Marvel’s Jordan White Reveals 1st Panel and Editorial Changes for Uncanny X-Men Relaunch

Last week, long-suffering X-Men fans finally got some details on the upcoming Uncanny X-Men revival. In addition to learning that Uncanny X-Men would feature a 10-part weekly story from the creative team of Ed Brisson, Kelly Thompson, Matthew Rosenberg, Mahmud Asrar, R.B. Silva, Yildiray Cinar, and Pere Pérez, we also got a teaser image by David Marquez and Rachelle Rosenberg which was chock full of clues as to what to expect from the relaunch, some of which we speculated on here.

But the teaser image created a conundrum for those who wished to see it without a giant X chopping it into four pieces who lacked the rudimentary photoshop skills of a Marvel intern to transform it back to its original, uncut state. Thankfully, ukulele-wearing, fedora-playing X-Editor Jordan White took to Twitter on #XMenMonday to share the original image, so you can use it as your computer or smart device wallpaper, or simply examine it more closely for more clues.

Of course, it still fails to answer the most important questions: Where is Cyclops? Where is Wolverine? Where is Chris Claremont? For those answers, we’ll have to wait for now.

But as a consolation, White did share a single panel from Uncanny X-Men #1, the first one in fact, though he did admit the panel had a mistake which will be corrected before release:

One panel in and Marvel is already editorially interfering?!

Former Bleeding Cool contributor Joe Glass, whose Kickstarter for The Pride Paperback Edition is more than halfway funded, had a guess as to what’s missing:

Does he have it right? Post your thoughts in the comments.

About Jude Terror

A prophecy says that in the comic book industry's darkest days, a hero will come to lead the people through a plague of overpriced floppies, incentive variant covers, #1 issue reboots, and super-mega-crossover events.

Scourge of Rich Johnston, maker of puns, and seeker of the Snyder Cut, Jude Terror, sadly, is not the hero comics needs right now... but he's the one the industry deserves.
