The sword has been drawn in the Dawn of X, and Apocalypse is pulling the strings! Betsy Braddock has become the new Captain Britain, and she’s formed a new Excalibur team with Rogue, Gambit, Jubilee, Rictor, and even Apocalypse. However, Apocalypse clearly has his own agenda. He’s already engineered a war with Otherworld and installed Betsy’s insane brother, Jamie Braddock, as the new ruler. Apocalypse has also sent the Excalibur team on a quest to claim the heads of the Warwolves.
Unfortunately, the Warwolves are currently in the possession of Cullen Bloodstone. Additionally, Bloodstone has a demonic side; which he demonstrated when he turned a Warwolf hunt into a hunt for the mutants themselves.
In Superhero Hype’s exclusive preview for Excalibur #8, Tini Howard and guest artist Wilton Santos demonstrate that Bloodstone’s desire to hunt mutants has run into a painful reality. Most of the Excalibur team used to be on the X-Men Blue squad, so they have a lot of experience working together. Regardless, Bloodstone has at least one more card to play.
