Marvel Comics Reveals New Astonishing X-Men
It's not X-Force, but a new Astonishing X-Men title.
Marvel Comics released the full image of the teaser with all the characters revealed including: Old Man Logan, Psylocke, Mystique, Bishop, Archangel, Fantomex, Rogue and Gambit.
The new Astonishing X-Men will be written by Charles Soule and hits this July, with artists to-be-announced.
“The book is designed to tell a very focused, specific story, with a few cool main villains, I’m writing it like a puzzle box, with new layers and reveals opening up every issue," Soule tells Marvel.com "So, you’ll never know exactly where it’s going to go next – but the structure is built in such a way that almost anything from the long, incredible history of the X-Men can pop up. If you think about these characters, they’ve been present or involved for virtually every major era of X history, all the big events. That’ll play a role in a big way.”
Old Man Logan, Archangel, Mystique, Rogue, Gambit, Psylocke and Fantomex. Together, they are the Astonishing X-Men. But what brings this eclectic collection of heroes together? A familiar menace has once again reared its ugly head – reborn, renewed and resurrected. To defeat one of their greatest foes and rescue one of their own, the X-Men’s greatest will assemble for a mission that will take them places you never thought they’d go!
