When Age of X Universe #1 arrives in March 2011, the X-Men never formed. In a world without X-Men, where do the other heroes stand?  Marvel sent along a teaser image for the Age of X Universe #1, that should give you an idea (or at least spend some time guessing) who else we’ll see in the two-issue mini-series.

Penciled by KHOI PHAM
In the Age Of X, the mutants of the world never banded together to form the X-Men. But what of the Earth’s other heroes? In a world without X-Men…a world without hope, what side do the Earth’s Mightiest stand on? See the story of Marvel’s greatest heroes through new eyes as the future of mankind is decided in Age Of X Universe #1!

    I’m confused by the lady on the left. Everyone else seems to be in an iconic pose, but who’s iconic pose is going “RAHR! I”m a monster!”?

      It’s Niki Minaj, who has been known to say “RAHR! I’m a mutha@#$#*n’ monster!”, while in that exact pose.

      She’ll be introduced as a harajuku-themed heroine in a cross-promotion effort between Marvel and Cash Money Records.

    I think the mystery woman is either Sue Storm or Scarlet Witch.

      Probably Scarlet Witch. Although, still confusing. The left says “Hex!” but the right hand looks more like she’s about to do the Vulcan nerve pinch.

        Scarlet Witch is dead when the main storyline starts.

    I’m guessing:

    Ironman, Spider Woman, Invisible Woman, Hulk, Captain America.

      Can’t be Invisible Woman because I CAN SEE HER. (Should have made it just the outline.)

        That would be my guess as well. Now ask me why in the name of Norman Forbush Marvel needs yet ANOTHER “alternate universe”.

    Maybe Marvel wants to totally fool us and make it USAgent.
