Uncanny X-Men cover

The Uncanny X-Men does not reach back and tell the origin stories of the X-Men, but instead tells of Jean Grey’s transformation into the Phoenix. Her hospitalization shifts the balance of the team and sends the majority of them away on a forced vacation where they clash with the Juggernaut and Black Tom Cassidy in a castle in a faraway land. Magneto also returns in this collection. The X-Men must come together and discover better ways to work together as a team to defeat their new enemies.

Visual and textual style: bold colors, expressive, informative text, noir style, cinematic panel style, expository, dark, dramatic

Potential readers/appeal factors: science fiction, powers, origin stories, good vs. evil, childhood, partnership
