Cyclops and Wolverine will be leading a new team in Uncanny X-Men, and we've got our first look at the interesting new lineup.
The solicitations for Uncanny X-Men #13 and #14 were released today, and the cover to #14 revealed the full lineup of the new squad. If you were unclear about who was in the image though, writer Matthew Rosenberg broke down who makes up the unit. The crew includes Cyclops, Wolverine, Magik, Havok, Multiple Man, Mirage, Banshee, Karma, Wolfsbane, and Hope, and you can see the group in the image below.
"This march, the world will meet the UNCANNY X-MEN. Cyclops. Wolverine. Mirage. Magik. Havok. Multiple Man. Karma. Banshee. Wolfsbane. Hope."

That's quite a group, and certainly a change of pace from the typical X-Men teams over the last few years. It's unknown where some of the more classic X-Men will be, but we're sure this team will rotate a bit over the course of the series. It is a powerful group to be sure, though with Magik, Havok, and Multiple Man in tow, perhaps it is more powerful in unconventional ways. This will also give Mirage, Karma, and Wolfsbane a bit more spotlight, and we're hoping that the team will use Hope in some creative ways, as he is definitely a great wild card to have on the roster, and has loads of potential.
From the cover to Uncanny X-Men #13 it seems they will have a lot of enemies to take on over the coming months. Cyclops can be seen looking at several files of various villains, and they include heavy hitters like Apocalypse, Magneto, Cassandra Nova, and Mr. Sinister. Whoever the new team takes on first, they are going to have their hands full.
