A bright new tomorrow is coming for the Children of the Atom as the X-Men race full speed into ResurrXion! Today, Marvel is excited to release its first trailer timed with the upcoming release of all-new X-titles – X-MEN GOLD, X-MEN BLUE, GENERATION X, WEAPON X, ICEMAN, JEAN GREY, CABLE, OLD MAN LOGAN, ALL-NEW WOLVERINE and ASTONISHING X-MEN! Launching this spring in your local comic shop, these new, ongoing series bring fans a new beginning for these merry mutants – one that is sure to please fans old and new! You asked for it, you got it! The ResurrXion of the X-Men is here!
This new resurrection of the X-Men brand after the fall out of Inhumans vs X-Men is a bit of deja vu, as we have seen the team split many times before. In this latest split of teams we see the original five (Cyclops, Jean Grey, Beast, Ice Man and Angel) as the Blue team, while the Gold team will be lead by Kitty Pryde along with Colossus, Nightcrawler, Old Man Logan, and Prestige. These new stepping stone books release next month.
X-Men Gold will be written by Marc Guggenheim with art and cover by Ardian Syaf, releasing April 5th, 2017. X-Men Blue will be written by Cullen Bunn with art by Matteo Buffagni and Jorge Molina with cover by Arthur Adams releasing April 12, 2017. I can't say I am particularly looking forward to one over the other. It will be interesting to see though what they do with Astonishing X-Men.
