Dawn of X

Found some news out about the X-Men, Avengers, Batman or even? The monthly previews have been released ? Or perhaps there's a rumour you've heard, then post it here for the world to see.

Am I the only person hoping some of the cover costumes are just for show?

Do we know who that is floating in the back of the X-Men cover? I mean I know who it looks like but I’m hoping I’m wrong...

So is teen Jean in one book and original Jean in another? And do we have two Psylockes now? Sorry folks, I’ve been out of the loop since Secret Wars.

The time-displaced O5 went back to their original time. Their memories of their time spent in the present were surpressed until the modern day, where each of their modern incarnations gained access to the memories of their younger selves. This was detailed in the Extermination miniseries.

Prior and concurrently with that, the adult Jean Grey returned and set up her own X-Men team in the pages of Phoenix: Resurrection and X-Men: Red.

Psylocke was forced to recreate her original body during the Hunt for Wolverine: Mystery in Madripoor series, Kwannon then mysteriously took over her own body again and has recently been seen in the pages of Uncanny X-Men.



@Blackcyclops: Saaaaaaame.

Sad Monet & Husk are absent from any main teams. Magneto & Xavier are missing as well, which does make me more curious how HOX / POX will end that these characters may be put on hold -for the most part until Wave 2. Unless Xavier dies again by the end, and that's why he's got a memorial.

Very weird to see Apocalypse on an X-team, but I am sure Hickman can make it work. lol

SO far, the books seem different & there will be some new interactions. But nothing's really grabbing me yet. Have to see what Wave 2 will do. But that won't be until Oct. solicits at best.

I just noticed that Cypher has a Warlock arm on the New Mutants cover.

I also think that the main book might not have a set roster but rather pull in characters as needed/by storyline as was Fraction's intent during his run on Uncanny.

@UrbanExplorer: I was hoping that wasn’t the answer. But maybe I’m not giving the character a fair shot.

While I’m showing my ignorance: is the Apocalypse in Excalibur possibly Evan? Or is Evan gone?

Since every book has a villain, it's probably real Apocalypse, and not Evan.

Evan just recently died. While it's a possibility the fact that he's referred to as Apocalypse rather than Genesis makes me think this En Sabah Nur.

Ah. Thank you!

Honestly, these announcements have me incredibly excited. I stopped buying new titles after Secret Wars because of multiple frustrations but Excalibur, X-Force, New Mutants, and Marauders all look like such good concepts that I guess I’m going to give Marvel another go.

OK this is really exciting. X-Force and Excalibur and Marauders for me, please. Probably New Mutants too. Only a couple glaring omissions, character wise - namely, Polaris, Forge, Nightcrawler (is he somewhere I missed?), Northstar, Dazzler, and Magneto. We also don't have ANY of the kids, which is incredibly disappointing, but they may announce a teen book too. I hate the idea of a Summers family book, but if X-Men is a rotating book, I'll be ok with one Summers arc. Jean needs to get out of that classic costume ASAP, I hate it, and it's part of the thing I dont' like about Hickman (he's actually a really male-centric writer, and with X-Men being a more female heavy roster, I can see me not liking his stuff still). I really, REALLY, want to see Northstar, Dazzler and the kids show up somewhere, and it'd be nice to have some other surprises like Cecelia Reyes or Marrow, M, or Husk.

Some interesting character surprises - Pyro (new or old?), SAGE, the dead ones, Mondo, and Vulcan being the biggest.

I don't like how much Kid Cable there is and a lot of characters I love are missing, but the three books I mentioned above look great, and I can easily avoid the others (but I'll probably pick up X-Men anyway). Also, really freaking cool that three of the books have LGBTQ characters.

Vulcan is actually a good guy, but being left and forgotten thanks to Xavier made him... unstable

M and Husk have shown up on some House of X covers, so it's likely they'll be in play somewhere. Plus, this is just the first wave of books so there's every chance a lot of characters we haven't seen yet will pop up in these books.

I hope that Rictor being on his own in Excalibur doesn't mean he and Shattybuns are on a break again.

I think Gabriel used up any goodwill he had after he left Earth and turned despot. Not too mention killing Corsair, torturing his brother, niece and the Starjammers, and blowing up entire planets.

Ah damn I eyerolled to the wrong. I thought Anna quoted again :lol:

I meant up until he, Darwin, Petra, and Sway were „killed“ on Krakoa when they tried to rescue the X-Men.

And Xavier mind wiped everyone to forget about the team.

A few things said like around by editors and stuff as it wrapped up:
The use of Apoccy was inspired by Justice League Odyssey using Darkseid (their costumes kinda look similar in the covers)...

Don’t think that just cause Vulcan is an X-Man or that all the villains will stay on the good sides.

Jean is going to be really important going forward...they’re holding off a Wolvie solo title for now.

They understand that everybody has a favorite but it’s not realistic to think you’ll see them all. Hickman specifically said these chaeacters were picked because people wanted them (and they survive HoX/PoX)...that statement made me think of Cable’s post from last month. I wonder are they friends? Lol

Somebody in the crowd said something to the effect of “thank you for no forced X-Men diversity” and Hickman said the X-Men are diversity. And if He could just to piss him off he’d make everybody gay and then told dude to f*** off! That got some loud applause lmao

This looks pretty exciting and I like how all titles seem to have unexpected members (freaking Mondo!).

I kinda wish Excalibur had some more established Excalibur members or at least more than one British member. But I'm still keen to check it out.

The fact that X-Men appears to be entirely Summers/Grey's plus Wolverine makes me chuckle

Well, he still probably murdered less people than Bishop.

Still, I'm very curious as to why the villains are with the X-men way more than the actual line-ups.

Damn, I saw a poor quality picture of the New Mutants cover and thought Cypher was Cannonball. Was also really hoping for Siryn in Fallen Angels. I don't think there's an X-Man who's had a rougher recent history than she has.

Mildly disappointing, but there's a lot of exciting news and maybe Sam will be a part of Wave 2.

Y'all, Lifeguard is in the X-Men Roster picture. Cannonball is there as well. Still no Siryn anywhere though.

There's this interesting tweet from Rosenberg in response to an asshole regarding the resurrection of the characters he killed off. Maybe I won't have to eat crow after all!?

Lol...

I’m sorry Magnus the Psylocke redesign is like one of my favorite costume changes in recent memory, so to see it go for the bathing suit just makes me sad. And Jean’s Marvel Girl costume wasn’t even a good costume back in the day...at least Emma got something stylish.

Just proves who has the better fashion sense I guess.

Anybody else kinda think Jean also needs a new hair look? Lol

So does Kurt btw...

@token: I know it’s blasphemous but I would love for Cannonball to join to the GotG...I imagine Rocket riding on his shoulders and shooting while he’s blasting away...it’s a super comic-booky image though lol
