THE STORY: The mutant named Scott Summers heads to the Great White North, but what villains wait for him in the snowy lands of Canada? And who is their mysterious benefactor who will stop at nothing to ensure Cyclops' demise? The leader of the X-Men has gone solo, but can he survive on his own? Find out in the first issue of this all-new four-part adventure! THE CREATORS: Writer Brian K. Vaughan (Batman, Swamp Thing) lends his talents to one of Marvel's mightiest mutants. And with the art of Mark Texeira (SABRETOOTH), this one's a sureshot! THE WRITER SPEAKS: "My girlfriend has never read an X-Men comic, but she did see and enjoy the movie," said Vaughan. "I want this story to appeal to her, and the millions of other new fans who liked the film or own the DVD, without alienating the die-hard readers who will undoubtedly love Grant Morrison's and Joe Casey's take on Scott. It's a globetrotting adventure that asks, 'When you take away Cyclops' friends, family, and most importantly, his team... what's left?' Hopefully, the answer will surprise readers." THE FORMAT: Each issue of this four-part, monthly limited series will be 32 pages, with ads.
