Let's face it, the female characters in the X-Men are some of the best ones created. So many great ones exist and so many important stories have involved them. It was announced back in January that we'd be seeing a new X-Men title featuring an all-female cast. Today, Marvel has released a first look at next month's X-MEN #1.
Storm, Rogue, Jubilee, Kitty Pryde, Rachel Grey & Psylocke redefine what it means to be a Child of the Atom in X-MEN #1, kicking off the all-new ongoing series by the blockbuster creative team of writer Brian Wood (Ultimate Comics X-Men) and artist Olivier Coipel (Avengers VS. X-Men)! An old enemy shows up at the X-Men’s door, seeking asylum from an ancient evil come back to Earth. Meanwhile, Jubilee has come home, and she’s brought with her an orphaned baby who might hold the key to the Earth’s survival…or its destruction! With an imminent alien invasion and an eons-spanning war between brother and sister around the corner, Storm steps up and puts together a team to protect the child and stop a new threat that could destroy all life in the Marvel Universe!
This May, Wood and Coipel take X-Men in an all-new, all-different direction in X-MEN #1!
