Guess who's back... Back again, yes?|
I wasn't much interested in the announcement of a S.W.O.R.D. ongoin, announced at Wizardworld Chicago, despite the presence of Beast and the promise of Lockheed as the team's Wolverine. Until I read this interview.
"And in the first issue, as I needed a bounty hunter for a plot beat..."
I wonder who they could be talking about.
