SPOILER WARNING: The following story contains a major spoiler for upcoming issues of "All-New X-Men"

Though the cover below was shown during Marvel's All-New X-Men panel at New York Comic Con, it was presented to attending fans with the X-23 locked in a kiss with another character, hidden in silhouette.

"We're going to have some big 'All-New X-Men' news for you at the end of the panel," X-Men editor Nick Lowe told the panel audience, "but one character we'll tell you who is joining the book is X-23."

"Nick doesn't mind spoiling 'Avengers Arena' with that cover," joked Dennis Hopeless.

However, while the panel played coy with the identity of the recipient of X-23's affections,'s interview with writer Brian Michael Bendis shared the uncensored version of Brandon Peterson's cover for "All-New X-Men" #20, revealing Cyclops sharing a kiss with Wolverine's young clone/daughter -- something that's sure to fuel Logan's already antagonistic tendencies towards his one-time teammate.
