Marvel Comics announced All-New X-Men by the creative team of Brian Bendis and Stuart Immonen in July 2012. Bendis stated that the idea of having the five original members of the X-Men (Angel, Beast, Cyclops,Iceman and Jean Grey) see what has become of the X-Men came to him during a company retreat for Avengers vs. X-Men, "Avengers Vs. X-Men led to it. It was an idea that had been floating around the X-Office for a while and I’m still unclear where exactly it percolated. I’m a big fan of these kinds of stories, Pleasantville or Peggy Sue Got Married, where a character faces the truth about themselves and what their life can mean versus what it does mean." Bendis said that the five original X-Men not only come into contact with present day Cyclops's team of X-Men but with Wolverine's team of X-Men as well, "We'll have three factions, and all these characters are interacting. It's almost like a Robert Altman movie. Plus, there will also be some new characters that you haven't met before."
Following the events of the Battle of the Atom story arc, the time-displaced X-Men, led by Kitty Pryde, moved to the modern day Cyclops's New Xavier School following a disagreement with the Jean Grey School X-Men members. They would be joined a few issues later by X-23, who had just survived the events of Avengers Arena. The team then took to space in a crossover event, "The Trial of Jean Grey", with Bendis's Guardians of the Galaxy series as part of All-New Marvel NOW!. Following the crossover, the young time-displaced Cyclops will be spun off to his own solo series, Cyclops, which will have him and his father, Corsair, journey through outer space together.
