Quicksilver manged to do with out goggles for about 50 years. Speedsters in goggles is somewhat new. Part of the overthinking of modern comics. Next I expect to see a reinforced neck on Cyclops' costume to stop to prevent recoil from his optic beams.

Then again, people like Cyclops and Rogue have always had negative consequences to their powers. Needing goggles fits with this. Regardless of whether this is a new idea or not, a movie can consider this idea fresh and decide this makes sense.

The negatives tended to be in areas like social interaction/stigma and fear of harming others. Cyclops was well know for his "panic attacks" when his visor or glasses were removed. Part of Marvel's "woe is me" approach to super heroes. The dust in the eyes thing isn't quite the same thing.

Fair point. I think it's minor either way. I suppose the Flash doesn't have goggles.

Jay and Barry didn't. Wally had lenses in his mask, IIRC.

Speed Force. That always solves every single speedster problem in the DC universe.

Starting with cover 13, they have switched to the "future" characters, starting with future Wolverine (Of course, Jackman gets two covers). Interestingly, "future "Wolverine has his adamantium claws back.
Yea I remember in the comics that it was Magneto who drained him of it. Instead of what it was in the movie itself. I wonder how he'll get it back? It should be interesting though, that's for sure . Liked the last entry and am really excited for this one.

He wasn't drained of all his adamantium, he just had his claws cut off.

Yeah, Magneto could still control Wolverine's body during the post credits scene of his recent movie.

Ah forgot about that. Thought it was a full drain there.

It's rather interesting that one of the covers features Blink, and it seems to be the earlier version of the character who is probably better known from the Exiles run. That is, the AoA version and not the 616 version, who is essentially a villain now because of Selene.

Fine by me, I prefer the AoA Blink anyway.

If I'm not mistaken the drain was only of his powers.

Yeah. They cut off his claws so they could access Logan's bone marrow. That's how it looked to me, anyway.
