Marvel Comics recently announced that it is bringing the Uncanny X-Men title back to stores. Now the publisher has revealed the cover for the series first issue.
The cover, illustrated by Leinil Frances Yu and Edgar Delgado, shows off a huge roster of the X-Men including Nightcrawler, Bishop, Storm, Beast, Jean Grey, X-23, Iceman, Psylocke, Jubilee and Cannonball.
The series will begin with a 10-part miniseries called “Disassembled”. The series will begin as a weekly publication during the miniseries before becoming a normal monthly title.
Speaking with Marvel.com writer Matthew Rosenberg said “We are making UNCANNY as huge as we can. We’re approaching it [as if] this might very well be the last X-Men story ever, so let’s make it matter. We’re doing all hands on deck, fate of the world stuff. It’s big and scary.
I think the best X-Men stories need two things that often seem in opposition, but are entirely crucial,” Rosenberg added. “First they need real danger. The X-Men go through more pain, hardships, and suffering than any other superheroes. That’s their lot in life. And they always come out the other side, but that should be tested every time. And the second thing a great X-Men story needs is creators who love the X-Men. It’s easy to hurt and kill characters. It’s easy to blow things up with no thought. When it matters, when the audience cares, is when there is real pain and heartbreak behind it. When the storytellers were as upset doing it as you are reading it, that’s when an X-Men story works. And I’d put Kelly, Ed, and my love of X-Men against almost anyone in the world.”
