Get ready for another ongoing X-Family book in November with the Second Coming spin-off of sorts, Generation Hope.

Quote:
In the latest X-Men crossover event, Second Coming, the teenaged Hope and Cable returned to the present day. It was a brutal and violent tale that found the X-Men under siege from anti-mutant forces that wanted to kill Hope and destroy mutant kind forever. At the end of the storyline, Cyclops's faith was rewarded as the mutant finding computer Cerebro lit up with five lights representing new mutants whose powers just activated. In the current Uncanny X-Men storyline The Five Lights the X-Men are racing to find this next generation of mutants. Then in November these new mutants will take center stage as writer Kieron Gillen and a currently unrevealed artist begin their new ongoing series Generation Hope, which was announced today at Marvel's X-Men panel at the San Diego Comic Con.

While it sounds interesting.. I dunno how it'll work out. Gillen's last work that I know of was SWORD and it was very well written but very short lived.

Very "Mystique-y / Nightcrawler-y" mutant on the left. What abilities do they give em? Let's see.
My guesses:

1. A teleporter (coz they killed :nightcrawler: and they really need another one and the girl on the left looks a bit Nightcrawler-y)
2. A long lost son/daughter of mutant parents with omega level powers (coz they killed off Cable, and because the girl on the left looks very "Mystique-y / Nightcrawler-y" and we all know Mystique's a slut)
3. Another mutant from the Weapon Plus program coz their mutant inventory never runs out (preferably another Wolverine rip-off and the guy on the right fits the profile)
4. A brilliant mutant scientist (to replace Beast of course, guy in the middle looks like Hank in his early days plus he looks skinny)
5. A shapeshifter (did I say that the girl on the left looks very Mystique-y?)
6. A mutant who can control fire (the angry guy to the left of the angrier bald guy and yes, we miss Pyro)
7. A mutant with weather manipulation like ability (to replace... heck she could even be Storm's daughter or Bishop's. Plus look at her eyes. Seems she can control fire and ice, which brings us back to number 2 and 6)

Or a combination of any of the above. Let's face it, these five just could be mere replacements of the mutants that were lost. I don't have very high expectations but I'm interested to see if I'm right with the abilities.

Well the first on the left appeared in Uncanny this month and she has the ability to fly! Thats all we know at this point Im sure there is more to it!! Its pretty exciting to have some new mutants and hopefully they will take some time to develop the characters. This is a unique oppurtunity since the readers will actually be involved with these guys from the start!! Or known Marvel it could all end up being a crock of shite!!

The fire bird is probably in relation to Hope as she's been shown to have that effect a couple of times now, and since this is a lead in to "Generation Hope"

Wow, didn't know about this at all, thanks for the heads up Spaced.

Gotta say after reading Uncanny 526...
Spoiler: show
It's interesting to see how Hope is the trigger to the mutant girl's powers coming out. Is that just a one off or will it be the same with each of them. And with that question, is it possible that she is giving them a specific power set without even knowing? For example, if the new mutant hadn't gotten a flying power I guess they would have gone splat, unless one of Hope's powers kicked in at the last moment!
...time will tell good issue, and looking forward to what the next light has to offer.

Good second story too, really helps explain a bit about
Spoiler: show
how Magneto came to join in at the end of the first part to YA:The Children's Crusade
