UNCANNY AVENGERS #8AU

Marvel is pleased to announce Uncanny Avengers #8AU from the blockbuster team of Rick Remender, Gerry Duggan & Adam Kubert! This May, the Uncanny Avengers must band together and make their way throughout this new dystopian world. But when The Apocalypse Twins and Kang are involved, will they make it out of the Age of Ultron in one piece? And when Havok and Rogue set off to save the Morlocks, what secret will Rogue unearth about the Twin’s hidden past?
“We’ve been setting up the role of Apocalypse, the Apocalypse Twins in the Marvel Universe, and with this issue readers get their first in-depth look at them AND a MAJOR reveal in regards to Kang's involvement in it all,” explained Remender. “It also hints at a big future romance we're developing. Do not miss this issue.”
With the robotic revolution in full force, no fan can miss how Age of Ultron will ultimately change the Marvel Universe leaving no hero or villain unscathed!
“When Rick first told me about the Uncanny Avengers I was floored - it's such a fun book with so many threads are being woven together. Fans are only starting to see the hints of where this run is going,” explained Duggan. “Age Of Ultron asks one of the greatest questions fans have been wondering for decades, what if Ultron won?! And throughout the event, people are going to love seeing these dominoes...and characters fall. The story I’m cooking up with Rick and Adam is a fun, but important story that marries two timelines, and I'm just thrilled to be a part of it in some small way.”
So what are you waiting for? Head on over to your local comic shop and reserve a copy of Uncanny Avengers #8AU!

Now, an appearance and reaction from Angel and young Angel would be interesting.

Also, am I the only one who loves that Remender tells a story without limits, that he uses years of story-lines and many titles to continue his story, that his finale in UXF wasn't really a definite finale?

Yeah, I love how remender does the whole multi title, long form storytelling thing too. And he does it in such a way that you can still enjoy each title without having to read absolutely everything. Smart guy.

Like a more straightforward and accessible Grant Morrison.

Yeah, know what you mean.

Age Of Ultron asks one of the greatest questions fans have been wondering for decades, what if Ultron won?!

Uh, what? I'm sure people have asked the question before, but it's not exactly an Ultron-exclusive question...

I wonder if the Apocalypse Twins could be the Japanese twins that Legion rescues in X-men:Legacy? After all, the outfits of these characters clearly have a Japanese influence, and they're both a boy-girl pair. Just a thought, but it's kind of been indicated that they're going to be important at some point in the future...

I believe the Apocalypse twins are the "The Dark Angel Saga" where Archangel had sex with Pestilence (one the four horsemen) and she got pregnant and escaped with Dark Beast...no mentioned afterwards about what happened, but Reminder did mention parts of the Dark Angel Saga coming to Uncanny Avengers....anything with Kang's involvement I have no idea.

That's more than likely exactly who they are. Pestilence did make love with Archangel & get pregnant with his offspring. I bet Dark Beast brainwashed or influenced & enhanced them to his own specifications & probably made a deal with Kang to let him use them in exchange for some tech.

WHAT? I read that entire arc I don't remember that. Pestilence was the geisha right?

Yeah man, Pestilence was the Geisha. They mention it when the remaining horsemen are retreating with Dark Beast. Go re-read those last few issues of that arc. Archangel was putting that jaw to use! LOL

jus had a thought about these kids. while on the one hand i do believe that these kids are connected to Archangel, i also had this thought... those kids dont look like twins. i dont mean in appearance, but in height. how could she have had 2 kids by him when he wasnt Archangel and therefore couldnt have sired a 2nd kid?
