Isn’t that awesome? Check out the official poster and premise and cast below, and I’ll close us up with some editorial at the end.

*** end of transmission ***

PiercingMetal Thoughts: Despite my hesitation to snag a whole bunch of the variant covers, I’d like to see how the rest of these get presented. I’ve always loved the near omnipotent force that was The Phoenix and it’s great to find the original character returning to the Marvel Universe. The timing is perfect for the character since she is going to be the main premise of an upcoming X-Men film which is appropriately titled “X-Men: Dark Phoenix”. Now they’ve only shared a small batch of the covers which is why the post only has that many visuals. I will try to secure some more as time goes forward. What do you readers think of these? Are they on your interest list? Let me know down in the comments section below. Until next time.,
