Ch-Ch-Changes to Solicits For X-Men #5 & #6 and New Mutants #5 & #6

Bleeding Cool previously reported changes for Marvel Comics X-Men #4 and New Mutants #4 but there are more to come. X-Men #5 and #6 were originally solicited thus;

X-MEN #5 & #6
JONATHAN HICKMAN (W) • #5 R. B. SILVA (A) #6 MATTEO BUFFAGNI (A)
MUTANTS ARE THE FUTURE
First, the Krakoan leaders attend an economic forum to show the humans what real power looks like. Then Mystique goes to extraordinary lengths to get what she wants.

The first half of that was moved to #4, but the solicitations now split and reads.

X-MEN #5
JONATHAN HICKMAN (W) • R. B. SILVA (A)
The X-Men, the most powerful heroes on the planet, deal with an old nemesis’ surprising return…

X-MEN #6
JONATHAN HICKMAN (W) • MATTEO BUFFAGNI (A)
Mystique goes to extraordinary lengths to get what she wants…

Something similar has occurred with New Mutants, originally solicited

NEW MUTANTS #5 & #6
(W) ED BRISSON) (A) MARC FAILLA
ARMOR LEADS THE NEW MUTANTS HOME
When Armor and her friends set off to bring their friends home from Krakoa, they thought it’d be an easy sell and a quick trip. Then everything went sideways and now they’re in serious trouble – looks like it’s time to call in the cavalry. But will that be enough to turn back the tide?

And now amended thus, as in the original solicits for #4…

NEW MUTANTS #5
(W) ED BRISSON) (A) MARC FAILLA
THE EXPLOSIVE RETURN OF CANNONBALL!
The team has reached the Shi’ar Galaxy only to find the empire in turmoil! Deathbird returns and she won’t let Bobby and Sam get in the way of what she wants!

NEW MUTANTS #6
(W) ED BRISSON) (A) MARC FAILLA
A simple visit to check in on old friends in the human world has gone wrong – dangerously wrong. With innocent lives on the line, Armor and the other young mutants have their hands tied… but escaping without collateral damage looks increasingly impossible.

A little bit of that fluidity at play…
