Marvel NOW! Fantastic Four/FF Get Linked Variants; Will X-Men?

In the last few hours, Marvel Comics has released a trio of covers for upcoming Marvel NOW! relaunch titles, including Mark Bagley variant covers for both Fantastic Four and FF and a new cover for the first issue of All-New X-Men #1, a new series by Brian Michael Bendis and Stuart Immonen.

The thing that stuck out at us about that All-New X-Men cover? It appears to have someone standing on the far right, out of frame. Look just to the right of Iceman's left shoulder, for instance, and you'll see what appears to be hair. Near his left hand, you can see something...else.

Our guess? It's a new iteration of The Phoenix, and that's the little sash that Jean Grey used to wear on her waist back when she had that identity. We have nothing to support that, save what you see at right, though.

Is there another X-Men title yet to be announced, that might show up in November? It's hard to say, although clearly X-Men Legacy could always have a variant that links up with this one. In any case, you can check out Marvel's take on the Fantastic Four family of variants below.
