Relaunching once more, Brian Michael Bendis and Chris Bachalo were today appointed as the new creative team for a new volume of Uncanny X-Men. The book will feature Cyclops, Emma Frost, Magik, Magneto, along with some new characters created by the creative team. Much is still under wraps, but it looks like Cyclops will be setting up a guerilla army to take on mutant prejudice.
The book sees Magneto with a new weird helmet, Cyclops with a new head…sack…thing, and Emma Frost wearing all-black. Ooh, and Magik now have spiky armour stuff! The new characters on the cover look somewhat like the ones seen in previous covers for All-New X-Men, as far as I can tell.
In an interview with Marvel.com, Bendis doesn’t go into the details for the ongoing plot – which will be thematically connected to All-New X-Men if not actually connected right now – but does mention a few new changes for the status quo of the team. First up? Emma Frost and Cyclops are no longer a couple.
Let’s just hope Jean Grey keeps her hands to herself.
