Hope gets an anniversary cover?

No offense to any Hope fans but her getting an anniversary cover is ridiculous.

I saw this the other day. Thought it was stupid. So many more X-Men that are deserving.

My feelings exactly. I had her right below Changeling on my list.

I don't see why not.  She's an important figure in the lives of all mutants.  She's been the figure-head of all stories for the last 3 or 4 years.  And unlike most comic characters... she's actually grown!  She has managed to age & grow up.  That's more "Evolution" then you see in the Wolverine cover.

I have mixed feelings on this, but I'll definitely be buying it.

Why is Wolverine Written There ?

Nothing Marvel does concerning the X-Men surprises me anymore. It's like living in a warzone. You know something terrible is going to happen at some point, so you just turn your music up really loud and tune out the constant barrages of death of despair.

@D3athstroke: Cause it's a variant cover to an issue of Wolverine.

Which is just weird. Why not have Hope on Uncanny and Wolverine on Wolverine? O_O

They're putting them on unrelated comics to try and get people who wouldn't normally buy those comics to buy them because a character they love is appearing on the variant cover. It's a marketing ploy.

Yeah, I figured. @The Dark Huntress said:

And it's apparently working =P

Does Hope even matter anymore? I'm not reading Generation Hope or Uncanny, but I don't see her name really being thrown around any more since Second Coming and the Five Lights.

@The Dark Huntress: Haha, poor DH. Sometimes it pays to be a negative, boycotting, joyless hatemonger =D

I'm not buying any :P

@The Dark Huntress: There, there. It's better to enjoy things and be sucked into marketing ploys, than not enjoy anything =]

It would have been a bit cheap to put the Wolverine variant on the Wolverine title ;)
