Good News: Mimic to be Punched in Face!

By the Falcon, I believe. The important thing is that Mimic will not only continue to appear in X-Men: Legacy, but he’ll also take part in their Avengers vs. X-Men tie-in issues! That’s pretty exciting news.

The only Avengers vs. X-Men fight that matters

You may recall my epic coverage of the last two issues of X-Men: Legacy, both of which featured a guest appearance by Mimic. Seeing as how the Mimic is one of my all-time favorite comic book characters, I was tickled pink when the guest appearance ended with Mimic actually joining the cast of the series! But pessimist that I am, I was worried that he’d just be shuffled off into background status. X-Men: Legacy isn’t exactly one of the marquee X-books, and he’s joining a very crowded population of characters at the Jean Grey School for Higher Learning.

I was afraid he’d get lost in the shuffle.

But apparently that’s not the case! Based on this interview with writer Christos Gage, Mimic is going to be a main cast member and is going to join the fight against the Avengers! That is some pretty cool news for us few, proud Mimic fans.

If only the main AvX series was this much fun

  1. As a HUGE Mimic fan myself, I also had the same fears for him. However, I’m so glad Gage is making him a front runner in this book. šŸ˜€

    Cannot wait for the AvX crossover.

    • I’m right there with you, pal! Though I can’t wait until after AvX, when Gage can settle back into his own ideas for the book, and what role Mimic plays in those stories. I’m sure the AvX tie-in is just going to be more fighting.
