This popped up on marvel.com, thought it was post worthy

No word is given on ongoing/mini/one-shot status, or the creative team

Could be the next phase of Carey's X-Men Legacy.

Anywho, Professor Xavier, Emma Frost?, Namor, Mimic?, Cloak, Dagger, Daken?, Omega-Red?

Weird team

Actually, they are technically mutants, their powers just manifested because of kingpin's drugs.

DARK X-MEN?!

The cover is by Dodson so could it be what Fraction's Uncanny X-Men is about after the Dark Avengers crossover?

I thought X-Force had the deadly thing covered?

EDIT: I've just realized that's Daken not Wolverine.

If that's Omega Red, why couldn't they have thought to do that for his Ultimate version?

[insert Bendis/Loeb joke here]

Good idea

it saddens me to see Omega Flight splinter apart with no real word as to why though.

Maybe we'll get Dark Alpha Flight

I hope not. I'm done with these company wide gimmicks. I'm ready for self-contained stories like Iron Fist.

Dark Alpha Flight was a joke

I wasn't attacking you. Sorry if that's what you got. It's hard to determine how a person feels when you're reading and not listening to spoken word.


But I stand by what I say because I really am sick of the gimmicks.

No, I thought you were saying that you'd hope they didn't make a Dark Alpha Flight because you're tire of company wide gimmicks. I was just making sure you knew I didn't actually think that'd be a good idea.

But in defense of Dark Reign, it's less of a company wide thing than anything like this from marvel in years. There is only one direct cross-over involving Dark Reign right now Deadpool/Thunderbolts (and I guess Dark Avengers/Uncanny X-Men in June). All of the affected books are doing there own things under the guise of being part of something bigger by using the new power-structure as an outlet to create new stories. Dark Reign as a marketing gimmick is just a banner, there is no event behind it, all the books involved are doing their own things. Though the things that do feel like shameless plugs to me are the Dark Reign associated mini's Fantastic Four, Hawkeye, Sinister Spider-Man, these scream frivalousness (sp?).

I gotta say though, I do like the idea of Namor being on an X-Men team.

I don't, Cloak & Dagger too. Just because they're "Mutants" they have to be dragged into this. I hate to type-cast characters, but these characters really should have more to do with say the Avengers/Defenders/Invaders and Street Level stuff repectivley.

Those ****ing mutant wings of Namors are the most retarded things they could have possibley given him. Seeing Venom rip off Namors inner-ankle wings in Sub-Mariner #3 was freaking awesome, I wish he'd ripped the outer ones too. But then something somehow would grow them back.

I wish more writers would use Namor's lesser known powers. Like how he can generate and electric field like an electric eel, or how he can increase his size 4 fold like a blowfish.

Ahhh the golden age, the age of bizarre never used again powers.
