Major X #1 was a massive sales success for Marvel, presumably thanks to excitement built by its titular lead character’s x-citing first appearance in Spider-Man/Deadpool #47. But in Major X #2, with artist Brent Peebles taking over the art so superstar creator Rob Liefeld can focus on the writing, Major X will introduce a new character who hasn’t appeared anywhere else: The X-Ential, the mysterious leader of the X-istence.
What do we know about the X-Ential? Not much, other than the fact that they’re about two feet shorter than Major X. Perhaps a descendant of Wolverine’s? Though, the X-Ential doesn’t say “bub” at any time in the preview…
We also get to learn a little bit about what apocalypse befell Earth’s mutants, leading them to flee to the X-Istence at the X-Ential’s behest, and it’s all because of another new character… The Catalyst!
Who wouldn’t want to flee to another dimension after that? Traffic in the Bay Area is bad enough as it is.
Major X #2 hits stores on Wednesday.
