X-Men Noir: Mark of Cain #2
Mar 2010 (JAN on cover)
The X-Men Noir universe greatly expands in this issue, the second of four in this series. Fred van Lente introduces new X-Men and, similar to the others, they don’t appear to have any actual superpowers, but are based heavily on their 616 counterparts. Puck appears in a few panels as first mate aboard the junk Mariko.
While the Angel is being drugged, branded, tossed into jail by Emma Frost and attacked by the bad guy X-Men, Captain Logan and his first mate Puck wait aboard their ship in Genosha Bay for the rendezvous which never comes. Puck is shown manning a radio, all dressed up with nowhere to go. He calls down to Logan who has fallen down, drunk and unable to give orders. Puck then decides to radio Cyclops in New York to get some ideas what to do.
Unlike his appearance in the previous issue, this Puck seems to have it together and makes a respectable but minor appearance.
Note: this issue has a variant cover, also by Dennis Calero.
