    “MUTANTS VERSUS VAMPIRES,” PART 1
    When a suicide bomber strikes in downtown San Francisco, it gets the immediate attention of the X-Men. But this is not your garden variety terrorist – and he’s not acting alone. Vampires from around the globe are descending en masse on the City by the Bay, staking a brutal claim for the patch of land the X-Men call their home. What is their agenda? Who is their mysterious leader? The X-Men are about to find out, as they brace themselves for a war of the species that will wrack the Marvel Universe.

    So Adjectiveless X-Men is back...

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

    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 :up:

    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?

    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.
