• Madison Jeffries' Whereabouts Revealed *SPOILERS*

    Today sees the release of All-New X-Men #40 which features the introduction of a new mutant team for the Marvel Universe: The Utopians.
    The issue was solicited as:

    ALL-NEW X-MEN #40 (& 41)
    BRIAN MICHAEL BENDIS (w) MAHMUD ASRAR (a)
    Cover by ANDREA SORRENTIN
    Issue #41 - WTD VARIANT COVER BY TBA
    Who are the Utopians? And what secret do they hold that pertains to the future of mutantkind?
    The All-New X-Men may regret finding out!
    32 PGS./Rated T $3.99

    and upon solicitations we speculated that Jeffries could well still be on the island of Utopia.

    Today it's revealed to eagle-eyed readers that he is:


    Jeffries' last appearance was in middle of the Avengers Vs X-Men storyline, in the pages of Avengers Academy #31 when he was teleported away by Pixie to find the other X-Men:



    However, unlike the rest of the characters shown he didn't appear anywhere afterwards.

    Returning to the former island home of X-Club makes some form of sense, so it will be interesting to see if this is touched upon and where the storyline takes him next.

    Interestingly enough this is the first time we've seen Jeffries in an X-Uniform.

      It might be Elixir I can't tell if his skin in yellow....damn partial color blindness

      I was thinking Cypher, and had no clue who the other one was.

      I think this is the "Iceman out" issue so it was completely gone from the LCS shelves on day 1. Oh well. Re-orders are our friends.

      Yeah, I had a feeling that'd happen, hence going against my usual judgement and putting a spoilery article up as it hit the stands in the US.
