This coming February prepare for a change that will affect all of mutant kind for years to come. Cyclops is back and he has some serious business to take care of. As part of the Marvel NOW! Initiative, superstar creators Brian Michael Bendis (Daredevil, Powers, Avengers) and Chris Bachalo (Sandman, X-Men, Avengers) bring you a brand new Uncanny X-Men series that is surely to be like no other!
The iconic, flagship X-Men book returns after the devastation left in the wake of the Phoenix force’s recent trip to planet earth. The world has changed, parts of which now lie in ruins after the exploits of this Summers blockbuster event: Avengers Vs X-Men. A new world is rising from the ashes and in steps a new team of X-men along with it. But just what are they? Revolutionaries dedicated to the preservation of mutant and humankind alike? Or dangerous mutant terrorists bent on proving the superiority of the mutant race? Whatever his mission may be Cyclops, along with the help of Emma Frost, Magneto and Magick, has been scouring the earth in search of new mutants to bolster his ranks.
[quote]“What Brian and Chris have planned for Cyclops’ team in the post-’Avengers VS. X-Men’ landscape is nothing short of its adjective, ‘uncanny’. “Mutantkind has been going through a reEvolution over the past couple years. The pressing question now is, who will lead them into the future?” – Axel Alonso, Editor In Chief, Marvel Entertainment. [/quote]
