Today's Marvel solicits hold several big clues regarding the future of the X-Men, and one tease, in particular, seems to suggest Cyclops will be getting his classic 90s costume back.
The new solicitation reveals include covers to Uncanny X-Men #13 and 14, both drawn by Salvador Larroca. On both covers, Cyclops is shown, and in both, he is wearing his classic 90s outfit made popular by Jim Lee in the comics and even more so by the X-Men Animated Series that aired on FOX Kids.
The second cover also shows Wolverine next to Cyclops, who is also wearing his classic brown and tan costume, so perhaps this is a return to those classic looks for the entire roster, whoever that ends up being. It is interesting to see those looks make a return, but then again the series has returned to the Uncanny name, so with that in mind, it is rather fitting.
On the first cover, Cyclops is shown looking at several files, each one with the face of a key X-Men villain. Cassandra Nova, Mojo, Magneto, Apocalypse, Calisto, Dark Beast, Mr. Sinister, Omega Red, the Shadow King, and Mystique are all shown, and it appears Cyclops has his work cut out for him.
The second cover shows Cyclops flanked by Wolverine, Majik, Havok, Multiple Man, Banshee, Hope, and more, and you can check out both covers below.
