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.
Here’s the official description from Marvel.
“HARK! THE HUNT FOR TRUTH Excalibur emerges from the woods with a journey before them. Their destination: Starlight Citadel.“
You can read the full preview in our gallery below. Excalibur #8 will hit comic book stores on Wednesday, March 4.
