Marvel has released a new Empyre teaser by David Nakayama showing Cyclops holding a Krakoan blossom alongside several X-Men - and some Kree and Skrull soldiers.

The teaser bears the caption "Enemies must become allies", potentially implying that the mutants of Krakoa will wind up as the Kree/Skrull alliance's allies on Earth.

We already know the X-Men will face off with a horde of mutant zombies in their own Empyre: X-Men limited series.  Could this add a new wrinkle to that story?

Given Cyclops lives on the Blue Area of the moon - and the Cotati, the lesser known third party of the Kree/Skrull saga have their own Green Area of the moon - there could be big ramifications for the X-Men choosing an unexpected side in the fight.

Empyre #1 is due out April 15.
