Things are heating up in Uncanny X-Men thanks to Cyclops and Wolverine taking on the Mutant Liberation Front, fighting Hope, and now even Captain America is involved. In the latest issue out today, lives are literally being lost.

Listen to the latest episode of our weekly comics podcast!

Off with his head! It appears the once beloved Magneto clone Joseph is no longer with us.

This is only part of the story. I highly recommend you read the whole issue out today!
