Hit the jump for the momenty goodness.
BIRDS OF PREY #127
This is from the Origins and Omens back up, but the only thing I wanted to know about is what the hell happened in that top panel? What happened to the guy with his head blown off? Is that an "origin" or an "omen" of things to come? Don't recall ever hearing of anything like that and that's quite the graphic image for a mainstream Batman-related title.
DARK AVENGERS #2
Uh, Hydra and SHIELD? Is that referencing Secret Warriors or did Norman just go and recruit a bunch of random Hydra guys for no reason?
Sentry's "throw people into the Sun" gimmick should be retired in favour of "rip people's heads off".
GUARDIANS OF THE GALAXY #10
Magus (see my first choice from my 5 Potential Mystery Villains for Annihilation: Conquest if you want more information on who Magus is) confirmed for War of Kings? The purple glow and the "eye shadow" could only be referencing Magus. Add Magus' connection to the Universal Church of Truth and I can't imagine anyone other than him being in this new cocoon. I suppose they could bait and switch and make the current Adam the actual Magus and this new cocoon be the real Adam Warlock, but that's a bit too convoluted for my tastes.
Not sure who the new guy is supposed to be, but the charred corpses in the second page are his wife and baby daughter, both fried by the feedback of his electricity. He obviously blames Invincible.
I think this is an obvious fake out about Superwoman not being Kryptonian. Her mask had lead lining to prevent people from seeing who she was. I imagine the entire suit is lined with it, too.
Okay, Layla Miller is back and all grown up. The art actually resembles human beings again, too. I might have to start reading X-Factor again.
