Age of Apocalypse Sabertooth & Age of Apocalypse Blink
Another set of character for the Age of Apocalypse minimates that... Wait a minute... Sabertooth & Blink join the Morph also in this wave... This isn't Age of Apocalypse wave at all... well it is... but its also an Exiles wave. Exiles, the Quantum Leap of the Marvel multiverse, or whatever Marvel's version of the multiverse is called. They just picked the AOA name because people would recognize it more than they would Exiles, which is kind of sad when you think about it. AOA was 15 years ago, Exiles was in print as long as a year or two ago.
But Exiles is one of Judd Winnick's better ideas, so let's celebrate it for that. Also because it finally allowed Marvel to publish a regular title with the ultra-popular Blink in it, finally rectifying their mistake of killing off one of the X-men's most popular new characters... about a month after they introduced her. Whoops!
