Gentle.
I really don`t understand why to make solo covers for team book. Also with unknown character.
It wont help with sales. It is ok as variant but not as main cover.

I was going to guess a new version of Bishop. Hmmm, interesting use of a cover. Is there any details on this guy? Gentle seems very mellow in a name.

I do agree, the team should be featured more on covers. Maybe its a variant? Like a 1 vs 1 thing. Two covers printed equally ... its possible.Or the team cover is the variant, I mean if that is the main cover. LOL

It is a main cover. Variant is a solo haedshot cover.


He is from Wakanda and very srtong. Also has vibranium lines for some reason. He becomes stonger but it hutrs him more.
I don`t know a lot about him really.

Ohhhh, okay. I think the headshot covers are a great idea. Not too expensive for the fan either.

That isn't that kid from the mansion is it? The one Cassie sent to Wakanda? hmmm, I guess that is for the other thread. Or just wait and see. Aging would be a bit much for Cassie to be able to do.

Thanks for the info too!

I like the Headshot Covers as well. I picked up the Gambit one last week and it was a pretty decent price for a variant

Yup, the ratio was good better than I had stated in the Xmen Red thread. He's gritty looking and affordable as variants go.

I've lost out on the last few do to ratio of print and not willing to pay what they want on ebay for them.

Seems the story is linear so far as in, all the solicits are sticking to the same story points for Xmen: Red. Not a bad thing. The concept global enough to carry it, I hope. We'll see. LOL
