Tomorrow's Avengers #39 Features The Prehistoric X-Men? (Spoilers)

Tomorrow's Avengers #39 by Jason Aaron and Dale Keown looks really good based on the preview artwork below. A prologue to the upcoming Enter The Phoenix, it features the origin of the Phoenix from Avengers One Million BC. We see a young baby girl with red hair abandoned, surviving vulture and then wolf interests, becoming someone who runs with the wolves…

The similarities to Jean Grey are clear. Maybe she can talk directly to animals in their heads? But Bleeding Cool also gets the word that Avengers #39 might also show us the first prehistoric version of the X-Men.

Now, these X-Men are not named as such in the comic, which is more about setting up the Avengers 1,000,000 BC origin. But it also features a gathering of mutated early men, including a telepathic leader, a chap with wings, a beast or two, a devil, a guy with claws and a cyclops…and of course a Phoenix wielding young red-haired woman. Will we see them again? It's always possible. They do seem to be a resilient lot. Here's a sneak peek at the issue in question…
