Romija noted that Tuesday's episode of her WB series, Pepper Dennis, will feature an homage of sorts to Mystique. A clip of the episode was shown, where Romijn's character gets sprayed with blue dye.

Romijn said she filmed the pilot of Pepper Dennis prior to X-Men: The Last Stand and began the series after her X-Men work was completed.

SKYE RUNNER COVERS

DC Comics on Tuesday announced a bonus cover by Carlos D'Anda to Skye Runner #1. the series, written by Allen Warner with art by Ale Garza and Richard Friend, launches on April 26.

D'Anda's cover joins the issue's already-announced covers by Garza and Friend, and Jim Lee and Friend. Future covers will be done by J. Scott Campbell, Lee Bermejo and Arthur Adams. Lee also will provide variant cover art to issues #2 and 3.

"I'm super excited to see all the creative talent that's come out to support Skye Runner," Garza said. "Every part of the creative team, from writer Allen Warner to inker extraordinaire Rich Friend, to the amazingly talented colorist Jim Charalampidis, have all tried our hardest on this book! You can't find a bigger guy than Jim Lee to support your work, and we all appreciate it! Not only will we have all these cool covers, but my own covers for the first four issues connect for one big widescreen image, spotlighting each member of this cast! Hopefully everyone will see what we here at WildStorm are excited about and give Skye Runner a shot!"

"I think Skye Runner is going to be the sleeper hit of 2006," Lee said. "AlÚ is pulling out all the stops on the art, and Allen has created some fantastic, endearing characters. My hope is that by contributing variant covers to every issue, my fans will check out this book and see how much fun it is. Skye Runner is the perfect blend of drama, fantasy and adventure."

The D'Anda and Garza/Friend covers will feature an approximately 50/50 split on the Skye Runner #1 Standard Edition. The Lee/Friend cover is available to qualifying retailers on the Skye Runner #1 Variant Edition. Retailers may order one copy of the Variant Edition for every 10 copies of the Standard Edition ordered.
