Marvel Comics has released the cover to Uncanny X-Men #1, the first chapter in the 10-part weekly story arc titled "Disassembled."
The cover, illustrated by Leinil Frances Yu and Edgar Delgado, features many of the X-Men on artists David Marquez and Rachelle Rosenberg's Uncanny X-Men "Disassembled" teaser: Bishop, Nightcrawler, Psylocke (back in her Caucasian body), Storm, Jean Grey, X-23, Beast, Iceman, Jubilee and Cannonball.
"We are making UNCANNY as huge as we can," writer Matthew Rosenberg told Marvel.com. "We're approaching it [as if] this might very well be the last X-Men story ever, so let's make it matter. We're doing all hands on deck, fate of the world stuff. It's big and scary."
"I think the best X-Men stories need two things that often seem in opposition, but are entirely crucial," Rosenberg added. "First they need real danger. The X-Men go through more pain, hardships, and suffering than any other superheroes. That's their lot in life. And they always come out the other side, but that should be tested every time. And the second thing a great X-Men story needs is creators who love the X-Men. It's easy to hurt and kill characters. It's easy to blow things up with no thought. When it matters, when the audience cares, is when there is real pain and heartbreak behind it. When the storytellers were as upset doing it as you are reading it, that's when an X-Men story works. And I'd put Kelly, Ed, and my love of X-Men against almost anyone in the world."
Uncanny X-Men #1 by Matthew Rosenberg, Kelly Thompson, Ed Brisson, Mahmud Asrar, R.B. Silva, Yildiray Cinar and Pere Perez arrives on November 14.
