One Of These X-Men Is A Traitor!

What does the newest Marvel teaser tell us about the upcoming UNCANNY X-MEN series?

Earlier today Marvel unveiled their newest teaser; this time for UNCANNY X-MEN. The image, illustrated by artist Chris Bachalo, features Cyclops, Magik and several other characters that were not as easily recognizable. One of them in particular, however, piqued our interest. Could we see the return of Lady Mastermind in the UNCANNY X-MEN series? It will be interesting to see what happens. What do you think of the teaser? Which of these characters do you think will be a traitor to the team?

UNCANNY X-MEN #1

Writer: Brian Michael Bendis

Art & Cover: Chris Bachalo

They might try and turn Magneto evil again but I'd rather they didn't. They may be more recognisable if the artwork was of a better standard. Cyclops looks like he's slouching.

Technically all of them are traitors.

I have no idea because i've only been reading X-men since now, it finally made me jump on over from DC to something Marvel. Just wondering though, is The one in white a new looking magneto? And aren't all the ones on the left from "All new X-men" new mutants they cornered?

It's Magik people.

Emma Frost, scorned woman, and what not...

Tough call, not like the 3 I recognize haven't played that role already.

emma or magneto in my opinion, really wish the time stopper wasny on this team though, really like her wish she was on wolvies :(

Holy crap they are making why to many X-men books I thought the idea of Mavel now was to simply and trim some of the fat. Guess I was wrong

its not lady mastermind

I'll be extremely disappointed if it's not one of the "new" mutant recruits. I think that's most likely, but if it's Magneto, Emma or Magik, it'll suck. I like that core group of Uncanny X-Men.

And maaaaaaan do I wish it wasn't Bachalo drawing this comic. I'm really excited for a comic to follow Scott's group, but I love the way they've been drawn by the artists doing ANXM.

I thought it was Emma. Magik looks freaking scary though. I thought that Sword was in Magneto's hands at first glance. That would certainly be something to fear! xD

Magneto

Posted by TheCrowbar

I'm not worried about a traitor. With guns like Magneto is carrying I doubt anyone would mess with him.

Posted by CircularLogic

Considering the team is made up of Magneto, Marvel's greatest villain, Emma Frost, the former white queen, Magik, who is confirmed as being unquestionably evil, Danger, an insane supercomputer, and Cyclops, Marvel's biggest douche, I think it's pretty fair to say that it could be anyone. But my vote's on Emma Frost, judging by how Bendis is making it so that here and Scott are no longer together, and she's the one on the team that is the most upset by the actions of the Phoenix 5.

Bet 5 its Magik. Never have trusted her for some reason. The obvious pick would be Emma and of course Magneto could always have his own plan, but something tells me those 2 will be sticking around.

magik or magneto

Posted by velvetmeds

The traitor is whoever picked Bachalo to do the art

Posted by xAnimosity

Magneto's new outfit is worse than Capt's!

Posted by impossibilly

Magneto looks he raided Fantomex's closet.

Posted by Aeroman

I think it's magik

Posted by dondave

Emma Frost

Posted by dondave

Magneto's Helmet looks awesome

Posted by JohnnyGat

Magik and Emma seems to obvious and the new guys wouldn't have the same impact as if it were someone more established. So I'm guessing Magneto purely on the basis of the previous reasons and considering Scott is the lead mutant in this book.

Emma!

Its Magik or Magneto most likely magik

@impossibilly: hahah i was just about to say that

but seriously the word TRAITOR is super subjective. its all about perspective, is the traitor betraying this team? are they betraying mutant kind? its like that old saying; History is written by the victor. from one perspective you might see yourself as being the only person to see things the 'right' way, from the other perspective the ppl you just ditched might hate your guts for leaving them hanging

oh and that chick on the far left, dark/black hair ( i think the time bender) has the shortest skirt in comics!

I hope it's Magik and not Mags or Emma.

Posted by Super_SoldierXII

I like Bachalo's art. I like the cover. I like the costumes ... including Magneto's. It's a refreshing stylistic change.

Why make one of them a traitor? Really... I really love the whole team, and I would hate for one of them to become a traitor. Specially Emma or Mags. I think they already left that past behind, they're trying to amend their mistakes, and turning one of them into a traitor will pretty much throw all the character grown behind. I don't want Emma or Mags as villains again, I like them working together.

But if I have to choose, I'm guessing it's between Emma, Magik, or Magneto. Mags may be holding a grudge, after all Scott killed his best friend. Emma is mad at Scott too, but I personally don't believe she would betray him, even if they broke up, their relationship was really strong, they really loved each other, and I don't see Emma making this kind of move on them.

I think Emma Frost designed all the female members costumes on this team. How does Cyclops see out of that costume BTW? I'm not complaining in the slightest, but I'm curious.

As for the Traitor it's Probably going to be Emma, Magik or Magneto. But who would they be betraying? Disobeying Scott and going back to join Wolverine's School is probably considered betrayal right? I really hope it's Magneto then. Magik is too crazy for Logan to let back in and I doubt Kitty would allow Emma back. So Magneto it is.

It could also be one of the new kids and set up for a new villain or something, but I'd rather it be Magneto.

Cyclops would be interesting but I doubt they'd do it

Posted by MrMazz

So is Uncanny X-Men going to be the Cyclops book?

Posted by dboy4dashing

Its the douche bag looking Magneto.

Posted by Solarflare32

I think magneto is the traitor with the intention of a new acolyte team

Posted by Teerack

Stupid teaser because we don't know much about them.

Posted by TDK_1997

Is Cyclops Ben 10 now?

Posted by Necrotic_Lycanthrope

If that's Magneto in the back, hot damn. I'm digging the armor medieval look (although why white is my question. He ain't no "white knight" and never will be.)

Exactly! Magik has the sword. Kind of liking her new look.

Posted by sora_thekey

I would be pissed if the traitor is not Emma... She has every reason to want to kill Cyclops.

i think it would be magik al thought i dont see why she would break him out of prison. The only reason i could think of is to kill him but i dont see why she couldnt have just done that while he was in jail.

I could see it being Emma but where would she go next? She is accepted where she is at and they are now starting to doing things similar to what she is usually associated with (starting the school and helping the new mutants) If she was the traitor she wouldnt go to the Brotherhood bc she is more about mutant protection and growth then she is about attacking others and humans. I know she has in the past but that was a long time ago. She would have a hard time af the Jean Gray School for Higher Learning bc of the Phoenix saga that just ended, i dont think anyone would trust here which leaves her going out on her own.

Magneto has seemed way to close to Cyclops to the point that it would be uncharacteristic for him to be the traitor unless he joind the Brotherhood of Evil mutants nad even then it would be weird bc he knows that way doesnt work. He seems to be trying to guide Cyclops down a line between Magneto's and Xaviers sides.

The other two i dont know who they are. It sounds like one of them is the time stopper

Sweet Jeebus I hope you are correct. I am beyond ready for Emma to get kicked to the curb. And for the record - I love blondes, but Jean is the only woman I can accept in that role.

Probably Magik

Posted by Iron Fist Angel

Wow the most over-used plot device in a new series strikes again. Lame. If I had a nickel for every new book which used the "a traitor in their midst" gimmick....

Edited by Veitha

Eva is the traitor. In one of the first covers of All New X-Men she appeared on the side of the members of the Jean Grey Institute, while Emma, Illyana, Scott and Erik where on another side with Cristopher

Posted by StMichalofWilson

Please be Magneto! Or at least Emma...

Posted by ARMIV2

If I had to take a stab at a guess, I'd say the lady with the hoop earrings.

I have no idea who that is by the way.
