The X-Men-themed event titles kick off this summer.
Jonathan Hickman said “See you later” to Marvel back in 2015, departing the company to focus on creator-owned books at Image, like East of West, The Dying and the Dead and other titles.
It’s later, and at C2E2 Marvel announced Hickman will return to the company this year to write two X-Men-focused event series, House of X and Powers of X. (The second one is pronounced “Powers of 10.”)
“We are excited to have Jon back with the Marvel family, and we could not have asked for a better creative team to help usher the X-Men into a whole new era,” said Marvel Editor in Chief C.B. Cebulski. “While we can’t reveal too much about the story just yet, these new stories will redefine the X-Men and their place in the Marvel Universe. This is a historic moment both new and passionate fans won’t want to miss.”

Donny Cates, Ryan Stegman and Frank Martin re-team on a new event series starring the Spider-Man villain.
Marvel has announced their next Spider-Man related event, Absolute Carnage, at this weekend’ C2E2 convention in Chicago. The series will feature the symbiote-wearing character Carnage as he goes hunting for “every single character who has ever worn a symbiote.”
Donny Cates, the current writer of Venom, will write the series, who re-teams with artist Ryan Stegman and colorist Frank Martin.
“Cletus Kasady is back, and he is deadlier than he’s ever been,” Cates teases in the video announcement. “ABSOLUTE CARNAGE encompasses every single character who has ever worn a symbiote and every symbiote that has ever been, going all the way back to when Peter found the black suit. Going from there to Maximum Carnage to Venomized to everything…everyone is a target.”
