With the recent success of All-New X-Men for Marvel NOW!, readers are understandably excited for Uncanny X-Men #1 by Brian Michael Bendis and Chris Bachalo, but it seems there may a traitor in their midst. A teaser was recently released giving a better view of the book’s initial cast consisting of Cyclops, Emma Frost, Magik, Magneto and two yet to be named mutants, with the tagline, “One of these X-Men is a traitor!” The teaser also showcases a more detailed look at the new uniforms for Scott’s squad. “When people go through a large change in life, they go through an alter of their appearance,” said Bendis. “[Cyclops and his team are] in a unique place. There’s something going on with their powers, there’s something going on with them. You have Cyclops standing up as the public face of what he calls the Mutant Revolution. Emma Frost — I think the character has evolved dramatically over the past 10 or 15 years. … There’s so much going on with her thanks to Grant Morrison, Joss Whedon, Matt and Ed — there’s so much going on with her. It will still express who she is physically, because it’s an important part of her, but it’ll be who she sees herself as.”
