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?

wasn't it announced when brian wood quit his last series, that he would work on something wolverine related?

Posted by ShockTrooper

It a Cyclops solo title. One can wish.

"XX" could be another x-men title but XX is also the genetic marker for a girl a boy is XY.So it could be about all women characters.

Posted by Squalleon

Maybe X-treme X-men!

Edited by RedQueen

X-23 related? It could be referring to chromosomes... Maybe.

OH YES!!! Love Coipel and I'd love a female X book.

Posted by TheAcidSkull

x-23 please.

You're thinking of Paul Cornell, who left Demon Knights to do the new Wolverine book for Marvel, which was announced a few months back.

To me it looks like a new adjective-less X-men book, or at least it's equivalent. In any case, Woods has been kicking ass with Ultimate comics, so I'm intrigued.

If they add another X it would sell better

Posted by ScarletBatman

XX with a DNA strand behind it screams "Female Title" to me. Probably, X-Men related since the letter X is so tied with them.

X-23 is in Avengers Arena, she shouldn't get her own ongoing series (to keep the fantasy of the "only 1 may leave the Island shtick").

That's what I was thinking and the xx woman connection.

Scientific Wild Ass Guess.

She Hulk.

female title, xx means chromosome since the background shows it.

Posted by Gonzo33

Storm or Kitty Pryde book maybe? Brian Wood's X-Men book hasn't been great though...

Posted by Mutant God

X - X-Men/Mutant

XX - Woman

Blue Background - Blue Skin

Mystique gets her own book

Posted by Trodorne

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.

Posted by Or35ti

"Wood" and "XX"... There is so a porn joke in that teaser somewhere hahaha :)

Posted by Pwok21

It's probably a female mutant based on the hints.

Best guess is X-23 as she is defined by genetic manipulation, which fits with the theme.

Posted by Robrat93

I would love to see an all female team of mutants or an x-23 ongoing again hmmmmm I'm honestly stumped with this one

Posted by TheCrowbar

If this is another female led book with this teaser, I'm going to laugh and then be sad.

Posted by AgeofHurricane

Brian Wood AND Olivier Coipel ? LOLOLOLOLOLOLOLOL. One of the best current writers with his Alpha and Omega, recent Adjectiveless X-Men and his current stellar Utlimate X-Men PLUS a babe like Coipel ? I'm dreaming. I'm just dreaming.

I'm done.

Something fantastic MIGHT just come out of MN...MAYBE.

*off* this is just unreal...

Storm already has Uncanny X-Force. I'm honestly not sure. I, like most of you assume it will be something related to women. Or maybe it's something to do with some mutants going through second mutations?

Posted by TDK_1997

This is going to be female related title.

Thank God it's not an X-23 book cause she's stuck in Arena.

Hopefully it'll include new X-Men like Mercury, Surge, and hopefully Transonic!

You guys do know she's stuck in Avengers Arena killing her friends, right? It's not an X-23 book. (If it is, I'll be pissed. She doesn't deserve one if she kills Hazmat)

Cyclops, love him or hate him, is not a strong enough character to support his own book. The same reason characters like Nightcrawler, Storm etc never get solo books that last more than a year.

Posted by TheAcidSkull

@Cafeterialoca: ok i've heard enough of this, she WON'T kill hazmat and yes i understand she is stuck on avengers arena, but could you please keep it to yourself dammit.

Posted by Mutant God

then again its probably Xtreme X-Men with Dazzler another female mutant

Posted by BatWatch

Fooey! I soon as I saw that, I was thinking "X-Women" team, but I see others have already suggested it. There are certainly enough female mutants to support such a book.

It's the Marvel universe anything can happen Captain America is stuck in Dimension Z and he's in Avengers and Uncanny Avengers and Reed Richards is in space and he's in New Avengers anything can happen and nothing really is in order.

Posted by Spideycap

I'm gonna go with the Stepford Cuckoos, I think they are interesting enough to carry an ongoing.

Posted by Master_Thief

XX why not XY

Posted by Mucklefluga

Damn it. Everyone beat me to it saying it's got something to do with females because of the 'XX' and the DNA strand.

@Mutant God said:

X - X-Men/Mutant

XX - Woman

Blue Background - Blue Skin

Mystique gets her own book

That's a great shout.

@broo1232: But even Cullen Bunn said he couldn't use X-23 cause she's in Arena. If you allow her to be in other books, that would be unfair to the fans of the other characters who are forced to watch their favorites die in Arena. So yeah, it's not X-23.

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

It's not X-23.

Posted by blackkitty

I wish, but she's thrown into that Avengers arena so, she can't appear in any books until that ends. Talk about stupid.

Posted by broo1232

@Cafeterialoca: Just hoping.

Posted by Novemberx2

X-Men v X-Men the sequel to AvX no one wants?

Posted by dondave

Please be an X-23 solo

Posted by crimsonspider89

Not going to be a X-23 solo. She is off limits due to Arena. Bunn even stated so.

Sorry.

Posted by comedyknight

I would think it's x-23 related because the whole reason she was female was because when cloning wolveirne, they were only able to salvage his x chromosome.

Posted by AgeofHurricane

If this promo simply constituted of an "X-23" in capitals, then i'd understand the X-23 hysteria and so many wanting it be focused around her, but it does not...so...no.

Edited by frochez

One or both of the 'X's could actually be the roman numeral for '10'- after all, 'Weapon X' originally meant 'Weapon 10'. So this could be hinting to a possible failed attempt at cloning Wolverine: 'Weapon X-10' would be X-23's older brother/sister. Or, it could be 'Weapon-10.10', which would be more in line with the government experimenting on animals/people/mutants like Wolverine and Fantomex.

Posted by telepathic666

an all female team, i like it!

Posted by scuzz2.0

It CANT be X-23 for the reasons stated before, plus the creative team is too big for an X-23 ongoing.

This is adjectives with Pixie. and hopefully Mercury, Dust and Surge

Posted by c2thaj

It's short for 20XX.

New MegaMan comic, yay.
