Marvel has released a fifth teaser image for November's "Point One" one-shot, this time revealing a bit of art from David Lapham and Roberto de la Torre's chapter in the oversized anthology. Presenting the most inscrutable illustration of the bunch, la Torre's image pictures a group of unfamiliar, unnamed characters, though the female carries sais, not unlike Elektra, and the man to her left bears some resemblance to Crossbones. The characters are X-linked as the updated press release tells fans the story spins straight out of "Uncanny X-Force's" Dark Angel Saga with more information coming during New York comic-Con's X-Men: Regenesis panel on October 16.

This follows the week's previous teasers, each highlighting other creative teams' contributions to the anthology designed to set the stage for the next year of Marvel Universe stories: a possible Scarlet Spider return by Chris Yost and Ryan Stegman, Matt Fraction and Terry Dodson's Defenders, Brian Michael Bendis and Bryan Hitch's tale starring multiple Ultrons and Jeph Loeb and Ed McGuinness' story featuring Nova.
