Mile Morales Joins the All-New X-Men

On his Tumblr blog, writer Brian Michael Bendis posted the cover to All-New X-Men #32 By Sarah Pichelli. As you can see, it “welcomes” Miles Morales to the team, which opens up a whole bunch of questions.

For those that don’t know, Morales is the Spider-Man of Marvel’s “Ultimate” universe, not exactly where the All-New X-Men are located. Is he completely leaving the Ultimate universe? Are they heading to his? Is this part of time being broken? We’ll find out soon enough!

What Happened to Rich Rider? Find Out in Guardians of the Galaxy #18 – an Original Sin tie-in!

This August, the burning question of what happened to one of the greatest heroes of in the Marvel Universe finally gets answered in Guardians of the Galaxy #18 – an Original Sin tie-in! Creators Brian Michael Bendis and Ed McGuinness bring you the blockbuster answer to the question on everyone’s mind:

What happened to Richard Rider?

In an interview with Marvel.com, Brian Michael Bendis said:

We have literally been dropping hints since the Guardians guest-starred in Avengers Assemble. I have known exactly what we were doing with this from the moment I agreed to do the book, but I thought it would be best to slow burn the reveal.

Not only does this reveal answer a question for diehard readers, it also tells something about the character to newer readers.

Nova, the Human Rocket – once one of the greatest heroes in the Marvel Universe, gone in a flash. Side-by-side with Star-Lord, Nova fought valiantly to save the entire universe from encroaching death. Sealed in a twisted and horrific version of our own universe, Richard Rider sacrificed everything to prevent the onslaught of Thanos.

The true story of that sacrifice has never been told. Though Star-Lord and Thanos miraculously returned, Nova was nowhere to be found. The truth behind his absence kept a closely guarded secret between two bitter enemies. A secret that will finally be revealed!

How did Star-Lord and Thanos escape their hellish imprisonment? And why did Nova not return with them? The explosive last stand of Richard Rider begins now! No fan can afford to miss the blockbuster Guardians of the Galaxy #18!
