There’s a traitor in the X-Men’s midst… for the billionth time… in April. While most of the X-Men are off in the Age of X-Man event, enjoying utopia, Cyclops and Wolverine are left behind to rebuild the X-Men and tie up loose ends in the mutant world. One of those loose ends appears to be mutant terrorist organization the Mutant Liberation Front, featuring such beloved characters as Forearm and Akira Yoshida.
But the MLF also apparently has a new leader, and it’s one of the X-Men! Oh noes! Who could it be? Someone could probably narrow it down by figuring out who was sent off to an alternate reality and who isn’t already on Scott and Wolvie’s new team, but we’ll leave that algebra to you readers for the comments section. Maybe it’s Cyclops himself. Wouldn’t that be a twist (and a callback to the first time Stryfe took his mask off in X-Force)?
For now, enjoy the solicit for Uncanny X-Men #15 and #16 and the covers below, one of which is very uncool because it features Cyclops getting hit in the face by… is that Havok’s powers? Banshee’s? And the other of which is awesome because it features Kwannon stabbing Wolverine with her psychic knife. If anyone deserves the focused totality of her psychic powers, it’s definitely the runt.
