The world of the X-Men has been going through some serious changes after the events of Avengers vs X-Men, especially when it concerns the former leader of mutantkind, Cyclops. Brian Michael Bendis has been crafting a new role for the X-Man that seems to take a page out of Magneto’s former book, and has him running a quasi-revolutionary group whose goals are separate from the mainstream X-men’s. His team has been playing a secondary role in Bendis’ All-New X-Men, the new series of Uncanny is set to follow his story along with his team of rebels which feature Magneto, Emma Frost, Magik, and some new recruits that are poised to become some big players.
Marvel has released a new preview for the second issue of Uncanny X-Men by Bendis and Chris Bachalo, and we’ll see with the series some great pencils, new costumes, and more from the new and dedicated Cyclops. Did I mention I was a huge Cyclops fan? Enough fan worship from me, let’s get to the preview!
[box_dark]Marvel is pleased to present your first look at Uncanny X-Men #2, from the blockbuster creative team of writer Brian Michael Bendis and artist Chris Bachalo! Cyclops has a traitor amongst his team but does it have anything to do with the Sentinels hunting them down AND the new mutants they are trying to protect?! Plus! Take a tour of the new Charles Xavier School! Clean up in aisle X this February in Uncanny X-Men #2![/box_dark]
I’m pretty excited for this series, as the number of questions that have been built up in the first issues of All-New X-Men will hopefully be answered. Like why are the former members of the Phoenix Five really having trouble with their powers? Ditto for Magneto, who is also suffering due to his encounter with the Phoenix Force. And just who is the traitor on Cyclops team? Are they dealing with a spy for Wolverine’s team? Or the Hellfire Club? The Avengers/ The Government? So many Questions! Thankfully Chris Bachalo’s pencils look as sharp as ever, and I love that he’s back with the X-Men.
Uncanny X-Men #2 hits your LCS on Feb. 27th.
