Earlier today, X-Men editor Mark Paniccia promised to reveal most of the roster of the new X-Men Red series slowly throughout the day, a trickle of life-sustaining clickbait article material for comic book websites to get them through a case of the Mondays. The third ongoing core X-Men team book was revealed last Thursday, to be written by Tom Taylor with art by Mahmud Asrar and covers by Travis Charest. In the series, Jean Grey leads a new team of X-Men in a story that will feature “new uniforms, a new team headquarters, and exciting new characters,” as well as “dynamic hero moments, great character interactions, and a surprise villain at the end.”
In response, Bleeding Cool promised to publish multiple clickbait articles following Marvel’s reveals. We are holding to that promise, come hell or high water, so stay tuned!
