The time-displaced X-Men face off against sentinels on the streets of New York City in this first look at All New X-Men #9!
Source: Press Release
Check out this first look at All New X-Men #9. There are no words, as is the custom with these first looks, so we can only look at the pictures and imagine what is going on. My theory is that the Sentinels are part of fascist New York mayor Bloomberg's latest plot to eliminate sugary beverages in the city, and that the X-Men are fighting them off to defend the constitutional right of mutants and humans everywhere to drink 86 ounce Mountain Dews and die of obesity, an issue close to the hearts of comic book fans.
Whatever's going on, it looks great, and this is probably the best mainstream comic on the stands today.
Here's the press release:
