Go back a tiny further to X-Men V2 #1 where this would be his earliest appearance in comics

(non story). It gets a little tricky. The pin-up ("Things To Come") below is the first time time you

see Omega Red but the pin-up itself is only in cover A & E.

X-Men V2 #5 is 1st full cover app of Omega Red.

This is one of our fun segments where we "steal" a topic from another media source and we add our 50 cents (aka tweak) to the topic. Let's run it!


A while agCBSI Comics did a True Firsts article on Omega Red. They stated What If? V2 #33 was the 1st appearance of Omega Red(NOTE:They updated saying it's in story tie with

X-Men #4). I just want to declare X-Men V2 #4 is Omega Red's 1st full appearance. Now with that said Omega Red has made many cameos and an early appearance in comics before his 1st full app.


X-Men V2 #2 he's seen on one page inside a casket. 

Now, If you had cover E not, only did it have the pin-up but it also had concept designed sketches

of Omega Red by Jim Lee.
