Cyclops and Wolverine are the Last X-Men in Uncanny X-Men #12

Uncanny X-Men #12, from the newly announced Uncanny X-Men single creative team of Matthew Rosenberg and Salvador Larroca, will feature the best and the worst of the X-Men, it seems. Marvel has released the cover for the book, featuring Cyclops (the best X-Man) and Wolverine (the worst X-Man) on the cover, and declaring these two to be the "last" X-Men, perhaps lending credence to the theory that the rest of the X-Men will be off in an alternate Age of X-Man universe for the duration of that event.

Cyclops' long-rumored return was confirmed earlier this morning when Marvel sent out the cover to Uncanny X-Men #11 featuring the fan-favorite mutant leader, but the cover's imagery hinted that the rest of the X-Men might be gone… somewhere. With Bleeding Cool breaking the news (pip pip) that six X-books would launch in February, with titles reminiscent of the renamed X-Books from the original Age of Apocalypse event, all signs seem to be pointing to the Age of X-Man taking the rest of the X-Men off into their own alternate-universe adventure, leaving Cyclops and the recently-returned Wolverine to team up.

As if we all weren't already jealous enough of Matthew Rosenberg getting to be the sole writer of Uncanny X-Men, now we have to begrudgingly admit that, yeah, Wolverine is definitely the worst, but his team-ups with Cyclops tend to be pretty goddamn cool. Don't make us like Wolverine again, Rosenberg! We'll never forgive you!

It's a great time to be an X-Men fan, folks.

About Jude Terror

A prophecy once said that in the comic book industry's darkest days, a hero would come to lead the people through a plague of overpriced floppies, incentive variant covers, #1 issue reboots, and super-mega-crossover events.

And so, Jude Terror has moved on to a more important mission: turning Bleeding Cool into a pro wrestling dirt sheet!
