    I'm hyped can't wait for Wednesday, just two minor things:
    1. Magik doesn't quite sound like herself, but I guess is reasonable that after ruining her brother's wedding she might be acting weirder than usual (if she appears again in the future and behaves in the same way then I'd be disappointed)
    2. Like Devaishwarya pointed out, Rogue's looks too much like a Disney princess, for the first issue that has a lot of stuff from the wedding works just fine but in the long run I'm not so sure. If we could get Pere Perez for the second arc then that would be great.

    Looking forward to it The preview is awesome. I agree with Fokken - absolutely love Storm's dialogue.

    Lol, majik could be 'part time' a reoccurring character but not there all the time.

    That thing was its bling was kinda cute. She's so helpful.

    So, I wasn't the only one surprised by Magik's voice?

    This is all I wish people would admit, it annoys me that readers will try to make sense of Illyanna's complete 180 in personality since Bendis got his hands on her. There's were no in story reasons and she was/is still mostly a complete departure from what she was from her return up until Gillen. Some like Bendis' take personally I thought it was too regressive for regressive sake, his obvious arc of broken powers for no other reason than to depower his cast was even more on the nose. I feel he wrote her however he wanted fit whatever story he was telling at the moment and most writers Rosenberg notwithstanding followed suit.

    Are these actually going to be recurring characters in the book, or is this just speculation?
    Still hoping for that Helix Reunion...

    No, I believe they are all just going to be around for the flashbacks to the actual wedding in #1. This is just a summation of the wedding party put together (if you consider Bling! the ring bearer? ) and looked at with the idea that they actually would make a wonderful team. Perhaps a little excessive with both Magik and Nightcrawler, but Ilyanna as said could pull part time duty

    I like it. Rogue and Magik's faces on that page remind me of Bachalo a little bit.
    Nice to see Gambit's connections with Bishop and Bling acknowledged as well.

    Have you read "Magik: Storm and Illyana" before? Magik isn't strictly an "anti-hero". She was partially tainted due to Belasco but usually keeps her dark side at bay.

    It’s easy. Magik got her soul back. It’s not that Magik is an anti-hero, she was losing her humanity to her inner darkness ever since Belasco stole her soul.
