1. Dazzler Vol.1 #1
Taylor Swift cameoing as Dazzler in Deadpool & Wolverine has been the most popular rumor surrounding the film. It has been a long time since any new rumor has emerged, but the book has managed to stay on our top lists just because of Swift’s star power alone. However, Swift fans are now combing through her latest album, The Tortured Poets Department, to find out any information about her cameo. In the final track of her album, Clara Bow, there is a lyric that reads, “The future’s bright, dazzling.” This small line has been speculated as the star’s way of confirming to her fans that she will be playing the character Dazzler. Obviously, this is not hard evidence, but it was enough to push this book back to the number one spot! We tracked 61 copies sold, at a 7-day trend of 110%, with a high sale of $174 for a CGC 9.8 and a current raw NM FMV of $9.

2. The New Mutants Vol.1 #98 – Rob Liefeld – Regular
Deadpool & Wolverine continues to get closer every day! As the movie approaches, more and more rumors are unraveling. The latest rumor is about the movie’s end credit scene. Several well-known leakers have shared that they have seen the end-credit scene of the movie. The scene is being praised across the board, and it is said to completely redefine the MCU. However, nearly all the leakers have a united front when sharing any information about the scene. Nearly all information from Deadpool & Wolverine has been pretty tight-lipped, but the rumors have had enough fuel to light the fire under these keys! We tracked 41 copies sold, at a 7-day trend of 24%, with a high sale of $1,382 for a CGC 9.8 and a current raw NM FMV of $386.

3. New X-Men Vol.1 #114 – Direct Edition
Cassandra Nova has been a long-rumored villain for the Deadpool & Wolverine film. This past week, the movie released a second trailer, confirming the villainess’ appearance in the film. The trailer also built a ton of hype around the film in general. Fans are ready to see the merc with a mouth join the MCU! We tracked 73 copies sold, at a 7-day trend of 22%, with a high sale of $20 for a raw VF copy and a current raw NM FMV of $25.

4. The Uncanny X-Men Vol.1 #333
The X-Men ‘97 series consistently boosts X-Men keys that have been dormant for years. The latest episode ended with a surprise villain debut: the mastermind behind the attack on Genosha, Bastion! In the comic books, the genocide on Genosha was orchestrated by Cassandra Nova. It looks like the showrunners are pointing the attack to Bastion and his manipulation of Bolivar Trask. Nevertheless, until the episode drops tomorrow, we won’t know Bastion’s endgame. We tracked 46 copies sold, at a 7-day trend of 468%, with a high sale of $20 for a raw NM copy and a current raw NM FMV of $8.

5. X-Men Vol.1 #53
SPOILERS: X-MEN ‘97 EPISODE #7 ————- There has been so much going on in X-Men ’97 that fans are caught up in processing the events vs theorizing storylines. However, that changed with the debut of the latest episode. The ending revealed that Magneto was currently held captive by the surprise villain Bastion. Bastion also monitored Professor Xavier’s whereabouts. Fans are speculating that Bastion is attempting to pit Magneto against the X-Men team and, subsequently, Professor X. This clash, at such a high emotional time in mutant-kind, might be the catalyst to bring out the monstrous villain, Onslaught! Also, every little detail on this show seems to matter and be purposeful. The end scene using ““The Purple People Eater” seems very intentional and foreshadowing of Marvel’s Purple People Eater in the form of Onslaught, or so many think. If this is true, fans have quickly grabbed his first appearance this past week! We tracked 30 copies sold, at a 7-day trend of 78%, with a high sale of $15 for a raw NM copy and a current raw NM FMV of $5.

6. Marvel Team-Up #14
In this issue, we see Invincible hop through the multiverse and end up in the main Marvel comic universe. He assists Spidey and the Avengers in a battle against Doc Ock. As most fans know, the rights to IP in comics vastly differ from those of film rights. It looks like Amazon didn’t have the right to use Spider-Man, but they still handled the multiverse hop in their own way. Instead of running into our favorite wall-crawler, Invincible hops the multiverse and ends up assisting Agent Spider in a battle against Prof Ock. It’s an elegant way of dealing with this pivotal moment while also navigating legal restrictions over Marvel IP. Fans of this moment wanted to revisit the original team-up and are picking up tons of copies of this great event! We tracked 19 copies sold, at a 7-day trend of 63%, with a high sale of $775 for a CGC 9.8 copy and a current raw NM FMV of $275

7. The Uncanny X-Men Vol.1 #221 – Direct
Mr. Sinister is playing a huge role in the latest X-Men series. The animated show depicts Mr. Sinister as one of the main villains in the series. Since the show’s announcement, Mr. Sinister was rumored to be in the show. Fans did not know his role’s importance, whether he would be a villain of the week or a mainstay player. It turns out that Mr. Sinister is playing a huge role, and fans are swarming to pick up his first appearance. We tracked 25 copies sold, at a 7-day trend of 34%, with a high sale of $60 for a raw copy and a current raw NM FMV of 435.
