Oh gosh, what mystery is this we spy? Some kind of book written by All-New X-Men’s Brian Michael Bendis and Wolverine & The X-Men’s Chris Bachalo, according to Marvel.com. And the teaser word is ‘Uncanny’. Well flip me, how are we ever going to guess what the ‘Uncanny’ refers to?
Yep, the newest Marvel teaser is here! Revealing what looks like a third flagship title for the X-Men, strangely enough. This is almost certainly the book which focuses on Kieron Gillen’s Extinction Team X-Men line-up of Cyclops, Emma Frost, Magik, Magneto and Danger. With, I’d imagine some other unannounced characters too, most likely a villain like Exodus. Bendis is used to managing two titles at the same time, of course, having spent the last ten years managing the Avengers this way. It’ll be interesting to see how he manages with seven or so other X-Men titles all competing with him, but he does have all the big-name characters at his disposal.
Ooh! Maybe he’ll throw in some Hepzibah. She’s Cyclops’ stepmother, after all. Uncanny X-Men will come out in February, by which point All-New X-Men will have settled into a monthly schedule, and run alongside the book.
