New York Comic Con 2009: X-Men Teasing

While there was no real information on what will happen to X-Men Legacy after the current arc ends, there was certainly some teasing about upcoming Uncanny X-Men arcs:

Uncanny X-Men #504-507: Fraction's talking up UNCANNY, current story, Lovelorn, deals with Colossus.

Uncanny X-Men #508-511: Next arc is Sisterhood, about the Sisterhood of Evil Mutants and what they're up to with art by Greg Land.

And in the next arc is a ressurrection, an "old favorite," tease Fraction and Lowe. "Because we don't have enough characters in Uncanny," jokes Fraction.

Fraction can't discuss too many plans for Uncanny X-Men because they're top secret. Upcoming arc with Greg Land features a resurrection of some sort. An old favorite. "We don't have enough characters in the book. We need seven to eighteen more..." says Fraction.

Unncanny X-Men #512: Right after the close of Sisterhood, the X-Club (Beast's science team) have a stand-alone biggie-sized one-off crazy adventure.

Uncanny X-Men #513-onwards: Bad stuff.

"Things are about to get very difficult for Scott Summers," Fraction said of the appearance of a new redhead in the Marvel Universe, the child Hope as seen in Cable.

How big of a year will Cyclops have? Alonso: They're on a big journey and he's making a lot of big decisions. As Matt quipped earlier, it's going to be a complicated year for Cyclops That mutant girl has green eyes and red hair. Draw your own conclusions. Messiah Complex was the first chapter of a trilogy of events, with Messiah War being the second.
