* Marvel Comics has announced a February launch for Uncanny X-Men, a Marvel NOW! series by writer Brian Michael Bendis and artist Chris Bachalo.

Here's how Marvel describes the book:

"The true flagship book of the X-Men returns. 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."

"What Brian and Chris have planned for Cyclops' team in the post-Avengers Vs. X-Men landscape is nothing short of its adjective, 'uncanny'," said Axel Alonso, Marvel's editor-in-chief. "Mutantkind has been going through a reevolution over the past couple years. The pressing question now is, who will lead them into the future?"

"Uncanny X-Men will be the one-stop shop for these very important characters in the mutant [corner of the] Marvel Universe and the Marvel Universe proper," Bendis said. "I'm very lucky that I get to write All-New X-Men and Uncanny X-Men at the same time. I can examine this fascinating part of the Marvel Universe from vastly different angles. I can't think of a time where the mutant part of the Marvel Universe has been more exciting. Every character is so complex and there are so many characters interacting. Literally anything could happen."

* Michael Arndt, whose credits include Toy Story 3, is writing the screenplay for Star Wars: Epsiode VII.
