Marvel Solicits for December 2015

Uncanny X-Men #1 & 2
Writer: Cullen Bunn
Art & Cover: Greg Land
Variant Cover: Ken Lashley
In a world that’s never hated or feared mutants more, there is only one constant: BIGGER THREATS REQUIRE MORE THREATENING X-MEN. Refusing to accept one more mutant death, the most ruthless mutants on Earth have banded together to proactively mow down their enemies. But with a team populated by relentless killers, one question applies above all others: Can they stay away from each other’s throats long enough to sever their targets?

This is the variant cover, right? It doesn't look like Land's art at all. Anyway, whoever did it did a great job!

These new uniforms are great (although Fantomex just seems to be wearing his original uniform and Mystique's isn't much different than her usual dress), and Psylocke's is particularly great, as it references her iconic Hand bathing suit but also the Anka uniform. After a long time changing from the bathing suit to uninspired outfits (like the classic X-Men uniform when she was resurrected or the New Exiles one) and back to the bathing suit, I can gladly say that Betsy's latest uniforms (Opeña's second one, Anka's Marvel NOW one, the X-Force one from Spurrier's run and now this) are all very cool designs.

I still hope that Gambit and Jubilee can join this team later on, though. I like both characters, and both would fit very well with this "outlaw X-Men" theme.

It is pretty intriguing to think about which threats to three of the main X-Men villains together would be enough for them to join the X-Men!!
Looks like things are gonna get really tough around here!!
I like Jubilee's inclusion too. Her friendship with Psylocke was not too explored in the recent X-Women team. I still miss those days when they would just relax and talk about life and about themselves, I like those bonding issues.

When did Jubes and Psylocke bond, like that? I
know that Jubilee eventually learned to trust Psylocke, but don't recall them bonding especially tight? LOL.

As for requests, I'm still Team Cypher. Doug is now deadly in his own right with the evolution of his powers and I still want him and Bets to actually have an on-panel reunion as friends.

Eduardo said...

Oh I have always been fond of them together since that old story when the X-girls went shopping and met Jubilee being hunted and saved her. Afterwards that period when they were hanging out with Wolvie was also interesting and I recall Betsy standing for Jube's inclusion in a mission against the Fenris brothers in which Cyclops didn't choose her too.
I like their dynamic so much that I might have stretched it a bit Rahsaan ahahaha
Oh Doug and Betsy so deserve to have a revival of their old times too!!

Eduardo said...

Are we gonna have a TP or TK Psylocke this time???

nicce said...

According to the covers, that show her with psy-knive and butterfly signature, she seems to be TP... maybe she's both. I'd prefer her to be both TP and TK, with TK used to boost her fighting ability (like in her mini "Killing Matsu'o") and not allowing her to fly or smash mountains (even if I don't completely dislike her TK weaponry), and TP used in creative and smart ways or focused in a psy-knive (this is much more important than being an omega level telepath).

Zahra said...

According to Bunn, she will have both telepathy and telekinesis. He answered that question on tumblr.

Brian said...

Yes to all of this.

I like that Psylocke's hair looks beautifully purple here.
