So could this be that Uncanny X-Men reboot we’ve been hearing so much about? Or a new X-series to go along with the four current ongoing core X-books? Or is this the next big X-event, which could ultimately lead to a relaunch of the line? Will it involve Chris Claremont? If the whole thing is classified, how do J. Scott Campbell and Skottie Young know what to draw? Maybe it’s the return of a certain stab-happy mutant to the X-fold?
Hopefully we’ll learn more soon, and we’re sure the reveal will be X-clusive to a major media outlet if Marvel has any say in the matter, but post your best guesses in the comments below and we’ll all do our best together to spoil it.
