That cover could represent just about anything.

For all we know, she was walking away from someone who made a crude remark about her ass and she whipped around like that, with a threatening glare, saying something that makes the guy shrivel up

To me, neither her body language or her eyes give me the impression that she's moody or angry. She's just trying very hard to look sexy. Which is quite an accomplishment considering that there's a bright light shining in her eye.

I thinks this is distilling into Mitchell. JJ has gone down the TOS movie route in picking a canon character for his second movie.
We were told eons ago to expect canonical characters.

This comic mini-series is a prelude to the movie, and supposedly ties in to to "Star Trek Ongoing", which has already done the Mitchell story. If Uhura goes silver-eyed in the prelude comic, she will be back to normal by the new movie.

The big question is, is it shining in her eyes or out of her eyes?

I say Cumberbatch is Starfleet's attempt at a 23rd century Augment (hence the Khan rumors and him being in a Starfleet uniform in the leaked footage). It will go horribly wrong.
Sounds like a complicated setup. Remember, the audience will mainly be comprised of people for whom "augment" and "eugenics" are meaningless, eye-glazing technobable, and who have plunked down their twelve bucks to see exciting zap-bang action, not listen to characters yak yak yak for the purpose of setting up a plotline.

Gary Mitchell is wonderfully action-movie-ready: Starfleet officer gains power of a god, goes crazy, zany hijinks ensue! That can be explained quickly enough that nobody will get bored and go to the lobby for popcorn.

After all, the important part is "it will go horribly wrong." Why take more time than necessary getting to that point? The way you described Khan is just an unnecessarily complicated version of Mitchell anyway.

Re: POSSIBLE SPOILER ALERT - CUMBERBATCH ROLE - AVOID

Action movie fans understood that Captain America was a souped-up human easily enough. "They did it in the past, they turned out evil and it led to a devastating war, now crooks in Starfleet are trying it again" is simple enough, I think.

My guess is that it's Gary Mitchell shining in her eyes.

Re: POSSIBLE SPOILER ALERT - CUMBERBATCH ROLE - AVOID

for issue number one Kirk's face was half in the light and half in the dark. Uhura is exactly the same. The title of the movie Into Darkness is reflected here in the way that these two characters are being lit. They're moving into darkness. I don't think it reveals the villain here in any way until we know who that is. Right now it just looks like the lighting is symbolizing the title of the movie.

I wonder if they will be making terrible decisions that only we the viewers know will lead to awfulness.

Re: POSSIBLE SPOILER ALERT - CUMBERBATCH ROLE - AVOID

I have this feeling that uhura will play a very important role in the new film. As I am female fan, I for one am glad even though I know that it will piss of many TOS Trek fans who are already pissed at JJ Abrams Trek, Most people define TOS trek as the Kirk and Spock show with a little bit of Bones. Everybody else is just................oh well.

If you judge by the countdown comic for the first film, the characters that got front page in the comic book had a major influence on the plot. Secondly if you guys remember the leaked pictures, she and Spock where fighting Cummberbatch’s character and if I where to guess what happened based on those pictures, Cummberbatch beats up Spock and attacks her as you see her alone with Cummberbatch’s character holding a phraser to his face.

Perhaps he breaks her hand.

If they wanted to make her look sexy she should have been drawn doing her fan-dance.

Re: POSSIBLE SPOILER ALERT - CUMBERBATCH ROLE - AVOID

I am a big fan of the fan dance.

Maybe I'd like to be up on that dune myself, saving the galaxy with feathers.
