Superstar creators Brian Michael Bendis & Chris Bachalo unearth a devastating secret of their former mentor that will send shockwaves through both camps of X-Men! What has Xavier been hiding? A mutant so powerful their very existence was a threat to mutant’s way of life.

Against such overwhelming power, the splintered squads of X-Men must unite if they have any hope of stopping it. And the story of how it came to be will cast a new light on their beloved teacher – and the depths he would go to protect mutant/human relations. Witness Xavier’s final “gift” to his children, but will it be their undoing? Find out when The Last Will & Testament of Charles Xavier comes to its staggering conclusion in UNCANNY X-MEN #25!

Couldnt they keep Anka for the whole arc? Bachalo is horrible. I can tell we won't even get what his darkest secret is in this issue. Bendis is just too slow.

Bachalo is amazing + Awesome + Uncanny mixed with incredible, just saying his page lay out is unique and vivid, his art is a bit abstract but still alive it reaches out and pulls you in. You have to sit back and look at hte whole page not just panel by panel to take in how incredible Bachalo is

@mcklayn: I must be the only one who hate childish cartoonish art.

Bachalo's art is too busy for me at times.

I love his style, but sometimes it's hard to figure out what's going on... too much detail.

I love all the artists for Uncanny, from start to finish. They have such a range but I'm never taken out of the story and the characters still feel the same. Bachalo and Anka are both amazing in their own ways.

This guy knows where it's at.

I hope this book never ends or re-launches. This and Magneto are the only two X-books I read.
