Marvel sent Major Spoilers a sneak peek of Uncanny X-Men #13 by Brian Michael Bendis, and Chris Bachalo, that continues the Battle of the Atom storyline.
Here we are. The days of the huge, multipart X-Men crossover events return with X-Men: Battle of the Atom #1. What will it be about? Will Doop be in it? Major Spoilers sat down and had a peek. Your review after the jump!
Marvel released a sneak peek of Uncanny X-Men #4, that you can check out, after the jump.
With Avengers vs. X-Men we saw the two teams argue and fight over whether Cyclops and his revolution were out of control. In the latest issue of Uncanny X-Men, the Avengers have stepped in to, um…argue and fight over whether Cyclops and his revolution are out of control. Is this just more of the same or something completely different? Your Major Spoilers review has the answer young mutant!
Or – “They Say That Breaking Up Is Hard To Do…”
The fallout from Avengers Vs. X-Men has been pretty colossal, so it’s easy to forget that one of the casualties was the long-term (for X-Men, anyway) relationship between Cyclops and the White Queen. Awkwardly, both halves of the couple are part of the Uncanny team now, and you have to know that the question will come up sooner rather than later… What happens now? Your Major Spoilers review awaits!
Or – “The New Bendis Era Begins!”
When Brian Bendis took the reins of the Avengers in two-thousand-whatever, he immediately got things off the ground with a bang, blowing up Avengers Mansion, killing off fan-favorites, and immediately shaking up the status quo by adding new characters to the Avengers mix. It was a thunderbolt from the blue for an admittedly shaky franchise, and brought the Avengers back into the public consciousness for the new century. Now, BMB is ram-rodding a new age for the X-Men franchise, including a new role for the original X-leader, Cyclops. Will they bring ol’ One-Eye back from the depths of AVX? Your Major Spoilers review awaits!
In a continual push of upcoming NOW! titles Marvel has sent over this little teaser for the upcoming Bendis and Bachalo Uncanny X-Men #1. Who is the traitor? Start placing your bets now.
In an effort to poke fun at DC Comics, Marvel is releasing their own variant cover for Uncanny X-Men #1 – the 53 State Birds Variant.
Marvel NOW! begins right now with the debut of Uncanny Avengers #1. You got your Avengers in my X-Men! No, you got your X-Men in my Avengers. And Major Spoilers has the review to let you know whether these two tastes work well together.
Or – “When You Boil It Down, Much Of The Marvel Universe Is About High School…”
There is a theory I’ve heard that ‘Buffy The Vampire Slayer’ was popular not because of its supernatural overtones, but that because the series itself was a metaphor for growing up. I’d have to say that there’s a grain of truth in that (though there are episodes where they try far too hard to hammer that point home, notably much of Season 6) but I don’t think that they’re alone in that department. The X-Men, significantly, have gotten a lot of mileage out of using the mutants plight in a world that hates and fears them as a microcosm for any disenfranchised group of people. Then, there are issues like this one, that are universal, dealing as it does with the end of a romance, something that the majority of people have or will eventually live through. (Turns out it’s a bit more flashy with super-powers, though.) Your Major Spoilers (Retro) Review awaits!
The Phoenix Force has taken residence in not one, but five X-Men, promising the mutants a return to their proper place atop the evolutionary ladder. Sinister understands this means problems for his perfect species, himself, and is preparing counter measures. For the Major Spoilers look, take the jump.
