Marvel Announces 'XX' Project from Brian Wood & Olivier Coipel

Is this another X-Men title or something more?

We're seeing most of the previously announced Marvel NOW! books hit the shelves. There's still more coming in the next couple months but it appears Marvel hasn't announced all of the new titles just yet. Today on USA Today, another new title is being teased.

Brian Wood and Olivier Coipel will be joining forces on what might appear to be a dirty comic title but we know that isn't really the case. With the DNA strand coming off the letters, we have to assume it's for another X-Men title. Chances are, based on previous teasers, the title may not necessarily be "XX."

With ALL-NEW X-MEN and the upcoming UNCANNY X-MEN by Brian Michael Bendis, we have to wonder what this other X-Men title could be focusing on. We'll have to wait until more information is released.

Could XX have anything to do with the XX chromosome? So maybe this will be an X-Men book with just female characters?

Either X-23 (PLEASE!!!!!) or maybe Mystique. Regardless, I will try it out, and hope to God it is a 2.99 title.

That is what I was thinking

Posted by Teerack

If Marvel was still smart this would be a buddy cop series starting Cyclops and Wolverine and the tittle would be X & X.

@haydenclaireheroes: same here

Posted by InnerVenom123

Another Wolverine book.

Posted by Miss_Garrick

Yawn.

Posted by Nightwing82

maybe New Mutants!!

Edited by time

A perfect all girl team would be, Storm, Frenzy, Psylocke, X-23, Jubilee, Domino, Sage and Warbird.

If marvel wanted to be smart, they could use this open idea of a title to showcase individual mutant characters all across the globe and have them feature in their own story archs.

I think that's a good idea, I always think the writers should do that.

x-23 please.

Please Please Please Be True, I wanna throw my money at something besides all new X-men.

And I Love Coipel's Art. Can dreams come true?

Definitely an X-Book, definitely a female led book. My best guess is a new X-23 title. But who knows. This is one of the first Marvel Now mini-teasers that actually has me intrigued to find out what it is.

Posted by JamesKM716

@RedQueen: That's my guess

Posted by MadeinBangladesh

This will be an all-female X-team

Posted by GothamRed

XX, maybe it'll just be soft core porn. Good thing there isn't another X, that might turn some heads

Posted by Cavemold

ill go with X-23

It a Cyclops solo title. One can wish.

blue isnt his color. maybe its beast on going?

Edited by Umbraa

Interesting. It's probably in all likeyhood a all-female (X) title or possibly x-23. Who knows if x-23 will be in Avengers Arena come April? I think they are inside of a game or virtual reality anyway. I would say its very likely a Storm led team because of some hints and rumors I have seen and heard...but Sam Humphries last interview about his team being outsiders, his plan for Storm and Besty and not being able to use Jubes in his X-force has me second guessing. Either way, next week we will find out. I guess this is the last round of Marvel NOW which has been pretty good IMHO so far.

@ShockTrooper: i wish!

Posted by SandMan_

Ugh, more X-Men? Do something with Marvel Man already...

Posted by hunter5024

I wish it was X-23, but if it's not written by Marjorie Liu I don't know how I'd feel about it.

Posted by NXH

Wait. Isn't Uncanny X-Force a all female (and half a man) X-Team?

Edited by comicon1234

XX= female, DNA strand has 23 pairs of chromsomes in it, Logical answer= X-23 And before anymore people say that she's in avengers arena, it's a comicbook, they can do whatever they want. It's also coming in April, a lot can appen in 4 months.

Edited by bunkerbuster05

Oh god. If Brian Wood is writing a new X-23 book, I'll die a happy man!

Posted by Crimsonlord53

Oh boy oh boy oh boy X 23 pleas anything else works but X 23 would be awesome.

X-23!!!! Please,please,please,please!

@Cafeterialoca:

It won't be her fault if she does kill Hazmat, it will be the fault of Dennis Hopeless as the writer. I love Hazzy too, but it's still Hopeless' brainchild.

