Deadpool lands on variant cover for Uncanny X-Men #1

December 12th, 2012 by Christopher Williams Comments

In his own solo series Deadpool has been taking it to historic U.S. presidents who have risen as zombies, so Marvel thought who better to represent their patriotic side then Deadpool. That’s right, the Merc with the Mouth will be landing in comic shops on a variant cover for Uncanny X-Men #1. In a patriotic twist, the cover will feature Deadpool hanging out with the state birds of all 52 states and Puerto Rico. The special cover will be drawn by none other then Marvel standout artist Stuart Immonen. “Ornithology is one of America’s greatest past times,” mentioned Senior Editor Nick Lowe. “With Inauguration day and Spring just around the corner – we could think of no better way than to celebrate our history with a beaked representative from every state including Puerto Rico and then some!”

This February, Cyclops is back in full force in Uncanny X-Men #1, kicking off the all-new ongoing series from the blockbuster creative team of writer Brian Michael Bendis and artist Chris Bachalo! In the wake of the Phoenix, the world has changed and is torn on exactly what Cyclops and his team of X-Men are – visionary revolutionaries or dangerous terrorists? Whatever the truth, Cyclops, Emma Frost, Magneto, and Magik are out in the world gathering up new mutants and redefining the name Uncanny X-Men. Based on this synopsis of the book, I will definitely be looking forward to giving it a read.
