    Default Cullen Bunn's Uncanny X-Men

    So Cullen Bunn and Greg Land are going to relaunch this in October

    I know many have talked about it but I couldnt find a thread for it.

    Magneto is the leader (Assumption because he is MAGNETO)

    Team members included are Sabretooth, Psylocke, Mystique, and Fantomex. Sidebar: Bunn did say there would be more members.

    This is the promotional cover that was released

    I didn't quite like it but it is what it is. Old costumes. Doesnt really give much information. I hope we get some good variants. It is UNCANNY XMEN because this one is NOT enticing at all. (to me) But I like the characters. I don't care for Sabretooth. This might be the only X-Men series I pick up.

    Discuss. Comments. Anything you've gathered from interviews or random articles. Put it here.

    The only thing that I'm still curious about is if these characters are going to be the 616 characters OR are they all going to be cherry picked from different universes.

    Also which characters would you like to see. I'd like Blink. They need a transporter. Or Archangel.

    What artist would you like to see. I'd love if Greg Land was only the first arc and than we got rotating artists but thats just wishful thinking. I don't despise his art but its very simple.

    I don't care about any of the characters particularly but I plan on reading it just because I've heard such good things about his writing of "Magneto."

    So far I plan on supporting all x-mean team books come October.

    I'll read it, but I'm cringing that THIS is the UNCANNY roster. Can't we call this Extraordinary and Storm's team Uncanny? Like Grey, I plan on giving all the x-team books a try, especially since there are so few.

    I still think Creed's first instinct should be to string up Mystique by her own entrails after the stunts she pulled against him in Wolverines. Bunn did acknowledge in one of the threads he's fully aware that there's absolutely no reason ANYONE on this team would willingly trust and work with Mystique, so there's certainly hope they've either found a VERY good reason, or found a VERY effective restraining bolt to keep her in line (kind of like what Elixir did to Vanisher in X-Force).

    Love the roster, like the writer, hate the artist…many mixed feelings about this book

    It's interesting that the Uncanny title gets characters that are known to be violent. Bunn has been doing a great job on Magneto and I like the characters, especially with Magneto and Psylocke being on the same team again. I'll definitely pick it up.
    Cullen Bunn said on twitter that there'll a big chance the casts get a new costume though Land's record of designing new costumes hasn't been good yet.

    The entire cast is 616. That's fact. Inter ices with Bunn have him talk about Sabre tooth being inverted and that he is still writing magneto. Also of what mystique been doing.

    Yeah, I have a problem with that as well.

    Well, this and freakin' MYSTIQUE again? Goddamn it, people, just leave her alone for a while. Most overused villain in the history of comics.

    I'm honestly not remotely interested in this volume of Uncanny considering nothing about the looks of this feels like X-Men. I would've loved an Uncanny that was led by Rachel containing X-Men who are strangers to 616 who were survivors of Secret Wars.

    Magneto and Psylocke written by Bunn are positives.
    Mystique and Sabretooth and Fantomex drawn by Land are HUGE negatives.

    I'll read at least the first arc out of loyalty to Uncanny.

    I wonder if Mystique will be eternally in the shape of women who look remarkably similar to porn stars, so Land would have an easy excuse to trace her.

    This is rather obviously X-Force, not X-Men. I hope the plot is about Magneto hunting and very slowly killing the Inhumans in order to get revenge for the whole "the Terrigen Mists kill mutants now" thing. I would love if, two years from now, "Uncanny Inhumans" gets cancelled with a note saying "Sorry, Magneto killed all Inhumans, there is no one left to tell stories about".

    Honestly Greg Land is what is keeping me away from this title. I love Magneto, Mystique, and Fantomex... but this book is gonna need to get some serious good reviews for me to put up with more Land X-Men.
    I'm a fighter. I fight for normal people. But I'll never be one. I'm not a hero. Some people can't handle that.

    Didnt something happen to Magneto in this last issue? And I do remember him saying something about inverted Sabretooth. Thank you for the reminder.
    Now hopefully the other 3 are 616.




    I don't view this as X-Men either but I still wanna pick it up because of Bunn and some of the characters featured.

    Magneto/Psylocke interaction

    Fantomex/Psylocke interaction

    Sabretooth/Psylcoke interaction

    Like she really should be the farthest away from this team but Im intrigued to see why she's on it or why this team considers themselves X-Men

    Plus you got Mystique/Sabretooth and didnt Fantomex and Mystique have something in her solo run? I could be wrong.

    I want to see how Mystique and Psylocke interact.

    Lots of questions to be answered. I hope people give it a shot.

    The roster doesn't sound like an X-men team. It looks more of like an evil mutant team having their own book, except that Psylocke is there.
