Today is a landmark day, ushering in the first issue of the newest X-title, Wolverine & The X-Men. If you haven’t heard, Cyclops and Wolverine have had a falling out due to events in Schism, prompting Wolverine to gather a few mutants and move back east, more specifically Westchester, NY, to the Xavier School for gifted youngsters.

But now that Wolverine is leading a team of his own, what can he expect to face in the future?

Well, there’s no need to worry about that as series writer Jason Aaron has quite a bit in store for him. Check out the image below for a hint or two.

Definitely some interesting stuff on deck. While the image doesn’t place anything into context, fans can expect an appearance from Frankenstein as well as some sort of confrontation with Cyclops. A new team of bad-guys shows up, consisting of what looks like a Skrull along with a few freaky looking creatures. The Brood are back, after their brief appearance in Astonishing X-Men. And Kitty Pryde gets laid up with some kind of illness, prompting a team of X-Men to enter her bloodstream, Innerspace style.

But, what is up with the wheelchair in the top corner. It most likely represents Charles Xavier, but what could it mean? We last saw Xavier helping his son, Legion, gain control of his abilities in the hope of stabilizing his fractured psyche. Will Xavier catch up with Wolverine in New York and join him on his mission? Or will Xavier suffer some sort of tragedy and lose the use of his legs again?

This image is only the tip of the iceberg for Wolverine and his team. However, it certainly sets up an interesting run, one that I am definitely looking forward to. I can’t wait to see the ringer that Jason Aaron puts Wolvie through.
