Previously unsolicited, Marvel Comics has released a first look at Stuart Immonen’s cover of “All-New X-Men” #13, written by Brian Michael Bendis with interior art by Immonen via Diamond Comics’ retailer website. With Angel having left the team to join Cyclops’ band of renegade mutants in “Uncanny X-Men,” Immonen’s cover features the four remaining time-displaced X-Men surrounded by a group of armed soldiers.
Commenting on the “All-New X-Men” team’s role in the “Battle of the Atom” X-event beginning in September, “X-Men” writer Brian Wood said back in April, “It all ties into the ‘All-New X-Men’ and the visitors from the future. All the X-Men are forced to come down on one side or another of this rather important event. It’s a very profound choice, and that causes the trouble. In a way, it’s worse than what happened in ‘Schism,’ because it’s so much more emotional here.”
