Marc Silvestri

SILVESTRI, MARC signed - Uncanny X-Men #280/#281 final Claremont storyline cover, X-Men & X-Factor vs Wolverine & Apocalypse

Media Type: Pen and Ink
Art Type: Cover
Artists: Dan Green Inker
Marc Silvestri Penciller

Cover was not used as Claremont was let go by Marvel for issue #279 and they redid all the X-titles along with the Uncanny series with issue #281. Chris had plan to turn Wolverine to villain by issue #300. The final, published #280 cover also has Cyclops, Marvel Girl, wounded Prof X, Wolvie, + Rogue Here's what X-Men researcher supreme, Jeph York, had to say about ID'ing this cover: Just from the visual cues, it was likely for a title circa Uncanny X-Men #280. (Professor X is back from his long stint in space from UXM #200-277, but in a wheelchair again after being crippled in #280. Banshee is in the gold training uniform he picked up in #275. Etc.) X-Factor did face Apocalypse in X-Factor #65-68, but Wolverine was not involved. However, Chris Claremont has said in various interviews over the years that his original long-range plans for UXM #300 included Wolverine being turned to evil. It's possible that this was an advance cover for an Uncanny X-Men issue circa #281, after X-Factor rejoined the X-Men. But when Chris left the book (#279 was his last issue), plans were changed and the cover was scrapped.
