Marvel's 'Uncanny X-Men' Gives Magneto A Team To Eliminate Threats

Marvel vs Capcom Infinite: All Infinity Stones explained

Despite Marvel's commitment to several new series after the recently completed Secret Wars event, only a handful of those actively deal with mutants and the X-Men in general. Uncanny X-Men from writer Cullen Bunn (Magneto, Moon Knight) and artist Greg Land (previous versions of Uncanny X-Men) is one such book, and it's looking to pick up where previous Uncanny titles have left off.

Similar to the recent Magneto series, Bunn and Land's new series will see the master of magnetism try to put a stop to threats against mutantkind before they even become ones. Unlike the Magneto run, this time he's got "friends" along for the ride to help out.

Here's how Marvel describes the upcoming series:

Eight months have passed since the end of Secret Wars, and the X-Men find themselves in a world that hates and fears them more than ever. Refusing to accept one more mutant death, Magneto has gathered together the deadliest team of mutants ever assembled for one goal - to proactively eliminate any and all threats to their species. They're not afraid to get blood on their hands. And if you see them coming, you should run the other way. But with a team full of villains, killers and all-around baddies - can they stop from killing each other long enough to take out their enemies?

Given the apparent lineup of Magneto, Fantomex, Psylocke, Mystique, Sabretooth, and Monet St. Croix and the darker, likely bloodier, tone, the new Uncanny X-Men sounds like it owes more than a small amount to Rick Remender's Uncanny X-Force run where the various mutants essentially functioned as a black ops team. This time Magneto's in charge rather than Wolverine, but the idea is similar, and it sounds like there might be a whole lot more death involved.

Uncanny X-Men #1 is scheduled to go on sale Jan. 6, 2016. You can check out a preview of some of the art and covers from the first issue below.
