As expected, Marvel has confirmed that a new Uncanny X-Men will be launched by Brian Michael Bendis and artist Chris Bachalo.
The new series is slated for February 2013 and sees Cyclops, Magneto, Magik and Emma Frost attempting to recruit all the new mutants that are appearing as a result of the end of AvX.
"You will discover in the very first issue of All-New X-Men exactly where Scott Summers’ head is at. Of all the X-Men that feel it is their job to further the legacy of Charles Xavier, no one feels it more strongly than Scott Summers," Bendis told Marvel.com. "Scott Summers himself is not only trying to save these kids but he is trying to train them and get them ready for what he feels is coming mutant revolution These new students represent his only hope for true redemption. And his only hope to make the world the way he really thinks it should be."
Bendis also offers that this new series will feature a new direction for the Master of Magneticism, Magneto.
"What you are going to see with Magneto is a very specific new chapter in his life. At the last Marvel [creative summit] we were talking about the fact that we often break our heroes but never do much to our villains. We would put the Fantastic Four through the ringer but Doctor Doom is always Doctor Doom. I gave that conversation a lot of thought. What happens in the pages of Uncanny X-Men will establish a very bold, new chapter for Magneto."
