Quite a few eyebrows were raised last week when Marvel teased a new title called X-Treme X-Men, revealing no other info. What puts the X-Treme in X-Men?
Well, Dazzler, for one thing. At WonderCon today, Marvel revealed that she would be one of the key characters of the title, along with alternate reality versions of Wolverine, Emma Frost, and Nightcrawler.
The new ongoing series is written by Greg Pak and drawn by Stephen Segovia, with an issue #1 cover by Julian Totino. Pak wrote the Astonishing X-Men #44-47 storyline which introduced the alternate X-characters. Regarding Dazzler, he told iFanboy:
And that’s why Dazzler is so perfect for X-Treme — in our world, she’s the ultimate show biz, superhero survivor, an icon and inspiration and probably the semi-embarrassed star of her own “Behind the Music” doc. She’s wry and funny and she’s seen it all — but she’s also still searching for her true path.
