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.
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.
