The Surviving Original X-Men Reunited with Professor X in Astonishing X-Men Annual

Posted by May 22, 2018 Comment

Matthew Rosenberg is taking over Astonishing X-Men in July, but he’s already getting an Astonishing X-Men Annual to write in August, with artist Travel Foreman (in place of regular series artist Greg Land). Can anyone stop Rosenberg’s steady takeover of the entire X-Men line? If so, they’ll have their work cut out for them, as the Annual will feature a reunion between Charles Xavier… er, sort of… and his original students… kinda.

Archangel, The Beast, Iceman, and Jean Grey — the grown-up versions — will meet X, the reincarnated mind of Professor Xavier that took over the body of Fantomex in previous issues of Astonishing X-Men. Sadly, Cyclops will not be present, as he is currently dead and Rosenberg, high on the ego of writing four X-Books in August (that’s more than three!), belligerently refuses to bring him back to life.

Galling. Doesn’t he know the customer is always right?!

In any case, check out the solicit for Astonishing X-Men Annual #1, as well as Rosenberg’s three other August X-books.

About Jude Terror

A prophecy says that in the comic book industry's darkest days, a hero will come to lead the people through a plague of overpriced floppies, incentive variant covers, #1 issue reboots, and super-mega-crossover events.

Scourge of Rich Johnston, maker of puns, and seeker of the Snyder Cut, Jude Terror, sadly, is not the hero comics needs right now... but he's the one the industry deserves.