Posted by HAWK2916

Xtreme Xforce. A new team featuring X-23, Hellion, Chamber, ArcLight, and Surge

Posted by Roddy010

God I hope Storm will be presented under Wood and Copiel's pen/pencil. My favorite artist and one of my favorite writers on the same book talk about an awesome birthday present. Thank You universe!

Posted by neiliusprime

it could be, but Marvel already has an all female team in Fearless Defenders coming out in February. Maybe X-23?

Posted by TheAmazingImmortalMan

@Mutant God said:

X - X-Men/Mutant

XX - Woman

Blue Background - Blue Skin

Mystique gets her own book

I want an X23 title but I would not be mad at a Mystique tilte either

Posted by Cafeterialoca

@Target_X: If X-23 actually remembers Hazmat and learns from the experience, I'll be forgiving. But I would HATE if she kills Hazmat then goes off and plays with Jubilee when she leaves Arena.

Posted by knighthood

"XX" = female. "X" = X. "XX" = 20. If there was a triple helix in the background I'd say its X-23. She a mutant right?

Maybe it is a group of 20 female x-characters. :)

I think you unlocked the code. G'work guv'ner!

Posted by batshrine

I hope they feature Dust in it!!!

Posted by RedheadedAtrocitus

I suppose a female mutant title sure. The double helix in back kinda helps provide corroboration to that.

Posted by HAWK2916

An all female team would be interesting considering that I think I saw somewhere that they are reviving the Sisterhood of Mutants.

I also thought of it somehow being Xavier's Xmen. A group tasked before his death to take over or a group implanted with a trigger upon his death to go into action.

Posted by Xorion

it seems like a mutant femme fatales title but I would love it to be new x-men title with hellion, surge, prodigy and others

Posted by thatlad

X-23 is the only book ill be interested in

Posted by AgeofHurricane

I'd rather this not be an X-23 title. She's not marketable/important enough for Brian Wood to write her, and certainly not good enough for Coipel to waste needless hours illustrating her. That'd be a real waste.

Lol no.

Posted by chocobojam

Now we know who will be the only one to come out in the arena alive!!

Posted by DougCL

Brian Wood always writes strong female characters and female characters in leadership roles, so if its anything but an all-female/female focused X-men book i will be shocked.

Posted by wmwadeii

Rogue or X-23 are my bets.

Posted by Yung ANcient One

I love these teasers. I honestly can't narrow down a guess, but I love seeing fans decipher it so well

Even if they end up being wrong. X23

is

a

good

guess(+)

Posted by lykopis

So many ideas -- lots of them great. It can be a Weapon X thing -- clones thing -- who knows.

I want X-23. So that means it won't have her, according to my streak lately.

Posted by fenixREVOLUTION

X-23, Wood could knock it out of the park. Make it so Marvel!

My bet is... Xmen Xtreme

...You DO realize there's an Xtreme X-Men book out currently, right?

Hopefully.

It's not X-23.

It's probably not. But, I can have some vague sense of hope that it is. My vote goes to an X-woman book to replace the X-men book he just finished.

Posted by Perfect 10

an x-women book would be awesome but im not that lucky so i'll believe it when i see it. well there is no excalibur or new mutants book so could it be a place for those characters? (excalibur is very unlikely but i loved the series). so many mutants are missing in this marvel now universe. no x-man, blink, or surge to name a few.

Posted by Perfect 10

@Trodorne: that would be awesome too bad their not smart :(

Posted by HAWK2916

I thought about a title like Xavier's Xmen. Maybe a group that had been picked as the new xmen on Xavier's death. Or somehow he's implanted a triiger in these mutants to go into action when he died.

An X-23 led team would be cool, too. Personally I want X-23 leading a team of Chamber, Surge, Hellion and Arclight or if not Arclight I'll take Magma. Adding Pixie and of the Cuckoos would be interesting too.
