Uncanny X-Men #20, A Case Against Vaccination? (Preview)

Uncanny X-Men #20 hits stores next week, as Matthew Rosenberg and Salvador Larroca's run on the book edges closer to oblivion ahead of Jonathan Hickman's line-wide relaunch. With nothing left to lose, is Matthew Rosenberg including an anti-vaccination message in the pages of the book? Well, read the preview below and decide for yourself!

Of course, we don't know what was actually in the vaccine. Sure, it's almost certainly the mutant cure invented by The Beast, stolen by Emma Frost, and handed over to O.N.E. to weaponize as a method of eliminating all mutants. But how do you know there's not an anti-mutant cure in any vaccine? Well, besides the fact that mutants don't actually exist. Look, we're just trying to see where Matthew Rosenberg is coming from here.

Uncanny X-Men #20 makes your anti-vaxxer nightmares come true when it hits stores on Wednesday.

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.

Sadly, that prophecy was wrong. Oh, Jude Terror was right. For ten years. About everything. But nobody listened. And so, Jude Terror has moved on to a more important mission: turning Bleeding Cool into a pro wrestling dirt sheet!
