Arguably one of the hottest book at Marvel Comics right now is All-New X-Men.
Written by superstar writer Brian Michael Bendis (Ultimate Spider-Man), the series has become a linchpin of his take over of the X-Men universe, and shockingly, he’s made the concept – a terrible on-paper idea of bringing the original X-Men to the present from the past – incredibly readable, and even enjoyable. Simply put, it’s a great read every month.
Well, in the forthcoming issue #32, due out this September, Bendis is giving us quite the surprise.
The above cover was posted on his Tumblr just before the holiday weekend, with a brief note saying “this is real!”
For those unawares – the character in the center is Miles Morales. He’s currently Spider-Man in the “Ultimate” Marvel Universe, which serves as an alternate reality to the “proper” Marvel Universe, one with a different – and less bogged down – continuity.
Unless this is a swerve, this would mark the first time that Morales appears in the Marvel Universe proper.
By the way – got to love how they referenced a classic X-Men cover here…
