Marvel released Mark Bagley's variant cover to Ultimate X-Men #1 on Friday. With the podcast and live Happy Hour Show, I never got around to even looking at it. Because Aiden Cross brought it to my attention, I did look...and I liked it.

No Caption Provided

Who are these X-Men? Iceman should be immediately recognizable. At the top? Yes, that's the Human Torch, Johnny Storm. Dressed in red, that's Kitty Pryde (she's been doing some really cool things with her powers). All have been in the pages of Ultimate Spider-Man. Both Johnny and Bobby have been living with Aunt May. Along with Kitty, who used to date Ultimate Peter Parker, all are completely distraught over Peter's death. In the pages of Ultimate Fallout, they decide to go off together to find their new way in life. Despite Johnny not being an actual mutant, I totally dig him being here.

As for the guy at the bottom with claws, that's not Wolverine. Wolverine is dead. At least, last time I checked. Wolverine's son as been a big part of Ultimate X (that miniseries set up a lot in what we can expect to see in Ultimate X-Men, hope you read it). Jimmy Hudson (or Howlett since he's Wolverine's kid) has claws like his dead but these look a little more metallic. Guess we'll have to wait and see what's going on.

Ultimate X-Men will be written by Nick Spencer with art by Paco Medina. These X-Men will be on the road to discover the true history of the X-gene. The regular cover will be drawn by Kaare Andrews and be polybagged for some reason. Issue #1 is on sale September 21, 2011. I wonder what role 'Karen Grant' will play in this title. It's not a good time to be a mutant in the Ultimate Universe.

In Jimmy's first appearance he somehow turned his bone claws metallic so I'm sure that's him.

I like the way The Ultimate Comics universe has been changing things up as of late.  I still probably won't READ any of these series, but still... 
 
I mean, isn't this what the Ultimate Marvel universe is for?  Making teams, scenarios, and storylines that either aren't possible or not likely in the main MU?

@danKRANE: You know, it was so long ago, I forgot. But I still dug the series.

@ImperiousRix: It is great that they are changing things. The fact that they killed Wolverine, Cyclops, Professor X, Magneto, etc shows that they can do a lot without having to rely on those characters. It was bold. Will they ever come back? Not as likely as it would be in a regular Marvel comic but who knows. And, Nick Spencer has been knocking it out of the park lately on his books.

Oh is this the new ultimate fantastic four? They each fit an elemental motif and there's four of them.

I wonder what happens to the likes of "Karen Grant", Derek, Liz, and Hulk. I've seen the covers to the new Ultimate X-Men and they don't appear in them.

wow. I hate that Marvel keeps drawing me back into Ultimate line. I will probably buy issue 1 (on my iphone if i can day one) and then decide from there if i should by the individuals or wait for the trades (like ive been doing with FF and Ultimate Spiderman).

 I don't really like the idea of the Human Torch being an X-man. I don't hate the character, I just don't think this is the book for him. If they want to do cross-overs/guest appearances, that's fine. But Johnny isn't a mutant. Morevoer, they devoted an entire issue of Ultimate Comics: X to Liz Allen discovering her mutant powers... which were almost identical to the Human Torch's anyway. Why isn't she on the team instead of Johnny? 
 Also, it's not really a reveal, is it? Haven't they already shown this team (or a variation of it including Rogue, and chasing Quicksilver) in promo images already?

I don't really read ultimates but this seems cool. Not to be that guy but there are two typos in the second paragraph below the image "as" should be has and "dead" should be dad. You can tell that isn't regular wolverine anyway, even in the costume he looks way to  young!

The red costume reminds me of The Spoiler's costume in the Batman universe.

I accualty kinda like the idea of Johnny on the X-Men, Ultimate Fantastic 4 wasnt to good and he was the only cool one on the team. Wolverines son's costume is pretty badass. And im glad Shadowcat still has the cool costume.

@frochez: in the ultimate universe mutants arent really mutants, they are an off shot of the super soldier program. They are humans whos DNA has been manipulated . Also the fantastic four got their powers from yet another variation of the super soldier serum.

@cdeoleo: Actually, the FF are probably the only major characters who's powers didn't get their abilities from an attempt to recreate the super soldier experiment. They got them through an unrelated attempt to pass through the N-zone. 
 
I'm looking forward to this more than any other Ultimate relaunch titles. Especially since Kitty and Bobby weren't interested in being superheroes anymore in Ultimate Fallout. Also, i want to see Derek Morgans role in this, and the Hulk's, they were my favorite parts of Ultimate X.

Kitty can now switch her powers so they work backwards, giving her complete control over her own density; in addition to becoming intangible, she can also become sort of super solid. Basically, if Kitty punches someone nowadays, it HURTS.

LOL. But is it really that much of a problem? Should people that aren't mutants not be on mutant-based teams? I honestly like Johnny on the new X Men.

At first I would say Liz Allen belongs here because she's the mutant Firestar in the Ultimate Universe, but after thinking about how much of an impact Johnny's has in Ultimate Spiderman as of late, I'm glad he's sticking around.  
 
You can be a X-man and not a mutant. It would be discrimination f you had to be a mutant to be on the team, and that's what they are trying to fight against. 
 
I'm really excited for this, hopefully the Ultimate line can get good again.
