Well, it is that time again… we have a new X-Men #1. This series relaunches more than most people change their underwear. This relaunch in particular is starting with a bit of a twist, and would be more properly titled X-Women as it features some of the X-Men’s most famous heroines teaming up minus the gentlemen of the atom. Lead by Storm, the team features Shadowcat, Jubilee, Rachel Summers, Rogue, and Psyclocke.
(spoilers, maybe?) Can anyone explain just what is happening with Jubilee? She lost her powers, then was turned into a vampire, and now on these covers she looks back to her old self… um? I have only been following X-titles with “Factor”, “All New”, or “Wolverine and” in the titles… I guess I missed a few things.
Official Description: Because you demanded it! The X-Women finally get their own book, from critically acclaimed superstars Brian Wood and Olivier Coipel! 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. Against a backdrop of what seems like an alien invasion and an eons-spanning war between brother and sister, Storm steps up and puts together a team to protect the child and stop a new threat that could destroy all life on earth!
The Marvel comic will hit stores and the digital market place on May 29th, 2013. Will you be picking it up and following the adventures of the first X-Women team?
