COMICS: New "Marvel NOW!" Teaser Declares One Of The UNCANNY X-MEN A Traitor

A new teaser image for Brian Michael Bendis (Avengers) and Chris Bachalo's (Amazing Spider-Man) Uncanny X-Men #1 reveals that one member of the team is a traitor. Who could it be? Cyclops? Magneto? Emma Frost?

Not including any of the new recruits, we basically have four options when it comes to who might be the traitor. Cyclops, Emma Frost, Magik or Magneto. Now, it's hard to imagine that it would be Scott Summers as he is the one leading this mutant revolution, but the latter three all have good reason to betray the former leader of the X-Men. Emma isn't happy about him stealing her share of the Phoenix Force during the events of Avengers Vs. X-Men, Magneto was the one who called in Charles Xavier to stop Scott during that event and Magik...well, Magik is nuts! For now, we're just going to have to wait and see! Be sure to sound off with your thoughts and theories below.

The true flagship book of the X-Men returns. In the wake of the Phoenix, the world has changed and is torn on exactly what Cyclops and his team of X-Men are – visionary revolutionaries or dangerous terrorists? Whatever the truth, Cyclops, Emma Frost, Magneto, and Magik are out in the world gathering up new mutants and redefining the name UNCANNY X-MEN.

I am LOVING Magneto's new white look. Very cool indeed. And Cyclops' costume, in this image, looks amazing. I chuckled when it reminded me of Judge Dredd though. Ha.
shamo - 1/17/2013, 9:37 AM
shit costumes. actually, i kinda like Magik's. the rest are shit though.
ToTheManInTheColdSweat - 1/17/2013, 9:40 AM
bendis is writing this? well [frick], it's gonna be a chick, emma or magik.

magneto looks like onslaught
shamo - 1/17/2013, 9:44 AM
btw, why'd Cyclops steal Ben 10's watch?
MutantEquality - 1/17/2013, 9:50 AM
It's Magik. Emma is too obvious.
MutantEquality - 1/17/2013, 9:51 AM
@blackandyellow yeah that skirt is covering nothing at all.
GhostKILLERgx7 - 1/17/2013, 9:57 AM
anyone thinking the white queen is back? having a taste of the phoenix force i'm sure she'll want more, could possibly take it from jean too?

sad tho i kinda liked emma and scott together.
Temple - 1/17/2013, 9:59 AM
Is either emma or magneto, but it's most likely emma, because she's not happy with scott right now. Emma betrayed there relationship so..oh and magneto looks god like, nice.
GhostKILLERgx7 - 1/17/2013, 10:03 AM
tho it could also be magik. we will just have to pick these bad boys up to find out .
Dedpool - 1/17/2013, 10:07 AM
Loving Magneto in White!! Best thing from Age of X!
ralfinader - 1/17/2013, 10:11 AM
Magik's costume is great. Actually liking them all. Way better than the update Rogue (for a mutant that had to cover up most of her life, and now in control of her powers, seems like a step back with the hoodie and still rocking gloves...makes no sense) and Psylocke got.

Let's kill Magik already. or make her a villain.
Mentok - 1/17/2013, 10:21 AM
Emma should be the traitor, it fits her.

Cyclops rules!
0bstreperous - 1/17/2013, 10:24 AM
all these costumes suck how is bachaleos art going to complement bendis' writing ??

i dont know if ill buy it honestly
0bstreperous - 1/17/2013, 10:25 AM
and a traitor to what ? a human sympatizer on wolverine's team?

not impressed or intrigued especially when 3 characters were made up as plot devices
kirynthemighty - 1/17/2013, 10:42 AM
emma isn't even in that cover.
jimoakley666 - 1/17/2013, 10:42 AM
Could I also point out, the new X-Men logo is amazing and was well needed. I love the kooky retro feel to it. Wonder if First Class was an influence with it's funky-ace Saul Bass type end credits.
hbk82287 - 1/17/2013, 10:43 AM
Cyclop's new look is not bad, very eternal/celestial kinda thing i feel. The Racer X mask can gtfo though, lol.
marvel72 - 1/17/2013, 10:59 AM
i think its gonna be magik,i hope its not emma or magneto.

@ kirynthemighty

i believe emma frost is the blond in black in the group of three.
ATrueHero1987 - 1/17/2013, 11:25 AM
I betting that it's Magneto.
OtakuPapi - 1/17/2013, 1:06 PM
Im loving Mags in the White and Black..Magik looks bad ass
BlindLemonShemp - 1/17/2013, 3:14 PM
its going to be mystique posing as one of them...

classic marvel shapeshifter cop out... regardless ill still pick it up... this book has been amazing so far

love me some classic x-men
wearethewalkingdead9 - 1/17/2013, 3:54 PM
Magik is a [foo foo] who knew that Colossus would take Juggs powers in place of her. Then when they got the Phoenix powers she [frick]ed him over again. then afterwards, continued to [frick] with him when all he did was love her and dedicate his life to protecting her. KILL THE BITCH!
ShadesAtKnightII - 1/17/2013, 4:53 PM
Since Emma and Scott are no more.... My guess is it's Emma.
souhunter - 1/17/2013, 5:26 PM
Its magik
Shadowmaster35 - 1/17/2013, 8:15 PM
Hope its magik. I like her, but she is cuckoo for cocoa puffs.
LordHuck - 1/17/2013, 11:03 PM


Magik did all that so Peter would stop wasting his time loving her.

She knows she is evil and crazy, and she also knows what a good man Peter is.

She did it to finally make Peter realize what she really was.
pepe - 1/17/2013, 11:49 PM
One of these X-men is a traktor... Cool mutant powers.
norseman79 - 1/18/2013, 12:02 AM
Bachalo is just awful...
wearethewalkingdead9 - 1/18/2013, 8:12 AM
@lordhuck, i get that she wanted him to stop wasting his time with her, but you cant just come out and say that? why did she have to [frick] him over every chance she got?
KeefNCookies - 1/18/2013, 10:09 AM
I'm so tired of all the relaunches. Can they not keep a series going anymore?? Im so tired of the incredible overuse of so many of Marvel's characters, and sick of change for the sake of change. For every step forward they make, another two or three get stepped back *facepalm*
Odin - 1/18/2013, 11:45 AM
I hope is it's Magneto, probably because he wants to get revenge on Cyclops for killing his old friend(Xavier) and also because he still wants to be one of the "good guys"(not so sure who the good guys really are in nowadays MU).
