In attendance were editors Nick Lowe, Janine Schaefer, and Daniel Ketchum; writers Rick Remender, Jason Aaron, Dennis Hopeless, Simon Spurrier, Peter David, and Marjorie Liu; with host Arune Singh.
The first topic was the title of the panel: Marvel NOW! All-New X-Men. A Cyclops fan was given the chance to read All-New X-Men #1 at the panel. David Marquez will be rotating artists with Stuart Immonen for the first six issues which will be coming out twice a month.
Wolverine and the X-Men writer Jason Aaron thought that fans would be mad a him because of a recent event in the comic, but he asked fans to keep reading.
Rick Remender spoke about Uncanny Avengers and Captain America's struggle to hav the Avengers and X-Men work together to do good works. With the reappearance of mutants, it an important time to do this.
Dennis Hopeless says that Cable is ready to retire, but has one final thing to do. It does not go well and snowballs into other things. We'll find out why Cable and the X-Force are fugitives on the run by the end of the first arc.
Nick Lowe describes the upcoming Uncanny X-Force relaunch as "David Lynch if he directed a James Bond movie". Sam Humphries' series will focus on Psylocke with MohawkStorm also on the team.
Series writer Simon Spurrier described X-Men Legacy (featuring Legion) as having a lot of character growth, family drama and explosions and weirdness.
Savage Wolverine #1 by Frank Cho arrives in January 2013. Editor Jeannine Schaefer describes the art as being influenced by pulp comics. She also described it as "Babes, Brawls, and Brachiosaurs".
Gerry Dugan, half of the Deadpool writing team, noted that you can't send out the Avengers to fight zombie presidents, that's a job for Deadpool.
X-Factor #250 will be Peter David's 100th consecutive issue of the title. Issue #250 also will start a new storyline called the "Hell on Earth War".
Daniel Ketchum spoke about James Asmus' Gambit book. There will be lots of romance and "shirtless Remmy LeBeau."
Marjorie Liu spoke about Astonishing X-Men and its new artist (as listed in the December solicitations), Gabriel Hernandez Walta.
Schaefer spoke a bit about the alternate reality -hopping X-Treme X-Men, including bits about Nightcrawler's home and an alternate X-Force.
The floor was then opened to questions from fans. There was a hint about Deadpool and Cable teaming up again; a re-emphasis that Hope's story is not over, and a tease that there are plans for Jubilee.
