On his Tumblr this morning, superstar Marvel writer "The Great One" Brian Bendis posted the cover to All New X-Men #32 by Sarah Pichelli, revealing that Ultimate Spider-Man Miles Morales will be joining the team.
The cover is an homage to the classic X-Men #139 cover by noted curmudgeon John Byrne, in which Kitty Pryde joins the team.
That cover and the phrase "Welcome to the X-Men, _____... hope you survive the experience!" has become a beloved cliche in both the X-Men mythos and geekdom in general (for instance, it's a phrase we like to use to welcome new posters to the Outhouse forums).
"The Great One" assured readers that the cover was real, and wished everyone a nice weekend. Isn't that nice? Bendis is one of The Outhouse's favorite people at Marvel for his redemption of Cyclops after his attempted character assassination during the pathetic Wolverine fan-fiction event comic, Avengers vs. X-Men. Like The Outhouse, "The Great One" understands that Wolverine is a terrible Mary Sue character who murders his own children and has no business being considered the moral center of the Marvel Universe, so who better to introduce a new member to the team? Bendis is the writer of Ultimate Spider-Man as well.
All-New X-Men #28 will be in stores on June 11. #32 will presumably be out in September.
