Marvel’s Dysfunctional X-Team Adds Sinister, Scalphunter

Sorry, Squirrel Girl fans (and people who wish Marvel would stop retconning characters to not be mutants anymore), it looks like that wasn’t Doreen with Tippy Toe on her shoulder in the teaser for Marvel’s new X-book that purports to feature the most dysfunctional X-Men team ever. Marvel revealed the next two characters in the image by Stephen Segovia, and it looks like Mister Sinister (we guessed that one) and Scalphunter will join Nanny, Orphan Maker, Psylocke, and Havoc in the book that will launch in March.

 

That leaves just two characters to be revealed, as well as the creative team, since we don’t have confirmation Segovia will be the regular artist. The lineup has kept fans guessing about both the characters and the writer, and one of those guesses is Matthew Rosenberg, who not only has experience writing many of the characters here, but also has experience writing dysfunctional X-Men from New Mutants: Dead Souls, Multiple ManAstonishing X-Men and his Uncanny X-Men run. There was definitely a running theme there.

The last two characters should be revealed tomorrow, and presumably, at that point we’ll get both a title and a creative team (sorry, TBA fans, you lose again). Last chance to guess the remaining characters, so get to the comments and start arguing, folks!

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.
