NEW ON FEBRUARY 22

CHAPTER 17: X-FORCE (2019) #14

Storm and Death Round Two

Magik versus  Pogg Ur-Pogg! Storm’s dance with Death... Part 2! The challenges are tacked on at a dizzying speed by Saturnyne, from boulder-pushing to runway catwalk competitions and even a dance-off (Cypher loses). This is also Captain Avalon’s issue to shine. See if he does.

CHAPTER 18: HELLIONS (2020) #6

Meet the Locus Vile

The Hellions are on a mission to disrupt the game of swords. So, Mister Sinister’s crew of unpredictables march onwards into Otherworld... and their arrival is met by the locals. The Locus Vile, or the “Sin-Blooded Scourge of Amenth,” stand in the team’s path and don’t seem any kind of willing to move. A double-cross by Sinister opens the next play.

CHAPTER 19: CABLE (2020) #6

Cable versus Bei the Blood Moon

Writer Gerry Duggan and artist Phil Noto push teen Cable to the edge of his will as he faces Bei the Blood Moon in a contest of swords. Cyclops and Jean Grey take swift action to save their kid. Apocalypse picks up the sword where another champion left off.
