There's a lot of people that have a fondness for Blink. Her time in the Marvel Universe was short but seeing her during Age of Apocalypse and in The Exiles allowed her to be won over by fans. If you've been wondering what her fate would be, here is some news for you.

Marvel is prepared to bring her back. The questions is, which Blink will this be? Check out the preview below.

== TEASER ==
The fan-demanded return of BLINK drags Dani Moonstar and her team of New Mutants right into the heart of X-Men Regenesis! Beginning in New Mutants #34, from the critically acclaimed writing team of Dan Abnett & Andy Lanning and artist David Lopez, Cyclops gives the New Mutants no time to rest as he sends them on a wild goose chase across the Marvel Universe. What has Blink done to require immediate extraction and is she to blame? Sinister things are afoot this November, in New Mutants #34!

NEW MUTANTS #34 (SEP110609)
Written by DAN ABNETT & ANDY LANNING
Pencils by DAVID LOPEZ
Cover by JORGE MOLINA
FOC – 10/31/11, ON SALE – 11/23/11

That has to be 616 Blink, plus she's been AWOL since Necrosha and Cyclops knows it.

Looks awesome

I hope it's AoA blink, but 616 Blink is better than no Blink at all.

Exactly! It looks like Rogue's old uniform. Smh

With everything happening in X-Force, another AoA character crossing over to the 616-verse wouldn't be too farfetched. Then again, the 616 version has been missing for over a year (in our time) so...

Its most likely the 616 version, at least from what I can see right now.

And one thing I forgot to mention is that the New Mutants are currently charged with "tieing up loose ends" of the X-Men and that preview had an image of X-Man and Blink. There isn't any loose ends between AoA Blink and 616-Xmen really, but there are with 616 Blink. (Though I would kill for a return of the Exiles, and maybe slowly convert 616 Mimic into someone more like his Exiles counterpart)

This is from a while back. I think this was always the plan.

616 blink made her appearance in the phalanx covenant. she teleported someone to death and wound up in her own field and died. she died a month after her first appearance. she returned during necrosha. the blink everyone knows and loves is the AoA version

The artist did a bad job making a costume that pays homage to this fellow:

I'm happy to say that this is probably the 616 Blink, the one a fell in love with so many years ago during the phalanx covenant. Not only because she's an interesting character with a cool power, but because at that time she was an innocent, sweet scared little girl with tremendous power. Sadly she has somehow grown up while she was dead :-(

I feel i've missed her growing up and becoming more confident, like we should have seen in Generation X. Lobdell said he wanted to bring her back in that book, sadly this never happend. Now she looks like a streetwalker, and not like the Blink i remember, but i'm still happy to see her back among the living.

I do wonder however if she isn't redundant, does anyone know another fan favorite young girl with purple hair, eyes without an iris, can teleport and has a sharp dagger like weapon? She just has a lot in common with Pixie imo.

Still happy to see her again, i was always more interested in her then the AoA Blink, i'm curious what they will do with her.

I wish "our" earth's blink would grow hear hair out, I just looks better than her perpetual 90s cut

If it's AoA Blink, Marvel has guaranteed that I will pick up whatever title she appears in. If it's 616, I really couldn't care less.

This is the best news I have heard in a while. I wonder if the recent use of Mimic in the Dark X-Men was on purpose to give him some exposure to set up a meeting with both Blink and Mimic. That was one of my favorites relationship in the X-Titles. I know Mimic from Earth-12 died, but I want to see if something can spark between her and Mimic (616).

We all know who the culprit is. :P

#25 Posted by papad1992 (6828 posts) - - Show Bio

Actually Blink is a descendant of Apocalypse.... and with Sinister back.... we only can speculate!! But really, that shirt is 5 sizes to small!! I know she is kinda "homeless" but where did she find that outfit!? What happened to her iconic AoA green tunic?? Can't we modernize it a tad and use that instead!!?

it's 616, its a story about tying up loose ends like x-man and sugarman running around the 616, and since Blink has been on the run since her i think necrosha new mutants have to find her and she will probably join them if Sinister doesn't recruit her first

Aww, that's sad, I loved 616 Blink and was incredibly sad when she sacrificed herself for Paige, Sean, Emma, Jubilee, Sabretooth and Monet.....Then I was happy when they had her in AoA and Exiles, I am so happy 616 Blink is back! At least give her a chance. :o(

::googles:: Shoot. Looks like I should have read that 'To Serve and Protect' side-series to find out what happened to Clarice post-'Necrosha'. I'm just glad her storyline is back on track. I like the character. Plus, the X-Men were whittled down to just two teleporters; Magik and Pixie, both of whom are on Utopia. Anyone think Clarice will stick around on the island, hook-up with Logan's school or keep running around all 'rogue mutant'-like?

#32 Posted by GREGalicious (473 posts) - - Show Bio

IM EXCITED!!!!! This looks like 616 BLINK (and im really feeling the new suit) and hopefully after that Necrosha business, she'll be a little less...broken (for lack of a better term)...

@pixelized: There's no way that Ariel's actually dead. So I have every belief that they'll bring her back sooner or later. Hell, they would even if she had died.

If you have no love for the character then no, not really. It might as well be any other random character that I don't care about.

@The Dark Huntress: i also love aoa blink alot but atleast were getting some blink(although chances are they would make earth 616 blink like the aoa one with time so we don't feel her absence so much)

#41 Posted by Mercy_ (92676 posts) - - Show Bio

@jubilee042: Right, but the fact that they're using 616 also means that it's going to be that much longer until they use AoA.

Hopefully this storyline repairs all the damage that Fear Itself did to New Mutants. The book has been awful for months now.

Found my reason for reading Marvel Comics again. Blink and Sunfire are two of my favorite mutants! I hope she stays around for many years to come!

#46 Posted by HexThis (892 posts) - - Show Bio

It is 616, it must be. Doesn't Exiles/AoA Blink not have those markings on her face? One thing that confuses me is why Blink isn't around Monet or Jubilee or something, it's the only link she ever really had to the X-men...she sorta died for them you see.

#49 Posted by Sixsoda (45 posts) - - Show Bio

I think that we all have to ask ourselves if bringing a character like her back is a good idea. It seems to me like the "New Mutants", is just becoming a stage for a lot of the old Mutants that the writers want to bring into the fold again. Why not throw Morph on the team.

#50 Posted by XsPectre28 (719 posts) - - Show Bio

wondering if this is AOA blink but Selene somehow override her memories with the 616's memories?????? there are many ways to make it into the AOA blink but AOA blink has been to the 616 universe before 7 besides AOA blink had NO TIES WHAT SO EVER TO EMMA FROST
