Remember when Wolverine got impregnated by the Brood and then almost turned into one before his healing factor kicked in? No? Well, then you’re missing out on some damn fine storytelling! Forget all about the X-Men fighting the Avengers, cause there was a time when things were all about space, and aliens… and Dazzler! We put the blame solely on Professor X spending all of his free time hooking up with Shair War Queens instead of teaching his students to stand up for themselves Magneto-style.Well, now you can relive those Ridley Scott moments in the privacy of your own home, (and behind locked doors if you’re way more into it than the law will allow) with wave #47 of Diamond Select Toys’ Marvel Minimates! We hate Longshot with a passion, so you can guess who is gonna fall first!
Read on for all the info on this alien infestation, straight from our Brood-incubating pals over at Diamond Select Toys!
Of all the aliens that have invaded Earth in Marvel Comics over the years — the Skrulls, the Kree, the Chitauri, the Dire Wraiths — none are quite so unpleasant as the Brood. But that unpleasantness makes them the subject of some great stories, which is why the next series of Marvel Minimates features the Brood alongside their frequent foes, the Uncanny X-Men!
The 47th series of Marvel Minimates includes three all-new comic-based two-packs: Rogue with Colossus, Longshot with Dazzler, and Wolverine with a Brood, plus a rare, one-per-case variant two-pack where Wolverine has been infected by a Brood egg! A race of scavengers and parasites, the Brood implant their eggs inside a living host, and that egg transforms its host into another Brood. The X-Men were already public enemy number one to the Brood after doing battle with them in the cold reaches of space, but when a Brood ship crashed in Australia, they found themselves facing a potential infestation of Earth. And it didn’t help that the Brood can assume their host’s mutant powers — now the X-Men had to deal with mutant Brood!
Each Minimate stands 2 inches tall with 14 points of articulation and a variety of removable and interchangeable parts and accessories — Dazzler will include two separate looks, and Colossus comes with both bare and shirt-wearing chests, as well as a “fastball special” hand for holding Wolverine. The figures in this assortment will only be available in comic shops and specialty stores, so don’t miss out! Pre-order them today!
