Since we learned that Uncanny X-Men, the greatest comic book title in the history of publishing, would return this November, we were naturally quite excited, even if didn't contain enough Chris Claremont (by which we mean it did not contain any Chris Claremont). Since then, Marvel and the book's 47-person creative team have kept very quiet about the details, with the only clue as to the plot in November's solicitations saying:
Starting with a mysterious and tragic disappearance, the X-Men are drawn into what might be…their final adventure?!
But in December, Marvel's lips have gotten looser, and the solicits for Uncanny X-Men #4-7 drop some pretty big bombshells. For example, who are the Four Horsemen of Salvation? And it looks like Nate Grey: X-Man will be returning, along with, if the solicit can be believed, the Age of Apocalypse!
The solicit also promises that the 10-part X-Men Disassembled storyline will leave the X-Men in tatters, like Rogue's costume following any battle in the 1990s.
Check out the solicit for December's issues below.
