First Look: UNCANNY X-MEN #23 -- An Original Sin Tie-In

The last will and testament of Charles Xavier is revealed.

It's hard to believe that Professor X has been dead since September 2012. It's also hard to believe that they're just now getting to the reading of his will. But then again, with all the secrets Professor X had, it's not that much of a surprise. Throw in Original Sin and who knows what juicy secrets will be revealed.

This July, the X-Men crash headlong into Original Sin in Uncanny X-Men #23 – from New York Times Bestselling writer Brian Michael Bendis and rising star artist Kris Anka! Thanks to the events of Original Sin, Charles Xavier’s last will and testament has been discovered. The final wishes of a man who fought all his life for peaceful coexistence between man and mutant – until the very day it got him killed. The rift between the two X-Men squads grows with each passing day. Do the secrets contained in Xavier’s will have the power to finally reunite them? Or doom them forever? Don’t miss the story that will have everyone talking and sets the stage for huge X-Men stories on the horizon when The Last Will and Testament of Charles Xavier stands revealed in Uncanny X-Men #23!

I kind of hope not. Scott's team has enough blond if you ask me. Magneto coming back would be nice though.

By the way where is black Cyclops and other sirvivors of that damned X-Termination...?

SIgh I really hope they don't decide to drag Xavier through the mud yet again. They never should have done it the first time.

You mean they're just now getting to Xavier's will? Why didn't they get to it the last time he died?

You know, I hope this turns up something worth thinking about - I truly do. And perhaps it will. But in truth, I would really settle for some team members in Uncanny whom have some history/dynamism or at the least - a villain that captures some interest. Sinister was exceptionally well written during the debacle of AvX - truly enjoyed reading his interaction with the team.

I hope Dazzler is joining up

I hope this isn't going to turn into another 'Look how messed up Cyclops is and how good Wolverine is' moment again. I really could see them saying Xavier wanted Wolverine to lead the team and not Scott or something dumb like that.

I'm gonna laugh if he left his estate to Scott which would mean he owns the land that the Logan's school is built on.

Oo I love Kris Anka art,I may actually pick this up even though I don't like Psychoclops's team

I now hope this is what happens

@teerack I hope so! That's give them all another good shake up.

Dazzler is a great addition to the team! (Although I agree, it is a little blonde heavy) She's a real powerhouse and everyone forgets it. I was hoping that Colossus would join when he returned form Cable and X-Force...

It makes sense. Realistically Charles considered Scott his son and he probably didn't update his will in years, and Legion removed himself from existence so there is no contest between him and his real son.
