Salvador Larroca Covers X-TREME X-MEN #1

Marvel releases a look at the variant cover to the first issue.

We heard back during WonderCon that there was going to be a new X-TREME X-MEN series by Greg Pak and Stephen Segovia. The first issue isn't on sale until next month but Marvel has just released a look at the variant cover by Salvador Larroca.

This isn't the X-Men you're familiar with.

Marvel is proud to present your first look at superstar artist Salvador Larroca’s variant cover to X-Treme X-Men #1, an all-new ongoing series spinning directly out of the pages of Astonishing X-Men! Follow the team of Captain Howlett, Emmeline Frost, Kid Nightcrawler, and Dazzler as they embark on an epic journey saving the multiverse! But with one of the X-Men lost between dimensions and no guaranteed way home, will the adventure be over before it begins? New York Times Best Selling author Greg Pak and red-hot artist Stephen Segovia bring you the answers in X-Treme X-Men #1, coming to comic shops everywhere, theMarvel Comics app and the Marvel Digital Comics Shop this July.

Posted by Jonny_Anonymous

Posted by antemiusenteri

Though i really will be upset if Storms not in this , i will read it , i loved Emma before she became Cyclopes's bitch , am looking forward to seeing her shine on her own

Another x-men title...

Posted by FinnVarra

Well this is some rubbish. Why does Marvel always insist on doing this bait and switch crap with titles like this. People are going to buy it expecting it to be like the old X-treme X-Men title and instead it will basically get Exiles. WTH.

I'm starting to notice more titles spinning out of other series like Age of Apocalypse spinning out of Uncanny X-Force, this series from Astohnishing, Avengers 1959 from The New Avengers, the list goes on and on. I might look into this title but first I must read the story arc these guys were in and see if I like them or not.

Posted by KainScion

@FinnVarra: the old x-treme title was a sh*tfest. and it clearly says multiverse adventures. that in my book at least means EXILES.

Edited by Mr. Kamikaze

So from the pages of Astonishing X-Men. Can someone fill me as to what happened in Astonishing? I didn't start reading until Marjorie's run. How does Dazzler fit in? As i remember reading that it would be 616 Dazzler...when did she get all time displaced and junk?

Only picking this up for Dazzler and Kid Nightcrawler

They replaced storm with everyone.

Another goddamn X-Men title? Why not try and give someone like Strange or an obscure street leveler a title?

Posted by blindisaac

That cover looks ridiculous due to the gun so I will buy it just for that.

Posted by AgeofHurricane

Wow. What a complete and colossal slap in the face to everything the dream team of Chris Claremont and Larroca accomplished back in 01.

Posted by Outside_85

How...uninspiring.

Posted by AgeofHurricane

At least the first arc's going to be focusing on Storm (in a sense) :D.

Posted by haydenclaireheroes

I might give the first issue a try

Posted by jaredbright

better than Larroca's usual stuff. His Pencils (?) are so bare-boned you may as well co-credit the colorist whose work is shown more.

I know the guy can draw, I've seen some old pencils his did in he 90s.

Im sorry ...what now..!?

Posted by doordoor123

Posted by DATNIGGA

AM REALLY TIRED OF EMMA FROST

What's next? X-Factor becomes X-Men Investigations? Fantastic Four becomes Avengers: Baxter Building? Marvel becomes Avengers/X-Men Comics? The sad thing is I keep reading....

Posted by Scarlet_Rogue

Sooo.....This is Exiles?

Agreed on the bait and switch. Though I did love the Exiles, and X-treme kinda ran into a wall near without resolving a whole lot.

Posted by Hareil0079

I'm still gonna pick it up

Posted by Blood1991

I'll give the first arc a try, but not having Storm in it is rather disapointing. Still nice to see Dazzler getting some love.

Edited by Baddamdog

Please just put Blink on this title, apart from Dazzler, and the prospect of having a fun Nightcrawler around, the characters completely un-interest me.

Posted by Sleepbutnodream15

Hopefully they bring back some of the exiles like Morph, Blink, and maybe even Spider-Man 2099

Posted by Osian2

X-TREME X-MEN: because if we can't put Wolverine in every book then we will just start using alternate versions of him.

Doesn't Wolverine get enough exposure?

Posted by Aheld92

You know I was kinda curious, but Wolverine did what he does best.... he killed my interest

Posted by tchalla3000

Posted by JamDamage

what is this?

Posted by fivestarga

Keep any form of Emma away from Wolverine. She is Cyke's...

Posted by sora_thekey

Exiles...?

Scott was tricked into going into an alternate universe by an alternate Storm who was the love interest of alternate Cyke, where an alternate Xavier uses mutant powers from several alternate realities to power up a machine keeping the alternate reality they are in from being destroyed. As Main Cyke discovers his position he meets up with an alternate Cyke's widow alternate Emma aka Emmeline, alternate Wolverine who is actually much more enjoyable than main wolverine, alternate Nightcrawler who resembles a younger Nightcrawler from the X-men Evolution tv-series. While in the alternate reality Cyclops sabotages the machine, defeats alternate Xavier, before being dragged back to his main universe by main storm and main Emma all the while being able to convince alternate Storm, alternate Emma, alternate Nightcrawler, Alternate Wolverine, and Alternate Shadowcat to save the alternate world the right way...

Also alternate.

this isn't gonna past issue 7

Posted by DrewHLMW

awesome cover but I'm not interested in multiverse x-men travelling through other multiverses. I'll stick with 616 and ultimate

Posted by RedheadedAtrocitus

Multiversal characters interest me. I might give this a go, not really sure yet.

Posted by Miss_Garrick

Marvel is ripping themselves off. Exiles much?

I KNOW!! Someone please kill her and all alternate reality versions!

Posted by KainScion

all i see here is: people complaining about wolverine, people that dont know anything about the characters and still complain and people complaining that storm isnt in it. dont post if you dont like it.

Posted by Veitha

Emma looks good but if there must be a Dazzler series, why didn't they do something like "Dazzler and the X-Kids" or something about the street team with Dazzler, Boom Boom, Lifeguard and someone else? Uff, i'd love something like that

Posted by AgeofHurricane

Exactly. This title, as good as the premise is, is a complete waste. It would have been better to have "Dazzler and The X-Kids" or something focusing on Dazzler and the rest of her street team, this is just a waste. What's worse, they're crapping on the ethos of the REAL X-Treme X-Men. I'll still pick it up for Dazzler, though, but still.
