The final issue of Marvel's super-mega-crossover event Original Sin comes out next week, which means it's time to start heavily promoting the next super-mega-crossover event, Avengers and X-Men: Axis. In their signature style, Marvel kicked things off by sending out a hastily photoshopped image teaser to the press:
Wow! We knew that heroes and villains were going to experience some kind of role reversal in this event, but we had no idea that the Red Skull would go from a Nazi supervillain who killed Captain America and exhumed the corpse of Charles Xavier and stole his brain in order to take his psychic powers, but we had no idea things would go this far. I mean, inviting his enemy, Uncanny Avengers leader Havok, to do a cleanse with him? That's really hard to believe.
It's unknown at this time what type of cleanse Red Skull wants Alex to do. Is it a three day juice cleanse? Five day? Is it a secret ploy to collect all the expelled toxins from Alex's body and use them to poison New York City's water supply or something?
Whatever the case, for a man at least in his nineties, the Skull is in terrific shape, so Alex should probably take his advice. Stay tuned to The Outhouse, because we'll be scouring the net all week for more of these teasers that Marvel sends to sites that don't constantly make fun of them so we can post them here and make fun of them. It's a vicious cycle.
Now if you'll excuse me, I have to go spend the next forty-five minutes on the throne because I took the Red Skull's advice and drank some kale, broccoli, and mango juice this morning.
The Outhouse is sponsored this week by Late Nite Draw. Recently featured on ComicsAlliances' Best Art Ever, he is a Chicago-based commissioned artist with a self-published Digital+Print one-shot coming out in October about the abominable snowman called ABOBAMANIMABBLE, and is also available for commissions.
