Upon discovering that this new evil has been loosed into the world, Rogue and Magneto round up a team of X-Men to hunt it down. But is this motley new crew of X-Men prepared for what awaits them?

I like the UXM cover! Place Wolverine in it (just to boost sales) and there you go, a new and interesting cast for the main X-book! Too bad she will most likely just have some small cameos in this issue (or she won't even appear), considering Gillen's words...

"First to Last" looks interesting, despite Medina's art.

I also saw that X-Factor + Beast will appear in issue 6 of The Children's Crusade... I wonder if the X-Men themselves (including Betsy, of course) will show up as well by the end of the maxisseries...

Dodson never fails to create a wonderfully drawn Betsy :D

The X-Men have escaped the AGE OF X and returned to Utopia!

ARGH! I was waiting to read this story in trade, but now Marvel has blown the ending in a solicit before it's even over!

FSaker said...

@Adam - Well, we all knew that the Age of X wouldn't last forever... we still don't know what they mean by "escaped the Age of X". They escaped from what exactly, a location, an alternate dimension, a collective illusion...?

Looks like they are pushing Hope Summers to be the it X-girl and X-Men for the next decade.

Knowing Uncanny Psylocke may be on the cover, but likely won't even be in the issue.
