First Look: ALL X-MEN #20 - The Return of X-23

Guess she manages to do alright in AVENGERS ARENA, right?

Get ready to cue the drama.

X-23 is making her way back to the X-Men. She's been a little...busy lately in the pages of AVENGERS ARENA. There's been quite a bit going on since she's been gone and lots of changes. But check out the cover to ALL-NEW X-MEN #20. This is bound to cause some tension among the original X-Men. And what is (adult) Cyclops and Wolverine going to think when they find out?

Marvel is pleased to present your first look at the action-packed All-New X-Men #20, from the blockbuster creative team of Brian Michael Bendis, Brandon Peterson & Mahmud Asrar! There’s a new student at the New Xavier School – and she’s not too happy her new “campus” is housed inside a former Weapon X facility! X-23 wants answers – and she’s not going to ask nicely. But before she gets then, she and the All-New X-Men must face down a heavily armed squad of mutant-hunting Purifiers! And Laura may just find comfort in the arms of one of her new teammates – young Cyclops of the All-New X-Men! It all starts this December in All-New X-Men #20!

So Cyclops and X-23 are hooking up?

Edited by Lykida

I bet the kiss is only on the cover.

Posted by cobra88king8

And I just realized that X-23 is going to be joining Cyclops' camp, not Wolverine's.

Edited by Kid_Zombie

I LOVE this idea!

Can't wait to see what wolverine and Scott's reaction if they do become a couple. Plus I was a big fan when X23 was on xforce and a huge supporter of Scott. She always seemed to respect him even more then Logan. So this makes sense to me.

Posted by Cafeterialoca

I'm actually annoyed that Bendis ALREADY is shipping her. I mean, shouldn't there be SOME transition from something traumatic to making out with Scott?


Bah, Bendis' X-Men run is really pointless and stupid anyways. There isn't any real goal to any of it.

Lol young scot is going to get a telling off from Old Scot.

Posted by Jonny_Anonymous

That is very creepy

Posted by danhimself

I really don't understand why she's going to Scott's camp after the way he and Emma treated her

Posted by darkbeam

So it's pretty much Cyclops and Wolverine together,this should be interesting.

Posted by BumBurger

I'm super excited idk why lol I've missed x-23 terribly i'm glad to see x-men who have been out of action coming back (nightcrawler included) now all i need is colussus to pick a side and ill be happy lol

@danhimself: It is possible they are just the first that reach her after she vacates the arena.

@danhimself: It is strange that she would agree to join them. After all they are in a Weapon X facility. You would think that s off putting. That being said it is nice to have her back with the X-men.

Posted by cobra88king8

@danhimself: I mean when she was on x-Force she clearly agreed with Scott's agenda so maybe she agrees with it again

Edited by superior_prime_maybe

yes... lure me with kiss on the cover.
I'd make a joke if it wasnt working

Because they found her first and where was Wolverine during this Arena madness? Nowere.

Finaly X-23 is back into a comic I will read again.

Posted by Dylan6998

that's the young Scott from the past, not the Scott we all know and love, so all of that history between her and the current Scott is pointless, he's essentially a blank slate, and she'll probably be featured more in Wolverine & the X-men stories than Scott's Uncanny team, that is, until Wolverine & the xmen comes to an end.

Posted by Caladorcp

This is a little awkward when you think about it... X-23 is a clone of wolverine...a female clone, but still...a little weird...

F*ck you Bendis

F*ck you

Ugh. Why won't these anachronistic pieces of unimaginative garbage just go the way of Thunderbird.

Cyclops and X-23? I don't see it. I miss Jean!

I said the same thing. Hopefully there will be a good explanation.

Posted by ArturoCalaKayVee

X-23 joining Scotts team is very interesting. But damn, I am love Team Scott more and more every week!

Posted by StMichalofWilson

Wolverine's reaction to this would be hilarious!

Posted by Lightburst

Hopefully the kiss is a lie and X-23 with team cyke yes!

Edited by fodigg

hahahahahahahhahahhahahhaha yes.

Oh. Oh yes. Yes, this pleases me.

Posted by RaggedScarecrow

Is that a Purifier church on the last page I see? I can't wait to see these kids react to their mutophobia, especially Jean. Still waiting for Iceboy to do something besides crack wise.

Posted by tximinoman

You know... being X-23 a clone of Wolverine and all this is sort of Bendis telling us that Logan and Cyclops have some weird gay unsolved issues.

Posted by mattwing87

I love her new costume!

Posted by mattwing87

@tximinoman: Haha I can see that but in the Ultimate Universe, Jessica Drew is a clone of Peter Parker but she is far different than Peter Parker is. I don't know if she had any relationships though.

So skinny pre-pubescent Cyclops gets to have sex with Wolverine's sex-changed clone.

I am okay with LGBTQ having comics.

But the subliminal it's-science-so-its-okay crap come on... that's not fair & causes a sense of violation and resentment.

In other words its a LGBT mind-f***.

Posted by Mrfuzzynutz

Bendis....always Bendis lol I am clearly in the minority in thinking his ideas are entertaining, as I suffered through his Avengers run, and he is just hacking his way through the X-Universe in my view as well.

I just don't find his stories enjoyable or his style to destroy everything to make things new approach .

Uh oh

But, what's LGBTQ about this pairing? I mean, a clone is just a genetic twin, so she's just Logan's sister genetically. So basically Scott is hooking up with Wolverine's little sister, who is also his adoptive daughter. I don't see why that would cause any pro— oh.

no

X-23!

Posted by sparty-dbq

Look at the confused look on Kitty's face. As if she's surprised Laura would react this way after bringing her back to the place where she was physically and mentally abused and tortured as a child.

God, she's so f***ing stupid now.

Posted by Gunners

People need to get off the LGBT stuff it's highly offensive to a lot of people, and really there's nothing gay about this. X-23 is a clone of Wolverine yes, but the Y chromosome was too severely damaged so they proceeded with 2 X chromosomes making her female. She was NOT sex changed. X-23 is her own person and Mrfuzzynutz has it right, Wolverine treats her like shes his adoptive daughter.

If you don' like this paring then you don't like this paring and that's your choice. But don't be offensive and say how this makes Cyclops and Wolverine gay.

Ha! Dudes in serious trouble if he's 16 and still considered to be pre-pubescent! Would explain his humorlessness though.

@sparty_dbq: X-23 wasn't brought up in the Weapon X Facility, at all. It was shut down long before she came into existence under The Facility.

Which was totally different.

@thenexusrebound: Maybe she's doing the same thing as the other survivors in Avengers Underground

@outside_85: Different enough for her not to have any feelings or care about the Weapon X Facility xD

Posted by Teerack

Was horribly easy to predict.

Why... for the love of God, why?
