First Look: Uncanny X-Men #2

The ball's in Mister Sinister's court as he controls the Dreaming Celestial in San Francisco.

This week we saw the first issue of the relaunched Uncanny X-Men. Mister Sinister has made his return and it doesn't look like he's playing around this time. With plans that seem more ambitious than before, it's going to be up to Cyclops and his new squad of X-Men to take care of the threat.

After a critically acclaimed first issue, Marvel is pleased to present your first look at Uncanny X-Men #2 as X-Men: Regenesis continues! The fan-favorite creative team of Kieron Gillen and Carlos Pacheco pull out all the stops as Cyclops and his new Extinction team go head to head against the deadly Mr. Sinister. And with Sinister controlling the all-powerful Dreaming Celestial in San Francisco, his destruction has no limits.

Fans and critics agree – Uncanny X-Men is a smash hit!

“This first issue sets up the new status quo well before diving into the plot, resulting in an entertaining, action-packed, smart comic.” – Chad Nevett, ComicBookResources.com

“Pacheco captures the scope of long shots well while using interesting environments and viewing angles to create an effective sense of depth.” – Poet Mase, IGN.com

“It's time to get on board the Uncanny X-Men train and enjoy the ride.” – Tony Guerrero, Comicvine.com

“With Uncanny X-Men #1, Gillen and Pacheco take a bold step forward in the evolution of the X-Men mythos” – Ron Richards, iFanboy.com

Can Cyclops pull his team together in time to take out Sinister? Will his mission statement fail right off the bat? Find out in Uncanny X-Men #2!

TBH, Uncanny X-Men #1 wasn't all that to me, I'll pick up this issue though to see if it can raise my interest..

Hopefully they'll have a good explanation.I'm tired of cosmics jobbing all the time.

so many sinisters so little time

To be honest it would be much more wierd if she got her arm back all of a sudden. I don't know whether I'm happy or sad that she doesn't really care about her arm having been "amputated" for a lack of a better term, but I digged the fact that Cyclops didn't really care about it. He didn't let it get to him and I think it lets us see how dedicated to his stance he is. I don't know whether I'd like for this to be permanent though... We've already got enough dismemberment in the X-Men universe.

This actually looks a little interesting.  I don't mind the look Mr. Sinister is sporting either.  Guess I'll have to pick up a copy.  Thanks.
 
Amputee Emma?  When did that happen?  Uncanny X-Men #1?  Makes me wonder if she'll get some sort high tech prosthetic limb.

In the first issue of Uncanny X-Men... she probably made a fortune off the diamond arm she lost :)

Posted by victoriancuckoo
@NyxEquitis A blast sliced it off while she was in diamond form. I assumed it would grow back or get reattached. Poor Emma.
Posted by ApatheticAvenger

Emma was shattered to pieces at one point while in her diamond form, putting her arm back on is nothing.

Posted by moywar700

She'll get her arm back soon, but now is not the time to do so.

They need to stop sinister from doing any more harm

Right, but it took PF to put her back together.

There's only one PF wielder as of now and it's Hope...who is not by any means Emma's biggest fan. And it's possible that she doesn't have the experience with the PF to do such painstaking work.

True, although I still doubt they'll leave Emma an amputee.

Oh yeah, Mr. Sinisters! Mr. Sinisters for everyone!

Is it wrong to root for Mr. Sinister and his evil plans? I like him better than I like this team, and he looks so fabulous.

Posted by pspin

I hope they leave Emma's arm off for a while, make something interesting happen to her.

Posted by shawn87

Art looks great. Love the cover

Posted by The Impersonator

Hmmmm. I bet Mr. Sinister is going to use the Dreaming Celestial to bring back the mutant gene or use it against mutants.

Posted by SexualLobster

Why does he look like Morlun?

Posted by Solarflare32

Love sinisters new look I wonder if they will update the maraduers or even wierder a group of all sinister marauders

Posted by RedheadedAtrocitus

Looks awesome!

Posted by Fantasgasmic

I have to ask, Gman, was that a press release or did you include a quote from yourself in this write-up just for fun?

Posted by cexce2323

@Enoch: No as you can see in the preview she's back in human form....

Posted by The Devil Tiger

Mmmh, Emma still got her two arms. That's jut bad drawing. You can notice the fnger behind her thighs.

Posted by Rhaknar

If you look at the second last panel, she's still missing it.

Posted by KDarkholme

He control's what now.?

Posted by Duchess

I'm glad Hope's getting attention.

Posted by GLforHIRE

@Rhaknar: he became juggernuat during fear itself

Edited by themaskedhero

They better have a good reason for what Sinister is doing with the Dreaming Celestial, considering that Archangel kinda deactivated it in Uncanny X-Force.

Dont like any character getting mutilated as part of a story. Emma has been shattered to pieces before so its no impossible that she cant be put back together again. I for one hope they writers have not elected Emma to become the new poor cripled mutant for this group since hellion went to the school. The stuff with Sinister looks interesting looking forward to more.

Yeah, I'm hoping that Emma gets her arm back.

Extinction team, setting the bar pretty high peeps. I wouldn't bet on Sinister.

Posted by Eyz

Gotta love Sinister's new classy costume :P

Posted by The Dude.

I'm confused? I thought the Dreaming Celestial, Tiamut, went off with the Fulcrum and left San Fran/Earth, or was that a dream? And what's with Collosernaut?? Haven't really kept up with the xmen, so this really seems out of whack for me, not knowing what the hell is going on?

Posted by Edgeworth_11

Dammit can't wait!! This looks so bad ass and issue 1 was seriously awesome!

That story is being ignored, more than likely.

During Fear Itself, Cain Marko became one of the Serpent's Worthy, Kuurth. The X-Men couldn't stop him, so Magik along with Colossus and Shadowcat travelled to the Crimson Cosmos. Cyttorak was displeased that Marko was wrecking havoc in another being's name, so he depowered him and granted Colossus the Juggernaut's power.
