Claremont Reveals The New Generation Of X-Men

How many future stories are we going to have?  Sure they can be fun but eventually they just get wiped from become even a remote possiblity when the next writer comes on and makes chanages that negate everything.  But I guess the idea is they are just meant to be fun.  We'll never really get to the "future" since comic time crawls so slowly to retain the status of the characters.  I'm not sure about another future X-Men story.  I tried reading X-Men: The End.  For being the end, it sure felt like it kept going on and on.  How many issues and books were there?  Regardless, I'm sure I'll pick this up.

You asked for it X-Fans and now the series voted for on Marvel.Com is here! Enter the extra-sized GeNext #1 (of 5), from legendary X-Men scribe Chris Claremont and artist Patrick Scherberger, introducing you to the children of the X-Men—but who are they? And what’s happened to the original X-Men? Packed full of extras including character design sketches with commentary from Claremont and more, this issue is a can’t-miss for X-Fans!

“I think people are going to get a kick out of this new generation of X-Men that Chris and Patrick Scherberger have created,” said Senior Editor Mark Paniccia. “They’re students expected to carry on the legacy of their forefathers and foremothers, but they’re also kids with aspirations of their own. What’s life like for a mutant in a world where most of the original X-Men are long gone? The story plays to Chris’s strengths in character development and Patrick’s art has an energy that makes this series really pop. It’s fun and tugs at your heart as the drama of these five very special young people unfolds and surprises.”

After 30 years of conflict and chaos, it’s time for an all-new, all-different X-Men—but can the X-Men’s children live up to their parents’ legacy? Find out in GeNext #1!
