What's all this then?  Jeph Loeb and Ed McGuinness are going to set the stage for Marvel's entire 2012?

So what's going on next year at Marvel, now that Fear Itself is finally running its course?  Judging by this new teaser cover for a Jeph Loeb/Ed McGuinness story entitled Point One coming out this November, it's going to involve the much-beloved cosmic Marvel characters.  That certainly looks like some version of Nova.

Here's our first look at the 64-page Point One, which is supposed to set the stage for the biggest stories of 2012 and serve as a launch pad for a new series.  It also boasts chapters from writers Brian Michael Bendis, Ed Brubaker, Matt Fraction, Fred Van Lente, Chris Yost and David Lapham, and art from Brian Hitch, Terry Dodson, Salvador Larroca, Javier Pulido, Ryan Stegman and Roberto De La Torre, so chances are it will also reprint some of Marvel's "Point One" books from 2011, which were designed as jump on points.

And while we're at it, the covers of Uncanny X-Men #1 and #2 were revealed today.  Take a look here.  Not only is Colossus bald now, and all that 'Cyclops is dead' bunk from Comic-Con was just Marvel messing with us, but Mr. Sinister looks like he's gotten a reboot, looking a bit more Age of Apocalypse.
