So Adjectiveless X-Men is back...

...but why relaunch it without an A-list team? I can't see this title doing well.

Mags is a member of the X-men now, and he isn't the leader?!?!?!?!

Looks like I need to catch up.

First I'd like to know why he isn't trying to kill them? Unless this Dracula deal is really big and they need his help, by using him to impale the vamps with metal stakes

He lost his powers, spent some time with the High Evolutionary making artificial ones, and came back all "I come in peace". He still hasn't gained their trust yet, but he did just bring Kitty home

How'd he bring her back without his powers?

Must have been great powers to stop that Space Bullet. I'm sure that'll come back to bite him.

Well he's currently unconscious in the infirmary, but as the cover above clearly spoils, he'll be fine. Marvel is not so secretive about July

Yeah, like it's pretty much a given that Cable and Nightcrawler are goners now. Seeing as everyone's popping up on covers except them.

Sorry, I meant A-list creative team. Uncanny has Fraction/Portacio, Astonishing's going to be the "sorta out of continuity almost like a little movie" book. Adjectiveless has...Gischler and Medina?

It's like we traded Cable for X-Man

The vampire thing is only the opening story arc with a huge team of X-Men. Afer that it'll be whittled down to a unit of 4 or 5 characters, like New Mutants and X-Force. I don't know about anyone else, but that sounds like a good thing. Hopefully this could be the place for the rarely used characters: Gambit, Iceman, Northstar, Dazzler, etc.

I REALLY hope DP doesnt make an appearance

Damn it! When the heck is Marvel going to give Brian K Vaughan an X series?

Could they make Colossus look anymore feminine in that pose and with those tights? Also why do they keep altering the color scheme on this costume? It looks so much better without the blue on the legs

I don't think BKV wants to write X-Men, unfortunately, I think he's kind of "out" of Mainstream comics.
