Austen digs deep into Uncanny

Mister Marvel found this, and posted it at the Hangout. (the LM)

Writer Chuck Austen has been digging deep into the history of the X-Men for his upcoming tenure on Uncanny X-Men, beginning with August's issue #410. Austen is set to feature a host of familiar - and in some cases not so familiar - characters within the first year of planned stories.

The X-Men team under Austen will see four more members added to the line-up. Out of the four, only two have been revealed so far - former Alpha Flight member (and one-time X-Man) Northstar, as well as past X-Man Havok. Austen has also hinted that another of the new team members is a former Generation X team member, one that appeared on the cover to Generation X #50.

X-Fan recently caught up with Austen to find out more about who fans will see in Uncanny X-Men in his first year. Whilst reluctant to give out details, Austen did provide X-Fan with an extensive list of characters, but true to his recent style of dropping cryptic hints Austen included several "red herrings" to keep fans guessing.

Austen also revealed that there will be a wedding in issue #425, and that "everyone will be there." Austen also has plans to bring back a classic X-Men villain in a story that sees "a LOT of hostages" taken.

"So, with that and an anticipated accelerated schedule, if there's a mutant on the planet, they'll be in this book sometime in the next year," Austen told X-Fan. "Characters I wanted to use, but can't on any regular basis are all the ones in Chris {Claremont's} and Grant {Morrison's} books," Austen said. "Other than that they've given me pretty much free reign to use who I want, as you can see from the list."

Without further ado, here is the comprehensive list of characters that fans might see soon in Uncanny X-Men.

Oh, and, well, I guess you can all go guess with this, but I'm asking as to where it was found. The little news sites can gather some of the best information doncha know.

Kurt may need somebody to love, but I think he'll take things nice and slow when he gets out of the collar...

Except for Anjulie Kurt's never been the 'quick fling' type...but then he could also be feeling just a tad frustrated at the moment...and throw in the possible insanity...

It's a page worth wondering around, just look at this:
And the number one sign you are way too into comics is....

You walk around school saying "Bamf" in hopes you'll end up back in your bed at home.

LOL! That's a good one! Well, Austen left enough room to park a Mack truck in that list! Good God!

Hmmm...Cecilia's on that list. I remember a while back her and Kurt had some pretty good chemistry. They enjoyed antagonizing each other, and he helped her recover from her drug addiction back in Claremont's run.

Who was on the cover of Gen X 50? If it's Maggott my Hubby'll flip! For some reason he loves Maggott. He's writing a Maggott fan fic and I told him if he gives Kurt a cameo in it I'll post it on my site. Well, if he joins Uncanny we may have to do a collaboration.

:D

Yes he did Slarti! :eek:

I can see him and Wanda getting together. They seem like a cool pair and Nocturn has to have come from somewhere. :naughty:

This also brings up the question of who is gonna bite it as well. He has mentioned that one of the X-Men will die... With that list it may not be one of the currently active ones. ;) But with that list... Talk about a target rich enviornment! :o

Somewhere on X-Fan there is a list of those characters... I don't think Maggot was one of them.
