Well seeing as Angel has been featured in pretty much zero previews and anything X-related down the line, I'd say it's pretty obvious which way this is going. God I hate what Remender and Co. have done to my favourite character.

@Iron Fist Angel: Really? He's become infinitely more interesting through this ordeal in my opinion.

Although these single quote ads are silly

THat is Archangel stabbing Fantomex...but is it actually happening or is it one of Fantomex's illusions?

I don't care what's going on, I just wanna READ THE FRIGGIN' COMIC!!!

Archangel dying seems like it is the obvious course for the story. I have loved Remender's writing on this, it is my favorite Marvel book. I think he's made Archangel very interesting and the Dark Angel Saga has been awesome, the only draw back is that it seems the only way for it to end is by actually killing him off.

Wow, its either Fant stabbing Arch or Arch stabbing Fant. One way or another, this makes me highly interested!

Angel has been boring for years. This is the most interesting this to happen to Warren since the original Archangel stuff.

I love this book to pieces, and this entire arc has been a masterwork.

I just want to read this, it is so awesome

I have yet to read this, but a character death at a climactic moment is all too common. Will there ever be an event featuring no deaths? Or perhaps the death of a villain for once? I doubt it. Why not end it with Apocalypse dying?

...and the entire Dark Angel Saga turned out to be an elaborate danger room exercise, with the safeties off. Alright, anyone want to get a burger? *steps out of Danger Room*

Damn Marvel and their enticing teasers.

Thanks for pointing out the obvious Marvel. We've absolutely no idea what's going on.

Posted by Bestostero

No...I don't... but I have a pretty good idea!!! lol

Hoping Warren doesn't die off into comicbook limbo. Loved that scene of Warren having a flashback in his younger years with Xavier. Please don't die Warren!

Posted by frozenedge

It seems like something Marvel would do even after what they did to Bucky in Fear Itself. Build up a character not too popular to the point where they become awesome and then kill them. I'd like to see Warren actually live but maybe be in a coma for a few issues and then come out of it but with his Archangel powers under control due to all the Apocalypse tech he started using.

Well yes I do realize it makes for great reading but plain ol' Angel has been my favourite character in comics for almost 30 years. I'm one of the few people out there I think who does not prefer Archangel.

Uncanny X-Force is the most appealing Marvel book out, tbh. The only book I can think of that I look forward to at least as much is SHIELD.

I may need to stop trade-waiting this title...

I thought I was the only one who didn't like the direction that he took Warren in. I hated Uncanny X Force and dropped it after the first arc. I heard it's gotten better, and I enjoyed the Deathlok Nation arc but just wasn't impressed enough to give it another try as a monthly. I really wish Fantomex was prominently featured in another book so I can read him. I loved the way Gillen wrote him in Uncanny.

Agreed.

@Iron Fist Angel: @JonesDeini: Have either of you actually considered that this may be the death of ARCHANGEL but Angel may return????

@JonesDeini: Also, while you're obviously entitled to your opinion, it saddens me that you dropped this amazing book (it really is the best Marvel has, atm, which is also sad), but I hope what they do here changes your opinion?

I prefer my Angel without the Arch. I'd happily see Archangel die and leave my warren unscathed. Not every mutant has to be capable of killing someone 17 different ways.

Posted by victoriancuckoo

why can't I get into X-Force, Archangel looks really cool in the art there

Posted by Tazirai

Gotta say I love Archangel as Apocalypse. He would make an awesome heir to the Celestials. What would be great is if he ascended to become one.

Posted by fury714

Oh god, now I have to wait for about a month just to know WHAT'S GOING ON. Marvel you never fail with these teasers. I LOVE THIS BOOK.

You really should. I waited until the first arc came out in hardback but started picking up the singles right at the start of this story arc and have been loving issue.

I think I actually have the first five issues of this arc in single issue form. My shop cleaned the shelves out and put a bunch of stuff in the dollar issue longboxes. Pretty sure that I have at least the first four issues of this arc, maybe more.

Agreed.  Thins story arch is making a character relevant to what is happening in the mutant world. Best comic writing in years. Remender is a genius.
