Marvel's weekly Uncanny X-Men event titled "Disassembled" will reintroduce a familiar concept with a twist in December -- instead of the X-Men facing off against Apocalypse's Four Horsemen, Issues #4-7 will debut the Four Horsemen of Salvation.
The December 2018 solicitations reveal these Horsemen of Salvation on artist Elizabeth Torque's cover of Uncanny X-Men #4, with a roster of four unnamed mutants.
Though the Four Horsemen of Salvation aren't named, we can make some educated guesses on their identities based on their appearances. Angel has a long history of being the Horsemen of Death for Apocalypse under the Archangel codename, so seeing another winged mutant associated with a group of Horsemen makes him a likely candidate, along with the mutant shown with Angel's former girlfriend, Psylocke, on Uncanny X-Men #5's cover. However, the X-Men Extermination event also reintroduced Mimic (Calvin Rankin), who has the powers of Charles Xavier's first class of X-Men, including Angel, so he remains a possibility as well.
The larger gentleman may be the Blob, and tentacles flowing on the cover with a white-skinned mutant with the omega symbol on his forehead would make this character Omega Red, who recently joined Sabretooth's revamped Weapon X-Force. Finally, the white-haired man with a staff leading the charge is harder to identify, but he clearly must be the leader of the Horsemen.
