UNCANNY REVIVALS

Matthew Rosenberg (Phoenix: Resurrection) and artist Salvador Larroca (Star Wars) will helm the recently relaunched Uncanny X-Men title after the conclusion of the book’s 10 part weekly launch event. Rosenberg, who is currently one of the 3 writers penning the weekly series will begin his solo run in February with the “Devastation” story line.

Uncanny X-Men #11 will mark Larocca’s return to the Marvel Universe from a Galaxy Far, Far away as he has spent the last 3 years focusing on the publisher’s Star Wars titles. Despite the absence, Larroca is a seasoned Uncanny X-Men veteran with several impressive runs throughout the 1990’s and 2000’s which featured writers Scott Lobdell, Chris Claremont and Ed Brubaker.

The cover art shows an adult Cyclops mourning the destruction of the Xavier Institute. While this image is not exactly a new concept, given that the X-Mansion is blown up roughly twice a year, the adult Cyclops is curious. Death and Resurrection aren’t new concepts for the X-Men, as Wolverine, Jean Grey and Xavier have all returned to life within the last several months.

However, Marvel has been teasing the return of the Adult Scott Summers since Phoenix: Resurrection, which saw the character make a brief return before yet again succumbing to the M-Pox. With the final issue of Extermination looming, could redemption be just around the corner for the X-Men’s beleaguered leader?
