Uncanny X-Men #1 Art



Psylocke cameos in the first issue of Uncanny X-Men and is supposed to be fighting Magneto in a teaser for upcoming issues.

Psylocke vs. Magneto?

Well, I'm not completely sure they are actually fighting in that (less than spectacular) Greg Land picture.

So Lifeguard is back, huh? Interesting. I wonder if her boyfriend Thunderbird III and brother Slipstream are also back. And where is Northstar?

And Dust is in Utopia? I thought I saw her listed among the students that went with Wolverine in Westchester...

Anyway, I loved the scans, and despite Land's less-than-spectacular art, Gillen's future stories seem very promising. In fact, all X-Books seem to be very promising nowadays. I guess the Schism was a good move, after all.

Who made up the pictograms for the Utopia teams? They're cute! LOL!

I hope Northstar is on Wolvie's side since he's not listed!

FSaker said...

Northstar's not listed in Wolverine's side either, though. Marvel claimed that he would be in both Alpha Flight and the X-Men, but I guess they just changed their minds about that...

Well, at least he will still be featured in a book. Too bad his BFF Dazzler isn't in it; maybe his OTHER BFF (a.k.a. Nurse Annie Ghazikhanian) can move to Canada to make him some company?

Isn't it interesting that Betts is teamed up with 2 ex X-Forcers?

I would really like to know why Jubilee has sided with Cyclops instead of Wolverine. Their past history aside, doesn't Jubilee need Wolverine's blood to keep her from completely vamping out?

FSaker said...

If I had to guess, I'd say that Jubilee sided with Cyclops for the same reason as Colossus: as a vampire, she poses a threat to the mutant students in Westchester. Perhaps even Logan agreed that she would be better in Utopia (just like Scott agreed that Idie would be better in Westchester).

There is still the problem about her dependence of Wolverine's blood, though. Maybe he will ship a monthly supply of his blood to Utopia?

That's the kind of things that we'll only know if Gischler gives proper development to the Recon Team members (Psylocke, Jubilee, Warpath and Domino) in X-Men. Unfortunately, from the comments I read about this issue, so far it seems he barely developed any of these four characters, concentrating the plot in Storm and War Machine... sure, Psylocke will also be featured in Uncanny X-Force (and apparently in Uncanny X-Men), but the other three are desperately in need of more characterization and character progression.

what a spectacular image! I don't know what some of you see... but I can't wait to read!
Maybe Psylocke ends up having to defend Utopia somehow from Magneto. I read recently that he may be doing some bad things in the near future, and possibly bringing back the Brotherhood.

Isn't anyone else curious as to why Emma Frost is kissing another man? :P
