Fear Itself: Uncanny X-Force

If you're hankerin' to get every little scrap of Marvel's big event Fear Itself that you can possibly lay your eyes on, the House of Ideas has a few cover images you might want to check out.  We've got cover images for Fear Itself: Uncanny X-Force #1 (of 3), Uncanny X-Men #540, Hulk #37 and New Avengers #14.

The big question here is why they feel the need to silhouette the image of Hulk with the fear hammer, as if we're not supposed to know the Hulk is among those the God of Fear, aka the Serpent, deems his malevolent team of The Worthy.  We've seen the preview images of the big green guy wielding that sucker, and judging by the hammer shape, it's the same guy on the cover of both New Avengers and Red Hulk.  Then again, we're told that ol' Thunderbolt Ross is going to throw down with "the God of Fear's most unexpected recruit."  Who else could it be?  Skaar?  Drax the Destroyer?  Also, does that question mean that the big Juggernaut-looking beatstick threatening the X-Men isn't actually Jugs himself?  There IS that cover teaser image of Colossus putting on the Jug-helmet…

Oh, and so you know, the X-Force crew has their hands full with a psychotic cult of Purifiers viewing the Serpent's return as the End of Days, and thus they're trying to murder as many mutants as possible to get them in under the wire before their souls are judged.  Methinks there'll be a bit of stabbing going on here.
