Marvel has revealed the creative team for the upcoming Uncanny X-Men relaunch, and it’s… pretty much everyone. Ed Brisson, Kelly Thompson, Matthew Rosenberg, Mahmud Asrar, R.B. Silva, Yildiray Cinar, and Pere Pérez will serve as the creative team, perhaps taking a little bit of inspiration from our own suggestion for the X-reboot, though with far less Chris Claremont than we’d hoped. And with a callback to “The Great One” Brian Bendis’s Avengers masterpiece? Will Iceman die in a tragic jetpack accident while screaming “not like this!?”
The book will kick off with a ten-part weekly story in which, according to a press release, “brings together nearly every mutant left on earth in a story that threatens to destroy them – an epic tale of mystery and tragic disappearance, with an adventure so earth-shattering, it could very well be the X-Men’s FINAL mission!” Marvel hints that things could change after that.
Check out the teaser below. Uncanny X-Men #1 hits stores in November, following the weekly X-Men Black event in October.
The press release follows with all the details:
August 10, 2018—This November, UNCANNY X-MEN returns with a new ongoing series and it all kicks off with a massive 10-part weekly story! X-MEN DISASSEMBLED brings together nearly every mutant left on earth in a story that threatens to destroy them – an epic tale of mystery and tragic disappearance, with an adventure so earth-shattering, it could very well be the X-Men’s FINAL mission!
Following UNCANNY X-MEN’s initial announcement at this year’s San Diego Comic Con, Marvel is excited to announce the full UNCANNY X-MEN creative teams! Featuring fan-favorite creators fresh from their own X-projects, UNCANNY X-MEN brings together acclaimed writers Ed Brisson (Extermination), Kelly Thompson (Mr. & Mrs. X) and Matthew Rosenberg (The Punisher, Phoenix Resurrection). The three superstar writers will join forces with all-star artists Mahmud Asrar (X-Men Red), R.B. Silva (X-Men Blue), Yildiray Cinar (Weapon X) and Pere Pérez (Rogue and Gambit).
Starting this November, the new ongoing series will launch with Disassembled, a stunning and spectacular 10-part weekly epic. Where the series goes from there?
That depends on who survives the experience…
