A New Generation of Hope Coming to Uncanny X-Men

What could this mean for the mutants?


Second Coming is almost over. I have to admit, for all the build up, it doesn't seem like a lot really happened, except for the death of a certain fuzzy mutant. 
 
Today Marvel has announced that there will be "A New Generation of Hope." What the heck does that mean? The only information we have is that we will see a "stunning emergence of a new generation of heroes" this July.
 
Because "HOPE" is used, we have to wonder if this has anything to do with Hope Summers. Being the mutant messiah, is she going to start up or lead a new team? Since she was the first mutant birth since M-Day, are we going to see more births coming? 
 
We also have the upcoming Vampire wars the X-Men will involved in. How does this relate to that? That will be happening in the new X-Men title wihile this is taking place in Uncanny X-Men (written by Matt Fraction with pencils by Whilce Portacio and cover by Terry Dodson). In Uncanny X-Men #526, there will also be a backup story by Allan Heinberg and Olivier Coipel. Hmm...Heinberg is bringing back Scarlet Witch in Avengers: The Children's Crusade. Is there a connection?  
 == TEASER ==
Here's a look at the other teaser/promo. Who are these ladies?

EDIT: Here's another one:

Who's this guy?

I haven't really been keeping up with the X-Men since Utopia. But these teasers are awesome!

The first one looks like a female Apocalypse.

Is Gen X that good?

The title alone made me groan, then I saw, "written by Matt Fraction" and lost all Hope.

The one with the braids looks like Cecilla Reyes or it could be some friend hope wi'll meet
Posted by PrinceIMC

I dunno, the first one to me kinda made me think of Mystique, Nocturne and Blink. Though Blink is descended from Apocalypse so who knows what this will all mean.
 
I was a big Generation X fan so even the slightest possibility of some kind of return is exciting to me...even if its got nothing to do with Generation X.

It kinda looks like Mystique to me.

I'm intrigued... who are those two girls?

Posted by Benzo

hmm......why do I have a feeling that hope is going to re-power some mutants after second coming?? ;) 

Posted by Chane

yeah generation x was the first thing i thought when i saw that font

Edited by ComicMan24

The teasers are very good. The first one looks like a cross between Mystique and Apocalypse to me. Who knows, she might be Diamanda Nero of Earth-616.

Posted by ironshadow

By the look of the first picture Apocalypse has something to do with this.

Posted by CellphoneGirl

Maybe some new mutants?

Posted by Chibi-Iroh

The other girl looks like she is Apocalypses kid.

AWSOME A APACOLAPS WOMEN

The second one kind of reminds me of Angel Salvadore as Tempest...?

Posted by kerukun878

ALSO
 
Fraction or no, given the title, it tells me this may actually be a team Hope's starting consisting of newly remanifested - and manifested - mutants.

Posted by Kid_Zombie

Nice! I love x-men right now, its been so good and second coming IMO has been the best thing in comics right now, been having a lot of fun reading them. I'm pumped for this because the whole vampire thing has me on the fence. Really don' t like the sounds of vampires coming into the mix, but this looks sweet.

Posted by Aspenite

Bought.

Posted by Shadowdoggy

looks very interesting 
maybe her purpose is to make the next generation of mutants 
maybe the WHOLE thing was to start a new comic series of mutants that ISN'T just the X-Men 
hmmmm, interesting

This is really good Greg Land art. Yeah, I like his art, what ever! It seems kinda like re-powering.

Posted by eldestrisk

Don't get me wrong, I'm always in for new characters, especially mutants, but with all the characters that are really not used, is it neccesary for new ones to appear?

First thing that popped into my head too. Maybe a re-powerering, but with the Tempest abilities instead of bug wings and putting Octo-Mom to shame?
Posted by CaptainCyke

Ok so Gen X font and the Apocalypse looking woman make me hope/think maybe they will be finally resolving the Jono Starsmore rebirthed by Apoc Blood storyline.

That's exactly what I was thinking, too... I mean, nobody wants her to have her fly powers back. Her Tempest abilities -- as NATURAL MUTANT POWERS -- would own.

AAAAGGGHHHH!!!! Not Greg F*$king Land again!!!! NOOOOOOOOOOOOOO!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Gen X didn't make it passed 75 issues.  That's pretty bad by X-Men standards.  There's so little Generation X continuity left as the creators seem to want to brush it under the rug... but it still has a lot of love from the fans.  And since that's in the Gen X font & clearly involves Apoca-Lips, I'm guessing that Jono is going to return to the X-Men. 
 
Shame it's with Fraction & Land.   
 
Shame this is the big spin to launch the new X-Force.   
 
Shame this is the big story to run at the same time as Curse of the Mutants.
Posted by CrowRider

probably a new generation X series....the word Generation is in the font the Generation X logo used to be. and probably it stars hope

Posted by Nept

thats Marrow (top photo) and cecilia reyes (bottom photo)

Posted by Thunderscream

written by Fraction, drawn by Land... 
X-Men used to be my religion, but I've lost what little bit of faith I had left.

Posted by Ryonslaught

This was yawn worthy THEN i saw Craption was involved and then it became a certified Snooze :(

Posted by Meteorite

The top one looks like Blink with some of Apocalypse's DNA in her. Maybe the same thing that happened to Chamber happened to her?

That would be a point of contention for me as well... but if it means Fraction isn't ruining old faves as he did Emma, then I fully support him slaughtering his own creations.

@kerukun878: You're right maybe her technology powers will become her permanent powers!! Where is she anyways?
Posted by Korg

Possible new mutant births, probable mutant re-emergence of mutant manifestation at puberty, Generation X font, pencils by Whilce Portacio (not Land!)... I am actually a bit excited for this, despite Fraction's name being attached to it. Please let this be a good thing. I made a bunch of assumption based on this, I hope one or more of them are true.

Posted by SnowDemon

sweet new  mutants better have good powers...
Posted by fACEmelter88

DON'T CARE.... I HEART EVERYTHING X-MEN

Posted by The Sadhu

So is the first image of Hope? Is Hope Apocalypes kid?
Posted by doordoor123

This excites me... in my pants,

Posted by BKole

New Mutants, I believe. or some approximation of New Mutants. 
 
A new Generation or something.

Posted by Midnight Monk
New "New X-Men" team maybe but gotta wonder how many old New X-Men are gonna die before this guy come out. Seriously though, the writer have really got to stop killing these guys off and whatever happened to Cloak & Dagger?
Posted by kerukun878
@papad1992: I think she and Barry are raising their kids, now.

The idea is awesome. But everytime I see Greg Land doing that kind of piece I start wondering where he traced it from.
