Sep 2009

The third chapter of six in Utopia, a crossover between the Dark Avengers and Uncanny X-Men set in the Dark Reign storyline, this issue continues the evil manipulations of Norman Osborn and his Dark X-Men, who play a prominent role while the Dark Avengers chill back at their headquarters.  Northstar appears as a regular member of the X-Men, having joined up in Uncanny X-Men #508.

The entirety of Northstar’s appearance is a single panel cameo, with artwork lifted directly from Dark Avengers/Uncanny X-Men: Utopia #1.  It’s the scene right after Ares lands in San Francisco to lay down the gauntlet in front of Northstar and other X-Men.  The image appears on one of many virtual monitors floating around Osborn’s suite at his West Coast H.A.M.M.E.R. headquarters on Alcatraz Island, showing various scenes from previous events in the Utopia storyline.

    That’s right. No Alphans in Uncanny X-Men 513, just Weapon Omega the Alpha Flight killer (see FAQ 7). Don’t worry folks, no Alphans were killed or harmed by Michael Pointer during the making of the 6 part Dark Reign Utopia crossover.
