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!
