As announced during San Diego Comic-Con, Uncanny X-Men returns this fall but things aren’t looking so good for the X-Men as they currently stand. Revealed on Marvel.com & through an image tweeted out by X-Line editor Jordan D. White, the series returns with an ominous sounding weekly storyline titled “Disassembled” and a sizeable creative team.
That creative team is writers Ed Brisson, Kelly Thompson, Matthew Rosenberg and artists Mahmud Asrar, R.B. Silva, Yildiray Cinar, and Pere Perez with covers by Leinil Yu. The teaser image for the series was created by David Marquez and Rachelle Rosenberg.
UNCANNY X-MEN will launch with a 10-part weekly epic called “Disassembled.” Where the series goes from there depends on who is left standing! In this “epic tale of mystery and tragic disappearance,” every remaining mutant on the planet will come together in “an adventure so Earth-shattering, it could very well be the X-Men’s FINAL mission!” With stakes this high, it will take an extraordinary team to tell this story.
Disassembled of course famously described Brian Micahel Bendis first arc on Avengers back in 2004 when he had the entire team wrecked and then a New Avengers team rose out of the ashes later that year. There is no indication if that is fully what is happening here, but more details are likely on the way at a later date.
Seemingly storyline could do the same, breaking up the X-Men and launching a whole new team and sets of titles in 2019, after the current ones all wrap up their storylines alongside Uncanny.
Uncanny X-Men #1 arrives on November 14.
