X-Men: Original Sin #1 will arrive in stores on Oct. 8 from Marvel Comics. The issue is written by Mike Carey and Daniel Way, with art by Mike Deodato and Scot Eaton and a cover by Deodato and Richard Isanove.

Here's how Marvel describes the issue:

"What is the secret reason Wolverine joined the X-Men? The X-Men event of the fall begins in this one-shot! For years, Logan has been a man without a past, whose memories existed only as conflicting fragments. And Charles Xavier has been a master of his own mind and others. Now the tables are turned, and as Wolverine struggles to rescue his son, Daken, from the evil and darkness that have consumed him, Professor X comes face-to-face with the most terrifying secret of all!"

X-Men: Original Sin #1 will be 48 pages and will cost $3.99

You'd think with X-Men Legacy going, the X-offices would give it a rest on the big morally ambiguous reveals about Xavier's past.

Old sins bite harder...but yeah, I wonder how many more secrets the writers are planning to let Xavier reveal until they're done with them.

The whole point in revealing all those secrets was to wash away the idea that Charles Xavier was this halo-bearing saint. And I can see why they would do that, really. Having Charles be almost as morally ambiguous as Erik (but unwilling to cross many of the lines Erik crosses habitually) makes their long-standing friendship more believable. I can see Charles doing a few underhanded things to get his whole X-Men militia project rolling.

It's time for Marvel to give it a rest. The point has been made. We get it. Charles used to be a jerk, but he regrets his past actions, and no longer lords his superiority over people. It's done. It's over. We don't need a miniseries that combines the dark secrets about Chuck's past with the dark secrets of Logan's past.

Wolverine's biggest secret is that he has no secret at all.

I'm loving Magneto: Testament sooo much. I'd read it a million times in history books but seeing what happened to the Jews in comic form is just as disturbing

I admit the Magneto mini confuses me because his name isn't Eric Lensherr. I am a bit sketchy on Magneto's back history so the name change confuses me.

I think that alias got used so many times, it got retconned into being his real name.

CC's new theme song is totally 'Don't stop believing'. Couldn't think of anything with 'don't let go' in it. Sorry.

Anyway... the world soooo needed that one-shot a year after WWH. Thank you Gods of all that is X.

X-men vrs. Hulk looked vaguely interesting until I saw Claremont was on it. Yeah, that one's not making it onto my pull list.

The Magneto mini has been great so far. I love that last cover.

Definitely won't read Claremont's work, especially I have no interests in see him write any male characters, I won't even subject my worst male enemy (if I had any) to that guy's mercy. He would only do them a slight favor when he decides that they're good for sex-change.
And why Angel's face is blue in the X-Men/Spiderman story? Does he forget to wipe off his slurry-cosmetic mask before going into battle?

Probably because his skin hasn't changed back to normal yet in the time that this story took place.

Who currently are all nowhere near the main storyline. Can't be a coincidence.
