Revelations 6:7; “When the Lamb opened the fourth seal, I heard the voice of the fourth living creature say, "Come!" 8 I looked, and there before me was a pale horse! Its rider was named Death, and Hades was following close behind him. They were given power over a fourth of the earth to kill by sword, famine and plague, and by the wild beasts of the earth.”

Come on how could I resist when we are talking about the Four Horsemen? There have been 4 incarnations of the 4th horseman, Death, in the Marvel Universe; Angel, Gambit, Caliban and Wolverine. Angel led, the first incarnation of the Four Horseman created by Apocalypse. Those four horsemen were forced to fight each other for the position of leadership and Angel prevailed. Angel became Archangel, his destroyed wings were replaced with metallic wings that were used as razor-sharp projectiles, his skin turned blue and his lust for the death of those he considered inferior fueled the reborn Angel. Today, we get another Marvel Evolutions exclusive preview and no it is not Gambit, Death instead we have …



Archangel, Death
5-Cost
Character
X-Factor/Horsemen of Apocalypse
Concealed
Shift
While Archangel is shifted with five counters, at the start of the recovery phase, you may KO target stunned character.
Flight/Range
10/9
Illus: Patrick Zircher
MEV-002

There are many things I could tell you about Archangel, but I believe I have been ranting and raving on this blog a lot recently about Angel since he appeared in the new X-Force series as a member of the team, back in his glorious and most heinous self, Archangel. Check out the series here! For those lost, here is a quick summary. It is revealed by the Purifiers that Angel possesses a DNA agent called the Apocalypse Strain that has bonded to him, probably from his time as death. Because of this Apocalypse Strain and recent events in X-Force Angel is capable of changing back and forth from Warren to Archangel. When he changes into Archangel though his personality also changes into that of the murderous and violent Archangel we all once loved who served Apocalypse.



I like this card a lot for a number of reasons, most of which have to deal with the KO effect, which is pretty obvious, if you intend to play Shift. which I think many of us will you can generate a pretty powerful effect by using Archangel, notice he is not limited in cost to whom he can KO. That is a really powerful finishing move on the table. It is going to take sometime to get to, but it looks to be an ability well worth the wait. On top of that Archangel, Death has solid stats with Flight and Range that really make him a viable turn 5 play even if you don’t want to build him up to get those 5 Shift counters., but alas we have a little something more for you to feast your fancy on that will turn heads a great deal more…



The Black Rider
2-Cost
Plot Twist
Play the Black Rider only if you haven’t played another card named The Black Rider this game.
To play, exhaust a character you control with version Death.
KO up to two target stunned characters.
“… and he who sat on it had a pair of scales in his hand.”
Illus: Salvador Larroca
MEV-237

This represents a very powerful effect for a character you opponents will definitely want to get rid of before he begins wreaking havoc on their board. Even though this represents a tech card in a deck because of its limitations to one per game, it is still a powerful effect. Death can literally sit and wait in the shadows for the war to be done and claim his spoils from the battlefield. Coupled with Archangel this truly represents a board clearing event on turns 5 and 6 making your opponents question their strategy a little more. I’m excited for Marvel Evolutions and that’s saying a lot!

One thing I would like to point out, Death never rode the Black Horse that was Famine, Death rode the Pale Horse. Pop culture has all of the Horseman riding like colored horses, but in truth it actually works out just a tad differently. I do however love the art as it shows a great diversity of the people who have served Apocalypse as Death. In the Black Rider plot twist it is Gambit as Death instead of Archangel. I do hope we get a Gambit, Death in the set, but I will not be passing up any Archangel’s down the line. Plus we never know what will come in the form of legacy content, I definitely did not expect to see the Horseman make an appearance in this set, especially after the release of Marvel Age of Apocalypse, I bet a lot of people are grabbing at the bith for those cards now! While we haven’t seen any cards that allow the sharing of Version quite like we did in DCR with Identity we may get a surprise down the road?

You identify, people always make comments when anything is predicted to come to pass in 2012, like “obviously that is if the world is still here.” You do realize that the Mayans predict the humanity will end on Dec. 21 (or 23rd)? So in all strong if anything is booming to encounter in 2012 there is solitary the slimmest feasibility that the world hand down have ended first it happens.
