Marvel reveals the new X-Men line-up

The new roster will debut in ‘X-Men’ #1 this July, by Gerry Duggan, Pepe Larraz and Marte Gracia.

Following the reveal earlier this week of who won the fan vote, Marvel has revealed the roster of the new team of X-Men that will debut during the upcoming Hellfire Gala storyline.

The team will headline the relaunched X-Men title, which debuts in July from Gerry Duggan, Pepe Larraz and Marte Gracia. The new team will be based in New York City, according to Duggan.

“It’s my privilege and honor to be reteamed with Pepe Larraz as we throw beautiful and deadly threats at the X-Men beginning in July,” Duggan said. “Mutants have saved themselves, and are now going to save the world. Krakoa will grow roots in the capital of the world, New York City, and the inaugural year will star Cyclops, Marvel Girl, Rogue, Wolverine, Synch, Sunfire, and Polaris. The threats to Earth will come fast and hit hard, and every page from Pepe and Marte will blow your hair back. See you in July.”

Here’s the description of the new X-Men title from Marvel: The current era of X-Men has evolved mutant storytelling like never before. No longer protecting a world that hates and fears them, the X-Men said goodbye to their dream of coexistence and founded a thriving mutant homeland. But in the aftermath of X OF SWORDS, original X-Men Cyclops and Marvel Girl realized that the world needed its premiere team of mutant Super Heroes. Things might be complicated between the nation of Krakoa and the rest of the Marvel Universe, but to the X-Men, things are simple—you do what’s right, you protect those who need protecting and you save the world we all share. This new team are the chosen champions of mutantkind, and they’re up for any battle to protect their people and their home planet.

In addition , Marvel also revealed a series of variant covers for the first four issues, featuring the new team:

Each character is drawn by a different “Marvel Stormbreaker” artist:

  • Juann Cabal—Professor X
  • Carmen Carnero—Marvel Girl
  • Peach Momoko—Sunfire
  • Iban Coello—Synch
  • R.B. Silva—Cyclops
  • Natacha Bustos—Wolverine
  • Patrick Gleason—Rogue
  • Joshua Cassara—Polaris

One thought on “Marvel reveals the new X-Men line-up”

  1. I’m just confused why Polaris is wearing BoomBoom’s costume in all the new artwork?? Replace the green jacket with a red one, make the dress black and yellow, and it’s BoomBoom’s outfit from when Pepe drew her in the eXtermination story line.

    Is marvel pulling a fast one on us and just recolouring the artwork to make us THINK Polaris won, and maybe BoomBoom got a dark horse win after all?

    Even in the gatefold cover where Polaris has an upper body pose by herself, if you look closely at her “powers”, you can almost even see a faded sphere under the green color… like one of BoomBooms time bombs painted over…
