There has been much speculation that James Hudson, the Ultimate Wolverine from the Ultimate Universe and the Ultimate X series was the figure obscured in the promo’s for X-Men Blue. Cullen Bunn let it loose tonight that James Hudson is in X-Men Blue (and could possibly be donning the Wolverine outfit.)
Since the rumor started, copies of James Hudson’s first appearance in Ultimate X #1 have been blowing up. the 1:50 variant being top dog, but look out as there are two covers nearly identical, the one with barcode 111 has bone claws and is not the 1:50, and the one with metal claws and bar code ending in 151 is the actual 1:50. The next go-to copy seems to be the 1:8 Metal Claws variant which is a claw swap of the regular cover. Next up is the 1:25 foil cover. The 1:15 Villains Variant is the cheapest of the variant covers due to not having Jimmy Hudson on the cover. The Second Print and the Third Print are also doing well, both in the $20-30 range.
