COMICS: ALL-NEW X-MEN Variant Cover Seemingly Reveals Which X-Men Survive AVX

Released at the FanExpo Canada, an All-New X-Men connecting variant cover seemingly reveals which of the current members of the "Extinction Team" survive the conflict in Avengers Vs. X-Men. [WARNING: MAJOR SPOILERS AHEAD]

Below is yet another of Stuart Immonen's connecting variants for All-New X-Men. As you can see, it features a very much alive Cyclops, Emma Frost, Magneto and Magik, as well as a mysterious figure in the background whose identity currently remains unknown. It was widely speculated that Scott Summers would meet his maker at the end of Avengers Vs. X-Men, and while it could be argued that this is simply a variant cover that doesn't really have a significant meaning, it's worth bearing in mind that another featured Wolverine's post-AVX team of mutants and this one also includes a new character who will clearly play a role in the series. Of course, this now leads us to wonder who exactly will die in the final issue of the Avengers Vs. X-Men and where exactly Cyclops and his team will end up...

Colossus dies and Namor

Love Stu's artwork. The dude is a leg-end.
tazmaniak - 8/27/2012, 2:58 AM
We already kinda knew Scott would make it out alive. He appears in the Marvel Now group shot that appeared in Entertainment Weekly, along with a new costume.
mpk1988 - 8/27/2012, 3:02 AM
2 cyclops?? or is that not a single cover???
spidey1610 - 8/27/2012, 3:04 AM
Professor X is gone.
Odin - 8/27/2012, 3:34 AM
Damn, cyclops lives D:
Grimfoe - 8/27/2012, 3:44 AM
I always knew Wolverine was right about Cyclops.....
AgentDelta - 8/27/2012, 3:55 AM
2 Beasts, 2 Icemen, 2 Cyclops. And they all seem totally cool about it. Is that Dazzler far right? I'd like a bigger copy if possible :/
simpleman - 8/27/2012, 4:05 AM
Yay, Cyclops will live. What about Colossus and Xavier?
MrLoki - 8/27/2012, 4:23 AM
What about Hope?
Martay - 8/27/2012, 4:27 AM
That guy in the bomber jacket and the girl on the far right of the group shot look massively out of place - maybe signifying a former member leaving the group to return to a normal life?
marvel72 - 8/27/2012, 4:47 AM
i hope they don't kill colossus,i've always liked that character from the very first time i had seen him in a comic.
OtakuPapi - 8/27/2012, 4:51 AM
who the frick is the nerdy dude in the background seriously
hobohaymaker13 - 8/27/2012, 5:06 AM
Nice art, but die Cyclops, you silly f*ck! Die already! No one likes him (I sure as sh*t don't.)
BackwardGalaxy - 8/27/2012, 5:25 AM
Cyclops vs. Cyclops
PsyGuy - 8/27/2012, 5:33 AM
Yay! I was scared Emma wouldnt make it.
Starflame - 8/27/2012, 5:34 AM
Will Colossus make the ultimate sacrifice again?
ATrueHero1987 - 8/27/2012, 5:59 AM
Yes! Cyclops lives! I hope that variant cover reflects who lives on Cyclops team but someone on here said that Bendis kinda confirmed that Cyclops lives. Emma makes it? Cool.

Question? Did someone actually say an X-Man will die? Maybe it's an Avenger??
storyteller - 8/27/2012, 6:18 AM
I don't see Angel dying simply because he already just sorta died.
Canon108 - 8/27/2012, 6:40 AM
Where's Gambit?
ATrueHero1987 - 8/27/2012, 6:41 AM
Either Uncanny Avengers or All New X-Men takes over for Uncanny X-Men. When Uncanny X-Men comes back, I would love for Jonathan Hickman & Olivier Coipel to be on it!
jascurio - 8/27/2012, 6:45 AM
To me I think the whole original xmen team coming to the present day is just stupid.
SCURVYDOG619 - 8/27/2012, 6:49 AM
So Benidis posted this cover on his Tumblr account,and cryptically plays with the idea that the cover seen above may NOT be what it seems...

Sure looks like the girl on the far right might be Rachel Grey,though.

Since this seems to be the "Yesterday's X-Men" hinted at in the timeline shown in the Avengers,that means the Ultron War is about to begin.....

Shadowmaster35 - 8/27/2012, 7:12 AM
I need Frost gone.
Asterisk - 8/27/2012, 7:14 AM
If Colossus, my FAVORITE X-MAN dies...

Bendis and crew will have hell to pay.
Dedpool - 8/27/2012, 8:01 AM
Cool Magneto is still with them!!!
OrganizedChaos - 8/27/2012, 8:02 AM
I don't like how there is going to be doubles of some characters in the same universe....concept is dumb
DanteSparda - 8/27/2012, 8:14 AM
Magneto is FOREVER
inky - 8/27/2012, 8:32 AM
yes kill off professor X well had to happen but namor no way namor is legend, the problem might ensue from the death of prof X is a return of Onslaught now that would be tragic for many of those left, mainly becouse i cant see franklyn richards even bothering this time.
its the end of the Xmen world as we know it :)
LordHuck - 8/27/2012, 8:41 AM
Asterisk

Those sort of foolish statements always make me sigh and laugh.

Nothing you ever do will effect either of those men even in the slightest.
starkillerkch - 8/27/2012, 9:00 AM
Cyclops is my Favorite marvel super hero so I really hope he stays alive and emma too
Oxbow - 8/27/2012, 9:03 AM
The man and wOman without uniforms will
Not be in the final covers..I think they're just there as placeholders for characters that marvel doesn't want to reveal yet
Mentok - 8/27/2012, 9:06 AM
@starkillerkch Agree with you.

Cyclops, in fact, is my all time favorite CB Hero. His evolution as a character is just amazing. Can't wait to see what direction they take Cyke after AvX.
Mentok - 8/27/2012, 9:08 AM
Emma should go though. I think she's overstayed her welcome.
REDSTORM - 8/27/2012, 9:29 AM
Yes! So glad Cyclops lives.
ATrueHero1987 - 8/27/2012, 9:31 AM
I think after this event is over with, I won't be buying no more event books or tie-ins....well they're all in TPB or HC form. The only exception is when the Age Of Ultron starts.
shadearts - 8/27/2012, 11:12 AM
Cyclops lives and if you have a problem with it go suck a raw egg Best X-men EVER
MasterApoc81 - 8/27/2012, 11:26 AM
cyc is not the best dumbass ....he is a pompous asshole ...he should die not prof x ........reallly i love to see magneto pro x together again and logan and storm run the teams but cyc is there so ....cant stand his mentality great leader stubborn in terms of people judgement
