t has yet to publish.
UPDATE: Nope, despite my best intent and googling, I failed to uncover – or remember – this series. Which is being collected. Thanks to Twitter user ‘Weapon Echh’ for uncovering my shame…

Sigh, This is what ran before…
Uncanny Origins will ‘explore the origins of Marvel’s most incredible characters, retold in action-packed animated style!’
And here are details of the first five.
- Cyclops, Beast and the Angel are three of the founding members of the X-Men – but before they ever met Professor X, how did they deal with the frightening first manifestations of their mutant powers?
- Learn how Quicksilver and the Scarlet Witch went from frightened orphans to sworn enemies of the X-Men, and finally to heroic Avengers!
- Feel the fury of Firelord, once and future Herald of the world-eating Galactus!
- Discover true rage, courtesy of the Incredible Hulk – for the madder he gets, the stronger he gets!
- And witness how Eddie Brock met his symbiotic alien “other” – and became the vicious Venom! Thrill to the events that shaped Marvel’s most iconic heroes and villains, as you’ve never seen them before!
Uncanny Origins was also the title Marvel used for last year’s repackage of Dennis Hopeless and Jamie McKelvie‘s X-Men: Season One original graphic novel as well as his mate Kieron Gillen‘s Uncanny X-Men #1…
