19th August 2010
Before the Beginning When Dean Clayton decided to start the UXN (having no clue what it would eventually become) he knew that he wanted to launch it on August 14th, 2000, the day that the first X–Men film hit the theaters in the U.K.
Still, since Dean had already registered the domain name of www.uncannyxmen.net, he decided that he'd at tease the coming of the site to anyone that entered our URL before it was ready. So, randomly for 1 month before the site was ready the images you see below were shown with a “coming soon” message. He had thought these images were lost at one point but, having found them hiding in a dark corner of the site, they are represented here for your amusement.
