Clay Mann posted a Marvel NOW! image for a New X-Men book by himself and "The Great One" Brian Bendis on his Tumblr.

Clay Mann posted this image on his Tumblr blog earlier tonight, setting Twitter and internet den of debauchery 4chan on fire with talk of its legitimacy. Of course, it's not an official release from Marvel, but it is from Mann's own Tumblr. Could it be yet another X-Men ongoing series by "The Great One" Brian Bendis launching in September, or perhaps a renaming of All New-X-Men? If it's a new book, will All New X-Men and Uncanny X-Men continue? If it's a renaming, will the original five X-Men be sent back to their own place in the timestream, to be replaced by characters in the image such as X-23, Dust, Rockslide, Pixie, Hellion, Loa, Surge, Anole, and Mercury? If it is adapted to a feature film, will Joseph Gordon-Levitt play one or more of the characters? If it's just a meaningless image, will we lose all credibility for reporting it?
Just kidding on that last one. We never had any credibility!
It does have the Marvel NOW! logo on it though. Just sayin'.

UPDATED (From the Editor): As pointed out in the comments, Brian Bendis confirmed on Tumblr that the image was simply a homage or commission of some sort. As punishment for reporting on such an obviously unlikely rumor without any proof, we had Jude Terror shipped off to the "Latino-Review Is Not a Legitimate News Source" reeducation camp. Below, see security footage of Terror departing the Outhouse facilities:
