Marvel reveals ‘X-Men Black’ details, teases ‘Uncanny X-Men’ return

Chris Claremont, Scott Bachalo, Seanan McGuire, Shawn Crystal and more tackle some of the X-Men’s greatest villains.

At Comic-Con International in San Diego today, Marvel revealed the details behind one teaser and delivered another at the same time.

X-Men Black, which seemed to be following in the footsteps of X-Men Blue, Gold, Red, etc., isn’t an ongoing series like the others. It’s a series of one-shots starring various X-Men villains that, most noticeably, will see legendary Uncanny X-Men writer Chris Claremont return to the franchise to write Magneto, while Chris Bachalo returns for Emma Frost.

Here’s a rundown of the one-shots:

  • Magneto #1, by writer Chris Claremont and artist Dalibor Talajic
  • Mojo #1, by writer Scott Aukerman and artist Nick Bradshaw
  • Mystique #1, by writer Seanan McGuire and artist Scott Aukerman
  • Juggernaut #1, by writer Robbie Thompson and artist Shawn Crystal
  • Emma Frost #1, by writer Leah Williams and artist Chris Bachalo

In addition, Marvel also teased the return of Uncanny X-Men, the flagship title of the X-Men for decades before it was cancelled in 2017 and replaced by X-Men Blue and X-Men Gold. No crearive team or team members have been announced yet, but editor Jordan D. White did say they have a plan:

The new Uncanny X-Men title is set to debut in November, so I imagine it won’t be too long before the creative team and team members are revealed.
