I'm going to have nightmare of the JG Jones retro beast.

@cheesesticks: Yea, that retro Beast is a little awkward looking.

Is that Colossus in the Lee Bermejo piece? or is it Cable? It looks like Colossus in costume and in the entire body, but his face looks a bit more like Cable and has a similar scare on his eye. Awesome art work but would like it even better if it were Colossus. I also like the Frank Cho X-23 art, it looks pretty cool.

1. #25 is considered a landmark issue. I believe that is what is meant by "anniversary".

2. It is pretty high, but Avengers, Uncanny Avengers & X-Men, and Superior Spider-Man are up there too. Yes, Superior will be ending but that's story-based, not "let's relaunch this because of All-New Marvel NOW!".

Are these artists all doing interiors? Cause that could get pretty confusing...

I think that might be a younger version of the future version of Colossus that showed up in Battle of The Atom. He doesn't have the Fu Manchu mustache, but he is carrying a sword, just like the BoA version, and if you look closely it appears that his hair is white at the temples. That would explain why his face looks more weathered.
