One of These X-Men is a Traitor... But Who the Hell Are These X-Men?

Marvel released a teaser for Uncanny X-Men which alleges that one of the characters in the image is a traitor.



Source: Press Release

Check out this teaser, sent out today by Marvel for The Great One Brian Bendis's Uncanny X-Men #1. The teaser tells us that one of these X-Men is a traitor. The problem is, other than Cyclops and Magneto, we have no idea who these X-Men are. Is blonde slut the traitor? Asian slut? Other blonde slut? Could it be androgynous goggles-wearing afro boy/girl? We just don't know!

There was a time that artists in comics made an effort to keep the facial characteristics and body types of characters distinct and consistent, but now they pretty much draw them however they feel like, so with all the new costumes in Marvel NOW!, it's really impossible to tell who's who without a reference guide.

And really, is anyone ever going to say anything about these costumes? Cyclops tits aren't hanging out of his costume, and Magneto's junk isn't swinging around out in the open under a one inch miniskirt. With all the accusations of sexism going around the blogosphere nowadays, nobody finds fault with the way every woman on this team is dressed like they work in a sex dungeon?

In any case, one of these X-Men is a traitor. Who do you think it is?

ONE OF THESE X-MEN IS A TRAITOR!

Bendis should make Cyclops the traitor, just to see the internet explode. :roll:

The blonde with the sword in the foreground is Illyana Rasputin while the blonde in the background is more than likely Emma Frost. I have to say, the repeated use of the word "slut" in this article kinda makes me curious about draco's involvement in it's writing...

Now, as far as who the traitor is, I would say that we need more information this time around before speculating. If somebody is betraying them to the authorities or the X-Men from Westchester, then I would suspect either Cyclops or one of the new mutants. If somebody is betraying them to the real villains, then I would suspect Magik.

I dig Magneto's all-white everything look. Reminds me of his Age of X costume.

I was basing my assessment purely on the way they are dressed. Why does Emma look like she's 17? Shouldn't she be older than Magick? Who are the other two?

The other two are new mutants they find, and the explanation for everything else can be put into one word and one word only:

Magik has had a hard life what with not having a soul and being trapped in hell from time to time while Emma has had a little work done here and there. :smt102

Who are the other two?


:smt017 :smt102 I honestly don't really remember much about the new mutants who have already debuted in All New X-Men but I would suspect that the other two are probably going to be from that title.

Yes the two that aren't blond are the first two mutants Bendis introduced (they were also on the covers of the first issues of All New X-Men...

As far as who the traitor is, i'd love it to be Magneto, since he's the only one who wasn't a phoenix five member... or even Emma...

I really hope you don't know any 17 year olds that look (and dress) like Emma. That would make me yoni levels of uncomfortable.
