She shoots someone, Misty bends through the window to see what's going on, spots her, action scene ensue. Weee.

Seriously, I'm intrigued. This story was headed full throttle into high powered heroics and at the beginning of the next arc it looks like they bring it back (for a time) to a street level thriller.

It's been 2 1/2 months (or so) since they announced the artist...I would think (assuming he jumped right on the book since the cover was done) that #1 would be done, maybe #2 also.

I'm almost positive the bald chick is SS. Especially since there's no mention of Moondragon in the solicits.

Who says there has to be for her to be in it? :sure:


And why would SS need a gun?
